Who We Are

At Wellness Guides, we recognize healthy living is complex. Navigating this culture is difficult without proper guides.

Wellness is more than just healthy eating but healthy behaviors and healthy lifetsyle with that our team can help you achieve.

Wellness Guides began over 10 years ago as a collaboration between wellness behavioral specialist Dr. Russell Kennedy, and his wife, nutrition expert Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, CSO, LDN. Their intent was to integrate the work they were doing separately with their clients, helping them with weight loss, healthy eating and behavior change for living well.

The Kennedys have worked together in hospital and education based settings, movie sets and wellness camps.

Coach Empowerment and Athlete Wellness

Dr. Russell Kennedy has over 30 years of experience coaching athletes and is a former NCAA Division 1 gymnast for Syracuse University.  His current sports practice includes a strong focus on helping athletes with mental blocks as well as assisting coaches in how to best motivate and work with their athletes who are struggling.

Contact Dr. Kennedy’s office for more information on how to schedule a session for your athlete, team or coaches.

We’re with you for the long haul.

Our integrated system of nutrition and behavior change science will help you to not only to achieve your goals but to maintain and continue to grow them for the long term to help you reach your wellness potential.

Our team approach includes the option to partner and work with one of our health coaches.

Having a collaborative team can make all the difference.  The Wellness Guides health coaches work directly with Stacy & Dr. Russell Kennedy to support our clients and help them achieve their goals. Your goals and the route towards them are not always consistent and our team of trained professionals can help you implement a lifestyle plan that gives you the support and practical solutions you need for long-term success.


We practice health and wellness in our own lives, everyday. It’s our true passion!
