5 Tips for Health Coaching Communication

A fitness and health coach has a responsibility and passion to help clients reach their personal goals, which usually include some form of weight management or loss. Because every client has slightly different goals, a specific starting weight, and a unique fitness profile, it’s paramount to observe and communicate alongside instruction. Educating a person about body mechanics and food groups, for instance, is only the beginning.

So for those in the health coaching business or those aiming to incorporate coaching into their health-driven company, here are five tips for better health coaching communication:

  1. Relate to First Time and Potential Clients – Coaches are people, too. Even a health coach has experienced struggle and achievement, even if not in the specific way a client will. Be approachable and find additional, authentic ways to relate to your clients. In this way you’re already connecting with them, and they will feel more encouragement and respect for you.
  2. Set the Expectations – Once a person has signed up for your fitness program, initiate communication with a detailed schedule or map of what he or she can expect. If your client can visually see the expectation and goals laid out, they are more likely to succeed. Their success is your success.
  3. Provide an FAQ – An FAQ can occur in multiple ways, as simple as open conversation during the first coaching session or as formal as a website page. Either way, listing and addressing these questions helps bring a sense of understanding and trust between you and your client.
  4. Explain the Value – Clients will research alternate coaches and health centers to compare costs and offerings. Don’t back down from the numbers game. Instead, be transparent with clients about where money is going. In other words, explain the value of your business over the competitor. What makes your coaching the best?
  5. Uplift and Encourage – Health coaching has many challenges, but the biggest is arguably to change the mentality of some clients. The best way to begin is by being a mental and emotional coach as well as a physical one. Bolster spirits with encouragement and praise every minor hurdle and success. Most importantly, be sincere.

With these five health coaching tips, you’ll be well on your way to more successful clients and a better reputation in the community. Ultimately, this will lead more potential business to your door.
