PITTSFORD—An internet startup seeks to increase life expectancy with health coaching. Health Coach Connect, LLC, has launched a web-based platform, Health Coach Connect, to help people interested in making sustainable lifestyle changes to connect with professional health coaches of varying specialties, according to a recent news release. The company was founded by two sisters and their niece: Stacy Musial, a licensed psychotherapist, Sue Musial Bigelow, a respiratory therapist, and Sandy Musial, a pediatrician.
“Average U.S. life expectancy recently fell for the first time since 1999, and we know that lifestyle is responsible for many health issues and premature deaths,” said Stacy Musial. “Health Coach Connect can help increase human life spans with one-to-one personalized health coaching that leads to profound lifestyle changes.”
Health Coach Connect offers free initial assessments and consultations to match clients with an individual health coach. A six-month package includes regularly scheduled video chat sessions, individualized health goals and plans, a “wellness wheel assessment” for life balance, and text messaging support throughout the week. A mobile app provides secure communication, activity and food tracking, and other interactive tools.
Health Coach Connect solves many of the issues that confront people seeking health coaches today. With coaching and dietary changes:
The risk of heart attack can be lowered in only three weeks.
Angina and leg pain can disappear in less than a year.
Blood flow to clogged arteries can be fully restored within a few years.
