The Integrative Nutrition Health Coach Experience

We created the field of health coaching. For nearly 30 years, our global community has grown to over 100,000 students and graduates in 175 countries. Graduates of Integrative Nutrition’s Health Coach Training Program learn all about holistic health and the many factors that influence our well-being aside from just the food we eat, such as the environment where we live and the relationships we foster. You’ll earn a comprehensive health education from the most respected online health coaching and nutrition school in the world and be ready to hit the ground running in your health coaching career or whatever wellness career path you choose.

The Demand for Health Coaches

Health Coaches play an integral role in preventive care. As the health of the population continues to decline due to chronic disease, there are gaps that must be filled in the current healthcare system. Doctors receive less than 25 hours of nutrition training during their four years of medical school, and that’s if the school even requires nutrition programming (about 80% of medical schools have no such requirement). Doctors and physicians also have little time to spend with patients, who are left to figure out how to implement important lifestyle changes that are critical to improving their health. That’s where Health and Wellness Coaches come in; combining their coaching skills, such as active listening and high-mileage questions, with their holistic and personalized approach, Health Coaches help people transform their health and reach their health goals.

We Are on the Cutting Edge of a Health Revolution!

Chronic diseases, especially those that are preventable through lifestyle changes, are the epidemic of our generation. People desperately need guidance to find their way back to health. That’s where YOU come in. With a health coaching certificate, you will have the knowledge and skills you need to lead your clients to greater health and happiness and create a lucrative career with the utmost flexibility.

How Long It Takes to Earn Your Health Coach Certificate

We have two training program options to become a Health Coach. Our one-year program (English and Spanish-supported) is the most popular as it allows students to balance their health education with other obligations, whether working full-time or taking care of a family. We also have a six-month accelerated program (English and Spanish-supported) for those able to dedicate the extra time to their coursework. The programs contain the same information, and the Health Coach certificate earned at the end is also the same.

The Path to Health Coach Certification

Your certificate will demonstrate the successful completion of a rigorous program that’s licensed by the New York State Department of Education and approved by the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching (NBHWC). As an IIN graduate, you can become a certified Health Coach by completing a top-up course – called the Coaching Intensive Practicum – and then sitting for and passing the NBHWC certification exam, the gold standard in health coach certification. We understand that earning a third-party-verified certification is important to many Health Coaches as it’s further validation of our education and credentials. We’re proud to offer this path to our graduates and accelerate our mission to champion the incredible work of Health Coaches in the United States and beyond.

Health Coaches Are Needed Now More Than Ever!

As more awareness and energy is dedicated to preventive care, health and wellness coaching is seen as a vital aspect of creating and sustaining healthy lifestyle changes. Isn’t it amazing that the world is finally catching up? Holistic Health Coaches are becoming recognized as essential and integral parts of people’s health and well-being, working alongside other wellness professionals, such as functional medicine doctors and physicians, to reverse the global health crisis and ignite real positive change.
