What is health coaching?
A certified health coach is trained to work with a client to help them reach his or her goal that is health and fitness related. The health coach will work closely with the client to develop goal statements, develop a realistic timeline to achieve the goal(s), select useful tools and strategies to overcome life’s inevitable obstacles, and provide support along the way.
Why should I use a health coach to help me reach my goal(s)?
A health coach will be able to help you break down your goal into smaller, more achievable steps that are laid out in a plan created by both of you. This enables you to have complete ownership in your path to success, as well as create a realistic program that will work for you! A health coach can also provide you with the necessary tools and strategies to help you navigate through challenges that will come your way.
Who is the ideal candidate for health coaching?
An ideal candidate for health coaching is someone who is ready to make a change in their life in order to improve their health. Whether you are interested in achieving a healthier weight, changing your dietary habits, beginning an exercise program, sticking to an exercise program, lowering your blood pressure, or signing up for your first race, a health coach can help you develop a tailored plan to reach your goals. You don’t have to be a client of the studio to sign up for our health coaching program. We also have Skype or phone options available for those who are not located in Houston or cannot make it to the studio for weekly follow-up sessions.
