Despite widespread knowledge about the serious risks of unhealthy lifestyles, many people continue bad habits or pursue fad diets that fail. The demands of everyday life make it difficult for individuals to find time to make major changes or navigate through numerous options for wellness “fixes.”  Through her various program options, clients learn new life skills and gain the confidence necessary to take control of their health.

Wellness Five offers a complimentary 30-minute Healthy Habits Audit session to all prospective clients to see if wellness coaching is a good fit. Other services include the Healthy Habits program, a six-month program comprised of individual and group coaching sessions .

Wellness Five also offers Prevent T2,  a lifestyle change, chronic disease prevention program for groups of eight or more. This year-long program includes a curriculum approved by the national Center for Disease Control (CDC) to delay or prevent type 2 diabetes and other chronic illnesses.

  • Seven of the top 10 causes of death in 2014 were chronic diseases. Two of these chronic diseases—heart disease and cancer—together accounted for nearly 46% of all deaths. 80% of delaying or preventing any of the many chronic diseases is through lifestyle changes.

The participants in this program, for the first six months, meet 2-3 times a month for one hour . Over the second six months, participants meet once per month.
