Sligo, your Healthcoach will see you now!

Following the successful launch of healthcoach by laya healthcare – an innovative new benefit unlike anything else available on the market - a dedicated Healthcoach clinic has now opened in Sligo. Healthcoach by laya healthcare is available to members aged 18 years+ at no additional cost[1], giving them access to a face-to-face consultation with a qualified Healthcoach who designs a personalised 8-week health programme encompassing all aspects of their health including fitness, nutrition and mental wellbeing. 

The biggest preventative health innovation laya healthcare has ever embarked on; healthcoach is an exclusive benefit available on renewal to all new and existing members who can access a face-to-face consultation with a qualified Healthcoach every two years in any of the nine new dedicated healthcoach clinics located nationwide, including a Sligo clinic in Club Vitae at Clayton Hotel Sligo.

At each face-to-face consultation, a qualified Healthcoach carries out a series of five non-diagnostic health assessments; blood pressure, glucose level, body composition, lung function and a fitness test. Using this personal health assessment, the qualified Healthcoaches create a tailored health programme encompassing all aspects of a person’s health, from fitness and nutrition to mental wellbeing.  The personalised health programmes are then delivered to each individual member through a dedicated healthcoach App. 

Healthcoach does not stop after the 8 week programme, the benefit continues to evolve, setting new goals and mentoring members. Fitness and nutritional advice as well as support tools such as wellbeing blogs, podcasts and videos are provided to help members achieve their physical and mental wellbeing goals, all compiled with expert input by Clinical Psychologists. 

Healthcoach is unlike any other offering currently available in the market. Much more than a fitness app, healthcoach continuously monitors progress, and motivates members with new challenges and healthy rewards from leading nationwide retailers including Lifestyle Sports, Eason and Deliveroo.

Commenting on the launch of healthcoach by laya healthcare In Sligo, Dónal Clancy, Managing Director said: “This is major news and an exciting departure for us as a health partner to our Sligo members. We’ve spent over a year in planning and testing, and we’re thrilled that the benefit is expanding across the country to additional clinics. With healthcoach, we want to empower our members to live and feel better, every day.  It’s about giving them the tools to achieve long-term healthy change and hit their goals, whether that’s losing weight, getting fit, or reducing stress.

“Healthcoach is easy and intuitive to use, and I think what will really impress people is its personalisation. Our members get the chance to choose their own Healthcoach, who will provide a tailored health programme to help them stay healthy and find the energy; motivation and information to make the right choices for them every day, with full digital support to allow them keep track of their progress and earn rewards for their efforts. We hope it will be a game-changer for laya healthcare and demonstrate to our members our ongoing commitment of ‘Looking After You Always’”, Clancy added.

Laya healthcare is recognised for its innovation and preventative health screenings. Healthcoach is the latest innovation aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of its 580,000 members and marks a major evolution in laya healthcare’s commitment in this space. All laya healthcare members will continue to have unique access to HeartBeat, the cardiac screening also available at no additional cost.
