Every journey begins with a single step.
How To Get Started:
Potential Areas of Focus
Many clients have a very specific goal in mind: to lose weight. You don't need a nutrition expert to tell you that the key to losing weight is to eat better and exercise more. But in reality, weight loss is much more complicated than that. Calories vs nutrients, sugar vs fat, vegan vs paleo, no carb vs slow carb... ahh!
There are many ways to approach weight loss, and there isn't a a one-size-fits-all solution. I like to combine my knowledge on multiple dietary theories and create a program tailored for each individual client. My program is geared towards the non-extreme, and towards something that is enjoyable and sustainable over the long run, and usually coached over 6 months so we can work through the ups-and-downs together.
Peak Energy and Performance
Many clients are relatively healthy, but are still looking for that extra boost that can help them perform better in life. They want to OPTIMIZE. They want to run their first half marathon, 10k, or triathlon. They want to figure out how better nutrition and health habits can help them achieve their athletic goals, or career goals.
For these clients, the coaching programs are highly customized. Some clients want advice, some just want a sounding board for their ideas, and some just want accountability. Coaching sessions can be scheduled on a set program or on an as-needed basis.
Many clients want a broad approach to improving their health. There isn't one specific issue or goal that they want to work on, but see opportunities for improvements in many areas. We can customize a 3-month or 6-month program to hit multiple areas of health over time.
Health is not just about food and diet, but also about exercise, relationships, career, spiritual, and other life factors that relate to your overall well being. Kale doesn't help if you are stressed. Broccoli won't do much if you aren't getting good sleep at night. As a health coach, I can integrate all these aspects in my support of a client, and tailor each program to support a client's individual needs.
Implementing Positive Habits That Last
Many clients have set goals or New Year's Resolutions over and over, without seeing any lasting changes. They know what positive/healthy habits they should be doing, but behavior change is tough, making lifestyle changes can feel burdensome and inconvenient, and sticking to a new habit or letting go of a bad habit can be painful. A health coach can help you overcome some of the barriers, and tackle some of the challenges we all face in making lasting positive change.
I'm a certified Habit Coach and have studied many frameworks for achieving goals and implementing habits that last. I coach many clients on positive habits on a platform called Coach.me, which is a very inexpensive option for digital coaching on your smart phone. I also coach clients over a 3 or 6-month program with bi-weekly meetings.
Career and Lifestyle Design
Many young professionals need career advice, but don't have a lot of support once they leave college when they need it the most. Resumes, interviews, and approaching the job market is complicated. Career decisions are tough. Entrepreneurship is even tougher. As a business coach who spent 10 years mentoring twenty-somethings on their careers and first-time entrepreneurs on their businesses, and a recruiter who understands the job market, I can offer a lot of advice.
It all starts with self-awareness. I can help clients uncover their vision, values, and priorities. Approximately 80,000 hours of your life are spent in your job, so obviously career decisions are important, and career success makes up a huge part of your overall success. But it's not the only important thing in life. Let's take a design approach to building the career and life you want.
“Jarric far exceeded my expectations as a coach. He is one of the most personable coaches I’ve ever met and he has saved my butt from many situations just by being an extremely nonjudgmental yet helpful coach. I’ve received thousands of dollars of value IMO in just two months. He genuinely wants to see you win & has the patience of the marathon runner he is! Best decision of the year for me easily."
“Jarric has been an amazing guide and has provided a great support system on my quest to become healthier. Over the past 4 months I’ve lost over 25 pounds after decades of struggling with my weight. I feel so much healthier because of the eating changes and workout routine I’ve started. After many false starts over the years he has helped me find what I consider to be the easiest and most sustainable approach to getting healthier that I’ve ever tried.”
