Learn how to coach nutrition the right way—and get life-changing results.
We all know how important nutrition is for getting fit and healthy. But when it comes to actually helping people change, most coaches don’t feel as confident in their abilities as they’d like to.
After all, it’s one thing to know a lot about “macros” and “energy balance” and “what’s worked for me.” But it’s a whole different story to translate that knowledge into an action plan that works for someone else, while expertly guiding them through a successful transformation.
This is where other nutrition programs miss the mark. They teach a little science (that you’ll probably never even use), and then they send you on your merry way to figure out the “coaching” part on your own.
At Precision Nutrition, we do things differently. We realize that knowing nutrition science is only half of the equation when it comes to getting people the results they deserve.
The other (and more important) half: Knowing how to break down your client’s complex goals into a series of proven practices that will lead them to lasting changes. This is precisely what we specialize in.
We’ve successfully coached over 100,000 clients since 2005. (In fact, we’re the only nutrition certification company in the world that coaches its own clients.) In the Precision Nutrition Certification, we’ll teach you the nutrition science you need to feel competent in your knowledge. And we’ll show you our client-tested behavior change methodology so you can help anyone make sustainable transformations—no matter what’s going on in their lives.
Plus you’ll get free access to ProCoach, our online nutrition coaching software, for use with up to one client—so you can put what you’re learning into practice and start coaching online from anywhere in the world.
Bottom line: Understanding nutrition science and knowing how to help people change is the key to getting incredible results (and the business you deserve).
In the PN Certification, we’ll show you how.
What if you could make a real difference with the people you work with—and never feel confused about nutrition again?
Imagine how good it would feel to have total confidence in your nutrition knowledge… to finally feel qualified to give nutrition advice… and to feel ready to coach anyone to better health and fitness.
That’s what the Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification has done for nearly 100,000 coaches. (And it’s why we’re the #1 recommended nutrition certification program among health and fitness professionals.)
Now, we’re ready to show you everything we know.
With the Precision Nutrition Certification, you’ll learn how to:
- Give the right advice at the right time
- Get better results… with less effort
- Boost your credibility and establish your reputation
- Build the kind of business (and lifestyle) you’ve always wanted.
The best part? You’ll never feel confused about what to do with your clients ever again. With our help, you’ll learn how nutrition really works—and discover how to coach people through powerful transformations.
No matter where you’re at in your career, you can become Precision Nutrition Certified… and learn how to coach nutrition in the most effective way possible.
And the Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification will help you do it.

Even better, you’ll get the education you need, on your terms and on your schedule—without having to go back to school.
What you’ll learn in the Precision Nutrition Certification
We couldn’t find a textbook or a course that did all the things we wanted to do, nor all the things we wanted to teach others.
So we created the Precision Nutrition Certification, based on our extensive research and work with over 100,000 clients.
It’s packed with the latest findings in nutrition and behavior-change psychology, and includes practical coaching strategies, plus a step-by-step system for getting results with anyone.
Let’s get specific…
In Unit 1, you’ll learn all about the Precision Nutrition approach to coaching. After working with over 100,000 clients (and counting), we’ve learned what really works for helping people change. Now we’re passing it onto you.
We’ll show you how to:
- Set yourself up for the best learning experience
- Explore your own coaching style
- Use scientific evidence in coaching
- Build a healthy coaching relationship with clients
- Coach people to “deep health”—where your clients thrive in all areas of their lives (physical, mental, emotional, and so on)
Next up is Unit 2, where you’ll dive into the science of nutrition. We’ll cover topics like:
- The body’s systems, organs, and cells
- Calories and metabolism
- Digestion, absorption, and water balance
- Energy production, fat storage, and muscle gain
- Macronutrients: protein (amino acids), carbohydrate (fiber, sugar, and starch) and fat (triglycerides and fatty acids)
- Vitamins, minerals, and zoonutrients (yes, zoonutrients!)
- And much more
It’s like getting a graduate-level education in nutrition science. Yes, you’re going to “nerd out” a bit! But don’t be intimidated. Each chapter is written in a way that’s easy to consume and comprehend.
In Unit 3 you’ll learn how to best apply this new information, including how to:
- Walk clients through the PN Coaching process step-by-step
- Assess clients, gather data, and identify their goals
- Create an action plan they’ll actually follow
- Measure their progress and adjust where necessary
- Help them achieve lasting changes in their health and lives
- Work with all types of clients and situations
- Build a coaching business, in-person or online
In all, you’ll get nearly 700 pages of the latest, most effective research in nutrition science and behavior-change psychology—co-authored by some of the industry’s leading authorities in health and fitness.
And that’s not even including the workbook & study guide, case-studies, and video seminars you’ll have access to.
Like this video from Chapter 3, called “What is a great coach?”:
