Personal Wellness Coaching

You can get personalized Wellness Coaching on it's own, hand-in-hand with Run Coaching or alongside a Training Group for implementing healthy lifestyle changes. It has been described as a process that “unlocks a person’s potential to maximize their own performance”. At it's simplest, wellness coaches help people improve their health and well-being, in an extremely personalized way. Usually people come to a wellness coach because they are struggling with something that is hurting their well-being: stress, weight loss, life balance or energy.

Often, people have tried lots of quick fixes and find they don’t stick. Wellness coaches are skilled at getting people to a place where it sticks where their new lifestyles become embedded into who they are. Engaging with a health coach provides the support and accountability needed to reach goals, reduce disease risk, and improve health behaviors.

As a true Wellness Coach, my services are geared toward helping clients achieve health and wellness goals through developing individualized paths based on the evidence-based, proven principles of Wellcoaches, considered the gold-standard, using the American College of Sports Medicine approved methods of Wellness Coaching.

A few of the many areas you might choose to work with me as your Wellness Coach are:

Weight Change

Improving Nutrition

Managing Stress

Implementing Exercise Programs

Meeting Performance Goals

Expanding Positive Thinking and Self-Motivation

Bettering Sleep Habits

Increasing Sense of Purpose and Self-Esteem

I take a whole-person centered approach, and will work with you, motivate you and provide the guidance you need to succeed and achieve your wellness goals. You will gain the holistic, healthy lifestyle you deserve!
