What to Look for in a Quality Coach

Just because a fitness coach (in-person or online) claims to be a flexible dieting believer does not automatically make him or her a good coach.


There are many other variables beyond simply “I don’t restrict my clients’ food choices” that go into a successful coaching relationship. Below are just a few things to keep in mind:


Customization: does my coach provide me with a program that is design specially for me and my needs? Does she take into consideration my likes and dislikes, my availability, my history and any other limitations?


Communication: does my coach get back to me in a timely manner? Does she fully answer my questions or simply blow me off with one-word responses? Does she truly care about my well being and my health?


Adjustments: when I speak up about some facet of the program not working well for me, does my coach listen and make adjustments accordingly, or does she simply tell me to suck it up? Does she set appropriate boundaries with recognizing red flags and knowing when to hit the brakes with my fitness goals (for example, when binge eating incidences increase due to calories dropping too low)?
