"You Can't Stop the Waves, but you Can Learn to Surf"

Health Coaching Riding the Aging Wave - Part 1
Introduction to Health Coaching

In this course we will focus on ways to support our clients across decades of aging.  While this is not a Health Coaching certification, you will learn about health coaching methods  you can use to help your clients stay on their fitness path through life's events and transitions. The content will include concepts with a perspective on Middle Age and Older Age and most importantly where there are differences.

This course will consist of three Parts. Currently Part 1 (consisting of Part 1A, 1B and 1C) is available for your continuing education. Stay tuned for the launch of Parts 2 and 3 which are currently under development.

One-Time Payment of $129 for Part 1


"I believe that the pandemic, which the fitness industry continues to contend with, has forever changed the job description of the Personal Trainer. No longer is it enough to provide exercise instruction and nutrition advice. The Personal Trainer must become a coach and guide their clients, step by step, along their health/fitness journey. Riding the Aging Wave provides clear and concise methods for the personal trainer to do just that"

- Rick Sullivan, CPT and Owner, Evolve Exercise

"The Course was well organized and included practical information with concrete evidence and examples for how to incorporate learnings into Coaching Approach to enhance overall effectiveness"

Instructors' Thoughts on the Course

Liz Cohen & Deborah Glassford 

Aging is something on everyone’s mind – in so many different ways.  Youngsters want to be Teenagers; Teenagers want to be Adults – and then when you become an Adult, your thoughts go to how can I stay young.  But Aging is part of life and when we realized the variety of our client's ages, it struck us – it’s important to understand as we age what is changing and how our support of our clients may need to change as well. That’s why we created this course, Health Coaching- Riding the Aging Wave.
