Dear Colleagues,

        The purpose of this course is to motivate your clients to start, continue, and maintain their diet and/or fitness program. As a motivational coach, I have assisted people with diet, fitness and health for over two decades. I don't give you a specific diet or exercise program to follow. There are plenty of those already out there, and they're not working because people just don't stick with them!  Instead, I will solve the problem which millions of people face, which is failing to stick with it.  Motivation is the key factor in the success of any change program.  I give you the best research results and proven strategies that will assist you in motivating your clients to stick with (and achieve) their diet and exercise goals.
        The workbook pages will assist them with the support they need. PLUS, a guided meditation that will propel them beyond belief! So let's get started. Today!

What Others are Saying About this Course:

        I read this book and liked it so much I bought the audio version to listen to on my iPod while I exercise! This is the best information about what really motivates people to stick with their diet and exercise that I've found, and trust me, I've been working on this for years. I've tried everything, and she is right, it's not about the program or the pill, it's about you and what really motivates you. I'm sick and tired of the yo-yo syndrome. I got a few tips and strategies that have made all the difference for me, and now it seems easy. Since I first started reading the book 3 months ago, I have been sticking with my program!

        Dr. Lyn Kelley really knows what she's talking about! I've known her for over 10 years and I can tell you she practices what she preaches. I'm amazed (as are all her friends, colleagues and family) at her dedication and commitment to her own diet and exercise program. She exercises almost every day and is always planning her next healthy meal. Where does her motivation come from? You'll find out in this book! I've tried many of her ideas and they really do work. Before I read this book I was 20 lbs heavier than I am now. This is a MUST read for anyone who has had difficulty sticking with their diet or exercise program!
