"I am a coach who needed a coach myself to help me change my life"


Melissa's story

Watch Melissa's transformation

“My sister had a lot of success with Body Smart so I realised it was not my genetics after all and I could lose weight too.” 🙂

“Being a coach myself I stalked Body Smart on Instagram for a year before I realised it was OK to admit I needed a coach to help me.”

Melissa was paired with coach Brooke @theBrookeDiaz who said, “Being a teacher, a mom of four, and a coach herself Melissa is a busy woman! But she doesn’t use that as an excuse. Her consistency is incredible and her commitment to her journey is inspiring. No matter the challenge she sees it as an opportunity to learn!”

Melissa said, “Before Body Smart I had just given up. I was starving myself. There were days when I’d see how few calories I could eat. Then when the scale didn’t change, I would give in and swing the other way. I was constantly ashamed of myself.”

“I felt like a hypocrite whenever I talked to my students and my own kids about healthy lifestyles and being comfortable with their bodies.”

Coaching proved to be just what Melissa needed, saying, “Body Smart is a journey and a process, not a final destination. It can be so hard, but it is also so beautiful.”

“My masters thesis was on growth mindset, and I felt like I was an expert, so I didn’t need a coach. As it turns out, a coach is exactly what I need. Brooke has helped me reframe and redirect in ways I never realized I could. My anxiety and depression has alleviated too.”

When asked what advice Melissa would give herself looking back or anyone reading this considering 1:1 coaching with Body Smart, she said, “Jump in with both feet and just start. You’ll regret not starting yesterday; so don’t wait until tomorrow!”
