what is a health coach
Well according to the National Consortium for Credentialing Health & Wellness Coaches, Health and Wellness Coaches partner with clients seeking self-directed, lasting changes, aligned with their values, which promote health and wellness and, thereby, enhance well-being. In the course of their work health and wellness coaches display unconditional positive regard for their clients and a belief in their capacity for change, and honoring that each client is an expert on his or her life, while ensuring that all interactions are respectful and non-judgmental.
"Say to him: 'Long life to you! Good health to you and your household! And good health to all that is yours!
1 Samuel 25:6 (NIV)
Tonya White is an incredibly dynamic person -- homeschooling mom, businesswoman, friend and health coach. If you want someone to give you that extra encouragement, the inspiration you need to put your life in order, Tonya should be your go-to person. Smart, kind, driven to help others, I'm so blessed to call her "friend." Oh, and her go sugar-free campaign last year was so inspirational I've permanently lost 8 lbs! Every time I went for a piece of cake or a candy bar, I could envision Tonya telling me, "No, girlfriend. You do NOT need that. Get a piece of fruit already. You can do this!"
