Frequently Asked Questions
The answer is simple: We want to help as many people in the world as possible. And, to do that, we need you. To understand what I mean, here’s some basic math.
Over the last 15 years, nearly 100,000 clients have gone through Precision Nutrition’s ProCoach. But imagine that, over the next 10 years, 50,000 fitness and health professionals start using ProCoach. If each one coaches just 25 people, that’s over 1,000,000 lives changed and 25 times the impact.
So, by working together, two things happen: You get to deliver something amazing to your clients that’ll help change their lives and help improve your business. We get to use a program that we’ve already built to reach millions of people and make a major difference in the world.
Absolutely. Precision Nutrition’s ProCoach was originally built for our in-house coaching team to work with our own clients, exclusively online. So you can use this software to coach your in-person clients or your online clients.
Many health and fitness pros tell us they sell 12-16 week programs. Which means, of course, at the end of those programs, they have to get brand new clients. That’s okay, if your client only needs 12-16 weeks of coaching. But, most times, they need more.
So what if you could help them achieve even better results, and in turn, keep them for longer? Enter ProCoach. It offers up to 12 full months of curriculum.
No more scrambling for new clients every few months. With ProCoach you bring in more revenue per client. You have a more steady and predictable business. You grow your reputation as someone who can deliver significant results. And you generate more referrals through word of mouth. It’s a big win all around: For your clients, for you as their coach, and for your business.
Right now we’re only opening this program to PN Level 1 and 2 students and graduates. Therefore, if you’ve signed up for either the PN Level 1 or Level 2 Certification programs, you can register to use Precision Nutrition’s ProCoach.
Our successful clients have ranged from 18 – 75-year-old men and women who want to eat, move, and live better. Not only does the curriculum take into account the needs of beginner clients, using a habit-based approach rooted in change psychology, it also caters to clients with 5+ years of eating well and exercising who struggle with consistency.
Of course, if your clients are elite athletes, already in awesome shape and looking for that 1% sports nutrition edge, this curriculum isn’t for them. However, it will help experienced exercisers get their eating and lifestyle habits on track. It’ll also help them stay consistent if that’s one of their struggles.
Ultimately, ProCoach is a great fit for your clients who want to see better results than they’re getting, and are open to changing their nutrition and lifestyle habits. (This group tends to make up about 70-80% of the typical health and fitness clientele.) The difference you can make for these clients, coupled with the time savings and potential profit, make ProCoach a great choice for many health and fitness pros.
If you’re already rockin’ a reliable, scalable, and automated nutrition coaching system, rock on. You probably don’t need this. However, many professionals who offer nutrition coaching in fitness, rehab, or medicine, struggle. We surveyed over 10,000 of them and their main challenges are:
- Coaching more clients, more effectively, without working more hours.
- Standing out as the go-to health and fitness expert in their area.
- Making a significant impact in people’s health and lives.
- Automating coaching so that they don’t waste lots of time on admin.
- Outsourcing repetitive, time-wasting tasks, so they can focus on what they do best as a coach.
- Identifying their clients’ limiting factors and choosing the next thing for them to work on.
- Making sure clients are being consistent and following through on recommendations.
- Growing their coaching practice, attracting new clients and generating referrals – while retaining current clients.
Precision Nutrition’s ProCoach addresses each of these, making nutrition and lifestyle support easier for you and more effective for the client.
That’s okay. ProCoach is designed to provide daily nutrition and lifestyle coaching regardless of where you work in the fitness and health industry. Other professionals using the software will include nutritionists, rehab specialists, therapists, physicians, and — of course — personal trainers.
If you work with clients or patients (in-person or online) who want to eat better and improve their lifestyle habits — and you want a seamless way of adding this support to your practice — Precision Nutrition’s ProCoach is for you.
After working with thousands of ProCoaches to deliver comprehensive nutrition and lifestyle coaching, many began asking us to unlock our vault of expert-designed exercise programs so they can deliver a more holistic, single-platform experience.
As Precision Nutrition’s own coaching programs have offered integrated exercise, nutrition, lifestyle advice for years, we decided to make available our 28 client-proven exercise tracks for you to use with selected clients.
For a small additional monthly fee, you now have the option to add ProCoach Workouts to your monthly ProCoach subscription. You can do this from your ProCoach dashboard, once enrolled in the program.
None, really. As you probably know, we’re nutritional agnostics. And, while meal-plan approaches require one to choose between Vegan, Paleo, Mediterranean, or other “labeled” diets, habit-based approaches don’t force this choice.
This means our progressive systems of habits, lessons, and assignments can work equally well for vegetarians (who eat no meat) or meatatarians (who eat mostly meat).
No. Over the years we’ve learned something the hard way: Meal plans and diets aren’t useful or sustainable for the vast majority of clients. So we left them behind a long time ago. Nowadays we use a habit-based coaching curriculum instead.
We do, however, offer Quick Start Guides for your clients. Once your client enrolls in ProCoach and completes their intake questionnaire, the system will automatically generate a custom eating guide to help them with portion control, workout nutrition, grocery shopping, and meal prep. This a great way to help them gain momentum and results early on. Plus, it makes you look like a rockstar coach.
No, because our experience has shown that coaches need effective time-saving tools. Customization takes too much time for most clients, while adding no additional results.
For now, no. But you’ll have your own contact info listed as “the coach” and everything will run through you.
You’d simply sign each up for their own basic account based on the number of clients per trainer. This keeps things really simple and avoids the unnecessary hassles of trying to create, manage, and price enterprise-type solutions.
At this time, ProCoach is delivered in English only; so as long as your clients understand English, they can use the program.
At Precision Nutrition, our personal coaching clients have paid from $99 to $179 USD per month to work with us. So you can go with those numbers if it makes sense for your market. (Of course, you could charge more, or less, based on your clientele, your offerings, and how you want to roll this out).
Another option is to not charge anything. You could offer this as a value-add for your best, or highest-paying, clients. You’d just build it into your offering and include it without cost. There are so many possible options and we don’t place any limits on what you charge.
No problem, you can cancel at any time. If you cancel within the first 90 days, we’ll give you all your money back. After that, you can cancel any time. No questions asked, let us know and we’ll stop billing you right away.
