About Kim Lachapelle

What separates Kim from the rest as a coach is her ability to create a friendly, super-safe and free-spirited space for her clients. She has first-hand experience that following the “rules” doesn’t always work and delicately challenges her clients as she does herself in internal cultivation, outer expression, and physical well-being.

A Day in the Life

“It’s so much more rewarding than I ever thought possible.”

Watch as we are guided through the core tenets of THE MAX Challenge by trailblazing franchisee and owner of the FIRST Connecticut-based MAX Challenge transformation center, Kim Lachapelle! Everyone from members, to staff, to government change-makers weigh in on the ENORMOUS impact that THE MAX Challenge has on wellness and community.

Life Coaching

Life Coaching is a technology of personal and professional development based on concepts from sports, business, spirituality, psychology and organizational development. A Certified Professional Life Coach helps you set larger, more rewarding goals, develop a strategy to achieve them, and provide support throughout the process.

Kim Lachapelle is an amazing leader and coach. She identified the root of negative thought processes and perceptions that were blocking my energy and preventing me from taking my leadership to the next level. After working closely with Kim for three months, my ability to effectively lead my team has increased exponentially. I always believed I was a good leader, but now I see myself as a great leader and I am still utilizing the tools I gained in our sessions toward the goal of becoming an exceptional leader. Very reasonable cost for totally spectacular results! Very Highly Recommended!!!

Kim Lachapelle is incredibly gifted in coaching successful leaders. She has the education, experience and energy needed to develop a leader. As my coach, Kim was able to provide valuable insight into my strengths and weaknesses, and how to improve upon these in my specific role as Production Manager at InCord.
From my experiences with Kim, it is evident that she has an attention to detail, is organized and always prepared, has a positive attitude and energy, and is comfortable in working with personnel at all levels of a company. I highly recommend Kim.

Are You Fully Expressing Your Truth?

Are you up-leveling your life in a healthy way?

Sometimes our motives for wanting to do better and improve ourselves may not be pure or authentic which can then lead to less than positive outcomes.

A few years back I began asking myself how much of my desire for self-improvement — to up-level in both my career and in my personal life was truly about being my best, and how much of it was based in needing to prove something.

Being A Life Coach Helped Kim Lachapelle In Her Own Life
