  • Attendance: The percentage of required training sessions and discussions with your personal wellness coach that you actually attend will determine this portion of your grade.
  • Quiz Scores: Each week, a short lesson and quiz will be available on www.livewellfirst.com. You are free to use any source, including a friend, to complete these quizzes.
  • Group Training Sessions: Group training classes will be offered 3 days per week. You must attend all 3 full sessions each week to earn all of your attendance points. If one session is missed, you are expected to make up this training session on your own.
  • Personal Wellness Coaching:
 Each month, you will have a one-on-one phone discussion with your trainer. The coach will discuss with you the course of your program and answer any questions you may have.
