Create a Thriving Health Coaching Practice
Becoming a Health Coach will allow you to work one-on-one with clients on issues related to their health, nutrition, and lifestyle. Ultimately, you will provide the guidance and support that they need to make sustainable changes in their diet, exercise routine, relationships, daily practice, and career. You will be able to see the results of your health coaching as your clients become happier and healthier.
Integrative Nutrition graduates are highly respected by clients and healthcare providers. With Health Coach certification, they receive referrals and are eagerly invited to work in medical offices, chiropractic clinics and other professional settings.

Building a successful health coaching practice is like starting any new business. It takes focused awareness, perseverance, commitment and motivation. Included in your tuition is our Fast Track business training program, where we show you how to reach your maximum income potential with step-by-step instruction that guarantees your success as a Health Coach.
While most of our graduates launch full-time health coaching practices, others choose to be part-time Health Coaches so that they have time for other endeavors like parenthood, remaining in their current job, or creating other businesses. As a Health Coach, you can decide whether you want to create a full-time practice or if you prefer to use it to generate supplementary income as a flexible, part-time option. Either way, we will give you all the skills and knowledge to reach your goals.
