Yuri Elkaim is the founder and CEO of HealthPreneur, a leading coaching company that empowers health and fitness professionals to build thriving online businesses. He is also a former athlete, a known and trusted health expert, and a New York Times bestselling nutrition author. His company’s purpose is not only to help people but also to guide healthcare providers to achieve their dreams in the service of others.

From being a professional soccer player, he shifted his athletic mindset into the entrepreneurial world. He has a strong work ethic and a relentless drive to succeed. He is also a wealth of knowledge and a huge inspiration to aspiring coaches, entrepreneurs, and fitness enthusiasts.

In his late teens, he lost all of the hair on his body due to an autoimmune disease.

His passion for health and wellness grew into a full-blown business that he now runs with his team of coaches.
