Why become a Sleep, Stress Management, & Recovery Coach?

Because poor sleep, overwhelming stress, and inadequate recovery are often the REAL reasons people struggle to make healthy lifestyle changes.

Each of these factors negatively affects everything from a person’s mood and energy levels, to their mental and emotional well-being, to their relationships and decision-making ability. With all of that working against them?

Adopting healthy habits is nearly impossible.

In fact, the American Psychological Association reports that more people are relying on “unhealthy habits”—overeating, exercising less, consuming more alcohol—in order to cope with their high-stress lives.

And, as a consequence, “mental and physical health is on a continuing decline for many people.”

That’s where YOU come in.

With this groundbreaking certification, you’ll gain the knowledge, tools, and skills you need to help anyone overcome their biggest barriers to eating better, moving more, and feeling deep pride in their health and fitness.

You’ll master evidence-based methods for helping people solve problems like:

Emotional eating

Lack of time

Self sabotage

Mental exhaustion

Night worrying


All-or-nothing thinking

Sleep and menopause

Low energy

Counterproductive coping

Self criticism


The results can be life-changing.

It doesn’t take a behavior scientist to see how each of these challenges impact healthy eating and lifestyle habits.

By learning to help clients finally overcome the challenges that derail their health, nutrition, and fitness… over… and over… and over again… you’ll be able to help them feel the BEST they have in years. Maybe the best they’ve felt EVER.

That’s the transformational power of this certification program.

Only opens twice a year.

“Sleep, Stress Management, and Recovery Certification is one of the most life-changing experiences I’ve ever gone through. You will TRANSFORM yourself and transform others. What are you waiting for? This is hell yes from me. You won’t regret it.”

– DeAndre Sinette, Certified Sleep and Behavior Coach, PN Certified Coach in SSR

“Not only did this course help me be a better coach, but it also made me a better person. Before, I was overworking myself a lot. And now, even though I’m busier, I’ve learned how to balance it better. I’m so resilient, and it's because I’ve applied the course to my own life.”

– Mallory Matteo, PN1-SSRC, PT, DPT, Doctor of Physical Therapy and Owner of Feed Your Soul Wellness Coaching

The world needs Certified Sleep, Stress Management, and Recovery Coaches more than ever before.

People are becoming more stressed-out and sleep-deprived, not less—especially over the last 2 years. And it’s having an impact.

People are struggling…

The good news? You can help them feel and perform better with the strategies you’ll learn in the Level 1 Sleep, Stress Management, and Recovery Coaching Certification.

When you become a Certified Sleep, Stress Management, and Recovery Coach, you’ll help your clients in ways that 99% of other coaches can’t, thanks to an expert certification designed to give you the structure, science, and coaching tools you need to coach any client—whether they’re already stuck or just starting out.

You’ll move beyond exercise and nutrition alone, and start coaching your clients more holistically, as you help them optimize their sleep, better manage stress, and recover more effectively. This will impact every other area of their lives—from their health and wellness, to their relationships, mindset, emotions, and more.

When you do that, your clients will feel more heard and supported, be more likely to stick around—and refer their friends and family to the coach that “gets it.” And in the end? You’ll have an in-demand business that transforms people on a deeper level than ever before.

“ If my clients all live in a stress-free world…. they’ll have no problem getting results. But that’s not real life.”

– Tony Arreola, PN1-SSRC, PN1-NC, CEO of Total Body Project, Inc.

“The SSR course gave me a totally different perspective on the possibilities of what health and fitness can be. The program was a game-changer. Everyone deals with stress. Everyone deals with sleep problems. I would absolutely recommend this certification.”

— Marissa Graham, PN1-SSRC, Co-Owner of Nocturnal Coaching

If you want to have the biggest impact—learn from the best.

Why learn from PN?

Over 17 years ago, we revolutionized nutrition coaching and transformed it into what it is today.

We steered people away from meal plans, crash diets, and “magic bullet” supplements, and taught them both the science of nutrition and the art of coaching so they could take a new, science-based and holistic approach to their minds, bodies, and lives. It’s why we’re trusted by over 150,000+ health and fitness professionals around the world.

Now, we’re doing the same thing for the most overlooked areas of health.

PN created the industry’s first comprehensive certification on Sleep, Stress Management, and Recovery. Inside, you’ll gain the tools and knowledge you need to help anyone—from average folks to elite athletes—achieve restorative sleep, manage daily stressors, and optimize recovery so they can feel better, perform stronger, and achieve the results they deeply crave. 

We’ve partnered with the world’s leading experts in sleep, stress, coaching, and mental performance to create this world-class educational program. Now you’ll know what the experts know, so you can get better results than ever.

Our certifications are based on extensive research and results. That’s because we’re the only certification company that coaches real people every single day (100,000+ to date). We help them eat better, get fitter, sleep more, and live healthier. We take all our learnings from clients, data from interviews with thousands of real coaches, and use it to improve our certification programs. All so that everything you learn is based on hands-on results from the real world.

“I was so focused on wanting to take this course so I could better help my clients that I didn’t anticipate it motivating me as much as it has to make changes for myself!”

– Tiffany Heath, PN1-SSR, PN2, Exercise Physiologist and owner of TRH Fitness
