Default C.H.E.K or Spencer Institute Lifestyle Coach programs?

I was just looking into applying for a personal trainer job at one of the nicest gyms around my area. I have the ACE certifications and would really love to get a Master's in nutrition at some point but not anytime soon. Anyway, they also prefer someone with a Holistic Lifestyle Coach certification and I'm trying to research it a bit more. The two I found were the CHECK (corrective holistic exercise kinesiology) Institute and the Spencer Institute that offer this. Anyone have any knowledge or experience with either program or something else?

Thanks!

I have been to a couple of Paul Chek's workshops, read one of his books and have a couple of his homestudies. Man that man is smart. I find his information really, really good. That being said I can not live the life he advocates. It is just too much for me. I have applied many of his principles and been really pleased with the results. I had thought of being a Chek practitioner, but ultimately the cost was too great and I would not have the client base that requires such specialized training to offset the cost. I am glad to hear there are gyms out there that see the benefit of this type of training.

Good luck,

Shayne
