Hey, I Really Like Spark Coach!

Saturday, August 11, 2012

My friend, HANAHSCLOUDY talks about Spark Coach in her latest blog. She said at first she wondered if Spark Coach would be redundant, but she's found that it helped her get her MOJO back!

I was also wondering if Spark Coach was redundant. Instead I found Spark Coach makes me more accountable. It also helps me to see the good things I'm doing. I never feel as though I'm good enough and I don't handle compliments well, so I never give myself enough credit for doing well. I'm very hard on myself, however, it really does help to have someone tell me that I'm doing a good job and Spark Coach does that. Oh, don't get me wrong, my Spark friends tell me that, too and positive feedback is always welcome! I believe it's something we all need.

I have learned how to use the Spark People site, so I don't need much help with that, but at times I have found that all of the information can be overwhelming. There is so much information about exercise that I occasionally find it contradictory and confusing and when I've asked questions on the community message board I get even more confused. Perhaps with Spark Coach I'll be able to get a more definitive answer since I will be able to ask an expert. I like that Spark Coach directs you to specific articles that complement the video of the day because it gives me a clearer picture and it's not so overwhelming.

I'm thinking of continuing to use Spark Coach! I never thought I'd say that. Spark People is such a positive place to be and I've been able to build a solid foundation of good habits. Spark Coach goes even further and takes that positive attitude and provides a positive environment that helps to reinforce those habits. Of course, now I have to wonder, what happens in 12 weeks? Do you start at the beginning all over again? Just what is the next level, because I started in May 2012 with 100 pounds to lose and repeating the first three months over and over might have me tearing my hair out!

    I've been wondering about Spark Coach. I'm within just a few pounds of goal weight, so initially my thought was that I didn't need it. However, being at the right weight and being as strong & fit as I want to be are completely different. Perhaps SP Coach would push me on the fitness, too?

    Have a great day!

    Good for you ,Linda. What will you do after 12 weeks? You will gain so much knowledge and motivation, you will just know what to do. It is good to get expert advice that can help you on your journey.If it gives you enthusiasm and motivation, go for it.Message boards are just what that person did to get their results, not the same for everybody. emoticon

    I just joined Spark Coach today... It gave me a little boost too, but it's just the first day. I hope it turns out to be something awesome... this site is great already. I really hope I decide Spark Coach is worth the money. Time will tell.

    I've just begun to use spark coach. I had the same reservations you've expressed and like you have been very pleasantly surprised. There is a LOT of information out there and correlating it can be a challenge. What I really like about sparkcoach is they break it down to doable goals for each day. I find this so much easier to get my head around.
