Selina Uglow, LPN, CPT has come from 248 pounds to successfully maintaining a healthier lifestyle without drastic changes, sacrificing, and crazy exercises. Through her coaching services, she not only shows people how to do the same, she becomes their biggest cheerleader with daily support, weekly exercise, and sharing of various resources in nutrition, cooking, finance, attitude & positive perception, social services, etc so that individuals can succeed in moving towards optimal wellness.
Individuals who are seeking change don’t often follow through because of the various factors that come into play including family, expectations, support, etc. Working with a wellness coach helps adjust attitudes, change commitments and keep people motivated to adopt healthier habits in their real life situation.
