New Career Path For Fitness Trainers and Life Coaches Just May Be In the Corporate World

October 29, 2008

Corporate Wellness Coaches reduce employee sick days and add value to careers.

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (PRnine – October 29, 2008) – The Spencer Institute for Life Coaching has announced the launch of its Corporate Wellness Coach Certification in an effort to grow careers and save companies money. Corporate wellness statistics depict a savings of $2.30 to $10.10 for every $1 spent on wellness initiatives. In fact, Coca-Cola’s fitness program recouped $500 per year per employee, despite the fact that only 60% of their staff was enrolled. Corporate wellness statistics from Prudential Insurance reveal a benefit expense of $312 per person enrolled in their wellness system, but $574 per non-enrolled employee.

“The Corporate Wellness Coach course is designed to teach the student how to facilitate corporate wellness programs, work with the human resources department, create a wellness culture in a company and promote health to reduce company costs and improve overall moral of the organization,” states Dr. John Spencer Ellis, the CEO of the Spencer Institute. “For the company, the benefits are obvious. Increased health care costs and sick days cripple companies to the point of needing to off-shore work to offset the costs of obese and inactive employees who drain the company’s profits. These are verifiable and frightening facts.”

With companies seeking to reduce costs, it seems a small investment in a corporate wellness coach will improve both the waste line and the bottom line. Fitness and coaching professionals can learn the details about this career training at
