I have recently come to the life changing decision to become a 'lifestyle' coach, bringing together the disciplines of exercise, nutrition, psychology and communication (and whatever else seems useful as I learn more). The reasoning is that obesity is still increasing, chronic disease is still increasing, lifestyle factors play a big role, and I want to make the world happier and healthier one person at a time.
The plan was to go back to uni and study exercise and sport science, nutrition/dietetics and psychology. Then build experience, exposure, networks etc to the health/coaching/self development industries.
However, I have gone back to Tim's books thinking perhaps I don't 'need' the piece of paper from a uni (unless its required for certification to industry bodies). Also, I may be learning the traditional 15 reps x 3 sets theory, and not the MED way Tim goes about things..
What do you think of the plan? How would you set about achieving it? What should I consider moving towards this vision?
