Other Information: Illustrated
Published In: United States, 01 April 2013
This is a coaches' guide to wellness. Even the title of this new edition has been thoroughly revised to embrace the broad approach book takes in working with individuals looking to change their lifestyles for health-related reasons. Professionals learn how to work with individuals looking to tackle such issues as weight management, nutritional balance, exercise regularity, stress management and sleep issues with a focus on a balanced, complete wellness approach. It employs an approach which allows individuals flexibility on how they use the book and also allows those with credentials in fitness related areas, but not necessarily in coaching, to embrace and implement the book's content.
