I am so happy that I decided to take a risk and become a certified Health Coach! However it definitely wasn’t an easy decision! I already have my degree in Exercise Science and have done my fair share of personal training. However I realized that there is so much more to health. I have a huge passion for nutrition and eating a delicious, balanced diet. I had a few friends and coworkers who had various degrees and certifications in nutrition/health coaching. So I did my research. I spent hours looking up different certifications and reading reviews on each one. I didn’t want to just go for the cheapest or quickest certification. Anybody could do that. I wanted a certification that is well-known, recognized in the industry, and would give me all of the education that I need to be a successful health coach. That is when I found the Institute for Integrative Nutrition® (IIN®).
As soon as I enrolled in the program I instantly knew it was the best decision that I have ever made. Each week they released new content and videos for us to watch, and I loved every single one of them. Each week I was completed interested and engaged in what I was learning. This school not only teaches you over 100 different dietary theories, but they preach something that I strongly believe in: not one diet is right for everybody. They teach you everything you need to know to make your own decisions. They don’t tell you to cut out meat, or eliminate dairy. They will teach you the pros and cons to each side and then let you take it from there. They also are big on balance and that no foods should be completely off limits. This is what helped me know that this was the right program for me.
If any of you are thinking about becoming a Health Coach, then I highly recommend the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. But don’t take my word for it! Do your own research and decide what is best for you. But to help make your research a little easier, here is a link for you to try out an actual class from IIN:
