Health coaches often have a qualification in sports, personal training or nutrition. Otherwise if they are coaching an illness they are likely to have experience with that illness or they have been carers of people with chronic illness. Health care industry coaches generally have a background in the health industry and grief coaches have experienced grief themselves. As with most coaching niches, the coaches own passion and life experience plays a key role in identifying a coaching need.
