What Do We Do?

As Wellness Coaches, we will meet with you throughout the semester to establish an exercise routine tailored to your needs. We can help you in the following 5 areas: fitness training, nutritional coaching, healthy relationships, intuitive eating, and stress management. This is a free service from BYU students to BYU students.

Fitness Training

A student can meet with a coach up to 4 times in a semester. The purpose of this coaching series is to acclimate students to the equipment and resources in the BYU gym area. This is a basic and entry level type instruction series in which the coaches show students how to create a workout that is well rounded, how to create SMART goals, how to keep proper form when doing basic movements and helping students build their confidence when in a gym setting.


A client can meet with a coach up to 6 times in a semester. The purpose of this coaching series is to educate students on the basics of nutrition, including calories, food groups, navigating food labels, dispelling fad diet trends, macronutrients etc. For this coaching series, we help students create reasonable goals to being a balanced eater. This series is closely related to Intuitive Eating.

Social Strategies (Healthy Relationships)

A student can meet with a coach up to 4 times. The purpose of this coaching series is to help students discover the things they are already proficient at and create reasonable goals to strengthen their relationships with themselves, Family, Friends and others. Students will learn how to resolve conflicts and build others up all while building their own self confidence and self-worth.

Intuitive Eating

A student can meet with a coach up to 6 times. The purpose of this series is to help students make peace with food, free themselves of chronic dieting and rediscover the pleasures of eating mindfully.
