Greetings! I’m Martin Becker, a Mayo Clinic Certified Wellness Coach and a National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach. I was trained at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. I bring the behavioral science and evidence-based research practices of the Mayo Clinic Wellness Coaching Model to you. The Mayo Clinic Wellness Coaching Model is based on the principles of Positive Psychology to actualize the potential within every person. I view you, the client, as the expert in your own life. I will work with you, as you become your Best Possible Self. Together we will develop behaviors and strategies by using The 7 Dimensions of Well-BeingTM to create the lasting changes you want.
I spent over 40 years as an Executive Coach and Organization Development Management Consultant changing the behavior of Fortune 500 organizations and the executives that lead them. I have worked with thousands of executives from more than one hundred different companies, in 17 countries around the world, to help them resolve critical people issues to improve the performance and productivity of individuals and teams.
Earlier in my career I was a Director and the National HR Advisory Services Practice leader for the accounting firm KPMG, a principle for Gemini Consulting, an Organization Development Manager at the world headquarters of Pfizer, and a Corporate Human Resource Development Executive for Macy’s New York, where one year, I even got to be a clown in the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade!
I was drawn to the field of Health & Wellness Coaching from my own personal health experience, which resulted in my retiring from full time consulting several years ago and beginning my ongoing journey towards health, wellness and longevity. Once I was successful in accomplishing my own health and wellness goals, by establishing and continually maintaining long-term lifestyle behavior changes, I decided that I wanted to help other people do the same thing for themselves. Based on my long experience as an Executive Coach, I pursued formal training as a Health & Wellness Coach with the world famous Mayo Clinic.
Because I want to live a full and happy life, I am dedicated to maintaining my health. It requires me to be personally accountable and totally consistent in my behavior every single day, without exception, to control my destiny. My personal journey over the last several years towards better health and longer life has been one of continuous learning, occasional disappointment, and much accomplishment. I’m now focused on maximizing my health and longevity, being with my family and friends, having fun and sharing what I’ve learned to help those lucky people who really want to dramatically improve their health by permanently changing their lifestyle.
On a personal level, I am married with three adult, married children, two daughters and one son, and one young granddaughter. My wife and I live in Marco Island, Florida, and our oldest daughter, with the granddaughter, lives in the Los Angeles, CA area, the middle daughter lives outside of Boston, MA, and our son lives in the Bay Area of CA, so we do a lot of traveling cross country. My wife and I also enjoy traveling internationally, especially to Asia, where I get to practice my passion for photography.
