We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach.

If you need help transitioning from calorie counting to intuitive eating, we can help you build the right habits.

If calorie counting is right for you, just send us a pic and we'll automatically log calories for you.

If numbers stress you, we can inform you of calories only when you are going off track.

Personalized workouts at gym & home

Ever gone to the gym regularly and been frustrated by your slow or negelible progress?

We can write workouts that will have you making good progress. Bonus: we can write you workouts that need zero gym equipment. Save all those gym $$!

Personalized workouts at gym & home

Personalized meal plans

In the beginning, it can be hard to figure out what to eat such that you meet your goals and love every meal.

If you need substitutes for cravings, we can give you ideas on what replacements to stock up on.

If you need ideas for what types of food to eat at every meal, we can share a meal plan template to make eating healthy easier.

If you need specific recipes and grocery list, we can do that too!

Minute-to-minute help & accountability

At a restaurant and don't know what to get? Overwhelmed by cravings for ice cream and pizza?

No matter what surprises life throws at you, we're here to help you workaround them and stay on-track.

We Believe

there is no one way to get fit habits > quick results no one else should go through the unnecessary trial and error with unsustainable approaches we went through finding your sustainable approach shouldn’t be a massive time and/or money sink mindset coaching and emotional empathy are as important to the process as the ‘what’ to do

How it all began

Lucy could have been a professional yo-yo dieter. Unhappy with the way she looked and the number on the scale, she tried every diet and succeeded only in losing and regaining the same 20lbs over and over.

Richa was textbook skinny-fat and didn’t like the way she felt. In place of the scale, her arch-nemesis was her own body, which rebelled against bad nutrition and activity habits with digestive issues, cramps, and sleeplessness.

None of us liked how our clothes fit, how running across 5 airport gates to catch a flight winded us, and how the numbers on our yearly physicals were trending in the wrong direction.

Our struggles

Lucy followed the simplest and loudest advice out there. Eat less and run! She did that, got results, and then results stalled. So, she ate even less and ran even more. This only left her tired and hangry but didn’t relieve her body’s stonewalling.

Weight loss was not Richa’s primary goal. She wanted to feel like a functioning human being, but her body’s message was clear “I am not happy”. She went to doctors to figure out what was wrong but on paper, nothing seemed wrong.

In frustration, both of us turned to the internet, and were welcomed by saintly, quick-fix promises and a trash dump of hellish, conflicting advice.

Are carbs good or bad?

Cardio or weights?

Why does it seem like every food is going to kill me?

So, we decided to try everything.

Juice fast diet

CICO

Keto

Elliptical

Dance fitness

More running

We’d give up. We felt like losers with no willpower.

Hitting rock bottom

One day, Lucy reached her goal weight, looked at herself in the mirror, and still didn’t like how she looked. This made her question everything she had been prioritizing so far. She didn’t want to chase numbers without knowing what they meant. She was tired of being confused and also just plain tired.

One day, after Richa ate a late lunch, she felt unable to breathe properly. She sought out a cardiologist, who adorned her with heart monitors then dismissed her with a clean bill of health. It was the wake-up call she needed.

We realized we wanted education, mindset change, and an understanding of not just the “what” but also the “why” - the science behind our bodies and the forces behind our psychology.

How we changed

Old us New us
Searching for one-stop solutions Searching for education on the processes of nutrition, exercise, and mindset
Wondering why we’re broken compared to our “fit friends” Asking why different bodies in same environments respond differently to stimuli
Asking which diet or workout was the “best” Asking what makes them similar and different, what kinds of people stick to each, and for how long and why?
Basing success on a single number Basing success on habits, trends, and self-awareness

Living a healthy lifestyle is neither a pipe dream nor a punishment. We don’t have to give up our social lives. We don’t have to eat tasteless food. We don’t have to dedicate all our free time to the gym.

Where we are at now

6 months after we started translating science and mindfulness to daily health habits, we achieved our goals finally. 3 years later, we are still learning and improving ourselves daily. This time around because we want to, not because we feel like we have to.

While our primary goal at the start was to look and feel good, it’s what our bodies can do now that thrills us.

If you ask Lucy, she’ll tell you how she loves that she can farmer walk 2 grocery bags in each hand for a mile without breaking a sweat.

If you ask Richa, she’ll tell you how running up Denny Way hill in Seattle is the proudest moment of her daily commute.

We want to do more, see more, experience more.

Why we started Coach Viva

It is a liberating feeling when you love the food you eat, enjoy physical activity, and have pumped up energy daily. Your body empowers you to live an unlimited life.

We look at our family and friends struggling with fitness goals, with the misleading and conflicting information out there, and we see a replay of our prior selves.

Then we look at those who have made it, who have gotten personal trainers or nutritionists to help them cut through the noise, motivate them, and empower them, and we’re reminded of our current selves.

This is great, but few of us can afford to spend 100s of $$ per hour on a coach.

The majority of us are stuck sifting through both oversimplified and overcomplicated information, or straight-up misleading dogma to get to the real, science-backed advice we actually need.

Shouldn’t you have access to information that works for you?

Shouldn’t you get more help in translating knowledge to enjoyable daily habits?

That's why we came together to form Coach Viva

Our mission is to make world-class health coaching affordable for everyone.

We are your instantly available advisor and partner-in-crime. We don’t direct you; we collaborate with you to understand your history, motivations, lifestyle, and preferences. We work with you to decide on a plan you’ll love. Then we help you translate the plan into actionable steps to take daily.

Our goal is to collaborate with you to discover a routine you enjoy - one that brings real, measurable and lasting positive change to your life.

To accomplish our mission, we are using the perks of technology to be able to scale ourselves to many more clients than is traditional, thus bringing the price of each coach down to affordability.

The technology only augments our abilities – it doesn’t replace us at all. You can rest assured that we are reading each and every message you send us.
