An Immersive Training Experience...

In a world where virtual meetings have become common place, there is a strong desire amongst our students to connect and learn in a face-to-face environment that will allow them to truly integrate theoretical with practical health and wellness coach training. We have been listening and are excited to host our next Intensive Residential Coach Training Program on the Gold Coast in March 2024.

Over 4 1/2 days we will be taking you through the core coaching competency training units that are within all our qualification courses, fast tracking this section of your studies that would typically take 6 months to complete. This retreat can potentially reduce your overall qualification time by 4 to 5 months, allowing you to gain your certification and start working sooner.

Who this retreat is for:

Intensive Residential Location

Our upcoming intensive residential will be hosted at the recently built Rydges Gold Coast, a mere minutes’ walk from the Gold Coast airport and overlooking the beautiful Tugun and Kirra beaches.

Stroll to the beachfront that is only a 5 minute walk away, or relax by the 25m outdoor landscaped resort style swimming pool after an immersive training day with us. Work out in the fully equipped gym with cardio machines overlooking the airport runway.

Testimonials and Support

"I think this is an amazing opportunity and one I would have taken up. I came into the Wellness Coaching Professional Certificate with over 20 years in the Fitness and Wellness Industry, as a trained Ex Physiologist and PE/health teacher. So whilst it was awesome absorbing and refreshing my understanding of the content each week, my ultimate goal in taking up the course was to understand and practice a coaching structure that worked. I have participated in a few retreats over the past 3 years and whilst they are intensive they are a great way to learn and integrate the work whilst in the company of other like-minded souls.”
