Who OneSource Wellness Coaching Serves?

I see clients who range a spectrum of health and fitness levels. I work with athletes and weekend warriors; Moms to marathoners and power lifters to power walkers. However, in light of the declining health of America, a large portion of my client population come to me with several risk factors and on average two prescribed medications.

Many want to lose weight and tone muscle. This is a common request and frequent programming. However, for many, they wish to regain their health in order to eliminate the need for the use of prescription drugs. In most cases, we can succeed in doing so and I am proud to be able to be a part of this journey.

Many research studies have proven the efficacy of physical conditioning and fitness programming for the support of medical management for many diseases including:

  1. Diabetes (Type I & II)
  2. COPD
  3. Chronic Muscle Pain
  4. Depression
  5. Obesity
  6. Sarcopenia
  7. Coronary Artery Disease
  8. Hypertension
  9. Osteoporosis
  10. Neuromuscular disorders
  11. Postural Imbalances
  12. Athletic Injury

There are a number of populations which we can subcategorize. Aside from weight loss and muscle tone, I have classes and workshops structured to meet the needs of special populations for whom regular fitness training may not be an option. These type of classes are for people with (low) back pain, persons with more than a few pounds to lose or morbidly obese, event training athletes, a Youth Summer Transformation Program and Mature Clientele.

What equipment do participants need?

I will provide equipment for training during all classes. The exception being a yoga mat or exercise mat to perform floor exercises and stretching. There may be situations for workshops and specialty classes in which chairs may be needed. Otherwise, participants would be dressed and ready for physical activity. In a typical class, we will use nothing but body weight, resistance bands, kettle bells, battle ropes, dumbbells, weight plates and sandbags.

Will insurance pay for training?

Third party reimbursement is unpredictable and very difficult. I am not a licensed medical provider as defined by insurance company standards. Therefore, I establish a comfortable private plan with clients and support the client’s efforts to obtain reimbursement. We have often found that a strong referral from a physician with an appropriate diagnosis has assisted clients in attaining reimbursement as payers begin to realize that our services are appropriate and cost effective.

What can new clients expect to receive?

Each new participant will receive the following:

  • Fitness Consultation and sample workout before committing to purchase
  • The Balancing Body Chemistry Diet and Detox Guide
  • Personalized Meal Planner and Fit For Life Consultation
  • Health History Intake and Biomarker Measurements
  • Cardiovascular Training Guide
  • Periodic measures to gauge success
  • Monthly newsletter

All assessments are adapted from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the National Academy of Sport Science (NASM).
