A Wealth of Opportunities

You can open your own practice as a health coaching, providing one-on-one guidance to individuals desiring a healthier lifestyle. You will also be trained to facilitate group sessions and to work directly with medical professionals to help guide their patients into better eating and lifestyle behaviors.

Possible career options for health coaches include:

  • Coaching clients in healthy lifestyle and eating habits to meet their nutritional and weight management goals.
  • Designing a nutritional strategy for clients that has a greater and long-lasting effect by engaging the subconscious mind.
  • Providing private counseling and strategic services for individuals with weight issues, lack of energy or who have been diagnosed with physical illness, in cooperation with the client’s physician.
  • Demonstrating, marketing, representing, or selling products for vitamin, mineral and supplement distributors who rely on informed and educated consultants.
  • Offering services to corporate wellness centers that desire health-enhancing consulting and classes for their staff and employees. The Affordable Health Care Act signed into law provides incentives for employers who provide these kinds of programs to their employees. This will be one of the fastest growing fields in the next few years.
  • Consulting for diet centers and weight management organizations needing educated professionals to assist in management of clients, facilities and support meetings. The facility may have a current client base that you can consult with to help them obtain their goals
  • Speaking and lecturing at schools, recreation centers, community centers and special groups that seek information regarding nutrition and optimal health.
  • Conducting group and/or individual training and counseling to staff and patient base for medical professionals and centers specializing in integrative medicine.

The Career Market

  • Natural and organic food and beverages sales totaled over $40 billion.
  • U.S. consumer sales of nutrition products totaled more than $110 billion.
  • The weight loss and diet control industry was approximately $60 billion dollars.
  • 69% of Americans used some form of complementary and/or alternative medicine in the last year. There are 50% more visits per year to CAM practitioners than to traditional medicine practitioners.
  • Approximately 70% of American adults are concerned about their weight and more than half (53%) are actively trying to lose weight.
  • The single highest response in a recent PWC Survey indicated that employers planned to spend money expanding or improving wellness programs inside the United States (67%). 76% of survey participants (up from 69% two years earlier) and 85% of large employers (>5,000 lives) now offer some form of wellness program to eligible individuals.
Our Holistic Health and Life Coaching Certification is a multi-dimensional course covering multiple aspects of the mind body and psyche. The Natural Wellness Academy offers a fully integrative approach to coaching – one that helps your clients align and integrate on many levels. Healing is a process, not an event. Our philosophy recognizes that healing must take place on all levels – body, mind and spirit.
