5 Reasons To Bring Me on As Your Coach

If you’re reading this, it’s likely that my (possibly excessive) 11-point list on ‘Why Hire a Whole30 Coach’ led you here. The logical next step after deciding to hire a coach is deciding which one to choose. There are lots of us, after all. And this is a totally individual decision. I’m under no illusion that I’ll be the perfect fit for everyone. My prices may be too high for you, or maybe you just don’t like me (hopefully that’s not it).

But I’m writing this post to give you some reasons WHY I just might be the right fit for you, and also help you understand why my packages are priced as they are.

1)     My credentials. I hesitate to list this as number one, because I don’t think this one thing should make or break your decision, but I do think it’s really important. While I am a Whole30 Certified Coach, I’m also a Registered Dietitian (RD) with my Masters in Nutrition and a Certified Personal Trainer through NASM. I’ve also gone through multiple Functional Medicine specific nutrition courses (working on a certification here!) along with continuing education on mindful eating and working on ending dysfunctional relationships with food.

If you want to learn more about the process of becoming a RD, I’m working on a blog post. But short story: I completed 1200 hours of supervised practice (in hospitals, long-term care facilities, dialysis clinics, schools, you name it) in order to qualify to sit for the RD exam. I combined this with 3 years of nutrition/science related courses to help me get my Masters. A lot of work (and student loans!) went into getting me where I am today. For some, the fact that I’m a RD might actually be a deterrent. I hope that’s not the case. Just like not all doctors, nurses, dentists or chiropractors are created equal, the same can be said for dietitians. I am a progressive, forward thinking professional who is up to date on the current research. I’m firmly entrenched in the real food movement, and any glimpse into my social media channels or website will fully support that notion.

2)     My approach. Due to my training in functional medicine, I understand that our bodies are complex and that no one area is the sole driver of overall health. My approach is holistic and multi-faceted in nature. We’ll focus on food, of course, but also on sleep, stress, mindset and movement to help get you the best possible results for your Whole30 and beyond. If you’re working with me in one of my Nutrition Coaching packages, we can dive even deeper into the root cause of your struggles/health issues to get you lasting results.

3)     My experience. I’ve worked with a wide range of individuals, from those who are overall quite healthy but need to make a few tweaks, to those with Type 2 Diabetes or those who are deeply entrenched in compulsive overeating. I’ve helped people lose weight (the sustainable way!) and I’ve helped people maintain their weight. 4+ years of working with clients has given me a good amount of experience to pull from.

4)     I am passionate, both about what I do and about helping you get the BEST possible results. I know how frustrating it can be to navigate the conflicting advice, nutrition studies, and information circling about the interwebs. It’s not fun. I’m here to be your myth-busting companion, your advocate, and your tough love provider.

5)     Nutrition and wellness are my obsession so that they don’t have to be yours. Maybe you’re really into reading the latest nutrition, habit, exercise or sleep studies, but chances are you’re not. That’s why I’m here! To help break down the information in easy to digest tidbits that you can then apply in your own life.

And if you’re not ready to commit to bringing me on as your coach or it’s just not in your budget right now, I offer a wide array of free resources and content for you to peruse at your leisure. I post regularly on Instagram (@sam.p_the_rd) and Facebook (Mindful Bites by Sam P the RD) and also here on my blog. I have a newsletter that I send out on a bi-weekly or monthly basis (just depends how much info I’ve got for you) and a free pre-and-post workout resource that gets emailed to you when you sign up for my email list. I encourage you to take advantage of all of this, and if you find you still have questions or want additional support, I’m here to help.
