How the program works.

The first step: Tell us about yourself

The Precision Nutrition Level 2 Certification Master Class begins with a history of where you are and where you want to go. Tell us about your business, coaching style, schedule, and what you're looking to accomplish.

We pair you with a PN Master Coach.

Your coach will be with you every step of the way throughout the year-long Master Class. Whether they’re reviewing your progress and giving feedback, answering your questions, or making recommendations on how you can improve, your coach has one job and one job only: to help you become the best coach you can possibly be.

What a typical day looks like.

Daily practice.

The Level 2 Certification Master Class is designed to help you develop hands-on, real-world coaching skills. That’s why we give you a daily practice—a small, strategic step or action to do every day that will help you become a more effective coach. Each small step builds one on top of another over the course of 12 months and eventually leads to a complete transformation of your coaching practice.

Daily lesson.

Along with your daily practice, you’ll get a daily lesson. Each lesson explores, simplifies, and drives home deep-level coaching strategies you can use immediately with your clients or patients. From motivational interviewing and working with difficult clients to incorporating habit-based programming and building a successful business.

Work through real coaching challenges. Apply what you’ve learned.

Every two weeks, we’ll give you a new “case study”. This is where you’ll apply the tools, concepts, and lessons from the previous weeks. Work through challenging coaching situations and get feedback from your coach on how you did.

Join other health and fitness industry leaders. Build your network.

As a student you’ll get instant access to a private online group of like-minded professionals. Ask questions, network, learn, compare notes, and get support from your peers. (Note: Precision Nutrition routinely hires new coaches from this pool of elite students.)

Become an elite coach. Earn your Pn2 credentials.

At the end of the year-long Master Class, you’ll have something most health and fitness professionals lack: an unparalleled coaching education and practical hands-on experience. Plus, you’ll have developed your own proven system for getting better results with anyone, anytime, anywhere. The icing on the cake? You’ll automatically receive your Level 2 certificate in the mail once you graduate.

What you’ll learn

In the Precision Nutrition Level 2 Certification
Master Class, you'll learn how to:

Discover what kind of
coach you really are.

Coaching is what you make it. You have your own unique ideas, experience, personality, and practice. We'll teach you what you need to know about your coaching needs and style, and how you can be the best coach you can be.

Understand, assimilate, and
deliver complex information.

We'll teach you how to evaluate research and industry knowledge. We'll show you how to judge the validity of nutritional claims, trends, and fads. That way when people come to you and ask, "What do I do?" you'll have an answer—now and in the future.

Work and connect with
diverse populations.

Whether you work with athletes, "weekend warriors", older, younger, obese, or people with disordered eating, we'll prepare you to deliver amazing results to each and every one. You'll learn ways to communicate and relate to people with all kinds of experiences, interests, and needs. No matter who or what comes in your door, you'll be ready.

Keep people motivated
and following the program.

Motivation is about a lot more than a few pep talks or posters of people climbing mountains. We'll teach you to understand how people think, feel, and behave. Above all, we'll show you how to keep them on track, inspired, and feeling good. Even when the going gets tough.

Assess and evaluate

You could collect all kinds of information about people. Not all of it is useful, or tells you what you need to know. We'll teach you what matters, how to recognize it, and how to measure it. We'll teach you to use outcome-based decision making, a powerful tool in your coaching toolbox.

Simplify complex information
into actionable steps.

The human body is complicated. People rely on you to make it simple for them. We'll teach you how to take high-level, complex information and make it clear, accessible, and immediately understandable. We'll show you how to "tell stories" or use metaphors and analogies. You'll learn how to drill down into a big pile of data and efficiently extract the most important findings.


Are you connecting with people... or just talking at them? Are you saying what people want and need to hear, in a way that they truly comprehend? Can they understand and follow your instructions? We'll teach you how to communicate effectively, both verbally and nonverbally, so that you're always understood, respected, and able to build strong relationships.

Deal with coaching
problems and obstacles.

