  • What education and training do JOYVIAL's executive health coaches have?
    JOYVIAL takes great pride in the quality of coaches we have in our network. Health coaches who are chosen for you due to your desire to improve areas related to nutrition (e.g. weight management, food cravings, digestion, etc) have been certified by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition®, the largest nutrition school in the world. Health coaches working with you to focus on areas unrelated to nutrition may also be certified by wellcoaches®.
  • Why are JOYVIAL's executive health coaches so effective?
    Bio-individuality: Each JOYVIAL executive health coach values the concept of bio-individuality meaning that there isn't one 'diet', or one type of physical activity, or in general one way of doing things, that fits all. You have a unique background, culture, DNA, and life circumstances that all need to be considered when helping you reach your goals. Holistic approach: Rather than treating your symptoms, we aim to solve for the root-cause of your discomfort. Let’s take the example of a headache…treating the symptoms (the headache) often implies getting medication to cover it up. In a holistic approach we however ask ‘why’ you have those symptoms, aiming to discover the root-cause (stress, sugar, etc.). Once you reduce/remove the trigger you also won’t have the headache anymore. Coaching approach: Using a true coaching approach means your executive health coach will ask you questions that will allows you to become more in tune with your body, your needs, and your unique hurdles standing in the way of you reaching your wellness goal, ultimately leading you to making healthier lifestyle choices on your own. Tools & Techniques: Your JOYVIAL executive health coach has received extensive education and real-world experience to address your challenges. You will receive tools and learn techniques that once implemented will create positive change in your life. Accountability: In between sessions your executive health coach will check in with you to ensure your questions are answered and you stay on track.
  • Why should I work with a JOYVIAL health coach vs. someone else?
    Health coaching is not a regulated field , meaning that anybody, regardless of training and education could call themselves a health coach. That’s why you are going to love working with JOYVIAL. Besides being laser focused on only adding health coaches to the team who have received the right training and have proven to apply these techniques effectively, we are proud to continuously expand our network with coaches who specialize in different areas of health and wellness. Are you a busy mom trying to succeed in your career, be the guiding light in your children’s lives and feel the sizzle in your marriage again? JOYVIAL has the right executive health coach for you. Are you struggling with digestion, bloating, or weight gain? We have an executive health coach who specialized in this. Do you find yourself mindlessly eating, craving sweet or salty snacks? We have a coach for you. Whatever your unique situation is, JOYVIAL has a health coach who is passionate and experienced in helping you overcome the obstacles holding you back from living your healthiest, most JOYful life.
  • What progress can I expect?
    Each person is different and much depends on where you started, what your goals are, and your openness and attention to creating positive changes in your life. What’s so great about health coaching (when done right) is that you’ll learn how to apply the coaching techniques yourself, and many do continue on their own as their time with JOYVIAL comes to an end. Others value the accountability and outside perspective their executive health coach has given them so much that they choose to continue their journey with their coach (or another one).
  • What’s the difference between a therapist and a health coach?
    Generally speaking therapists tend to help you come to peace with situations in your past and present, while your JOYVIAL executive health coach will help you look ahead to reach your vision of you living your healthiest, most JOYful life. Your executive health coach may talk through pain points from your past or present but only to identify hurdles that hinder you from moving forward. One profession will never replace the other and there are seasons in your life where you will benefit from both.
  • What’s the difference between a registered dietitian and a health coach?
    Contrary to a registered dietitian a health coach will not diagnose, treat or take responsibility for bringing about wellness changes in a client's life but rather guide and support the development of and progress towards your personal wellness goals. A JOYVIAL executive health coach will help you become more conscious about your needs and the unique hurdles standing in your way to reach your wellness goal, ultimately leading you to making healthier lifestyle choices again and again.
  • What’s the difference between health coaching and a diet?
    Big difference. For one, diets are estimated to fail 95% of the time over the course of 2 years, meaning that most either gain all their weight back, with some adding even more pounds to the scale. Diets are mostly about restrictions and weight loss, which can be unhealthy if not done correctly. Drinking chemical filled, highly processed protein shakes would be just one example of that. Health coaching is about creating a sustainable, long-term lifestyle change that you will enJOY.
  • Who should NOT work with a JOYVIAL executive health coach?
    You want to lose 10 pounds before your best friend’s wedding in 3 weeks? Then JOYVIAL isn’t for you, as our goal will always be to create sustainable long-term change that you’ll embrace and enjoy, something you simply can’t do overnight. You want to be healthy and happy again but can’t commit to setting aside a little extra time for yourself? Then JOYVIAL isn’t for you. We recognize that you have tons of responsibilities and that a lot of people are dependent on you. But in order for you to start living your healthiest, most JOYful life, you need to start prioritizing your own needs ever so often. Can you do that?
  • Will I be told what to eat? Will I need to eat broccoli and kale…yuk!
    No. To clarify, health coaching is a partnership between you and your coach. To achieve your goals, your executive health coach will offer ideas and suggestions. Sometimes these changes will appear small to you, others will stretch you, but key is, you are always in charge how fast you want to move and what you commit to implementing.
  • I live in California, North Dakota, Florida, ________. Do you have a health coach for me?"
    Yes! Our health coaching sessions are done over the phone or via video conference so no matter where you are, we'll find a time that matches your and your coach's calendar.
  • I’m worried I’m going to fail. Is that possible?
    You can’t fail…unless you don’t show up or you are unwilling to try out new habits. By simply having greater awareness of your current habits and knowing the triggers that lead to those, you will automatically start making better choices in your day to day.
