Benefits of Health Coaching

Coaching and Your Wellness:

“The coaching model is a catalyst for the transformation of the medical model to one where physicians work in partnership with highly-skilled health, fitness, and wellness coaches to help people get fit, eat well, and live life to the fullest. ACSM is collaborating with Wellcoaches to establish the gold standard for coach training and certification in the healthcare field.”
~Jim Whitehead, Executive Vice President, American College of Sports Medicine  


“We want to be well. We yearn to be in control and feel better. We want more energy. But there is an enormous gap between wanting to be well and the everyday reality of living with the mental and physical health penalties of overeating, under-exercising, and having too little down-time.”

“There are two important things we need. First, we need to connect wellness to what we value most. Second, we need to develop a personal wellness plan that is tailored to our circumstances.”

At BodyVision, your Health Coach is trained to:

accept and meet you where you are today
ask you to take charge
guide you in doing the mindful thinking and doing work that builds confidence
help you define a higher purpose for wellness and uncover your natural impulse well
help you tap into your innate fighting spirit
help you set realistic goals
harness the strengths you need to overcome your obstacles
help you view obstacles as opportunities to learn and grow
help you build a support team
inspire and challenge you to go beyond what you would do alone”


Typical results of your program include the following:
Increased self-awareness
Acquisition of new knowledge and skills
Attainment of personal and professional goals
Sustainable behavior change
Increased self-efficacy
Becoming one’s best self”
