How Does Having an online Nutrition Coach Work?
With so much of our daily lives migrating into the online space, some of these new concepts can feel a little unusual. Nutrition Coaching certainly for some, falls into this category. When I speak with people off-line they often say how they don’t like the idea of only being coached online and how they much prefer a face-to-face experience.
This is perfectly normal and understandable as to why people would want the human connection of a face to face meeting. Wherever possible I always enjoy face-to-face coaching but I also recognise that it can come with its own stumbling blocks.
When I discuss Nutrition Coaching with skeptical individuals they often tell me how they would love the help and support of a coach, yet when I ask them if they had considered working with a coach offline they typically reply they don’t have time.
With commuting to work, family commitments, and of course work schedules, most say fitting in an appointment in person each week, or fortnight is not practical. If I then ask them would a conference call around your current work commitments, or during your lunch break be more manageable and convenient, suddenly the penny can start to drop.
Online coaching is about delivering the otherwise undeliverable to busy people who need help with their diet and lifestyle. Online coaching also enables anyone with an internet connection to work with the professionals who they feel are best placed to help them move forward. Prior to working online, I was geographically restricted to seeing clients in just in my local towns of Walton on Thames and Weybridge, but not anymore.
As a coach, I cannot tell you how exciting it is to know that anybody who needs my help can now simply request a consultation and in less than 24 hours they can be sat in front of me online, and we can be working on a plan to overhaul their life and get them to a happier healthier place.
On my journey as a Coach I have had the privilege of working with people from the other side of the planet, many I have never met “live”. I see this as one of the fundamental benefits of the modern-day connections the internet has given us. Everyone can and will benefit from this approach, why not be an early adopter?
Coaching at Fundamentally FIT
Here at Fundamentally FIT we always offer the option to coach in person if feasible for the individual. However, this never detracts from the powerful coaching we offer online and through our programs.
Typically, clients coach fortnightly with us on an ongoing program. Others will complete a standalone coaching session following the completion of one of our popular, trademark dietary analysis reports. Either way, these are agreed upon at a convenient time to fit around your life and done via a conference call. This can be delivered via Zoom or Teams, allowing face-to-face coaching and the benefit of “screen share” for added coaching materials to be used.
A typical coaching session is broken down into three sections
• Review – How has the past couple of weeks gone and reviewing tasks set by the coach and any weight loss numbers or goals etc.
• The topic of the week – Education and question answering based on the learning material your coach has provided you from our member’s vault of content.
• Personal Specifics – This is where we home in on your specific struggles and challenges for the next week ahead. This might be portion control, tackling a big night out, or creating a plan for traveling for work.
The benefit of having an online Nutrition Coach is the accountability it brings to your goals and lifestyle change. When you can fit in your coaching in such a convenient way it really helps people to focus harder on their goals and stop giving up.
The best lifestyle change is the one you can stick to and if you can’t get to a nutrition coach in person then take the leap of faith and jump online for a whole new experience. Online coaching is about delivering the otherwise undeliverable to busy people who need help with their diet and lifestyle.
If you would like to chat about your goals and health aspirations then why not request a complimentary 20 minute consultation. This can be delivered online or in person if you are local to Walton on Thames.
