By working in the fitness industry, health and fitness professionals have the privilege of helping clients on a daily basis. When you take one of our specialty courses you are an important part of the healthcare continuum. On average 77% of individuals feel the physical, mental, and emotional symptoms of stress. Corporations spend approximately 3 billion a year on doctor visits and absenteeism.

The Stress Management Institute for Health and Fitness Professionals was developed to certify health and fitness professionals to instruct our stress management program (R.E.L.A.X™.). Students will learn how to create customized stress management programs using aromatherapy, Mindfulness Meditation, Reflective Meditation, the Mindful Stretch™ class and blending stress management with personal training. When you become certified you will either become a Stress Management Exercise Specialist™, Holistic Stress Management Specialist™ or a Holistic Stress Management Consultant™.

All of our courses are hybrid and will consist of a two day in person workshop and at home self-study. The two day workshop is from 8:30 am to 6:00 pm and will conclude with a two hour retreat. Your workshop instructor will contact you to go over what to expect before your workshop begins. We also ask that you fill out our intake form and return it to us.
