Life Coaching

Sometimes life becomes overwhelming and complicated.  It’s nice to know you have someone who can lend an ear as you work things out and get back on track.  That’s what a life coach is for.  He can perhaps make you look at life in a different way, a more positive way.

A life coach does not tell you how to live your life or fix your problems.

  • He simply asks questions.
  • You provide the answers.
  • If a question makes you think about a problem in a different way, perhaps now you have a different way of solving it.

A life coach makes you think.  A life coach will also make you accountable.

  • If you say you are going to do something to fix a problem, he will ask you how it’s going, what stopping you, what are the obstacles.
  • He’s your coach to make sure you do what you say needs to be done.
  • He wants you to be successful.
  • He’s on your side.

A life coach is also your cheerleader.

  • He encourages you to keep going and shares your victories when you overcome obstacles and break new ground.
  • He’s your biggest fan.

Who needs life coaching?  Anybody. Everybody.

The greatest athletes in the world all have coaches.  The greatest teams all have coaches.  In order to be great you need a coach.  Games may be challenging but what can be more challenging than life?  Life has more curve balls, more tackles, more competitors, and more obstacles than any game.  Why must we face it alone?  Those that choose to rise above these challenges admit to themselves that they can do better if they have a coach.  They can get to their goal faster if they have a coach.  They can reach goals they only dreamed about if they have a coach.

To secure a coach you need to make a commitment; to him and to yourself.  You need to make a commitment to be open and truthful.  You need to meet regularly and be on time.  You need to make a financial commitment also.

About Islands Fitness Center

Create a healthy lifestyleIslands Fitness is a family run fitness center owned and operated by Gordon and Amy Barth.  Their love of the Hawaiian Islands inspired the name and theme of the facility.  A water fountain and wall sized mural of palm trees and a beach greets each member as they walk through the door.  Your Hawaiian shirts are welcome here.

The music playing throughout the facility is usually classic oldies from the 50’, 60’s, and 70’s.  Classic rock is mixed into round things out.  The music is always upbeat and cheerful.

Islands Fitness is an adult facility with average ages running for the 30’s all the way to the 80’s. There is no daycare center, there are no mirrors on the walls, and there is no rap music.  Islands Fitness is not your typical fitness center.  The atmosphere is intimate. It’s social.  It’s friendly…..and it’s clean.

How to Find The Right Fitness Center

The best way to determine which local fitness center is best for you is to visit the facility.  Calling facilities and asking for prices without visiting the centers is like comparing apples to oranges.  You must first see for yourself what you are getting for your monthly dues.

Step 1: Call the facility to arrange a tour.

If you just drop in and expect a tour, many times the instructors are performing orientations, teaching classes, or meeting one on one with existing members.  In order to get 100% of an instructor’s time and attention, call to arrange a tour.  There’s absolutely no obligation. [Read more…]
