1. Passion for Healthy Living: The first step to becoming a health coach is to be certain living a healthy life is your greatest passion.
2. Pursue a Health-Related Certification/Degree: Providing guidance and management in the major principles of health building, including diet, rest, physical activity, stress reduction and wellness, you must be well trained in performing this job effectively.
3. Nurture the Skills You Need to Excel on the Job: As a health coach, you need to stay on top of industry developments and update your health coaching training, skills and materials accordingly.
