I have 4 fitness certifications including: ACE Gold Personal Trainer, ACE Lifestyle and Weight Management Coach, AFAA Group Exercise Instructor, AFAA Step Certified Instructor and Zumba Basic liscence, and have been certified since 1989. Additionally, I have 18 years experience in the healthcare field – 10 in Community Health and 8 in Cardiac Rehabiliation and have “earned my stripes” in the fitness and health fields. I’m currently exploring a new career path to encompass whole well-being. Thank-you in advance for your help.
I think you should do it!!
Getting my mind ready for working out again!! I sure did miss it!! I can start again because you taught me how!! Your a fantastic person coach and motivater and I can’t wait to work with you again.
If I had to Discribe you in one word it would be “AMAZING”
Your a great friend and I thank you for showing the way to a healthy life style.
I haven’t done Wellcoaches, but next month I will finish my health coach training with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. We cover over 100 dietary theories in addition to other things that keep people from reaching their health goals. It is a whole person approach and takes about 10 months via distance learning.
I have enjoyed the program and graduates can come back for a free second year program called “Immersion” to further refine our skills.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you all for your input. I appreciate the time you took to respond with thoughtful answers from your individual experiences.
Bryant, sounds like Wellcoaches is very reputable and held in high regard among our peers. I am not sure about needing certification. It just seemed like the next logical step in my career development/evolution.
Thankfully, I have more than opinion. I am happy to say that I’ve earned the Wellcoaches credential just about three years ago and it has been very instrumental to my professional growth.
Without a doubt it will be worth your time and effort. If after your earn your Wellcoaches credential please know that Wellcoaches offers a 10-month course.
I do hope you decide to take their course.
