I decided to contact Martin Becker after some of my friends heard him speak at a local organization. I had been struggling with some issues that were bothering me and I felt the need to see a professional. I contacted Martin, and after only a few consultations in my home, I felt so much better. He has a wonderfully calm way about him. He is very attentive and has given me excellent advice. He made suggestions for daily practices that have been very useful to me. He is always available for talking on the phone if needed.
He also helped me with my weight issues, and actually met me at the grocery store for an “Eat this, not that” food shopping coaching session. I highly recommend Martin Becker for Health & Wellness coaching on whatever concerns you have to help you to live life to its fullest.
Martin Becker was my Health and Wellness Coach for three months while I dealt with issues related to my medical health and to a significant life transition. What made Martin effective was the combination of his knowledge of medical/health and wellness issues and the high level of compassion and affirmation he provides. He moves easily and naturally between the knowledge/informational level and the emotional/psychological level —both of which are involved in any important change process. He is very thorough in determining one’s goals for change, and then each week he systematically addresses what is needed to progress toward those set goals, while also providing the client with a strong sense of being understood, affirmed, and supported. I strongly recommend him to anyone who is dealing with any type of Health and Wellness issue.

Martin was an effective Health and Wellness coach because he could seamlessly understand my metabolic issues and existing treatment regimen; he could land running and support what I had started. My time with Martin was important because it was about the only time during the week that I could reflect and focus on myself. He helped me clarify personal goals integrating my work and my life. Martin takes the strategic view that this is not about dieting; rather a lifestyle change with a laser focus on ingredient intake, exercise, and mindfulness. Martin’s style is direct, expressive, warm and non-judgmental. He is an exceptional listener and understands the nature of individual change and transition…and the creative forms of resistance we all exhibit. Martin’s effectiveness is also ground in goal setting; he held me accountable and it felt like he was always at stake for my success. Martin is very knowledgeable on books and studies that validate diet and exercise routines that I read and followed. The feedback I am getting from family, friends, and colleagues…not to mention my tailor… whom all notice and support my weight loss is the kind of reinforcement that makes it all worthwhile. Martin is part of my transformation. Martin is an effective health and wellness coach because he helped me define my’ best possible self’ and the ‘best possible life’ I can have.

My standards for a health and wellness coach are very high, given my Ph.D. in molecular biology. Martin Becker has met those standards and then some. He has an impressive command of human biology, chemistry, and anatomy, along with nutritional health and wellness, and an ability to translate his deep knowledge into practical advice for improvement. In addition, Martin’s vast knowledge of information sources, ranging from nutrition experts to online exercise sites, was especially helpful. I feel better, have more energy, and am keeping my weight under control. Martin has earned my highest recommendation.
