Find a GAPS Coach

Certified GAPS Coaches (CGC) conduct pantry sweeps, supervise kitchen and equipment preparation steps and food sourcing exercises, teach GAPS cooking techniques including, but not limited to batch cooking and fermentation, and they “green” the home and workplace in a practical, hands-on fashion with their clients either in-person or online. They also specialize in GAPS Fussy Eating/MTM protocols to address clients with fussy eating issues, which is best done in the home environment, and therefore, most ideal for GAPS Coaches. Coaches have a limited “coaching” scope of practice where they work with clients and groups in non-clinical settings (the home, the grocery store, a commercial kitchen, etc.).

CGCs do not recommend supplements, but they are trained to take each client through a comprehensive consultation structure to personalize the GAPS experience for each client. CGCs place a strong emphasis on lifestyle change. If supplementation is needed, CGCs can work with a qualified GAPS Practitioner should a client need supplemental support in addition to the GAPS Nutritional Protocol. Often times you will find Certified GAPS Coaches and Certified GAPS Practitioners teaming up to provide clients with the most well-rounded GAPS experience. They each play a valuable role to help people successfully implement the GAPS Nutritional Protocol.

The very first group of Certified GAPS Coach graduates will be certified on January 27th, 2020. New listings will be coming soon.
