Should you hire an Online Health Coach?


Tagged:

Have you ever thought about hiring an online health coach? For many people, working with a personal trainer , nutritionist, or health coach is the ideal solution to helping them take control of their health.

The problem with these one on one services is the fact they comes with quite a hefty price tag. If you wanted to lose two stone then it would require a minimum of 2 sessions per week for at least 3 months. That would be based on a weight loss of just over 2 pound per week. The cost of this would be over £1000 which is out of many peoples budgets. It's also a short term solution as after 3 months, you're either on your own, or splashing out more cash.

The rise in popularity of online health coaching has meant that the premium service you desire and need is now much more affordable. You still receive the personal touch from an online health coach but you won't physically meet in person.

Instead you're guided through a structured online health programme which allows you to take control of your health. You will receive expert coaching and guidance from a fully qualified and experienced online health coach. Along with this you're joining an online community who are there to help and support each other.

 With my online coaching service, you receive even more than you would get through other online training services. Nutrition and your mindset are the forgotten pieces to the puzzle. I ensure that all areas are covered. You'll work through a structured programme designed to help you take control of your health. I focus on you and only you. It's a programmed created by myself, but one that allows you to make your own decisions and find what will work for you to improve your health.

To help you decide if an online health coach is for you, I have put together a few questions that you must ask yourself.

What can you afford?

The biggest selling point for many is the cost of online coaching. As mentioned earlier a one to one personal trainer is quite a pricy investment. It can cost you £1000s to achieve your dream body and good health. Working with an online health coach still requires an investment, but one that is affordable to many, and guarantees a good return on investment. You'll receive expert coaching and support even after you've finished the 'Take Control' programme.

How much instruction do you need?

The next question you must ask is 'How much instruction do you need?' When beginning you health and fitness journey, it can be overwhelming and quite scary. What should I do first? Is this going to be effective? What should I eat?

The idea of the 'Take Control' programme is to deliver all of the information you need, in a way that is easy to understand and follow. It makes the path become clearer and you'll learn a lot about yourself and what will work specifically for you.

You're joining a community just for people who go through the programme. This group provides you with ongoing support and guidance even after you've completed the programme. Here you will find recipes and workouts ideas, you'll be able to discuss with other people your journey, and ask people questions about their challenges. I'm also there to instruct, support, and guide you when needed. We're in this together!

What options do you currently have?

Look around your local area and research various other ways of achieving your dream body. You could join a gym which would give you access to lots of fancy equipment but no coaching. Maybe take part in a group exercise class or outdoor bootcamp that would help you exercise and keep you motivated, but without the personal touch you need. You could join a weight loss support group which would help with accountability, but not the expert advice. As you can see each of the local services on offer have benefits but they also lack other essential parts that will help you achieve the best results possible.

The beauty of my 'Take Control' programme is that you receive everything you need and it's all in one place. The expert advice, exercise, nutrition, accountability, and motivation. You're also joining a community of like minded people aspiring to become healthier even when they have a busy work/life schedule.

What motivates you?

Some people need a friend to go to the gym with, or a personal trainer to motivate them through each and every workout. Others are motivated being part of a community. Some can workout alone knowing that a health professional is reviewing their compliance with the programme.

The first thing you must do is discover what motivates you rather than who can motivate you. The 'Take Control' programme allows you to discover what factors motivate you and how these can be used to help you keep on track.

An online health coach can motivate and guide you through your fitness journey much more than a physical trainer. 

How busy is your weekly schedule?

I focus on helping people who are striving to live a healthy lifestyle in a busy world. One thing that I love about online coaching is the fact that you can fit the 'Take Control' programme in to your current lifestyle. Everything is online, meaning you can go through the programme at a time that suits you. Log in when the kids have gone to bed, ask a question at 5am, or squeeze a module in on your lunch break. Online coaching is pretty much open 24/7 so you can decide how to plan each day. It allows you to plan time for your workout, family, and your career.

If you have an unpredictable schedule then online coaching is perfect for you.

Should you hire an online health coach?

Now that you've asked yourself the five questions above, you should be able to decide if signing up to the 'Take Control' programme would work for you.

Overall, online coaching is a perfect service for those of you who live a busy life and require support and guidance to take control of your health. It allows you to improve your health and achieve your dream body. It's affordable, tailored to your needs, and accessible anytime.
