This is a good question. Why become a health coach?
So lets look at the obvious, health. We are fast becoming a very unhealthy world with rapid increases in obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, cancer and other chronic diseases. Our waistlines are increasing while our life expectancy is decreasing. We are approaching the point where our children will no longer outlive us! These are sad and frightening facts! So when it comes to health, we as health coaches are definitely needed.
Career. I think the latest estimates say there is 1 health coach for every 175,000 people (approximately), so demand is high and there’s no worry about saturating the marketplace. As a health coach you can have location freedom, you can choose your own working hours, your own working location (an office, the coffee shop, your kitchen, your lounge etc) and your earning potential is very good indeed giving you a very comfortable living with multiple revenue-streams (your practice, e-books, programs).
I have chosen the Institute of Integrative Nutrition to study with. The program certainly isn’t the cheapest but I believe it’s the best. You’re taught not just to look at the usual things like food and exercise, you also cover what’s called Primary Foods which nourish your soul and your emotions. Primary Foods are things like career, relationships, spiritual practice and all those things that make us happy, fulfilled and stress-free. It’s a holistic way of looking at health and putting it simply, it works, it works very well!
The speakers who are part of the course material are a literal who’s-who is health and well-being. Deepak Chopra, David Wolfe, Joel Furhman, Mark Hyman, Gabrielle Bernstein, Danielle LaPorte to name just a few.
