Attitudes about food and health are influenced by our upbringing and our environment.

Many adults struggle to adopt healthy behaviors due to lessons learned during their formative years.

Health Risk Assessments identify individual risk factors, but many adults are genuinely confused about how to live a healthier lifestyle.

They need a coach.

Wellness Coaches are change partners. They educate and motivate individual employees, helping them to understand their health risks and adopt healthy behaviors. Working by phone or in person, coaches help employees set reasonable health goals and develop action plans. Wellness coaches provide ongoing support and accountability... which helps employees assume personal responsibility for their health.

Wellness Coaching is surprisingly affordable.

"I worked with the wellness coach at Mercy for 12+ weeks. It was very hard to get started because I never liked exercising. I dropped my weight, blood pressure, BMI, total cholesterol and triglycerides, all without medication. My cholesterol has dropped from 276 to 187. I am now committed to changing my life so I can live longer and feel better."

Tammy, a high school nurse
