A coach is someone who understands the process of the way forward and acts as a guide but does not walk the walk for you. A coach encourages you to discover your own reasons for achieving your goals and helps you uncover your own motivation and passion; a coach ignites the fire within you. A trainer is an expert in the subject matter. A trainer knows the facts and can give a lecture on them if necessary. Trainer recommendations are usually specific and prescriptive, based on the most widely accepted research.
Dr. Parmele acts as both a coach and a trainer. Her expertise in the fields of functional lifestyle medicine, nutrition, and exercise physiology, coupled with her ability to perform advanced laboratory testing, puts her in a unique position to help you accomplish your health goals, while coaching you through the behavior change that is needed to maintain these new lifestyle habits.
Professional coaches have long been recognized for their skills in helping athletes and executives perform at their best. Now professional wellness coaches are helping people reach their best health and wellbeing.
1. You provide background information through multiple questionnaires so that you and your coach are well-informed on the key issues, including medical considerations.
2. During the first 75-90 minute coaching session, you identify your priorities and develop a personal wellness plan including a vision, three month goals and the first steps.
3. In subsequent 60 minute coaching sessions each week, month, or quarter, you and your coach review the progress toward your vision and goals, explore and resolve the most pressing issues, learn something new, and then agree on a set of goals for the following week. You will enjoy plenty of ah-ha insights along the way.
4. By the end of three months, you can expect to reach more than 70% of your three-month goals and feel energized and confident to embark on new areas with or without your coach.
