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!
