Before you become a health coach, there are a few things to consider to determine if it’s right for you. I’ve been a certified health coach for over 5 years, so let me share some insights and tips.

The career field of health coaching is growing. And while some health coaches decide to coach clients individually, others like myself, use their health coaching certification as a jumping off point for creating cookbooks, food products, wellness-centered brands, and online businesses.

In today’s video I’m sharing a few reasons why it makes sense to pursue health coaching. I also have more information in the blog posts linked below. I hope you find this information helpful!

I received my health coaching certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. You can take a sample class and learn more here:

    I am not socially active. So is it good to become a health coach. How to get the first lead or client when we are not socially active or to continue as a health coach.

    Great Video! Sorry for chiming in, I would love your opinion. Have you heard the talk about – Taparton Casting Hives Takeover (just google it)? It is a great one of a kind product for becoming a certified life-optimization coach and make money minus the normal expense. Ive heard some great things about it and my mate got amazing results with it.

    I’ve worked for over 10 years in Pharmaceutcals sales. I always had an interest in health and wellness. I started my masters in nutrition a few years ago, but I had to stop due to brain aneurism that was an incidental finding…had many challenges which included 3 surgeries. Now after recovering I want to revisit my goal. Now I’m looking into becoming a health coach. We’ll see where I land but I do now I want help people.

    As a Certified Fitness Trainer and Specialist in Fitness Nutrition, I have been wondering how to tie both of these certifications together, and I think this could be it. Thank you for sharing.

  6. Geraldine Baroga on April 10, 2021 at 1:45 am

    You look beautiful that colour… is it olive? Plus you speak well, and the content of the video is great. Thank you.

  10. Cheryl Findeisen on April 10, 2021 at 1:50 am

    Great information!! I have for several years thought of becoming one even if only to get myself into better health! I enjoy helping others so definitely something to think about!

  11. Maria on April 10, 2021 at 1:54 am

    I became a Health Coach in IIN because of you LIsa!!!!! I found your testimonies and loved them, now I am so happy to live a healthier life and I feel WAY better than before. Thank you LIsa!!! Love all your feed and recipes, you are such a nice person!

  12. Sweet and Petite Duo on April 10, 2021 at 1:55 am

    Where did you purchase your sofa? Been looking for something like this for awhile.

  13. A H on April 10, 2021 at 1:57 am

    You are kind and very polite. Thank you for all the information.

  14. Tara B on April 10, 2021 at 1:57 am

    My cat has bad gas tonight, can’t even focus on this video because of the smell.

  15. Mehwish Ghauri on April 10, 2021 at 2:00 am

    Is the work you explained in the video that you do is very time consuming? When you started off how much time you were spending building your business on daily basis?

  16. Rojen Mourad on April 10, 2021 at 2:01 am

    where can i study to become heath coach

  20. tsuyuy on April 10, 2021 at 2:04 am

    It’s unfortunate that i didn’t see any of your videos in my feed since a long time!! I just remembered your channel and i thought i wasn’t subscribed, but I’m surprised to see that even the ball is activated, even so none of your videos was suggested to me.

  21. R &R on April 10, 2021 at 2:06 am

    You’re such an inspiration! This is really helpful insight – thanks so much. Also, Netflix or YouTube needs to give you your own show! Your channel for health/wellness/lifestyle is like what Marie Kondo is for cleaning ❤️

  22. Yolanda Gallizzi on April 10, 2021 at 2:06 am

    Hello, I wanted to know after completing you IIN Certification, did you have your website in place already? What I’m trying to say were you completely ready with website, FB, blog, youtube, recipes, ect…, or did you work on all those things during or after going live per say? How ready were you? I feel like i am never ready because I need this and that…

  23. Laarnie Diego on April 10, 2021 at 2:06 am

    I watch your video..and You inspired me

  24. knatay1 on April 10, 2021 at 2:07 am

    I clicked the link but am wondering how much the program costs. I didn’t see anything on the website and have no clue if something like this is $500, $5000 or even $50,000…can anyone help? I don’t want to go through speaking with an admissions person etc…if it’s just completely out of my scope

  25. Paola Rossy on April 10, 2021 at 2:07 am

    What we need are more dietitians and experts!!

