Starting a clients fat loss journey properly is vital to their long term success. The most foundational part of fat loss is great sleep. As everything from repair, hormonal balance, mood and fat loss are influenced by deep sleep.
Improving sleep can improve a clients energy, hormonal profile, decrease inflammation and rebalance many systems that are offline. So many organs get repaired at night. By improving their function, clients see more sustainable fat loss. As their body works better. Not because it was pushed harder.
As a coach, it would be ideal to start by improving sleep hygiene. As poor sleep habits tends to be where sleep issues begin. Working on their habits will allow the big 3 hormones to regulate quicker. Cortisol, insulin and growth hormone are all affected by how well clients sleep. The more these big 3 hormones are in balance, the faster people see results
As coaches, knowing if your client is sleeping well is very important. As there can be different issues with why their sleep is poor. They may not fall asleep in 5 minutes or they may wake up multiple times in the night. All of these signs tell you the coach, that their sleep is poor.
Most plans fail because of lack of ignoring clients poor sleep. Or taking their word for it that they sleep well. Investigation is necessary!
