How Coaching Works

Coaching FAQ's 

Barbie Young

“I just got done working with a Priority Health Coach that has been extremely helpful and encouraging.  Her name is Amy K.-Sr. Health Coach-Wellness.  This is a great benefit to us GV employees and would encourage anyone to partner up with one of these health coaches.  I have worked with Amy for the past year (on and off) and have learned so many healthy eating tips and ways to be more active”.

–Barbie Young, Academic Coordinator- Anthropology Department


"With the help of my Health Coach I have been able to set goals and reach them. I am now able to do the things I enjoy. I am back on the racquetball court and by the end of the summer I could ride my bike 7 miles.

-Rosie Blakeslee, Systems Analyst

"Having someone that I check in with is helpful. It makes me be more responsible for my behaviors".

"My doctor told me I had to lose 6 pounds at my 3 month diabetes checkup. With the help of my health coach I did that. Now she and I are working at doing another 6 pounds in 3 months."

"My coach and I opted to communicate via weekly emails which works well for me. Having regular contact has helped me stay on course and get back on track when I've had a setback".
