Colleen O'Neill Mulvihill
I grew up in a family of firefighters. Being the only girl among my family’s many generations of boys, my path to the fire service had a few extra speed bumps. At age 16, I was about 98 pounds soaking wet. Learning how to become not only fit- but fire-department fit- was the greatest challenge of my life at that time. I knew in my heart I wanted it, but my body wasn’t ready. From that moment on, my journey to learn all I could about fitness, health and wellness took root.
My journey kicked into high gear with the realization that we, as a nation, could eradicate so much disease if we just taught people how to eat the right way and how best to move their bodies. This, coupled with the fact that firefighters and first responders across the country are still dying in record numbers from sudden cardiac events, and now in overwhelming numbers from cancer, prompted me to take action and share my knowledge. Fast forward to now, and I am a certified Health Coach, Holistic Nutritionist, freelance travel writer, along with being a 27 year veteran in a career fire department.
My coaching is based in habit change. Let's face it, we all know most of the 'what to do,' we just don't always do it. Without a proper system to help establish new healthy habits, most people fall back into their old ways of doing life. I help you to become all that you desire, with a series of small steps. Total transformation is possible, and I believe everyone deserves to meet the best version of themselves!
