What is Wellness?
There are six dimensions incorporated into Wellness. Move Academy has designed courses that incorporate all of these and feels it is very important to now talk to clients about more than exercise and basic nutrition. They include:
physical: maintaining a sound substantial body through regular exercise, proper nutrition, sleeping well and avoiding harmful habits
intellectual: being able to engage in lively interaction with the world around you, improving and encouraging problem solving, processing and creativity through continued learning: flexing the mind's muscle.
emotional: being aware and comfortable with your own thoughts and feelings, being able to express your thoughts and sensations and absorb those of others.
social: relating, interacting and communicating well with others, being comfortable in your own skin and to be able to contribute and engage in a healthy living environment.
Environmental: a healthy work and living environment free of hazards and focused on conservation of all natural resources, respecting nature and your surroundings, and gaining personal fulfilment from our surroundings.
spiritual: a sense of life that is meaningful and has a purpose, embracing the meta-physical and reaching beyond the physical realm of existence and experiences.
How Does Health, Wellness or Lifestyle Coaching differ from Personal Training, Nutrition Coaching or Therapy?
Just because someone is a trainer, nutritionist of therapist does not mean they are a Wellness, Health or Lifestyle Coach.
We believe clients deserve a unique approach to their own personal Health and Wellness goals and someone to help them attain these goals. Wellness, Health or Lifestyle Coaches learn to work with clients to determine and attain these goals in a more rounded and holistic approach.
A coach begins with the goals in mind and begins with questions around the clients expectations of wellness; what is important and the path the client envisions to achieving their goals. If not certain, a coach can help build these expectations.
A therapist may want to know where the client has been but a Health, Wellness or Lifestyle coach will focus on where the client is going. A Personal Trainer may give you a workout routine and a nutritionist may prescribe an individualised diet. A Health , Wellness, or Lifestyle Coach sees both of these elements as part of the bigger picture of the clients "whole" wellness. You will work with your clients knowing that getting to the goal wont happen all at once, but a little at a time, and that long-lasting results are what matter most.
A Health, Wellness or Lifestyle Coach will work the their client the "whole way" to help define wellness on their own terms
