Wellness Coaching from 3-Fitness & Wellness
What is Wellness?
While Health is the absence of illness, injury, or disease, Wellness is the pursuit and/or state of individually determined optimal health.
A good plan today is better than a great plan tomorrow.
George S. Patton
A wellness-oriented lifestyle encourages you to adopt habits and behaviors that promote better health and an improved quality of life. It also involves the recognition that you have physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs, with each dimension being necessary for optimal levels of functioning.
Wellness is a positive approach to living - an approach that emphasizes the whole person. It is the integration of the body, mind, and spirit; and the appreciation that everything you do, think, feel, and believe has an impact on your state of health.
What is Coaching?
Coaching is a process of effective and meaningful dialog that leads toward the identification, pursuit, and realization of one's goals.
The Wellness Coach focuses on acceptance, guidance, purpose, spirit, planning, goals, opportunities, and motivation. The client is the focus of the action.
The Wellness Coach does NOT analyze, offer advice, provide prescription, make recommendations, strategize, teach, educate, or provide therapy.
How Wellness Coaching Works
You should be willing to commit to 3 months of wellness coaching; this has been showed repeatedly to be the best time frame for achieving medium range goals. Coaching is usually done via the telephone, at a mutually agreed upon time, once a week -- though in-person coaching is also available.
After you sign up for coaching:
- You will complete a well-being assessment (including medical considerations), which I will review and which we will discuss in the first coaching session.
- Our first session will be 60-90 minutes, where you will identify your priorities and develop a personal wellness plan including a wellness vision, three month goals and the first week's goals.
- In the subsequent 45-60 minute weekly coaching sessions, we will review the progress toward your vision and goals, explore and resolve any pressing issues, and agree on the next week's goals.
- By the end of three months, you can expect to reach more than 70% of your three-month goals and feel energized and confident to embark on new 3-month goals, either on your own or continuing with me as your Wellness Coach.
