Current statistics show health-related occupations are growing faster than the average growth for all other occupations. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, we’ll soon see a 21% growth in health occupations nationwide, including health coaches.
This rapid growth in health coaching services includes many desirable work settings such as:
- Day spas
- Medical centers
- Natural health food stores
- Physician offices
- Health and Wellness Centers
With such wide-ranging opportunities available, the salary potential is quite variable. The median annual wage for health educators, including health coaches was $53,940 in May 2017.
Salaries for health coaches can vary considerably based on your degree and certification, the state of employment and the employer. Also, the greater your education and experience, the higher your pay scale may be.
When working in the Health and Wellness field, the pay is usually commensurate with the role you play and level of responsibility. For example, in a corporation, a Health and Wellness Administrator’s salary is approximately $50,000 but a Wellness Program Manager’s salary can exceed $75,000 annually.
Of course with training as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioner, you will have the skills and tools that separate you from other practitioners. This is why FDN health coaches never run out of potential clients, making them the most successful in the world of health and wellness.