  26. MyPammer on April 10, 2021 at 2:08 am

    Perfect timing! Since I was laid low, similar to your experience, and being burned out by my corporate job, I wondered what I could do to help other people not end up where I did with their health. Thank you so much.

  27. Sarah Mostrey on April 10, 2021 at 2:08 am

    Hi, I love your posts. I do wish you would make more "modular mealpreps". I find planning everything out not possible at all, nor eating the same thing for a week. So I love your combination of mealprep with fresh. I regret there are only 4 of them.

  28. Aimer Cab on April 10, 2021 at 2:12 am

    I’m currently going through the course at IIN.
    Love your channel ❤️

  29. Sarah Wynne on April 10, 2021 at 2:13 am

    I just came across your channel and I am LOVING your content. Thank you for sharing!

  30. FrugalOverFifty on April 10, 2021 at 2:13 am

    This is so interesting – thank you for sharing this and opening my eyes to a whole new world (cue Disney song!). This sounds like a wonderful way to become healthier and share knowledge about healthier living with others. Thank you for bring your wisdom and all of your recipes to us. (I made your recent salsa recipe from the taco salad video and became obsessed. Might or might not have eaten it multiple times a day until it was gone. Must make more!)

  31. Ruth St-Martin on April 10, 2021 at 2:16 am

    I want to become a Health Coach! But im just curious about what is the difference between a Certified Health Coach to a having a Diploma related to Health and Wellness?

    I can’t decide what way im going to do first and what is relevant. Any advice?

  32. Miss Datoo on April 10, 2021 at 2:20 am

    Do I need prior education? I have no experience in the healthcare field. I only have a diploma in Jewelry Design, which is completely different from health coaching.

  33. The Tan Family on April 10, 2021 at 2:23 am

    i come across your video it has really motivated am considering of becoming a health coach hope u can help

  34. Kat The Scribe on April 10, 2021 at 2:24 am

    OMG serendipity. I have been considering IIN for years now, but never had the time to really focus on the classes, or to figure out the money angel. If you vouch for them, I will look into them again. I’ve been interested in nutrition and herbs since I was a teenager, and would like to coach people and also create my own line of vitamins and supplements. Thanks so much for doing this video!!

  35. Kat coookiess on April 10, 2021 at 2:24 am

    Love it

    Love it all

  36. Michelle Moyle on April 10, 2021 at 2:25 am

    Can’t wait to start my course with IIN in July! Love what you do Lisa, your passion for health and wellness is contagious. ☺️

  37. Pauline Gray on April 10, 2021 at 2:25 am

    Thank you Lisa. As long as there are health coaches the human race will survive.

    Hi, I am from Maldives. And warm greetings from this paradise. Due to the health condition I had to study on what I could do to help myself by healthy eating. And then I came to know about AIP diet. I have successfully controlled my condition by eating whole foods and avoiding inflammatory things. I may not be at 100% still but healed myself pretty well.
    Now that I use to read, watch and study about healthy meals specially AIP, I am interested in promoting healthy eating, tell others, explain them well and assist them to achieve by following up their conditions. To do that I think I will need a training to become a coach. And since we don’t have such training available here, how am I going to get such a training online. Would you guide me to the proper channel and help me to become a health coach.
    I can enroll if there are any institutions or online schools with affordable programs to finish training in a short period. Can you do that for me?

  39. Every Healthy Bite on April 10, 2021 at 2:30 am

    That’s so interesting! And as you said, not only for individual coaching but also for any businesses associated with health. Very useful information. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    Thank you for this! ✨
