If you work in the fitness industry, more likely than not, nutrition questions are already a part of your weekly routine. Due to the volume of questions, you may find yourself considering adding nutrition coaching to your programs and certifications. Here are two things to study if you are looking into becoming a nutrition coach.
Know Before You Coach:
- How many hours do you want to work? Look at your current schedule. Whether you are already working in the fitness industry or not, determine how many hours you can feasibly add to your current schedule. Essentially determine whether you’re pursuing a full-time or part-time job as a nutrition coach.
- Estimate your monthly income. Precision Nutrition, one of the world’s leaders in online nutrition education and certification recently surveyed its graduates to determine the average monthly income. The average monthly income for a part-time nutrition coach was $450-1,550 per month. The average monthly income for a full-time nutrition coach was $2,300-6,000 per month. These are just averages of the data, so you have the ability to push the boundaries of monthly income.
Aside from the increase in income, there are several other benefits of adding nutrition coaching to your education. If you’re looking into nutrition coaching, here are three of the top benefits to consider.
Top 3 Benefits of Nutrition Coaching:
