live your best life

ABOUT

I'm Alison Altmann, a performance life coach whose soulful purpose is helping others live a more joyful life. My objective is to coach others by holding space, so they can see themselves as whole and complete while living their best life. With a background in physical fitness, I bring the element of movement into the coaching arena. I've led boot camps among peers for over 5 years and enjoy incorporating play into each unique workout. It’s rewarding—and fun!—to see a group of people share and encourage each other while working out.  All I do is provide the right environment to allow this to happen. I’m a firm believer that movement helps people to see things with more clarity and focus. Examples of this include taking a walk while coaching, or bringing my brand of coaching into someone’s favorite routine. I understand the importance of coaching (I’ve had a coach myself for 8 years) and how the coaching relationship helps people live a more joyful life.  I’m a true believer that you can’t take someone to their next level unless you have also experienced this feeling yourself. Setting and reaching your dreams and goals becomes attainable as you discover the gems that are already in your life.

Graduating from San Jose State University with a degree in Sociology and studying at the Academy of Coaching Excellence with Maria Namath in Sacramento, has given me the skill set needed to be a successful life coach.  I’m able to see each person as unique, with his or her own personality and gifts. I have worked with a variety of issues that people bump into time and again, time management, relationships, and career choices to name a few. It’s a magical moment when I’m able to help another human being see that they are capable of getting out of their own way to experience their true self, and to feel how powerful they truly are. I simply hold the space and ask the right questions to make claiming your true joy a reality. Being a life coach for over 3 years is the most rewarding job I can imagine.

As a 4th generation Californian raised in the Central Valley, I reside in sunny Santa Cruz with my husband and 2 cats. Santa Cruz is a perfect spot to be outdoors and near the ocean for a coaching session. I meet with clients one on one in my home office, outside, and by phone or Skype. Contact me to set up a session today!

Testimonials

I was introduced to Ali from an old friend some years ago and couldn’t be more happy we met. She’s a great spirit and it’s very obvious she genuinely cares for her clients. My wife & I talk to Ali from a couple counseling perspective...she’s helped us tremendously. We always feel so much better after spending an hour with Ali.
Ali is so wonderful in so many ways! I owe so much of my happiness and current contentment to her. I have struggled with anxiety/depression for years and hit a low a while back. Ali was there every time I needed her, reminding me I was ok, and providing me with comfort time and time again. I don’t live close to her so she offered me phone sessions which was so great and convenient for me. She takes the time to get to know you, and truly cares about helping anyway she can. She was the comfort and peace I needed in the midst of my chaos and am so much stronger now!

I contacted Ali for help as I had become deeply anxious and depressed. My brother referred me to her telling me that she could help me live a more enriched life. We spoke every week for about a year and she pulled me out of my depression. We worked together on ways to help me get out as I was the last single one among all married friends. She taught me to be happy on my own and promised that this was the first step in feeling better about myself and in opening the door to love. I did EVERYTHING she told me to do as well as read all the books she recommended. She saved me and ultimately things fell into place and I found the love of my life and we are now planning our wedding.
I recently started back up with Ali as my father is sick with ALS. She is helping me to cope with the effects this has on me and my family. Ali is a great listener and always has sound advice. I’m so thankful for her as a coach and a loving friend.
