The Wellness Workshop is a team of healthcare and fitness professionals using training and experience to guide you to improved health without the excessive costs associated with hospital based services. We are committed to building healthy lives through creative, high quality, affordable wellness services that range from individual health and wellness coaching to group workshops. Our team of experienced Registered Dietitians, Registered Nurses, Certified Personal Trainers and Certified Health Coaches work to assist each client to develop a permanent strategy for good health and then coach them to success through four distinct areas of wellness; Nutrition, Fitness, Health Management, and Quality of Life. Our workshops serve to educate groups of all ages on these topics, and can be customized to address a specific target audience, i.e. Nutrition and Pregnancy.
Each year our population gets less healthy, gains more weight and suffers from preventable diseases and stressors that impact our quality of life in ways it never has before. Furthermore, with an increasing emphasis on value and efficiency in health care delivery, doctors often do not have the time to work with their patient at the level that is needed. We can help you reach the goals your physician has recommended for you, or those you choose on your own, through personalized health and wellness coaching.
