What is a Health Coach?
A health coach works as a mentor to inspire their clients to make positive dietary and lifestyle changes. Health coaches educate and motivate clients to create real change in their health, setting specific goals and ensuring clients stay motivated. A health coach is trained in human behaviour, how the body works, communication and coaching skills, nutrition and fitness. This holistic approach to wellness helps people reach their health goals in a sustainable way so they achieve long-term health.

Why become a Health Coach?
It’s a significant time to become a health coach and be part of the world of wellness. Chronic diseases are at an all-time high, we’re more stressed than ever and conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure are damaging people’s health. A health coach has the ability to change someone’s health, improving the way they live their life.
Here’s 5 reasons to become a health coach in 2020:
- #1 – Doctors do not have enough time to help the hundreds of patients that walk through their doors. They also don’t have sufficient training to assist people to make dietary and lifestyle changes. Health coaches do. Health coaches can work alongside existing healthcare practitioners to make a real difference to someone’s life.
- #2 – Become your own boss and leave the rat race behind. Set your own schedule and work from wherever you like, whenever you want.
- #3 – Health coaching is a booming industry and it will continue to grow over the next ten years. Health coaching services are valued at $6.14 billion annually; it’s estimated to grow to $7.85 billion by 2022. Now is perfect time to become a health coach!
- #4 – Limitless career opportunities. Becoming a health coach opens so many doors. You can consult one-to-one, create group programmes, write a book, be a corporate consultant or launch your own health products – the world is your oyster.
- #5 – A fulfilling career that changes lives. Not only will you be able to improve your own health and help loved ones with theirs, you’ll be able to support people suffering from an array of health conditions.
