About Certification Systems
Combine Online Training with Real, Personal Support and Get the Best of Both Worlds in Your Coach Training
When it comes to wellness coaching, systems are essential because they allow you to focus on what you do best. Without them, you’ll face having to reinvent the wheel and create everything from scratch on your own. This takes a huge amount of time, energy, and resources, plus it takes time away from doing the thing you love the most … wellness coaching!
When you have systems in place, you’ll finally see shifts in your work and business. You’ll start to see results far more quickly. This isn’t one of those things that just works for some people, either. We’ve seen it work for our Wellness Coach students over and over again. As soon as they learn and implement our systems, their businesses finally take off and thrive.
Four Powerful Systems
There are four specific systems you’ll need to have in place to successfully run a wellness coaching business. These are the systems our founder, Suzanne Monroe, developed over fourteen years ago when she created her own six-figure wellness coaching practice. Since then, these systems have been fine-tuned, updated, and time tested with the students who have gone through the IAWP Holistic Wellness Coaching program.
Here are the four powerful systems we stand by and that you’ll learn how to implement through our Holistic Wellness Coach certification program.
1. Wellness System
Most new coaches have to take the time to first create client handouts, newsletters, articles and blog posts, and more. This part of starting a business can be time consuming and postpone your ability to actually start working as a Wellness Coach. When you train with the IAWP, you’ll get all of these ready made for you. Imagine going to a workshop with all of your materials done for you already or showing up to help a client with all of your session materials ready to go. You’ll get a done-for-you wellness system that will make it possible for you to get started right away.
2. Coaching System
It’s important to have a coaching method that actually works to help people make transformations. But it’s near impossible to do if you don’t have a coaching system in place. A coaching system is a step-by-step system you can follow in every client session, so you never have to figure it out on your own or wonder if you are saying the right thing. Imagine having blueprints that guide you every step of the way as you coach your clients. The IAWP provides a proven system to help you streamline your coaching practice in a way that really will get your clients the results they want.
3. Client Attraction System
Do you know yet how you will find coaching clients? Ideally, you don’t want to just be calling friends and family as that’s just a short term solution. Imagine instead that clients come to you looking for a wellness coach that does exactly what you do. This happens when you have a proven client attraction system in place where people seek you out rather than you seeking them out. We’ll teach you how to attract clients and become the go-to for holistic wellness support.
4. Client Enrollment System
It’s important to know how to make the leap from meeting a potential client to actually doing sessions with them. This system is all about how you talk about what you do and how to get them to sign up to get started with your program. If you don’t have any experience with this, you can waste a lot of time trying to figure it out. Imagine having a system that you can just follow with word-for- word scripts. You’ll have the right questions to ask and will always know the right things to say that inspires people to want to work with you. You won’t have to convince anyone of anything and clients will come to you naturally.
These four systems will help you focus on helping people and creating a Holistic Wellness Coaching practice that you love.
One Graduate's Story
Leigha was a new mom with a newborn baby and she was dreading going back to a 9-5 job. She wanted to be able to stay home with her baby instead of returning to a desk and being gone most of the day.
Leigha followed our systems and she successfully launched her coaching business after graduation. She even signed on 20 clients before finishing her training.
Since then, she’s created a massive social media following and she’s doing work she loves from home. These systems helped her hit the ground running with a successful Wellness Coaching business so she could also be a stay-at-home mom.
You can listen to Leigh share her story in the video below.

Frequently Asked Questions
Holistic Wellness Coaches are professionals who take an integrative approach to help people learn to make healthy lifestyle changes. They take into account more than just nutrition, fitness or simple habit changes, but all aspects of a person’s health and life in true holistic fashion. IAWP Holistic Wellness Coaches are highly trained coaches, providing support and accountability for their clients so they can make lasting lifestyle changes.
Today there are many people calling themselves “Health Coaches”. They have varying educations and backgrounds, some with extensive training, others with no training at all. Health Coaching is a general term that does not tell people what area of health you help with or your specific approach. Many Health Coaches focus solely on nutrition, exercise and habit changes.
“Wellness Coach” is a more specific term. It denotes that more than just general health is being considered in the approach. Wellness signfies well-being and lifestyle aspects beyond food and exercise.
When evaluating various health and wellness coaching programs, it is important to understand the difference between becoming a generalist and a specialist. Whether a training program calls their graduates a “health coach” or a “wellness coach,” they often have a particular angle that they work from.
Holistic Wellness Coaching is a specialty term in which professionals will take a holistic approach to wellness, considering all aspects of a person’s well-being as well as the support provided involves holistic remedies, therapies, and a more natural approach to wellness.
