The IIN Approach to Health, Wellness, and Health Coaching

The world is experiencing a healthcare crisis—we have unlimited access to health information, but we've never been sicker...

  • Worldwide obesity has nearly tripled in the last 50 years.
  • Chronic diseases are currently projected to account for almost three-quarters of all deaths worldwide, such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
  • 6 in 10 Americans live with at least one chronic disease.
  • Obesity impacts 1 in 5 children and 1 in 3 adults in the U.S., costing the healthcare system $147 billion each year.

Millions of people around the world need guidance—need your guidance—to make diet and lifestyle changes to reverse these trends and transform their health and wellbeing. Health Coaches are trained to become part of the greater health care team, working alongside doctors, physicians, and other wellness professionals to provide people with the integrated care they need to live a healthy lifestyle.

Integrative Nutrition is the world's largest nutrition and health coaching school for nearly 30 years, with over 100,000 students and graduates in 175 countries.

We're the most reputable and long-standing educational institution that will prepare you to not only reach these people in need, but help them meet their health goals, transform their lives to achieve long-term health, and in the process, transform yours.

IIN takes a holistic, no-one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition and wellness.

You'll explore more than 100 dietary theories such as plant-based eating, Ayurveda, and raw foods, plus learn the life-coaching and behavior-change skills needed to become a successful Health Coach, empowering clients in your coaching sessions to reach their health goals.

We'll teach you that achieving optimal health is not just about the food on your plate.

It's also about how you nourish yourself through your relationships, spirituality, career, environment, and much more. This is the true IIN difference, giving you the confidence you need to go out into the world and change lives. Whatever your professional interests or personal goals, get an unparalleled education that will transform the health and lives of others, as well as your own.

What You'll Learn in the Health Coach Training Program

  • The role Health Coaches play in healthcare.

    From creating private coaching practices, to working alongside medical doctors, to consulting for local government on public health policy change, you’ll learn how to become part of one of the quickest growing wellness professions. You’ll also learn why Integrative Nutrition Health Coaches are bringing tremendous value to the healthcare field. They help their clients achieve true health and wellbeing and prevent chronic conditions, which gives our Health Coaches the competitive edge in the market when pursuing employment opportunities.

  • Key nutrition concepts, dietary theories, and the latest in nutrition science.

    You’ll get a holistic nutrition education that will allow you as a practicing Health Coach to coach clients around making food choices that are best for them. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition, and our Health Coaches deeply understand how to convey nutrition information through this lens.

  • Foundational coaching skills that you will refine through coaching demonstrations.

    In order to effect real behavior and lifestyle change in yourself and your clients, you’ll gain knowledge on many coaching theories and methods that you’ll put into real-life practice.

  • Business-building skills to successfully start and maintain your coaching business.

    You’ll get access to a full toolkit of business materials that teach you marketing, sales, brand awareness, networking, creating products, partnering with health care practitioners and wellness professionals, and so much more.

  • The core IIN concepts that will set your training apart from that of other Health Coaches.

    Bio-individuality and primary food are key concepts unique to the IIN coach training program, and are also fundamental to learning how to transform health. You’ll learn how to integrate these concepts into your coaching process, demonstrating to potential clients and employers that you’ve received a well-rounded education that will set you up for ultimate success.
