Hi, I'm Ally!
Coach and Owner/Founder of Ally Bouchard Coaching
Most days you can find me in my Buffalo, NY home or local coffee shop in my high waisted jeans and crop top sweater with a coffee mug in hand. I am a wife to my awesome advertising husband, and a mom to a beautiful little girl and two cats who act like dogs. I am a Coach and Mentor, an advocate for empowered living, and a believer that your life should be empowering, fun. I am a teacher, a homebody, a devoted friend and sister, and an expert on all things "F.R.I.E.N.D.S.". My true spirit comes out when I'm playing competitive games and my favorite thing to do in the entire world is laugh.
I am passionate about helping men & women move past the mundane life and get unstuck. My superpower is seeing where you hold yourself back from your potential and clearing the path to your true desires. I once believed in living small - but that thinking is outdated for both me and you. The power of awareness has allowed me to fully embrace my shortcomings and turn them into strengths to fully embody the person I am. It is a true honor to guide my clients down their own path of awareness and embodiment. I consider myself lucky to be a witness to their dreams.
I really believe that we are on this earth to have fun, enjoy our life, and make an impact. And I believe that starts with loving yourself and your body by stepping into your power to create a life in which you thrive.Ally Bouchard
I grew up in a large blended family in Rochester, NY, the oldest of 3 girls and 1 half-brother with the addition of 2 older step-brothers on my dad's side. I graduated SUNY Brockport in 2011 with my Bachelor's in Exercise Physiology and the greatest appreciation for the power the body holds after my return to exercise during my freshman year of college helped me overcome my first bout of depression.
I spent the next 7 years working in female-focused gyms, cardiac rehabs and medical fitness centers as an Exercise Physiologist and Health Coach working with patients on mental and physical health to prevent and reverse disease.
Though my work in health was fulfilling, at times it felt very surface level. My clients were constantly focused on the scale which kept them out of the true intelligence their body held for their life and their health. As a result, I switched the focus of my coaching and training towards helping my clients become body aware - and that was the true game changer.
I have worked not only in the clinical health space, but also specifically with clients on stress management & mental health, body image, and even relationships, career, and leadership. For every coaching modality that I have been a guide to my clients, I have also struggled and worked through the same areas. Radical awareness and acceptance of self has been the constant theme that takes everyone to new heights.
The combination of modalities that I guide my clients through today is:
Thought Work - The Mental Body
Somatics - The Physical Body
Emotional Intelligence - The Emotional Body
Human Design - The Energetic Body
With the combination and developed awareness of these modalities, you will have the blueprint of exactly who you are and what you need to thrive. It will result in an understanding of how to listen to your intuition, an increased confidence in making decisions that are aligned for you, and increased overall health and well-being as a result of leaning into exactly who you were created to be and what your unique body needs.
It is my mission to help people come back to themselves and make empowered decisions for their own lives. I believe that when we are all living in alignment with who we are we are not only healthier & happier, but the whole planet thrives as a result of living in our own genius!

I am a 6/2 Emotional Projector in Human Design
Capricorn Sun, Cancer Moon, & Libra Rising
A few of my favorite things are: dancing, laughing, Halloween, and baked goods
I got my Bachelor's in Exercise Physiology after my return to exercise brought me out of my first depression as a freshman in college. I bring the love and knowledge of the body to everything I do.
I love coffee and am obsessed with cute coffee mugs, but I can't tolerate caffeine
I originally thought I would be a teacher and still have a teacher's heart. My teaching desire shifted from educating the youth to empowering the adults.
My favorite music is 2000's pop-punk and alternative rock - hand me a shot of tequila and you have yourself a par-tay!
Awareness is the key to empowered action. Empowered action is the key to a fulfilling life.- Ally Bouchard
What If You Could Change Your Life In The Next 90 Days?
I can honestly say my work with Ally has been life changing. As a former beauty pageant contestant I struggled for half my life with yo-yo dieting, obsessing over food, and criticizing my body. As a result, I was missing out on the simple pleasures in life for fear of gaining weight. Now, I finally feel freedom when it comes to how I view food. I no longer obsesses over carbs and calories and know how to choose foods that nourish and fuel my body. I am forever grateful for her and this program for giving me the opportunity to know how to love myself again.
My work with Ally has been tremendous. I started with Ally feeling a bit depressed, lethargic, and footy brained. She allowed me to think more positively about my body, life, and journey through health and has taught me how to listen to my body and not overwork myself. She has a way of getting you to think differently and positively about the journey you are on and the potential she sees in you. She is a very genuine and warm person to work with and made my health transition easy.
As a coach, Ally made it easy to open up and communicate. I feel like I not only had a coach but a friend. I had tried for many years to make changes in my health on my own and she helped me achieve my long-standing goals and gain the confidence I was lacking not only in the gym, but in life. I made the decision to invest in myself and work with a coach and have never regretted it. I am a better person today because of it.
I am so happy about my experience with Ally. I felt like I was facing a giant challenge impossible to overcome. Ally has helped me view health differently, and made me realize the control I have in my body and my health. Ally has been extremely understanding, truthful, and free of judgement. I have never been so honest with myself, in control of my life, and ready to succeed than I am now.
The best thing about Ally's coaching style is her reassuring approach. I completed cardiac rehab after open heart surgery and came to Ally apprehensive about the future of my health and looking for a sustainable path forward. In addition to the physical changes of increased strength and flexibility, my confidence in my body's ability to sustain health and wellness through the rest of my life has gone up tremendously. Her open and authentic dialogue allowed for the honest sharing of my concerns which set the stage for realizing my true potential.
