The Ithaca College Mind, Body, Me (MBM) wellness program focuses on you: the employee, and works to help you identify and move towards your personal health and wellness goals. Our wellness program is open for all benefits-eligible faculty and staff to join and includes a variety of wellness features. One great feature of our program includes FREE Health Coaching!

A health coach can assist you with all of your wellness concerns from eating right, managing a chronic condition, beginning a fitness program, all the way through reducing stress.  Your coach will provide you with a structured and supportive approach that is designed to motivate change and achieve results.  You will receive an individualized plan that will help you reach your goals in a manageable way.  Your coach will become familiar with your strengths, weaknesses, objectives, and aspirations.

Your health coach will really get to know you before making any recommendations.  They will listen to determine what your wellness concerns and goals are in order to understand exactly what you hope to gain from the program.  In addition, your coach will ascertain how far you are from achieving your goals and will design a progressive plan that will allow you to achieve results in a timeframe that works for you.  How can you go wrong with an individualized plan that is designed just for you?
