Wherever you are in your health coaching journey, you’re in the right spot.

The Institute for Functional Health Coaching™

will take the guesswork out of the process and give you the step-by-step framework for building a low-risk, thriving practice.

The Institute for Functional Health Coaching™

The Institute for Functional Health Coaching™
has one goal: ​to give you everything you need to succeed, and leave out everything you don’t.

While other health coaching programs focus heavily on educating students about countless health conditions and dietary theories that they ​may never be able to use​ because many of these approaches are beyond our scope of practice (something that is not made clear by most institutions),​ ​we prefer a safe and simple approach that guarantees results​ for you and your clients.

All our health coaches are trained to use our safe and proven ​3-step functional method of coaching​ that is the blueprint for health coaching success.

This method, created by health coach and founder, Carmen Hunter, allows you to work with any client, with any condition, and with any health goal while staying within your scope of practice, and guarantees​ ​you’ll never have to turn a prospective client away​.

So while other programs encourage you to “find your niche” in order to find success, I teach you how to ​find success with any client.

What is a functional health coach?

A functional health coach is an expert at meeting clients where they are and taking them to where they want to be in their health journey in the least stressful way possible by practicing a low-risk, transformational approach that is safe for both coach and client.

We believe that by educating our clients on our seven essentials for optimal health – whole foods, sleep optimization, safe movement, fun, stress perception, spirituality and addressing old trauma – they will experience life-changing results with our support.

We are not cookie-cutter health coaches, we are experts at safely helping our clients dig into the root cause of their health issues, utilizing our resources to suggest lifestyle changes based on what the client feels is least stressful, and supporting our clients through those changes so that they can achieve sustainable results.

Our unique approach allows us to build a business through the most powerful form of advertising – referrals from healthy, happy clients.

We educate, empower and inspire our clients to become the best version of themselves and live their best lives.

What Our Students Are Saying…

There has never been a more promising time to become a

health and wellness coach

As our healthcare industry works to slash health care costs, major emphasis is being placed on preventative care measures and value-based care.

In fact, a 2011, U.S. News and World Report called wellness coaching a “trend on the way in.”


It’s hard to put into words just how much Carmen Hunter has meant to me and my heath coaching career. Before I met her, I had attended two health coaching/nutrition schools but was lost and overwhelmed when it came to actually being a health coach. Yet the very first time I heard Carmen speak, she taught me and the other frustrated coaches on the call how we could pursue the passion that brought us to this field safely, sanely, confidently and in a manner that would legally protect us while also empowering our clients to take charge of their own health. It was a revelation. A weight was lifted and I could see the path forward. Carmen also reinvigorated my excitement about coaching and gave me confidence that yes, I can do this.

Carmen Hunter has an amazing depth and breadth of knowledge when it comes to health coaching, and the way in which she imparts this information to her students is in a clear, straightforward and concise way. She cuts through the noise and teaches subjects that are relevant to being a Health Coach – there’s no fluff and stuff – just the best information I’ve ever come across. Being trained by Carmen ensures you will NEVER have to take another course again! She is priceless!!!

-Tish Fawcett


When I graduated almost 2 years ago, I felt as though there were things missing from my health coaching education. There was a lot of information but not enough structure for learning the skill of coaching. There were also many gray areas that left me feeling uncomfortable, doubtful and not confident in myself. I made many mistakes during this time trying to find resources to help me with those missing pieces. Then I heard about Carmen and signed up for her programs. I told myself that this was going to be the last place I would turn to as I was losing hope in ever health coaching. I must say that she has been my saving grace and I am so grateful to be a part of her community.

-Rebecca S.


I took a few “popular” Health Coaching Certification courses before I found Carmen Hunter’s course. I wish I had found her sooner because I would have saved myself a lot of time and money! Carmen outlines the real world, concrete steps to becoming a successful coach and she does it in any easy to understand manner.
