Thank you for sharing your success story!

Coach Marisa has made a huge impact on my ability to make some much-needed changes in my life.  Before working with Marisa, I was stuck in some old patterns that weren’t working for me and that were causing quite a lot of stress in my life.  Marisa really LISTENED to me!  She really BELIEVED in me!  She had concrete suggestions that I could put to use right away.  With her guidance and support, I built up a lot of courage to make some difficult changes.  Marisa is one of the most positive people I know.  She always builds you up and never judges.  Her extraordinary enthusiasm makes her so much fun to be with!  After working with Marisa, I have more strength and self-assurance than I’ve ever had.     -Katie P.

Upon entering a second marriage at the age of 37, I found myself in a new role as step-mother to a 10 year old girl. The change from single woman living alone in the heart of the city, to step-mom in the suburbs was dramatic. Through it all, Marisa’s counsel has been invaluable. Marisa understands people and the psychology of relationships.   This understanding gives her insight. From this insight comes creative solutions to difficult problems. In my case, we brainstormed ways to deal with difficult step-family issues, particularly problems related to my step daughter’s health.  


Marisa’s background as a teacher was really helpful here specifically, her knowledge of the stages of growth and development in children and teenagers.  Working with Marisa lifts my spirits and makes me feel empowered to achieve my goals. I wholeheartedly recommend Marisa as a coach, whether you’re trying to achieve a goal or just see a different side of a stuck situation.    -Peteria C.R.

Just spending an hour with you talking over a cup of coffee I could tell that your genuine approach was completely different from other coaches I have talked with. They are all knowledgeable people but just having a catchy phrase or saying things like “you need to manage your stress” or “place boundaries around your time” really wasn’t helpful because they didn’t have the practical tools to help me know what that looked like. You did and I am so grateful for that hour spent over coffee. Thank you!    -Jim H.

It is with great pleasure that I write this on behalf of Marisa Reyes. I met Marisa at a networking meeting about 18 months ago. After having a cup of coffee with her and learning about her business and feeling first hand her zest and love for what she does, I was hooked. I signed up for her program and am I glad I did. I was starting to lose faith and hope that I was at the point of no return. My challenges began to effect many areas of my life, including my job and my relationships. I was beginning to lose self confidence in myself and my abilities. I was becoming less social and more withdrawn from day to day activities that in the past I took for granted.


Well, Marisa immediately helped me to look at things differently, to believe in myself, to not listen to what others said or did. She has so much energy and also such a big heart I found it infectious!!! She began to educate me on the food I ate, helped me plan and get organized, made me accountable for my actions and most of all was with me every step of the way. We met every week and I started to feel good again both physically and emotionally. I looked forward to our weekly meeting for many reasons, but mostly to absorb all the positive energy that comes from spending time with Marisa. She also provided me with many good sources of information and inspirational messages! I watched many videos and presentations and I learned a ton. My whole experience was a very positive one and I would not hesitate to recommend her and the services she provides! She is a wonderful COACH and very good at what she does.    -Steven P.

I highly recommend Coach Marisa as she is very knowledgeable and shares information in a way that is easy to understand and implement into your life.  I began working with her in early 2013.  It was a great journey and she guided me with professionalism and taught me about a healthy lifestyle.  She made me feel comfortable and I knew I could be honest with her as she was non-judgmental and truly cared about me and my success.  I am thankful everyday for what I have learned from her; I hear her in my ear on a daily basis helping me make better choices and continuing down this road.


I have great respect for the passion she shows and how she genuinely cares about each and every one of her clients.  Coach Marisa is the best thing that has happened to me in regards to my struggles.  She has changed my life for the better and I will always be grateful and extremely thankful for her.  - Bonnie K.

This program has been a great success!  Decisions that used to be hard just make more sense now.  I like the increased energy, the consistency, the results.  I can feel the difference in all aspects of my life and I'm excited to keep on this path.  -Matt S.

I used to be an overweight and out-of-shape person with low self-esteem. After I turned 21, I was not happy with how I looked, but more importantly I was not happy with how I felt. I wanted to make a change.  I knew I could not make a permanent change by myself because I have tried before and I have always retreated back to my old ways. I chose to work with Marisa because I believed she was the missing component for why I did not achieve my goals in the past. When reflecting back on my journey, I was immensely happy that I chose Marisa as a coach because she is motivating, approachable, and optimistic.


First, Marisa is a motivator, but also holds me accountable for my decisions. Specifically, Marisa helped me set my personal goals and not only constantly checked on the progression of achievement to those goals, but gave me advice on how to obtain my long-term and short-term goals.  She is a main contributor to my current success of feeling great about myself and my body.


Second, Marisa is an approachable individual. I never felt as though I could not ask questions or that she would judge me for the decisions I made (good or bad). I really valued this quality Marisa radiates and it was the major factor for why I wanted to continue coaching after my initial 12 weeks ended.


