Become a Coach


Becoming a health coach is not just about learning about health and talking to clients. When you become a health coach, you are also operating a business. How will you attract clients? How will you support your clients with accurate information, recipes, meal plans, etc.? What systems will you use to organize and market your business? What ongoing support will be offered to you after you are certified? These questions are often not asked and therefore leave many health coaches skilled, yet unsuccessful.

The Healthy Edge not only offers a health coaching certification, we have a comprehensive, professional and simple system for both your clients and the management of your business.

We know you have many options for an online health coach certification. We have countless health coaches find their way to The Healthy Edge after becoming certified with someone else. After months or even years of studying and thousands of invested dollars these health coaches realize that building a health coaching business requires more than knowledge. It requires marketing strategies to attract clients, support tools for client success and a strong community of ongoing support.

We want you to stop wasting time, energy and money and start changing lives with health coaching! You shouldn't have to  reinvent the wheel when it comes to supporting and coaching your clients to make healthy lifestyle changes and you shouldn't have to spend more money creating your own marketing tools and strategies!

If you are ready for simplicity and professionalism in a health coaching certification and business, welcome to The Healthy Edge.


At The Healthy Edge, we provide health coaches with a SYSTEM to use to empower your clients to results. Most people who want to be (or who are) health coaches are incredibly gifted and passionate, but they find themselves struggling with the details of their business including marketing, pricing, creating packages and getting PAID. It's time to focus on your strengths and maximize the power of your coaching by offering the most comprehensive, professional and empowering lifestyle system available. Take what you offer to your clients to a new level without spending thousands of dollars on another degree!

3 Day Skills Picture

4 Day Skills Workshop

Coaching is the lifeblood of your business, whether it be supporting a client in private 1-on-1 sessions or facilitating small groups. And the best way to learn how to be a masterful coach is to actually do it. No hiding behind a book, listening in on group conference calls or passively observing someone model techniques. Nothing cuts it like sitting face-to-face with a client, asking challenging questions, watching their expression, feeling their emotions, and witnessing the SHIFT.

Karen Kapusta, Director of Education and Training

In this 4-day workshop, you will actively coach using a variety of proven tools and techniques to enhance your skills. Plus you will receive real-time feedback from your peers, “clients”, and expert trainer Karen Kapusta. You will also facilitate a group through a segment of a Healthy Edge Course while being videotaped.

One full day is dedicated to business development where the focus is on attracting and nurturing your coaching clients. Learn how the various Healthy Edge mini-programs and challenges can grow your business, get crystal clear on your packages and pricing, and practice the free-coaching session as a method to convert your leads into paying clients.

Participate in all 4 days and be awarded your Healthy Edge Coach Certificate at the conclusion. Plus receive a Certificate of Completion for 34 hours of training.

At the 4-Day Skills Training Workshop, you will work in small groups and be provided a mentor who is an experienced Healthy Edge coach as well as interact with new coaches in an intimate setting.

Here some ways in which coaches use The Healthy Edge system.

To learn more in depth information and answers to questions we have received from both clients and coaches, please read our Frequently Asked Questions.

Hosting group classes in your home (or someone else's home) is an intimate and amazing way to share The Healthy Edge. Some coaches provide a Healthy Edge meal each week or the group enjoys pot-luck style meals. This is not mandatory and completely up to the coach. The health video for the week can be watched together in the home (you receive the DVDs of the video series) and then coaches lead and encourage discussion. This may take place around the dinner table or within the living room. As a coach, you receive training and detailed coaching scripts on how to conduct group meetings.  This format is typically 2 hours in length, one time a week. You can structure your participants to turn in their Weekly Accountability Logs and you provide minimal feedback via email.
Dyann Lyon and Wild Jones have expanded their coaching to one-on-one coaching clients when their schedules are too busy for in-home group programs. Sometimes getting people together can be challenging with various schedules and responsibilities.  A lot of coaches have had incredible success with one-on-one coaching via the phone (or Skype®). This allows you to literally coach anyone from anywhere. The client completes the coursework for the week, sends you their Weekly Accountability Log via email and you receive training on how to lead your clients through a 30 minute coaching call. This is a great way to accommodate your schedule as well as your clients. You are provided with coaching contract templates, training on how to determine what to charge as well as how to use the Weekly Accountability Logs to lead the coaching calls.
Coaches Deb and Steve Hurter in Puyallup, WA offers an exercise demo during a group meeting at a Real Estate Agency.  The Healthy Edge is an amazing way to create relationships in the community with other businesses who support health. Many Healthy Edge coaches have formed relationships with fitness facilities, chiropractors, wellness clinics, etc. to offer or advertise Healthy Edge classes or one-on-one coaching opportunities.  Sometime this relationship includes a place to host weekly meetings and other times it is simply referral based. We encourage our coaches to create a win-win situation for both you and the business. This may include a referral fee or if you are bringing new clients into their business it may just be referral based. Many health practitioners KNOW that their clients need support in healthier living, but do not have the time, staff or system to offer it. As a Healthy Edge coach, you will be able to offer a proven, professional system and the support to implement it.
