Health Coaching WordPress Website Designer – How to Get Started

The purpose of this article is to provide helpful information about designing a website for a health coach. In today’s society, physical health is becoming less of a priority, especially as people are living longer. In fact, many people are avoiding doctors and going more natural routes to regain health. This is where a health coach comes in. A health coach is someone who works with clients to improve their physical and mental health. They may teach them how to prepare healthy meals, provide them with tips on achieving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and ensure they are absorbing the right nutrients through proper nutrition. Designing a health coaching website can be a great way to provide essential information to those seeking help. It can also be a stepping stone to establishing your own private practice and becoming a health coach yourself. Let’s take a look at how to get started.

Step One: Determine What You’ll Need

Before you start designing your website, you need to figure out what you’ll need. You’ll need a good web host to launch your site. You’ll also need a domain name. For my own personal website, I recommend Namecheap, as they offer great prices and have a simple to use website builder tool called Squarespace, which I’ll discuss a little bit later. You’ll also need a self-hosted WordPress to design your site with. You can use Bluehost, which is currently offering a special deal of just $2.95 per month (normally $10.95 per month), or you can use any of the other popular web hosting services such as GoDaddy and Hostgator. Finally, you’ll need a personal digital assistant (PDA) or a smartphone to stay connected to the internet and make changes to your website. You can get a free Google PDA called Glass from Google Play Store or from the Apple Store (iOS only).

Step Two: Choose a Theme

After you have your web host and domain name, you can start designing your website. WordPress has a wide variety of free themes available, so the design process should be fairly simple. You’ll want to choose a theme that allows you to showcase all of your work, as well as allow visitors to contact you directly through the site. Once you launch your site, take some time to familiarize yourself with the design features. If you have Photoshop, you can also edit the templates to make them fit your specific needs. You can find a variety of themes on that are suitable for health coaches, such as the Men’s Health and Wellness theme or the Mind Over Matter theme.

Step Three: Set Up Your Blog And Write Content

An important step in the website design process is to set up your blog. A blog is a type of website where you can post content such as articles, photos, and videos. The content can be about anything related to health coaching, fitness, or nutrition. The beauty of a blog is that it’s quite easy to set one up. All you need is a content-rich website, a WordPress account, and a domain name. To get started, visit and log in with your email address and password. Then click on the “Get started” link in the top right-hand corner of the screen. From there, you’ll be taken to a page that will ask you to pick a template for your blog. The page will also ask you to set up a blog header and give your blog a name. After you’ve done that, click on the “Create blog” button. A new section will open on your left-hand side, where you can start writing blog content. Make sure you keep this content relevant to your target audience. Don’t just write for the sake of writing.

Step Four: Promote Your Blog

Once you’ve set up your blog with a few articles, you can start promoting it. You have two options here: You can either put in the time to do some research and find the right blogs to connect with or you can connect with bloggers and journalists who have a large audience and can potentially gain you some PR. Either way, you’ll want to make sure that the content you promote is relevant to your target audience. When someone finds your blog’s content relevant, it will help establish you as an expert in your field. This, in turn, may help you gain more clients.

Step Five: Customize Your Website As Necessary

Once you’ve launched your blog, you can start customizing your website. You have a few options here: You can either use the built-in CSS stylesheet provided by your host or you can find a WordPress CSS theme and edit it to fit your specific needs. You can find a variety of CSS themes on, or you can use a service like StudioPress to quickly create a professional-looking website for your blog in about two minutes. If you decide to go this route, be sure to read their blog post on how to customize your website for greater effectiveness. Once you’ve launched your website, take some time to experiment with different layouts, fonts, colors, and text styles to find what works best for your audience. Be sure to make changes on a trial-and-error basis until you find a combination that feels right.

That’s pretty much everything you need to know about designing a website for a health coach. From setting up your blog to designing your website, taking the time to do it properly will make a world of difference. Don’t rush the process and make a lot of mistakes. Instead, do your research, find the right partners, and give it your all. Good luck out there.
