Even the most dedicated and enthusiastic people can use the guidance and motivation of a nutrition coach. Here at Prevail, even our coaches have coaches — a testament to the power a nutrition coach can have on maintaining your motivation.

If you’re looking to make a few incremental lifestyle changes in the coming year, an accountability coach, nutrition coach or personal trainer can guide you to success. What’s best is that you don’t have to commit to one type of practice. Whether you’re an outdoors fanatic, looking to get back into running, considering yoga or don’t know where to get started, that’s totally okay. All you need to do is to commit to consistency. A consistent effort toward both your nutrition and exercise routine is a surefire way to build better habits in 2022. The best part is that you don’t need to do it alone!

At Prevail, we live and breathe by the idea that lifelong health and fitness is all about building new habits. Here’s everything you should know as you start your new year, new nutrition journey with Prevail.

Don’t Discount Nutrition

Prevail coaches emphasize the role that nutrition plays in not only bolstering your exercise experience but its importance in helping you reach your overall fitness goals. While many people will turn to a diet come January 1, we like to reiterate that, “the best diet for healthy living isn’t a diet at all.” A nutrition coach can help you make the appropriate food choices for your fitness goals. Whether you’re looking to increase muscle mass, work on a leaner physique or simply make healthier food choices, our coaches will be by your side at every point in your fitness journey. You won’t be able to workout as hard if you’re not eating the right foods and portions to fuel your body. If you’ve fallen off the fitness bandwagon before, a lack of nutritional support may have been a big contributing factor.

We can also help keep you motivated with accountability coaching. We can also help keep you motivated with accountability coaching. There’s nothing wrong with trying to accomplish your goals on your own, but having professional support on the days, or even weeks, when your goals feel hard to obtain can make all the difference to your overall progress.

Healthy Living Becomes Second Nature

At Prevail, we understand that nutrition isn’t one size fits all. A nutrition coach will take into consideration your level of activity and help you determine what the best meals are to help you reach your goals. Our coaches are knowledgeable and flexible. When you chat with your nutrition coach, either at our gym in Tacoma or online, they’ll take into consideration what you already enjoy eating. Proper nutrition is about moderation and you don’t need to completely give up your favorite foods in order to see the results that you desire. A nutrition coach will assist you in building sustainable eating habits like cooking for yourself, reading food labels properly and balancing proteins, carbs and fats for a well-rounded experience with food.

Working in tandem with your nutrition coach to find healthier alternatives to your favorite dishes makes hitting your fitness goals much more attainable. Similarly, if you have dietary restrictions, working with a nutrition coach can ensure that you’re getting the nutrients you need to build muscle and burn fat in a healthy way.

A Prevail nutrition coach will help you understand and experience nutrition as a way of life, instead of thinking of food as a diet plan. This means your eating plan will most likely be no less effective than other diets you’ve tried, making it more sustainable. By working with a coach, you’ll learn a lot about how your body works and how to use food to maximize your results. By making small, incremental, habitual changes, healthy living will become second nature.

Trust The Process

Nutrition coaches are there to support positive behavior change and have undergone training to do so. You can think of your nutrition coach as a mentor of sorts. They aren’t there to make decisions for you, but rather teach you over time how to make better decisions for yourself. Our team has the knowledge, expertise and passion to guide you through a personalized nutrition plan. Prevail coaches have been completely entrenched in the process of building better habits and much like you they’ve probably encountered similar roadblocks. Learning to navigate hurdles and keep on track is what makes an experienced coach such a desirable component of your health and wellness journey. The Prevail team has decades of experience under their belts and are there to guide you through small, attainable incremental changes.
