A Growing Industry

According to a study by Accenture, consumer healthcare is a $502 billion market that will GROW to $737 billion over the next 5 years. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the number of jobs for health and wellness coaches to increase 21% in the next seven years, becoming “the fastest growing source of employment in the economy.” As healthcare costs continue to surge, more corporations are beginning to hire Health Coaches to establish workplace wellness programs for employees. In fact, according to the Huffington Post, 51% of all employers with a workforce of 50 or more employees created workplace wellness programs in 2013. Workplace wellness is estimated to be a $6 billion industry! What this means is that people are definitely looking for and paying for health and wellness services that, with the right education, you can provide.

Where Can Health Coaches Work?

One of the gifts of becoming a Health Coach is that the possibilities for what you can do are infinite! Many of our graduates work with clients 1-on-1 over the phone or in a local office, or even on Skype, which means that you can see clients all over the world. Other graduates choose to work in a chiropractor’s office or with a Naturopathic doctor, or in a wellness center with other holistic practitioners. Some graduates partner with yoga studios, universities, schools, churches, synagogues, and community centers. In fact, physicians are being urged by the American Medical Association to hire Health Coaches to join their practices in order to help patients achieve their goals. The 1-on-1 care a Coach provides is exactly what the medical field has been missing. Physicians have the opportunity to help more people without burning out and patients are seeing better results with the focus on HABIT CHANGE that a Coach provides. The choice is yours. As long as you have the passion and the drive to succeed, your workplace is what you make it! To learn more about the many career paths available to Health Coaches, read this blog post.

How Much Can Health Coaches Earn?

There is ENORMOUS opportunity in the coaching industry that is projected to grow in the coming years. The International Coaching Federation shares a yearly report on the state of the coaching industry, providing statistics on industry growth and a baseline picture of the profession.

According to the International Coaching Federation:

  • Worldwide, 6 in 10 coaches showed an increase in clients at the rate of $200 – $500/hr
  • Most coaches predict a further increase in fees, clients, hours, and revenue in the coming 12 months

As a student of Health Coach Institute, we’ll give you everything you need to  become a masterful coach who can transform lives and the comprehensive business training and ongoing support to launch a successful career.

As a Coach…

You will apply nutrition and habit change expertise and transformational coaching skills to help others master healthy habits that serve them for life.

You will empower others to become their best selves in health and in life…while becoming the best version of YOU in the process!

Most importantly, you will help revolutionize the way we do health – as a healer and leader of a new wave of healthcare.

The State of Healthcare

According to the CDC, 86% of all healthcare dollars ($2.9 trillion and growing) are spent treating chronic diseases and conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.

These lifestyle diseases are top global killers – and poor health habits are the main culprit.

1 in 3 American adults has pre-diabetes


Heart disease is responsible for 1 out of 4 deaths in the US each year

(and is the leading cause of death for both men & women)


More than 1/3 of American adults are obese


Globally,  3/4 of the population fails to meet recommended guidelines for physical activity


One thing is clear:
We need to shift the way we do health fast.

But too often, medical professionals don’t have adequate time or resources to assist patients in providing the support and accountability they need to transform their health.

That’s where YOU can hold a new place in the healthcare system – one that emphasizes holistic health, habit change, and disease prevention.

By Becoming a Coach…

You can help others reclaim their health by providing the guidance, support, expertise, and accountability that are critical to creating lasting health transformation.
