Time To Take A Closer Look At Health Coaching As Your Next Career

Companies like Google, Motorola and UnitedHealthCare are employing web-based health coaches everyday to address the problems of  healthcare directly. Because of the demand, there is a shortage of good qualified health coaches.


Could this be the next billion dollar business?


Health coaching is changing healthcare because it helps people not to get sick in the first place.


Web-based coaching allows almost anyone to quickly build a professional coaching practice/income and deliver excellent coaching.  We provide a teleconference call/webinar that will show you exactly how.  You can be a successful health coach without any selling, prospecting, or using any persuasive techniques.

Health Coaching Is Catching On

I just reviewed a recent article which had the following title:

Health coaches catch on

Here are a few excerpts:

“There are many more job opportunities available for health coaches these days as corporations, insurance companies, medical centers and individuals are beginning to hire them,”


“On average, health coaches earn between $100 and $150 per hour, and those who are savvy marketers can earn up to six-figure salaries. But it’s more than money that draws most people into the field. They are dissatisfied in some way with their own lives. Becoming healthy, shedding weight and having more energy are their personal goals, which eventually become the selling point of their services.”


The person interviewed in the article was quoted:  “One tip he often gives clients is to start each morning with breathing exercises. His website promises such results as improving confidence and self-esteem, as well as developing healthy, lasting relationships. He charges between $395 and $495 per month for sessions, or $175 to $250 an hour. Corporate workshops garner $500 per hour.”

What Sets our Training Above the Rest

One of my recent posts described our relationship with BioSignia,  the creator of the Know Your Number HealthScore featured on NBC’s hit TV show, The Biggest Loser.

This relationship sets our training far above other health coach training programs.

As a health coach who can work with a client who “knows his number”,  you can work on a plan and have measurable results.

Of course, as a trained health coach, you know that you do not want to change too much all at once.

Rather, you will work with your client to:

  1. Take a number of small steps, and have accountability along the way.

  2. Identify his/her bad habits.   Then work with your client and get him to the point where he understands why he  needs to change them.   He can then take ownership of these habits, and optionally,  ask for support from family, friends, co-workers and doctors.

  3. Help your client find something that helps to motivate him when the going gets tough.

  4. As a health coach, you will have an ongoing relationship with your clients and can review the changes.   And celebrate in the successes!

Dr. Mehmet Oz Tells the US Senate We Need Health Coaches.

In a CNN interview, Dr. Mehmet Oz reported that health coaches should be a part of every public clinic, medical office and hospital wellness center and should be reimbursed by insurance companies & corporate wellness programs.
