Health Coaching

Why is CPS providing FREE health coaching?
We know that a good life includes good health. That’s why, as part of our continued commitment to Employee Wellness, CPS offers health coaching — powered by Marathon Health. Through this program, you can receive face-to-face or over-the-phone consultations with a certified clinician and subsequent ongoing care to help you achieve optimal health.

What is health coaching and how can it help you?
Health coaching is designed to help you better understand your own health and provide you with the tools and resources to address many areas of concern. You and a Marathon Health provider will work together — in a confidential setting — to identify and reduce your health risks, set and achieve specific health goals and maintain or improve your well-being. And you can set the pace for how often and when you meet.

Health coaching can help you address an array of personal issues or concerns, including weight loss, stress management, depression, tobacco cessation and low back pain. Additionally, health coaches can help you manage chronic conditions such as diabetes, asthma, heart disease and high blood pressure.

How long does the coaching session take?
Most appointments take about 30 minutes, unless it is a one-time Comprehensive Health Review, which may last 45 minutes.
