Transformational Nutrition Health Coach
Hey there, my name is Andrew Raymond and I am a transformational nutrition health coach. I can say that now, but I haven’t always been a health coach. My background is actually in accounting. I have a masters degree in accounting and have worked in the field for several years. And like many of you reading this, I was working in the corporate 9 to 5 life, and had struggles with my health. I mean, what’s a guy gonna do when there are donuts and bagels brought into the office every other day. Well I eventually found myself constantly feeling groggy, tired, bloated all the time, and my stress levels were out of control. Oh, and the constantly rising number on the scale was not helping either. It was not only affecting my behavior and mood at work, but also how I was at home. Then one day I made the conscious choice to do something about it.
Like almost everyone else, I began by going to “Dr. Google”. Unlike everyone else though, I found myself really trying to understand the science behind losing fat and building muscle instead of finding a quick fix (this should have been my first sign of my future as a health coach). This quickly led me to find many different health experts, which comes with many differing opinions to sort through. And then I started listening to podcast and reading book after book around the subject any free minute I had which just added to the chaos. I eventually took all that information in and started applying as much as I could to my life at one time. I was seeing results, but was quickly overwhelmed by wanting to try everything, and sometimes I just wouldn’t do anything because there were so many things that I felt I should be doing. After years of trial and error and experimenting with different workout routines, diets, and supplements, I was eventually able to start sorting out the noise and found what worked for me. And during this process I found myself sharing all of this information I was learning with my friends and family. I felt I had a responsibility to share the information, as well as a true desire to help the people around me.
I then went back to “Dr. Google” and began researching different ways I could take everything I have learned and help as many people as I can. When I found out about health coaching, it just made perfect sense. I can take everything I have learned about health and fitness, and help others weed through all of the information out there and guide them to their goals. So now I am currently enrolled at The Institute of Transformational Nutrition to be a Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach (ongoing). This way, I can continue to grow my knowledge and have the credentials to back it up. I want my clients to be confident that I truly care about their health and want to do everything I can to help them reach their goals. I have become very passionate about learning as much as I can and sharing as much information to as many people as I can.
So now, I want to take everything I have learned, and help you! I will apply what I know, to take you from wherever you are right now, and provide valuable information and support to help guide you to where you want to be. I firmly believe that you already have everything you need inside of you to create the life you want to live, and I’m here to help you access that.
When you finally take the leap and decide to work with me, you should know that my style of coaching is unique in that I practice a method of coaching called Transformational Nutrition, which redefines nutrition as “anything that feeds you – physically, mentally, and spiritually.” It’s the only coaching method that focuses on all three areas of healthy living which allows you to transform your health and your life at the same time.
Please take a look at the various coaching programs I offer and then you can book your free discovery session so we can get to know each other, discuss your goals, and work together to decide on the best coaching program for you. I look forward to working with you and being there for you on during this exciting time in your life.
Wishing you health,
