You want to make a career change and do work that nourishes you and helps the world, but you’re afraid you won’t make money. Does this sound like you? Well the good news is, with the right training, a little creativity, and a whole lot of drive, you can the work you love and earn a great income! 

The health coaching field is booming and there are tons of ways to replace or surpass your current income with a Health Coach salary. 

Integrative Nutrition graduates hit the ground running with the training they receive in business development, marketing, and branding. They are given professional business tools and proven programs to offer their clients so that they are able to earn a competitive Health Coach salary from the get-go. 

Here are some of the ways Health Coaches earn a thriving income while doing the work they love! 

One-on-one coaching: Whether in person or virtual coaching, you are trained to earn a Health Coach salary offering one-on-one coaching. Integrative Nutrition teaches graduates to lead clients through a 6-month program, consisting of two 50 minute sessions each month where you teach your clients to make incremental lifestyle and diet changes that will last them a lifetime.  The typical cost for these sessions is $100 an hour, but some IIN graduates charge almost five times that amount. The more experience you have, the more you will make! 

Group coaching: This is the perfect way to help anyone who needs you, no matter their income level, but still earn a great salary. Typically you charge half of what you would for your one-on-one sessions when someone joins your group. The more people in your group, the more you earn! This is a great way to have a work life balance: work less time, make more money, help more people. It’s a win-win!

Online programs: Many people create online programs specialized to help their niche market. Whether these are offered a few times a year, or sign up is on an ongoing basis, this is a powerful way to make money. Create the content once and you can offer the program again and again, while making money, literally, in your sleep. 

Write a book: Many graduates of IIN are published authors thanks to the IIN Launch your Dream Book Course. Graduates have written cookbooks, diet and lifestyle books, books about their own health journey, and more. With the rise in popularity of e-books, it’s easier than ever to get your story out there and earn money with the click of a button! 

Develop a product line: IIN graduates have created raw chocolate companies, vegan baking lines, natural skin care companies and so much more. There are many options out there and the business savvy you gain in the Integrative Nutrition Health Coach Training Program will give help you make your dreams a reality. 

Other ways to earn a Health Coach salary include but are certainly not limited to:

  • Leading wellness workshops
  • Running retreats
  • Providing health food store tours
  • Teaching healthy cooking classes
  • Starting a juice bar, café, or restaurant
  • Partner up with other practitioners like doctors or chiropractors, or combine this work with your current profession. 

Whether you are introverted, extroverted, tech savvy or not, there’s a way to earn a healthy living! With so many options out there, the sky really is the limit. How would you apply your training as a Health Coach?
