Scientific studies show that coaching is a great investment. It increases life satisfaction and professional success and improves relationships.
The Journal of Positive Psychology found that coaching has positive effects on the outcomes of performance/skills, well-being, coping, work attitudes and goal-directed self-regulation.
Also, ongoing coaching is more effective than a one-time intervention. A study showed that while group training with managers increased their productivity by 22%, including a one-on-one, eight-week coaching session for the managers pushed up productivity by 88%.

Weight loss coaching is the process of understanding what you need to do in order to lose weight, figuring out what has been preventing you from losing weight, and generating a concrete playbook that will help you get from your current situation to the new place you want to be in.
People who use weight loss coaching know that they want to lose some weight but don’t know exactly what is the best way to make it happen. Whatever your situation is, a professional weight loss coach can help you with all stages of the process of losing weight.
First, they can help you examine what are the reasons you haven’t been able to lose this weight in the past. Many times we want two conflicting things, and through the process of clarifying which of the two is more important to us, we can gain very important insights about our priorities. A coach can also uncover different beliefs you are holding that have been preventing you from taking the action you have been wanting to take all this time.
Then, they can help you figure out a concrete plan that will advance you towards your perfect weight. A good plan has measurable milestones that are gradually advancing you towards your goal. If the milestones are too hard to achieve, you are likely to get discouraged. If the milestones are too easy, they will not advance you enough towards your goal, which will reduce your motivation to stick to them. Also, a good plan is custom tailored to you. Maybe you need to add more healthy foods, or remove unhealthy ones, reduce portion sizes or increase meal frequency. Whatever it ends up being, the plan will be a function of what has worked for you in the past and what hasn't.
Finally, a good coach will hold you accountable and give you a platform to report on your progress. This is proven to make you more successful at actually sticking to the plan. You are less likely to engage in behaviors that are not helpful if you know that someone will ask you about your progress. Your coach will also be there for you any time you encounter difficulties. They have probably helped others reach the same goals, and know how to deal with any difficulty that may arise along the way.
Scientific studies have shown that coaching is an effective way to lose weight. Researchers from The Miriam Hospital’s Weight Control and Diabetes Research Center in Providence, R.I found that participants working with a health coach lost more than 9 percent of their body weight during a 24-week period.
