Jessica was a personal trainer for seven years. Today, she’s a time-pressed professional in a corporate office and the mother of three kids. “I’ve always had a background in wellness and health, but when you go into the corporate world, you don’t take care of yourself quite as well as when you’re in a gym all day,” Jessica says. “I wasn’t implementing those things the way I should.”

Before joining Arivale, Jessica’s stress peaked as her self-care slumped. She knew life could be better, even as she made strong contributions to her workplace. Jessica says, “I have an incredibly busy schedule, but you can be busy and still be joyful.”

What made a difference? A coach of her own. Jessica’s Arivale Coach, Stasi, helped in three key ways: New ideas, new goals, and accountability. “Sometimes I don’t think outside the box on ways I could take care of myself,” Jessica says. During their phone calls, Stasi listened intuitively and asked attentive questions: Are you eating the right foods? Fitting in workouts? And “Are there areas where I can help you?”

Jessica appreciates the accountability that comes with a personal coach. “I know I’m the type of person, where, if I don’t have somebody to check in with, I’ll put things by the wayside. She has been perfect.”

Staci aligns her advice to Jessica’s unique wellness indicators. “I love how she presents all the insight into my genetics and the areas of my health,” Jessica says. “She knows the ins and outs of everything she’s presenting to me, almost as much as if I were to see a doctor.”

Stasi helped Jessica navigate the course of her day, cope with stress, and give herself permission to pause. Jessica set a work-day goal: “Step out of your office for ten minutes. Go see this beautiful campus. Take a minute to decompress. Just be.” Jessica’s husband says he can see the difference in her stress level. Looking back on all the small steps toward better wellness, Jessica says, “I didn’t realize how important they were.”

A breath of fresh air and practical ways to change. “I needed Arivale to fit it in,” Jessica says. “I was at a point in my life where I didn’t know how to balance. Arivale helped show me how.”

Jessica’s Arivale experience has redefined how she wants to live. Her coach keeps Jessica on guard against her old, damaging habits: “Working straight through eight hours, never taking a moment, eating at my desk—I don’t want to go back to that again.” And now? “For me, it’s developing a new brain wavelength. The old Jessica’s gone. This is the new. This is how I’m going to roll.”

“The energy Jessica brings to our calls has exponentially grown. In committing to her self-care, she has been able to give more to the special people in her life, and in turn is energized by exercise, sleep, and hydration.”– Coach Stasi K., MS, RDN, CSSD, CD, CSCS, CE
