Letter From Joshua
Many of us approach “being fit” with the wrong mind-set. Being fit isn’t the same as being skinny or strong – it’s about being in a state of balanced health and well-being.
People need to exercise as the body thrives on movement and quickly degenerates without it. However, not everyone’s physical activity needs are the same. Different people require different types of exercise to stay healthy, and exercise needs change over time.
Movement is a lot like food. Certain foods work for certain people, and certain types of exercise work for certain people as well. Your role as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach is to apply a bio-individual lens when working with your clients to discover which forms of exercise nourish and fuel their bodies.
In this course, you’ll learn about the psychology of fitness and get to the roots of why your clients struggle with unhealthy habits. You’ll guide your clients to create their own personalized movement plans while helping them understand the value of functional fitness and nutrition.
By working within your scope of practice as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, you’ll support and guide your clients (and yourself) to find better balance in this key area of primary food.
Men and women of all ages and sizes need to exercise, and now Health Coaches have the unique opportunity to help their clients incorporate their ideal forms of physical activity into their everyday lives!
