Life Coaching with Kristy Mox

This is my life’s purpose and I am on a mission to help others reach higher ground.

~Kristy Mox

So you want to change your life, but where do you begin? How do you pick a Life Coach? There are a million self-proclaimed “Life Coaches” crawling out of the woodwork these days, but I’m not here to talk about them. The pond I swim in is still rather small, but I’ve got real estate here, I am confident this is my life’s purpose and I am on a mission to help others reach higher ground.

Even more odd to me than all the life coaches out there are the life coaching courses and certifications becoming available. When I embarked upon my journey to become a coach, certifications were slim to none. There was only one coach I wanted to learn from, and that is Tony Robbins. While he doesn’t refer to himself as a “Life Coach” and he seems to be venturing down a different path these days, there is no doubt he is a master at this craft.

I knew that the first time I saw him speak and that is precisely where I went for my certification. Technically speaking I am a certified Strategic Interventionist, among a number of other certifications. Pretty fitting start since I later went on to become a Certified (Substance Abuse) Peer Support Specialist. 

I will share with you how and why I became a life coach.

I can’t speak for the masses, only for myself—of my own education and experience. For me, the calling began when I was 12. I’m not the biggest fan of reading as I have ADHD and dyslexia, but I was compelled to purchase a book on Codependency with my very own, hard-earned money. The bookstore was brand new to my local mall and “codependency” was a relatively new phrase back then. I was certainly onto something, but I had a lot more pain and adversity in the form of raging codependency to experience, walk through, and conquer.

I’ve always had jobs working with people who bared their souls to me. As a hairstylist, aesthetician, make-up artist, personal trainer, nutrition coach, wellness coach, and life coach. Throughout the years I had been a confidant to all my clients. It has been an honor to listen to stories some have never shared with anyone before me. I am in awe of the courage it takes to share such things and I will take those stories to the grave!

I was done listening without helping on a deeper level.

The day I decided to begin studying life coaching, I was working as a personal trainer. I had been working with a client whose story was so moving, I couldn’t listen anymore without helping on a deeper level. I just could not bring myself to count another rep without doing something to help the person get unstuck. The issue presented were out of my scope of practice, so I decided to expand my scope of practice! I hugged this person, provided a referral, went home, and registered for my coaching certification. At the time I was going through a divorce—I was newly sober, painfully exhausted, and completely broke. I was determined though! I invested every cent I had, and every ounce of energy, and focus I could muster whilst raising 2 kids solo and rebuilding my life.

It’s amazing how much more energy and motivation have when we are deeply passionate about something and in alignment with what we are being called to do.

Today I am blessed to be able to share my knowledge, wisdom, experience, strength, and hope to help others reach higher ground. Few things bring me more joy than helping others find their way. For me, coaching is not about helping the masses. Coaching is about helping one person at a time. We all deserve someone to lift us up and give us their undivided attention.

Letting Go

We cannot move onto greater things when we continue to hold on to what no longer serves us.

People, possessions, behaviors, beliefs, attachments, ideas… All the things that once served an important purpose in our lives become the very things that hold us back when we refuse to let them go.

There cannot be a new beginning without an end. When we let go completely, we open ourselves up to infinite possibilities.

Fitness Coaching

Let’s be honest here… being ripped is kind of badass, it feels amazing, and it is a massive boost to one’s confidence. I know, I’ve been slightly ripped before.

However, it is a lifestyle that not everyone participates in so unless you surround yourself with like-minded humans leading parallel lifestyles, your newfound badassness will likely fall by the wayside. Not everyone can stick to their guns for the sake of their guns and unless you are genetically blessed, you need to completely change your life in order to sustain a ripped physique.

 

First and foremost it is imperative to clarify the following; “Fit” is not an adjective—”Fit” is a verb

How you look is not an indication of how fit you are and how “fit” you are is pretty subjective.

It’s highly unlikely that a 300lb Strongman would be able to run a 5-minute mile, nor will a 160lb Ironman be able to pull a 900lb deadlift. Both of said athletes eat in very different ways—neither of which are conducive to weight-loss or translate as “healthy” for most normal(ish) folk. They eat to fuel their bodies in order to perform better at very specific sports. blur bicycle speed bicyclist

If your life looks more like desk surfing, baby (or fur-baby) chasing, and domestic duties, you likely don’t have a need to train or eat the way most athletes do.

What most people need is much more simple (not to be confused with easy) and way less sexy than what we are accustomed to seeing on YouTube, TV, blog posts, Facebook, Instagram, and a million other force-fed advertisements. When you shift your focus from flashy, badass and “sexy” to health, wellness, self-preservation, and balance, you arrive at something way more sustainable and realistic. Self-preservation is a different kind of badass—it’s less about aesthetics and ego and more about being humble, happy and healthy.
