"FITNESS IS NOW "HEALTH"

"Many people have challenges outside the need for physical activity that might prevent them from carrying out their fitness goals—situations at work, nutrition, sleep problems, stress. A health coach can help people craft a program with meaningful steps that helps them improve the quality of their lives. You look at each person and meet people where they are". - Todd Galati

"It isn't about just renaming what you're already doing. A lot of personal trainers are focused on the body and not on the mind. For coaching, you need to focus on facilitating change, not barking at a client to do 10 more push-ups." - Margaret Moore

"With respect to the subspecialty, it brings crucial behavioural change services that heretofore have been lacking to exercise, nutrition, nursing and other areas" - Richard Cotton MA, ACSM

"I think you are going to see a growing acceptance of behaviour-change interventionists (health coaches) as part of the health care team" - Cedric Bryant, PhD

"A trainer who doesn't understand how body, mind and spirit are connected will never again be a very valuable health professional. Todays modern trainer needs to know how to get their clients lean, recovered, connected, motivated, thinking, green, inspired, and passion driven" - Ror Alexander (Wellness Architect).

THE SPHERES OF OPTIMIZED HEALTH

INTERNAL

MICRO

INTERACTION

MESO

EXTERNAL

MACRO

At tIFA we believe fitness and exercise are very important but we are also very aware that there is MUCH more to optimal health than just fitness alone. We strongly subscribe to the 3 Spheres of Optimal Health.

 

  • The Internalgut health, hormones, internal environments, lead by nutrition. 

  • The Interactionour movement and actions between the internal and external.

  • The Externalour environment.

 

This is why we have elements of all 3 in our comprehensive fitness professional full diploma program and wide range of courses. While the main program focus is on the Interaction sphere (i.e. exercise/movement), we cannot ignore the other 2 in good conscience if our goal is to help ourselves and clients to the best of our abilities and reach true optimized health and fitness. This is why we are truly the worlds first "WholeFitness" School of Fitness.

LATEST HEALTH NEWS

How COVID is Transforming the Fit Biz

It’s been well established that, beyond its benefit to our physical health, exercise is also good for stress management and cognitive function. However, many people have struggled to make time, especially when having to factor in a work commute and professional, family, or social obligations. The cost of gym or studio memberships has also been a common barrier to exercise.

Embracing Wellness Coaching over Personal Training

Health clubs that offer the expanded services that skilled health and wellness coaches have in their toolboxes are likely to benefit, but club operators must be careful not to make the mistake of assuming that the roles of personal trainer and wellness coach are interchangeable.

TESTIMONIALS

JUSTINE, NAFC PT

NAFC is the easiest and fastest way to become a license fitness coach! Thank you NAFC afterall reading all the 3 manuals and passing all those 3 with average of 87,86, and 89% and after passing my practical yesterday with coach Ror Alexander. Finally Im a certified NAFC coach now. Thank you NAFC!!!

KARYN, NAFC PT

As a master trainer of over 16 years who was looking for something a bit different when it came time to renew my license, I am very happy that I found NAFC. Like me, they believe in total body wellness and overall health. They spend a great deal of time discussing postural deviations and corrections and injury prevention. They make sure that their trainers can teach clients to lead well balanced and active lives outside of the gym. I learned new things and was reminding of the importance of many more. Thanks NAFC!

CARNISHA, NAFC PT

I am very excited to be working towards my PT certification through NAFC! I always want to receive the best training and education anytime I am providing services to others. You should always want to deliver your best! I have found the information to be helpful and I am confident that I will be able to receive the education and guidance I need from NAFC to make my business successful. I look forward to this journey to make my dream come true and I am thankful NAFC has given me the platform to do so
