Precision Nutrition Level 1 – 4th Edition – NOW AVAILABLE!
We took the most cutting-edge research available anywhere, and put everything in the new 4th Edition. Since we first launched the Precision Nutrition Certification, we’ve been recognized as the world’s most definitive source on the science of nutritionand the art of nutrition coaching.
Indeed, over 2 million people passionate about fitness and nutrition visited our website last month. That’s enough to fill the Dallas Cowboy’s stadium 20 times over. Yet we’re never satisfied with yesterday’s success.
Nutrition science is dynamic, new discoveries are made almost daily. And that’s just on the research side. As we continue to coach clients (over 100,000 of them to date), we’re discovering new methods of helping them achieve real, lasting behavior change.
That’s why we’re constantly updating the course curriculum. This is great for you since we just released our fourth edition.
Effective Nutrition Coaching – the missing piece in health and fitness
After 25 years in the field, Precision Fitness has learnt that professional nutrition coaching is missing in every corner of our industry — from personal training and manual therapy, to functional medicine, group exercise, yoga, and beyond.
Without effective nutrition skills, professionals struggle to get impressive results with the people they work with, which often signals the end of the relationship. After trying (and failing) to help multiple clients or patients, it’s easy to see why many lose their passion for the work and even consider leaving the field altogether!
But with effective nutrition skills, you can feel confident, competent, and credible. You can offer advice that you know is right. And you can transfer knowledge in the right way, so that each person you work with gets the results they’re looking for.
Put simply: Knowing how to coach nutrition effectively is the key to helping people get the results they deserve
The health and fitness field is changing quickly. Obesity and diet-related illness are at an all-time high and millions of people need help with their nutrition more than ever. Whatever specific field you work in, it’s important to understand that the most successful professionals will be those who have a deep understanding of nutrition science and the ability to effectively help others.
That’s what we do every day. 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 and patients worldwide.
What is the Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification?
Imagine if you had all the nutrition, coaching, and change psychology research…all the scientific concepts…all the experience…all the practical “how-to” stuff…all in one place. If you had a trusted source of education…a proven system…and real-life advice to help guide your professional development.
If it came in a clear, understandable, self-paced learning format that suited your schedule. And if, at the end of the process, you had a system (like ProCoach) to deliver the habit-based nutrition coaching you just learned, so you can grow a practice while working less and getting better results.
That’s what The Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification is here for
In addition to learning how nutrition really works, you’ll understand how people think and act, and you’ll be able to turn that into a thriving coaching practice. This means you’ll get better results, attract more clients and patients, keep them for longer, and make more money than you thought possible.

If you follow the structure, you can expect to spend 3-5 hours per week on the certification materials, Since there are a 20 total chapters, you’d earn your Precision Nutrition Level 1 credentials in a little over four months. Although you can move more quickly or slowly depending on your situation.
What are the exams like?

Then exams are delivered online; they can be accessed whenever you’re ready. Also, each exam corresponds with the chapter you just studied and completing the exam unlocks the next chapter.
For instance, if you read Chapter 1 of the textbook, watch the corresponding video lesson, answer your workbook questions, and review the FAQ, you’ll be ready to take the Chapter 1 exam. Once the Chapter 1 exam is completed, you’ll instantly see your results and get access to the Chapter 2 materials.
What grade do I need to pass?
