What is a Certified Sleep, Stress Management, and Recovery Coach?

In today’s high-stress world, many people need more than just exercise and diet advice. To support fitness and nutrition habits—especially during major life upheavals (like a pandemic)—they need a solid foundation of sleep, stress management, and recovery skills. Without those skills, their health habits are likely to crumble.

As a Certified Sleep, Stress Management, and Recovery Coach, you’ll learn how to help them build a rock-solid foundation so they can achieve their health and fitness goals—no matter what life throws their way. Because helping people with sleep, stress management, and recovery shouldn’t feel beyond your skillset or outside your comfort zone. It should be an essential, reliable part of your coaching toolkit.

With the PN Sleep, Stress Management, and Recovery (SSR) Certification, you’ll be able to:

Learn from the world’s leading experts in sleep, stress, and mental performance in an industry-leading program.

Save time and energy researching solutions for your clients, with access to dozens of shareable resources you can customize for any client.

Set yourself apart as one of the first coaches in the health industry to specialize in sleep, stress management, and recovery.

Help clients get unstuck, move past plateaus, and make real, meaningful progress so they feel better than they have in years.

Gain the confidence to develop personalized sleep, stress management, and recovery plans for anyone—based on strategies from top experts and extensive client research.

Support overwhelmed and burned out clients so they feel in control again and continue to make progress (instead of giving up).

Practice the program’s highly-effective strategies on yourself—so that you can benefit as you help others.

Transform lives in ways that other coaches can’t. Keep more clients and get more referrals as a result.

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, Fitness Coach and PN L1 Certified Coach in SSR, Nutrition

“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

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, I didn’t anticipate it motivating me as much as it has to make changes for myself!”

– Tiffany Heath, Exercise Physiologist and PN Certified Coach in SSR, Nutrition (PN2)
