When it comes to losing weight, many people feel that they should be able to lose weight on their own. So they first embark on doing it their way, which often includes cutting back on calories and/or following a “new diet” they’ve heard about.
Unfortunately, even with the best intentions, most people who try to go it alone usually quit their own program when it starts to get hard or when they don’t see the needle on the scale move in the direction they had hoped.
But studies done by the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine and published by the the Harvard Medical School show that statistically speaking, losing weight with a qualified Coach results in greater sustainable weight loss than without a coach.
Here are 4 reasons why having a qualified experienced Weight Loss Coach helps you lose weight faster and easier:
REASON #1: It’s Better When It’s Personal
Weight loss is personal. It’s not a one-size-fits-all solution. A weight loss coach should help to tailor your program to fit your needs. They are there to help you through your challenges, avoid pitfalls, and course correct you to your success on your weight-loss journey.
At Genesis Personal Fitness, our weight loss coaches take the time to get to know you—your food preferences, your physical activity needs, your lifestyle, and your personality. When you find yourself up against a weight loss challenge, they can be an amazing resource that help you stay on track toward your goal. Having someone that is not only a “good coach”, but someone who considers your personal needs, can set the foundation for success.
REASON #2: Better Together – It’s Science
A study published in the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine showed that people who are trying to lose weight are much more successful when they work one-on-one with a personal coach. In fact, the study’s results indicate that weight loss was better both initially and in the long-term even 2 years later!
That’s why at Genesis Personal Fitness, part of our “secret success sauce” when it comes to losing weight is in our 1-on-1 personal coaching. This KEY ingredient makes losing weight easier and faster. Having a personal coach who, understands how to test and reset your metabolism, knows how you’re exercising, and understands the obstacles and struggles you face in the weight loss process is a huge benefit to eliminating failure and creating total success.
Knowing you have to answer to your weight loss coach regarding your food choices helps you make better choices. This accountability is critical for sustainable weight loss. Let’s face it sometimes it’s hard to maintain the discipline necessary to achieve the goals we have in life such as weight loss. A good Weight Loss coach is not there to reprimand you but to encourage you. They are your partner who is there to celebrate the smallest victories and help you stick to your plan when life gets a little hectic. And when you hit those troubling “bumps in the road”, you can always lean on your weight loss coach to add in new new food ideas, healthy recipes and other ideas to ensure you accomplish your goals in a way that works best for you.
REASON #4: They focus a Lifestyle Change not just weight loss
We all know that yo-yo dieting is not a long-term solution, it’s about making a lifestyle change. The best weight loss coach is trained to focus on your health and well-being, as well as help you create new habits and lifestyle changes that you can follow for years to come in order to maintain your results. During your one-on-one coaching sessions, our Genesis Weight Loss Coaches walk you through every process, so you understand why and how it’s important to lose body fat, change your diet, and create a healthier way of living.
If It’s Good Enough For The Pros, Isn’t It Good Enough For You?
I’d like to leave you with this thought…
Have you ever wondered how professional athletes, actors, actresses, dancers, and alike are able to perform the way they do and look the way they do too? The short answer is… they DON’T go it alone. They know and are very good at… what they’re good at. But like you, they don’t know everything they need to know to achieve their look and performance level. That’s why they all have coaches. And you deserve to have one too!
Just imagine if you had your own personal coach to help you achieve the success you deserve in losing weight just like you’ve achieved so much in many other aspects of your life. And that’s exactly why our Genesis Weight Loss Programs are so successful for our clients. It truly is the “personal touch” that can make all of the difference.
