Meet the Trainers

Hayley Finamore

I’m a Certified Holistic Connection Coach, guiding you to a more authentic life. I truly believe that every aspect of your life is connected, and the only real way of making the lasting changes you want, is to look within your whole self. I’m here to help you figure out where you are in your journey, ask the tough questions, and realize the answers.

Born in Northern Arizona and now based in Las Vegas, Nevada, I’ve always been someone fascinated with life and connection. The shitty things we go through, the love we are and that we get to feel, and the experiences that change us at our base levels are all things that make up who we are at our core. I genuinely believe that all the hard, devastating crap I’ve been through, was to make me the empathetic and understanding person I am today. To help you and others see their limitless value on this earth.

I became a coach to help people help themselves. To realized their own strength, and the power they have within themselves, to make any goal they have a reality, and connect them to a life of authenticity. 

I get that it’s difficult to ask those big questions of yourself. The fact that you’re here means you could be ready to hear those answers from within. I know the fear that happens when you step out of that comfort zone. Being uncomfortable is the biggest sign of change. But, that’s why I’m here. I’ll create that safe space you need to grow. I’ll help you hold that mirror up to yourself until you love and are proud of the person who’s looking back.
