Program Details

This year-long program includes:

  • Six months of robust pre-practicum education on the art and practice of coaching, functional health, ancestral nutrition and lifestyle, and professional development
  • Six months of practicum during which you’ll get hands-on experience coaching with real people
  • An innovative, forward-thinking approach to learning that helps you master content without getting overwhelmed

  • Live weekly sessions and small-group coaching, plus a live monthly Q&A with Chris

  • An emphasis on practical application, mentorship, and peer-to-peer coaching
  • Training on how to find and market to potential clients and a kit of materials to help you set up your office so you’re ready for business
  • 100% virtual access, no travel required

What makes the ADAPT Health Coach program different from other programs?

  • An innovative approach to learning based on best practices with an emphasis on practical application so you can master the material without feeling overwhelmed.
  • The only program that takes an ancestral approach to diet, lifestyle, and behavior, with specific recommendations that are based on both peer-reviewed evidence and clinical experience.
  • Teaches you to create customized programs for your clients, based on their unique circumstances and goals, rather than simply offering vague, one-size-fits-all guidance that ignores their individuality.
  • Gives you a Functional Medicine context, without leading you beyond the legal scope of a health coach practice, so that you can more effectively collaborate with patients and practitioners.
  • Is directed by a global thought leader in Functional Medicine and the application of the ancestral approach and Paleo principles to the prevention and reversal of chronic disease.
  • Features content delivered and taught by the same experts who created it. That means that top experts in each of the core competency areas (e.g., motivational interviewing, character strengths, stages of change, etc.) host the sessions themselves.

Email #1: Change Agent

SUBJ: Ever considered being a health coach?

What if you could make a living … by making a difference? And what if that meant doing what you do best, what you’re most passionate about, and changing people’s lives in the process?

That’s exciting and fulfilling work. And it’s the job of a health coach.

If you’re passionate about health and wellness, maybe the idea of becoming a coach has crossed your mind—but then you worried you’d need a background in medicine or to be a health “expert.” Not true.

Chris Kresser is one of the most well-known names in Functional Medicine and Paleo nutrition and is the founder of Kresser Institute. If you’re a fan of his work, as I am, you know that he’s not just dedicated to helping people live healthier lives—he wants to change the future of medicine. And he says we can’t do it without more health coaches—because they’re the only ones who can help people change their behavior.

That’s why he calls coaches “change agents.”

Chris is serious about getting health coaches the training they need to do this critical work. And he’s just announced the launch of his brand new ADAPT Health Coach Training Program, a comprehensive, year-long program designed to train, equip, and prepare health coaches for exciting, fulfilling careers.

If part of you is even thinking about changing careers, stepping up your own coach training, or trying something totally new, I can’t recommend this program highly enough.

You could not only change someone else’s life—you could change the future of medicine.

Email #2: Ancestral Advantage

SUBJ: The only diet that reverses chronic disease—and the only program that offers it

You’ve probably heard of the Paleo diet. You know that it’s healthy because it emphasizes whole, healthy foods that we evolved to eat.

But what you might not realize is that it’s actually an evidence-based diet proven to reverse and prevent chronic disease.

Best-selling author Chris Kresser, the founder of Kresser Institute, is one of the most well-known names in Paleo nutrition, hands down. But he doesn’t just promote Paleo to a small dedicated tribe of Paleo eaters; he wants to take ancestral health to the world to stem the tide of chronic disease.

If you’re a fan of his work, as we are, you know that he’s not just dedicated to helping people live healthier lives—he wants to change the future of medicine.

To that end, he’s just launched the ADAPT Health Coach Training Program, a year-long, comprehensive program designed to train aspiring and existing coaches and set them up for successful careers while changing the future of medicine.

And it’s the ONLY functional health coaching certification program that also teaches an ancestral approach to diet and lifestyle.

Why ancestral health? Here’s the thinking behind it:

  • Like all organisms, humans adapted to survive and thrive in a particular environment.
  • Our environment has changed dramatically since the days of our hunter–gatherer ancestors.
  • The human body has not caught up to the changes in the modern environment (processed foods, artificial light, largely sedentary lives)—causing a mismatch between our genes and the world around us.
  • This mismatch is the driving factor behind the modern epidemic of chronic disease.
  • The Ancestral health lifestyle seeks to realign your body with the environment.

