How can coaching help?
Health & Fitness coaching is a tool that anyone can use to make positive practical changes to their lifestyle.
Coaching can help you identify unhealthy areas in your life whilst providing you with the knowledge and skills to take active and decisive steps to removing them.
Furthermore, coaching will enable you to reach those health and fitness goals that perhaps you have been struggling with.
In addition, from the coaching experience you will enjoy a sense of empowerment which will instil the confidence you need to take control of your health.
What is it like to be coached?
Exciting, intense, powerful and challenging.
Coaching, unlike other methodologies, is an active process. The coach works with the client in a supportive yet directive manner. It is the coach’s responsibility to identify unhealthy habits in their client’s lifestyle that could compromise health.
Once these lifestyle habits have been identified the coach will develop strategies to help the client make the necessary changes.
However, the coaching process doesn’t always work this way. If the client has a set of clear goals that they wish to pursue, the coach will construct a personalised plan to best help the client achieve those goals.
To further improve the client’s success the coach, during the weekly hour consultation, will set objectives and targets.

Client and Coach Relationship
This is best viewed as a partnership. The client and coach will work together in the pursuit of identified goals. Though it is rarely stated in the profession, perhaps because it could be off-putting, but the onus to implement objectives is primarily placed on the client. Thus the client must be prepared to follow up on the strategies devised by the coach.
The coach’s chief concern is that the client is provided with the best advice and guidance. Even if the advice or guidance is likely to be received with incredulity and/or hostility, perhaps because it challenges preconceived beliefs, the coach is duty bound to put honesty before all else.
For the reasons identified above it is important that the client enters the coaching relationship with an open mind and willingness to receive information objectively.
Also, when the coach sets goals and targets, which will naturally arise from the consultation sessions and be agreed on in advance, the client will be expected to take action.
