get healthy together

Couples who get healthy together enjoy longer, happier lives. By supporting each other in health goals, you can create a stronger partnership, now and in the future.

Achieving optimal health & wellness

Let’s face it. When you are in a relationship with someone and have differing health goals, it can make it very challenging to stick to your goals.  

Why not get healthy together? There are ways in which your relationship can actually help you both make healthier choices in nutrition, emotional wellness, sleep quality, weight management and stress management.

Beginning July, I will be working exclusively with just five couples in a unique, not-found-elsewhere program.

Through an engaging, compassionate and accountable process, each couple will cast their mutual and individual vision for their individual and joint health. In this program, you’ll develop a customized health and wellness plan. With the support and guidance of your Wellness Guide, you’ll be empowered to take the steps needed to reach that vision.

The story behind Better Together

Apply here by June 15, 2022

As I have coached many individuals, a recurrent theme arose – my clients who adopted healthy behaviors with their partner were more likely to get and stay healthy.

In fact, when scientists at the National Institute on Aging looked at how likely people were to quit smoking, start being active, or lose weight in relation to what their partner did, they found that people were more successful in swapping unhealthy habits for better ones if their partner made a change as well.

Partners who get healthy together have stronger, longer-lasting relationship bonds. It’s more than just health – it’s love and connection and a shared set of goals.
