Hi, I'm Katja!
I'm sooooo happy you're here.
Go ahead and sit back, relax and take a deep breath. Regardless of what's going on in your life, be here in this moment and let my words sink in...Perhaps grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine (okay fine, water works too, I guess) and let's get started. :)
Why did you become a health coach?
I received my Integrative Wellness & Life Coach certification 2 years ago because I made a promise to myself to not settle and to go for things that scared me.
I always loved leading an active lifestyle while growing up. Granted I was tall (I was 5'8 as a freshman in high school, I'm now 5'11) so that got me involved in sports early on. I loved the community aspect of being on a team and of course those endorphins kept me HOOKED.
After sports and into adulthood, things changed. It often does, for a lot of us.
We are told to "grow up". It's time to stop messing around and get a "real job". Work the 9-5, save, get drunk on weekends, find someone & get married, buy a house, have babies, continue working to maybe retire on time, maybe travel at this time & well, you know the end of this story.
This American "dream" sounds anything but. I got the 9-5 (more of an 8 - 8) and as you can imagine, the first thing that fell to the wayside was my health. Workout? Eat healthy? Meditate? Ain't nobody got time for that!
Fast forward 2 years, I went to a Tony Robbins seminar and that experience completely changed my mindset on EVERYTHING. I haven't looked back since and I decided to get my certification 3 years later.
