    Hi, love your site! Does well coaches offer any wellness/nutrition education or only how to be a great coach. Just curious.

    Thanks Ashley! It’s a work in progress because there are lots of training programs I’m learning about all the time. As for WellCoaches, it seems it is aimed mostly at supporting coaches to earn a certification. However, there are links for continuing education classes and workshops. I could not find any information on nutrition education though.

    Check back soon and hopefully there will be new information added that will be helpful to you!
