The Health Coach is responsible for motivating you and supporting you to achieve your goals of well-being and personal development. He will be the person who will help you during moments of demotivation during your training hours. One of his tasks is to know when to push and when to release the pressure to get the best of yourself; he will give you back your confidence at the right time.
Health Coach has your health in his hands, it’s up to you to communicate correctly with him if you have a particular health problem, but once communicated, the personal trainer will take your health check into account and adapt his training sessions accordingly. He will also have to take into consideration the training ground and will have to train you in a 100% safe place.
The personal trainer must know his field inside out, unfortunately in the USA there are still many unqualified Health coaches in the profession and not trained for it. The personal trainer must be competent and know which part of the body to target for a particular goal, to work in a particular way for another.
The personal trainer will share with you his experience of physical activity. If you are looking for a specific area, for example, martial arts, running, weightlifting, etc. Look for a coach specializing in this type of field, a coach must know a little about all sports fields, but will never be specialized everywhere.
He must help you progress towards your goals in the most optimum way possible. The personal trainer will have to establish his sessions according to the objectives set with him and yourself. The attention, of course, the coach is not responsible for your deviations!!
Private coaching sessions are also an excellent time to learn new movements and discover many things that you do not know in which you will have to progress in terms of technique, power, speed. The personal trainer is responsible for teaching you knew things, both of course, on the movements, but also on the precise way to perform such or such an already known movement.
The Health Coach must understand his client to know when to put a little pressure to push yourself when to release for recovery. He must understand what type of person is in front of him and how to make him work best to achieve his goals.
Offer free coaching sessions
Should we offer a first coaching session free of charge with the idea of engaging the person in the continuation of the coaching? I think successful coaches don’t need to offer free coaching. Do you know a lot of professions that offer free services? If I think that free coaching is not desirable, it is not for lack of generosity, but because it is not effective. Now if you want to offer your services for free, solidarity coaching exists in many associations.
If you want to do a free health coach, it’s not to show how good you are; but because it’s part of your marketing strategy. And if you demonstrate your talents in front of an audience, for example, it is to establish contacts and recommendations. What you are looking for, with or without free coaching; is a commitment from your prospects to start a process of personal development or growth, step by step.
So, ask yourself how free coaching can serve your strategy? Do you think the restaurateur will win customers by offering some free tickets? For most people, what is free means nothing? Your job is to show the menu and explain how delicious each dish can be. What you want is that your customer agrees to buy and enjoy the complete meal that you offer, with starter, main course and dessert, so that he can feast while eating healthy, acquire new food hygiene, the pleasure of living in better health. You are as a coach like a great chef capable of preparing dishes adapted to individual tastes; but you are not the content of the plates. And you can be the best cook in the world; some won’t enjoy your dishes if you haven’t bothered to explain; what types of customers are likely to enjoy your dishes.
Describe your skills in the most congruent way possible. But only offer a free health coach if it fits into a contact gathering strategy. Lots of people are willing to try out anything free, not knowing what it is for. Your time is precious, so put it to good use. Some won’t like your food if you haven’t bothered to explain; what types of customers are likely to like your food. Describe your skills in the most congruent way possible; but only offer free coaching if it fits into a contact gathering strategy. Lots of people are willing to try out anything free, not knowing what it is for. Your time is precious, so put it to good use.
