I recently finished 5 coaching sessions with Alexandra and it was amazing! She has an incredible ability to listen and I felt really heard and acknowledged. During our sessions, we found out some things that were blocking me mentally from losing weight. And she was able to give me tips on how to adjust my habits to make better choices.
We also did an exercise to discover some mental commitments which I found to be really helpful. It really shined a light on what I wanted and what I was committed to were not exactly the same thing. By acknowledging what is really going on with you, it's easier to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Alexandra also helped break my belief of eating fat makes you fat. And eating good fats actually helps you stay full longer and helps you lose weight. Who knew? All in all, I would recommend Alexandra as a health coach any day. She is just amazing and by tweaking your life just a little and making a better choices while still enjoying meals and regular activity, you're most likely going to keep the weight off.

Alexandra is an extraordinary coach. From the first session you realize her awesome commitment to you and health, wellness and fitness goals. At times I felt she was as committed and sometimes more committed than I was. Alexandra also has an amazing way of not pressuring and yet getting the results. She puts in the work. Time and time again on our calls Alexandra would tell me something she thought of or research she had done through out the week to prepare from last call to this one. She has the ability to take complex goals and reduce them into clear, concise and doable steps. She then inspires you to take the necessary steps to achieve that goal. Most of all I think what makes Alexandra so special is her authenticity. She has over 30 years of really walking the talk. She has accomplished some extraordinary fitness goals and is a living manifestation of health and wellness. I know that it wasn't always that way for her. Alexandr overcame some difficult challenges to be the example she is today. So when she sets out a strategy you know it is coming from someone who has lived her advice. And if you're dealing with challenges to get started, she has also been there and overcome them. I can't think of a better gift one could give themselves.
Alexandra is a master at assessing a situation and dividing it into achievable steps that inspire further actions. Her guidance allowed me to discover solutions myself, own them and find the passion to get things done. The results have led me toward greater possibilities.

Alexandra Paul has the gift of mentoring and supporting folks with great ease. She has a lifetime of knowledge on health and fitness that makes her one of the best coaches in the biz. I worked with her recently and she was able to make a major difference in my life. I urge you to take the time to gain her wisdom.
Alexandra has helped me with a lot of things, one in particular has been improving my sleep habits. I used to never get enough sleep, with poor discipline around going to bed early, and then would struggle with feeling tired the next day during work. I now sleep at least 7 hours a night and feel so much better. She helped me get clear about why good rest is important to me, helped me develop strategies to go to bed earlier and deal with my resistance, and helped me put structure into place to achieve it.
Alexandra is an excellent coach. She listens well, cares, is understanding, asks great questions to get you thinking and moving forward, and helps you break down goals into small, doable steps.
Alexandra provides me with support and accountability towards making small, positive changes, and she helps me to handle things better. She has improved my life, and that's priceless.

I don't think I've really expressed to you how much of an impact you had on my health/life/etc when I spoke to you last summer about joining a gym. Your perspective was so helpful - you just asked a really simple question about working out with my friends at the gym (basically it was "would you go to the club because your friends are there?" answer: yes!) Something clicked and I've been steadily exercising both there and elsewhere for over a year now: swimming, boxing, hiking, running, spinning and weight lifting! Are you some kind of fitness angel? I feel so much better. I still have a ways to go, but it seems possible. Slow and steady...
Now, if you can find me a good man, I'll know you're not mortal!
Thank you again…

I worked with Alexandra to focus on health, wellness and fitness. She's incredibly supportive and empathetic, identifying beliefs creating obstacles and clear, achievable beliefs and solutions to help overcome those challenges. I looked forward to her wit, warmth and commitment to my goals every week. She brings no preconceived regimen, but listens and collaborates on a path of small goals leading to large goals. She's a joy to work with and I can't recommend her highly enough.

Alexandra is a true health coach, and for the past year she’s been like a big sister to me. She has helped me eat right and set me on the right path. She makes me happy because she listens and understands. She has given me great tips like writing down what I eat and to always take my time. We talk a lot about what foods I like that are healthy and she has recommended documentaries that also inspire me to eat better. She’s an amazing beautiful patient human being.
Alexandra turned my overwhelm into manageable step by step weekly tasks with just enough encouragement to help me roll along smoothly towards the goals we built. I jumped from being in a funk to clearing the way for a more fulfilling life.

On May 28th, 2015, I had a heart attack. It wasn't bad luck. It was the culmination of years of bad habits. The first few weeks I was euphoric and felt committed to change. Then 3 weeks later, I woke up with a familiar feeling of depression. I remember thinking, Oh no, I'm back again to my normal self. But good luck did come my way: I started working with Alexandra. From the first session she helped me set attainable goals, inspired me to put in the hard work to achieve them and always allowed me the space to be kind to myself. Alexandra has a rare gift to listen with her heart and share knowledge through a bright and kind mind. She is caring and empathic in the most natural and authentic way. Most importantly, she realizes that while a ‘drill sergeant' might work in the short term, it’s only through self love that we can hope to make sustainable changes.
Bad habits are the result of self destructive emotions. It stands to reason that good habits come from place of love. I learned through weekly sessions that my greatest challenge is not what I eat or how much I exercise. That might work for a while. It’s how I manifest the person I am. Alexandra didn’t just help me change myself, she helped me love myself more.

I can't say enough about the tender and loving approach Alexandra used to get me on track with my wellness. It is nothing like therapy - she truly is a coach who listens and motivates you to hit your goals. So patient and inspiring - my diet has improved and I started exercising again. I feel so much better about my health and myself!

Wonderful, empowering coach! I have been able to maintain a schedule since coaching with Alexandra by writing lists so I don't get overwhelmed, which was a problem, and doing a lot of self talk because I was very negative. This has helped me tremendously. I have also been able to maintain a healthy diet by substituting good foods and don't even crave sugar any more. I can't keep up with group exercises at a gym so I walk with a 2 mile video every day. Alexandra meets you where you are at and is so positive it's catchy! I can't say enough good things. Alexandra is not just a coach she is a friend! Always positive and so KIND.
