Become an IIN Health Coach!
Hey there! Are you tired of feeling tired all the time? Do you wish you had more energy and focus to tackle your daily to-do list? Or maybe you're already a big fan of health and wellness, and you're looking for a way to turn your passion into a career or side hustle, (just like I did!) 🤩🤩
Girllll! I've got the solution for you: the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) health coaching course! 🥳
I know what you're thinking: "Another health course? I don't have time for that!" 😮💨😮💨
But trust me, this one is different. 😍
Because it's not JUST about nutrition and exercise (although those are super important too!). It's about taking a holistic approach to health and wellness, and learning how to create a balanced, fulfilling life that supports your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. And the best part?
You can learn all of this while creating a career or side hustle that helps others do the same! AND it's all online so you can study from wherever you are! 😍
I did! I studied while I was still in yachting and LOVED every moment of it! Genuinely the best course I've EVER done - and I've done a lot! 😍😍😍
As a graduate of the programme, I get asked a lot of questions about my experiences which I’m super happy to share.
**Please note that I'm an IIN Ambassador which means I get a referral reward if someone I refer decides to sign up.
BUT, I take my role very seriously and I'll be completely honest with you about the course and whether or not it might be the right fit for you.
Here are just a few reasons why the IIN health coaching course is the perfect choice for you if you'd LOVE to improve your own health or start a new career in the wellness industry:
✅ It will help your own health in ways you never imagined! 💖
Let's be real: most of us could use a little help when it comes to our health. Whether you're struggling with fatigue, stress, or just can't seem to shake that cold that's been lingering for weeks, the IIN health coaching course can help. You'll learn about the latest research and trends in nutrition, fitness, and wellness, and you'll discover how to apply that knowledge to your own life in a way that works for you. 🔥
For example, let's say you're someone who struggles with anxiety. In the IIN course, you'll learn about the connection between nutrition and mental health, and you'll discover how to use food and lifestyle choices to support your mental well-being.
You might try incorporating more whole foods into your diet, practising mindfulness and meditation, or creating a self-care routine that helps you manage stress. By the end of the course, you'll have a toolkit of strategies and techniques that you can use to improve your own health and well-being. 🌸
✅ It's an amaaaazing career or side hustle (I've been doing it since late 2021!) 💖
Okay, let's talk about the career possibilities for a second. As a certified health coach, you'll be able to work with clients one-on-one or in groups, helping them achieve their health and wellness goals. (This is what I do, and I bloody love it!) 🤩🤩
You might specialise in a particular area, like weight loss, stress management, or chronic illness, or you might offer a more general approach to wellness. You could work in a variety of settings, including health clinics, fitness centres, or even your own home office (BIIIG fan of working from home)! 🤩
And here's the best part: the wellness industry is HUUUUGE right now. Like, huge, huge, HUUUUGE
(As in, $4.7 trillion in 2021 HUGE, and projected to reach $12.9 trillion by 2031 HUGE!!) 🤯🤯🤯🤯
More and more people are realising the importance of taking care of their health, and they're looking for experts to guide them on their journey.
But maybe you're not looking for a full-time career in health coaching. Maybe you're already happy with your current job, but you're looking for a way to turn your passion for wellness into a side hustle.
As a certified health coach, you can offer your services on a freelance basis, working with clients on your own schedule and from the comfort of home, or onboard (if you've got good internet - #yachtproblems 🤣).
How it will help YOUR health...
Like I said, IIN is all about taking a holistic approach to health and wellness. That means it's not just focused on what you eat or how much you exercise (although those are important too!). It's also super focused on your mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
Here are some specific examples of how the IIN course can help YOU improve your health (knowledge which you can pass on to your clients!)
🤩 Personal boundaries:
Have you ever found yourself saying yes to something you really didn't want to do, just because you didn't want to disappoint someone else? Or have you ever felt like you didn't have enough time for yourself, because you were too busy taking care of everyone else's needs? The IIN course can help you set healthy boundaries and prioritise your own needs, so you can feel more balanced and fulfilled. For example, you might learn how to say no without feeling guilty, or how to create a self-care routine that works for you.
🧘🏻♀️ Stress management:
We all know that stress can be a total nightmare for our health. But did you know that there are many different strategies for managing stress and not all of them involve meditation or yoga? In the IIN course, you'll learn about heaps of stress-management techniques, from breathwork to journaling to creative expression. You'll find what works best for you and your unique needs, so you can feel more calm and centred.
Of course, nutrition is a big part of the IIN course! But it's not there to tell you what to eat or what not to eat. Instead, it'll help you develop a healthy, intuitive relationship with food that works for your body and your lifestyle. You might learn how to cook simple, delicious meals that nourish your body and soul, or how to shop for healthy foods on a budget. And you'll also learn how to listen to your body's signals and cravings, so you can make informed choices about what to eat.
