Clients may come to you holding on to old habits of success that may or may not be healthy for them. It’s our job as coaches to improve their relationship with food as they heal and transform. Not the opposite.
Even though most coaching programs have a time limit. We need to remember that many of the tools clients learn will be with them for life. So teaching them better perspectives and sustainable habits is vital for not just immediate success. But lifetime success.
One of the most important things to be aware of are the different seasons that clients go through. If we can remember this, we can also adjust how we coach clients. Which will allow them to stay successful in their journey.
Giving structure, but not being too specific, Focusing on basic weekend goals like (hydration, protein and movement), varying the 80/20 rule and breaking the day into quarters are 4 simple ways to help clients stay closer to their nutrition plan long term.
Wanting both sides of the coin can be tricky. So if clients aren’t happy with how fast results are coming, make sure to get them to reevaluate what matters most to them.
Most importantly, people, their lives and goals can change. So checking in with them to see if anything has changed along the way is key. This allows you to again modify not only their plan but how you coach and help them. Which will equal SUCCESS for them and you!
