I will help you achieve your health and wellness goals
Do you want to unlock your full potential and feel your best?
Are you tired of short term diets that don’t work?
Do you want to take charge of your health and happiness?
Hi there! My name is Annika Schimmer, I am a certified Holistic Health Coach and a certified Autoimmune Paleo Coach. My passion is to help people unlock their full potential and guide them to achieve their health goals. I have experienced the power that healthy choices have on our well-being by managing my autoimmune disease with food and lifestyle since 2015.
I used to think that changing my diet would take away all happiness in my life and I know from my own experience how hard it is at first. But I am the living proof that it is possible. Through my own journey and struggles, I have learned a lot that I can share with my clients.
WHAT IS A HEALTH COACH?
A Health Coach is a supportive mentor and wellness authority helping clients feel their best through food & lifestyle changes. He or she will tailor an individualized wellness program to meet the specific needs of the clients and help them achieve their health goals. A Health Coach offers support, motivation, information, and accountability.
WHO SHOULD WORK WITH A HEALTH COACH?
Everyone who needs help in achieving their health goals and has trouble implementing lasting lifestyle changes. A lot of people know what they should do differently but somehow cannot make it happen due to feeling overwhelmed and not knowing how and where to start. A Health Coach will help by providing practical tips, guidance, accountability, motivation, and support.
What to expect from my practice
Working with me is not a weight loss program nor a short term diet fix. Although weight loss can be a positive side effect, the goal is to work towards implementing lasting lifestyle changes and eating a healthy and balanced diet.
A balanced and nutrient dense diet is the cornerstone of good health however other aspects such as quality sleep, exercise, relationships, and happiness are as important. We will work together to optimize all areas of your life.
YOU ARE IN CHARGE
I will be there to guide and help you with tips, tricks, and information. However, the focus will be to teach you how to take charge of your own health and give you the tools to tackle issues and stay on track all by yourself in the future.
I work by incorporating healthy foods and habits into your daily life. Instead of focusing on what you cannot do or eat we will focus on adding nutrient-dense foods and positive actions. This will naturally crowd out foods and behaviors that don’t serve you.
Everyone is different and has unique challenges. When working with me one-on-one, your program will be tailored to your specific needs and circumstances. No one's journey is the same and I honor that.
I like to focus on solutions, not problems and work on mindset shifts. Having a positive attitude makes everything in life so much easier. I will be there to motivate you, be your cheerleader and help you tackle challenges in a more positive way.

What my clients are saying
I began my healing journey with Annika when after 2 years, I still had some minor health issues I couldn’t shake. Working closely with her gave me the opportunity to have someone from the outside look closely at my daily dietary habits and give insight on the things I was missing. She stepped in at the right time in my life when I didn’t have a great foundation for wellness and healing myself. In each session Annika patiently listened as we reviewed any areas of my life that might be disruptive to the healing path. Nurturing and completely non-judgmental, I knew I had her in my corner for support. Incredibly approachable and easy to reach, she was there to answer questions, give recipes, or ideas, and help me through any obstacles that came my way. Her encouragement has kept me going through it all. Now looking back on all the progress I have made, I am grateful for all the care and positivity she gave me when I couldn’t find it for myself. My wellness journey and I are incredibly appreciative of her work. Thank you, Annika.
