Why Do I Need A Health Coach?

Have you ever attempted to get healthy and fit but failed? Have you ever found it to be incredibly difficult to stick with a fitness program and nutritional program for any length of time? Have you tried “diets” that just failed over and over? If this is your current situation, you should seriously consider hiring a personal health coach. The benefits of a health coach are numerous.

Your health coach will be able to guide you towards the most effective actions you can take for the goals you are working towards. Whether you are dealing with a specific health condition, or you simply want to get into better overall shape, a coach will be able to guide you in the specific directions you need to move closer toward your goals.

As your health coach, I may recommend lifestyle changes, eliminating certain foods you are eating from your diet, adding specific foods and recipes to your diet, specific fitness programs you should be engaging in, as well as many other strategies that will increase your overall health.

In general, a health coach is focused on increasing their clients overall stamina and vitality. Other goals of a coach are generally related to the goals each individual has established for themselves. A coach for achieving good health will usually attempt to guide their clients towards the best actions they can take to achieve their personal goals.

A coach may not be able to describe the causes of a specific illness, or present a solution for a specific illness, but they will be able to move their clients towards a direction that makes them healthier all around. A coach may utilize meal plans in order to regulate the food their clients are consuming on a regular basis.

Another recommendation from a personal coach may be related to a specific exercise. Perhaps you are hoping to achieve better overall health. If this is your situation, a coach will likely recommend a solution that is similar to running a mile a day, or some other activity, that will certainly add to your overall vitality.

One of the most important aspects of having a health coach is the fact that they will help you stick with your plans. Not only will a coach develop the strategies you must implement in order to become healthier, but they will also stick with you in order to make sure you are following through with the plans that have been laid out for you. It is this follow-through approach to getting healthy that is the most important step for achieving vibrant health.

    Great post! High achievers (and pro athletes) learned long ago the importance of a good coach. Making achievable goals is half the battle. If we really want succeed, we must find a coach or mentor to guide us. And health should be our foremost battle!
