3 Things To Look For

When Choosing A Health Coach

There’s a much better chance of your success when you have a coach!
I’m reminded of when I first started My Pilates Time and invested in a business coach. I also remember my first teaching job at a school and the mentor (the teacher in the room next door) who guided me through that first challenging year! – And of course my first pilates mentor, who inspired me and opened my eyes to the connectedness of the body and the joy of movement.

These coaches have had remarkable impacts on my life, and I’m sure there are teachers or coaches that come to your mind who have helped you over the years.


There are 3 things I think you should look for when choosing to invest in a health and wellness coach.

  1. The second thing to ask yourself  is, “Can they teach what they know?”

    To know something and to teach something are two very different things. Can you recall a time during your school life when you had no idea what the teacher was trying to convey? No doubt he or she had a good knowledge of the topic and understood the content of the lesson. But for some reason, the way they communicated didn’t connect with you.

    We all learn differently, and respond to instruction and motivating cues in various ways. I have a friend who loves going to the gym where her personal trainer yells at her to “Dig deeper!” That wouldn’t work for me, and knowing how I am motivated helped me find the pilates coach that did suit me.

    I’ve found that some women need visual cues, others need touch, while some prefer anatomical directions, others like understanding the reason behind each exercise.

If you answered yes, to all of these 3 questions, then it’s likely that you have found the coach for you!
