Online health coaching

Frequently asked questions (and answers!)

Accountability from a holistic health coach is a key factor in achieving the results you are after. A great holistic health practitioner will help you figure out what pieces are missing in your personal puzzle of optimal health. Then hold you accountable for finding them!

Taking a step beyond personal training, a holistic health practitioner will empower YOU to take control of your health and fitness. You’ll gain knowledge, skills and inspiration to make the decisions that will benefit you for the rest of your life.

Choosing an online fitness coach like me helps you to use your time effectively. You can meet me for a video call from your home, office, or wherever you may be in the world!

You are unique and special so there are no generic plans or programs here. Every person is unique in their responses to exercise and food intake. As an experienced online holistic health coach with 15+ years industry experience, I will provide you with a personalised plan every step of the way.

I understand the challenges of thriving in both career and family life. I am looking forward to helping you take the next step towards achieving your personal health and fitness goals.

You and I are probably right for each other if you:

  • Are a busy person who appreciates that travelling to and from sessions requires time that you’d rather save for other things.
  • Travel regularly and/or want to stay accountable to being healthy and fit, wherever you are in the world.
  • Are self-motivated to the extent that you can and will complete your own physical training sessions as agreed.
  • Understand that an online fitness coach is different to a ‘virtual personal trainer’ or ‘online personal trainer’. Sessions with me are not typically ‘exercise’ sessions unless for example you are working on an exercise technique where you require my feedback. However we will do a little bit of vitrual personal training when we carry out fitness tests to benchmark and measure your progress. And if you love the idea of having a virtual fitness trainer to push and motivate you through your physical training sessions I can certainly offer that as an additional service!
  • Are dedicated to treating online* fitness training and coaching sessions as you would face-to-face sessions (i.e. showing up/being available as agreed!)
  • Recognise that health is multi-factorial and that you may need to look at many different areas of your life to achieve a health and wellbeing goal. This may include things like spending less time with people who are dragging you down, minimising clutter and activities to create space for health and fitness, or perhaps even doing less exercise to achieve improved fitness!
  • Are frustrated by the mainstream medical system in as much as you hate getting rushed through, brushed off or being unable to make progress towards improving your health. I will take a holistic and integrative approach, allowing you to follow advice from your primary care physician, whilst at the same time taking a very in-depth look at your overall lifestyle.
  • Are a parent struggling with lack of time and energy to look after yourself. As a mother myself, I am well aware of the challenge to stay fit and healthy while juggling parental challenges and responsibilities.

*Any pre-agreed communication medium; e.g. FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Skype
