Has anyone asked for a health coach from TSFL, received an email stating a coach will contact you in 5 days and then never hear anything from them again? I received an email on 7/24/10 saying my coach would contact me within 5 days......and nothing.

Makes me feel unwanted.

Seriously, all kidding aside, it does make me question whether a coach is really worth it..

Yes, I have but there are some here on the boards you could probably search in threads!..

Same thing happened to me. then I saw a coach post something about having 8000 coaches. and me being me- lol, stated something about not receiving anthying as stated by medifast but there are that many coaches???? then searched around and found one myself and love her!!!!!!..

Comment #2

My coach is great but I met her in town through a friend. I like having a coach and a meeting to attend when I want to...

Comment #3

I would suggest finding a local coach for one on one extra support. I know that is a personal opinion but I like having my coach close by and she holds weekly support groups and stuff like that...

Comment #4

I would really like the extra support because I don't have much support at home. I don't really know how to go about finding a coach nearby to be honest..

I'm sorry to hear this. I wish I could say I hadn't heard that before. There's definitely something wrong with the coach assignment process! Please don't let this impact your desire to work with a coach. We're not all part of the assignment process (it's reserved for "Certified Health Coaches", not "Independent Health Coaches"). You can approach any of us via email and request us as a coach. Find one you connect with, or a local one if you're lucky enough to have one near you..

I think support is key to success on this journey. If there's anything I can do to help, please let me know. I have LOTS of information and motivational documents that I send out to my clients to help keep them focused and moving forward. If you have questions or concerns that I can help you with, just email me!.

I'm wishing you well on your journey....

Peace & good health!.

Are you comfortable saying where you live? Maybe someone here lives nearby and can then recommend a coach in that area?..

Comment #7

I called TSFL and asked for a list of Health Coaches in my area since I had read several people have 'local' coaches. They said they do not give out a list, but that I could send an email to and they would assign me a coach that met my needs (local if that is a request). I am in the Houston/Katy area, so I am sure there are Health coaches in this area. I have spoken to a few Health Coaches that seem really great but are not in my area.

For those who work with a Health Coach, is being local really a big help? Or does online/email/phone work for you?.

Thanks!!..

For me online/email/phone works well....

Imho you really only need the coach to get going.... once you are following the program, you won't need the coach to much till you are heading into transition and maintenance....

They can help you stay on track....

Mine is on the west coast.... i'm in upstate ny.

I can see how having a local one could benefit in some ways...

For example i'm helping someone local out, and have done things with her like food swaps.... foods she doesnt like for trade for foods I don't like.... etc...

Wow I was beginning to think I was the only one that this has happened to! I went through the same thing (signed up through TSFL, got a response, and then nothing). Then I sent another email and TSFL said they would look into it. This past Sunday my coach finally emailed me. I sent a response with several questions because 3 weeks in to this I haven't really lost the weight I was hoping to and I STILL haven't heard back from them.

I would hate to bombard a health coach that I saw on the discussion board, so what would be the best way to approach one myself?..

Comment #10

There is a flaw in the system. The company is not up to date in their coach assignments and I have heard many coaches never get word of a new client till months later. In most cases it's the system. I have been told they are working on it..

My coach never contacted me and would not answer my messages. I sought out my own and she lived cross country from me and it worked out great.

You need to decide if you want face to face contact or if phone and email are fine..

You can interview them first after all they are working for you so make sure you are a good match.

There are advantges to having a coach like accountability, discounts and referral bonuses...

Comment #11

I would just PM one that you feel would suit your needs, and ask if they are taking on new clients. Then go from there...
