Here’s an overview of what you’ll learn:


Pillar 1 includes all the foundational nutrition information future Health and Life Coaches need to help clients with their nutrition goals. The lessons and handouts cover the fundamentals of nutrition science and healthy eating, how food interacts with the body to mitigate disease and build optimal health, how to reduce stress and cravings, and how to balance blood sugar and gain energy. You’ll apply this knowledge to gain confidence with 8 foundational habit change coaching skills.


In Pillar 2, you’ll learn why the Habit Change Coaching Method is the secret to creating successful lifestyle changes and the #1 coaching skill of successful Health and Life Coaches.

With a Life Coach certificate, you’ll be able to help clients across a broader spectrum and also expand your career opportunities.

    Talk to a Clarity Coach

  • What’s the difference between a Health Coach and a therapist?

    This is a popular question we get asked A LOT. Health Coaches and therapists both provide counsel; but therapists help their clients work through and resolve past issues and traumas, whereas coaches work with clients on current obstacles and challenges. A coach’s main job is to help clients take results-oriented action to move from stuck in their lives to empowered and liberated. Another main difference is that coaches do not analyze, diagnose, or prescribe treatment, while therapists do.
