The decision to earn your CWC as a Certified Wellness Coach is not one to be taken lightly.
Wellness coaching is personal. It’s effective when you connect with the individual.
You’re investing a significant amount of time, money and energy into your certification.
We don’t just talk about health and wellness here at Catalyst Coaching Institute…
In addition to the comprehensive training around the coaching components…
Wellness Coach Certification and Training
The Catalyst Coaching Institute is THE premier provider of comprehensive Wellness Coach Training, education and operational tools and resources for wellness coaches around the globe. In our Wellness Coaching Certification, we offer the official CWC designation as a Certified Wellness Coach as well as continuing education that provides you with everything you need to enhance both your coaching skills and your coaching business acumen. The Catalyst Coaching Institute offers two different tracks from which you can choose – the “Coaching Track” or the “Business Track”. Based on your career pursuits, you can select one or the other – or both. The Coaching Track leads to earning your CWC designation as a Certified Wellness Coach. The Business Track provides both the training and the resources to successfully run your own independent Wellness Coaching business.
Wellness Coach Training
The Coaching Track provides the training to develop and enhance your skills as a wellness coach. Our mission is to guide and support wellness coaches who are fully committed to maximizing their skills and outcomes as a professional. Our CWC certification is the ONLY coaching certification approved by three of the most notable review boards in the country: The Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy, the National Athletic Trainer’s Association’s Board of Certification and the American College of Sports Medicine. In developing the program, we’ve purposefully chosen not to place “ease” over “effectiveness” in the Wellness Coach Certification process. As you review various coach certification alternatives, you’ll note that the majority are available completely on-line. As much as we understand the business case for taking that approach, we believe effective wellness coach training requires some face to face time. Yes, it would be much less expensive for us to eliminate the manuals, site rental, healthy lunches and snacks, etc, and we’re losing potential coaches who want to just “check the box” and get their Wellness Certification done as easily and quickly as possible. But we also know from years of experience that the quality of your education is enhanced greatly through the incorporation of the critical live training component into the certification process. With that said, we have over half of the Wellness Training available on-line for your convenience. The total contact hours to earn your CWC Certification involves 16 hours of live training and then an additional 16 – 18 hours that is available remotely through live webinars, mentor coach interactions, as well as the oral and written exam that finalizes your CWC certification. We’re not looking for “everyone” to pursue their Wellness Certification and Training through the Catalyst Coaching Institute – only those who are fully committed to excellence as a wellness coach. If this describes you, we’d be pleased to have you join us on the Coaching Track.
You may be the greatest wellness coach in the land. However, if you don’t have the knowledge and tools to run the business side of the equation, your success is unlikely. The Business Track provides you with everything you need to build and run a successful business except the personal gumption to get it done. From sales and marketing to key indicators and putting together an effective business plan, the Business Track will give you the training and the guidance you need to start and grow your own successful independent wellness coaching business. In addition to the training, the business track integrates the tools and resources you need to literally start your company overnight with almost no overhead. This allows you to launch your business when you’re ready and then grow it over time with very little risk. If it’s your desire to start (or enhance your current) independent wellness coaching business, the Business Track will give you what you need to achieve your goals – beginning today. Please note: in addition to our introductory business training, we also offer a two-day concentrated “Building Your Business Retreat.” Please contact us for more details, dates and locations. *ACSM approved providership of this program does not imply endorsement of the sponsoring organization’s products/services.
