Education and Experience
In order to work as a health coach, an individual should possess at least a Bachelor’s degree in a field such as health education, nursing, athletic training or nutrition. He or she will need vast knowledge regarding topics such as weight management, nutrition, pre- or post-natal care, reducing stress, handling chronic conditions and more. Since some experience as a healthcare provider is necessary, many health coaches start out working as nursing assistants, nutrition counsellors or nurses and work their way up.
