We had the good fortune of connecting with Chelsey Hallblade and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Chelsey, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
My business helps women become healthy and confident. When this switch happens, it has a ripple effect on everyone in their life! When you are healthy and confident in yourself, you show up differently. You are a better mom, partner, friend, coworker, employee, just all over human. Becoming confident in your skin can truly be life changing!

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I own an online fitness coaching business. We specialize in helping busy women, especially nurses and moms, drop body fat and build confidence! We provide one on one custom coaching to help women reach their health and fitness goals.

Many things set us apart from others in the industry. One is that we focus very heavily on education. It is our goal that our clients finish up our program with the foundational knowledge necessary to keep their results long term and eventually not need a coach. Our goal is to educate and empower them to become self sufficient. Another way that we are unique is that both myself and my first hired coach, are both registered nurses. So we have a great background in health and we can relate to those who work in healthcare. We understand the stress and the crazy shifts. We have dealt with it firsthand and are able to provide help to those going through it now.

My business was actually started when I was a tired and unhealthy nurse. I was working night shift surviving off of hot Cheetos and diet coke. I started to not feel like myself and knew I needed a change. I dove into my own fitness journey and now I love helping other women to do the same!

My business has grown a lot the past 2 years! Last year, I became maxed out on clients and hired another coach on. This year, we plan to bring on 2 more coaches! I am so excited about our growth! However, it has not been all rainbows and butterflies! Quitting working as a nurse was a very emotional decision for me because I loved that career! Entrepreneurship comes with its own set of battles. It takes a ton of self motivation and self belief! It’s so easy to get in your own head and question what you are doing. But I have a great support system around me that helps me to believe in myself and keep showing up to change more lives!

I am most proud of the lives that have been changed! When a client tells me that I changed their life, there really is nothing better!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would take them on a hike up Camelback mountain or Usery mountain. The desert is beautiful! I would also take them to lots of restaurants because AZ has the best food! For brunch we would go to Hash Kitchen and for dinner and drinks we would hit up the Second Story in Scottsdale!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I am so thankful to my husband for encouraging me to start my own coaching business and pushing me to take the leap and go all in! I am a registered nurse with 8 years experience working in acute care. I had a very stable job that was difficult to leave. If it weren’t for his help and support, I would have never believed in myself enough to take the leap into entrepreneurship and self employment. It has been the best life change and I have him to thank!
