1. Getting Started


Getting started is as simple as registering your details on the Get Started page of the Get Healthy website, or if you'd prefer, you can call and speak directly to a Get Healthy representative on 1300 806 258.

If you register online, your expert Health Coach will call you within three days to get you started on your Get Healthy journey.

The Get Healthy Service is FREE for NSW residents aged 16 years and older.

2. Your First Call


During your first phone call your Health Coach will spend up to 20 minutes talking to you to about how Get Healthy works and what changes you want to make to be healthier.

Your Health Coach will use this call to ask you about your health. This will include questions about the food you usually eat and how much exercise you do.

It will help your Health Coach if you know how much you weigh and your waist measurement. Your Coach will record these measurements to help keep track of changes.

Measure Up


Not only is waist circumference one of the easiest ways to measure if you are at risk of chronic disease, but the measurement is also relevant no matter what your height or build.

How to measure your waist circumference

1

Measure directly against your skin.

2

Breathe out normally

3

Make sure the tape is snug, without compressing the skin.

4

Measure halfway between your lowest rib and the top of your hip bone, roughly in line with your belly button.

3. Set Your Goals


During your first few months in the program you will have up to 6 one-on-one coaching calls with your Health Coach.

These calls will usually be about 10 - 15 minutes long. During these calls you and your Health Coach will set some health goals that are important to you, and talk about the sorts of things you can do to achieve them.

Over the first few months your Health Coach will plan calls so you can talk about how you are going, give you more ideas about other actions you could try to help meet your goals and keep you on track.

What's Your Goal?


The first step to a healthier you is to create a specific health goal that is important to you.

Your Get Healthy Coach will help you to set and achieve your goals. Getting the support of family, friends, and colleagues will also help.

Your goal may look something like this

Lose 5 kilograms.

Walk for 45min, 4 times a week.

Eat less takeaway foods.

Lose 7cm off waist circumference.

4. Halfway There


Well done! You're about 3 months in and halfway there. By this stage in the program you will be experiencing some exciting results, and should feel like you are on track to achieve your goals.

At the halfway mark your Health Coach will ask again some of the questions from your first phone call about your health, what you eat and how active you are. You will need to check your weight and waist measurement again before this call.

Asking the questions again will help you and your Health Coach find out how much progress you've made towards achieving your goal and if there may be different things you could do. This call will take 15 - 20 minutes.

Keep Motivated

5. Staying On Track


You're now in your last 3 months of coaching. During this time you will receive up to 4 one-on-one coaching calls with your Health Coach.

During these calls your Health Coach will talk you through overcoming any roadblocks to achieving your goals. You're almost there, you can do it!

Finding Solutions

Finding Solutions


No matter how determined we are to make positive changes, it is normal for us to go around the cycle a few times before a behaviour is permanently changed.

How your health coach can help you
1 Your health coach will help you learn from setbacks and strengthen your determination to achieve your health goals.
2 Everyone has setbacks from time to time. It doesn't mean you have failed, and it isn't a permanent barrier to achieving your goals.
