I had the ACE Health Coach certification when it was called ‘Lifestyle and Weight Management Consultant’. I would pick it again today, in part on the reputation of ACE.
I am certified by Wellcoaches who partnered with ACSM several years ago which is how I found out about the program. Wellcoaches has opened many doors for me including 2 recent employment opportunities. I am currently completing the advanced coach training. Completing the Wellcoaches training is one of the best personal and professional moves I have made:)
