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.
I too am a stay at home mom to 3 little ones and am a personal trainer part time. I work out of my home and go to clients houses bringing all equipment with me. I also work with small groups. I was recently certified through ACE as a Lifestyle and Weight Management Coach, now the Health Coach certification. It has really been a great partnership to how I was already helping my clients and helped me to bolster my knowledge base and expand my services. I now feel like I can more broadly help my clients with their weight loss and nutritional struggles. As you already know, losing weight is about so much more than exercise. The ACE Health Coach certification helped to give me the tools I needed to help my clients with this issue. I work specifically with pre/post natal clients and women.
Good luck to you!
