Coach Chip


Coach Chip Allman-Burgard  is a Certified Holistic Health Coach who received his certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) in 2012 and has coached over 80 clients back to health since starting Naturally Fortified in 2012. Together with Dr. Keith Burgard, his husband and Consulting Physician, they help busy clients find time to focus on their health goals. A true foodie at heart, his passion for healthy food and cooking drives his clients to success by making small changes which lead to permanent, healthy lifestyle changes.

Through setting goals related to health and his clients’ Primary Foods (career, exercise, relationships and spirituality), Chip coaches his clients to drop their cravings and remove processed foods from their lives and focus on healthy cooking and proper exercise for their body type. The “death of diets” approach created by Coach Chip and Dr. Keith helps their clients to change their focus from fad diets and calorie counting to a more Bioindividuality approach while focusing on nutrient dense foods.  Coach Chip’s famous “pantry raids,” healthy grocery tours and in-home cooking sessions with his clients give a very hands on approach to goal reaching.

He received an undergraduate degree from Miami University in 1995, but his true passion for health came from IIN where he studied over 100 dietary theories. His teachers and mentors include Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. David Katz, Dr. Walter Willet, Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Frank Lipman, Marion Nestle and many more.