Exercise is important for our health, but it doesn't have to be a chore! In the IIN course, you'll explore different types of movement that feel fun and enjoyable (cos nobody wants to do exercise they hate!). Maybe you'll discover a new love for dancing, or find that you prefer strength training to cardio. You'll learn how to create a balanced fitness routine that works for your body and your schedule, so you can feel energised, strong and fabulous!
What you'll learn 🥳
Here are some specific examples of what you'll learn and how they can use it in your own life:
☀️ Dietary theories
Okay, let's face it - we've all tried some weird diets in the name of health. From juice cleanses to cabbage soup (no disrespect to juice cleanses - I love a green juice!), we've been there and done that. But in the IIN programme, you'll learn about a wide range of dietary theories that are actually sustainable and enjoyable. No more choking down kale smoothies - unless you actually like them, of course. You'll learn how to create delicious and nutritious meals that make you feel good inside and out.
For example, one of my clients was convinced that going gluten-free was the key to her health. But after learning about different dietary theories in the IIN programme, I helped her realise that her body actually does well with whole grains. She started incorporating more quinoa, brown rice, and oats into her meals and felt a huuuuge improvement in her energy levels and digestion.
☀️ Mind-body connection:
We've all been there - stressing out about work, family, or just life in general. But did you know that stress can actually have physical effects on your body? In the IIN programme, you'll learn about the mind-body connection and how to manage stress in a healthy way. You'll discover techniques like meditation, yoga, and journaling that can help you feel more centred and calm.
For example, one of my clients was struggling with anxiety and insomnia. We worked together to create a self-care routine that included meditation, yoga, and a relaxing bedtime routine. She started sleeping better and feeling calmer and centred during the day and felt a gazillion times more confident at work!
☀️ Holistic health:
Let's be real - sometimes life can feel like a juggling act. Between work, relationships, and everything else, it's easy to put our own well-being on the back burner. But in the IIN programme, you'll learn about the importance of self-care and how to prioritize your own health and happiness. You'll discover how to set boundaries, build healthy habits, and create a life that supports your goals and values.
For example, one of my clients was constantly doing waaaay too much, neglecting her own needs and was totally burnt out. We worked together to identify her priorities and set boundaries that allowed her to take time for herself without feeling guilty. She started feeling a million times more energised, fulfilled, CONFIDENT and even noticed improvements in her relationships and career - AND her acne totally cleared up (which she'd had for 10+ years!) - mind/ body connection I tell ya!
☀️ Coaching skills:
We all have that one friend who comes to us for advice on everything from relationships to career choices. But how do you actually give effective advice and support? In the IIN programme, you'll learn how to be an effective coach, with skills like active listening, powerful questioning, and providing accountability and support to clients.
For example, one of my clients was over yachting and was struggling to find a career path that felt fulfilling. We worked together to identify her strengths and values, and she started taking concrete steps towards a new career that aligned with those things. As her coach, I provided support, encouragement, and accountability along the way.
☀️ Business skills:
Okay, let's be real - the idea of starting your own business can be intimidating. But in the IIN programme, you'll learn the practical skills you need to turn your passion for health and wellness into a successful coaching business. You'll learn about marketing, pricing, finding clients, and more - all with the support of experienced mentors and a community of like-minded women.
This is how I built my business! I started my own health coaching business after completing the IIN programme. I used the marketing and business skills I learned to find clients and build a thriving practice.
And the best part? I get to do work I LOVE, on my own terms, from home, wearing my pyjamas with Harry Potter on in the background if I want! Amazing!
Why it's an amazing career or side hustle!
As I mentioned earlier, the wellness industry is booming right now, and there are plenty of opportunities for certified health coaches. But why is health coaching such a fab career choice? Here are a few reasons:
As a health coach, you can work with clients in a variety of settings, from health clinics to gyms to your own home office (like I do!). You can choose your own hours and set your own rates, which gives you a ton of flexibility and control over your work schedule.
It's SOOOO amazing to be able to help others achieve their health and wellness goals. As a health coach, you'll have the opportunity to make a real difference in people's lives and to see the huuuge impact of your work.
If you're someone who loves the idea of running your own business, health coaching might be a perfect fit for you. You can build your own brand, develop your own programmes and services, and create a business that reflects YOUR unique values and vision (for example, I have 1:1 coaching and The Happy Stewardess Collective!)
Special offer if you join IIN & say I referred you!
If you decide to go ahead and enrol in IIN using my name as a referral, I'd love to offer you two 60-minute mentoring sessions (worth over £400) to be booked whenever you like in your journey.
These sessions are immensely helpful if you feel like you need some focus, clarity and extra support moving forward.
