What is a health coach?

When you hear the phrase “health coach” what comes to mind? Do you picture a skinny person lecturing you about all the wrong things you are eating and then instructing you to eat only fruits and veggies? Or do you imagine a person with a chiseled physique who is going to prescribe hours of intense workouts?  

The reality is that a health coach is a real person just like you. The difference is they have completed training and passed an exam to be certified to teach others how to adopt a healthier lifestyle.  A health coach is not a dietitian or a fitness trainer per se.  They are not focused on one area of health but rather the whole picture. A health coach is a motivator, educator, and your biggest cheerleader. Coaches are passionate about what they do and provide their clients with sustainable techniques and tips to improve their overall well-being. This involves a whole body approach and encompasses lifestyle, exercise, attitude, and nutrition. As a certified health coach, I would love to help you achieve your wellness goals, like having more energy, sleeping better, improving your diet, preventing disease, and much more! At Eudaimonia, total wellness is stressed and my wish is for all of my clients to live a life full of health, happiness, and prosperity.
