Personal Training is back! Employee Wellness will provide on-site personal training to help with your fitness needs.
Training sessions will be offered in your choice of 4 or 6-week programs. You will meet with our trainer either once or twice a week.
As we are in the process of redesigning our Personal Training program, our trainer will be experimenting with different formats and will attempt to accommodate all participant needs. You are encouraged to provide constructive feedback during and at the end of your sessions that will allow this program to flourish.

Wellness coaching can help those seeking ways to improve their overall well-being. A wellness coach provides support, guidance, and accountability as you make changes to your lifestyle.
During your session, your wellness coach will help you to identify your strengths, set realistic goals, develop an action plan, and track your progress. While the coach is here to facilitate conversation, it is ultimately the client who is responsible for taking action and making changes. Coaching can be beneficial for those who are overwhelmed or feel stuck when it comes to developing healthy behaviors.
