Why Health Coaching?

Our staff of wellness coaches and personal trainers work directly with individuals on a wide variety of growth areas, including fitness, nutrition, weight-loss, and stress management. Additionally, we have skilled executive wellness coaches available for corporate leaders. One-on-one consultations can be conducted in person at your job site or over the telephone. Both methods provide real results for improved employee and corporate health.

Stress Management Coaching

We teach stress management skills as a package of healthy overall life management habits. Like our other programs, stress management begins with an assessment of participants’ current stress levels and the qualifying causes. We offer guidelines for reducing some stressors, and teach a wide variety of skills to help alleviate others. We help employees return to a state of feeling competent, relaxed, and productive. Some of the broader categories we cover include:

  • Healthy Lifestyle Habits: solid nutrition, regular exercise, and enough rest.
  • Healthy Thinking: balanced, positive thinking with effective problem-solving.
  • Fun & Relaxation: positive socialization, relaxation, and rejuvenation.
  • Stretching & Exercise: physical activity is one of the most effective stress prevention strategies available.
  • Appropriate Support: establishing the emotional support needed.

Nutrition Coaching

Our staff of professional diet and nutrition consultants help assess, educate, and inform your staff about specific ways that anyone can improve their daily eating habits. Custom nutrition plans are developed after one-on-one discussions, with individualized recommendations. Some of the topics we cover include:

  • Eating well at work
  • Wholesome meals and snacks
  • Shopping for healthy meals on a budget
  • Analyzing the current diet and establishing objectives

  • Avoiding health-depleting faux-food
  • Preparing healthy meals quickly
