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.
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.
