This course integrates multiple factors into your coaching experience. Obviously, living healthy in a holistic manner requires many different factors to be in balance; if one’s sleep is off, then their cognition and awareness of compromised. If the health of your client’s microbiome is out of whack, a cascading effect of unintended – and typically, unwanted – processes begin to have a negative impact on our client beyond the scale or gym. Since we want each student to have a satisfying experience, we have formatted this course to be broken down into three main elements for candidates of Integrated Holistic Coach to be successful in completing this in-depth, interesting course.
Topics supporting holism serve as the main subjects featured in the training for this course:
- Defining Holistic Nutrition
- The Human Body; a holistic view
- Holistic Health
- Cardiovascular Concerns
- Nutritional Standards: How Did We Get Here?
- Nutrition in the Modern World
- Diets and Dietary Theories
A holistic map of the human body requires a lot of study. Coaches have to learn the basic parts, the way they move and their location in the body. Coaches also have to play a supporting role in the interventions that their client’s need, meaning that if we know about holistic health in a general sense, we have something to build upon. Cardiovascular health, nutrition, nutraceuticals and an understanding of modern nutrition serves Coaches by providing a more holistic perspective of their client. Understanding the client is shaped as much by understanding their lifestyle as it is by being competent to truly assist a client in need. Your training has to include all of this, and more.
While it is certainly an advantage to have training of all the topics supporting holism, there has to be some care taken to ensure coaches know what to do when it is time to get before a client. We want you to feel confident, knowledgeable and well-trained for this calling.
What Kind Of Coach Do You Want To Be?
