Top 3 Health Coach Jobs You Can Do from Home

Last Updated: June 23, 2022

One of the perks of working as a health coach is the ability to work from home.

It’s no surprise that working from home has been proven to increase productivity, job satisfaction and employee retention.

Can you picture your work day starting without a daily commute and being able to work in the comfort of your own home?

If you’re considering a career as a health coach and the idea of working from home seems very appealing, then look no further!

Here we list three home-based health coach career options for you to consider.

1. Work for a Company

With more and more people looking for a holistic approach to health care, the demand for health coaching is growing. An ever-increasing number of health-based companies are employing home-based health coaches to provide a digital, virtual or telephonic health coaching service for their clients.

For example:

  1. Vida Health is a health and wellness app that pairs patients with a virtual health coach to provide on demand health coaching. Vida is rapidly expanding and is in search of health coaches.
  2. Exos is a human performance company looking to recruit health coaches to work as part of an allied health team, with the option of working from home.
  3. Health insurance companies such as Cigna are offering home-based contracts to health coaches as part of a collaborative and integrative health care team, which also comprises nutritionists, pharmacists, MD and behavioral clinicians. Keep your eye out for health coach job listings here.

  1. Indeed
  2. Glassdoor
  3. Career Builder
  4. Simply Hired
  5. Monster
  6. Snag a Job
  7. Google Careers

2. Freelance Health Coaching

Setting up your own health coaching business is an exciting concept. Whether you work one-on-one with clients, run group health coaching classes, or an online health coaching program, being your own boss is hugely rewarding, and can be performed at home.

Attracting clients is a major aspect of your job as a self-employed health coach. Without clients, you won’t have a job! A successful online marketing strategy will involve sharing your business brand on social media to draw in clients.

Whilst the popular social media networks such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are great for getting your business brand out there, here we’ll explore two business-orientated online platforms you can use to expand your health coaching network.

1. LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a social media platform that is specifically designed for business professionals to connect with one another. Over 65 million professionals from all around the world from a diverse range of industries use LinkedIn.

Unlike other social media networks where your goal is to gain as many “friends” or “followers” as possible, LinkedIn is about developing strategic relationships; it’s not about the total number of connections you make, but rather, it’s about the quality of your connections from a business perspective.

LinkedIn is ideal for building connections for freelance work, as it works much like the “Six Degrees of Separation” concept, where you start by connecting with people that you know and through these connections you build a larger network filled with people who are interested in your health coaching services.

2. Upwork

Upwork is a popular freelance platform that connects skilled freelance professionals with jobs around the world. You can use this online platform to find health coach clients by posting about your services in Upwork, or by replying to a post from someone is looking for a health coach.

If you choose to go down the path of setting up your own health coaching business, you have control of the clients you take on and the services you provide.

3. Health Blog Writer

Another great working-from-home job option a certified Primal Health Coach can consider is freelance blog writing. With the number of online-based health, wellness and fitness companies rapidly growing, there are more and more companies wanting to share their health and wellness knowledge through a blog.

Many companies delegate or outsource blog writing and they’re looking for enthusiastic, passionate and dedicated health professionals like yourself to employ either as a freelancer or as a contracted employee.

Health-based blog writer positions can be found on LinkedIn, Upwork and the job search databases like Indeed and and Glassdoor.

Here we’ve listed three home-based health coaching job options a graduate of the Primal Health Coach program may want to consider. Maybe it’s time to enroll in the Primal Health Coach program today!
