THE FIRST NAME IN COACHING
Comprehensive & Personalized Wellness Coach Training
The Catalyst Coaching Institute offers the world’s premier health and wellness coach certification programs. Each program provides comprehensive training that caters to your individual development – all while seamlessly integrating with your busy schedule.
At Catalyst, we offer a pathway to certification through two programs that work in a complementary two-step process.
Wellness Coach Training
Certified Wellness Coach (CWC) training is for those wanting a new career as an accredited health and wellness coach, or those who want to enhance their current career with additional skills. Available in live and online versions, the course earns you the designation of Certified Wellness Coach from Catalyst Coaching Institute. The CWC program is also the first step toward certification through the National Board for Health & Wellness Coaching, if you choose that path.
Pathway to National Certification
Our Master Certified Wellness Coach (MCWC) training is the next step for experienced health and wellness professionals looking to become a nationally certified coach through the National Board for Health & Wellness Coaching (NBHWC). After completing our Certified Wellness Coach Fast Track program, you may complete the MCWC program to fulfill the training requirement to apply for the national wellness exam.
As a coach who is now moving into the health and wellness arena, the Catalyst Coaching Institute training provided what I needed to help me excel in my own career. The way they incorporate Motivational Interviewing on such a practical level is something every coach should know and use in their daily practice. Suzanna and Brad are both wonderful instructors and I would absolutely recommend Catalyst to anyone who is considering this route in their career.
As a longtime physical therapist, I began to research how a wellness coaching program might enhance the services we offer in our clinic. The Catalyst Coaching Institute immediately stood out. We had no desire to just “hang out a shingle” and start coaching. With Catalyst, I found formal education from a nationally-recognized and highly accredited organization with dedication to both clients and team members alike. The Catalyst team has continued to mentor me all the way through National Board Certification and has been instrumental in the success of our wellness coaching program. It could not have been a better decision.
Catalyst Coaching Institute represents the best of both worlds when it comes to wellness coaching. Brad has an amazing business background and Suzanna is the mastermind behind the coaching, so you are really getting a well-rounded training program. Whether you are starting your own business or working for a company you will feel that you are prepared to start your journey as a wellness coach.
After about 20 years of physical therapy practice, I decided to start my own business combining coaching and physical therapy. Realizing I needed education in wellness coaching one of my first steps was to certify through Catalyst. Its national credibility and recognition made it an easy choice. The training was very well rounded and user friendly. I was able to incorporate the coaching techniques from the get-go and when I had some questions, they were always willing to help. I’m pleased to say that my coaching business has really taken off — thanks Catalyst for being a huge "catalyst” in getting my second career jump started!
The FastTrack program in Colorado provided a very valuable weekend! Suzanna’s teaching style is comprehensive, approachable and honest, making it easy to understand and put everything into practice. The hands-on practice with actual Mentor Coaches on site with us also provided a distinct advantage over traditional learning settings. To top it off, the interaction with the other attendees provided a new perspective and enhanced the discussions/learning process. It was so great to be with people from all over the country who all have the same goal of helping people. Thank you!
