"Whether it is through coaching calls, live, or recorded classes, her inspiring energy will help you to put in the work you’ve always wanted to, but thought you never had time for!" — Erin G.

"Melyssa’s energy is infectious!"

Finally, you will need to apply the knowledge you are learning about lifestyle changes AND about yourself along the way! This is where we help you brainstorm ways that you can begin implementing these changes and trying new things to find what works best for you!


It's not enough for me to tell you this's gotta mean something to YOU! Through prompts to allow yourself "check-ins" and opportunities to reflect on how the information you are learning relates to your healthy lifestyle journey!


I prefer to think of my style of sharing knowledge as "edutaining" - educating AND entertaining! Throughout the book you will learn important information to help you create positive changes with your mindset, lifestyle, and behavior.


This is how we do it!

Coaching Cheat Sheet: Your quick guide for a goal reset!

free download!

Hey y'all! My name is Melyssa with a WHY, lifestyle medicine coach with over 15 years of experience with behavior modification. I wrote my book, Healthy Living Doesn’t Have to SUCK, to teach people how to develop health promoting habits in a sustainable, enjoyable way!
After years of my own personal experience with yo-yo dieting and fitness fads, I finally discovered the power of engaging in health and wellness coaching as a way to overcome all of the other typical, short-lived programs. As a lifelong science geek, the method to my madness incorporates a multidisciplinary, evidence-based approach stemming from lifestyle medicine, positive psychology, and acceptance and commitment coaching.

So if you're looking for a coach that is classy, sassy, and a bit badass-y... Then you're in the right place!
