About this pro
10 years in business
Lynn worked with me for three plus months last year.I was in a very overwhelming and stressful spot. Lynn had the ability to teach me stress relieving techniques to get through my every day feelings of stress. She taught me to take care of myself and to say "no" which has always been so hard for me. I now feel in control which in turn brings me peace. Lynn is the best and I have never felt more comfortable talking with someone before. Your life will be better if you hire Lynn.May 17, 2016
Lynn Ross was amazing at helping me to recover from being sick that caused me a lot of anxiety. Her Coaching helped not only with my anxiety, but really helped me take a fresh look at other issues I was dealing with. I had been suffering with multiple ailments. I have learned so much from her and will continue to use all the tools she has shared with me. Feeling so much stronger and confident. The coaching has made me understand so much more about myself. She is a wonderful Coach and makes me feel so safe and secure. Diana ArndtMay 12, 2016
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I normally work with my clients by phone. We spend the first session creating a wellness vision for your life. We set three month goals and weekly goals. There is power in writing down your goals, in ways that are specific, achievable and measurable. The secret is to make your goals small and simple enough so that you can begin making progress right away. I work with my clients for a series of 4, 8 or 12 sessions to help them achieve what they want.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a Certified Personal Trainer, A Certified Health and Wellness Coach and a Certified Behavior Change Specialist with The American Council on Exercise and the Wellcoaches School of Coaching. I also hold certifications as a Nutrition and Fitness Instructor, a Diabetes Prevention Instructor, a Lifestyle and Weight Management Consultant, A Matter of Balance instructor. I also have been received certifications from Dr. Robert Holden, as a Happiness Coach and in the Enneagram, personality course.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?My mother passed away from a heart attack at age 62. I had also lost both my grandmothers and grandfathers to heart disease. I began searching how to eat to take care of myself and my family. I studied nutrition which led to fitness and when I found out that 80-90% of diseases such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes are preventable through living a healthy lifestyle, I made it my mission to share that message with other people. Stress is now being recognized at a top cause of chronic illness. I first became a Certified Nutrition and Fitness Instructor and a Certified Personal Trainer to help helping people become fit and healthy. But there was something missing. Client's would ask me why it is so hard to make changes. I had to find out, so I became a Health and Wellness Coach focusing on the psychology behind behavior change. I now hold two certifications in helping people make positive changes, creating healthy habits which translate to a healthy happy lifestyle.
