Isaac Ho Notable Quotes 

“When we think about health coaches it’s like– one of the things we’re doing is we’re getting ourselves healthy– like every coach I know has pretty much been through trauma. Been through trauma, had something happen, had to heal from it and they go ‘Oh it’s not normal to be in that state. It’s not normal to be messed up like that.’”
Isaac Ho

“I started diving down that rabbit hole personally and just signed up to IIN, which is where I went to health coaching school, and I’m like I want to share this with people, you know? This is something people need to know.”
Omar Cumberbatch
