A Health and Wellness Coach will help you reach your goals and create permanent change.
What is a Health and Fitness Coach?
A health and fitness coach is a professional who works with an individual or groups that have a health or physical goal, whether it is to eat healthier or have a certain physique. This takes place by way of helping you to make a lifestyle change that helps reach your desired health or physique and maintain it.
What does a health and fitness coach do?
Health and fitness coaches motivate clients who have a desire to reach health and fitness related goals that they may have but have not been able to accomplish by themselves. Some of the more common goals are eating healthy, losing weights and building a desired physique, just to name a few.
The coach helps you to identify roadblocks that have prevented you from attaining your health and fitness goals and works with you to make those goals a reality.
How does this process begin?
– The process begins with a conversation in person or via phone. During the duration of this conversation, you inform the coach what he/she wants to accomplish.
– The coach proceeds to work with the you to create a program that is designed to meet your goals.
– The coach creates a detailed action plan for you outlining each step needed to be taken to achieve your goals, along with foreseeable challenges that might stand in the way of achieving them.
– Your coach guides you through the steps needed to be taken to reach your desired goals. As a team, you and your coach carry out their tasks to make your goals a reality.
– The coach provides the client motivation, support and the necessary tools needed to reach your emotional health and physical goals. The time duration to complete each step towards the goals varies, depending on the individual goal and the clients work ethics. Your coach will hold you accountable to keeping your commitments.
What will YOU be doing?
Your coach will assign you things to do to work towards your goals in between coaching sessions. You will be held accountable for performing those assigned tasks and will receive support along the way from your coach. The length of time from beginning to completion of the goals will depend on when the client and coach agree on a beginning date and ending date. This can range from 3 months to 6 months or even longer if you should want or need more time. The details of this will be discussed and agreed upon by both the client and coach during the initial consultation and revisited if necessary.
