Hey, I'm Haeley Mariah!
YOUR NEXT HOLISTIC HEALTH COACH
To be completely honest and raw, writing an “about me” in one paragraph is harder than I thought. Especially for someone who used to struggle with self-love, depression, lack of self-control, and overall mental strength. We are both stepping outside of our comfort zone here but that is where growth happens. If there are one or two things that I want you to take away the most from my website, it is that you are stronger than you think and you deserve to be truly happy - no matter what anyone else thinks. The fact that we are meeting here on my site shows that you are brave and that deep down there is a part of you that knows there is more to you than the current version of yourself.
It's Story Time!
Back in 2007, my eldest brother passed away from suicide and it completely shifted my world. Slowly, I started to spiral into my Mental Well and I didn't know how to get out. Since the age of 6, I have been a competitive level athlete, so physical activity has always been a huge part of my life. The one thing (and arguably the most important thing) that I was missing from my life was mental strength.
Tearing my ACL back in 2016 was my turning point. I knew if I wanted to recover and get back to my physical self, I would be forced to experience stillness to strengthen my mind. During this time I struggled with identity issues, severe depression, lack of hope, and lack of confidence. I put myself through my own Personal Growth Program which was life-changing. It gave me the mindset shift that was necessary to get myself out of my Mental Well and onto a direction/path of my choice.
From loss & injuries
to Evolving & Thriving
Throughout my recovery, I started posting my journey on Instagram as a public journal, sharing my highs and lows. When people started reaching out thanking me for being real and courageous for sharing motivational words and free workouts, I knew that this was my calling. Never again did I want anyone else to feel the way that I felt; I knew I wanted to help people. I had to learn quickly that hitting rock bottom is a part of life and instead of trying to prevent my clients from reaching the bottom, I had to be honest and real and guide them through their personal journey.
I founded The Mental & Physical Coaching Experience to recreate that sense of hope and self-belief in everyone that I work with through my various services and programs. I designed a workout method that strengthens both the mind and the body. Through this, I learned to value the alignment of the mind, body, soul, spirit, and growth. I learned to value the importance of THE PROCESS and understanding the experience through the process is what creates mental and physical strength.
If there is one thing that I could tell my younger self when I was at rock bottom is that “my strength is within, it always has been there you just need to believe”. I decided to devote my life to support, encourage, motivate and guide my clients out of their Mental Well and on their journey to becoming the best and most successful version of themselves.
