Do You Need a Wellness Coach?

When it comes to diet, exercise and overall good health, we can’t always go it alone—and a wellness coach might be the perfect partner. Could a wellness coach be right for you?

A wellness coach works to help you identify and develop a comprehensive plan for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. A good wellness coach will give you the motivation and the tools you need to achieve your physical health goals—and balance them with your other goals. What’s more, your wellness coach should help you on a physical and emotional level regarding your desire to:

  • Lose weight
  • Change your eating habits
  • Quit smoking
  • Refocus on your goals in life
  • Hone in on your ambitions and skills
  • Reduce stress
  • Generally become a healthier person

Wellness coaching is on the rise. According to Annabelle Robertson’s article in WebMD and a recent survey by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), the use of “educated and experienced fitness professionals” (which includes wellness coaches and personal trainers) now comprises the fastest-growing fitness trend worldwide.

But is finding a wellness coach worth the investment? Research and anecdotal information show that it is. Most fitness fans who find—and keep—a wellness coach or trainer exercise and eat better over time. Plus, they make better health choices overall, which tend to have “a boomerang effect” on their lifestyle.

To find a trainer or wellness coach in your area, contact your local Gym Source for recommendations of professional trainers in your area.
