I have degree in exercise science and would like to be a wellness coach in the future. Consequently, I feel like I may be “jumping the gun” by becoming an LWMC before obtaining a more general certification. I wonder: will I be able to simply train clients with this cert? Furthermore, should I accrue an appreciable amount of time as a personal trainer before specializing ( I have some training experience, though never professionally)? Would it be better to get a CSCS or an ACSM HFS first? Thank you for any wisdom on this matter!
That’s great you have an exercise science degree. What decision did you make?
I would go with personal training before LWMC; but, by now LWMC is renamed the Health Coach. The ACE site and staff are very helpful; they will be happy to help you decide.
Take care and have fun training.
