Ten years ago, no one knew what the heck health coaching was. To many, it sounded like a gimmick – pay someone to tell you to eat kale and make time for yourself? Isn’t that what registered dietitians and psychologists are for?
Scroll through the timeline of your favorite social network and you’re bound to read a post or two about someone’s current fitness journey. They’re posting photos of meals, miles run, or gym hours clocked in. They’re excited to share current stats of inches and pounds lost, showing before and after photos of disappearing double chins, jiggling arms, and muffin tops.
The IIN Health Coach‘s calling card,
What’s new and good?
has a way of putting a smile on a person’s face, even if it’s one of surprise.
We’re so used to hearing “how are you?” as we exchange greetings, never fully expecting the person to reply with an honest answer.
There are many different ways to work with a health coach, including one-on-one, in groups, through classes and workshops, in person, over the phone, via video conferencing, and even via email.