If the idea of gaining an in-depth and robust foundation in the principles of ancestral health and functional health appeals to you and you’d like to learn how a career in coaching can position you to change the future of medicine, you’ve got to check out Chris’s program.

Email #3: Chronic Illness

SUBJ: Seeking health coaches—stat!

It should come as no surprise to you that our healthcare system is struggling. And fact is, doctors alone can’t fix it.

Consider these frightening statistics:

  • 1 in 2 Americans has a chronic disease
  • 1 in 3 Americans has prediabetes or diabetes
  • 86% of our healthcare spending goes toward chronic disease
  • Chronic disease will generate $47 trillion in healthcare costs by 2030
  • 7 of 10 deaths are caused by chronic disease

This will be the first generation of kids expected to live shorter lifespans than their parents.

And there’s not a pill in the world that can address it. The only thing that can? Lifestyle and behavioral changes.

This is why health coaches who can work in collaboration with integrative and Functional Medicine practitioners are in such high demand—because of the critical role they play in helping people make sustainable, life saving changes.

No one’s more keenly aware of this than Chris Kresser, best-selling author and founder of Kresser Institute. We’ve been big fans of Chris’s work, and we’re thrilled to hear that he’s launching his first program ever specifically for health coaches.

It’s called the ADAPT Health Coach Training Program, and he has just opened the doors to enrollment. Because we believe in the work he’s doing, we wanted to share information about it with you. It’s a tremendous opportunity—not just to change your own life, but to have the impact you’re dying to make.

Email #4: Program Overview

SUBJ: Doors are open to the ADAPT Health Coach Training Program!

If you’ve ever considered (flirted with, thought about, put off) the idea of becoming a health coach, now’s the time to get serious about it.

Why? Because one of the biggest names in Functional Medicine and ancestral health has opened enrollment for a coaching program unlike any other we’ve seen.

Chris Kresser is a best-selling author and the founder of Kresser Institute. If you’re a fan of his work, as we are, you know that he’s not just dedicated to helping people live healthier lives—he wants to change the future of medicine.

And we can’t do it without more health coaches to be the boots on the ground for behavior and lifestyle change. To that end, he’s opened the doors to his brand new, year-long program, the ADAPT Health Coach Training Program.

Chris says we need more health coaches—they’re the key to stemming the tide of chronic disease, which is no match for our ailing healthcare system.

Chris is dedicated to training the next generation of health coaches who want to change the future of medicine. And his program pretty much blows the doors off most other programs out there.

Ancestral Health

If there was one evidence-based diet shown to prevent and reverse chronic disease, wouldn’t you want to know about it?

Ancestral health is the only approach to diet and lifestyle that can do this. And there hasn’t been one coaching program that teaches it in a comprehensive way—until now.

Chris Kresser, founder of Kresser Institute, has just opened the doors to his ADAPT Health Coach Training Program, the only program that doesn’t just teach coaching skills and principles, but also emphasizes ancestral health—and how to customize it to any specific health need.

And when you can do that for yourself and others, you could change the future of health in this country.

Stat-Based

Our healthcare system is broken. How do we know? Consider these frightening statistics:

  • 1 in 2 Americans has a chronic disease
  • 1 in 3 Americans has prediabetes or diabetes
  • 86% of our healthcare spending goes toward chronic disease
  • 7 of 10 deaths are caused by chronic disease

There isn’t a doctor or pill that can solve this problem. The answer: MORE HEALTH COACHES.

Chris Kresser, founder of Kresser Institute, has just opened the doors to the ADAPT Health Coach Training Program, a comprehensive, year-long program that fully equips coaches to take on this challenge.

Learn everything you need to know—from coaching skills and career development to functional and ancestral health principles so that you can play a critical role in stemming the tide of chronic disease.

General

When it comes to health coaching programs, it’s the Wild West out there.

Some offer just straight-up coaching skills. Others focus solely on nutrition (and provide little more than a survey of diets). Still others center on marketing, with no real emphasis on skill building.

What’s rare is the program that covers all of these things—plus an emphasis on the only evidence-based approach to diet and lifestyle proven to reverse and prevent chronic disease.

For a limited time, enrollment is open for the ADAPT Health Coach Training Program, founded by best-selling author and Functional Medicine expert Chris Kresser, founder of Kresser Institute.

If you’re looking to start a career in health coaching, invest in your education in a way that fully prepares you to do this work confidently and masterfully. Enroll in the ADAPT program today!
