Making SaladMy name is Rose Colleran.  I am a fitness enthusiast, wife and mother of two daughters residing in Medfield.  I provide nutrition & fitness coaching for people looking to achieve their optimal healthy state, regardless of their current health and fitness levels. In 2006 my life took an unexpected turn when my sister-in-law called to let me know she could get me a number to run the New York marathon that fall.  This surprising opportunity changed the course of my life.  Since that time, I have run 11 marathons (including New York, 6 in Boston, Chicago, Vermont, Providence and Philadelphia), 3 ultra-marathons and the first inaugural Dopey Challenge.  This journey sparked a desire for optimal health achieved through fitness and nutrition. This experience was so rewarding to me, I wanted to share my passion with others.  In 2010 I became a Health Coach after receiving a nutrition counseling certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN).  In addition, I became a Certified Personal Trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and a Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) certified Run Coach. I also have certifications in Jr. Fit Youth Specialty, TRX®, Real Ryder Indoor Cycling® and CrossFit Level One Trainer (CF-L1). Drawing on what I have learned through these programs, I will help you create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals. My areas of focus and services offered:

Personalized Health Coaching

6-week program focused on nutrition education and strategies for healthy eating

Run Coaching

Individualized training plan based on your current fitness level, experience and goals.

Optimal Health Program

3 step program to cleanse, nurture and revive through clean eating
TESTIMONIALS – Personalized Health Coaching
Rose came into my life just when I needed her!  Like all moms out there, I never made time for myself.  I was making sure the kids and my husband were okay and spent the rest of the time running errands and volunteering. Sound familiar? I could always come up with an excuse not to exercise or a reason to eat that dessert!   I was noticing year after year that my energy levels were down and I never felt good.  I needed Rose to get ME back on track.  She has so much information to share!  She took the time to listen and came up with a plan specific to my needs, and most importantly, one that I could actually follow.  She is very knowledgeable about all things nutrition and exercise.  I loved all her helpful hints and I know she will always be there if I have any questions or just need a little push!  I feel like I am ME again!

As a high school and college athlete who has always been in good shape, I would have never thought at the age of 49, that I would need a “coach” to help me reach my fitness goals. After reading on Healthy Food for Hectic Lives, I realized how wrong I was.  Whenever I work with Rose, she brings the presence of a professional as well as the demeanor of a friend. She really cares for each person she works with on an individual level. When I am talking to her it is like I am the only person she is working with.  Her suggestions, advice and cheerleading have helped me immensely and I am well on my way to losing the weight I need, reaching the fitness level I want and maintaining a healthy lifestyle to be able to enjoy all that the world has to offer.

Working with Rose has been a fantastic experience. She’s got the right mix of understanding the science and the theory behind nutrition and healthy living while also having wonderful practical tools and tips. Rose does a wonderful job of listening and probing to really understand the heart of an issue or the barrier I’m experiencing. Once she’s asked great questions and has a full picture of the issue her advice is always spot on. Rose knows when to nurture me or push me – depending on my mood and what I need at any given time. Over the years, I’ve worked with several people on this or related issues and Rose is by far among the best!

TESTIMONIALS – Individualized Run Coaching
I been a runner for years but have never worked with a coach and was a little hesitant to give it a try. However, having Rose coach me for my first half marathon was a thoroughly positive experience. She was willing to customize a running plan around my work and child care schedule AND make it interesting and challenging every week. Her daily emails detailing the workout for that day and the next, and her constant encouragement gave me the motivation to keep with the plan. Not only did I complete the race, but I met my goal of getting in under 2 hours. I never would have been able to achieve that pace if I hadn’t worked with Rose. I wholeheartedly recommend to her to anyone; from those who want to start a running plan to long time runners looking to improve their time. I can’t wait to plan my next race with her! Debra

Run Coaching Client, December 2011 – March 2012

Never had I thought I would run a 5K race as I thought I wasn’t built for running nor did I ever enjoy it. However I forced myself to face my dislikes or misconceptions and signed up for Rose’s class. Initially it was baby steps, then it was all go and I completed the 5K and am now going to do a 10K (but no more than a 10!) Best thing about this experience is that if I cannot drive to the gym, wait for a class and then drive home again, I can squeeze a run into any time of the day and just put on my sneaks and run out the door: a relatively quick, efficient and quantitative free workout.

I have always been interested in running, but never had success in sticking to a routine.  I would either give up too easily or overdo things and get injured or achy.  Working with Rose gave me the guidance, accountability and safe plan to build up to my first 5k.   I was surprised at how much fun I had in the process.  With Rose’s encouragement, I was able to run my first 10k just one month later!  Thank you, Rose- I am now hooked!

If it hadn’t been for Rose Colleran and her class ‘Run Your First 5K’, I would not be competing in road races today.  I have always been a daily walker, but I was never able to run more than a mile, let alone complete a 5K!  Rose taught me the skills and gave me the confidence to achieve my goal.

TESTIMONIALS – Optimal Health Program
The cleanse really reset me in many ways.  Turns out that I really love eating a veg-heavy diet and that the way I felt eating this way was more exciting than the eight pounds I lost. Jennifer

Optimal Health Participant, Spring 2014

This was a great experience!  It was manageable and not as intense as some other cleanses out there.  It was balanced and it wasn’t too difficult.  It is possible to do and still maintain a busy life! Sandra

Optimal Health Participant, June 2013

It gave me exactly what I was hoping for and what was promised- a way to break away from my old eating patterns, and try a more plant-focused diet, and then with my eyes wide open, reshape some new, healthier eating habits.  Thank you very much for the guidance and encouragement along the way. Emily

Optimal Health Participant, January 2013

I would just like to personally thank you Rose for all your encouragement and great quotes. I am a return cleanser and again have learned new things especially from you and have come away with a renewed desire to make those choices to improve my health . Thank you so much for your guidance!

Optimal Health Participant, January 2014

I can now report that I reached my goal and lost 10 lbs after 9 days of not cheating and staying true to the program. Anything more is just a bonus. Thanks for introducing me to the program. Kathy

Optimal Health Participant, Spring 2013

I want to thank you with all my gratitude for bringing this program to my attention. As a result of the program and the resulting improvement in my eating habits, I have dropped from 167 lbs to 157 lbs and kept the weight off this past five months. My cholesterol improved considerably along with improvements in my energy level. Bob

Optimal Health Participant, May 2012

I did this to prove to myself that I could and also because I like the idea of the “cleanse”.  I thought I would loose some weight, but that was not one of my goals.  I am happy about that, but more importantly, I am more aware of my eating habits today, and the fact that I NEED to plan my snacks, especially in the afternoon. Lisa

Optimal Health Participant, October 2013

I don’t know where to start!  First, I am going to be so sad when I wake up tomorrow and there is no email from you!!  I have loved reading your daily emails and have absolutely LOVED doing the cleanse.  This was my first serious body cleanse, but it sure wont be my last.  I feel GREAT and really a lot more focused on making better choices every day going forward.  Thank you so much for being such an amazing guide through these past 2 weeks!  I hope to do this again with you in the future!
