What is a Wellness Coach?

Health and Wellness Coaches are trained professionals who partner with clients to enhance their well-being through self-directed health behavior change. This process involves goal setting, support, and monitoring according to the client’s vision for a healthier lifestyle. The coach will help with behaviors such as physical activity, nutrition, sleep, stress management, tobacco cessation, and more. Put simply, the goal of a wellness coach is to help their clients overcome obstacles and achieve positive, sustainable lifestyle behavioral changes.
