It’s a great book and it really helped me get my footing on coaching. It really addresses everything I wanted to know and more. I remember thinking every evening after reading a section that: “Wow, if I can get this down, I’d be a great coach” and I felt challenged and inspired. I still go back to it because some things they just explained so wonderfully.

We collaborate with partners, including the American College of Sports Medicine and the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, to help everyone who works in healthcare and wellness learn how to coach to improve health, well-being, and quality of life.

I studied Athletic Training in my undergraduate years, then went on to become a graduate assistant where I was able to use my athletic training skills as a Certified ATC while obtaining my Master’s Degree in Human Services: Health and Wellness. I chose Wellcoaches for my road to the NBHWC because I really wanted to be a part of the best of the best! I wanted a program that really cared for its student success, was life and health-changing for future clients, and used evidence-based practice and research while always being open to learning! I’m in Module 2 currently and so far, Wellcoaches has far exceeded my expectations!
