Introducing the Health Coach Career Accelerator

Do you have a certification? Maybe more than one? It is not uncommon for coaches to “certificate hop” looking for the business information they need to start using the knowledge they have earned through those certifications. Stop the search and read on……

Go From knowledgable health coach TO actually working with clients

IN 4 WEEKS or less

You’ll be able to start your business and build a solid foundation for growth, start signing clients, and start coaching clients immediately after completion

“I have several certifications – I’ve learned something from all – but I truly wish I’d started with IFHC first!

I’m doing the Business Accelerator Course and the information and practical business tips in this course are way beyond anything I expected and have experienced in other courses. Carmen provides the down and dirty street knowledge that only a health coach who has been in the trenches can.

This course has given me the confidence that I can get my health coaching practice off the ground and take it to the next level, and, most importantly, have a safe practice. As an example — just to have the knowledge that I don’t have to have a niche to start my practice has helped tremendously!

Carmen, I think you’re the ‘bee’s knees’ and thank you from the bottom of my heart!”

Karen Snyder

 Hi there, Carmen Hunter here, founder of the Institute for Functional Health Coaching, health coach mentor and certified health coach for over a decade and today, I want to give you the biggest gift I could ever give an aspiring health coach (or certified health coach who just isn’t where you want to be in your career).

I’m not sure if this is for you but if you’re open-minded about kick-starting your successful health coaching practice and stop chasing certifications that don’t give you what you need, you’re going to want to pay close attention to this opportunity.

I have created THE opportunity that will allow you to launch your health coaching business, start signing clients, and ensure your new clients achieve mind-blowing results (regardless of their condition or health goal), in four weeks or less and without anymore certifications.  It’s a training that actually compliments your existing certifications and knowledge that you have accumulated over the years but didn’t know how to use.

If you want to go from dreaming to doing or from chasing clients with no results and you are READY to commit to minimal work and investment to make it happen listen carefully.

I bet you’re a lot like me when I first started my health coaching practice.

You’ve walked through your own health journey and you want so badly to create a health coaching business that allows you to make a tremendous impact on the lives of so many people and allows you to provide your family with the quality of life they deserve. Maybe you’re overwhelmed by all of the different paths you can take, discouraged by all of the confusing information that’s being thrown your way about the health coaching industry (hello shiny object and big promises syndrome??) and you’re tired of trying to figure out how to have a low risk practice and weighed down by fear of failure.

You want to follow your passion but you’re scared to take the next step for fear it will just be more false promises about how to make this business work.

Hopefully, since you’re a part of my community already, you’ve also realized that most of what’s being taught about what you need to be successful is wrong. Hint: You don’t NEED a niche or a fancy website or a huge email list. All lies.

You’ve realized that spending months upon months studying conditions and dietary theories and dedicating yourself to becoming a “health expert” isn’t the answer to building a wildly successful health coaching practice like most claim.

Let’s be honest.  There are thousands more coaches with certifications than there are coaches working.

If it were the answer, there’d be hundreds of thousands of successful health coaches out there earning a full-time living as a health coach. But ask around and see for yourself: there just aren’t. Why? Because they are missing the business components and the confidence to make it work.

Despite pursuing fancy, expensive and lengthy certification programs, more and more health coaches can’t figure out how to be successful in this business and earn a full-time income.

This is because the reality is that you don’t need a certification from a fancy institution and you don’t need to be an expert on all health topics to get your business moving.

You can start coaching, start earning an income and start helping your clients achieve real results today simply by having access to a proven process that was created by someone who has actually built a waitlist health coaching practice from scratch (me).

Interested in learning more? Then keep reading.

I’ve put together an opportunity that will allow you to launch your health coaching practice in just a few weeks.

Not 6 months from now, not a year from now, but in less than a month, without the need to take a fancy, lengthy and/or costly certification program or be an expert on “all the things”. Being the expert in ALL things isn’t even possible. In fact you don’t need to know ANYthing new about health conditions or symptoms and diseases to start taking clients right now.

It’s called the Health Coach Career Accelerator and it was created to take you from aspiring health coach to operating your successful business in less than weeks.

Within this program, I’ll teach you everything that I wished I had known when I started my career as a health coach 10 years ago and if you implement exactly what I teach inside this program, I believe you should be able to skip ahead in your health coaching business by at least 5 years in just 1 month.

