This course was really helpful to take because it allowed for the opportunity to practically discuss and role play some of the topics and scenarios I had studied preparing for my health coach exam. It also presented the opportunity to think about how you would practically apply the techniques in real world coaching situations.
Great speaker, great information!
The material from the course I received at the workshop I often use it as a resource for what I eat,when and why I eat. I was hoping for a longer workshop but Fitness Pointe reduced the hours. It was nice with lunch provided too. Debi and I instantly connected and got to visit after the others left. I look forward to going to other ACE workshops and become ACE certified. I eventually want the fitness and nutrition specialist but i don't have a health degree. I'm saving money so I can train with ACE! Going to workshops helps me expand my learning more and eager how to apply what I learned!
