My journey to becoming an IIN health coach

In 2012, I was a senior in college and had all of those typical senior-year habits: drinking way too much, not working out (like not even once), taking all the naps, and eating all the things. It showed. Studying to become an IIN health coach was not on my radar.

I was constantly exhausted and didn’t know what it felt like to feel good. My body couldn’t go a day without rest, and I found it hard to wake up for my 10 AM classes…so I didn’t.

Fast-forward to the summer of 2014. I’m living and working in the fashion industry in New York City, finally doing all the things I’d dreamed of in college. I have a killer closet, a fantastic apartment, and a job that most women would kill for. On the inside, I was always stressed-out and overrun with anxiety that I felt was out of my control.

I had recently started working out with a personal trainer and started to see and feel changes in my body. Still, I didn’t have the nutritional experience to support my increased activity.

Waking up four days a week for a 6 AM training session, followed by a full day of work, then coming home to a puppy and dinner left me utterly exhausted. My burn out began to show.

I was sick all the time, running on coffee, and was sleeping like crap. Yes, working out had shifted something within me, and I knew I was possible of change, but I couldn’t figure out my next step: how to take my passion and health to the next level.

Studying at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition

I discovered IIN in the late fall of 2014 and quickly realized that my life was about to change for the better. After chatting on the phone with the admissions staff, I felt like I had finally found my path in life. There were other people out there who had not only walked my path but who had also turned their lives around and helped others in the process.

Living my story for the past two years, I had realized that my journey was not a struggle; it was indeed grounds for change and a step towards becoming a coach and beacon of change for others looking to improve their holistic health and wellness.

Taking the leap and enrolling at IIN completely changed my life, and I pinch myself that I get to wake up every day to help others on their path to wellness. Embarking on a journey with IIN and becoming a Health Coach is what you make it – the power is in your hands!

What I loved about the IIN program

Convenience, for one. I loved how convenient studying to become a health coach at IIN was. The flexibility was one of the great underrated values for the cost of tuition, in my opinion.

For example, I could work on my modules on my terms as my schedule would permit. As long as I stayed relatively up-to-date, I had no problem completing everything. You can get a sneak-peek of an IIN class here.

What I also really liked was the varying nutritional theories that we learned throughout the course. We all know there isn’t a one-size-fits-all diet, and IIN fully supports trying different eating styles to find the one that works best for you and your client. You’ll learn dozens of different dietary theories from the top teachers in the world.

Also, IIN is truly about looking at the big picture, a holistic viewpoint. You or a client could be eating all the broccoli in the world, but if she’s in an unhappy relationship, she’s never going to feel her best physically or emotionally. You’ll learn about how to look at the big picture to help your clients understand what health truly means.

On top of it all, you’ll also receive all the tools you need to launch your coaching business successfully. I’m talking handouts for you and your clients, program contracts, a free website, and more!

There wasn’t that much that I didn’t enjoy about the entire process of studying to become a health coach through IIN. If you have an open mind, an interest in helping people, and love the process of self-discovery, IIN is the perfect school for you!

Don’t miss this! Recently, I was interview by Brandon from Life Coach Path all about my coaching journey. You can learn more and read the full interview at the National Coaching Academy.

How much time do you put into studying at IIN?

I enrolled with IIN at a time I was working my full-time corporate fashion job in New York City. I found managing my current work and studying with IIN was very manageable if I planned and made my learning a priority.

All of the IIN courses are web-based and available virtually anywhere in the world! This allowed me to catch up on classes on the bus, on the treadmill at the gym, or while walking to work.

The program itself runs for just under a year, with a new module almost every week. Check out the most recent curriculum schedule here.
