You may be wondering what exactly is health coaching and how can it help you.
Health coaching is not a new concept; in fact, it has been around in some form for dozens of years and has gained in popularity in the last few decades driven by the need to assist those suffering from various health conditions, the desire of the public to take control of their health and wellbeing, and insurance companies working to keep people well.
Whether in the form of receiving advice from professionals such as physicians, counselors, nurses, nurse practitioners, dieticians, nutritionists, and other health professionals, health coaching will continue to rise. As you read this page, the reasons will become abundantly clear that we have a horrible health crisis on our hands.
The facts are clear that lifestyle-related diseases have become a worldwide epidemic. This phenomenon is driven by many factors, including a lack of regular exercise, stress, more sedentary work, processed foods, and other poor eating habits.
Our lifestyle choices drive lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.
In the last twenty-five years, there has been a remarkable increase in obesity rates, with half of the adults in the United States now overweight or obese.
From 1999-2000 through 2017-2018, the prevalence of obesity increased from 30.5% to 42.4%, and the prevalence of severe obesity increased from 4.7% to 9.2%.
Globally, an estimated 26% of the world's population(972 million people) has hypertension, and the prevalence is expected to increase to 29% by 2025, driven largely by increases in economically developing nations.
As a primary contributor to heart disease and stroke, the first and third leading causes of death worldwide, respectively, high blood pressure was the top modifiable risk factor for disability life-years lost worldwide in 2013.
On average, someone dies of cardiovascular disease(CVD)every 37 seconds in the U.S. There are 2,353 deaths from CVD each day, based on 2017 data.
On average, someone in the U.S. has a stroke every 40 seconds. There are about 795,000 new or recurring stokes each year.
Diabetes continues to rise and is linked to heart disease, along with obesity. The statistics are startling.
Over 34 million Americans --- just over 1 in 10---have diabetes.
More than 88 million Americans---approximately 1 in 3 have prediabetes.
Diabetes is increasing at an alarming rate among young people under the age of 20 years old.
The key to preventing diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and obesity is education and behavioral changes.
The greatest tragedy is that these diseases are mostly preventable.
In summary, a healthy lifestyle is one of the most important factors in staying healthy and avoiding diseases.
My simple formula for a more abundant life is to eat well, exercise daily, stay connected, reduce stress levels, get adequate sleep, and surround yourself with positive people who love and encourage you.

I understand your pain.

PROVEN METHODS TO YOUR BEST LIFE
What exactly is life coaching? Life coaching is a method counseling that facilitates positive changes to help the individual reach desired goals.
These goals can be personal or professional. The life coach acts as a facilitator helping the client find answers that give them the best opportunity to reach their goals.
At Protimefit, we utilize motivational interviewing, which is one of the most effective forms of counseling.
This method works to encourage self-dialogue and critical thinking without fear of judgment by the client.
Our life coaching program also includes self-guided materials to help the client find clarity of thought. These materials help the client dig deep into the past to uncover what could hinder progress toward the desired objectives.
The program will give insights into thinking, motivations, fears, self-esteem, and trauma.
This program does not take mental health professionals' place, and we will recommend clinical intervention if the client's concerns go beyond our scope of practice.