Third, Marisa is very optimistic about my short-term and long-term goals which allows me to believe in myself. For example, she was always excited about my progress.  Most importantly, she always told me how my attitude was improving and how proud she was of me, which validated my decision to join the program.


One of my favorite quotes is, “In the midst of our lives we must find the magic that makes our souls soar.” Throughout my transition of lifestyle, I became very comfortable in my own skin and I owe that partially to Marisa who was an amazing coach. Specifically, she allowed me to see amazing qualities in myself that I was blind to because of my lack of self-confidence. Now that I am comfortable in my own skin, I am one step closer to achieving the magic of becoming a Physician’s Assistant, which will make my soul soar. - Abbie M.

I started with my coach, Marisa Reyes, because I wanted to make healthier choices and have more energy.  At the same time, my husband was re-diagnosed with cancer.  I wanted to change our family’s lifestyle to improve our overall health in a sustainable way.  I was living a fast-paced life in the restaurant industry. 

My weekly meetings with Marisa were very helpful and kept me on track with the program.  It’s great to have someone hold you accountable!  This program has opened up my eyes to how why my energy level was so low.  Now I have an energized effort into each day!  I can accomplish more now because I don’t need naps!  I have learned more about healthy living and can educate others, too.  I feel like I’ve come so far – we used to eat bread and potatoes at every meal.  Now I focus on low glycemic foods, especially vegetables. 

I feel great about my results!  This is the best I’ve felt in a long time!  I am proud that I followed through and found better balance in my life.  Thank you to my coach, Marisa!    -Rosey B.

I highly recommend Marisa Reyes, my health coach and mentor. The overwhelming challenges of achieving and maintaining health in my own life have been a source of frustration and defeat for more than 20 years as I have tried dozens of programs, diets and systems only to feel more hopeless in the end. It wasn’t until I started working with Marisa that things finally started to improve for me. Not only did Marisa address the root issues of my poor health, but she also taught me to how to live free of addiction to food and the bad habits I had to cover up pain in my life. I am so grateful for the life changing journey I have experienced since meeting and working with Marisa. She is highly skilled, knowledgeable, professional and honest; and has taught me how to think in a completely different and healthy way about fueling my body for life. She has given me HOPE again that I can and will achieve my health goals. I have worked with several other professionals in the field and I can honestly say Marisa is the best; she is one of a kind, truly and genuinely interested in the success and health of others. The practical and powerful tools she has given me have equipped me to live a healthy life permanently.  I am strong and healthy now because of the investment Marisa Reyes made into my life. Not only that, she has made a positive and lasting impacting on my husband and teenage son as well, teaching us how to make good choices for our health.

Words cannot adequately express the appreciation and gratitude we have for Marisa as our coach and mentor. We have and will continue to confidently referred to her to EVERYONE we know because she is the real deal, helping people make practical and permanent improvements in their life and health. She is authentic and generous and does whatever is needed to help her clients succeed.        -Tracy P.

I chose to work with Marisa because of her positive attitude, confident outlook and her willingness to accommodate my needs.  It was so great to work with someone that not only believes in what she does but lives it as well. She has an excellent program that provides results and much of it is because she believes in the program, herself and her clients.

While I was extremely happy with the initial results, I continued to work with Marisa. I greatly appreciated her commitment to work with me on bettering all components of my life. To this day I continue to work toward goals I have set for myself, avoid bad habits and track the positive moments of every day.  I have seen positive results in my entire family thanks to implementing healthy choices I learned while working with her.    -Shana S.

Coach Marisa is a GREAT coach.  She helped me with figuring our my goals and why I wanted a healthier lifestyle.  I'm 34 years old, a mother of a 16 year old boy, newly married, work full time and volunteer as an assistant boy scout leader for my son's troop.  I have lots of stuff on my plate.  I was shocked to see how effectively the program worked and how Marisa did a GREAT job coaching me.  She helped me get on track to becoming a healthier person all the way around.  By the end of my 12 week journey, I had achieved my goals and was feeling great at the same time.  I could not have done this without Coach Marisa.  Thank you Marisa for helping me become a healthier and amazing person!   -Vanessa F.

I signed up to work with Marisa Reyes for guidance sessions.    We talked about my goal and discussed a plan for achieving the goal.     The first step was assessing my habits.   From this, Marisa was able to help educate me on what changes I needed to make and how to make better decisions.  I am applying all the things Marisa taught me.  I refer to her materials on a regular basis.   And I achieved my goal!  

Marisa listens and addresses all your questions.   She is patient, knowledgeable and informative.   She always followed through on her actions from a meeting and would address any questions. Finally, her guidance helped me achieve my goal.   -Al F.

Thank you again, Marisa, for your enthusiastic coaching and ultimate support.  You made the transition remarkably fun and easy.  -Phyllis A.
