Viva 10 – a 10 week holistic group coaching program that will help you live a healthy, balanced life with purpose and joy – the Viva Lifestyle!

Imagine how good it would feel to:

  • Improve your eating habits, feel lighter and comfortable in your body
  • Experience deeper and more restful sleep
  • Increase endurance, build a stronger, toned and fit body
  • Feel focus and calmer throughout the day
  • Have the energy, vibrancy, and passion to embrace your life, the people and the things you love

During the program you gradually implement simple and positive changes that bring you closer to your goals. Each session builds on the last one and everything you learn during the program will become the base of your unique “Viva Lifestyle Plan”, the blueprint of your new sustainable lifestyle. The program is led by Claudia Serrano, a certified Health and Wellness Coach. She guides and supports you week after week to create and practice lifestyle choices that will improve your health and quality of life. Claudia’s personal ongoing commitment supports your health and wellness every step of the way. One of the best parts of this group coaching program is the opportunity to share with others in a safe and confidential way and develop deeper connections, making your sessions more meaningful. Knowing you are not alone in your journey will help you develop the confidence and motivation to address your challenges and succeed. Give yourself the time to stop and reflect on where you are in your health and wellness journey and where you want to be. Viva Lifestyle can help you get there.

Viva Testimonials:

“Carving out time for your own health and well-being is tough. There is no quick fix. But Brandi and the VIVA program have given me the tools and the support to figure out a path that will work for me even when life gets busy.”

“The Viva Program provides the right integrated mix of activities and tools — information on a broad range of factors that influence my health and well-being, combined with specific, personalized suggestions and ideas to overcome my personal challenges. Brandi’s approach is positive, optimistic and yet realistic.The group is critical to my success, as having other OAC members engaged in the same experience gives me a sense of momentum and support.”

“I joined the Viva program not really knowing what to expect.  I knew I needed and wanted to change a few things in my life and I thought this might be the perfect fit.  I knew what I needed to do, but I didn’t know how to start. With all of the tools and Viva Diva support, I have achieved and over exceeded my goals.  I am strong, healthy and energetic.  I have accomplished a complete lifestyle change and I have a whole new outlook on life.“

Meet Claudia, Your Health And Wellness Coach

Hola, I’m Claudia Serrano, an engineer, a wife and a mom of three. I’m also a certified Health and Wellness 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 and Wellness 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.

What you can do to adopt a healthier lifestyle? I invite you to meet me for a complementary consultation to answer your questions and discuss how I can best support you. Please email me at claudia@ottawaathleticclub.com. Helping people to achieve a healthy, balanced life with purpose and joy is truly my passion. Let me help you to live the Viva Lifestyle!
