WHAT IS A HEALTH/WELLNESS COACH?
A Health/Wellness Coach is a supportive mentor and wellness authority who works with clients to help them feel their best through food and lifestyle changes. Instead of prescribing one diet or way of exercising, Health Coaches tailor individualized wellness programs to meet their clients' needs.
Relationships, exercise, career, and spirituality are just as important to your health as the food you eat. Health Coaches understand this and take a holistic approach to supporting the whole person. Find out how health coaching stacks up against other health and wellness jobs.
WHAT EXACTLY DOES A HEALTH/WELLNESS COACH DO?
Do you ever wish that you had someone who would help you navigate your wellness goals? Do you wish you had someone who could put you on the right path, give you the right tools, motivate you to keep pursuing your wellness goals and keep you accountable? You don’t have to be alone on your journey.
A health/wellness coach helps you with the development of sustainable strategies to bring overall wellness, health, and well-being into your life.
They provide highly personalized help working with your strengths and values in creating plans for a long-term wellness strategy and giving you the tools you need to achieve your personal wellness goals.
Depending on the area of focus (weight management, hypertension, stress, cardiovascular, diabetes, etc) and your wellness coach's expertise and education, they may be able to help you with setting goals for improved health. Areas of goal setting may include:
mental and emotional health
lifestyle changes in behavior to improve a person's overall well-being
Health/Wellness coaches are also key motivators in helping you stay on track as you make lifestyle changes. A wellness coach should be able to provide small steps to achieve goals and provide guidance and support along the way.
