Bernie and Paul spent the past 12 months transforming their eating habits, health, bodies, and lives with personal help from a PN coach. And now? They’re our latest Grand Prize winners. See how we surprised them with $25,000 each, and meet the rest of our January 2020 Precision Nutrition Coaching winners.

++++

Every six months, in our Precision Nutrition Coaching program, we give away more than $125,000 to the men and women who have the most incredible, inspiring body transformations.

Yep, that’s more than $250,000 a year.

And today, you’ll meet our latest amazing winners.

These folks started working with us in January 2019 and—over the course of the past year—completely transformed how they eat, move, look, and feel.

They lost weight, gained strength, boosted their health, and inspired their friends and families.

What’s more, they did all of this without extreme diets or crazy workout routines. There were no meal plans or off-limit foods. No unbreakable rules. No deprivation. And perhaps best of all, no guilt.

Each person simply committed to making a change, stayed consistent, and used the accountability and support of one of our dedicated coaches.

$25,000 Grand Prize Winner: Bernie

Lost 45 lbs and 42 total inches!

Age: 46 years
Weight Lost: 45 lbs (from 165 lbs to 120 lbs)
Total Inches Lost: 42 inches (from 228 inches to 186 inches)

Bernie Stewart just couldn’t bear to show her arms.

That pretty, strappy top she’d so optimistically bought during a fit phase?

She felt she had to cover it up with a bolero cardigan.

She was also wearing what she calls her “Ali Baba” pants—voluminous and drapey enough to disguise the lumps and bumps underneath.

Hunched over a coffee, she stared at her tablet, desperately looking for something, anything to take her away from the endless round of diets.

After 35 years of fluctuating weight, 35 years of binge eating and emotional eating, 35 years of feeling guilty and ashamed, Bernie was fed up.

Now 46 years old and with two young children watching her every move, Bernie knew this wasn’t just about her any more.

Sure, she wanted to look great. She wanted to feel fit and healthy. But more than that, she wanted to set a positive example.

She wanted to change her attitudes to food and to herself. Precision Nutrition Coaching showed her how.  

“My issues with food and self-hatred were shocking.”

“At the start, I was still working with old conditioning,” Bernie says. She was the kind of person who could eat an entire pizza with a large side of chips, follow up with some cheesecake, and wash it all down with pints of sherry.

She liked the feeling of fullness, the way that rich and fatty food could numb her. Overeating was a pleasure and a comfort.

But it was also a kind of curse, dooming her to a constant and nasty internal chorus. “I was self-berating, guilt-ridden, self-flagellating,” she says.

Bernie knew she needed help to make a lasting change. From the moment she signed up for coaching, Bernie gave it her best.

Every time she clicked on a new day’s lesson or habit, she considered it a gift, and her passion and focus never wavered. By staying consistent and trusting the process, she lost some weight in the first month.

But the next few months tested her patience. The scale seemed to plateau and improvements weren’t as visible. Yet Bernie stayed the course.

In retrospect, Bernie sees she wasn’t really stagnating—she was laying the groundwork for deeper change.

Precision Nutrition didn’t promise a quick fix, like diets she’d tried in the past. Instead, it gave her the tools for a total transformation.

Among those tools was self-forgiveness.

For the first time in her adult life, Bernie didn’t interpret mistakes as signs of failure. Instead, she saw them as steps in a learning process.

“With this one change, I felt like a new person,” Bernie says.

She stopped blaming herself. Her guilt began to fade. A metaphorical weight had lifted, and with it, the physical weight began to melt away.

She started to feel more energetic. She had more fun with her kids. They noticed she was happier. Her friends noticed she was happier.

“I was more confident, clothes were fitting better, I was starting to see muscles, I was gaining strength.”

What surprised her most was how easy it all felt. 

“Just one small step at a time, no pressure and no strain or stress!” Bernie says.

$25,000 Grand Prize Winner: Paul

Lost 22 lbs and 13 total inches!

Age: 37 years
Weight Lost: 22 lbs (from 172 lbs to 150 lbs)
Total Inches Lost: 13 inches (from 230 inches to 217 inches)

There was a time in his life when Paul LeTourneau found it difficult to gain weight.

Eventually, he got so frustrated that, in order to beef up, he joined Scrawny to Brawny, a predecessor to Precision Nutrition Coaching.

It worked, too. Paul gained 22 pounds, became a finalist in that program, and was happier with his body and his fitness than he’d ever been.

But just as the program ended, Paul hurt his back. He had to go easier on his workouts. And then, over time, life got complicated. Work, more work, family stuff—the usual. Meanwhile, his metabolism was starting to slow down.

Bit by bit, his body composition was morphing from muscle to fat—almost without his knowledge.

Paul was eating the way you have to eat when you’re a skinny guy who wants to bulk up.