While generalist coaches can be useful, you’re guaranteed greater success when you choose a specialist track like Holistic Wellness. You probably know that in the field of medicine a doctor who is a generalist is paid less than a specialist simply because of their training and industry demands. This is also true for a health and wellness coach.
The International Association of Wellness Professionals is recognized world wide and we have students from numerous countries all over the world.
Our Holistic Wellness Coach Certification Program is CCE accredited by the International Coaching Federation, the international gold standard in training accreditation.
The IAWP is an accredited school by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners and approved by the Canadian Health Coach Alliance. Our Wellness Coach Certification program is also approved by the UK Health Coaches Association.
With approval and accreditation from leading organizations across the globe, you can feel confident that our curriculum has met a high standard in terms of the education and support you will receive.
The IAWP is committed to supporting our students while in the program and for the life of their career. Our curriculum is built on support and systems which set the foundation for launching a thriving coaching practice. Our certification is unique because it’s built on an experiential learning method where coaches-in-training receive a full immersion in their learning with unlimited support. For example…
Our students have unlimited opportunity to receive personal coaching from our IAWP Master Coaches during our weekly Live Coaching Labs. You can learn from multiple mentors and experience different coaching styles during these group coaching labs. We offer a wide variety of days and times for our students to gain personal support in these highly transformational training sessions.
Our students also have unlimited access to our live training calls and workshops each month, where you will receive personal support from a Master Coach, a guest teacher or our Founder, Suzanne Monroe.
These events are live, interactive workshops held over video conference and are a great way to connect with our faculty and fellow students, with a laser focus on subject matters related to wellness, coaching, business and mindset.
Our mission at the IAWP is to provide the most supportive online education experience in the industry and we take our mission seriously. The way we deliver our training and support is what makes our program unique from any other training in the online education field today.
Our unique training method is called The Immersive Transformation Training Method™ (ITTM), where you will personally experience and practice everything you learn in your program. This process allows you to master your own wellness, become a highly effective coach, and launch a profitable practice…all during your training.
Unlike most online education, where you “read, watch and learn”, here at the IAWP you will “read, watch, learn and DO” through our hands-on learning experience. ITTM includes interactive training, hands-on application, application modules, real-world experience, small group coaching labs and ongoing support. This full immersion means you always have a place to get direct and personalized support and you not only end up with superior knowledge of coaching, but more importantly, you have the ability to coach.
We also give our students all the tools and systems they’ll need to be confident as new Wellness Coaches, without having to reinvent the wheel or start everything from scratch. You’ll get to build on a foundation that’s guaranteed to help you create success in your new business or career path.
With a large international student population, our students form lasting friendships and peer support relationships with students from around the globe and in their local communities. We don’t stop offering support after graduation, though.
One of the most impactful parts of an education with the IAWP is that we offer lifetime support for all of our students. Our community is always there to provide advice, feedback, and inspiration, no matter where you are in your Holistic Wellness Coach career journey. Don’t just take our word for it, check out what our students are saying!
The short answer is Yes! In fact, we are so confident you will get your first client by the time you graduate, that we guarantee your success. If you follow the steps in our program and fail to attract your first client by graduation, we will refund your tuition and you can keep your certification.
At the IAWP, our program is based on our Immersive Transformation Training Method™. This method ensures you are applying your knowledge during every stage of your training and this includes taking the right steps to attract your ideal clients. Through our business training, you will follow our Coach Launch system, which is designed to take you step by step through a process that will allow you to attract and sign up your first 10 clients, or your next 10 clients, again and again.
When you enroll in our Holistic Wellness Coach Certification program, you will receive Lifetime Access to our training, plus continued education and support for the life of your career. This is very unique in the online education industry and we are unaware of any other organization that provides this level of access and ongoing support.
This also means that you will be part of a community that is committed to supporting one another. Unlike other training programs where access to other students might be limited to your current class, at the IAWP you will have the opportunity to connect with former students and grads who are always excited to share their experiences and pay it forward. It’s truly a unique community like no other.
While you do not need continuing education credits to maintain your IAWP Holistic Wellness Coach Certification, our training is recognized and accredited by several organizations, like ICF where our program can earn you CCEs.
Our primary focus is on giving you the systems and support you need to build a thriving practice, helping others.
Our business training can be applied to building a practice in your local community or creating an online coaching business. Some students prefer to work locally, others go straight to online. The choice is your and will largely depend on your preference.
Through our Coach Launch Fast Track system, you will learn how to set up your business and determine which career track best fits for you. You will learn online marketing basics, social media, video conferencing and other virtual business tools. You’ll also personally experience virtual coaching and online workshops through your training.
Because launching an online practice requires some additional technical skills, we encourage most of our students to apply our systems in their local community first and then expand to online as they build proof of concept with their niche, their signature coaching program and our client attraction strategies.
