What is Wellness Coaching?

Best ladies

Wellness coaches are highly credentialed fitness, health and wellness professionals who coach their clients in order to help them improve in the areas of fitness, weight, stress, energy, life satisfaction, health, nutrition and mental and emotional fitness.Coaches apply areas of behavioral psychology, counseling, motivational interviewing, positive psychology, adult learning theory and solution-oriented theory when working with their clients. These methods have proven that working with a wellness coach once a week for a 3 to 6 month time period, allows sufficient time for the client to be successful in changing a behavior.


We all want to feel better, look better and have more energy. Most people know what to do, but they struggle to get there. A coach is there to bridge the gap between “wanting it” and actually “doing it”.
