The difference between try and DO
Helping you bridge the gap between wanting to take care of yourself and actually doing it.
I do this by showing you what to do, how to do it, and - most importantly - how to actually make it stick.
Kelly Bryant is a RYT-200 Yoga Instructor, Pilates & Barre Instructor, and a realist. She completed an alignment-focused vinyasa yoga training at Yogamaya New York in 2015, became a Barre instructor in 2017, and began teaching Pilates in 2019. In addition to her work as a fitness coach, she is also a writer and professional marketer. Prior to quitting her job to travel the world in 2016, she worked at health & fitness startup, Noom, where she led content and community marketing efforts and soaked up everything she could learn about psychology and behavior change.
As a fitness studio manager, new clients came in every day and told me about how badly they needed to get back in shape and how much they wanted to make our classes a habit. Yet, for no reason I could identify, it seemed like half would become complete devotees – working out 5 days per week – and the other half would never walk back through the door.
As an instructor, I would see the same client come in every single week for months or years. She would make huge progress, telling me regularly how much better she felt. And then all of a sudden, for no reason I could see, she would stop showing up. I never knew if it was me – maybe she was no longer getting value from my class? – or something catastrophic in her life, or she just…lost focus and motivation.
After pondering these ideas for months, something clicked for me. I needed to change what I was offering to help my clients create lasting change. We needed to have a dialogue that went beyond “Have you ever taken a yoga class?” and “How are you today?” That’s why I offer workshops and private trainings that help you set goals and understand why you’ve failed in the past. There’s some tough love. A few epiphanies. And yeah, it gets a little “life coachy.”
