Happy I Am A Health Coach Week!

It’s an exciting time to be a health coach. The world is changing, and so is the health industry. Now more than ever, people are more health conscious and doing more to live happy, healthy fulfilled lives. Part of that change is focusing on each person as an individual and not looking at medicine as a “one size fits all” fix for everyone.

Being a Health Coach and What it Means

Health and Wellness Coaching aren’t exactly new concepts, but along with traditional medicine, these practices offer individuals the guidance they need to foster a healthy living environment, both in AND out of the body. Coaches will often tell you, that they love helping people. At the core of health and wellness coaching, the ultimate goal is to positively impact someones life.

We asked hundreds of Health Coaches why they do the work they do and they provided us a robust list reasons why they are health coaches. Below is a list of HCI’s top 25 reasons given by real health coaches why they are a coach.
