Welcome To The HSN MentalFit Course

The Story Behind MentalFit

With Mental Illness on the rise, Nicole saw a need to equip coaches and gym owners with the fundamental skills to address mental health when coaching clients. After listening to Dr. Christina Migliara speak, Nicole knew she could help. The two worked together to provide webinars, and live trainings for gym owners, but it wasn’t enough.

In 2022, they decided to partner together to build the MentalFit Course to provide gym owners and coaches with a deeper understanding of mental health, mental illness, and how to prioritize mental health for yourself and your clients so that you can transform lives in a greater way.

The MentalFit Course was written by Dr. Christina Migliara but has support from her TheraFit team with the wrap-up calls.
