 RP Coach, Jen Case: Goal Setting for Maintenance

Mar 15, 2021

About me - Living in Kansas City, KS with Coach Dr. Derek Wilcox and my pets-4 dogs (2 pitbull mixes, 1 Lhasa Apso mix, 1 Pekingese), 2 cats (both orange, 1 long hair, 1 short hair), 2 hedgehogs. My hobbies include Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Stained Glass and Torch Working, and Disc Golf. 

Why did you start coaching?  Cofounders Nick and Mike needed help with a postpartum client 

What is your coaching style? I'm pretty relaxed about things and try to keep my clients focused on the big picture whenever they start getting overwhelmed with the details. Most of the time I focus on the positives and progress made. Try to only be negative or deliver some tough love when it is really needed!

What kinds of clients do you work with? Individuals with special conditions (hypothyroidism, breastfeeding, diabetes, PCOS, etc) who need help with their diet.

What is your favorite part of coaching? When clients send me pics of their pets or children being adorable!

What type of client would be the best fit to work with you? Clients who are willing to roll up their sleeves and put in the work with my guidance along the way.
