“Primary nutrition, combined with exercise, has changed my life. You could say it was my personal project to fight the pandemic, made possible thanks to working from home. I plan to become a coach myself but I work in a totally different field (accounting) I have no experience in science, nutrition, fitness etc other than reading blogs like this I have ZERO experience Recommendations for getting started Is the Primal Health Coach program suitable for beginners How long does it take to complete Do you cover the business side or just the nutrition?
Hooray! So fantastic that you have turned working from home into a life-changing and wellness-promoting project, Patrick! It’s really true: just a few years (or less) of consistent effort can change the state of our health and our life trajectory.
Fantastic too that you’re eager to take what you’ve learned and accomplished to the next level. The Primordial Health Coach Certification is a great way to achieve this.
Like a coach, I can attest that there is a depth of knowledge that only comes from teaching and guiding others. Whether you make health coaching a new career, a side job, or another project of self-learning and discovery, the training is transformative. Let’s take a look at your specific questions and cover the basics of Primal Health Coach.
Is the Primal Health Coach certification for beginners?
In short, yes! You don’t need any prior coaching experience or prior knowledge of science or nutrition to sign up and be successful.
Many established healthcare professionals and others with similar backgrounds complete certification to deepen their knowledge, enhance their credentials, and better support their clients and patients.
That said, many others who join have little to no experience in the health and wellness field. Some are regulars at Mark’s Daily Apple and just want to take their Primal knowledge to the next level. Others, like you, are considering a career change that incorporates what has worked for them and how they make a living.
Others don’t know much about primal food and life (at least not yet!) but are drawn to the growing field of health coaching and the opportunity to start a thriving business they can do from anywhere.
Not “just” food
One thing that defines Primal Health Coach Institute Outside of similar programs, we understand the importance of solid nutrition and lifestyle knowledge AND that this alone is not enough to be successful as a coach or business.
As you’d expect, we cover Fundamentals of food and lifeincluding the science behind how they work and how they can be adapted to meet the needs and goals of different customers.
This includes nutrition, of course, but also the other 10 Primary Plan Rules. We dig deeper into the what, how and why, explaining the details while taking care to use clear language that you can share with others. We also provide extensive resources, allowing you to take your learning even further if you wish.
Equally important, the PHCI provides more than health education. We help you develop coaching skills and learn how to start a coaching business and grow it. This comprehensive preparation is essential to stand out in the sea of trainers and help your clients achieve real and lasting results.
To go further, we make sure our graduates can start making money as soon as they have their certification in hand by providing a wealth of resources, made-for-you templates, and even a ready-to-use coaching program. ‘use.

We also have a close-knit community of trainers who support each other in our mission to promote healthier, more vibrant lives.
How long does it take to become a Primal Health Coach?
