Hidden Gems: Meet Isabel Brinkworth-Martinez of Coast To Coast Balance

Today we’d like to introduce you to Isabel Brinkworth-Martinez.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
Sure! I started my business, Coast To Coast Balance, because I wanted to create a safe, sacred and comfortable space where I could guide and support others. I was born in Colombia, and during my childhood, I witnessed and experienced how food, music, and dance are such important and fun ways to bring everyone together and create warmhearted memories and balance. When creating Coast To Coast Balance, I took these same principles and applied them to ones-self; food, emotional health, and environment. From these three components, I began to study and research how we all need balance, of some sort, in our lives, and how I could guide my clients into achieving their personalized version of balance.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
This path has definitely had its ups and downs! I officially launched my business during the pandemic, so right from the very beginning, I had to think of a safe way that I could meet with my clients. Therefore, all of my coaching sessions are held virtually. This initially created mixed emotions for me as when you’re talking with someone the energy is different if you’re seeing them through a screen, compared to in-person. However, being virtual has allowed me to expand my business to people from all around the world. Also, I discovered that holding virtual sessions has been the best decision for my clients, as I have found that when people are in a comfortable and safe space, that they have created, it allows them to feel more relaxed, open, and ready for the sessions and discussions.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
Of course! Coast To Coast Balance practices health and wellness from a holistic approach. This means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected and how they impact your overall health. From this, my clients and I co-create health goals that are reasonable and achievable. The Coast To Coast Balance approach provides my clients with the confidence and tools to make well-informed decisions throughout their life. I always like my clients to feel that they have learned something new (most of the time, it is something that they knew all along). Nobody knows you better than yourself!

I initially offer a Free 50-minute call session so that we can get to know each other. I find that this initial session works best as I always like to ensure that both parties feel comfortable with one another. From this introductory session alone, I have had client feedback that they already noticed a mindset transformation!

We love surprises, fun facts, and unexpected stories. Is there something you can share that might surprise us?
I have a great passion for working with people. During my 30 years of experience working in a collaborative environment, I worked as a recruitment officer and managed multiple high-end retail stores, as well as an extremely well-known and respected chiropractic office in Australia. Whilst, managing this chiropractic office my interest in wellness and lifestyle balance grew, leading me to study NLP and TLP. I am a certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner, as well as a certified Time-Line Therapy Practitioner.
