Although fitness training is a component of wellness coaching, this emerging profession goes much deeper. For the client who is committed to change, the wellness coach can be a powerful motivational tool. Coaches deal with a wide range of quality-of-life issues, including general health and wellness, work/life balance and relationships. Through a combination of instruction and mentoring, wellness coaches help their clients set goals, define a plan of action, and maintain the mindset and discipline to see their program through to the end.
