The Real Benefits Of A Health Coach

Investing in your health can feel intimidating. Specifically, hiring someone to help you lose weight can feel scary, and maybe even questionable. Is it worth it? Will I get along with them? Will it really be any different than how things are now?

We may be a little biased, but we can answer all those questions for you now: yes, yes and yes. Studies have shown that health coaching plays a huge part in increasing overall quality of life, as well as lowering depressive symptoms and stress levels.

So, what exactly is a health coach?

A health coach is an “expert on human behavior, motivation and health. They are change agents who help their clients set and achieve health goals and build new habits,” according to the Kresser Institute. At Fitmate, our coaches take on those same principles.


When you’re on a journey to lose weight, there are a lot of factors to consider. Eating well, working out, managing time, staying on track with goals, keeping yourself motivated, and more. If you’ve ever tried losing weight before, you know it can be difficult to remain focused on your goals. With a Fitmate Coach, staying on track becomes more manageable and attainable. Why?


1. Accountability

When you don’t want to go to the gym, when you want to press snooze, when you want that third slice of chocolate pie, when the motivation wears off and you can’t imagine taking one more step. That’s when you need someone to tell you to keep going, to help you find a solution and to meet you where you’re at with no judgment. A coach holds you accountable when you need it most so that you don’t give up, you stay on track and achieve your goals.

2. Realtime Support

Our coaches are there for you 24/7 via messenger, that way you can reach them whenever you need them. You never know when you’ll find yourself tempted to stray from your nutrition plan or skip a workout entirely, and having someone to talk you through next steps is key to staying successful. In addition to constant access to your coach, you will also have set check-ins to discuss progress, opportunities and goals.

3. Expert Advice

Weight loss is not a one-size-fits-all solution. What works for your neighbor, your friend, or your partner, might not work for you. Everyone is built differently, which is why it’s important to get a customized plan catered to both your specific needs and your body type by a team of experts. With Fitmate, your custom plan includes a nutrition plan and weekly actions to begin taking within one day of meeting with your coach.

These are only three of the countless benefits of working with Fitmate. Get more out of your weight loss journey through the support of our Fitmate Coaches.
