Preferred Fitness Gym Program

Easy to enroll. No issues getting benefits to be accepted. I've enjoyed the service and wouldn't have been able to enroll if it wasn't covered.

Telephonic Health Coaching

"Coach Christine has taught me how to change my mindset when it comes to eating nutritious foods along with incorporating exercise. From defining and explaining the importance of eating organic foods, along with recommendations of different foods and recipes to try, to book recommendations, and answering my endless questions, she has encouraged me to branch out and try new things. My mindset has shifted since starting one-on-one health coaching with FHCP. I am not looking for a quick fix, or a new fad to lose weight fast. Coach Christine has taught me that creating healthy habits that become life long habits, are way more important. I am more confident in myself and in creating health goals because I know I have a supportive and caring coach by my side. Thank you Coach Christine and FHCP!"

Christine was my life coach and she was phenomanal! I had already started exercise and eating a little better but she just completed it for me. She was motivational and kind. She would not say perfection but progress! She helped with meditation at night before bed. She guideded me and helped me reach obtainiable goals! I highly recommend her.

Christine was so great! She helped me set a realistic goal for weight loss and exercise. She taught me about reading labels and not to injest all of the Atkin bars and sugar free foods - instead to eat real food with reasonable portions. We talked about how I could do exercise every day and where to get resources for different types of exercise. She was so great and I have already lost 7 pounds by making small changes and tweaks. I'm so glad I took advantage of the program!

Christine was amazing! She will set up goals with me and motivated me to fulfill them. She provided me with tips and advice to help with my health changes. Her advice and coaching has helped me continue to shed pounds "off". She was very polite, sweet and positive. I enjoyed speaking to her and looked forward to her weekly coaching!

I signed up with Florida Health Care wellness program for assistance with healthier eating habits and obtain guidance to change my unhealthy eating patterns. After signing up, I retained a severe reluctance to change. Personally, I try to acheive everything at once, look for a quick fix, which is unrealistic, and old behaviors return. This thought process has led to discouragement and disappointment.

My having a health coach, has helped in different, unimaginable ways; Each week, chatting with my coach, has helped me embrace a higher accountability in choosing small steps, small goals, and obtaining self-success. I am human, and I have tendencies to go three steps backwards, and one step forward. My first step forward was a choice. It was not the start of a new diet or a fad. It was a choice to change my life.

My coach and I shared many interesting ideas and tips to my recognizing how I feel about food, my thought process when making poor food choices verses choices for healthy food. It is the smallest change, making a simple choice, and owning it. In the same concept, each "small" pound, they all add up.

My coach is phenomenal, more so, she is supportive, she maintains a judgement free conversation, and we strategize a goal. I am single, her support allows me to feel like I belong to a team, and I am not alone. I look forward to changing the way I view food, slowly making healthier food choices, or food substitutes, and recognizing my own feelings surrounding my eating habits and a patterns, with no pressure. My coach has been a wonderful inspiration, I look forward to hearing from her, and there is a new excitment with each small success. It is said, when consuming food, "everything in moderation", using the same small steps to obtain healthier eating habits and weight loss, I also chose these steps to lead to "life cchoice changes", as each small success regarding food consumption; this to, is done in "moderation'.

Wellness Challenges

I loved these challenges. It fit into my schedule nicely and did not interfere with my work. I thought your "team" did a wonderful job in creating their presentations. It was clear and precise and I felt very welcomed. Carla Cosio is "the best"! I miss seeing her smiling face. ... I did not expect I would be the one to win the gift, but I am glad I did and will enjoy making new quick and easy recipes for our family.
