Why Health Coach?
All across the country, people are struggling with their weight. They’re struggling with obstacles that have kept them from eating better, moving more and making their health a priority. They’re struggling to adopt the lifestyles they need to fend off preventable disease, live longer and spend less on health care. They are living in a vicious cycle of temporary change fueled by quick-fix solutions, and as a result, many of their achievements are short lived. The ACE Health Coach Certification was designed to produce professionals who can help people end that vicious cycle. Professionals who have the behavior change, physical activity and nutrition coaching skills they need to empower people to positive, long-term healthy change.
