Effective Health Coaching: 5 Key Strategies
A Journal of the American Medical Association study, published in 2014, compared different weight loss programs and found that in addition to exercise, motivational behavioral support led to more successful weight loss.
Understanding what motivates someone is a critical first step to effective health coaching that drives true behavior change.
The 5 key health coaching strategies that have shown to enhance motivation, increase health engagement, and ultimately help clients achieve their desired goals:
Assess: Respect the client’s knowledge and experience.
Identify: Acknowledge the client’s time restraints.
Listen: Identify the client’s source motivation.
Guidance: Help the client create realistic goals.
Support: Acknowledge the client’s achievements, no matter how small.
Driving behavior change is what effective health coaches do, and getting the best training is key to your success as a health coach.
Great health coaches find the best-accredited program that matches their goals and provides the skills and tools to be the best in the field of health and wellness. And the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® (FDN) course is that program!
FDN training sets you apart from all other health & wellness coaches by helping you to identify the real physiological, biochemical, and behavioral problems that will allow clients to improve overall health & well-being.
