Do you feel like you are working hard and doing all the right things when it comes to exercise and nutrition, but you still aren’t seeing the results you want? Often times this is the case because we lack accountability. This is where a health coach (nutrition and / or personal trainer) comes in.
As humans we are all very different, so there cannot be a one size fits all approach for everyone when it comes to nutrition and exercise, but working with a fitness, nutrition and wellness professional can help determine what is best for you.
Here are 5 signs that you may benefit from having a coach of your own.
- You feel like you are doing the right things, but still feel off, or that your results aren't happening the way you think they should. - This is the perfect opportunity to reach out for help from a coach. As coaches it is our job to dig deeper, ask the right questions and hold you accountable. Too often I hear people say “I don’t eat that much sugar” or “I work out a lot” when in reality, when tracked, it is far different then the person perceives it.
- You have a hard time holding yourself accountable. - Whether you are giving in too often to cravings, letting weekends take over or not staying motivated to exercise and eat right a coach can help you create a structured routine that will keep you consistently working towards your goals. Regular check ins and monitoring from a coach will make this so much easier.
- You want to make a change, but you aren’t sure where to begin. There is so much information out there, so to someone that doesn't have a lot of knowledge or experience understanding where to begin or what would work best for them may seem impossible. By working with a coach you will be able to determine what works best for you to help you reach your goals.
- You have tried a bunch of different diets and ways to lose weight and nothing has worked. By working with a coach you will get back to the basics of why, focusing on your specific goals which will guide the path that is chosen. Losing weight isn't just about eating right, there are lots of lifestyle factors that come into play that a coach can help you address and manage alongside eating well.
- You want a personalized approach to fitness and nutrition and want to work with someone who understands your specific needs. Finding a coach that takes the time to really learn about who you are and what you need is important for success.
A lot of us think we know what needs to be done, and some of us actually do, but what it all comes down to is a personalized approach that focuses on your goals and a system that holds you accountable. Even the strongest willed and educated individuals need help with accountability. If any of these 5 things ring true with you, it may be time to make a change and have a coach help you do that.
