Are you planning to lose weight? A health coach can provide you support, feedback, and education. Here’s a guide on the full benefits of hiring one.
Have you ever considered using a health coach to reach your weight loss goals? Health coaching is what makes us different from other diet plans, and our health coaches are the foundation of the Profile program.
Profile is not a diet, but rather a holistic lifestyle change that encompasses nutrition, activity and health coaching to help you lose weight for good.
Our individualized health coaching has proven to be a huge benefit to our members. Our certified health coaches partner with you to improve your health and wellness, maximize your personal potential, and live life to the fullest. You can lose 3X more weight when you work with a health coach than on your own!
How do health coaches differ from other types of coaches?
Much like an athletic coach motivates athletes to achieve their optimal performance, a health coach does the same for your health and weight loss.
A health coach uses their impeccable coaching skills to increase their clients’ self-awareness, motivation, accountability and confidence. Health coaches also provide support, feedback and education.
Our health coaches have completed a health coach training program
Many of our dedicated health coaches have earned a certification from a health coach training program, which can take anywhere from three months to a year to complete. They have refined their coaching skills, and are committed to helping you to live the best life possible by focusing on your overall health and wellness.
Many of our coaches come from extensive backgrounds in nutrition and fitness. Some were former Profile members themselves! After realizing the benefits of the program first-hand, they went on to become health coaches.
7 benefits of health coaching
Health coaching is a relationship built on trust, openness, and empathy. It consists of one-on-one conversations where you talk candidly about your weight loss goals and challenges. And together, you and your health coach create a plan to meet those goals.
Here are all the ways a Profile health coach can help you lose weight and live a healthier life:
1. Studies show you’ll lose 3x more weight with a health coach
The impact of health coaching on your weight loss is real – studies prove it. Research has shown that people generally lose three times more weight when working with a health coach than when trying to lose weight on their own.
Health coaching is one of the main reasons Profile members on average lose 12% of their body weight within 12 weeks.
To top it off, we’ve found that members who attend 20 health coaching appointments reach their goal weight and keep it off.
Want lasting results? A Profile health coach will help you make it happen!
2. Health coaches provide motivation and support in your corner when it counts
Everyone needs a cheerleader, and that’s the role a health coach plays in your overall health. A certified health coach encourages you through your challenges and celebrates those incremental victories that lead to your weight loss goal.
Nearly everyone experiences times when their motivation to lose weight dips. That’s when your health coach steps in as a safety net to understand your needs, offer support and get you motivated and excited to keep going. They are committed to helping you achieve health behavior change.
3. Personalized health coaching is key
At Profile, our approach to health coaching is personalized.
4. Health coaching is a safe space
It’s important to us that you are comfortable with our health coaching process. Our health coaches create a safe, trusted environment to be vulnerable in and talk openly about your struggles. They will offer you the support and no-judgment space to achieve that.
5. Health coaches help with journey mapping
Journey mapping is a path of planned, meaningful education to help you learn, grow and stay engaged on your weight loss journey. With a variety of lifestyle lessons available, your coach can help you select lessons that will have the most impact on you and your life. Profile members consistently remark that their personal relationship with their health coach as a support system and a source of motivation is one of the main reasons they experience success.
Profile members who use health coaching note that their health coaches listen and address questions and serve as positive and supportive influences. And really, who doesn’t need more positivity in their life?
A certified health coach gives you the confidence to make healthy choices. You are in the driver’s seat throughout all of your health coaching sessions. With healthy lessons, support, and nutrition tips, you can finally reshape your relationship with food.
6. A health coach holds you accountable
Have you ever recruited a friend or family member to be your designated health coach or accountability-buddy only to find out they weren’t very good at health coaching? Unless your friend or family member has gone through a health coach training program, it probably wasn’t a successful experience.
That’s not the case with a health coach or Profile’s health coaching program.
Think of your health coach as an accountability partner who is always there for you. Goals are accomplished when you take ownership of your decisions. They help you hold yourself accountable for your choices and outcomes.
Health coaches identify your goals, help you unleash your potential and hold you responsible for your actions. They are champions of your potential, sounding boards for your decision-making, and challengers of your blind spots.
Ultimately, health coaches want to see you succeed in reaching your goal and know that holding you accountable is part of the process.
