What is a Health & Wellness Coach?
Health & Wellness coaching is a process that facilitates healthy, sustainable behavior change by challenging a client to develop their inner wisdom, identify their values, and transform their goals into action. A Health and Wellness Coach partners with clients seeking self-directed, lasting changes, aligned with their values, which promote health and wellness and, thereby, enhance well-being. In the course of their work, Health and Wellness Coaches display unconditional positive regard for their clients and a belief in their capacity for change, and honoring that each client is an expert on his or her life, while ensuring that all interactions are respectful and non-judgmental.
What’s the difference between a Health & Wellness coach and a personal trainer?
Personal training is exercise for your body; strengthening your physical being. Health & Wellness Coaching is exercise for your brain; strengthening and helping to balance your primary foods. The 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 & Wellness Coaches tailor individualized wellness programs to meet their clients' needs.
What makes a Health & Wellness Coach unique?
Relationships, exercise, career, and spirituality are just as important to your health as the food you eat. Health & Wellness Coaches understand this and take a holistic approach to supporting the whole person.
