Nutrition coaching can make (or break) your results.

When your job is to help people get in better shape, focusing on nutrition is an important and effective step. But there’s a big problem: Most trainers don’t feel, or ain’t qualified to coach nutrition.
They don’t know where to start, what recommendations to make (or when to make them), or how to get their clients to actually follow the plan.
Despite their best intentions, these trainers often fail to get their clients the results they deserve… which leads to negative feelings of confusion, stress, and burn-out.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Nutrition coaching doesn’t have to be so confusing or difficult.

In the Precision Nutrition Certification, we’ll provide everything you need to know to feel confident and qualified. Very quickly, you’ll be able to offer advice that you know is right, and to communicate it effectively, so every client gets the results they’re looking for.

What does the PN Level 1 Certification cover, specifically?

The Level 1 Certification comes in three-unit textbooks, beautifully packaged in a box set for easy reference. Unit 1 teaches you the unique and proven Precision Nutrition approach to coaching. Unit 2 teaches you the science of nutrition in a fun, easy-to-understand format. And Unit 3 gives you a step-by-step process to apply everything you’ve learned, from coaching to business strategies, so you can start getting immediate results.

Unit 1

In Unit 1, you’ll learn all about the Precision Nutrition approach to coaching.

We’ll show you how to:

  • Set yourself up for the best learning experience
  • Explore your own coaching style
  • Use scientific evidence in coaching
  • Build a healthy coaching relationship with clients
  • Coach people to “deep health”—where your clients thrive in all areas of their lives (physical, mental, emotional, and so on)
Unit 2

Next up is Unit 2, where you’ll dive into the science of nutrition. We’ll cover topics like:

  • The body’s systems, organs, and cells
  • Calories and metabolism
  • Digestion, absorption, and water balance
  • Energy production, fat storage, and muscle gain
  • Macronutrients: protein (amino acids), carbohydrate (fiber, sugar, and starch) and fat (triglycerides and fatty acids)
  • Vitamins, minerals, and zoonutrients (yes, zoonutrients!)
  • And much more
Unit 3

In Unit 3 you’ll learn how to best apply all this new information, including how to:

  • Walk clients through the PN Coaching process step-by-step
  • Assess clients, gather data, and identify their goals
  • Create an action plan they’ll actually follow
  • Measure their progress and adjust where necessary
  • Help them achieve lasting changes in their health and lives

Figuring it out on your own won’t get you far…

If you’re going to do nutrition with your clients, you want to do it right. But where should you start?

Should you go back to school?

It depends on your situation. If you have the time and money then it may be an option for you. Then again, most university nutrition classes are heavily focused on clinical dietetics (like what to feed hospital patients and how to prevent nutrition deficiencies). Important education for important work, but there’s almost zero emphases on real-world coaching, and how to actually get your clients to follow your advice.

Should you learn from the internet and social media?

The internet is great, but we don’t recommend basing your entire knowledge base on the stuff you learn there. That’s because the internet is full of strong opinions backed by little-to-no data. It’s more likely you’ll leave feeling even more confused, rather than confident.

Nothing - and we mean nothing - addresses the two biggest problems most professionals face every day:

  • How to use both nutrition science and coaching psychology to get the best possible results for their clients
  • How to get the education they need—on their terms and within their schedule—without having to go back to school
  • Except the Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification – Offered exclusively in New Zealand by Fit Futures Academy
