About this pro

How does your service stand out?

Here is a little about me: 1) I’m empathetic, especially when it comes to having a weight loss goal. In college, I weighed almost 50 pounds more than I do today! 2) I’m honest. 3) I have a strong work ethic. 4) I will go above and beyond to answer all of your wellness questions to the best of my ability. 5) When you hire me to work with you, I’m also available through text, email, and social media. 6) I’ll get back with you right away if you leave me a message. 7) I’m an active listener. 8) I truly care about each of my clients. 9) I’m passionate about what I do. 10) I’m flexible in terms of where we conduct sessions. Phone, Skype, your home (East Bay), or other local areas such as Whole Foods.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Witnessing the transformations in each of my clients. When they begin feeling better on all levels, they share their information with others. This creates a ripple effect. I'm always proud to be part of that process.

    Jamie answered my many questions and provided some great insight into why I am recently craving chocolate and grains. She provided a good sample menu to help me lose weight and ideas (beyond exercise) for how I can increase my metabolism. Everything explained concisely and with great professionalism. She does NOT sell products, which I appreciate. Just the coaching, information and encouragement I need. I'm looking forward to our next meeting.

    Besides being a wonderful, warm, positive and caring person, Jamie really knows her stuff. I met with her twice and we devised a plan to help me eat better and to help with my gluten sensitivity. I learned so much information from her and my body feels so much better. She still keeps in touch with me even though my sessions have ended. I highly recommend you get in touch with Jamie. She will change your life.

    Jamie is truly passionate about helping people who need guidance in health and fitness. She is very inspirational, spiritual, and a positive thinker. She has a special way to make you feel great about yourself. Working with her closely for two years was a pleasure especially when you see her on a daily basis with her big, beautiful smile. I always relied on her expertise for health and fitness.

    What inspires me most about Jamie is not only is she knowledgeable, but that she walks her talk. She does her own healing work. Healing herself first, she knows firsthand what it is like and so she is more available, present and able to meet the needs of others; her clients. She’s compassionate, kind-hearted and nonjudgmental. Wendy Goldstein, CMT, CCHT, CRTC

    I am so thankful to know Jamie Duvnjak. Her passion for life, motivation for wellness, and all-around fun personality is what draws people to her. Her love for our universe, holistic wellness, enthusiasm for living, and desire to help others cannot be matched. I have found through the years that her drive for everything that she does is contagious. From her warm smile, her infectious laughter, and her willingness to be genuine and positive, I have been motivated to mirror the same qualities and makes me ask, "Life has to have MORE people around like this, right?" When talking about her passion regarding wellness, she is very knowledgeable. However, her knowledge exceeds just talk. She believes in and DOES the things she says. She is both insightful and inspiring, real and honest, encouraging and motivating. I truly enjoy hearing about the things she is doing and the lives she is reaching in the wellness world. There are so many people that could benefit from her expertise, awareness, and drive. I am thankful for her friendship and the beautiful soul that she has become.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Education: Certified health coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in NY; Bachelor’s degree in communications with a minor in journalism from Oakland University. Experience: I have been passionate about health and wellness since I began working in gyms during high school. I was a wellness attendant and kickboxing instructor at a Michigan YMCA during college. Prior to moving to CA, I was taking community health education master's courses. A job transfer brought my husband and I out here, so I had to seek courses elsewhere. Becoming a certified health coach through IIN was a great educational move. I learned over 100 different diet theories and gain valuable knowledge to help clients transform their entire lives! I am blessed and honored to do what I love and be able to share my passion with others! Outside of my health coaching business, I enjoy spending quality time with loved ones, hiking, travel, strength training, cooking nutritious meals and practicing yoga.
