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.”
