While out for dinner with friends the other day, I was asked, “What exactly do you do?” I always love having a chance to discuss this as there can be some confusion about what a Health and Lifestyle Coach is, and why people might choose to work with one.
As a certified Coach, I use a personalized, integrative and collaborative approach – emphasizing self-care and habit change. Rather than focusing on just one element, like a Personal Trainer might look at exercise or a Nutritionist at diet, I examine all life factors (nutrition, physical fitness, weight, stress, sleep, environment…) in order to help improve my clients’ health.
As a master of habit change, I offer the resources, support and accountability to help shift behaviour to healthier habits. My clients develop a deeper understanding of the foods and lifestyle choices that improve their energy, balance and health, and learn to implement lasting changes.
Why might you want to work with a Coach?
- If you don’t know what to do, or how to get started, you may need a Coach. I can provide a system, resources and support.
- If you know what to do, but you don’t do it, you may need a Coach. I can provide accountability. Basically, I will do anything I can to make you do the things you don’t want to do, so you can have what you want.
Need help? You just need to ask. Go do it!
