Created by John Berardi, PhD, CSCS and Krista Scott-Dixon, PhD, the PN Level 2 Master Health Coaching Certification is the synthesis of everything we've learned during the last 15 years of coaching and research in the nutrition field.
Meet your coaches and program leaders below.
Toni holds a BA in International Business and multiple certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and PN. A former fitness business owner, PN client, and seasoned coach, Toni brings 10+ years of relevant experience to help Level 2 students reach the top of their coaching game.
Jason holds certifications from the National Strength and Conditioning Association along with a BS in Physical Education and a Master's in Coaching. He has 7 years of teaching experience, on top of his 8 years as a coach at PN.
Dominic has an impressive host of certifications and credentials to his name, including over a decade in nationally competitive men’s rugby, and a diverse skillset in fitness and nutrition. A product of the process of having lost over 100 lbs, Dominic serves as a prime example of a coach who made a career change to health and fitness from a non-related field.
Dr. Berardi (a.k.a. “JB”) is a co-founder of PN, which has become the world’s largest online nutrition coaching and certification company. He’s an advisor to Apple, Equinox, Nike, and Titleist, and was recently selected as one of the 20 smartest coaches in the world by Livetrong.com.

The first step: Tell us about yourself
The PN Level 2 Master Health Coaching Certification begins with a history of where you are and where you want to go. Tell us about your business, coaching style, and what you’re looking to accomplish.
What a typical week looks like:
Everything is delivered online, so you can access it from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.
To give you an idea of the commitment, you’ll spend roughly 6-8 hours per week participating in the live online learning sessions (via Zoom), practicing your new skills through coursework and case studies, and connecting with fellow health and fitness professionals.
These coaches have seen it all. They’ve lived and breathed health and nutrition coaching for years, working with thousands of clients, and now they’re ready to share their hard-earned wisdom with you—every step of the way. Whether they’re reviewing your progress and giving feedback, answering your questions, or making recommendations on how you can improve, these coaches have one goal: to help you become the best coach you can possibly be.
The PN Level 2 Master Health Coaching Certification is designed to help you develop hands-on, real-world coaching skills. Each week you’ll receive a weekly coaching focus or habit, that you can take action on or practice with your clients. Each small, strategic step builds on top of another over the course and eventually leads to a complete transformation of your coaching practice.
Each week, you’ll join your fellow students to learn, grow, and practice together during a live workshop led by one of PN’s in-house expert coaches. Through both large and small group discussions, you’ll have the opportunity to practice what you’re learning with peers and get feedback from a coach who has in-the-trenches experience working with every kind of client.
Each video lecture 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 practice-based programs—you’ll get behind-the-scenes access to how the world’s top coaches operate, so you can model their proven methods.
Throughout the program, you will be presented with realistic “case studies.” This is where you’ll apply the tools, concepts, and lessons from your weekly lectures. Work through challenging coaching situations and get feedback from your coach on how you did. By practicing your coaching skills in a supportive environment and receiving expert feedback every step of the way, you’ll have confidence to put it all into action with real clients when the time comes.
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: PN routinely hires new coaches from this pool of elite students.)
We offer two pathways in the PN Level 2 Certification:
1. The “Master Coach” pathway—for students who are not interested in becoming a Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach.
2. The “Master Health Coach” pathway—for students who would like to pursue the esteemed NBC-HWC credential. (See the FAQ section for more details about the two pathways.)
Regardless of which pathway you choose, at the end of the certification program, you’ll have something most health and wellness professionals lack: an unparalleled coaching education and practical hands-on experience.
Plus, you’ll have developed your own proven systems for getting better results with anyone, anytime, anywhere. And the confidence that comes from that can completely transform your career.

In the PN Level 2 Master Health Coaching Certification, 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 “health” 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.
Deliver holistic health coaching to diverse populations.
No matter who comes to you for help—whether that’s athletes, “weekend warriors”, older, younger, obese, or people with disorded eating, you’ll be prepared 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 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. You’ll develop a deep understanding of how people think, feel, and behave. Above all, you’ll add proven methods and strategies to your coaches ‘toolbox’ to keep your clients on track, inspired, and feeling good—even when the going gets tough.
Assess and evaluate progress.
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. And then, using outcome-based decision making, you’ll learn how to turn this into an action plan that keeps people moving forward with confidence.
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 so your clients “get it” on a whole new level. 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 practice. 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.
