I may dish some tough love some days, but it's straight from the heart. Leaving me totally grateful and plenty humbled, here's what some of my clients had to say:
"I wanted to share with you that I am feeling AWESOME. There is something to [eating more organic and less inflammatory foods]...I haven't felt this good in so long. Best of all - [my husband] is enjoying some of this. He can even taste the difference in a number of things. Thank you....really.....this journey is quite something! I had no idea how much better I would feel based on our initial conversation. I wish I could tell any skeptics (and I was one) how much this has helped me feel fabulous!" -Kim F, Western MA"Thank you thank you thank you! For everything, lady! I have so enjoyed out sessions and have gotten so much out of the discussions. You are a helluva tough coach who sets high expectations, demands accountability and doesn't accept wimpy excuses, but does it all with a huge heart. On top of that, you are smart as a whip, so no getting away with anything there." -Justina G, Owner, Edmonton, BC"I was an un-tethered, unfocused, unguided missile. With big intentions, lofty goals, and a fair bit of knowledge about health, I came to our coaching sessions as a scattered ball of too much! Enter Kara. She came onto the scene with nutritional know-how, enthusiasm and the uncanny ability to troubleshoot my chaos and help me learn tools to approach life from a centered position. Kara is such an adaptable coach, her program is organic and appropriate for the ever changing landscape that is life. I felt I could share anything with her, from trouble getting inspired to eat, to being buried in paperwork and possibility. Kara was the force that got me unstuck. She helped me navigate my obstacles to having a healthy experience through creative recommendations and deep listening. Though our sessions have ended, I feel the impact that Kara made on me will forever reverberate as I continue to live my life. The experience has been invaluable, It has been great having such a trusty, knowledgeable and super fun ally as I walk a path to a more fulfilled, healthy life." -Celeste B, Utah"Kara is a straightforward, no-nonsense goofball – the perfect engaging, authentic balance of tough and fun. There's never a dull moment in her coaching sessions. She'll guide you to discover (not tell you!) what you really want in life and hold you accountable so that you stop making excuses!" -Michelle G., Los Angeles, CA“I cannot praise Kara Martin enough! In the time we have worked together I have experienced a complete transformation in my life personally and physically. Through our coaching sessions, Kara has helped me find the balance and career stability I have been craving and has given me the tools to re-explore my relationship with food. She is incredibly personable, offers helpful suggestions and exercises, and shows a genuine interest in helping me achieve my goals. I feel truly blessed to have the opportunity to work with Kara!” - Cara F, NYC“The Six Month Program was a life changing experience for me! I would recommend it to anyone. I learned so many things. Working with Kara, I learned about new foods, how they work in our bodies and how to listen to my body – something that I never really thought of. Eating out was always a huge challenge for me, but not anymore. Making the changes in my diet and in my life, now I have energy and feel great. I feel better, younger and with energy to spare. And I give thanks every day to God for putting Kara in my path.” - Vicky G, NYCBottom line: Kara inspires me to be a better person. Yes, we talk about eating leafy greens, which essentials oils to use, how to create a relaxing daily routine, the importance of recognizing your personal wants/needs in life, how to elongate your posture, how to strengthen your body without exhausting it -- all the things that make up a healthy, whole-living, breathing person. I learned so much just in my first session! But in the short time I have worked with Kara, I have definitely changed for the better and it was not just because my health has improved or because I am working towards a stronger, more resilient me. It is because of her casual, calm encouragement, her deep knowledge of what makes us all tick, and her blunt, cheerful way of saying it like it is (especially when you don't want to see it). I am inspired by her patience, dedication, motivation, and camaraderie. For the past two years I have gone to countless specialists/doctors, been through tons of tests/scans/bloodwork, been prescribed all kinds of different medications...and no doctor has found out what is wrong with my body or made me feel even the slightest bit better. Kara did, both physically and emotionally, and has supported me more than I could have imagined. She is a rock star and I am so lucky to have stumbled upon her. I owe the "new me" all to her :) - Kara J, Easthampton, MA
