Frequently Asked Questions
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 and your online clients.
As a coach, you know your clients’ unique values and goals. (You know better than we do.) You have the power to use that expertise to uniquely personalize each of your clients’ programs.
With every new client, you determine the order of the habits that are right for them. Then, as you continue to learn more about them, you can continue to adapt along the way. The personalized program shows your clients proof that they’re being heard.
At Precision Nutrition, our personal coaching clients have paid from $99 to $179 USD per month to work with our own coaches. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
For now, no. But you’ll have your own contact info listed as “the coach” and everything will run through you.
At this time, ProCoach is delivered in English only; so as long as your clients understand English, they can use the program.
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.
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.
