So you’re determined to lose weight, get in shape or just achieve better overall health, but how are you going to do it? Of course, it’s almost as tempting as late night snacking to jump on the latest craze, whether it’s an extreme boot camp regime or the Caveman, nuts and berries-only approach, we want a fast fix (without fasting.) \r\n \r\nWhat gets brushed aside almost every time, and with almost every come-on strong diet, and exercise program is this: a shift in your mental and emotional states. Enter your new Wellness Coach.\r\n \r\nYes, wellness is a vast area covering the mind, body, spirit and philosophy from the East to the West. So what is it really and why should you enlist a coach in your journey?\r\n \r\nJane Diamond, the resident Certified Wellcoach at The Rittenhouse Spa & Club – Hair by Paul Labrecque, comes from a 360 perspective that covers nutrition, fitness, weight loss, stress management, mind/body medicine, lifestyle, and chronic disease. She takes from all of these disciplines and creates a personalized, holistic strategy that is tailored around specific goals.\r\n \r\nDiamond works with clients both individuals and those managers overseeing corporate wellness, over an 8-week period in which time she assess specific goals, applies a “science-based methodology” to achieve them and to unhinge mental programming that’s standing in the way of success. \r\n \r\nNot unlike a Life Coach, Diamond also provides tools that improve self-leadership skills such as discipline, willpower and self-esteem, and strategies for addressing setbacks.\r\n \r\nWith any provider in the health, wellness or medical fields, always be sure they are certified and give us a call or an email to set up an initial assessment here at our Spa.
