They’re struggling to make sense of it all—let alone improve their physical and mental health while juggling daily demands.

These people don’t need another diet book or meal plan. They’ve tried those, and they’re still struggling.

Regardless of what’s happening all around you right now, you can still look back on the end of 2022 and say, “That was my turning point.”

You can still become a coach who transforms lives—while making a full-time or part-time living doing what you love.

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.

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.

University
$899 USD
PN Nutrition Certification
4 years of undergrad, plus
4 years of part-time grad school.
Study at your own pace—program is entirely self-paced, so there’s no deadline. You can take as much time or as little time as you like.
Additional costs for textbooks, housing, student fees, etc. All course materials included, free shipping. Get all your certification materials shipped directly to your door, at no cost, no matter where you live.
Learning in an academic format that might not work for you. Learning as easy as reading your textbook and watching a video, with short end-of-chapter quizzes to test your knowledge.
Often has to be done on site. Delivered entirely online—study whenever you want, wherever you are. Take the online exams when you’re ready.
Might not be able to apply most of the material to your coaching practice. All material can be immediately applied to your coaching.

Continuing the University comparison, if you decided to go back to school for a nutrition degree or to become a registered dietitian, you’d likely spend anywhere from $10,000 – $20,000 USD per year. If you did a four-year degree, you’d be looking at spending upward of $40,000 – $100,000 USD.

The only problem? Most university courses lack real-world coaching opportunities. And most professors aren’t experienced coaches. That’s why many students find that they’re stuck once they graduate.

It’s also why, in the PN Nutrition Certification, we’ll share a proven coaching system that’s guaranteed to get results for anyone who comes to you for help.

After coaching over 100,000 clients, we know what works. We’ve created a bulletproof system. And now it’s ready for you to use with your clients.

Frequently Asked Questions

Become Certified, Transform Lives

Nutrition is key when it comes to helping anyone achieve their health and fitness goals—whether they want to lose fat, gain strength, optimize performance, relieve stress, sleep better, or improve their mental health.

That’s what we do with our own clients every day (no other nutrition certification company can say this). And we’ll teach you the very same science-based coaching method we’ve used with major health organizations, professional sports teams, and over 100,000 clients worldwide.

So if you want to help people transform their health, fitness, and performance—and improve their whole lives—join us. We’ll show you everything we know.

Gain a deeper understanding of nutrition, the authority to coach it, & the ability to turn what you know into results.
