I wonder what it would be like to
Live your life, full of energy and vitality . . .
Be engaged in the activities that you enjoy . . .
Eat foods that are delicious and nutritious . . .
Be productive when you need to be and
able to rest relax when the day’s work is done.
Can you see it? What you are seeing is a life of wellness, holistic, full and fulfilling.
Catching a vision of yourself is the first step on the way to a life focused on wellness. It’s more than simply fitness, though that is part of it. Wellness is more comprehensive and yes, it may take more dedication on your part to achieve it. But you don’t have to do it alone!

How does Wellness Coaching work?
Contact Marcia and she will set up an initial wellness consultation. During that consultation you will create your wellness vision and start to set an action plan in place to achieve that vision. The initial consultation typically takes 60 – 90 minutes.
After that Marcia will meet with you in person or contact you by phone to check in on your progress and document your action steps. Each weekly appointment will last 30-45 minutes giving ample time to ask questions, deal with concerns, inevitable obstacles that arise and solutions. Marcia will help you break down your long-term goal into smaller, achievable steps that enable you to gain confidence in your ability to meet your goals.
Why Wellness Coaching?
While most of us long for better health and well-being, considerable evidence suggests that we’re moving in the opposite direction.
While obesity is a multifactor problem, four factors lead us to unwisely choose quick fixes that don’t last, and they jeopardize our confidence, what psychologists describe as self-efficacy.
- First, there are the demands of everyday life, which have never been greater.
- Second, we face a bewildering array of wellness guidelines, products, and services, making it difficult to create a personal formula.
- Third, there is the challenge of navigating the inevitable obstacles to making changes, including innate resistance and ambivalence.
- Fourth, many of us have histories of repeated failure. Most of us do not believe that we can master our weight and wellness.
Survey Responses from Health Care Professionals:
- Many people are struggling to master health and well-being due to inadequate self-efficacy. – 96% agree
- Many people tend to tell themselves in at least one area of wellness something along the lines of – “I can’t change. I’m not in charge. I’m not in control. I’m not the master of my health and well-being (or one area) and I want to be!” – 93% agree
- Highly trained and holistically skilled coaches can help clients address mental health issues (e.g. positive mindset, confidence), related to obesity and other self-destructive health behaviors. – 90% agree
Wellness coaching, was created to help us master health and well-being, be done with quick fixes, and make changes that last.
Professional coaches have long been recognized for their skills in helping athletes, sports teams, and executives perform at their best. Now, professional wellness coaches are helping change the lives of people seeking lasting improvement in their health and well-being.
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. We know intuitively what it takes to get well, and that knowledge is now supported by plenty of evidence. But knowledge is not enough. Only one in twenty adults engage in five top health behaviors: regular exercise, healthful fat intake, five servings of fruits and vegetables daily, moderate drinking, and non-smoking.
We need to learn a new life skill – how to develop a personal blueprint for well-being, and become confident in our ability to implement it.
We need a professional competency designed to help people master wellness, which is closely aligned with the new era of consumer-directed healthcare. This is the first time in human history where being the master of one’s health, and making health investments daily, is poised to be a dominant societal theme, just as smoking cessation was two decades ago, or sacrificing for the greater good was during World Wars I and II. The work of Wellcoaches is laying a robust foundation for this new profession, starting with the training of 1,100 wellness coaches and the support of coaching services for thousands of clients over the past four years. The health and fitness industry has been working hard to help us – never before have there been more experts, assessments, resources, guidelines, technology, books, web tools, and beautiful high-tech facilities. The wellness revolution is underway.
