Can Healthy Living Be Fun & Easy?


You’re stressed out.
And probably not as healthy as you want to be, right? 

Maybe you’ve been told by your doctor that you need to make a lifestyle change to improve your health. Or perhaps you have a chronic condition which needs to be managed. 

If so, you’ve landed in the right place.

Wellness coaching can give you the support and guidance you need to develop new habits and become healthy again. 

What do you say?

Let’s have some fun while you develop a lifestyle for lifelong health!

How Does Wellness Coaching Work?

Hakim Health Partners meets with you one-on-one to understand your needs and goals – whether it’s a new resolution or doctor’s orders. We help you control what you can control and prioritize what needs to happen.

Resolutions and life changes are huge goals. We work together to map out a plan of small achievable goals. We’ll create a weekly target and a three-month objective. We help you reach your goals by holding you accountable.

During each meeting, we’ll work on positive phrasing and focus on what you do accomplish. We’ll talk about how you accomplished forward movement and what works for you. 

We want you to enjoy good health as you age. It doesn’t matter what age you start!   

We partner with you to:

  • Develop & make lifestyle changes to decrease your chronic disease risk factors

  • Increase & continue an ideal level of physical activity

  • Achieve & maintain a healthy weight

  • Enjoy a nutritious diet 

  • Manage your stress

  • Experience better & more restful sleep

  • Help you manage your chronic disease 

  • Be your best you

Wellness Coaching doesn’t stop with in-person consultations. 

Education and exercise are also on the menu at Hakim Health Partners. Explore healthy lifestyle topics in-depth through group workshops or come out and
