Y Be Fit is managed by students yet operates a very professional atmosphere. Clients expect health coaches to know what they are talking about and be confident in their advice. Although much of this comes with time and experience, new interns are expected to have a basic understanding of health and lifestyle principles. Candidates who are accepted for an interview will be asked to describe some of these principles. To help potential interns prepare for the interview, the following document has been provided.
