What Is a Health Coach?
If you have not heard the term "health coaching", you may find yourself wondering what a health coach does.
Think of a health coach as you would a driving instructor. A driving instructor isn't the one steering the car. But it's the one guiding you, the driver, to where you need to go.
The virtual health coaching program on HealthCoach4Me can help you:
- Identify your goals
- Create and achieve small steps toward your goal
- Improve your self-management
- Learn how to stay motivated
…all by offering you health-related messages, tips, tools, and progress updates—at no charge!
To understand more about what a health coach is, it helps to know what a health coach is not.
A health coach is NOT:
- A personal trainer
- A gym teacher
- A yoga instructor
- Someone barking orders at you
A health coach doesn't tell you what your goals should be. But a health coach can show you how to reach them.
