10 Reasons Why You Should Have Your Own Personal Health Coach
Have you ever asked yourself whether or not you need a coach? If so, here are a few reasons why a Personal Health Coach can be a good idea if you want to get results. It will also help you decide whether you need one or not. Not everyone needs a coach and coaching is not for everyone.
1. Consistency and accountability!
I will begin with these 2 because they are essential to get lasting results. You will see your Personal Coach weekly, or maybe even more often and they will make sure you get things done to get results. And even if you make mistakes they will be there to guide you back on track.
Your success is your coach’s success.
Personally I keep in touch with each of my clients in between the sessions, asking them how their week is going, if they did the routine we have chosen for them to do, what they struggles are and so on.
And those who are committed to transform their lives do the work, make time and make it possible and they do get what they seek.
2. Trusted source of information
We do our research. We study, test and learn. You have access to all that information, so you don’t have to waste time on reading everything on the internet.
Furthermore, there are things you cannot learn from a book.
3. Saves you time
It takes time to come up with exercises and routines to get the best results. If, for example, you do the same routine at some point you have to change it or you will stop making any progress and you might actually regress.
See my blog on the adaptation process to better understand what I am talking about.
4. Gets results
There is a reason athletes have coaches. As athletes, although we know a lot about our sport and we can actually coach others, we still need coaches. Because you cannot push yourself harder than someone else can push you.
5. Gets results….safe
It is important not to compromise aesthetics for a healthy body. What I mean is that too many of us focus on weight loss at our body’s expense.
Remember that weight will always go up and down, but once you damage your body it takes years to heal. In some cases certain injuries never heal completely.
6. Out of your comfort zone
You can only take yourself out of the comfort zone so far. And if you are not taken out of your comfort zone you will never get results.
If what you do doesn’t make you grow stop doing it, there’s no point doing it.

7. Attention and care
Having a Personal Coach it’s…well…personal. You and your coach will get to know each other very well.
Your sessions together are not limited to the 1h-1h30min a week but you talk in between your sessions. That’s how you get long lasting results, by having someone who cares guiding you.
Your coach will create a training program that will take into account your goals and aspirations but also who you are as a person.
8. Saves you money
You may think not, particularly if it’s an expensive coach, however your personal coach can teach you how to care for your body inside and out.
They coach you smart, keeping you away from injuries and they can give you tools you will be using for a lifetime, that will save you money on physiotherapy sessions, diets and all sorts of things you really don’t need once you establish strong foundations.
My Sensei once told me that when someone asks for a certain amount of money, which seems a lot, that means there is always something more than the eye can see. In some cases this is spot on.
9. After coaching resources
You personal coach may have online resources so when you finish your personal coaching together you have everything ready for you to continue by yourself.
For example I give my clients lifetime access to the UWF Academy which follows 12 weeks of weekly training, food discipline, technique guides, meditations and more.
And they can do these programs over and over and over again. This is very valuable as they can do things by themselves and not always depend on someone else.
10. Motivation and support
When the tough gets tough many people give up, they reset and then have to start all over again. Remember, consistency is key to make progress and get results. Those who have their Personal Coach are less likely to give up.
There is someone there behind you to push you forwards and walk the journey with you. Of course you can cancel your sessions but will you? I am pretty sure you will not.
When you give up you reset and have to start all over again, if you continue no matter how difficult it gets that’s how you get the results. And how do you keep going when you want to stop? Yep, that’s right, you have a Personal Coach before you even get to that stage.
