Hi am a bit confused on the whole coaching thing. I would like to expand my knowledge but having a hard time deciding which route to go. I am a stay at home mom with a personal training cert. and working on aquiring all the head knowledge before i go out into the field. I would like to access people as whole, fitness, mindset, lifestyle, etc. I see there are wellness coaches, life coaches, and now I see ACE has a health coach certificate. I was also considering the ACE lifestyle and weight management coach. Any thoughts out there on which gives you the most info and freedom to work with peolple on all aspects of health.
Thanks Matt for the thorough answer on the health coach, that sounds interesting to me as I love the idea of the psychology aspect of training and coaching. I was considering the Institute of Intergrative Nutrition, to further educate myself, but being a stay at home mom right now it is a lot of money for me to spend. So I think I will go for ACE’s health coach, it sounds like a good way to diversify myself in this field.
Thanks everyone for your input 🙂
