As a Certified Healthy Edge Coach, you join a family of people committed to changing the health reality of the world. We believe through education, empowerment, support and accountability we can facilitate change in people's lives that will allow them to lead a fuller and more purpose-driven life. We believe that families are ready to move towards healthier living to ensure that they will stay together longer and stronger. Healthy Edge coaches enjoy both financial and emotional rewards through creating an environment and opportunity for people to take personal responsibility for their own health and the health of the next generation.

This program is unlike any certification available ANYWHERE. We are seeking individuals who are currently coaches or who wish to become a coach and who are committed, passionate and driven to build a business and change lives.

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.