Listen, while our functional health coaching certification program is absolutely the most ideal and comprehensive solution for building a sustainable health coaching business, it’s just not feasible for everyone who is just getting started and we understand that. You may not even need a full program but aren’t sure exactly what you need…this course will show you. From taxes to insurance, one-on-one’s to group training, how to have a low risk practice and much more…this course covers it.

After speaking with thousands of you over the last couple of months and surveying coaches, we’ve realized that many of you need to be able to start building, start signing clients, start earning, and start filling up your bank account balance TODAY, and we’re 100% committed to making this a reality for you.

In this program, you’ll learn what steps you need to take to start your health coaching business, what steps to take to start signing clients immediately, and our rinse and repeat approach for helping every client achieve goals and results (regardless of their current condition or health goal).

Oh, and by the way, the option to upgrade to the full certification program is available to you at any time after you’ve successfully completed the Health Coach Career Accelerator (and we’ll even deduct what you’ve paid for this program from the certification program fee).

But who knows – you might find yourself so successful after completing this program that there is no need for you to complete the full certification program.

That’s okay too! All we care about is that you are progressing in your business and people are getting the help they need and the health they want.

Listen, we believe that this will be the best money you ever spend if you’re truly serious about building your practice and becoming a leader in the health coaching industry.

And, if for whatever reason, you’re not satisfied within 5 days of purchase and you can show us that you’ve put in the work to make your goals a reality, we’ll refund your investment.

Here’s what happens next.

Simply process your payment on the order form now and you’ll get instant access to the Health Coach Career Accelerator. It’s that simple.

Then, commit to completing the program as quickly as possible and watch your career and your business transform.

How does that sound?

The way I see it, if you’re not as successful as you want to be right now, you have three options.

1) You can do nothing and continue dreaming about building your dream functional health coaching practice one day

2) You can invest thousands upon thousands of dollars and months upon months of your time into another certification program (which might be the right choice for you if you have the funds to invest and are 100% sure health coaching is the career for you).

3) Or, you can do what successful coaches are doing with us and join the Health Coach Career Accelerator today, implement exactly what I teach you, and be so happy with your business that you that you won’t look back.  If you have a certification already you’ll be even happier to be able to take that knowledge out into the world and actually use it.

The decision is yours, but the opportunity is here. Think about it: Would you get your hair cut at a car dealer? No. Then don’t take one more certification course or hire one more business coach who has ever been a coach.

So if you have any questions at all, reach out to our team right away and we’ll make sure none of your questions go unanswered.

Your First Health Coaching Clients – Introduction to Our 3-Step Coaching Method

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 6 in 10 American adults have a chronic disease and 4 in 10 have two or more!

This explains why the health coaching market is a $6 billion dollar service industry and is expected to grow to $7.85 billion by 2022.

Americans need help…they need health coaches who can educate them on healthier lifestyle habits and motivate them to make sustainable changes.

Yet, so many health coaches struggle with getting clients because they don’t understand how to effectively market their businesses. Because of this, no one wins!

I want to make sure you finish this program with clients, so I’m giving you all of my top strategies for filling up your new practice with clients…strategies that allowed me to build a waitlist health coaching practice.

Here’s some of what we’ll cover:

  • Exactly how to close more clients with the free consultation
  • ​​How to guarantee potential clients view you as an expert so that you’re taken seriously as a health coach
  • What language to use when you end the consultation so you’ll have clients eager to sign up with you

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the differences between the certification program and the Career Accelerator program?

Our certification program is our comprehensive functional health coaching course that’s designed to be the first and last stop in your health coaching career. It’s for aspiring health coaches who want access to the blueprint for functional health coaching success and want professional support from Carmen as well as access to a community of some of the smartest health coaches. Our Accelerator program is not a certification program. It’s for aspiring health coaches who want to start building their business, signing clients and earning an income before investing in a more comprehensive certification program. It’s also for already-certified health coaches who are already operating a business, but who want to learn how to build their businesses quicker and get access to Carmen’s formula for success.

If I'm an IFHC student, should I enroll in this program?

No! If you are a student, you already have access to everything offered.

If I invest in this Career Accelerator Program, can I still join the certification program at a later date if I wish?

Yes! Absolutely, and we encourage it. We’ll even deduct what you’ve paid for this program from the total cost of the certification program if you decide to move forward. However, it’s not mandatory.

Do you offer payment plans?

We currently offer a four month payment plan.

How long will I have access to this program for?

You’ll have access to the program for 4 months after you purchase.

If I'm not 100% satisfied, what is your refund policy?

Your satisfaction is guaranteed or we’ll refund 100% of your investment as long as your request is within 5 days of purchase.
