A PROVEN PROCESS TO REACH YOUR BEST BODY
There's food advice everywhere but to see positive and sustainable shifts in your mind and body, you have to adjust your whole approach.
The Whole Dancer 7 Step Best Body Process is holistic - it takes into account your needs as a whole person so you see long term change. You'll achieve your body goals not just for dance but for your lifetime.
In our 6 months working together, you'll reach your best body with:
Are any of the following concerns keeping you from applying right now?
"I DON'T HAVE THE TIME"
Dancers are busy! This will be worth your time.
The coaching times available work really well with dancer schedules - lots of night and weekend times available. Creating a more balanced approach to life, food, and your body can help you stress-less. It can free up more time.
"I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS RIGHT FOR ME"
Fill out an application! I'll reach out either way and if you're the right fit, we'll have a chat.
By the end of our chat, you'll know for sure if this is right for you. I've worked with dancers at every level of their training and professional careers. Whether you're a trainee or principal, you can benefit from this work.
"I DON'T HAVE THE MONEY"
This coaching program can allow you to up-level your dance training and career.
You put so much money into the actual dance training. Investing in reaching your body goals is going to give you the confidence to achieve greater success on your dance journey.
"I CAN'T STICK TO ANY DIETS I TRY."
Good news. This IS NOT a diet.
Through our work together you'll find an eating plan that's easy to stick to. You'll love the food you're eating so you don't feel deprived (which often leads to over eating). I'll share lots of sample recipes so you won't lose inspiration.
"CAN'T I JUST FIGURE OUT THE BODY STUFF ON MY OWN"
Maybe. That process can take a very long time.
Since I've figured out a shortcut for dancer's to get to a place of peace with food and body I want to share it! You don't have to struggle alone. Let me guide you to your goals.
"I CAN DO THIS LATER"
There's a lot of benefit to doing this now.
This is an investment in your dancing success. Just like you've invested in your dance training, investing in coaching will help you take empowered steps forward. You'll get further in your career AND be happier doing it if you put positive focus on your body + mind NOW.
You know you're ready to feel confident in your body 100% of the time.
But you still have some lingering questions...
What if my body can't reach the dance "ideal" I'm striving towards?
Are there foods I should never eat?
Which foods are best before rehearsals or after late night shows?
Is it possible to reach body goals in time for auditions?
How can I change my body without under eating?
Should I cross train 6 days a week to see the tone + lean lines I desire?
Is there a diet or specific food plan I should follow?
WE'LL COVER ALL OF THAT INSIDE OF ELITE BEST BODY COACHING
" Before I started working with Jess, I struggled with anxiety and my insecurities were hindering my ability to perform at my best. I knew I needed extra support if I wanted to succeed and have a career in dance. Jess gave me the tools to approach things differently and manage my mindset so that I could reach my highest potential. I really attribute her ongoing support and encouragement to helping me achieve my dream of an apprenticeship with the Pacific Northwest Ballet.
Malena Ani, Pacific Northwest Ballet
" I felt a lot of pressure to get back to 100% after I broke my foot, especially with audition season looming. I felt behind. Jess helped me organize my thoughts and my company list. Although the audition season was cut short due to the coronavirus crisis, I felt very prepared and confident to go in and get a contract.
Ellie Abbick, Louisville Ballet
"Before working with Jess, I struggled with properly fueling myself as a dancer. I learn so much from each session with her. Dancers need to understand how to fuel themselves properly and how to have a positive mindset around food - I'd definitely recommend working with Jess. My body confidence is better! Working with Jess helps me see that great dancers need to be strong in order to perform our best.
Lena Grace, Ballet Theatre of Maryland
"Working with Jess has been astoundingly transformative in so many ways. As a former professional ballet dancer who has gone through the same struggles many of us face, she comes from an incredibly relatable place to approach clients with understanding, empathy, and validity.
Jess is exceptionally skilled at what she does, and one of the most incredible aspects is that she helps lead you to discover that balance is possible on your own. She fosters your relationships with food and your body in a way that is unique to the individual. There is no one size fits all method, and she tailors one on one coaching to your needs and concerns.
Anna Moeller, Butler University Dance Major
When can I get started?
Schedule a complimentary coaching call. Then, I'll send through a more detailed application. On the call we'll connect and make sure we're a good fit. Then you can get started right away!
How can I measure progress?
We'll track your progress based on how you're feeling in dance - in body and mind. Weigh in's aren't productive so you'll learn to remove the attachment to knowing your weight or measurements.
What's the investment?
Once you've applied, I'll share all the pricing details. I offer flexible payment plans to accommodate various needs and budgets. Look at this an investment in your dancing future.
What's your dietary philosophy?
Dancers need to consider the quality of their fuel. You also need to satisfy your desires so you don't feel deprived. I marry those 2 concepts to support you in identifying the best way of eating for you!
Who is this coaching option for?
Elite Best Body Coaching was created for aspiring professional (age 15+) and professional dancers. I also work with adult dancers and retired dancers who want to find peace with food and optimize performance.
What sort of a time commitment is required?
In addition to our weekly 30-minute calls, your weekly action steps will be woven into your daily schedule. Part of our work will be making sure you know when you'll work on each food or lifestyle shift.
Do you provide specific meal plans?
I provide sample meal plans full of recipes so you'll have plenty of easy options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. I don't make specific calorie or macronutrient recommendations. If you decide you want specifics after we start working together, I'll refer you to my trusted dance dietitian referral partner!
Does this really work?
YES! When you apply The Whole Dancer 7 Step Best Body Process, your personal best dancers' body will reveal itself-with ease...I've seen this process work again and again. I'll support you to make sure it works for you too.
