I’m considering getting into health and wellness coaching. I’m also an RRCA certified running coach, but am not a personal trainer or nutritionist. It seems like most people I’ve met who don’t work for a company full-time as a wellness coach are doing the health coaching as an adjunct to personal training or as a dietitian.
Is anyone making a living solely from their own business as a health/wellness coach? Thanks!!
You may want to look at corporate opportunities if that is your passion. There may be some need there for just health and wellness coaching. I am doing a lot more health coaching these days, but I offer it as part of my personal training business and it has worked out well. Like Karin, I also tend to incorporate some information as I train–they just go hand in hand. The combination has definitely made me a better trainer.
Good luck to you.
