Yesterday I came across an article, What Are You Building In the New Year, that motivated me to write down all of the many aspirations I want to complete in 2014. Here is a peek at the plan that I am working on The Get Fit Diva and I am so appreciative for Alexandra Franzen for these goal prompts:
In 2014, I am building … the Get Fit Diva as an online resource for EVERYONE on their healthier living journeys
This building — my body of work — will include a few very helpful offerings for the world, including … becoming an ACE Health Coach, continuing on my healthier living journey
In order to build what I want to build, I’ll need to release / remove a few things from my world, including … finding balance and carving time for the things that are important.
Because what I really want to be known for is … being an inspiration.
When things start to feel overwhelming, I will keep it simple by reminding myself that my job is simply to … share my healthy living journey to inspire and motivate others.
And by this time next year, I will be SO proud to have completed ONE big thing, which is … become an ACE Health Coach.
And THAT is my plan for 2014.
One of those aspirations is to hunker down and start studying for the ACE Health Coach certification. I was very fortunate to win a free ACE Health Coach certification bundle from a contest I entered at the FitSocial Conference. Becoming an ACE Health Coach has been one of my goals of my healthy living journey.
All across the country, people are struggling with their weight. They’re struggling with obstacles that have kept them from eating better, moving more and making their health a priority. They’re struggling to adopt the lifestyles they need to fend off preventable disease, live longer and spend less on health care. They are living in a vicious cycle of temporary change fueled by quick-fix solutions, and as a result, many of their achievements are short lived. The ACE Health Coach Certification was designed to produce professionals who can help people end that vicious cycle. Professionals who have the behavior change, physical activity and nutrition coaching skills they need to empower people to positive, long-term healthy change.
I am so excited to begin the certification process to become an ACE Health Coach. Aside from being part of the largest nonprofit health and fitness organization in the world, becoming an ACE Health Coach will give me the skills I need to truly change the way people live.
ACE gives me the support necessary to reach this goal with the ACE Resource Center. The ACE Resource Center is available by phone, email and social media to explain key concepts or offer encouragement when needed. ACE Academy Select, our Web-based program, also provides an in-depth look at topics covered on the exam and helps you streamline the study process. The experience includes custom progress tracking, our exam review course and two online practice tests.
Here is a great video with ACE Chief Science Officer Cedric Bryant, Ph.D., and ACE Healthcare Solutions Director Natalie Digate Muth, M.D., M.P.H., R.D., discusing the ACE Health Coach Certification and how it can help health and fitness professionals from a variety of fields help people achieve real change:
