Welcome to our growing, global community of Certified Coaches. Our Core Coach Training program is widely respected as the gold standard. Our industry-first programs gave birth to a new professional, the Certified Health and Wellness Coach. Expanding our scope, we now provide also training for the Certified Personal Coach. Our core training and certification programs, endorsed by our strategic partners, the American College of Sports Medicine and the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, are designed for professionals with expertise such as: weight, nutrition, fitness, stress or mind/body medicine, lifestyle medicine, chronic disease, and mental health.
