The Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification is the world’s most respected nutrition education program. It gives you the knowledge, systems, and tools to really understand how food influences a person’s health and fitness. Plus the ability to turn that knowledge into a thriving coaching practice.
Developed over 15 years, and proven with nearly 100,000 clients and patients, the Precision Nutrition curriculum stands alone as the authority on the science of nutrition and the art of coaching.
Whether you’re already mid-career, or just starting out, the PN Level 1 Certification is your springboard to a deeper understanding of nutrition, the authority to coach it, and the ability to turn what you know into results.
For more, check out this short video; it includes interviews with renowned health, fitness, and medical professionals who’ve experienced the program:
On Wednesday, April 4th, we’re opening registration for the next Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification group.
The certification gives health, fitness, and wellness professionals — along with those thinking of joining the field — the ability to turn their interest in nutrition into a valuable skill set they can use to help others.
And, the way the world is going, this skillset is needed now more than ever!
So, if you want to learn, we want to teach you, because…
Proven nutrition coaching is what’s missing from health, fitness, and wellness today.
I got involved in nutrition coaching about 25 years ago. At the time, something became immediately clear.
No matter how knowledgeable I was about the science of nutrition, without a deep understanding of how people actually change, everything I knew about food never really benefited those who came to me for help.
I started talking about this with friends and colleagues — physicians, personal trainers, manual and physical therapists, yoga teachers, group exercise instructors — and they were all experiencing the same frustrations.
Indeed, without effective nutrition coaching skills, most professionals struggle (and sometimes fail) to help clients and patients achieve their goals.
On the other hand, with effective nutrition coaching skills, health, fitness, and wellness professionals can feel confident, competent, and credible.
They can offer advice they know is right, in the right way, so clients and patients achieve the health improvements and body transformations they’re after.
What if you could be a changemaker, a leader, the kind of professional who makes a real difference?
Imagine if you had all the nutrition, coaching, and change psychology research… all the scientific concepts… all the experience… all the practical “how-to” stuff… all in one place.
Imagine if you had a trusted source of education… a proven system… and real-life advice to help guide your development.
Imagine if your education came in a clear, understandable, self-paced learning format that suited your schedule.
And imagine if, at the end of the process, you had a system to deliver the habit-based nutrition coaching you just learned, so you can grow your practice while working less and getting better results.
That’s what The Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification is here for.
Learn more about the science of nutrition plus how to apply what you know with the people who turn to you for help.
With the Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification you’ll get better results, attract more clients/patients, keep them longer, grow your reputation, and increase your earning potential.
So, whether you’re:
- just starting out in a health/fitness/wellness field,
- already an established professional,
- considering a career change, or
- wanting to deepen your knowledge of nutrition…
…you can become Precision Nutrition Certified.
Which means you’ll be able to:
- help clients/patients eat better — safely and effectively;
- become the go-to expert in your business or community;
- help your friends and family with their nutrition and health;
- connect with other top professionals in the field;
- continue to learn with us even after you’ve completed the course;

And the Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification will help you do it.

Why choose Precision Nutrition?
There are many good reasons to choose the Precision Nutrition Certification to advance your knowledge and grow your coaching practice.
Here are just a few of them.
We wrote the book on nutrition coaching.
We couldn’t find a textbook that did all the things we wanted to do, nor all the things we wanted to teach others.
So we created one based on our extensive research and work with nearly 100,000 clients. It’s called The Essentials of Sport and Exercise Nutrition.
It’s a 600-page opus — now totally re-envisioned and in its 3rd edition — that covers every aspect of the latest science and practice of nutrition coaching.
With this incredible learning resource we’re doing everything in our power to change the game. We’re out to educate and train a new, more effective, kind of health, fitness, and wellness professional.
And we’re being recognized for it by the top organizations in the world.
The PN Method has been validated clinically.
The Precision Nutrition Method, which drives our Certification and ProCoach programs, was recently validated in 3 peer-reviewed studies.
This means that the system you’ll learn in the Level 1 program is truly “evidence-based”.
Having worked with nearly 100,000 clients, we know our system is highly effective at helping people lose fat, build strength, and make big health improvements. Now the medical and scientific communities know it too.
You get the latest science, the latest practice, the very best for your clients/patients.
As mentioned above, we’re constantly updating the course curriculum to keep pace with new discoveries in the field. That’s why our 3rd edition includes:
- new textbook with the latest research findings in nutrition, physiology, change psychology, and coaching practice (click here to download the table of contents);
- new video lectures, one for each textbook chapter, to help you better learn the material and retain what you’ve learned (check out a sample video below, it’s awesome);
- new workbook with exercises and thought experiments to help prepare you for your end-of-chapter exams; and
- new client assessments and forms to help you gain a better understanding of the needs of your clients/patients (click here to download an overview of the questionnaires and assessments).
As an example, here’s “Through the GI Tract” — which supplements Chapter 2 of the textbook. (Remember, every chapter has an awesome video like this, to go along with the text).
The Precision Nutrition Certification is everything we’ve learned over the last 15 years, brought together, and are sharing with you.
Unlike most other certifications, this isn’t a program full of abstract theory that doesn’t work in the real world. (Nor is it a program full of internet level, social media arguer, keyboard jockey type information.)
Instead, it’s deep knowledge that’s client-tested, scientifically proven, and constantly updated based on the data we’ve collected working directly with nearly 100,000 clients.
In fact, Precision Nutrition is the only nutrition certification company in the world that successfully coaches real clients every day.
