Students Learn ‘How the Body Works’ First
An understanding of the human body, it’s systems and how illness and conditions can present, is key when working with clients as a Health Coach. For example, you will learn how food is digested and how nutrients are absorbed and utilised by the body. Students also gain an understanding of the body’s warning symptoms (Red Flags) and have confidence they know when to refer to a specialist.

“Huge thanks to Bobby as I thoroughly enjoyed this module. The lectures and supporting material were all incredibly detailed, informative and easy to understand. I feel inspired and educated and so many thanks for kicking off this course in such a super way. I’m very much looking forward to cracking on with the next section, Nutrition for Healthy Living. Thanks again, Amy.”
“I thought the lectures were absolutely brilliant. Bobby is so engaging and really good at explaining things. I thought the length of the lectures was just right as I have been doing 2 a week and have managed to balance the course well with my home life.”
“I absolutely enjoyed how Bobby conducts his lectures. He is very articulate and makes the lectures easy by providing analogies that are easily stored in the memory. I appreciated the fact he had additional and thorough explanation to back up the lecture handouts. Bobby made this module worthwhile. I was getting bit sad every-time a lecture ended, but excited to start another one.”
“I think the video modules were great. Very nicely explained, very thorough, really good presenter. Much deeper content then I was expecting, very happy about it. The knowledge stimulates me to live more healthily myself and I feel I will be very good at giving health advice with this background.”
“I thought Bobby was excellent at explaining the body systems and adding different anecdotes as he went along. He had a great style and manner about him which made it easier to absorb and learn. Overall I was very impressed. I really enjoyed all the naturopathic tips that he added in.”
“Thank you Bobby for flawless delivery and for the regular anecdotal stories which have been invaluable.”
“I have studying anatomy and physiology many time including at university and this is most engaged I have felt in my learning. I felt bobby had such a great way of explaining things which made me look at so many things a understand them better. I had a lot of breakthroughs with grasping concepts.”
“I especially enjoyed the lectures and content about the digestive tract and cancer, both of which I found fascinating and with easy take away tips on how to improve mine and my family’s health as well starting to take preventative measures now.”
“The digestive system was absolutely brilliant and contained so much information which i have heard being talked about and now I feel I can understand and join in conversations on certain topics. I also really enjoyed the cancer module. i found this very emotional to watch and I intend to make changes to my lifestyle and my families because of it.”

What our students say
“I just wanted to thank Dee for the most brilliant lectures. I have loved the course, and found her teaching so informative, and presented in such a calming, approachable way that it really helped me absorb all the information and kept me transfixed. Thank you so much. The notes are really well laid out and in a way that I could annotate them with all the invaluable additional information Dee gave around each slide.”
“The lecture notes were excellent and just enough content for each lecture. I loved the fact that you had to complete each lecture before the next one was unlocked. Dee Clough was fab in the videos. She was so easy to listen to and has such a calming voice. It was great to have the videos because they clarified any uncertainties that may have arisen in the notes.”
“Great lectures and explained thoroughly. I was completely fascinated with the information given. I really enjoyed the activities as it really tested my understanding.”
“I really enjoyed the whole module. Really loved the lecturer, she was very clear and confident and clearly very knowledgeable. I liked the way she explained things.”
“Very comprehensive! Brought up many things I was aware of but brought together the concepts very succinctly. Broad scope, wide ranging, comprehensive.Lots of information, real eye opener. So well structured with the slides first, then video to explain things and go through it.”
Fitness and Health
Oxygen is the body’s most important nutrient. A lack of oxygen (hypoxia) can drive many diseases including cancer. Optimum health and oxygen are not possible without movement. In this module, CNM teaches simple movements and exercises which have a positive influence on pain, hormonal problems, osteoporosis, weight loss, stress, the immune system, mood swings and more. Video guidance of exercises by industry professionals and key areas to support clients with are included.
What our students say
“I really enjoyed the final lecture. Being able to tie in what I’ve learnt in nutrition and relate that to physical activity was helpful. I liked how the lecture slides showed a number of potential workouts that clients can do and how to perform these showing the correct technique to use.”
“I enjoyed the lectures and found it all really informative. I found the examples of how to do an exercise really useful.”
“Hard to say but I liked the mixture in each lecture with diet, physiology, specific workouts and stretches, making it client-centered, case examples, dealing with specific physiologic barriers to exercise, program designs…. all good stuff!”
“I liked learning about the many benefits of exercise, how to plan an exercise program for different type of individuals. We should plan according to their goals, how to adapt activity into their lives, taking into consideration their lifestyle, any pains, injury, stresses. I liked the different tests to carry out to find out clients fitness level. How to plan for measurable outcome goals. It feels really great to know how to plan for client’s activity.”
“All of them but particularly how nutrition and exercise fit together and how important it is to consider both. You can’t really have one without the other. Also how different types of exercises can impact our health and which forms of exercise are beneficial for certain conditions/health concerns and the lecture on how to work with a client and goal setting.”
Coaching to Achieve Goals
This module is at the core of the CNM Health Coach training. All the knowledge in the world is of little help if clients are not making progress or actually following plans. We teach you to identify the real causes of problems such as stress, and provide you with efficient tools to improve health-compromising situations. A CNM-trained Health Coach knows how to establish goals and how to coach a client to achieve self-set goals. Students initially practise with each other and improve their own environment and health as a result. Experienced tutors guide students in their case assessments and in real-life video coaching cases to gradually build confidence. This course is based on evidence-based clinical practice and it is fun!
