Certified Health Coach & Fitness Trainer
"Your health is my business!"
Hi! I'm Kristen Lovell and I have been working in the health and wellness industry for over 10 years. My approach to wellness incorporates addressing issues of the mind, body and spirit. I believe that nutrition, exercise and spiritual wellness are all crucial to living a full, happy life. I am certified as a health coach through Dr. Sears Wellness Institute as well as a group and personal fitness trainer through the Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA).
As a mother of 5, I want to impart the importance of making healthy choices onto the next generation. As a child, like many of you, I grew up in a family where almost all of our food came out of a box or a can. Hostess and Kraft products lined our shelves. Thankfully, after I graduated and enlisted in the Air Force, I started learning about physical fitness, and later, nutrition. After becoming a mom, I knew I had to learn more about how to keep my family well and started researching how food affects our health. It lead me on a journey to A Merry Heart Health Coaching where I now incorporate many facets of health in my training.
I have worked as a group fitness instructor for a local woman only outdoor fit camp, have trained clients one on one and have coached people on how to implement simple changes that have a lasting impact on their health. I am grateful to be able to pursue my passion for total health through fitness, food and faith as a health & fitness coach and Juice Plus+/Tower Garden representative. I see Dr. Sear's Health Coaching courses as the perfect vehicle to reach others and help them along their health journey.
“Today, more than 95% of all chronic disease is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies and lack of physical exercise.” ~Mike Adams
