Why try this growing trend? Because if you’re like many people, you know what you should do to improve your health; but you have trouble getting started or sticking with a more healthy lifestyle…so nothing ever changes for long.
Health coaches can provide one-on-one, step-by-step support. Whether your goal is to lose weight, eat healthier, sleep better, have more energy, exercise more, lower your stress level, reduce your risk for chronic diseases and/or recover from an illness or injury—that may increase your odds of succeeding at making permanent life-enhancing changes.

There are plenty of health coaches out there, but not every one is right for you. If you’d like to work with a health coach, but don’t know where to start, here are a few guidelines for choosing the health coach who’s right for you.
“Micheal Jordan had people in his life to help him succeed. Whatever we might call them personal trainer, basketball coach, nutritionist, it all comes down to guidance for the right professional for you.”
1. Take advantage of the Free Consultation: Many health coaches offer a free consultation as a way to test-drive the relationship and explore whether you’d be a good match. This is a valuable time for you to get questions answered, but don’t expect to get every single one of your questions answered in the first session. Instead, use it as a opportunity to gauge how the coach makes you feel during the conversation. Do you feel heard? Safe? Not judged? Does she make you want to spill your guts? Do her questions make challenge you or make you think (maybe in a way that does feel a little uncomfortable)? Answering yes to any of these questions is a good sign.

2. Verify Credentials: Make sure the coach has the right certifications and credentials. There are many people that think they can guide someone especially on nutrition but has no experience for long term success.

3. Do some research: If you come across a health coach you like; sign up for their newsletter, like their Facebook page and follow them on Instagram. You’ll get a taste for their philosophy, personality and style while picking up some helpful tips in the process.

4. Don’t look for a bargain: If you plan to select a health coach based on price alone, you may be doing yourself a disservice. Working with a health coach may not seem to offer anything tangible in the way a juice cleanse or package of fitness classes does, but ultimately you’re making an investment in your long-term health and well-being. That, is priceless.
