Why work with a health coach?
It’s easy for people to become overwhelmed while looking to make major health changes. From losing weight to addressing chronic conditions or transforming a fitness routine, it is helpful to have a coach. Leveraging the expert guidance and personal support of a coach can be a powerful investment to make for your health.
What are the benefits of working with a health coach?
A health coach guides the overarching process. From clarifying the client’s vision to defining strategies for maintaining success, a coach provides support throughout. Armed with holistic knowledge of how fitness, nutrition and lifestyle influence well-being, a health coach works with clients to design an inclusive, flexible and responsive plan to move daily practices toward healthy choices.
Over the last 50 years, we have seen a significant rise in autoimmune disease, food and allergies, diabetes and obesity. Health coaches step in and help where other healthcare practitioners are unable. We provide our clients patients with specific goals to work toward, recipes and diet guidelines, exercises and lifestyle management tools to help reduce the stress that could be contributing to disease or illness. Health coaches are able to follow up with clients on a regular, periodic basis to help them stay on track and answer any questions or concerns. Just like a strength coach, we can help people improve their quality of life through education and support.
Doctors and their patients aren’t the only ones recognizing the assets of a health coach. Gyms, insurance companies, corporate wellness programs, university athletic departments and even professional sports teams are seeking out peer health coaches to supplement their client and athlete programs. Health coaches are sought out as mentors to help guide, empower, support and motivate individuals to implement and sustain lifestyle and behavioural changes in order to achieve health, fitness and athletic goals.
Why the Primal health model?
Primal Health Coaching is the singular coaching certification founded in scientifically validated ancestral health principles. The context for this model, the acclaimed Primal Blueprint, supports maximum vitality and well-being through the timeless integration of strategies across a broad spectrum of lifestyle dimensions, including nutrition, fitness, sleep, stress management, sun, play and enrichment.
The goal is straightforward even while the biological mechanisms are complex: normalize hormonal responses by adapting evolutionary patterns for modern day lifestyles and effect desirable change in gene expression patterns toward optimum functioning. The result is a reasonable plan that leaves plenty of room for individual design and preference.
