Our Level 1 Functional Health Course gives you the option to move at your own pace or join a live cohort that meets twice weekly. Upon graduation you will be a Level 1 Certified Functional Health Coach ready to use your knowledge to help people achieve their health goals. In our Level 1 program you will uncover the foundations of a functional root-cause approach while learning our proprietary 4F system that will have you unlocking your best client results yet. As a bonus, we’ve put together lessons on the top ‘must-know’ business & marketing skills to ensure that your coaching business experiences growth in our program right from the beginning.

The 4F System

Our 4F System methodically works through the body systems to give each of them nourishment and repair full body functioning while also supporting body composition goals.


The Flush Phase is focused on full body detoxification to fire up the metabolism. The Flush removes all common allergens and inflammatory foods, while opening up detox pathways with high levels of targeted micronutrients.


The Feed Phase gives you time to implement gut microbiome work and improve insulin sensitivity while getting the client’s calories as high as possible with a flexible food exchange system.


The Function Phase works to optimize hormones and change programming to focus more on body composition. With a healthy microbiome, nourished adrenals, improved thyroid function, balanced hormones, and a metabolism that’s burning up - getting physique changes becomes a lot easier!


The Fast Phase encompasses the idea of removal of a specific stimulus for a period of time. There are many things we can fast from: sugar, processed foods, watching tv before bed, social media, supplements, certain types of workouts, or even fasting a certain amount of hours in a day! Learn how to cycle periods of “push” versus “pull” to get sustainable results.
