Professional Education

Through our Precision Nutrition Level 1 and Level 2 Certifications, we've helped nearly 100,000 fitness and health professionals become elite coaches.

Using the best practices of adult online education, we share everything we know about nutrition and health, behavior change, and real-world coaching with our professional students.

We also teach them how to build successful, meaningful businesses.

Nutrition and Health Coaching

Over the last 15 years, through our Men's and Women's coaching programs, our in-house coaches have helped over 100,000 men and women get into the best shape of their lives.

We approach coaching by listening to our clients' needs and what they want to accomplish, learning how they live, discovering what's really important to them, and working together to create the right nutrition and exercise approach based on their goals and lifestyle.

Then we coach them through the process, helping with the inevitable roadblocks along the way to success.

Nutrition Software

Through our ProCoach software we help health and fitness professionals deliver research-proven nutrition and lifestyle coaching to anyone who needs it... from paying clients, to family members, to co-workouts, to loved ones.

Whether they want to coach in-person, online, or a combination of the two, whatever fits their ideal lifestyle, it's possible with ProCoach.

With the ProCoach curriculum, coaching tools, and software, our ProCoaches are able to get better results with dozens, even hundreds, of people while working less, growing their businesses, and living life on their own terms.

"The principles behind Precision Nutrition aren't new — it's the same type of advice Dr. John Berardi has been sharing with Olympians and professional athletes. What's different is that now anyone can work with Berardi and his team of coaches for less than it costs to join a CrossFit gym."

The Precision Nutrition purpose.

It all began in 2003, when co-founders Dr. John Berardi and Phil Caravaggio joined together on two inspiring missions.

To help clients all over the world discover the joys of living a fit, healthy life. And to help thousands of professionals deliver this purpose to their own clients.

John, trained in fitness and nutrition, and Phil, trained in engineering and technology, share a common belief: Good health and a thriving body are the birthright of every single person on this planet.

Tired of diet books and cookie-cutter training plans, John and Phil created a research-driven, web-based coaching community called Precision Nutrition.

Today, Precision Nutrition is the largest -- and most respected -- private nutrition coaching and education company in the world.

We are the go-to source in the fitness industry. Renowned fitness experts, health professionals, and superstar athletes all come to us for advice.

Over the last 12 years, we've watched fad diets and fitness crazes come and go. But when the fads have failed, and the crazes have died out, and people just want something that works... we're the ones they come to.

Meet the team.

Everyone at Precision Nutrition is at the top of their field—whether it’s coaching, nutrition science, behavior change, client care, or technology.

Looking for world-class expertise in exercise physiology, nutritional biochemistry, and sports psychology? You’ll find it here.

After coaching 100,000+ clients, earning PhDs and advanced degrees, and publishing in scientific journals—as well as being featured in major publications like FastCompany, the New York Times, and Men’s Health—we have the most trusted sources on the science of nutrition and the art of coaching you’ll find (anywhere).

Meet our experts here.

We're a diverse bunch, just like our clients. Kind of like the United Nations of different eating strategies, exercise goals, and healthy living principles. And, like the UN, we’re all over the map.

From Toronto to Italy, Southern California to Belize, we’ve been working remotely for over 20 years. Because we're not limited by geography, we work with the best of the best.

Through it all, we're committed to a common belief: that everyone deserves health and fitness in their lives.

Meet the entire team here.

You are welcome here. Yes, you.

Maybe you're looking at Precision Nutrition and wondering if all this health and fitness stuff is for you.

Maybe you suspect you don't belong, or shouldn't bother. Because it feels like your diet's broken. Or the gym feels like a foreign country. Or you think you'd have to change everything in your life to ‘get fit.'

Or maybe you know exactly what to do. Perhaps you've been working out for years, and yet something isn't working anymore.

Heck, maybe you're even a fitness or health pro but you have this feeling that somehow something could be done better. That you could be more successful, reach more people or get better results with your clients.

All of those feelings, concerns, and doubts are why we created Precision Nutrition. So if any of the above applies to you, don't worry: You're exactly who Precision Nutrition is made for.

Our message to you right now.

“My goodness that happened fast.”

If that’s crossed your mind lately, we can relate.

COVID-19 has seemingly changed the world overnight.

And like everyone else, we’re concerned about the future… ongoing health risks, school closings, the economy...

Despite all this, our mindset is helping us feel calmer and more prepared. And our experience suggests, if you’re struggling, it might help you as well.

It starts with one very powerful core belief: Focus on actions, not outcomes.

The truth is, no one can control what happens next. And that gives many of us a feeling of uncertainty that causes stress and anxiety.

But by focusing your attention on small daily actions, you can move forward even in the face of uncertainty. And in turn, that reduces stress and anxiety.

We’ve worked with thousands of people and seen this approach work time and time again. So we have a strong belief it’ll work for you, too.

For our part, we’re continuing to focus our daily actions on fulfilling our company purpose.

That purpose is to provide our students, coaches, and clients with the education, tools, and support you need to improve your own life and the lives of others.

And that’s not going to change.

In the coming days, weeks, and even months, we’ll be helping you navigate these new challenges and continue to make the progress you want. Whether you’re looking to achieve your personal health and fitness goals… or build a rewarding health and fitness career.

For today, we’ll leave you with this: A package of timely health and fitness resources you can use for yourself or share with your clients. Because as you know, it’s more important than ever that you take care of yourself (and help others do the same).

These resources, of course, are only a first small step. Just consider it a simple daily action that helps us serve our company purpose. (We feel less stressed already.)

Be well,

- TJ, Marc, and the PN Team

P.S. In case you aren’t aware, PN has been a 100% remote workplace for nearly 20 years. Over that time, we’ve figured out a lot (we have over 100 employees).

So if you’re a coach and remote work is new to you (or you’re interested in trying it), we can help. Keep a lookout in your inbox for a new free resource that’ll be available next week.
