Beyond education and guidance, a Health Coach keeps their client accountable each week.
Using their nutrition and coaching education, Health Coaches help their clients discover which foods and lifestyle choices makes them feel best. Most importantly, Health Coaches take a holistic approach to health, not just focusing on food, but also all the other areas of life that can support and nourish your overall health, such as career, spirituality, relationships, and environment.
Health Coaches play a pivotal role in the greater healthcare team, filling the void that is often left by doctors who don’t necessarily have time to provide nutrition and coaching guidance.
To put it simply, Health Coaches are changing the world and reversing the global healthcare crisis. Health Coaching is one of the quickest growing careers and Health Coaches are seriously in demand.
Health Coaches can work with clients one-on-one or in group settings, sell online programs and meal plans, host retreats or workshops, speak, write a book or cookbook, host corporate wellness programs, start a food product line, open a wellness center, and so much more. More and more spas, wellness centers, and food companies are hiring health coaches, too.
In addition, health coaches can work alongside other healthcare professionals such as medical doctors, chiropractors, therapists, and nurses. Health Coaches typically work in tandem with a client’s doctor to achieve a specific health outcome. In fact, more and more doctor’s offices are starting to keep health coaches on staff, and The American Medical Association encourages doctor’s offices to do so.
Questions To Ask Yourself...
Most Health Coaches become entrepreneurs, opening their own practices, hosting corporate wellness seminars, launching their own healthy food companies or restaurants, running retreats or writing books and cookbooks. Becoming an entrepreneur is no easy feat, and no matter what direction you take it, you’re going to have to put in a little blood, sweat, and tears to launch and run a successful business. (Which is why you MUST have passion).
It’s not enough to like it. You have to love it. Maybe be borderline obsessed with it. You must have a passion and curiosity about these three things in order to be a successful Health Coach.
