Last year, we featured these 10 influential health coaches to follow to show you how they’re doing it and who they’re doing it for (aka their niche). This year we’re back for more with another 10 health and wellness coaches you’ll want to add to your list, from ancestral health experts to fitness pros to coaches who help other health coaches build successful businesses.
I feel like I’m the most productive when I’m inspired—seeing what other people are doing, creating, and putting out into the world. And while I’m kind of a social media scroller, I love getting stopped in my tracks by other health and wellness coaches who are out there really owning it—confidently and consistently sharing their message in a powerful, fearless, and inspiring way (regardless of how many followers or subscribers they have).

As you probably noticed, there are lots of ways put to yourself out there are as a health and wellness coach—and lots of platforms to do it on. The one thing all of these coaches have in common though is that they’re crystal clear with their message, whether they’re posting Q&A videos on YouTube, sharing their expert insights on Instagram, or creating and selling signature courses. That’s what makes them so influential. And if you’re starting to play the comparison game, don’t. Use these 10 coaches as examples of how other people are positioning themselves to their niche audience. Remember, if they’re out there doing it, you can too.