But he wasn’t that skinny guy any more.

Now, he was famous among his friends for gorging himself at buffets–those all-you-can-eat smorgasbords seemed made for him.

Meals always involved seconds. Sometimes even thirds. And when it came to snacks, he could swallow a large bag of chips without blinking.

At 37, Paul looked in the mirror and saw a belly for the first time in his life. 

He was also waking up with throbbing headaches. He knew he had to make a change, so he signed up for Precision Nutrition Coaching.

By the end of his first month in nutrition coaching, Paul was seeing improvements. He loved the way the program helped him track and measure his progress.

He started getting compliments from people at work. The morning headaches soon disappeared.

Then he injured his neck at the gym. The problem wasn’t serious, but it meant he had to cut back on his workouts for a while.

“In the past when I hit a roadblock, I’d probably give up. I’d figure, if I can’t go full out, why bother?”

This time, with his coach, Craig Weller’s help, he found ways to adapt his workouts and stay active. Instead of indulging in “all or nothing” thinking, Paul kept his goal in mind and looked for what he could do. 

And with that one small change, he inaugurated a whole new mindset.

Paul’s goal, from the start, was to improve his relationship with food. But this meant a shift in his identity. 

For years, overeating had been a kind of gimmick for him. It was the quality that friends knew him for, and one they seemed enjoyed him about him. Fifty-two wings in a sitting. Fifty chicken nuggets. It became a game to keep track of it all.

So, when he started to eat slowly and have smaller portions, he faced some ribbing and pushback from the crowd.

Where did the old Paul go? Who was this new version? Maybe he wouldn’t have as much fun. Maybe he wouldn’t be as much fun.

Maybe he wouldn’t be as manly.

Those were the thoughts that percolated in his mind (and his friends’ minds) as he started to change his behaviors.

It took determination and courage to stay true to his goals. 

Especially when the little voice in his head was telling him that losing weight would also mean losing muscle mass.

“Heavier can seem better for a guy,” he explains. When “big” and “strong” always go together, it doesn’t feel good when the scale starts to drop—even when you know you need to lose some fat.

But with his coach’s guidance, Paul began to understand that in trying to maintain a very high weight along with visible muscle, he was actually ignoring his natural body type and doing himself a disservice.

“My bones are small. My frame isn’t made to carry a lot of weight.”

Now, instead of aiming to be heavy and strong, Paul aims to be the strongest he can be—at the lightest he can be.

It’s a question of emphasis and balance.

Today, Paul is focused on reaching his own personal best—not someone else’s.

These days, he may not be packing in as many wings at the buffet table, but he’s enjoying his food a whole lot more.

And at 22 pounds leaner, he’s also stronger and fitter than he’s ever been.

“Everyone can be successful in this program,” Paul says.

“It’s like that proverb about the difference between giving a man a fish and teaching a man to fish,” he adds. “This program gives you the tools to stay fit and healthy for life.”

My main goal this past year with Precision Nutrition was to be more consistent. By planning and making better choices month after month, I slowly started seeing results. I’m working on ditching my all-or-nothing mindset and have made fitness a part of my life instead of being on a strict diet and doing super high intensity workouts for a short period of time. Now, I show up day after day because it’s just who I am!

My year with PN is reflected in the opening line of one my favorite poems: ‘Finally on my way to yes, I bump(ed) into all the places where I said no to my life’. In those moments, PN was there to help if I needed it, and YES is an amazing place to be.

– Jen

Total inches lost: 14″ (207″ to 193″)

It’s been an incredible year with PN. At the end of it I’m literally in the best shape of my life.

Just as awesome though have been the inner changes: I’m better privileging my own needs and letting go of chasing ‘perfect.’

$1,000 Men’s Winner

Age: 42 years

Weight Lost: 24 lbs (160 lbs to 136 lbs)

Total inches lost: 15″ (220″ to 205″)

This year I learned it’s almost always never about the food. I’ve shaped my life to be more focused, dealt with deep-rooted patterns that were holding me back, and built deep self-awareness. The care, kindness, and compassion I received from the PN team translated into me in allowing myself these courtesies. I’m now committed to supporting others as they learn about and shape their lives through food.

– Venkatraghavan

Jeff

$1,000 Men’s Winner

Age: 49 years

Weight Lost: 25 lbs (228 lbs to 203 lbs)

Total inches lost: 14″ (246″ to 232″)

Along with losing weight and achieving a level of fitness that I’ve never obtained before came an unexpected byproduct: mental strength. I’ve replaced anxiety and self-consciousness with a calmer more relaxed mindset and confidence. Not constantly thinking about my weight, what I look like, or expecting perfection of myself feels like freedom from my old self. Thank you PN!

