I've been a fitness/health enthusiast for over 30 years. I ran a successful private personal training & Pilates studio, taught a variety of fitness classes & even competed in two figure competitions in my early 40’s. All the while alcohol was a part of all of that, always waiting in the wings for me, ready to celebrate my achievements & get me right back into the detox-retox cycle.
I thought this was normal drinking, all of my friends & fitness peers seemed to be doing it
too….work hard play hard, that was my motto!
I repeated this weekend binge drinking into my 50’s however the weekends were starting earlier & lasting longer. The rest of the week would be filled with me swearing off alcohol, shaming & promising myself I would not binge drink again! I would try to “sweat it out”, hydrate it out, take supplements to help my liver process the alcohol (a myth by the way..), anything I could think of to detox & desperately undo the damage & havoc I knew alcohol was wreaking on my body. All the while experiencing extreme anxiety & depression because I knew this WAS NOT who I wanted to be This was not How I wanted to live!
It wasn’t until I found Annie Grace’s Book, “This Naked Mind”, that I started to understand what alcohol was truly doing to my body, my brain & my spirit! I was able to experience a powerful mindshift making alcohol small & irrelevant in my life! NOW, I AM A SOBER FIT CHICK & LOVING IT!!!
I would like to help you break the unhealthy detox/retox cycle & help you to achieve a true mindset shift from alcohol so you too can achieve your dreams of living a free & healthy lifestyle!!
There’s quite a long story that led me to a place where I crossed paths with Maureen. That path crossing moment started with my wife talking to a friend who knew Maureen and of her passion as an alcohol coach. She found out about a presentation Maureen was giving on the “30 Day Alcohol Experiment”. We talked and agreed that it might be fun. While sitting and listening to Maureen’s story, I quickly concluded that her story was my story! Not a little. A lot! And almost exactly. I’ve always considered myself to be a good person, father and husband. I work hard, have a successful business and participate in many physical activities and events to include an annual marathon. Work hard, play hard! I’ve earned it. Right?! Not so much. I could feel that this drinking cycle wasn’t working anymore. My story aligned perfectly with Maureen’s story. Within minutes I knew I was signing up for the 30-Day Alcohol Experiment Coaching program!
The coaching sessions with Maureen were amazing. The environment was relaxed, open hearted and judgement free. Maureen's amazing listening skill allowed her to capture the essence of our discussions. She was able to present me with thought provoking questions that really helped me to reflect and look inside myself to reevaluate my beliefs about drinking. She has an amazing ability to capture the highlights of our sessions and present them in summary, which was highly effective in reinforcing new revelations and self-discovery. I thrive on content and Maureen always had the perfect material recommendations at the right time.
I can’t say enough about how much her coaching sessions helped me and I highly recommend her program to anyone!
