Making Money as a Health Coach
“How will I make a steady income being a Health Coach?”
This question crosses the minds of most people interested in pursuing health coaching – and for good reason! Just like other entrepreneurial adventures, the thought of changing what you’re accustomed to in order to chase your passion can feel scary and intimidating.
Whether you’re transitioning from a corporate position you’re unhappy in, dreaming of having your own business, or looking to do something you love every single day, it can be stressful to think about how you are going to do it and still make enough money to live. You’ve probably wondered if it’s really possible to do both.
Well, the answer is yes! As a Health Coach, you’ll have the knowledge and credibility to help others create their own healthy and happy lives – and there’s no one way of doing this. Health Coaches often start by coaching clients one-on-one, but the opportunities don’t end there! At Integrative Nutrition, we offer the tools and resources to start your own health coaching practice and begin earning a great income while also setting your own hours and being your own boss! You’ll be able to offer a range of services that you’re truly passionate about.
By becoming a Health Coach, you gain the skills to help others in a variety of ways! You can coach groups, offer wellness programs in schools and centers, host cooking classes and demos, do speaking engagements and workshops, create downloadable or physical products, and so much more! Beyond offering a personal practice or service, Health Coaches are being hired more and more at hospitals, doctor’s offices, and wellness centers to provide clients with the assistance they need to achieve better health.
Here are a few more ways you can use your education as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach:
- Write nutrition books, general health and wellness books, cookbooks, etc.

Every Health Coach has their own unique path, but all Integrative Nutrition Health Coaches are more than just someone giving advice for what to eat and how to exercise. They are also helping hold others accountable to make lasting changes in their life!