No coaching journey is perfect. Sometimes, you'll run into truly difficult coaching situations. You'll make your mistakes now—with us guiding, mentoring, and offering feedback at key moments—so you'll make fewer mistakes later. We'll teach you how to sit back, relax, and take a fresh perspective. We'll show you how to confidently and expertly tackle every single challenge.

Build a professional
identity and practice.

Coaching can be a passion and a calling. It's also a way to make a great living doing rewarding work. We'll teach you how to develop your unique professional identity and network. We'll show you how to figure out who you want to be as a coach, using your existing and diverse experience and skills, and how to build a career from that.

Get support
when you need it.

Coaching is a team effort. You'll need support in both building your coaching practice as well as for referring clients and patients. You'll learn how to build an effective and sustainable coaching practice by developing a coaching support network. You'll also learn how to collaborate with other professionals to present a united front and to "cross-fertilize" your own knowledge by working across disciplinary boundaries.

What does the Level 2 Master Class cover, specifically?

This is a comprehensive program and we cover a lot during the course of our year together.

PN Level 2 Graduates

Our recent graduates include world-class health
and fitness professionals. Here's what a few of them
have to say about the PN Level 2 Certification:

Level 2 gave me more confidence. The fact that it was personal, that my coach really took the time to mentor me, made a world of difference. Now as an instructor, I'm constantly raising the bar.

Adam Feit, MS, CSCS

As a coach, you want to give everything to your clients—all the tools that they need. But too much all at once doesn’t yield any change. The Level 2 Certification helps you practice a core PN principal: one thing at a time. The program changed me, and who I am as a coach. And because of that I am able to better facilitate change in other people.

Alex Picot-Annand, Registered Holistic Nutritionist

If you want to help people in the biggest, most meaningful way possible, help them change their lives. The Level 2 Certification gives you everything you need to accomplish that. It's amazing. In fact, I loved the program so much that, after graduation, I applied to work at Precision Nutrition so I could coach it.

Will Boggs, MD, Internal Medicine

Before going through Level 2, I was telling clients what to do, rather than helping them discover what they needed to do. Level 2 showed me how to guide clients into making those decisions themselves and take ownership.

Mary Kate Feit, MEd, CSCS

The Level 2 Certification teaches you how to find the limiting factor and remove it to allow a whole cascade of positive events to happen. If you’re a nutrition coach, a performance coach, a behavioral coach—if you’re a coach—this program gives you all the tools necessary to help anyone with anything.

Adam Lloyd, CSCS

The Level 2 Certification pushes you harder and further, in different directions than you ever thought you could go as a coach. It pushed me to learn some lessons that have definitely had an impact on patient care. Having access to a coach of Krista Scott-Dixon’s caliber is worth its weight in gold.

Spencer Nadolsky, Obesity and Family Medicine Physician

Who it’s for

The Precision Nutrition Level 2 Certification
Master Class is for you if:

You want to master behavior-change nutrition coaching.

This course contains everything we've learned in the past 15 years of building and running Precision Nutrition. From nutrition coaching to behavior-change psychology to motivational interviewing and lots more, we'll give you unprecedented access to our absolute best coaching research, strategies, tools, and technologies.

You want to work with a PN Master Coach.

The best coaches need coaches. We take that to heart at Precision Nutrition. That's why every single one of our in-house staff has gone through this course. We'll pair you with one of our master coaches and they'll stick with you every step of the way as you learn and grow.

You want hands-on, practical, "real-world" coaching strategies.

Theory is fine. Books are great. But the only way to truly gain mastery in something is to do it. With the Precision Nutrition Level 2 Certification Master Class, you'll have something new to learn, try, or experiment with every single day.

You're willing to commit to a full year of becoming a better coach.

The Level 2 Master Class is 12 months long. For those who can make the commitment, it's enough time to completely transform your coaching skills and business.

You already have a few clients, whether formal or informal (e.g. friends, family).

