  • “Coach U’s Fast Track program was my game changer; I left our 6-days of virtual zoom with amazing connections, knowledge, skills, confidence and the tools to begin building my coaching practice. Our two teachers ensured we all had fun while learning coaching models and techniques and challenged us to practice and build our coaching muscles. I’m beyond thankful for the program and have since enrolled in the second program, Professional Essentials”
