What is a Health Coach

A Health Coach is a supportive mentor that helps you set attainable wellness goals.  I stress the word attainable.  Many people become completely overwhelmed when their family physician says, “You are pre-diabetic and have high cholesterol.  You need to loose 45lb and exercise.” The doctor is 100% right.  However, you will need to loose 10lbs and 20lbs and then 30lbs before ever reaching 45lbs.

A health coach discusses your life style, spirituality, work situation, family relationships and oddly enough your relationship to food.  This methodology creates a plan that benefits you on many levels. The plan becomes your road map for success.

The plan may need to be re-adjusted a few times before reaching the goal. Just imagine winning a 2 week trip to Las Vegas or changing your work hours to 12-8.  This is life.  Your health coach will teach you the tools to respond. Life’s every changing circumstance’s does not have to change your end goal.  A health coach is the person who is there day-in and day-out to encourage a good outcome and help trouble shoot the obstacles that will come along.
