I am Melanie Lane, MD CPCC, President and Founder of ZING! Empowerment Coaching, where I coach people struggling to achieve better health. I educate, inspire, and empower my clients to design and actually integrate healthy, enjoyable lifestyles .I am a board-certified Family Physician who left clinical practice in 2009 to pursue my passion for empowering others. My career in coaching blossomed from the belief that a wise, healthy self already thrives within each of us and that we can lead long, meaningful lives when we set the wisdom of that healthy self free. My inspiration for helping others get healthy sparked during my own wellness journey. Flash back to 1994: I was 40 pounds heavier, ate whatever I craved in large quantities, and exercised only when trudging up the stairs at my apartment. I slept poorly, suffering low self-esteem and very high cholesterol. Fast forward to today: I genuinely enjoy eating nutritious food in reasonable portions, and I enthusiastically look for opportunities to physically challenge myself. (I recently achieved my first degree black belt in Southern Shaolin Tiger-Crane Kung Fu.) My cholesterol remains low and my self-esteem high. I accomplished all of this without diet pills, fad diets, expensive exercise equipment, or surgery, and I have maintained my present weight and healthy lifestyle for nine years. I believe others can do this too, and I am here to catalyze the achievement of their dreams.
