What is a Holistic Lifestyle Coach?

Could a holistic life coach help you reach your goals this year?

Most people have goals that they would like to achieve, yet they have not met their goals for a variety of reasons. Receiving general life coaching is a great way to work through unmet goals. Holistic life coaching is specifically useful for health-related goals. These include feeling better overall, increasing energy, improving sleep quality, finding the motivation to eat healthily and exercise, reducing stress, and more.

What a Holistic Life Coach Is

A Holistic Lifestyle Coach is essentially a Life Coach. But rather than focusing on helping people meet their career or other goals, they help them meet their wellness goals. This type of coaching is all about goal-setting and goal-reaching. Yet specifically for health-and-mindset-related goals.

According to C.H.E.K. Institute, a holistic life coach can “look at the underlying causes of disease and stress and consider the body as a “system of systems.” Through training, coaches learn how disease and stress are preventable through healthy eating habits, lifestyle management and appropriate types of exercise.” Most chronic diseases take years to develop. Which is why holistic life coaches promote a healthy lifestyle. Holistic life coaches do not promote “quick fixes” because they know these tricks never work long term. But rather instead, they use proven principles which build a strong foundation of health.

So, if you want to eat better, exercise more, reduce stress in your life, or any other wellness self-improvement you are seeking, a holistic life coach can help with that.

What a Holistic Life Coach is NOT

A Holistic Life Coach is not a weight-loss coach. They focus on getting people healthier, not skinnier. If you need to lose weight, then that will likely happen as well when you work with a coach. But this type of work is not focused on simply losing weight for vanity’s sake. Holistic Life Coaches work with you to make you feel good, not necessarily to just look good.

They are also not personal trainers. A Holistic Life Coach will assess your workout schedule and determine if you need more or less of certain kinds of movement. Through the C.H.E.K. program, coaches also learn about what Paul Chek calls “work-in” exercise (as opposed to “working out”) and can go over these. But they cannot correct form or create workout programs.

Finally, a Holistic Life Coach is not a doctor. They cannot prescribe medications or supplements or provide a diagnosis. But they can work with you to make lifestyle changes needed to support your health.
