Since 2005, Precision Nutrition has certified over 150,000 health and fitness professionals worldwide, giving them the skills and knowledge to successfully coach nutrition and get results.

We have tried every nutrition program out there. Precision Nutrition is by far the most thorough, informative, effective system we have seen. Not only is our entire team PN-certified, we recommend it to every gym we consult with.

Alwyn and Rachel Cosgrove, Owners of Results Fitness

I’m so glad I took this leap of faith. I’m now more confident in my knowledge and have started coaching a few clients. The PN Certification has been a real game changer!

Khosi Hlongwane, Fitness and Nutrition Coach

After just the first three chapters of the PN Certification, I started putting my new knowledge into practice with my clients. As I read further, I developed new coaching skills and was able to separate nutrition myths from the truth.

Ray Chan, Accountant-turned-Health and Fitness Coach

Not only did the PN Certification improve my confidence, it added credibility to everything I said between sets, especially in relation to food and nutrition. I love being an entrepreneur, being able to assert myself, and I can coach in a way that resonates with my values.

For a growing number of people, life in the 2020s has completely reordered their priorities.

They’re facing unprecedented challenges in their health and lives. They’ve become less active and more isolated. They’re sleeping less, they’ve gained unwanted weight, and they’re stressed to the max.

Now they’re looking for someone to help them improve their physical and mental health, bolster their immunity, and better handle stress—so they can feel and function their best.

And they’re not the only ones suffering. If you work in health and fitness, maybe you’ve struggled to get and keep clients… grappled with gym closures and reopenings… pivoted to online or “hybrid” coaching… or even considered whether you should stay in this field.

The good news?

You can help these people in the biggest ways possible, while positioning your business to succeed—both now and in the future.

Whatever your clients’ goals—from dropping fat and gaining strength, to making it through the day without binge eating, becoming more resilient to stress, and anything in between—you can help them.

In the world’s #1 recommended PN Nutrition Certification, we’ll show you how!

We’ll teach you everything you need to know about nutrition science and the art of behavior-change coaching, so you can impact your clients’ health in significant ways—from the very first time you meet with them, until they reach all their goals.

When you help people get the results they deserve, everything else becomes easier…

From attracting and retaining clients, to generating referrals and growing a rock-solid coaching business that impacts lives for years to come—no matter what happens.

  • Master the art of behavior-change coaching—so you can help anyone achieve sustainable results. (This separates you from the vast number of coaches out there.)
  • Learn how to help your clients bridge the gap between knowing and doing, so they can make progress like never before.
  • Connect with PN’s top experts and your coaching peers around the world. Ask questions, get advice, join optional study groups, troubleshoot coaching scenarios, and level-up your career.

Pricing

Save up to 30% on the #1 rated PN Nutrition Certification when you add your name to the free presale list.

The general public price of the PN Nutrition Certification is $119 USD per month for 12 months.

But when you join the free presale list today, you’ll get the opportunity to get it for only $99 USD per month or a one time payment of $999 USD–up to 30% savings.

That means you can boost your nutrition coaching skills, advance your career, and change lives, all for around $3 a day… the price of a takeout coffee, and a tiny fraction of the cost of going back to school.

Important note: Spots in the PN Nutrition Certification are limited and have historically sold out in hours, so joining the presale list gives you the best chance at getting in.

Which is better—taking the PN Nutrition Certification or going back to school?

We won’t pretend to have the perfect advice for every situation, but we do have some thoughts on this topic…

If you decided to go back to school for a nutrition degree or to become a registered dietitian, you’d likely spend anywhere from $10,000 – $20,000 USD per year. If you did a four-year degree, you’d be looking at spending upward of $40,000 – $100,000 USD.

The only problem? Most university courses lack real-world coaching opportunities. And most professors aren’t experienced coaches. That’s why many students find that they’re stuck once they graduate.

It’s also why, in the PN Nutrition Certification, we’ll share a proven coaching system that’s guaranteed to get results for anyone who comes to you for help—at a tiny fraction of the cost of attending a university.

Here’s a quick comparison…

Final note

Nutrition is key when it comes to helping someone achieve their health and fitness goals—whether they want to lose fat, tone up, gain strength, feel less stressed, get better sleep, improve their mental health, or anything else.

But successful coaches realize that understanding nutrition science isn’t enough. You must also be able to effectively help others change their eating and lifestyle behaviors.

That’s what we do every day (no other nutrition certification company does this). And we’re ready to teach you the same science-based coaching method we’ve used with major health organizations, professional sports teams, Olympic athletes, and over 100,000 clients worldwide.

Of course, if now isn’t your time, we understand. We hope this helped you understand who we are and what we do. We’ll be here if and when you need us.

But if now is the time for you to build your own nutrition knowledge—or learn how to help others with their health and fitness—then the PN Nutrition Certification is everything you need to help people get sustainable results while you build a remarkable career or fulfilling side gig.

We’re excited to teach you everything we know about the science of nutrition and the art of behavior-change coaching.

But the next step is yours.

Hope to see you in the program,

– The PN Team
