CHW Course FAQ’s
Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:
My Health coaching sessions began on 6/30. The goal I am reaching towards is achieving a perfect 600 on the ACFT in April 2023. Thru multiple sessions focusing in on my motivations and lifestyle parameters my coach and I established a plan. This helped me to progress in the lagging areas of the test while maintaining the higher level of performance in others. As of the beginning of Sept. the I have improved on my preliminary score by 100 points and I am on track to continue that trend towards full marks by next spring.
CPL, WI Army National Guard
Working with the Dietitian has helped me control my binging and overeating habits. It has helped ease my stress related to food and improve my relationship with food. I used to view food as a reward when in reality it is a necessity. I can’t go without it but I can choose what kind of foods I eat.
SGT, WI Army National Guard
I’m impressed that there are tools to help me, rather than just “lose some weight.”
Msgt, WI Air National Guard Spouse
I’m changing the way I think about food and body image for the better.
