    "I love working with Emily! She has helped me create reliable habits around food and exercise that I can depend on. The outcome of that is my relationship with food has improved, and my consistency is the best it's been in my adult (post-college athlete) life. My focus now is much more about how I feel, and what I can do to improve, and not entirely on how much I weigh. We focus on lifelong sustainable changes, which was a game changer for me coming out of our very 'all-or-nothing' culture around diet and exercise."

    “Emily Chaston, health coach; sounds like a super hero name. Truthfully, she is a super hero. I began working with Emily September 2021, at my heaviest weight and lowest point of motivation to get healthy. Emily has been there for me every week; without judgment, only encouragement and support. Since working with Emily I have become more consistent in my exercise goals, and have learned to make the healthier eating choices. Emily helps me identify not only my ultimate goal, but what incremental goals I can make along the way that will help me achieve the ultimate. I have lost 30lbs since September and overall am feeling healthier on a daily basis. I am so grateful for Emily and her coaching! “

    "Emily helped me understand small ways I could make healthy changes. She inspired me to take more of an interest in healthy eating and exercise. I always feel inspired and motivated when I finish my sessions with her. She knows a lot about healthy living and always answers my questions."
