In my definition, wellness coaching is a mixture of positive thinking, coaching psychology, and behavioral psychology for health & fitness related behavior change (e.g., initiation of regular exercise habits and adherance, improvement of lifestyle and diet ... etc)
The fundamental concept of wellness coaching will be applicable to various aspects of life as well. And my role in wellness coaching and fitness instruction is to boost people's forward looking attitude for creating a difference and preferable change in their lives
I would like to embark on this profound journey into life and living arts together with you

Yoshi's thought about fitness and wellness coaching
In the field of health & Fitness, technical aspect such as exercise tehnque, nutritional tips... etc and psychological/motivational aspect such as how to boost your forward looking attitude toward goals should be the both sides of a coin, and the both should complement each other. That kind of integrated perspective is my ideal in fitness lifestyle and wellness coaching.
You don't need to think of my wellness coaching service so seriously from the beginning. Basically, I would like to be a good listener of your recent experience, current concern, and a dilemma/discrepancy between where you are now and your ideal state/goal. I'm glad if I can be of some help for you to proceed and overcome some hurdles that you encounter on the way to your destination.
My personal experiences are ... I comleted a master's course and a post-graduate diploma course while working as a fitness instructor. Although my native language is Japanese, I acquired English language skills to the level of a certified translator & tourguide through many years of practice. In 2016, I earned the certification of Health & Wellness Coach as the first person in Japan. And in 2017, I earned the crendential of Certified Special Population Specialist as the first person in Asia. It's my pleasure if these my experiences are useful for you to make a desirable change in your everyday life, especially in health & fitness, and for people who are learning English as a foreign language. Of course, if you are learning Japanese, I can be your talking partner as well ! I'm living in Shizuoka-city, Japan, which is 100 miles southwest of Tokyo. I'm available on skype from anywhere in the world !
