What is a Coach???
There are many different types of coaches and what these coaches provide for people. I want to explain to you my own definition of a coach and why coaching others is my true passion in life.
The term coach comes from the French language meaning “a horse-drawn carriage.” This carriage carries passengers from point A to point B. Very similar to what I do for my own clients. I take them from one point in their journey with nutrition and fitness and help them arrive at another. I do this by constantly educating and providing accountability during our time together, no matter how long that may be. Some clients stay with me for years while others only 3-6 months, depending on the individual and their needs. My goal is to educate each client well enough so that they can take what they learn from me and continue to apply it to their life from here on out so that they can sustain the changes that they have made in our journey together.
When you reach out to me for a free coaching call we will first discuss what made you reach out, where you are in your journey right now, what steps have you taken in the past and what are your goals. What is driving your goals? What are you capable of? What does your lifestyle look like? What are your stressors? Each person’s journey is completely different and must be coached as such. All of my nutrition and training programs are custom tailored to fit each individual client and their needs. The more honest information I can gather from you, the more tailored I can make your nutrition and workout regimen to fit your specific individual needs and goals. At the end of these calls we will go over any questions that you may still have. You can then decide if hiring a coach is exactly what you need to get the ball rolling. I truly believe that everyone can benefit from having someone to hold them accountable and provide education and structure. I, myself, have my own coach for that reason.
It gives me great fulfillment and joy to know how much I can impact someone’s journey. Not just for 6 months but for years afterwards. My goal is to change your entire mindset around nutrition and training. This is a lifestyle change. Not a “diet,” not a “New’s Year’s resolution.”
I would like to share with you a client’s testimonial . . .
“In the past 8 weeks I have had some ups and downs with my newly acquired eating habits and my new workout regimen. If it would have been any other trainer, I am not sure if I would have made it, but luckily it wasn’t just anybody.
You were patient with me and my frustrations when I had to learn how to read the back of the package under ingredients and not believe the “all natural” label on the front. You gave me inspiration when I’d had a long day and didn’t want to workout. You provided understanding when I went way over my target daily calories because I couldn’t say no to finishing every last bite of my Chipotle.
Anybody with training can tell someone how to do an exercise or what to eat or what not to eat, but not everyone can do what you did. You helped me, and my man, make more than one major lifestyle change. We are cooking healthy meals at home together. I got rid of my gym membership because I was spending too much money on workouts you taught me I could do at home.
Thank you, for being patient, understanding, inspiring, and non-judgmental. But most of all, thank you for helping me reach my goals and not giving up on me.”
Reading and receiving feedback like this is so amazing and brings a huge smile to face every time. There will be ups and downs in every journey but as long as you don’t give up you will never fail. Learn from each setback and treat them as lessons learned and continue to improve yourself each and every day.
