Trained health and wellness coaches can help you achieve greater physical and mental wellbeing through goal setting, accountability, and support—and with an individualized plan that works for you.
What is health and wellness coaching?
Health and wellness coaching is a customized approach to establishing healthy habits. A health coach can help you identify and plan your health goals, and provide support and accountability as you move toward those goals in a way that works best for you.
Health and wellness coaching can help you achieve healthy habits in areas like:
- Regular physical activity
- Eating habits
- Managing and reducing stress
- Work-life balance
- Reducing or quitting smoking
- Overall energy

Group Health-Coaching Classes
Community Wellness at MIT Medical offers group health-coaching classes. “Creating the Healthy Life You Want” is offered seven times a year. The class provides opportunities for reflection and help with breaking down your goals into realistic, incremental weekly experiments. Participation is limited, and each class member chooses the goals he or she wants to work on.
Health and wellness coaching should not be used in place of a visit, call, consultation, or advice from a physician, therapist, or other qualified healthcare provider.
