THE ORIGIN STORY

MEET KIRSTEN

 
 

MOVED COACHING CAME TO BE out of A NEED FOR MORE radical ACCEPTANCE, of our bodies, ambitions, and present situations.

 
 

I began to notice my interest for physical movement while recovering from an eating disorder. strength training provided an outlet for me to move, not just to burn calories but to make myself stronger. Movement empowered me, and lead me to want to help others in the same way.

Since becoming certified as a personal trainer in 2013, i have worked in the industry in many different iterations. however, over time i have come to realize that empowered movement isn’t only physical, but allows for mental, emotional and spiritual connection to self on a deep level.

This realization lead me to pursue my Certification in Life Coaching, so that I am better equipped to ask powerful questions and assist clients toward their unique goals.

My mission with Moved Coaching is to create a community that inspires acceptance of oneself and others, so that we can grow together and move toward goals that feel good. Through mindful movement and thoughtful connection, real change can be made both internally and externally. if this resonates, I look forward to connecting with you and moving forward.
