So let’s talk about what many people in health don’t want to talk about…money.
Skills + Clients + Results = Money. It just does. It’s not enough to have just one or the other.
You need to know how to coach (aka skills), people to coach (aka clients) and give them what they desire (results). This is how you make an impact by helping people get healthier and make income doing what you love.
So here is a breakdown of the SKILLS you need and HOW to use those skills to get your clients results (And in turn, grow your business! )
- Weight Loss Coaching: This is the #1 area clients come to fitness & health coaches for. It is A MUST that you have this skill to get your clients REAL fat loss results or you are missing helping your clients and sales
- Personalized Nutrition Programs: We are sooo over “one size fits” all nutrition programs and so are clients. They want individualized programs for their age, lifestyle, tastes, goals and needs. Even in a group setting, this skill is a must
- Coaching Outside of Food & Exercise: Stress, sleep, toxins, hormonal imbalances, gut health issues, food sensitivities, mindset blocks…these are all areas that are holding people back from reaching their goals. By having the skill to offer holistic lifestyle coaching that adds in these areas, your business growth and results will amaze you.
- Uncovering their “Readiness to Change”: Sharing healthy habits and strategies with your clients is one thing but getting your clients to actually DO them is another. If you don’t have this skill, you will be left frustrated from the lack of results
- Activity Coaching: Even if you are not a certified fitness pro, this is a must. Activity coaching can includes walking programs, movement challenges, apps and trackers to move in and outside of the gym
- Being Able to Coach Online or In person: There is HUGE opportunity NOW more than ever to start a successful business in the holistic health coaching industry especially in weight loss & management. Knowing how to offer programs online and in person is a HUGE to allowing you to get paying clients fast
These are the skills that will pay the bills (love a good rhyme!)
