Understanding the science of what and why humans eat informs holistic wellness. From recognizing hunger cues and dietary patterns to debunking fad diets and nutritional misconceptions, NASM sheds new light on the human relationship with food.

I've spent a decade in the fitness industry first as a personal trainer. The role of the personal trainer has changed a lot. What clients expect is far beyond the education that a personal trainer receives. Personal trainers are asked to create change, lasting wellness change in someone's life that isn't necessarily just about movement. This is the course that I wanted five years ago and is a gift in my mind to an industry that is thirsty for more.

I took the CWC course to take it all to that next level and it's already paying for itself. I'm still new to it as a stand-alone practice, but I'm not new to the tools to cultivate positive behavior change. The CWC course gives you the confidence to make that transition because here's a panel of experts reaffirming what you've been doing in addition to giving you a strong system to organize and formalize those skills into a coaching practice.

I loved every second of this course. It made me feel excited, well-educated and equipped as a coach to help my clients change their lives in a realistic and meaningful way. I felt supported by the in depth steps to putting my knowledge into practice with a section on ethics and how to approach situations that may arise in my day to day business. This course is the thought leader in wellness education that our society so badly needs. I cannot recommend this certification enough for fitness professionals or those wanting to help others on a wellness journey that will actually work.

Erin L.

A big part of bettering myself has been learning more about movement, nutrition, sleep, and my overall wellbeing. I have to admit, I didn't know much about the machine that is my body. I slept horribly--taking pride in 4 hour nights--nary saw a vegetable that wasn't slathered in butter, and I rarely raised my heart rate beyond screaming about work. And I drank too much, of course. Mostly, I became a Wellness Coach so that I could learn about me. But I also did it so I could share more about wellness with others. It's kind of Life: Part I for me. The one where I put on my oxygen mask first, so I can help others put on theirs.
