Steps to Getting Started

  • Contact Debbie at 836-660-8588 or Debbie@Phyto-Fit.life

  • Set-up an appointment to discuss health conditions and goals. This session is usually 2-3 hours.

  • Establish a coaching plan that is right for you.

  • Get started on your life-changing journey.

Why should I consider a lifestyle and health coach?

  • Have you tried making changes in the past, only to fall back on old habits?
  • Have you experienced an event or illness that threatens your life?
  • Do you want to regain the quality-of-life lost from chronic disease?
  • Do you want to prevent a disease that runs in your family?
  • Do you need to lose weight…and keep it off for good?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, a coaching relationship is right for you. Your commitment to yourself and your coach increases your potential for completing your goal and reaching your health expectations. Sharing your goal(s) with your professional coach is different than sharing with family or friends. Through your coaching relationship, your probability of completing such a goal(s) increases by over 70%.

The coaching model facilitates growth and behavioral change as clients attain their goals of health and wellbeing.

Personal Training

Physical activity provides significant mental and physical health benefits. Individuals with chronic disease may not have the self-assurance to engage in physical activity.
