With age, you come to learn that there’s not much you can accomplish without good physical and mental health. As an increasing number of women looking to prioritize their health and set goals, there are a number of business ideas that serve to help them master this area of their lives. If you have a passion for helping others to achieve the best versions of themselves, perhaps a business in the health and wellness industry would appeal to you. Here are some popular examples: 

  • Health Coach – Making effective lifestyle changes like dieting and exercising are easier said than done. People set goals but have a hard time reaching them. As a health coach, you would work with clients to set, stick to, and reach their health and fitness goals. Becoming a certified health coach will require some continuing education courses, but your life experience will help you to connect directly with your clients for improved success. 
  • Personal Trainer – Everyone knows that exercising can help you to reach your ideal body weight and type. Yet, most are unaware of how to create a customized workout plan that will help them reach those goals. As a personal trainer, your task would be to help clients create SMART fitness goals. You would work with them on a regular basis providing tips on types of exercise, form, and reps while also providing them with motivation to push themselves outside of their comfort zone.
  • Health and Wellness Blogger – If you want to rely on life experience alone, a better business opportunity might be to become a health and wellness blogger. You can provide insight to women on everything from self-care and mental health to nutrition and exercise. 
  • Massage Therapist – The list of benefits to massage therapy are plentiful. Individuals who receive a massage have reported health and wellness perks that include reduced stress, improved mood, enhanced flexibility and range of motion, better blood circulation, reduced pain, and more. With a few educational courses, a certification, and a strong marketing strategy, you can become a mobile massage therapist providing services in client homes and businesses. 
  • Herbalist – Many people are looking to holistic approaches and alternative medicine as a means of improving physical and mental ailments. You will need quite a bit of schooling to become certified, but once you’ve completed your courses, you can help women to improve their health with the support of medicinal herbs and food. You can take on clients independently, develop your own supplements to sell, or write a book or how-to guide. Nowadays, there are a lot of supplements out there developed by private label companies to fit various different health needs, so make sure to do your research on what is missing from the market!

  • Wellness Retreat Organizer – Wellness retreats are becoming a very popular vacation option for women who are looking to take a break and learn essential tools to help further their health and fitness goals. As a wellness retreat organizer, you would be responsible for planning wellness-related gatherings for individuals and groups. You’d work with hotels and resorts, exercise instructors, and other health and wellness experts to coordinate a positive healing experience. 
  • Personal Chef – Do you have a passion for cooking? If so, you could put your skills to use. One of the biggest problems that people have with sticking to nutritional goals is knowing what to eat and how to prepare delicious but healthy meals. As a personal chef, you would offer to prepare meals for clients on a predetermined schedule (i.e. daily,  three times a week, or a few times a month).  
  • Meal Planning Services – Meal planning is another way to help people achieve their diet and weight loss goals. Women, who are often overwhelmed with work, kids, and other responsibilities have limited time to decide what’s for dinner. You could come up with your own healthy meal plan ideas (and recipes) and sell them to make eating healthier a lot easier to manage. 
  •  Dance Instructor –  Dance is a fun way to work out and get in shape. It also helps to boost confidence and self-esteem in women. If you’re skilled in an area of dance, you can teach interested women how to shake their groove thang. You could provide lessons in person or online depending on your budget and personal preference. 

There are millions of women looking for support in their efforts to be their physical and mental best. There are also lots of opportunities to support them in their journies. Now is the perfect time to embark on something new that not only provides you with additional income but helps women across the country to look and feel their best.
