Become A Health Coach + IIN Discount

Do you wish you could wake up every morning and actually WANT to start working, rather than hitting snooze three times and dragging yourself to the office? Have you always wanted to help others in a big way? I’ve been there.

Why I Became A Health Coach {My Story}

I worked as an event planner and nonprofit developer for years and know what it feels like to be less than psyched to go to work every day.

Everything changed when I went back to school at the world’s largest nutrition school, the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and graduated as a Certified Health Coach.

The program changed my life, and I don’t say that lightly.  The mission of the school is to “play a crucial role in improving health and happiness, and through that process, create a ripple effect that transforms the world.”

Right after graduating, I created a successful health coaching practice and cooking show to teach others how to truly nourish their bodies. Since then, I’ve also written two best selling books.  Now I wake up every morning energized and excited to see clients, run my online programs and in person retreats, shoot videos, and appear on national television as the go-to wellness expert.

If I can do it, you can too.

Because I have so much love for the IIN program and all it taught me (and I get questions all of the time about my education and journey as a health coach), I love sharing information about the program with anyone else who might benefit from it and created this page specifically to answer the most frequent questions I get. 


If IIN is something you’re seriously considering, I invite you to watch my Q&A call all about my IIN journey and what it’s like to run a business as a health coach. 

What Is A Health Coach?

When you graduate from IIN you can shape your own business as a Certified Health Coach. Health Coaches offer one-on-one health coaching, group programs, workshops, healthy cooking classes and more. They work as a guide, coaching others to reach their health and wellness goals. Health Coaches help their clients make gradual, sustainable changes that create huge improvements in their overall well-being.

What Is The Health Coach Training Program?

It’s a 1-year program, broken into 40 modules, and delivered entirely through an online learning platform. You’ll learn over 100 dietary theories as well as business skills and coaching training.

Your IIN education will empower you to transform your health and happiness and launch a fulfilling new career so you can make money doing work you love.

The school teaches you how to work with clients one-on-one, run group programs, and hold workshops at corporate offices, spas, health clubs, doctors’ offices, schools and so much more.

There are unlimited options, and how you use your education is entirely up to you. Integrative Nutrition covers cutting-edge, modern, traditional, and holistic nutrition concepts you won’t find in a traditional nutrition program. The Institute for Integrative (IIN) was founded in 1992 by Joshua Rosenthal and it’s now the largest nutrition school in the world. IIN has a global community of over 100,000 students and graduates from over 150 countries (amazing alumni network)!
