About My Coaches Registry

Leadership through CoachingPrevention through Wellness

For centuries, there has been an appreciation for the role of the coach in sports — an understanding that no matter how successful the athlete, the coach is essential for success. Today, literally every competitive athlete has a coach — often more than one. For beginners, the coach’s role is vital for learning and overall development. For elite athletes, the coach’s focus is on refinement of skills and enhancement of performance. Indeed, sports could not exist without the direct and ongoing role of the coach.

Consider the transformative impact on society if people (in addition to athletes) also had their own coach. Instead of a focus on sports, these coaches would focus on the “game” of life. Indeed, such individuals exist and are commonly referred to as life, health, or wellness coaches. Unfortunately, their efforts have not yet become commonplace and are often relegated to the most successful members of society. What if a program was launched with truly global reach that was authentically dedicated to creating a coaching culture? the time has come … the time is now.

The mission of The Coaches Registry is to empower individuals with the knowledge, skills, abilities, and credentialing required to apply a coaching approach dedicated to enhancing performance in work and in life.

The Coaches Registry accomplishes its mission by awarding the Professional Coach Advocate (PCA) certification.

In the beginning, there were sports coaches. This led to the development of life and wellness coaches. And now we have the PCA! Welcome to The Coaches Registry!

The Coaches Registry has developed a highly interactive four-step process that will enable you to realize your full potential and help others to do the same. This process is based upon the following facts: First, you know yourself better than anyone else. Second, once given the tools, you will become better equipped to realize your goals. Third, a process of continuous improvement is the only way to make longlasting change for yourself and to help others to do the same. So then, what does the PCA Certification Process include?

Nothing can happen until you are authentically ready and willing to act. By virtue of the fact that you are here today, you have done so — and for that we congratulate you. Step one is officially complete!


There are many ways to get better informed about life, health, and wellness coaching. Dozens of books, magazines, videos, classes, websites, blogs, etc. are widely available. The Professional Coach Advocate (PCA) is the first and only certification program dedicated to empowering individuals to take a coaching approach. Everything is based upon proven, rigorously tested science and practice, so you can be assured of receiving the best and most timely information available. During the PCA workshop, you can expect a dynamic, interactive learning process that will allow you to explore the fundamentals of coaching. You will be encouraged to think about specific concepts, try them out, and measure and improve your coaching approach.


After successful completion of the PCA Workshop, you will become a member of The Coaches Registry’s on-line PCA Network. Here you will be able to interact with other coach– minded individuals — your fellow PCAs. You will also be able to maintain communication with your Registered PCA Instructor — the professional that facilitated your PCA Workshop. And, you will be given a variety of other tools that will ensure a successful journey toward optimum wellness.


This is the part of the process where you continue down the road to optimum wellness. The Coaches Registry believes that well-being is a journey — not a destination. You will continue your journey through participation in some truly innovative programs, including the on-line PCA Network.
