10 Influential Health and Wellness Coaches to Follow

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).

1. Anya Perry

Who She Is: You might recognize this certified health coach and productivity expert from the Habits to Thrive Summit. When she’s not hosting online events like this one held last fall, she’s helping tired online business owners maximize their energy and master self-discipline so they can excel in their business and personal life through healthy habits and powerful shifts in mindset.

Where To Follow Her: Catch her on Instagram @anya.perry, on her podcast: The Habit Queen, or in her Unstoppable Entrepreneur Academy course through her website.

2. Andrea Beaman

Who She Is: As a holistic health coach, natural foods chef, and herbalist—not to mention an educator, speaker, and best-selling author, Andrea is passionate about teaching ancient healing wisdom to modern people. She proves that you don’t have to pick just one way to share your knowledge and expertise with your niche.

Where To Follow Her: See what she’s up to on Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, or on her website.

3. Joe Condora

5. Adam Bornstein

Who He Is: Adam describes his company, Born Fitness, as something that resulted from the frustration of conflicting ideas and empty promises in the world of fitness and nutrition. As a New York Times bestselling author, researcher, award-winning fitness and nutrition editor, and coach, his no-nonsense approach cuts through the confusion with clear answers and expert advice.

Feeling Inspired?

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.
