Change from Coaching to Consulting Addresses Fears That Lawyers Have That Coaching Is A Sign of Weakness And Most Accurately Describes The Business
WASHINGTON, March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Leventhal Weight Loss Incorporated, http://www.attorneyweightloss.com, today announced it is becoming the first in the nation executive weight loss consulting service for attorneys by an attorney. It had previously been the first in the nation executive weight loss coaching service for attorneys by an attorney.
"In recent weeks, we have received a lot of press and have seen a substantial increase in business. The vast majority of these attorneys want advice, suggestions, hints, ideas, tips, and guidance on how to lose weight. This is what we have been providing our existing clientele, and this is what we will provide our new clients," said Leventhal Weight Loss Incorporated founder and president Mark Leventhal, Esq., who himself lost over 50 pounds in five months while practicing international trade law in a Washington, D.C. law firm and who has since run nine marathons. "Coaches do not provide advice or offer guidance. We do. So, we believe calling ourselves a consulting business -- rather than a coaching business -- most accurately describes our services. Besides, I have been personally told by numerous lawyers that they feel that going to a 'coach' is a sign of weakness, while going to a 'consultant' is not. It is nonsensical for any attorney to think going to Leventhal Weight Loss Incorporated is a sign of weakness, so for that reason, too, we believe that the change from coaching to consulting is most appropriate," added Leventhal.
"Coaching is new to most attorneys. They think going to a coach is like going to a therapist. I'm not a therapist. I am an attorney. What I do is work with attorneys to ensure that they achieve the weight loss results they seek. I provide advice in a particular area of expertise -- how to lose weight while practicing law -- and by definition, this makes me a consultant," stated Leventhal.
Leventhal Weight Loss Incorporated takes a traditional approach to weight loss. It believes losing weight comes down to calories in -- calories out, and that there are no "magic pills" or quick fixes to getting long lasting permanent results. Its clients have come from some of the leading law firms in the United States including Reed Smith LLP; Ballard Spahr Andrews & Ingersoll LLP; Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP; Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP; and Kirkland & Ellis LLP.
