MyHealthCoach.com Helps Employees Keep Fitness Commitments
July 11, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsCincinnati, Ohio, July 11, 2007 - Most working parents experience stress balancing work and family. Summer's transitions can intensify stress with changed routines and irregular work out schedules. MyHealthCoach.com is a valuable employee benefit to help workers balance work and family issues, providing a constant support system to stay with their fitness programs - despite the changes in family life
Health and fitness are key components to productivity on the job.
"Changing schedules make it hard for working parents to make exercise a priority," said Sean Slovenski, chief executive officer of Hummingbird Coaching Services. "While it might seem like summer is a great time to get out and exercise, there is actually a danger of getting out of healthy routines this time of year. Health coaching helps clarify the work, health and family balance issues, and is a key way for companies to maintain employee health, productivity and moral."
MyHealthCoach.com incorporates a coaching model that guides coaches to arrange their interactions to help produce quick results in employee's areas of concern. Consistency is the key to success. With the shift from spring to summer plus the summer vacation, employees may need to reevaluate their fitness regimes and nutritional issues.
MyHealthCoach.com's online delivery model enables members to engage at their convenience and in shorter spurts. With online coaching, members and coaches communicate an average of four times a month, compared to seven times per year with telephonic coaching. This level of interaction, and how the coaching leverages members' strengths, leads to better rates of participation and retention. It also provides members support to stay focused and productive at the workplace.
