What is Health Coaching?
Health Coaching is the newest way to make the hard work of being healthy, easier.
A health coach partners with clients on everything from physical health, activity levels, nutritional patterns, personal demands, time management, stress management and organizational issues.
- “I know that I’m overweight and should lose a few pounds”
- “I know I need to get more rest”
- “I’m just too busy working”
- “I know I should take better care of myself, I just can’t afford it”
Statements like these are common. No one can afford to get sick…but, you also can’t afford not to invest in your wellbeing.
Why do YOU need a Health Coach?
Everyone who wants to be good at anything has at least one coach. Working with a health coach sets yourself up for success and helps you learn how to be good at being healthy and well.
Being healthy by living a wellness lifestyle isn’t a secret, but knowing something and doing something are two different things. Just because you know what to do doesn’t mean you are going to do it. Unhealthy behaviours develop over the course of time, so replacing those behaviours with healthy ones requires time.
With health coaching, emphasis is placed on behavioural change, personal accountability and follow-through.
What’s your health worth to you?
If you suffer from a health condition, including obesity – now considered a leading cause of death – how much would you pay to get rid of it?
Ask yourself what could you do in your life if you had just 1%, 5% or even 25% increased energy or better health?
If you felt stronger, felt better, looked better and had more energy, what could you have in your life that your present condition prevents you from having now?
Have you found yourself going from one diet to another with little change or joining a gym each year, only to stop going within a couple of months or even buying exercise equipment to use at home, only to have it collect dust?
You are not alone and until you address the behaviours that need to be changed, all the equipment and diets in the world are not going to produce sustainable healthy changes.
It’s time to stop repeating the patterns of years gone by and take the first step with a health coach to start your journey towards a healthy future.
If you don’t have time to be sick you must take time to be well.
