Christy Holt is a mindset coach specializing in helping overwhelmed women to attain clarity and build unstoppable confidence so that they can create the life of their dreams. She believes in a holistic approach to coaching, so her philosophy emcompasses mind, body, relationship, money (business) and adventure in order to help her clients to experience true and lasting life transformation. Her methodologies center around heart-led, soul aligned living and Christy ALWAYS keeps it full of fun and adventure! Christy is a master at helping women to shift their mindsets so that they can break free of the overwhelm, fear and expectations of others and create the life they truly desire.
Christy began her journey as a teacher, encourager and leader when she started her first business - teaching piano lessons - at age 14 (she still teaches today, nearly 3 decades later!). Christy also has a degree in Business from the University of Alberta as well as a Chartered Professional Accountant certification. Through her time in public accounting she developed a deeper love of teaching, leadership and mentorship which also led to later being involved in the education of up and coming accounting students teaching both through the Chartered Accountants School of Business and at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology.
After leaving public practise and having her 3 beautiful children, Christy pursued her personal passion for fitness and health coaching by obtaining certifications in Personal Training, Resistance Training and Nutrition Coaching, and launching her business as a health coach and group fitness instructor. As Christy continued on her own personal journey, she has continued to grow and expand via special interest learning in the areas of behaviour change, effective communication, neurolinguistic programming, mindset coaching, neuroscience, mindfulness and more. She desires to leave a legacy by helping as many women as possible to overcome their fears and limiting beliefs, uplevel their mindsets and create the business, relationships and adventures of their dreams!
A significant part of Christy’s personal journey includes surviving a high-conflict divorce and co-parenting which led to significant personal growth and mindset shifts in order to create a new life for herself. She is now deliriously happy with her best friend and partner in life, Sean, and the joy-filled life that they have created together. Out of her abundance of love and acceptance she desires to serve others so that they may too experience the love and acceptance, and receive the abundance that they truly deserve.
Christy is mother to 3 boys of her own plus a ‘bonus son’, all teens. Christy’s passion is exploring and hiking in the Rocky Mountains and travelling. When she’s not having fun and being refreshed in the mountains, you’ll find Christy meditating, running, bike riding, walking, teaching fitness, reading, playing volleyball, snowboarding, or sipping a coffee with a friend. She has a passion for adventure, big or small, and believes that clarity and intentionality are key to creating real, lasting results and living your best life possible every single day.
Whether you’re seeking strategies for your coaching or consulting business, your overall health or for increasing connection within your personal relationships, Christy will be there to help you level up and step into your full potential. Her focus is on serving others through proven strategies that transform the mind, body and soul, finding your soul-aligned purpose and manifesting the life of your dreams.
