Neuro-Movement Coaching, Cooking Made Fun
Forest was born in Yosemite National Park. His grandfather was the park’s first Chief Ranger and his father was born and raised in Yosemite. As part of a National Park Service family, Forest had the privilege of growing up in such amazing places as Yosemite,
Hawaii National Park, Oregon, Washington, D.C., New York City, Mt. Rainier National Park and Yellowstone National Park.
In high school, Forest’s passion turned to education and after receiving a BS in Elementary Education from the University of Northern Colorado, he spent 10 years as an Elementary School teacher in Denver, CO, specializing in gifted and talented programs.
In 1983, Forest left teaching to pursue a career in sales and marketing. After building a successful mortgage brokerage business, he realized his passion to make a difference in the lives of people was not being fulfilled. During that time Cheryl had been building her business, Lifestyle for Health. The business was growing, and lives were being touched and impacted across the country and it was soon apparent that the business needed the full attention of both Forest and Cheryl working as a team. Closing his mortgage business, Forest directed his full time efforts to supporting the growth of Lifestyle for Health and ultimately the opening of the Lifestyle for Health Wellness Clinic in Denver.
Initially starting as a small clinic to help people learn how to eat healthier diets, cook healthy food that tasted great, and customize their nutritional supplement protocols, Lifestyle for Health ultimately grew into a million dollar/year business with clients from around the world. In addition to a full client load, Cheryl was in national demand as a speaker, media expert and writer on creating healthy lifestyles, leaving Forest to run the daily operations of the business.
In 2004, Forest and Cheryl closed the clinic and took a year sabbatical to have time to refocus on their own health and to have more family time.
That led to 8 years of consulting and executive coaching in the natural foods industry while Forest focused on marketing breakthrough nutritional product technologies. Cheryl and Forest are now pursuing their passion of impacting people’s lives by creating environments (communities) where people learn to grow, prosper and enjoy healthy lives. They are now taking the years of clinical experience, combined with their coaching and consulting skills and making that wisdom and experience available to many more people, at affordable prices, through their on-line training and one-on-one coaching programs.
They both invite you to experience Lifestyle for Health — our community, our teaching and our life changing wellness products.
