Individual and Group Coaching starts Tuesday!

Starting this Tuesday, January 24 individual or group coaching classes begin from 5-7 p.m., with weekly sessions being held at Ministry’s 2501 Main Building. Individual or group coaching classes are a great opportunity to explore techniques and learn skills that will assist you in achieving the best possible you. It is a supportive, non-judgmental relationship that encourages and assists in the navigation of such issues as weight loss.

As a previous member of a group coaching class states, “The friendships I formed in these coaching classes really helped me create a network of support that has helped me not only lose weight but keep it off. “Come alone or bring a friend, either way you will experience life changing ideas and have lots of fun and laughs along the way.

One on One and Group Coaching is available to all participants on a first come first serve basis. MCWR participants receive three, free thirty-minute sessions (over a $250.00 value) included as part of their entrance fee. Please email Dr. Celine Kline to sign-up; celine.kline@uwsp.edu
