Brain Fitness Coach Certification
Help Your Clients Maximize Brain Health, Focus, Memory & Power
The professional training course is designed for new and experienced health, personal development, fitness, holistic, wellness and medical professionals.
This educational program is designed to give you a complete understanding of how the brain is optimized by exercise, nutrition, environment and lifestyle factors. We also devote much of this training to understanding how our brains drive some of our behaviors that are less healthy. You will learn the basic neuroanatomy of the brain, with details that emphasize the cerebral cortex and the function of the 4 lobes (frontal, temporal, parietal and occipital) that make us decidedly human.
Cellular level actions are highly active and specialized in the brain, and neurotransmitters influence everything from mood to emotional regulation through synapses in the brain. While there are up to 100 neurotransmitters in the body, we explore the most commonly referenced neurotransmitters, including dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin and GABA, and the effects that low levels of these chemicals have on brain and body function.
After you complete this training and earn your certification, you will confidently support the health, fitness and wellness for your clients. For you, the Certified Brain Fitness Coach, it is vital that you know how thoughts influence beliefs and behaviors to allow your client to become a co-creator of their own life and successfully achieve their outcome goals.
Having knowledge about the conscious, subconscious and unconscious mind allows coaches to understand how the mind operates – we take this one step further by considering the optimal methods to apply this knowledge in your coaching designs. This can include anything from the transformative impact of meditation on our brain and body, and how it can place us in alignment with the Schumann Resonance - or Earth’s natural frequency - to supplementation, which help support health and wellness.

Results we have
Learning life coaching at the Spencer Institute has been a great way for me to increase my business base. I really liked that I could work full time while learning life coaching on my own time schedule. Not only do I now have coaching clients, but I also attract more psychotherapy clients who choose me because I can do coaching in addition to psychotherapy.
The Spencer Institute Coaching programs are informative while being exciting and cutting edge. Their variety of approaches to coaching holistically keeps my business fresh and me coming back for more.
I am a lifelong learner, and firmly believe no matter how much we know, we can always discover more!! My brother told me about Spencer Institute, and I thank him because it really amped up my skills in coaching clients. Being a busy mom, I absolutely loved the distance learning since it fits with my hectic schedule, and I was able to do the courses at my own pace!
I completed the personal fitness chef, fitness nutrition coach and kid’s nutrition specialist programs (some from NESTA) and I am so glad that I did. Most recently, I’ve been giving talks on healthy snacking to children and I am finding that it complements my cooking schedule. It’s a nice complement to the work I do in the kitchen. I just wanted to say thanks!
