Here at Transformation Academy we are excited to announce our April’s Transformation Academy Rising Star – Elizabeth Rose Lo!
Our goal with this initiative is to recognize and celebrate group membership who demonstrate the heart and service of a coach. Each monthly recipient of this recognition will be selected for a unique reason. Some will be seasoned coaches who serve as valuable mentors within the group. Others may be just starting their coach-training journey and exude a contagious attitude or passion. Others may be actively supporting other group members, whether by providing resources, answering common questions, or providing moral support. Regardless of each of our wonderful group members’ background or experience, we all benefit from the mutual support and varied perspectives offered within this diverse group!
The Rising Star initiative is a way to give a special THANK YOU to those who go above and beyond to share of themselves within this community.

WHAT IS YOUR NICHE (COACHING FOCUS) AND HOW DID YOU CHOOSE IT?
“Living The WELLTHY Life” deals with the eight dimensions of wellness…I teach our community that we are more than just a fit body or a fat bank account. We are multi-dimensional beings. Kind of like an orange: outside we see one whole fruit but inside we see different dimensions. Not everyone is an apple. We are a segmented orange inside. Although I do spend a lot of time coaching low carb/ketogenic nutrition, I make sure to incorporate the other dimensions of WELLNESS to attain OPTIMUM health.
WHO IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?
Most of my existing clients are women, especially moms.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME A LIFE COACH?
In January 2020, my three kids and I went to China for a two-month vacation to visit my husband, and it turned out God had other plans…Due to the pandemic, we weren’t able to go back to our home country, the Philippines, and it was at that time I discovered Transformation Academy (TA). I started with one course, then the next, and next and next… The whole of 2020 was soul searching, and now I know I needed that pause to answer the call that I know deep within I have been called to do. TA gave me the skills and the confirmation I needed. In my search, I have taken over 20 courses with TA, and it finally dawned on me that all my life I have been called to do this—The WELLTHY Coach with a message to tell the world that we are not simply alive to have a fit body or a fat bank account. We have mental, emotional, spiritual and all the other dimensions to take care of. And that’s when I embraced my call and formed The WELLTHY Community and started Teaching on the WELLTHY life.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN COACHING?
In the past, I have been the “advisor” or “counselor” for my family, friends, church mates and coworkers, but it never really dawned on me that I have been doing “coaching” or mentoring for the longest time…since my college days when I became a Bible study leader over 20 years ago. But if we refer to when did I get certified as a coach, then it was in 2020, so that’s 2 years.
HOW DID YOU GET YOUR FIRST CLIENT?
When I officially launched my coaching as a business, I always knew my role was to train coaches. And that’s exactly what I do. With Transformation Academy’s Master Coaching Certification (Master Mindset and Master Life Coach), the Group Coaching Certification and my Faculty Designation at the Wellness Council of America (WELCOA), plus my years of experience as a quality management consultant and a training supervisor, I realized that I have been preparing to train the trainers my whole career—to raise coaches and that’s exactly what I’m doing now.
HOW HAS YOUR COACHING JOURNEY CHANGED YOUR LIFE?
It has allowed me to touch more lives through the coaches that I have in the community. We are not just adding transformed lives but we are actually multiplying . We don’t just touch people by giving them better physical health, but by giving them back their confidence, their zest for life—we, as a community, are transforming lives.
WHAT IS THE MOST CHALLENGING PART OF BEING A LIFE COACH?
As a coach to the community coaches that we have, the challenge is helping them form their own coaching teams. It’s dealing with each of them beyond their physical health (most of them are ketogenic coaches). As their mother coach, I also help them deal with the other dimensions of wellness. It’s a joy to nurture coaches who mainly help people with their physical health and then eventually become life coaches too, helping in the other dimensions of their clients’ well-being.
WHAT IS THE MOST FULFILLING PART OF BEING A LIFE COACH?
It’s when my coaches tell me they are so grateful to be part of our community where they grow and where they make an impact in people’s lives while making an income as well. Such a joy.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR MOST INSPIRATIONAL COACHING MOMENT, WITH A CLIENT?
I do group coaching. I started with 24 coaches, and after 90 days my coaches have already brought In their own “baby” coaches onboard, so I am already a grandmother coach in our community. We treat each other like family. We don’t aim for perfection but, rather, we make sure we aim for progress—1 percent better every day. The most inspiring moment is seeing them grow by the day embracing the WELLTHY LIFE that they deserve… it’s not the highlights, it’s the little progress that happens daily where I see them grow.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE COACHING ACTIVITY OR EXERCISE TO DO WITH CLIENTS?
My community coaches are my clients, and we have a daily group chat and we have two to three weekly zoom calls where we do trainings or Q&A.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST EFFECTIVE STRATEGY FOR FINDING CLIENTS AND/OR GROWING YOUR BUSINESS?
Building community is the most amazing way to go if we want clients. Provide value in the company. Offer free webinars where people find valuable content and establish trust and authenticity. We want to follow leaders or do business with people we trust.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE YOURSELF BACK WHEN YOU FIRST DREAMED OF BECOMING A COACH?
I never dreamed of being a “coach”, but I always knew deep within my heart that I would be speaking to a large audience. I know I am not yet there, but I know it’s coming soon. So if I can talk to my young self, I would tell her, “What you’re seeing by faith—it will happen. Trust God. Trust the process. Invest in self-development. Continue to dream. It will happen.”
WHAT IS THE IMPACT YOU WANT TO MAKE IN THIS WORLD?
I want to make the world see that we are ORANGES inside—multi-dimensional. If one area gets rotten or neglected, it affects the whole fruit. So many people are super wealthy, yet their kids are needy for love. We cannot neglect the emotional or mental aspect of our being in our quest to build buildings. We have social responsibilities because that is part of our social wellness. Spend time building your faith because you need to nourish your spiritual well-being. You have to be full filled with your occupation and not just earn a living. We are multi-dimensional so start taking care of the dimensions you have neglected for a long time because only then can we can live THE WELLTHY LIFE.
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH TRANSFORMATION COACHING MAGAZINE READERS?
I BELIEVE that we are like ORANGES and LEMONS. We may be one fruit on the outside but we are MULTI-DIMENSIONAL inside. We can’t just have a fit body and a fat bank account. We can’t neglect the other dimensions of our well-being like emotional, mental, social and all the other aspects because, like the orange or lemon fruit, when one part is rotten, it destroys the whole fruit. A holistic and deep approach to health—dealing with the eight dimensions—is a must if we all want to live a WELLTHY LIFE.
