Our Philosophy


There’s a lot of information available on how to be healthy – but it’s not always maintainable in the busy lives that most people are now living. The IAWP’s Wellness Coach Certification program was developed to help you to teach people how to embark on a new healthy lifestyle that they can maintain with ease. You’ll learn about healthy eating, total mind-body wellness, healthy lifestyle habits, and specifically how to coach clients, lead wellness workshops and build a practice you love! IAWP Certified Wellness Coaches take a holistic approach to wellness and the body, addressing key lifestyle factors such as career, relationships, and physical activity. We combine proven nutritional assessments with intuitive eating training, life coaching, and stress management techniques so you have the tools to guide people to the healthiest, happiest version of themselves. Just some of the topics you’ll learn in your training are:

  • Holistic Health & Nutrition
  • Traditional Diets & Modern Foods
  • Antioxidants & Superfoods
  • Vitamins & Minerals
  • Healthy Lifestyles
  • Emotional Well-Being
  • Being Healthy On-the-Go
  • Preventative Care & Healing
  • Self-Care Techniques
  • Conscious Eating & Living
  • Mindfulness & Stress Reduction
  • Seasonal Balance
  • Body Typing for Health and Wellness
  • Whole Body Fitness

“I′ve finally discovered how to love my work and stay inspired! Before I even graduated from my Wellness Coach Certification program, the IAWP had shown me how to schedule and book my first wellness events so I could build my confidence in public speaking, start sharing my work right away, and have a ready-to-go system to earn income in my new career. I am now partnering with a major natural foods store and connecting with the ideal population of clients who need my support.”

Bryce Levine, Certified Wellness Coach
IAWP Wellness Coach Graduate & Get Real Plan Leader

Before enrolling in the IAWP Wellness Coach Certification program, I was working as an RN in a doctor’s office helping patients manage their chronic conditions such as diabetes and obesity. I had known for quite sometime that my views of conventional healthcare had drastically changed and I was longing for a way to truly make an impact in people’s health that was more in line with my beliefs. I knew in my soul that the medical field was not addressing the biggest reason for our nation’s poor health: nutrition and prevention. I was a;sp looking for more training in coaching as well as to learn the tools needed to take my experience forward toward a business of my own. I found all of that with the IAWP.

Immediately upon enrolling at the IAWP as a student in their Wellness Coach Certification program, I felt validated in my beliefs about wellness and true health and truly supported in these beliefs throughout the program. I learned life changing business knowledge that will now serve me in starting my own business. In addition, I also learned that truly being well was not just about nutrition. I learned about myself spiritually and emotionally and how I really wasn’t taking care of that part of me. The IAWP helped me to heal those things and I am so grateful. I am so excited to share with others how amazing their lives can be when they can achieve health and well being!

Personally, I feel the IAWP has empowered me in so many ways that I know confidently that my life will be how I want it to be and the empowerment will pass on to those I work with as well. Thank You, Suzanne Monroe & the IAWP team!

“I am LOVING the IAWP Wellness Coach Training program so much! It really is a perfect blend of academic knowledge in wellness, coaching guidance, and holistic business development. It’s been great to go deeper into subjects I am already passionate about in health and wellness. And the coursework has altered my personal approach to food and wellness already in just the first 30 days in a very positive way. I look forward to all the learning yet to come!”

Robin ByersBeing in my final year of Teacher’s College, naturally I began to question the direction in which I would like to take my career once I graduate. I knew that I wanted to work with others but, not in the conventional setting. I love how being a Wellness Coach allows me to do the things I love while inspiring and helping others to do the same. The holistic approach is one that I have been interested for many years as many factors affect the wellbeing of an individual from how many hours of sleep one gets, to relationship statuses and toxins in the environment. Being vegan and the Fitness Coordinator of my University gym, healthy and active living as well as getting people excited about nourishing their bodies is not knew to me. However, the Get Real Plan through the International Association of Wellness Professionals bridged the gap for me between customer service and marketing, and gave me the knowledge I needed in order to help people achieve their goals and to live passionately each and every day. I love how IAWP uses the Get Real Plan which ensures me that I will be certified under a renowned program and enable me to be the best Wellness Coach I can be for my clients. I can’t wait to graduate and enter the field in helping people achieve their full potential without the use of harmful prescriptions. Each person has the power to heal themselves, if they look in the right places and ask the right questions.
