Do You Have What It Takes To Be A Wellness Coach?
Your passion, empathy, and unique life experiences make you naturally equipped to inspire others to make positive and lasting life changes. In fact, to begin the NASM Certified Wellness Coach program, no formal education or any other fitness certification is required.
So, let NASM get you started!
What Exactly Is A Wellness Coach?
Health Coach. Life Coach. Wellness Coach. It's all the same, right?
Not exactly. A health coach provides clients with programs designed to meet specific health goals based on a diagnosis that requires a lifestyle change like reducing high blood pressure. A life coach guides clients on a well defined path to specific end goals typically related to career, relationships or finances.
But as an NASM certified Wellness Coach, you won't tell your clients what to do. You'll educate and empower them to make meaningful, ongoing choices that lead to a healthier, more connected, and more emotionally satisfying life.
