  • Potential Areas of Focus

    Weight Loss

    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.

    Holistic Health

    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.

     

     

  • Coaching Philosophy

    I believe that if information was the answer, we'd all be billionaires with perfect abs...

    That's a quote from Derek Sivers, and one of my favorite quotes of all time. You can find the answer to all your questions in a book or on the internet. There is a How-to blog post or YouTube tutorial for everything. Yet still, we all struggle with living the life we really want. The value of a coach isn't in the advice or information you receive. It's in the guidance, accountability, motivation, and support that comes with a coach. And also the personal accountability and discipline that is built even after the coaching is over.

    I believe in the 10% difference...

    90% of coaching is self-coaching. Action, repetition, and personal reflection are far greater teachers than a coach. Because of this, I think that the magic really happens in between coaching sessions. But I also believe that coaching is the 10% difference. We all face challenges, setbacks, burnout, boredom, anxiety, and fear when trying to achieve our goals. The probability of success is 10X greater because of the 10% difference that a coach can make.

    I believe in a highly customized approach...

    In nutrition school I was taught about bio-individuality, that a diet or approach that works for one person doesn't mean it will work for another. I think that listening is the most important skill of a coach, and is crucial to figure out what a client needs. There are no scripts for my practice, and instead I try and team up with clients to create the best possible program, one that gives highly tailored support.

    I believe that it has to be fun...

    Because if it isn't fun, then it won't last. When I stopped drinking, it was challenging until it became fun. When I gave up eating meat, it was challenging until it became fun. When I started running, it was challenging until it became fun. Everything can be fun, as long as you find it or create it or change it to be. And as a coach, if we can't laugh at ourselves and have a little fun every now and again, then we shouldn't be doing this!

    "Jarric is incredible!! Not only did I hit my weight loss goal, I got so much more than I thought I needed. Not only am I physically healthy, I am mentally healthy. Weight loss can be a vulnerable topic, but when I wasn't doing so great with my diet or exercise, he never judged me. He is always kind and helps you problem solve without judgement. I loved his 6 month program so much and have learned so much that I am continuing health coaching once a month!"

    “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.”

    “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."
