Functional Diagnostic Nutrition | How to Start A Health Coaching Business

Are you afraid to leave the stability of your current job and take the plunge into a new career as a health coach? Well, it doesn’t have to be all or nothing when it comes to health coaching!

Here are some helpful tips in building a part-time health coaching practice.

Share: Tell your family, friends, colleagues, local groups and social media what you are doing! Get the word out!

Start slow: Starting with just one or two clients will help you learn, build, and progress at a pace that works best for you.

Set clear goals: Set attainable goals to help build your confidence and keep you on track. As your practice grows, you can adjust your goals accordingly.

Get organized: Being well organized equals more efficiency, which makes your business run smoothly. Some simple organization tips include:

  • Set aside time for client calls and questions
  • Make sure your filing system is well labeled for each client and contains all relevant documents including client agreements, health history forms, lab test results and session notes.
  • Create informational packets to use with clients and new potential clients.

With time, practice and organization, your health coaching business will soon be running effortlessly, whether it is part-time or full-time.

Of course with training as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioner, you will have the skills and tools that separate you from other practitioners. This is why FDN health coaches never run out of potential clients, making them the most successful in the world of health and wellness.

And that’s it for this week’s Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Vlog of the Week.

Isn’t it time you help your clients on a deeper level?

How a Health Coach Can Help Corporations - Vimeo

How a Health Coach Can Help Corporations Reach Their Goals As Employers

Chronic diseases and related lifestyle risk factors are the leading drivers of health care costs for employers and employees.

Productivity losses linked to employees who miss work cost employers $225.8 billion, or approximately $1,700 per employee, annually.

Having a wellness program initiative like health coaching in the workplace can mean lower direct costs, such as insurance premiums and workers’ compensation claims.

If employees are well-taken care, they are more productive, less stressed, and happier workers.

Employees need someone to explain and assist them with understanding health information and give them tools to make healthier and lasting changes to their lifestyles.

Health coaches engage employees and meet them where they are so they are more successful at making healthy behavior changes. 

Increase Productivity: If your employees are well taken care of, they are happier and more productive.

Health coaches help employees understand where they are in life, get them ‘unstuck’ and create a plan of action by providing them with the tools to stay motivated. 

Decrease Stress: Stress plays a major role in one’s life and is one of the nation’s leading health problems.

Health coaches work with employees to identify their stressors and create action plans to manage their stress.

Promote Healthy Behaviors: Long working hours, sedentary lifestyle, and low self-esteem are some of the many reasons employees turn to unhealthy behaviors.

Health coaches can help quickly identify unhealthy behaviors, prioritize, and focus on one at a time.

The workplace, where employees spend much of their day, is a perfect place to put healthy behavior changes into action.

By taking care of employees through health coaching programs, corporations are ensuring not only a healthy culture, but a more productive and successful company and workplace.

Of course with training as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioner, you will have the skills and tools that separate you from other practitioners. This is why FDN health coaches never run out of potential clients, making them the most successful in the world of health and wellness.

And that’s it for this week’s Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Vlog of the Week.

How to Become a Health Coach - Vimeo

American companies are taking action to the soaring healthcare costs by hiring health coaches to implement workplace wellness programs for their employees.

According to the Huffington Post, over half of all employers with 50 or more employees created workplace wellness programs in 2013. Workplace wellness is estimated to be a $6 billion industry.

As a health coach, your main goal is to help clients cultivate a healthier lifestyle.

Some of your responsibilities may include:

Assessing a client’s current health status
Developing health goals for a client
Creating a client’s personal action plan
Providing accountability
Documenting his or her progress

If you are interested in a health coach career, there are some educational options to look into. A bachelor’s degree is considered a professional standard, especially in a related discipline such as nutrition, counseling, fitness, psychology, wellness, nursing or health care.

Health Coach Certification is also a great way to acquire professional skills. Credentialing associations such as the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and the National Society of Health Coaches (NSHC) administer examinations to individuals that want to attain the distinction of certified health coaches (CHCs).

Of course there is no equivalent to the superior training and skills of Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioners. FDN training will help you to understand the mental/emotional, physiological, bio-chemical and behavioral factors required to improve your client’s overall health and well-being.

That’s why Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® (FDN) practitioners are the most successful health coaches in health and wellness today.

And that’s it for this week’s Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Vlog of the Week.
