I’ve been working with and for a wellness lawyer for over a year who specializes in health coaching and our unique industry! It’s made me appreciate just how important it is to have legal foundations in place to protect yourself and your business!
I know we just want to coach, create content, and help people, but health coaching is a pretty unregulated industry, which means there are more risks than most! And if you plan on building your business online(which I obviously recommend :)…you’re opening yourself up to more and more layers of risk.
Creating a solid legal foundation is essential and allows you to confidently move forward with building your business without stress!
BUT, you also don’t want to do this with generic legal agreements that aren’t specific to health coaches!

That’s why I partnered with this amazing lawyer to co-found Law Is Fun.
Our legal agreements are written specifically for Health Coaches and speak to the nuances of our industry, so you can be confident you’re covered for all risks!
We have 3 health coaching-specific legal packages to choose from, and many individual agreements to fill gaps in your legal coverage.

Here are the 3 main legal pacakges you'll want to look at...
New Health Coaching Package: This includes all the essentials a new health coach needs to protect their business, AND, 4 bonus agreements to help you take on the online world.
Complete Online Health Coaching Package: All the essentials and bonuses that are included in the New Health Coaching Package, with an added Community Membership Agreement. For those looking to create an online community to move beyond 1-on-1 coaching!
Health Coach Online Course Package: Everything that’s included in the Complete Online Health Coaching Package, PLUS, an Online Course Agreement. For those going all out in the online world who plan on creating and selling online courses.
What legal agreements does every health coach need?
All of the agreements below are included in the three health coaching packages mentioned above.
In the world of health coaching, unexpected twists can arise. The Waiver of Liability acts as your legal armor, protecting you from potential claims stemming from client injuries or dissatisfaction. It's your safety net, allowing you to focus on guiding clients toward wellness without worrying about them suing you because of the advice you gave them.
Communication is key in coaching. The Disclaimer document lays out the scope of your services, ensuring clients understand what you can – and can't provide. It sets the stage for a smooth coaching relationship, where both parties are on the same page.
The Service Agreement solidifies your professional commitments. It outlines the specifics of your services, fees, and other critical details, ensuring a mutual understanding and a seamless working relationship.
These are five absolute essentials if you’re just getting started…but most of you are ALSO going to be diving into social media, affiliate marketing, working with employees or contractors, and sharing testimonials. The below agreements are BONUSES and included in all three above packages.
If you're engaged in affiliate marketing, the Affiliate Disclaimer adds an extra layer of transparency and is required by law if you’re going to be making any kind of commission off products you recommend. It discloses any potential financial relationships, cementing your credibility and trustworthiness.
Your online presence matters. The Social Media Disclaimerclarifies your role, preventing misconceptions about your content's purpose. This ensures that if someone follows the “advice” or education you put out on social media, you aren’t going to get in trouble.
Trust is the cornerstone of coaching. The Non-Disclosure Agreementensures confidential discussions remain just that – confidential. It establishes a safe space, but is also used if you work with contractors or employees and want to keep your business workings private!
One of the most powerful ways to build new business and get coaching clients is to share testimonials. It’s a core part of most marketing plans! But if you haven’t had a Media Releasesigned, you won’t legally be able to use or post their testimonial! Make sure to have this signed so you can promote away!
I’m passionate about helping you setup the foundations of your business so you can do what you do best…help others reach optimal health!
Health coaching-specific legal agreements ensure your protection so that you can build your coaching business without stress and risk.

Law is Fun agreements are affordable and written by a 5-star lawyer who has worked with over 1,000 wellness entrepreneurs in our industry. But when you purchase their agreements, you are not getting personalized legal support. If you would prefer to work 1-on-1 with a lawyer for tailored guidance, I highly recommend Cory from Conscious Counsel.
