Now it’s your turn!

Health and Wellness Coaching

Americans today are less healthy than ever. With the increasing time demands of the workplace, two income families, and kids’ school and extracurricular activities, the average American gets less proper nutrition, exercise, and sleep than is needed to maintain a healthy body. This not only affects the physical, but also the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of men, women, and children. Most people readily admit they need to change their habits, and have a desire to be more healthy, but lack the knowledge and dedication to make the necessary changes. This course will provide coaches with the knowledge and skills to effectively guide clients to a healthier holistic state, and enable them to train those clients to make lifestyle changes that will carry them to healthier futures.
