Meet The Team That’s Making This Possible.

Who We Serve

We only work with help health and fitness professionals who:

    • Are committed to being a better "business owner", not just a practitioner/coach.
    • Have an existing ONLINE coaching business or are committed to starting/growing one.
    • Are AMAZING at helping their clients
    • Are hungry for serious growth
    • Are willing to roll up their sleeves and do the work to achieve the success they desire

Specifically, we help naturopaths, functional medicine doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, health and fitness coaches, dietitians, and nutritionists who:

    • Feel burnt out from 1-on-1 client care, OR...
    • Are tired of the headaches (and overhead) of running a brick and mortar business, AND...
    • Who want to move or grow their business online but have no reliable way of attracting new clients or know how to deliver transformational results to them remotely

We help them build a transformational coaching business founded on proven systems that create more income, more impact, and a lot more freedom.

Our most successful clients are those that embody the 10 Core Tenets of a Healthpreneur.

What We Believe

The “Be Great. Do Great.” Manifesto

  • We believe that each and every health practitioner has incredible greatness within them that can transform the lives of countless people.

  • We believe that your business can be the ultimate catalyst for change by empowering people to take better control of their health journey.

  • We believe that community heals and that building a business that emphasizes connection and community, instead of factory-line care, is a key element to building a profitable and sustainable business.

  • We believe in proving something works before teaching it to others.

  • We believe in progress, not perfection. That shame, guilt, and comparing your beginning to someone else’s middle have no place in our journey. Doing your best and continually improving is all that matters.

  • We believe that failing quickly and learning from our mistakes is the fast-track to growing ourselves and our business.

  • We believe that success in business is the result of first delivering massive value to others. And that profits are the fuel that allow us to impact more people, while affording us the life of our dreams.

  • We believe that teaching and selling are one in the same. That once we enrich others’ lives and help solve their problems, they are more likely to know, like, and trust us. This naturally excites them to work with us.

  • We believe that business is an extension of ourselves and that it evolves as we do. That being an entrepreneur is the ultimate spiritual journey and that the more we grow, the more we can serve others.

  • We value freedom and understand that working ourselves into the ground is not only futile but incongruent with the values we impart onto others.

  • We believe in working smarter, not harder. That more can be accomplished in less time by focusing on the big rocks instead of chasing tiny pebbles.

  • Expressing and sharing our genius is a calling that can never be dimmed by financial success, location, or age. We’re on this planet to share our gift with others and we are happiest when we do.

  • We’re here to make a real world difference and leave this planet and its people better than when we found them.

  • We are committed to creating a world where everyone has access to the right knowledge and resources to improve their health. A world where obesity and metabolic disease is rare — as obsolete as slavery.

  • Where the healthcare system is no longer a sick care system and where each individual trusts their own knowledge and experience more than dogmatic prescriptions.

And a world where health professionals are no longer martyrs in service of others but proudly earning what they deserve for the magic they bring to others.

What We Value


Getting things done quickly is more important than doing them perfectly. By moving quickly, we expedite our learning and fast track our success.


We are dedicated to doing great work and going above and beyond because the business' success (and that of our clients) is our success.


We are voracious learners and we love a good challenge because it brings out our innate desire to grow and become our best.

How It All Started

Hey, I’m Yuri Elkaim.

I'm the founder and CEO of Healthpreneur®.

I’m also a husband, father of 4 boys, a New York Times bestselling nutrition author, former professional soccer player, and a trusted health expert. I’m a proud Canadian with a passion for travel and experiencing life to the fullest.

After a brief 3-year hiatus to play professional soccer in Europe, I returned home to Toronto where I started working with clients to help them with their health.

Like so many others in our space, I was overworked and underpaid. I worked 12–14 hour days, seeing one client/patient after another and I struggled to make ends meet.

I was trading time for money and had essentially built myself a job, not a real business. I knew that wasn’t the life I wanted to continue living.

So, in 2006, I started coaching clients online and eventually (after many years of struggle) built a very large and successful coaching business doing so.

Over the past 15 years, I’ve built 2 multiple 7-figure health businesses that have helped more than 500,000 men and women reach their goals.

Even though I’ve become one of the most sought-after business strategists and success mentors for health professionals looking to grow their practice, things certainly weren’t always this way.

I got into health after losing all of my hair to an autoimmune condition at just 17 years old. Wanting to heal myself, I sought every practitioner I could find. I was amazed by their knowledge they possessed and the transformation they helped me and thousands of others create.

Yet, I found it odd that many of them were “cast aside” by the allopathic medical community. A seed was planted inside of me that somehow I would help these practitioners shine their light but I would have to wait 15 years before that happened.

First, I had to walk my own journey. So I pursued advanced studies (and got my degree) in Kinesiology and eventually Holistic Nutrition.

Years later, many health professionals started coming to me for help with their businesses. In each case, I noticed the same pattern … super smart health practitioners who didn’t really know how to market or build their business.

Thankfully, I had an arsenal of battle-tested systems and strategies that had helped me and many others in business.

In 2015, I started Healthpreneur® to provide practitioners with world-class coaching and these proven marketing and business strategies to help them fill and scale their businesses.

Since then, we’ve helped over 900 health professionals build “real” businesses that create more income and greater impact, while allowing them to enjoy life again.

But there’s no way I could have done any of this by myself. I’m grateful for the incredible team we’ve built over the years. Let me introduce you to them here …
