I first started working out with Traci over 10 years ago for the initial purpose of doing rehab after knee surgery and cardiovascular to strengthen my heart.
What began as simply physical therapy and strength conditioning workouts, has morphed into a regular life coaching session, each and every week, covering all aspects of mind, body and spirit
In over 500 weekly sessions, Traci has never administered the same workout twice, nor has she failed to have prepared for each session, some unique guidance and direction, in the areas of nutrition, mental development or spiritual fulfillment.
I have also had the opportunity to work with Traci in other areas. She is as comfortable presenting to Boards of Directors as she is leading a workout class. Her ability to read audiences and tailor her offerings to specific individual requirements is fascinating.
Traci has built quite a following in Northeast Ohio and I am sure she will take her game to the National level once her busy schedule permits.
I started a Wellness Coaching Program with Traci Fisher in early February 2018. Together, we worked out a realistic plan for me. I was honest about my food and exercise likes and dislikes.
In these past four and a half months, I have lost 28 pounds - almost to my goal of 30! I am eating plenty of healthy, tasty food, drinking lots of water and using the treadmill for a mile most days. This has all become part of my life - now and for the future. I am more energetic and happier with myself.
I have tried lots of programs over many years. I believe I have been successful this time, because the program is specific to me, sensible in it’ approach and includes the element of accountability. Traci coaches me remotely everyday, and we meet and tweak my program every other week.
I am extremely pleased!

"We have an innate wisdom about our own health and happiness. There is a science to creating Wellness and Wellbeing. When we create them simultaneously, there is nothing more powerful."
Your immediate goal is important. And, more importantly, your goals are the way for you to practice personal evolution. When you practice self-awareness, you become a better leader. That evolution transcends your goals and brings meaningful fulfillment to your life.
This isn't about no pain, no gain. When we are consciously changing ourselves, it takes work. It is supposed to be hard. That is the currency of transformation. When you work hard and learn how to be uncomfortable, that is the gain. Being comfortable with discomfort elevates self-leadership and leadership into another hemisphere.