In the Precision Nutrition Level 2 Certification Master Class, we'll often ask you to test what you're learning on real people. So you'll need some real people to practice on.

The Precision Nutrition Level 2 Certification
Master Class is not for you if:

You haven't yet enrolled in the Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification.

You don't need to have graduated the Level 1 Certification, but you do need to be a student. The Level 1 Certification lays the groundwork for what you'll learn in the Level 2 Certification Master Class and we encourage every student to go through it first. You can learn more about the self-guided Precision Nutrition Level 1 Nutrition Certification here.

Dedicating time to becoming a better coach isn't a priority for you right now.

This is a legitimate reason for not signing up. Making this course work requires that you make your coaching skills a priority for the year. Your family, loved ones, and business come first, of course; but this program will have to come second for 12 months. That's not always possible for people, and that's okay. If and when things change, we're here.

You aren't willing to dedicate 4-5 hours per week (or 45 minutes per day) to the course.

The Level 2 Master Class is a comprehensive course, requiring a decent amount of time and attention to participate in.

You don't currently have any clients, whether formal or informal (e.g. friends, family).

Since the Precision Nutrition Level 2 Master Class is a hands-on practice-based course, you'll need real people to help.

The Precision Nutrition Level 2 Certification qualifies for continuing education credits with organizations worldwide, including the following:


We only take a small number of new students and teach them our proven coaching system. Spots are first-come, first-served, so don’t miss out as we’ve historically sold out in hours.

The general public price of the Level 2 Master Class is $349 USD per month for 12 months.

But when you join the free Presale list today, you’ll get the chance to pay only $262.50 USD per month or a one-time payment of $2,625 USD—up to 37% savings off the general price.

To give you a sense for what you get for the price, here’s a quick comparison:

$40,000 – $100,000 USD
$2,625 USD
PN Level 2 Master Class
4 years of undergrad, plus 1 year of daily lessons, practices, and mentorship.
4 years of part-time grad school. No textbook.
Additional costs for textbooks, housing, student fees, etc. No additional hidden costs.
Learning in an academic format that might not work for you. Learning as easy as reading an article, watching a video, or listening to a podcast.
Often has to be done on site. Delivered entirely online—study whenever you want, wherever you are.
Mostly lecture-based—very little direct mentorship. Hands-on collaboration and professional mentorship—we coach you while you learn to coach.
Might not be able to apply most of the material to your coaching practice. All material can be immediately applied to coaching.

Indeed, 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 – $25,000 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 Precision Nutrition Level 2 Certification, we’ll share a proven coaching system that’s guaranteed to get results for anyone you work with.

Indeed, after coaching over 100,000 clients, we know what works. We’ve created a bulletproof system. And we’re making it available to you at a very affordable price.

Our Guarantee

Lots of companies guarantee their products. We guarantee our services, too.

Our students make a commitment to learn from us—and we make a commitment to help them become better coaches. Then our students decide for themselves: Was it worth it? If yes, they earn their Pn2 credentials and head out to change people’s lives. If no, we give them a full refund.

That’s our promise. We’ll coach you for an entire year. If you commit to the 12-month Master Class and, at the end, don’t think it was the best coaching experience of your life, we’ll write you a check for every penny you spent. No questions asked. We’re confident in what we do and we stand by our work.

Frequently Asked Questions

Final note

We believe health and fitness professionals have the most important job in the world.

But there’s a big difference between giving people exercise and nutrition advice and actually knowing how to coach them through a successful body and life transformation.

The professionals who deeply understand how to coach—the pros who have mastered the art and science of getting results—they’re the ones that will continue to have long-lasting, rewarding careers. They will continue to be the innovators of our industry.

Of course, if now isn’t your time, we understand. We hope this helped you understand what the Level 2 program is and what it can do for you.

However, if you know that the time for you is now, we have a strong recommendation for you: just do it. Go for it. Make the commitment to become the kind of coach you want (and need) to be.

Master the art of coaching, get world-class results, and transform your business.
