“I found the information in the course useful for anyone looking for a life change journey and behavioural coaching to achieve health and wellness. The distance learning was a good method for me as it allowed me to work at my pace and in my own environment in a flexible manner. The course content would be applicable to all nationalities and would benefit most people, from different social groups, cultures and religions -diversity! I am glad I took the course and am sure it will be of benefit to my business and future clients in fitness coaching and corporate wellness.”  Sharon Clare - Bodycoach fitness, United Kingdom
