Job Description for Wellness Manager

A wellness manager helps individuals achieve and/or maintain a healthy lifestyle through modifications to diet and exercise, as well as through other health-related programming such as smoking cessation programs. These professionals work in a variety of environments, such as nursing homes, private practices, hospitals and corporations. Wellness managers may evaluate their clients' health and history to create a customized plan, providing instructions to the client. In some cases, a wellness manager is a fitness coach that leads clients directly in exercises; this generally requires experience working in a gym environment (especially as a personal trainer). The wellness director may also be in charge of administering medicine to patients, as well as organizing health screenings and other wellness-related programming for their organization. They may organize health fairs, create programming to address high-risk issues, and plan classes and seminars.
