Sincere encouragement can go a long way toward helping someone to stay on track. Providing specific examples can be even more effective than general encouragement. For example, “I remember when you started out you found it hard to climb the stairs now you do repeated stair climbs as part of your workout with ease.”
2. ASK GOOD QUESTIONS
A good life coach doesn’t tell their clients what to do. They ask good questions so their clients understand themselves better, to get clear on what the issues are and from there to make good choices. Asking good questions helps people to think and come up with solutions.
3. BELIEVE IN THEM
Starting to exercise is like any new challenge, at the start we may lack confidence and have doubts about our abilities. Having someone believe in you at these times can be a great support.
4. BE A ROLE MODEL
One of the best ways to support someone to be more active is to model an active healthy lifestyle. What we do speaks much more loudly than what we say. We are all role models to someone so let’s be good ones.
5. SHARE YOURSELF
When you share from your own experience, especially experiences of change and overcoming barriers, you increase empathy, you’re more approachable and you enhance your connection with others.
6. SPEND TIME WITH HIM
We love what we give our time to. By devoting your most precious resource (time) to another individual, you’re showing them that you truly value them and your relationship with them. Invest time in your relationships; it’s what life is made of.
7. ACKNOWLEDGE THEM
You find what you’re looking for. If you look for the best in someone, you will see it. Acknowledge the steps your man is taking to be more active and praise him.
