THP 008: How To Become An Effective Health coach 

Happiness can essentially be boiled down to three key things; Something to do, Someone to love, & Something to look forward to - Dr Gordon Livingston

Chris Kelly is the Co-Founder of Nourish Balance Thrive (nbt), a functional medicine practice that specializes in helping athletes optimize their health and performance.

In this conversation, we discuss how Chris went from being a wreck to thriving as a pro mountain bike rider and then how he transitioned from computer scientist to health coach within a two years.
