I feel the term “health coach” is thrown around rather loosely. What does “Health Coach” truly mean? Let’s look at the definition:
“Health coaching, also referred to as wellness coaching, is a process that facilitates healthy, sustainable behavior change by challenging a client to identify their values, and transform their goals into action.”
Health Coach 101: Do your research
Some coaches are honest and out to make an impact on others. They are dedicated to learning and enhancing the experience you have as a customer and helping you achieve your goals. Others are out only to make an income. How do you know who is who? I mean, it’s not wrong but rather completely necessary for coaches to make an income. This is their chosen career path. But, you want to make sure your money is spent wisely right?
How Long Have They Been At It?
How long have you followed this person? Are they consistent in their posting? I believe in all kinds of coaches. I am a Beachbody coach and know other BB coaches who have changed peoples lives. Hundreds of peoples lives! They are good at what they do and they do it with consistency and dedication. I also know Beachbody coaches who are horrible. It’s a sad, simple fact. Anyone can be a coach. It’s just like opening your own business. Anyone can open a business, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be successful.
Do You Connect With Their Personality?
Every coach has their own style of coaching, and their personalities shine through. Make sure you feel like you connect to that person. Results are going to be better that way!
Do You Connect Or Are Intrigued By Their Lifestyle?
Some coaches (like me for example) tend to lean towards holistic living and advocate for natural wellness. Others have different approaches. I love running and have several half marathons under my belt as well as one full. Other coaches like body building, bikini competing, or CrossFit. That may be something you would like to try in the future. Make sure that even if you aren’t necessarily living like your coach, it’s something that you could see yourself doing as you learn more and become educated in health and wellness.
Understand YOU Are Going To Have To Do The Work
Your coach can give you amazing information and be super motivating and wiling to help you improve your life, but they can’t do it for you. You have to come at this with a willingness to work through lack of motivation and pushing through the hard days. Your coach will be there to encourage and push you to be better, but in the end you are the only one that can put in the time and work.
Make Sure They Are Well Rounded
A coach that only talks fitness but doesn’t hit on nutrition is missing a vital component. That’s why I love coaching through Beachbody. We provide you with all the tools to be successful, and then make sure you are using them properly and answer any questions you have. I plug you into an online community where I’m with you as long as you need me, dedicated to seeing you hit your goals. If you don’t connect with me, make sure you find someone who is well rounded! I’m not everyone’s cup of tea, and that’s okay! More than anything I want you to see results, and that happens when you work with someone you feel connected to, and is knowledgeable and well rounded in all things health related.
How My Services Work:
I do a one-on-one call or chat with you and get a good understanding of your goals, your deep seated “why”, and your personal struggles. I then match you up with the program and nutrition plan that best aligns with your needs. Right now we have an amazing special with full access to all our programs for a year, which allows you to change things up whenever you want!
Once we get your program and plan in place I plug you into one of my accountability groups. I’m with you making sure you’re using the programs correctly, answering any nutrition questions you have, sharing recipes, motivation, tips, and overall heath education with you!
After the initial group is over you have the unlimited ability to enter into all my future groups for as long as you want!
I also add you to a Facebook Community for past and present challengers.
This community is filled with valuable information to help you live a health driven life. I cover fitness, nutrition, and so much more. It’s an open forum to ask questions, gain knowledge, and inspire to you live better daily.
