Meet your coach
My name is Addison Caproni and my story begins on the island of St.Thomas, Virgin Islands where I grew up. My early years were immersed in the world of boating as I began competitive sailing by the age of 7. It was just me and my Optimist named RoadRunner, which at this young stage of my life taught me independence, decision making, and how to not sink, literally and figuratively. This passion has stuck with me as I continue to sail both competitively and leisurely with every opportunity I can get. Through sailing is where my coaching journey began, as I started at the age of 14 teaching kids that were my age when I took the helm. I went on to sail at Connecticut College where I graduated and was an assistant coach for 2 years.
The Coach Approach
My long tenure in the coaching industry has brought me to a point in my life where I can now better serve people through a different lens. An intensive coaching program that I enrolled in opened my opportunities to the online world of being able to broadcast my message while being rewarded for helping people out. We are at a point in evolution where supporting one another, spreading love, and establishing moral values have never been more important. Join me on this incredible journey!
Living beyond the trauma
The decision to expand beyond life coaching and niche my services to fathers going through postpartum challenges, or from a traumatic birth, and parenting obstacles manifested through the birth of my first daughter in 2019. What should have been a routine delivery quickly evolved into a nightmare due to a botched epidural nearly killing my wife and unborn child. Having to be alone and bear witness to everything that unfolded, the mixed emotions I experienced afterwards were overwhelming. As much as therapy helped, I never found a genuine connection with anybody to help navigate me through these tough times. From raising a child to planning for another one, I wish I had someone to lean on and empathize with. Instead of falling victim to what happened, I am here to grow the support of fathers who are hiding behind the societal image of machismo. It’s okay to be vulnerable, it’s okay to feel uncertain, and it’s okay to be uncomfortable, but it’s not okay to keep living like this and expect things to change on their own. I am here for you and will make it my commitment to creating a compelling future and breaking the chains of the old story that defined you.
