That is a great question Joanne! As a holistic wellness coach for women and children, I use the “whole-person” approach which includes physical, emotional, spiritual, occupational, intellectual, environmental, and social aspects. Every new clients fills out a customized Wheel of Life assessment to determine how happy they are with different parts of their life. Then, we set goals using a Goals-Action-Plan chart that I have created. Once we see where we are and where we want to go, we conduct a fitness assessment and determine the best “eating” and “moving” regimen for this particular client.
Creating the personalized positive eating and moving program for my clients in the beginning is the easiest part of my job. Once they have the initial program down, my ultimate goal (other than tweaking the program and creating new ones as needed) is to keep them motivated by sending them a Daily Challenge and doing a random check-in between sessions.
