About Practical Health & Wellness Associates

Steve Reinhold, President | Coach | Consultant

PHW Associates was founded with the principle that we all can live healthy, balanced, productive, and fulfilling lives. Harnessing a rich background spanning 30+ years in the software industry and a subsequent transformation into a certified health and wellness professional, I bring a unique blend of skills to elevate both employee and organizational success.

Having experienced the demands of the fast-paced software industry, I understand the impact it can have on health, happiness, and ultimately, professional performance. In my experience, I discovered the power of science-driven, proven health practices, catalyzing my shift to a health and wellness professional. Armed with a Master’s degree in Sports and Health Sciences and Health Coach Certification from the trusted and accredited Dr. Sears Wellness Institute, along with, a strong business and technology background, I specialize in guiding individuals and organizations toward improved business outcomes through enhanced employee health and well-being.

At Practical Health & Wellness Associates, we empower small and medium-sized companies to transform their workforce by enhancing employee health and wellness through personalized, very different, “Better You” wellness programs.

Our proven Better You challenge formula delivers an exceptional 4X the employee engagement compared to other offerings — ensuring tangible results for both the employee and the organization.

Better You programs are different because they are:
– Personalized – to meet the employees where they are,
– Coach lead – to motivate and hold accountable,
– Easy and fun – using a state-of-the-art app for progress tracking and coach/employee interaction, and
– Appealing – with right-sized, 6-week long challenges featuring topics employees care about like weight loss, nutrition and exercise, stress management, and sleep improvement.

If you are running a business and looking to improve the health and wellness of your employees while improving organizational productivity, job satisfaction, and retention rates, let’s have a talk.

“one person who is truly understanding, who takes the trouble to listen to us as we consider a problem, can change our whole outlook on the world.” -E. H. Mayo
