Frequently Asked Questions: Health Coaching

What is health coaching?
 

Health coaching is a collaborative and personalized program that focuses on improving health and wellness. Health Coaching builds an individual’s capacity to achieve short- and long-term health and fitness goals. Participants in a health coaching program interact one-on-one with their health coach by telephone, instant messenger, email and online journal.Unlike personal training or counseling, YOU, the client, are the expert when working with a health coach. Whether you’re working toward general wellness or a more specific health-related issue, a health coach will focus on enhancing your quality of life. Our health coach guides, motivate, provide customized resources, and help you to set achievable goals. Health Coaches do not diagnose, prescribe, or give advice. Instead health coaches use their expertise to provide you with tools, not opinions.

The role of a health coach is unique. A health coach will not just ask you if you have done your crunches for the day UNLESS that is what you want your health coach to do. Instead, the health coach is there to help you identify and achieve whatever goals you set for improved vitality by coordinating the many resources available to you through this and other programs.

Do I have to have a serious health issue to benefit from a health coach?
  
No. We know that no two people are exactly the same and your health status may vary from day to day. Health coaches help you to assess your level of health and well-being and to work on the issues at hand. Your health coach will provide the human touch to motivate you toward setting and achieving your goals through a personalized plan of action. However, if you do have a serious health issue, your health coach can help. If you need to modify your lifestyle due to an issue such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and/or musculoskeletal injuries, a degreed and highly trained expert health coach can assist.

I’m not sure health coaching is right for me. How do I decide?

How much time will health coaching take?

The time you devote to health coaching is entirely at your discretion. Communication between you and your Personal Health Coach will be as often as needed and will be determined on an individual basis. You will be paired with a health coach who will remain with you throughout your entire health coaching process. Communication between you and your health coach may occur every day, just once per week, or even less whether it is by email, journal or a combination of both.If you would like to spend more time learning about your challenge and your solutions you have come to the right place. Through the health coaching program you will have access to a comprehensive library of lifestyle education and resource materials that will be hand selected by your health coach specifically for you. These resources come from nationally acclaimed resource providers.
