How To Become A Health Coach And Start A Solo Business

1. Become More Complete In Your Approach

2. Include Mental Health Into The Picture As Well

3. Get Certified

  • The American Council on Exercise (ACE Fitness) has a great course on being a health coach.
  • Strengthscape’s Certified Behavioral Consultants course will make you a psychologist but will help you develop an understanding of behaviors. This in turn can help develop confidence when you recommend a therapist to your clients.
  • The National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) has a course on becoming a nutrition coach that can add to your arsenal of health coach-related topics.
  • Finally, Verywell Fit lists down some of the best health coach-related programs available in the market.

4. Apply Your Advice…. To Yourself

5. Do Things Differently Online

  • Website Design & Content: Antranik’s portal is free of gimmicky transformation claims and false promises. The fitness expert has a simple website, with achievable goals. His plans focus on overall body wellness.
  • Contribute Free Content (That’s Actually Helpful): Don’t peddle half-baked content seeking answers. Instead, contribute to health communities on Reddit. Give legitimate advice. People who don’t have the resources will appreciate you and people who do have the means will look for your one on one services.

6. Keep Up With The Health Industry

  • University Health News
  • Health Literature Exchange | WHO
  • Health Magazine
  • Psychology Today
  • Men’s Health & Women’s Health

7. Build Relationships With Vendors

  • Organic food centers/ Farmer’s Markets
  • Gyms & Training Facilities
  • Wellness centers
  • Group activity and health workshop organizers
  • Coaches and trainers for certain sports
