50 Ways to Use Your Health Coach Certification

50 Ways to Use Your Health Coach Certification

If becoming a health coach intrigues you, but you’re not quite sure what you would do with your certification yet, then this post is for you!

You probably know the option of creating your own business and working with clients, but maybe the sound of that just doesn’t give you a concrete idea. Or maybe you’re just curious about what else you could do with your certification.

The good news is, the options are basically  e n d l e s s  when it comes to engaging, interesting and rewarding ways to use your health coaching certification.

Before I became a health coach, I had no idea that it was even a career! Fast-forward to eight years later, and I’ve met hundreds—if not thousands—of thriving health coaches all around the world while speaking at events and getting to know new communities.

To get the ball rolling for you, I’ve listed 50 ways to use your health certification below.. But think of this as just a starter list to get you going. If you don’t see anything on here that suits your fancy, then keep thinking and creating your perfect role! One of the coolest things about becoming a health coach is that you get to make it work for you. You can create your own future.
