Becoming the Ultimate Coach with the Jock and the Doc

Should you get a nutrition certification as a trainer?

On this week's Becoming the Ultimate Coach, the Jock (Scott Schutte) and the Doc (Dr. Janine Stichter) break down why spending money on a certification that covers just nutrition is helpful but incomplete.

Is nutrition a vital component that needs to be addressed with clients?

Of course but... Is it the one thing keeping all clients from their goals? Probably not.

There is so much more to health and fitness than just tough workouts and learning about nutrition. For clients to truly change their behaviors they need customized, goal-oriented steps to replace unhealthy behaviors with healthier ones, or else they will fall right back into their old routines.

With Weight Loss Behavior Coaching, we give strategies to improve clients' nutrition but also spend time impacting stress management, happiness, and other facets of health and fitness that are essential for clients to incorporate their goals into their daily lives.
