The Importance of a Certified Lifespan Coach

Obesity in youth is simply still too high, with 13.7 million children affected today. And on the other end of the spectrum, at an estimated 73 million, the baby boomer generation is the second-largest demographic just after millennials. And with both groups looking for solutions to their specific health concerns, they need individual guidance to help them create active and healthy lifestyle habits.

As an ISSA Certified Lifespan Coach, you can learn how to teach kids to value a healthy lifestyle – and be a proactive source to helping prevent and decrease childhood obesity numbers. With your certification you will be able to help the youngest generation get excited about exercise and strive to stay active as they get older. You’ll also learn how to approach instructing a senior client. You’ll gain the knowledge to help them understand their bodies changing needs and how to prevent injuries. But most importantly, you’ll be able to help both age groups increase their quality of life. With ISSA’s Lifespan Coach Certification, you’ll make a change in your client’s life through an understanding of health and fitness that they can appreciate no matter where they are in life.
