I worked in the corporate environment for thirteen years in multiple operations roles and as a Corporate Training Lead for the third largest clinical research organization in the world. I helped create SOPs, trained staff on technologies and processes and gave new employees a four-week crash course in the industry. When I had gone as high as I wanted to go, I left the company to start my business. There wasn’t anyone coaching people on how health affects productivity and how productivity affects health while giving them actionable steps with their inbox, nutrition, and opportunities to move.

To be successful takes more than theory. Some say staying fit and productive requires self-discipline, commitment or willpower.

I disagree.

It requires knowledge, support, and genuine behavior change.

Meet Marcey

Street, Trail, and Water Cred

As a road warrior for a decade, I made all the mistakes. Then I got it together to get more fit and healthy as I learned how to organize my time. However, I’m no Superwoman. I triggered an autoimmune disease with my high-intensity, high-stress, high-travel lifestyle. Now I evaluate everything I do with a holistic approach and consider the long-term risks and benefits to my health, happiness, soul, and business.

Triathlons(including two Ironmans)
6-30hr Adventure Races(including two National Championships)
Endurance and Ultra Trail Running Races
Endurance and Ultra Mountain Bike Races

I qualified for the Boston Marathon and hiked the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim to Rim.

I did all of this while mastering my schedule, task list, shutting down at night with inbox zero and going on a date with my husband every week.
