Hi World-Changer!

The Health & Life Coaching field is an exciting place to build a business! 

However, it can be a tough area to serve and grow a business these days (especially maneuvering it as a Christian Coach!) … 

...tough, that is, if you are trying to do it ALONE. 

Or from scratch. 

Coach, we know how you feel!

That’s why we established the Christian Health Coach Academy…to give you a warm place to learn how to build a godly business beside other faith-based coaches…and to provide a uniquely powerful program you can use in your own business. 


Our Christian Health Coach Certification course is different than the rest.

It's a robust curriculum, full of Biblical guidance and practical application techniques for you to use in your coaching business!

Our students are able to start building their business AS they learn new topics each week, which translates into INCOME and IMPACT immediately for them!

It is a program that has been tested, proven and constantly tweaked to deliver REAL results to your clients.

Our Certified Coach Curriculum is set apart because...

It’s a unique combination of action-producing strategies AND faith-building activities. 

This is a beautiful 20+ week experience, creating a STRONG spiritual and practical foundation for YOU to build your coaching business on.

Your mentors here are “in the trenches” with you! We're bringing our combined experience, skills and strategies to this curriculum and support group. 

The need for you is SO GREAT! So many are hurting, and looking for your help...they just need you to bring it to them!

It is such an exciting time for you to serve your community as a Christian Health Coach – as you know, they NEED you and the unique gifts you bring!

By taking this course, you can begin working less on the “figuring out” of it all, and more on the execution of action that produces income AND influence!

FAQ's About Our Program

Here's the questions we commonly receive and our answers to them!

  • I don’t live in the US. Can I still participate in this course?

    We’d love to welcome you to the course, no matter where you live! So far, we’ve been proud to graduate new Certified Coaches from all over the US, as well as from England, South America, Australia and Canada! The LIVE component could be a bit tricky, due to differences in time zones, but we’d make adjustments and we always offer recordings to all the meetings. We want to include you in the support, no matter where you’re from.

  • Is this course all I’ll need to begin or grow my Health Coaching business?

    Yes, this Certification Course truly is a business-in-a-box, a complete package of everything you need to make your business profitable and sustainable! We made sure to include everything you need to set up your business, align it legally, meet new prospects, close and serve them well as happy clients, and even manage your time and tasks as an entrepreneur! All the business training you need to get started or grow in your business is included. From setting up your brand, message and mission, to getting stronger in your communication skills. Setting up your online storefront (your website!) and establishing your social media presence and habits. It’s all here!

  • What are your qualifications in forming this program?

    The creator of this program, Coach Bess, was a busy health coach with a full practice for over 10 years. She created multiple programs and enrolled hundreds of clients in small groups, Challenges, and coaching experiences. Building her client base, she served over 300+ clients and helped many of them find hope and healing in the time they coached with her. As she was busy building her business, other Christian Health Coaches began to ask her how she was doing it. So she created a program for her peers, initially at no cost, then later, more formally (anything to help reach the thousands who are desperate for hope and healthy living guidance!) Since initially creating this program, we continue to add valuable training to it from not only Coach Bess and her research and experience, but also other qualified contributors!

What our happy graduates are saying...

“I am so grateful to have found the Coaching Academy as I had been seeking an outstanding Christ- centered, Biblically-based health coaching program…and that’s exactly what I found with this! Coach Bess is an amazing leader along with the other coach/trainers. I have learned so much in the short time I’ve been a part and am already incorporating what I’ve learned as I design my own coaching practice. I will be recommending this program to my colleagues who want to become certified in the health coaching field. There is no other program I’m aware of that offers such a robust combination of training, support and resources than this.”

~ Jana Denninger, Indiana 

“The  Christian Coach Academy is a fabulous opportunity for faith based coaches. The solid curriculum and the availability of experienced mentor coaches who are willing to share their expertise make this program priceless. I highly recommend this Coach Academy to anyone who is interested in meshing faith with practice. This gives you the “meat and potatoes” of health and wellness coaching. The “gravy” is the continued dedicated support of Coach Bess, the mentor coaches and the greater community of graduated Coaches who are out there making the world a healthier place, one person at a time.”

~ Lisa Coniglio, New York - 2014 Graduate

“Wow…how does one begin to describe how blessed and enriched and humbled they are to be part of this incredible, beautiful anointed group of women. I don’t think you ladies have any idea of the quality and professional level of training you have put together. Blows me away! CORPORATIONS don’t do it this well!!”

~ Betty M., Michigan

After almost 40 years as a staff nurse at a large metropolitan hospital, I retired. I was retired, but now I am officially re-fired! Recently I heard the Spirit of the Lord say to me, “It’s okay to dream again.” And as I prepared my homework assignment and looked at my mission, God reminded me of past dreams that He had placed on my heart, but I had forgotten. My mission has not changed, but my vision is coming forth with greater clarity. I started reading one of the recommended books, “Taking the Limits Off God” the other day and all I can say is Wow!!!”

~ Jo Cornelison, Ohio
