The better question is why do you not have a coach in your life? Professionals have coaches in their life to help them figure things out. Think of athletes, personal trainers, or leaders for example. This is the game of life, but it is real.
Studies have shown that health and wellness coaches “results in clinically relevant improvements in multiple biomarker risk factors (including systolic and diastolic blood pressure, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, fasting glucose, body weight, body mass index, waist circumference, and cardiorespiratory fitness) in diverse populations.”
Coaches help you draw out the expert of your life, which is you! We will help hold you accountable for your plan, made by you and planned by you with our expertise in behavior change. Coaches are used for your unique personal guidance based on your strengths, challenges, and goals. Coaches are needed for accountability to stay on track, and motivation to overcome obstacles that may be interfering with your goals. Overall, a coach can help you make sustainable lifestyle changes that can improve your health, mental well-being, and overall quality of life.
Think of coaching as the intervention to help keep you outside of the medical system as long as possible, and once you are there, this is the support you need to manage your care along with your medical professional.
