Life Coaches - Who are they and how can they help?

May 16, 2008
Sometimes sticking to that new workout schedule or new meal plan is more difficult than you expected. You might get busy, get off track or lose the drive and motivation. Maybe you try a workout buddy or personal trainer, but that still isn't solving your problem. More people are turning to life coaches now. It's becoming more popular because it does make a difference for many.

A life coach can make an impact on your life and be a key motivator for your healthy lifestyle. A life coach is not just a personal trainer, but a consultant and therapist as well. He or she helps evaluate your resources, goals and values. A life coach can help create personal successes whether it is to lose 15 pounds, three inches around your waste, or eat foods lower in cholesterol.

A life coach's goal is to help others succeed. This person is to help you use your full potential. A life coach helps others make drastic improvements in their lives.

There are many people out there whose jobs are to help others achieve their goals. Some are called personal trainers, other life coaches, and then there are people called lifestyle fitness coaches. A lifestyle fitness coach is a combination of a personal trainer and a life coach.

When looking for a life coach, see what his or her background is. A life coach can be more general and cover areas ranging from health, finances or relationships. Or a life coach might have an expertise in one area versus another. Search around and see what kind of coach will best fit your needs.

There are many benefits you can gain by working with a life coach:

- Having a more balanced life
- Taking better care of yourself
- Having a motivator/supporter in your life
- Making better decisions for yourself
- Making more goals for yourself and striving for them
- Having more energy
- Feeling better physically and mentally

Life coaches can work with you in many different ways. A life coach can e-mail or call you on a weekly basis for motivation if getting to the gym is a difficulty for you. Or a life coach can work with you one-on-one at the gym with or without a personal trainer. He or she can e-mail you new workout routines weekly if exercising has become monotonous. Your coach can also help you with a nutrition log and help you stay on track with your meal plan.

Trying a new workout or nutrition plan can be frustrating, especially doing it alone. A life coach can be the person who keeps you on track or helps you if you have questions. Sometimes the hardest part is beginning that new plan, but a life coach can help you incorporate that new workout schedule or nutrition plan into your daily routine.
