Health Coaching at Pitt

Do you feel like you've tried everything to get healthy? Have you wondered how to make lifestyle changes that last? A partner to help you define your goals might be just what you need.

One-on-one health coaching services offer lifestyle support and allow you to customize your goals. Health coaching is free of charge for faculty and staff with a UPMC Health Plan, and is offered onsite, over the phone, and online.

When you partner with a health coach, you can:

  • Manage your weight
  • Get active
  • Eat healthier
  • Reduce stress
  • Quit smoking

Pitt also offers onsite health coaching that allows your faculty and staff to recharge and learn healthy tips that can be used at work or at home. A health coach can provide health and wellness services to your team or department, many of which can be done during breaks throughout the work day. The techniques and tips your faculty and staff learn can be transferred to life outside of the office for even more benefits.

Health coaching can offer many benefits to you and your department, including:

  • Better concentration, focus, and creativity
  • Reduced absenteeism
  • Higher energy levels
  • Improved productivity
  • Happier work environment
