Hi! I am Tami! Welcome to My Health Coach CHICAGO! Your new HOME! I am a fitness professional who moonlights as a rapper on the weekends. I like to tell people that because the surprise on their face is FUN to me. I love inspiring and motivating people to be the best versions of themselves. I have always lead an active lifestyle, grew up playing sports, ate a balanced diet, and was always on the continuous search for what the next "thing" was going to be in my life.
I am choosing to share my own personal story with people and have created this portal as a means to help EDUCATE people and teach them how to be an ADVOCATE for themselves when it comes to personal health and happiness. My journey lead me to MANY answers and confirmed my beliefs about living disease free, getting healthy, maintaining health, using food as medicine and how we have control over our lives.
In 2015, my sister and I were both diagnosed with breast cancer. Cancer put the brakes on my whole life and shoved me into an upward spiral to educate myself on natural health. I learned about the MANY things that have likely contributed to the growth of cancer in my body. The list is overwhelming... from foods to products to people to environments to behaviors to thoughts and emotions and stress. I have tackled every item on my list and my journey is still continuous. Food and Fitness were the easiest for me personally, but the rest seemed to be pretty challenging. I lead a great life but woke up every morning with a nagging & anxious feeling that I needed to do more, be more, and achieve more. I was causing a stress filled life for no reason. It took me a while to understand and implement all aspects that contribute to our state of health. But I did it and now I want to share because I know it can help people lead their happiest and healthiest life.
Since September 2015 I have been researching, studying, and personally testing all these mind-body-soul aspects and approaches to enhancing your health positively. I coached myself through my self-healing cancer journey. I understand the benefits and road blocks to achieving complete health. During this process, I gained a few health coach certifications and started to formulate my own coaching style and programs that I feel will benefit and easily teach people about health. I am continuously learning the ways to complete happiness and health. My mission is to help others in the process so we can all learn and grow together to lead extraordinary lives while we are still here on earth. I have made tremendous strides and believe I can help. I have done the research and tested this on myself so my goal is to give people the tools and education that are easy to understand, easy to implement, and have fun along the way!
