What our grads say

Jonathan Goodman Founder of PTDC

What really makes a great coach, and what I think works so well in the PN Nutrition Certification—it’s not about telling someone to do something. It’s about knowing what questions to ask, and then leading the person in the right direction.

Marie-Josee Perrier PhD

The PN Nutrition Certification gives you the skills and tools that you need to actually go out and do it. So it’s not just academic information. It gives you everything you need to be a successful coach.

Eric Cressey Director of Player Health for the NY Yankees

The PN Nutrition Certification allows you to immediately affect positive changes in the lives of your clients. One of the things I absolutely love is the focus on the big things first—the behavioral modifications, and the quick fixes that can yield dramatically improved results.

Adam Lloyd CSCS

As I was going through the course I realized it was perfect; it’s exactly what I wanted and needed to learn. The information it taught me vs. the 4th year nutrition course I took as a Kinesiology student… it was like comparing apples to oranges. The nutrition course was good. But the PN Nutrition Certification was that much better.

Zee is changing lives.

A client recently shared that I’ve transformed her entire life and outlook on what it means to be healthy. She has inspired her husband to lose weight too! I’d do this for FREE… but getting paid for this is beyond a dream for me.

Ray started using his new knowledge on day one.

After just the first 3 chapters, I started putting my new knowledge into practice with my clients. As I read further, I developed new coaching skills and was able to separate nutrition myths from the truth.
