Has anyone compared the ACE Fitness Nutrition Specialty Certification and the Health Coach Certification?
I'm trying to decide between the two. Does the Health Coach Cert go into detail on fitness nutrition? I'm working on an employee wellness program, and am trying to decide which certification would be more beneficial. I'm already an ACE-certified personal trainer
The easiest way to find out is to contact ACE:
The American Council on Exercise

I am a Personal Trainer, and Health Coach which entails working with the overweight population to educate them about "wellness, fitness and lifestyle changes" (ACE Health Coach Manual). The Health Coach course uses the same general nutrition approach as the Personal Trainer course. If you want fitness nutrition in detail, I would go for the nutrition specialty certification, which I personally have not taken yet. Once more, ACE could answer your question in more detail.
