Health coaches are being recognized as an essential part of people’s health and well-being. There is a huge demand for health coaches, not only are doctors looking to hire more health coaches, but patients are learning that working with a health coach is one of the most effective ways to improve their health.
A coach offers guidance and inspiration to help clients shift their behaviors to healthier habits by making step-by-step changes to their diet and lifestyle. The client learns about healthy foods, concepts of relationships, physical activity, careers to develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyles choices that work best for them, while learning to implement lasting changes that improve their energy, balance, and health. Health coaches focus on teaching clients to become self-sufficient by teaching them to observe their own unique responses to various modifications in food and choosing health-promoting behaviors.
