The Spencer Institute’s Online Lifestyle Fitness Coach Certification Program Combines Aspects of Life Coaching and Personal Training

Share Article

A lifestyle fitness coach combines life coaching and personal training to help people meet both their fitness and life goals. The Spencer Institute's Lifestyle Fitness Coach certification offers online training for this growing career path.

More than a personal trainer and more than a life coach, lifestyle fitness coaches combine the best of both worlds to help athletes and clients achieve their goals both in the gym and in the world. The Spencer Institute now offers a unique online Lifestyle Fitness Coach Certification Program that combines life coaching and personal training into one satisfying career.

The 100 percent online, self-paced certification trains life coaches to uncover and harness their clients’ motivations, build rapport with clients, use questionnaires to determine likes, dislikes and short- and long-term goals. Lifestyle fitness coaches are often personal trainers looking to expand their skill set, and the coaching can be delivered as part of a regular training session or as a separate client meeting.
“Coaching is an art and training is a science. When they are combined correctly, lifestyle fitness coaches can help their clients attain greater levels of both success and satisfaction in their workouts and in other areas of their lives,” said Dr. John Spencer Ellis, CEO and president of The Spencer Institute and creator of the Lifestyle Fitness Coach Certification program. “Lifestyle fitness coaches can work with clients in person or over the phone, on both fitness and life goals, creating an endless variety of career growth opportunities. In addition, this work might be the missing link that helps your clients achieve total success.”

The comprehensive online Lifestyle Fitness Coach certification program includes online, distance learning manuals, audio training lessons and an exam as well as information on business models and marketing for coaches. It is approved for continuing education credits (CECs) for the Spencer Institute, ISSA and NESTA. A previous personal training or group exercise certification is recommended but is not required.

“Lifestyle fitness coaching is truly the next revolution in the fitness industry,” Ellis added. “Personal trainers no longer have to wonder how to keep their clients on track with their goals; this online training offers a step-by-step blueprint to success.”
