Health and Wellness Coaches are partners and facilitators. They empower individuals and groups to develop and achieve their self-determined health and wellness goals based on the client’s own desires and consistent with the prescribed by healthcare providers treatment plans. Using a client-centered approach, the health and wellness coaches support clients in the mobilization of client’s insight, internal personal strengths, and external resources as well as in the development of self-management strategies, goals, actions steps, and accountability toward making healthy and sustainable lifestyle and behavioral changes. Health and wellness coaches do not diagnose health conditions, prescribe treatments, or provide psychological therapy. Health and wellness coaches may provide expert guidance in the areas they hold active, nationally recognized credentials and offer resources from nationally recognized authorities.

Benefits for children and young people

Overweight children are more likely to turn into overweight adults who are often inactive and face a huge range of health problems. Being active not only keeps children and young people fit and healthy, but provides all kinds of social, emotional and intellectual benefits. Research shows that children doing regular physical activity can have:

  • improved emotional wellbeing - helps young children feel more confident, happy, and relaxed, with improved self-esteem and self-concept
  • improved health - encourages healthy growth and development of children's bodies and similar benefits of physically active adults
  • improved mental health - improves concentration skills and ability to manage anxiety and stress
  • enhanced social skills - develops skills such as cooperation and teamwork, and a great way to have fun, meet new people and develop friendships
  • increased capacity for learning and productivity - active children are generally more motivated and better organized than children who are inactive, and physical activity has direct links to improved learning outcomes
  • a more positive school environment - active students are generally less aggressive and experience fewer discipline problems
  • a reduction in anti-social behavior - active children are less likely to smoke, use illicit drugs or be involved in criminal activity.
