Viva Testimonials

” The Viva Program gave me more knowledge about food, meditation and how to organize my meals, my week and myself!”

“I finished the program more than six months ago and was just looking at my binder tonight–i am sitting in front of a fire at our cottage–and was re-inspired. I have to admit I sometimes fall off course…but I keep trying. The binder and tips are amazing and I will use it forever!‎ Thank you for this”

“I have been on VIVA program for over 6 months. Claudia has coached me to eat right, while paying attention to my cravings. She has given very practical tools to move more and eat clean during this program. She had exercise suggestions integrated as a part of your day that are all wonderful life tools to keep you healthy and active. I went through one-on-one coaching to address my eating habits and also was a part of the cleanse program recently. Both are immensely helpful to create healthy habits that you can keep for your life. I have more energy and I am overall more active. I have to say that is the best investment I’ve made for myself.  I know I will never go back to what I used to be 6 months ago. Her recipes are tasty and healthy too.”

MEET CLAUDIA, YOUR HEALTH COACH

Hola, I’m Claudia Serrano, an engineer, a wife and a mom of three. I’m also a certified Health Coach and am delighted and honoured to join the OAC team with Viva, an exclusive healthy living and weight management program.

My health journey began after I became a mom, when I was so devoted to my kids that I forgot about me. I was tired, out of shape, moody and not eating well. I was drained. I wasn’t giving myself the care I deserved. But I was determined to find balance again, both for myself and my family. With the help of a Health Coach, I incorporated changes that brought positive results. Because dancing is in my blood and something I love, I became a Zumba instructor. I noticed that my participants were not only having fun but also feeling better, having more energy and enjoying their bodies.

I fully committed myself to wellness and became a Health Coach supporting and empowering others to make healthier choices for themselves and their families. I believe that all the areas in our lives are interconnected and unique to each of us. When these areas are in balance, you feel more nourished, fulfilled, organized and purposeful. Is my health perfect as a result? No way, it’s a work in progress for everyone. Every day there’s something new to learn and to do, but every step I take brings me closer to my goal.
