What is Health Coaching and How Can it Help Me?

What is Health Coaching and How Can it Help Me?

At Performance Health & Fitness, all members (including trial members) receive our complimentary Smart Start Program. The program is designed to provide our new members with the tools to get a great start on making lasting lifestyle changes, and consists of 4 sessions with our certified fitness and health experts.

Some participants finish the program thinking… ok I think I got this. The trainer I worked with gave me some great information to sort out all of the health and wellness information I’ve learned on Google, showed me what I needed to work on, and told me what I need to do in order to achieve my goals.

They leave us feeling motivated, inspired and educated enough that they want to try to do this on their own, which is AWESOME!

What about some of those of you that want to get a plan in order to live a healthy lifestyle and all you need is to be told what to do?

If that is the case then health/lifestyle coaching is the right service for you to invest in.

We have three health coaches on staff here at Performance and our goal during our meetings is to help you set small goals that lead to the bigger picture or your long term goals. We are here to hold you accountable to your small goals and we are an ear to listen for you to make sure that you are doing what you need to do in order to be successful.

By completing small steps one at a time it increases your chances of achieving the overall goal tremendously.

When we take a step back and enjoy the process to let the results come later it’s less overwhelming because we are doing one thing at a time rather than multiple at the same time. Think of us as an accountability coach 🙂

Fitness Strategy Session

What can you expect during a health/lifestyle coaching session with one of us?

There is so much more that goes into achieving overall wellness than just physical health. Wellness components include Stress Maintenance, Healthy Sleep Patterns, Physical Activity, Nutritional Health, Financial Health, Social Health, Psychological Health and Emotional Health.

If any of you are having a hard time achieving overall wellness there is a good chance that one of these could be throwing you off balance. During your initial health coaching consultation we will ask you questions to see what your overall lifestyle looks like then help you to create small goals to turn those unhealthy habits into healthy habits.

As your guides we are able to give you basic nutrition information, a comprehensive workout plan, do regular body composition measurements and consult you through your fitness journey. This way you have someone to hold you accountable through the process and be your motivation to keep going.

Sometimes changing your habits can be difficult, but when you have a health coach, you increase your success rate for being able to live a healthier, higher quality life.

Since joining Performance, I have made huge gains. The process of recovering from knee surgery has been much easier because of the expertise of the Performance staff in helping me get back to full strength. I would recommend this gym to anyone.*

Training over the last few years at Performance has been the best health decision I have ever made.  Leslie, my current trainer, keeps me on track to stay fit and strong, makes our sessions interesting and challenging, and is always positive, even when I have setbacks.*

“I am a competitive cyclist and have been in personal training at Performance for 6 years. The best part about the trainers is that they know our medical histories very well.  Leslie is great at modifying a training session specifically to each individual person’s limitations so as to avoid injury.”*
