We believe health coaching is a key element to wellness, with an additional accountability partner to help you meet your goals.
Everyone needs a coach.
Health coaches typically work with clients to develop personalized plans that address their unique needs and goals, and may provide guidance and support on areas such as exercise, nutrition, stress management, and sleep. They may also help clients to navigate the healthcare system, understand their medical conditions and treatments, and make informed decisions about their health.
Overall, the role of a health coach is to empower individuals to take an active role in their own health and well-being, and to provide them with the tools and support they need to make positive changes in their lives.

How can a health or wellness coach help?
Assessing lifestyle: A health coach will typically begin by assessing a client’s health and lifestyle habits. They may ask questions about diet, exercise, sleep, stress, and other factors that can impact health.
Setting goals: Based on the assessment, a health coach will work with their client to set specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART) goals for their health.
Developing personalized plans: A health coach will create a personalized plan for their client based on their goals, lifestyle, and preferences. This may include recommendations for changes in diet, exercise, sleep, stress management, and other areas.
Providing education and guidance: A health coach may provide education and guidance on a variety of health topics, including nutrition, exercise, stress management, and self-care. They may also help clients understand medical terminology and navigate the healthcare system.
Offering support and accountability: A health coach will offer ongoing support and accountability to help their clients stay on track with their goals. This may include regular check-ins, goal tracking, and encouragement.
Evaluating progress: A health coach will regularly evaluate their client’s progress and adjust their plan as needed to ensure that they continue to make progress toward their goals.
