What is a health coach?
There is a huge demand for a new kind
of health professional, the health coach.
A health coach is a supportive mentor who helps clients
make healthy lifestyle choices, whether the goal is
to lose weight, increase energy, or sleep better at night,
a health coach motivates individuals
to make lasting changes and feel their best.
Why are they needed?
Traditional doctors and physicians contribute
to healthy living, but they don’t necessarily have the time
or resources to help their patients build healthy habits
and change their lifestyle on a day-to-day basis.
One in five Americans will die of obesity
and, every year, there are over 30 million
preventable health-related deaths.
Relationships, exercise, career, spirituality, these factors
are just as important to your health as what you eat,
and yet the current system fails to address them.
Health coaches consider all areas of a person’s life
and address a wide variety of wellness factors.
Health coaches work in conjunction with physicians,
nurses, and dietitians and serve to fill a void
in our current healthcare system.
Health coaches serve as wellness mentors who help people
find the foods, relationships, fitness routines,
and lifestyles that make them feel their best.
