Our Health Coach Program

What is a Health Coach?

A Health Coach is a supportive mentor who helps clients feel their best through food and lifestyle changes and personalized, one-on-one encouragement.

What makes a Health Coach unique?

To live a vibrant life, we all need holistic support. And as a Health Coach, that guidance and accountability – from exercise and nutrition to relationships, career, and spirituality – is exactly what you’ll offer your clients.

What do Health Coaches actually do?

One of the great benefits of the Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching education is the incredible diversity of career options that are available to you. Graduates of our health coaching program have gone on to become acclaimed holistic health authors, partner with doctors and physicians, become registered dietitians, open healthy juiceries and restaurants, start health and wellness businesses, and (of course) offer their own private health coaching services. In other words, a health coach certificate is one of the most versatile professional paths - and the fastest growing field in healthcare - you can pursue.

If you do choose to become a Health Coach, what can you expect? While your day-to-day responsibilities may vary widely, your coaching sessions will ultimately revolve around one thing: helping your clients achieve their unique health goals. This can mean exercise and physical activity, weight loss, better stress management, holistic nutrition, chronic disease management, and more.

How is Integrative Nutrition different?

Unlike many mainstream approaches to health and wellness, Integrative Nutrition begins with a philosophy we call bio-individuality. This is simply the understanding that each of us is radically unique. Our physical, mental, emotional, and nutritional needs are one-of-a-kind. What you define as good health – and the path you take to get there – may not work for anyone else.

That’s why every Health Coach who emerges from the Integrative Nutrition Health Coach Training Program learns to put bio-individuality into practice. Rather than pushing cookie-cutter, one-size-fits all wellness methods, Health Coaches take a deeply personalized approach with every single client.

And of course, we make sure you’re equipped with every tool you need to develop those unique and personalized coaching skills. In your education journey with Integrative Nutrition, you’ll explore over 100 different dietary theories, along with some crucial concepts (like primary food), which will prove useful throughout your career.

We’re Mission Driven

  • We’re proud to say that Integrative Nutrition is the largest online health school in the world with over 100,000 wellness coaching students in over 150 countries around the world. But back in 1992, our Health Coach Training Program was just a small group of students in a rented kitchen in New York City. How did our coach training program grow so rapidly and attain such world renown? We think it’s because we’re driven by a mission.
  • At Integrative Nutrition, we really do believe that food changes everything. By learning and teaching the deep values of holistic nutrition, we’re building a bottom-up movement to reverse the global health crisis. This mission keeps us passionate and growing. It’s why our team includes over 100 of the world’s leading educators, researchers, and experts in nutrition and health behavior. It’s all part of the ripple effect – our vision for spreading positive change in the world as each one of us works toward true health and holistic self-improvement.
  • Integrative Nutrition was founded in 1992 by Joshua Rosenthal, a pioneering thinker who first developed the concept of “health coaching.” At the time, holistic wellness and nutrition didn’t have the popular appeal they do today. But since then, Joshua’s vision – that holistic wellness and nutrition are the foundation of health and happiness – has become a mainstream value. We’re honored to be at the center of this growing movement, and we can’t wait to see what the next decade holds.
