Abstract

The coaching on lifestyle intervention (cool) is a combined lifestyle intervention in the netherlands, in which professional lifestyle coaches counsel adults and children (and/or their parents) who are obese or at high risk of obesity. The cool intervention consists of group and individual sessions addressing the topics of physical activity, dietary behaviours, sleep and stress. Cool has shown to have potential in coaching adult participants towards sustained behavioural change and in connecting professionals in the care sector and the public sector. For children, no definite conclusions can be drawn regarding the potential added value of the lifestyle coach.
