Why IIN is Your Best Choice for Coaching Certification

Share this Article:

If you’re considering a career in coaching, deciding which educational experience will completely transform your personal and professional life is easier than it sounds: go with the best! 

There are many reasons a coach training program can rise above the others, but the top reasons include: 

  1. It is well-respected and accredited 
  2. It will help you excel on your unique growth path 
  3. It can improve your health holistically from the inside out 
  4. It offers accessible and dynamic learning options 
  5. It creates expansive opportunities for your career and income 

At the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN), we deliver on all five reasons with our coaching offerings. Over the last 30 years, we have changed the lives of thousands of people worldwide, guiding them with the expert support of esteemed faculty members who teach topics ranging from functional medicine to mind-body awareness to wellness entrepreneurship.

You are here reading this at the perfect time. To help you feel confident in your final decision, we’re here to walk you through the ways in which IIN remains the number one choice for coach certification programs with The Health Coach Training Program and The Chopra Coaching Certification

Globally Recognized and Expert-Created Curriculum

In our Health Coach Training Program, the curriculum spans seven key pillars: physical health, nutrition, mental health, emotional health, spirituality, coaching skills, and business and marketing. To receive the broadest yet most comprehensive understanding of holistic health, these pillars will allow you to dive into important holistic health topics as well as how to share what you learn with others to become a successful Health Coach. You will learn from over 95 visiting faculty who are experts in their fields and have created content exclusively for The Health Coach Training Program.

In The Chopra Coaching Certification, you will learn a mind-body-spirit approach to coaching based in positive psychology, neuroscience, ancient wisdom traditions, and Dr. Deepak Chopra's research and consciousness-based philosophies. In a curriculum curated by Dr. Chopra alongside two expert faculty members, you will walk away with a clear understanding of how to apply coaching methodologies combined with Ayurvedic tools to become a successful Life Coach. 

In both programs, our combination of unparalleled support with immersive practice makes it possible for you to become a well-trained coach ready to change lives! 

Coach Yourself to Coach Others 

With each program, you will personalize your own learning experience to further facilitate an understanding of the material, including how to coach yourself to healing that can then translate into coaching others on their own journeys.  

In The Health Coach Training Program, you will learn our signature IINtegrative Coaching MethodTM, a framework that consists of gold-standard coaching techniques as well as IIN core concepts that empower you to embody coaching as a lifestyle. Using this method, you will be prepared to inspire others to find their own version of optimal well-being, as well as find the ways of eating and living that allow you to find true nourishment.

The Chopra Coaching Certification will teach you the four cornerstones of The Chopra Coaching Model: purpose, intention, meaning, and shadow. With a strong grounding in self-awareness and tools to help facilitate transformation, you will learn how to integrate mind, body, and spirit, and release limiting beliefs and old stories that are holding you back from living your best life. 

Get Prepared for NBHWC Board Certification or the Next Step in Your Career 

Depending on your coaching aspirations, each program will set you up for success. 

The Health Coach Training Program is the program that started the health coaching industry 30 years ago and has since become the most globally recognized and respected health coaching program. With your Health Coach Training Program education, you gain access to a wide variety of opportunities to further your education, such as receiving continuing education units (CEUs), as well as excelling in your career with memberships to various global organizations.

The Chopra Coaching Certification is NBHWC-approved, which means upon successful completion of the program, you can apply and sit for the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching board certification exam. Board certification is not required to coach; however, many employers look to this credential to confirm one’s dedication to the profession as well as their proficiency in key coaching skills. If you take The Health Coach Training Program and also wish to receive board certification, you can do so by taking the Coaching Intensive Practicum.

Amplify Your Existing Career in Healthcare 

Both Health and Life Coaches add value to the greater healthcare system, supporting people in setting and reaching goals that contribute to their overall well-being. We have story after story of IIN graduates who enrolled specifically because they wanted to add coaching services or a deeper understanding of holistic health to their existing healthcare careers such as nurses and functional medicine practitioners

Personal trainers, fitness instructors, and yoga teachers can also add coaching services to their careers in order to better serve their clients. While they may not be considered part of the traditional healthcare model, their work to guide people towards lifestyle change will have a direct impact on their health outcomes which subsequently contributes to reduced healthcare costs.
