“Why invest in a coach when I can do it myself and save money?”
Health coaches are a relatively new phenomenon in the health and fitness world.
Our practice differs from regular personal/fitness trainers as the concept of health is much more than just what you eat and how much you exercise.
Health is by definition: “the ability of individuals to adept and self-manage when facing physical, mental or social challenges.”
As a health coach our job is to tackle down all the areas of life (relationships, career, physical health, self image etc) and to discuss ways to reduce stress, increase rest, energy, happiness, and to focus on improving the overall quality of life—not just in the gym.
Here are 10 reasons how hiring a coach will benefit you:
As I explained before in one of my posts, CLARITY = POWER. Getting clear on your goals is THE KEY for success. Your coach will help you determine what’s important for you, will teach you how to prioritize and will help you stay focused on your goals, eliminating all the “surrounding noises”.
Research has proven that people achieve more when they are held accountable. The deeper value of investing in a coaching program is that, hiring a professional can help you ignite the fire in you and move you faster toward new levels of achievement.
3. GET TO YOUR GOAL FASTER
Gain a competitive advantage. A coach can help you get from point a to b faster than you could on your own, helping you to get quicker to your final destination
Feeling empowered means taking charge of your own life. Whether is in your work place, with your colleagues, with your family, with your friends, with your body, with your illness and for you caring for yourself a coach will guide you through the process and they will clue you to things you may not see as they are not invested emotionally in each situation.
A coach will help you stay focused on your goal, will spur you when unmotivated and give you new ideas on how to achieve your goal, keep you on track, among others. It will help you identify your weaknesses, and will teach you to invest time and energy towards your goals.
If you invest in a health coach, chances are you will recover the investment and even save money in medications, doctor’s visits, unnecessary supplements, crazy fad diets, ineffective treatments, and fewer sick days.
7. WEIGHT LOSS
As a health coach our job is to help you develop personal integrity. It’s all about learning to say what you are going to do and to actually follow through. In addition to develop personal integrity around your weight loss goals, a coach will dive deep into what caused the weight gain in the first place, so that you can work on the cause and will finally keep the weight off for good.
By addressing various components of life during a Health Coaching program, you will embark on a journey of clearing out old habits and patterns and self-limiting beliefs. When completed you will finally find your true purpose, effortlessly. Being healthy is about being 100% true to your self. NO COMPLAINTS, NO EXCUSES OR APOLOGIES.
Happiness and Health are one in the same. Because a coach helps you identify and align your values, create a focus, cut through clutter, and clear tolerations, it will help you increase your fulfillment. Once you will learn how to manage stress and once you will be fulfilled you will be able to tuen the “happy button” on for good.
10. BETTER RELATIONSHIPS
When all your life is balanced you are feeling strong, sexy, confident, and empowered, and that’s when you become attractive. When we have a healthy relationship with ourselves, you can have smooth relationships with others.
Investing in a Health Coach will nourish your body, mind and soul and will help you stoke your success. Now the question is: How much is that worth to you?
