What’s a Health Coach?

Let’s face it, there’s a ton of buzz about Certified Health Coaches right now! The term “Health Coach” is also being used quite a bit these days. If you’re confused about what it means, let us help you out. 

A Health Coach is a wellness professional who works with clients one-on-one or in group settings to help them achieve customized, personal wellness goals. These may include weight loss, increasing energy, or even better sleep. But, it doesn’t stop there, though. Health Coaches support, mentor and guide their clients to discover which lifestyle changes are needed and which foods make them feel best. All coaches must be great accountability partners and even friends who give an unbiased approach to their clients . This is how they empower them to live sustainably well.
Simply put, Health Coaches are changing the way we do healthcare and disease prevention through lifestyle changes. They are helping tremendously to reverse the pervasive healthcare crisis. Health Coaching is one of the quickest growing careers and Health Coaches are in very high demands. Now’s the time to get in!

Our students take a deep-dive into anatomy & physiology, science based dietary theories, including our own unique core concepts, the Legacy Wellness Wheel and Business Development. 
 Since we don’t believe in telling you what’s right & wrong, we’ll equip you will all of the knowledge you need to make informed decisions about the people you choose to serve. We believe there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to wellness and as you go through the curriculum you’ll learn what’s best for you and how to help your clients achieve the same. As your first client you’ll find yourself losing weight, increasing your energy, and saying goodbye to all that negative self-talk. During the program, you’ll will fall in love with the most important person in your life. YOU.

U

How is this program different from others?

We’re glad you asked! At Legacy Holistic Health, we believe that Health Coaching is about every culture and Health Coaches must be properly equipped to understand the growing needs of their clients. Unlike other programs, our Certified Health Coach program gives more in-depth information concerning the function of body systems and chronic disease processes. Over 70% of all Americans suffer from at least one chronic illness. This number is also on the rise internationally. This is where other programs fail to equip students. 

Lifestyle changes, basic knowledge of chronic disease states, physiology of body systems married to spirituality and brilliant marketing tools for business & program development, is what we offer our students. That’s the Legacy difference. This knowledge is what will set our Health Coaches apart from others. It will also equip them to easily work with primary care physicians, large healthcare corporations and the masses who need them most. It takes a team to change lives and build legacies for our clients. Health Coaches deserve the best training possible to be apart of a team care model for clients.

U

Are there scholarships available? How do I get one?

Yep! Unlike other Health Coaching Programs, we have a select amount of partial scholarships available for our students.  We understand all too well the need for financial relief. We believe in rewarding our most qualified applicants with the opportunity to secure a partial scholarship & receive a financial break.  Unfortunately, we have a limited number of these opportunities available at the beginning of each cohort.  They will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis for those who qualify.  Qualifications are based on many factors and time of matriculation.  Securing a spot with a deposit in the upcoming class will also secure the scholarship if offered. We encourage you to apply today and speak to one of our representatives.

U

How much is tuition? Are there financing options?

Tuition for the Legacy Holistic Health Coaching Program is $6997. However, we offer several flexible ways to finance your education with payments as low as $170/month. We provide short term monthly installment options for 3, 6, or 10 months. For students desiring more budget flexibility, we are proud to partner with a private student lender for financing up to 60 months (5 years). Additional fees and interest will apply for options greater than 10 months. Please call toll-free 628-262-2463 to discuss your options and find one that fits your budget. Our goal is for our students to focus on becoming top Holistic Health Coaches, without the financial strain. We understand that going back to school can be a big change and want to make the transition as smooth as possible. If you have questions about financing with our partner, please refer to the Financing FAQs at the bottom of this page.

U

How in-depth into the science and nutrition do you go?

Our program is designed to give you the skills and knowledge you need to affect change. Besides discovering several different dietary theories, you’ll be able to develop and hone your skills in the science of physiology & body systems, knowledge of chronic disease states, behavioral & lifestyle factors that affect wellness and client interviewing & coaching. With the knowledge you gain from each concept, you’ll be able to choose which ones you’d like to dig deeper into and focus your practice on. 

U

Does Insurance cover Health Coaching?

It depends. There are many insurance companies that cover Health Coaching for patients. You’ll see that more and more doctors are hiring health coaches to work alongside them in practices, but other types of coverage may not. Be sure to ask your healthcare provider if these types of services are covered to be sure.

It’s important to know that recognition of health coaching as a career and of Health Coaches as an essential component of the healthcare system is on the rise. As this recognition continues to grow, there are an increasing number of people who are looking for preventative and lifestyle management services that Health Coaches provide. Legacy Holistic Health Institute has taken a stand beside other schools that offer health coaching programs to ensure that work with policy makers allows health coaching to be more accessible to all.
U

Can I really make a living as a Health Coach?

Absolutely! Hundreds of new opportunities are available and posted everyday online requesting the need for large and small corporations to add Health Coaches to their team. The good news? Additionally, coaches create several opportunities for themselves including one-on-one coaching & group coaching, corporate wellness programs, online programs, healthy food products, skincare lines, books and more.

U

Cut to the chase: How much money do Health Coaches make?

According to the US Department of Labor, the number of Health Coaches employed in the US is expected to grow 21% by 2022. The average Health Coach can currently make up to $50K/Year as a career.  Many coaches develop their own brands on and offline that can quickly advance to six figures and more.  There really is no limit to how lucrative becoming a certified Health Coach can be.  Having the certifications opens up doors to work alongside others in the medical field, expand your brand as a keynote speaker, wellness retreat facilitator, develop corporate wellness programs and so much more.