– Jeff

RJ

$1,000 Men’s Winner

Age: 40 years

Weight Lost: 41 lbs (319 lbs to 278 lbs)

Total inches lost: 35″ (298″ to 263″)

As a small business owner, I’ve had a crazy-stressful year. But with the help and constant support of PN Coaching, I was able to better understand and overcome obstacles that would have knocked me off track in the past.

– RJ

Nick

$1,000 Men’s Winner

Age: 41 years

Weight Lost: 31 lbs (190 lbs to 159 lbs)

Total inches lost: 22″ (242″ to 220″)

One of the biggest things I got from my PN journey is that consistency really does beat perfection. There were loads of times that I had to scale back the workouts or eat less-than-perfect meals, but I always tried to make positive choices given the options or time available. My coach helped me to see those instances as successes—more so, actually, than when everything felt easy.

– Nick

Michael

$1,000 Men’s Winner

Age: 38 years

Weight Lost: 44 lbs (253 lbs to 209 lbs)

Total inches lost: 23″ (269″ to 246″)

Precision Nutrition told me to slow down, breathe, and just focus on the next rep, set, bite, or meal. And to let go of the past, welcome each new day, and celebrate every victory, no matter how small. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but this has helped me reclaim my life and be who I want to be.

– Michael

Craig

$1,000 Men’s Winner

Age: 42 years

Weight Lost: 48 lbs (242 lbs to 194 lbs)

Total inches lost: 36″ (268″ to 232″)

The biggest impact the program had was developing my self-esteem and confidence. I’d always talked myself out of long-term physical fitness, but I realized I shouldn’t give up on anything until I give it a shot. A lot of the lessons helped change my mindset, not just about fitness, but in life. Questioning negative thought patterns and being mindful in all parts of my life have paid HUGE dividends for me. I also learned that you don’t need a perfect plan to start something. Always take action instead of waiting for the ‘right time’ to do something.

– Craig

Michael

$1,000 Men’s Winner

Age: years

Weight Lost: 57 lbs (362 lbs to 305 lbs)

Total inches lost: 20″ (306″ to 286″)

PN has provided me with the ability to free myself from fear of hunger, anxiety about hitting a specific workout schedule, and an all-or-nothing attitude. My progress actually accelerated when I slowed down, which forced me to focus on and enjoy the process.

– Michael

Age: 25 years

Weight Gained: 10 lbs (from 187 lbs to 197 lbs)

The setup of the system, complete with the online platform, enables anyone who is willing to put in the work to succeed.

We also give clients a big, motivating goal to shoot for: $250,000 in cash prizes.

See, guys come to us wanting big changes:

  • They want to lose weight, build muscle, and shed body fat.
  • They want to feel physically and mentally strong.
  • They want to make healthier food choices, consistently.
  • They want to stop worrying about their health.
  • They want to start doing all the awesome things they previously wanted to do but thought they couldn’t.

Above all, they want to become the fittest, strongest, healthiest versions of themselves.

In our experience, big, inspiring, life-changing goals like these are a whole lot easier to achieve when there’s a huge bonus at stake.

So, every six months, we divvy up a big pot of prize money for the best transformations among our male and female clients.

For the current group—which started in January 2019 and is wrapping up now—we’ve committed $125,000.

And right now, we need your help to choose our Men’s Grand Prize winner.

Help choose our Men’s Grand Prize winner (Top prize = $25,000)

The guys below started their Precision Nutrition Coaching journey in all shapes and sizes, and they hail from all parts of the globe. They knew building a leaner, stronger, healthier, body could make every part of their lives better. And they were tired of being “that guy”…

The one who keeps a t-shirt on at the pool or the beach. The one who’s fearful of what might show up in routine blood work at their next yearly check-up. The one too winded to enjoy playing soccer or chase with their kids (or grandkids).

They’re a diverse group with one thing in common: Now, after just 12 months of Precision Nutrition Coaching, they have the bodies and health they’ve wanted for a long time, and they’re confident they’ll stay this way for good.

How’d they do it?

No crash diets. No Biggest Loser-type bootcamps. And no full-time chefs.

Just research-based nutrition and lifestyle habits practiced daily—and personalized help from our expert coaches.

Confirm your choice for the Men’s $25,000 Grand Prize winner

When confirming your vote, it’s important to remember that we’re not rewarding the best bodies per se. We’re rewarding the most incredible transformations.

In Precision Nutrition Coaching, we certainly don’t expect folks to start off looking like fitness models. Heck, we don’t even expect folks to end up looking like fitness models.

We’re looking for winners who’ve made the most dramatic changes in their own bodies, starting from wherever they were at the beginning.

That’s because our coaching is for men and women of all shapes and sizes. And your vote should reflect who you think achieved the most dramatic changes over the last 12 months.

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post’s poll.

Want to transform your body just like these men did?

Most people know that regular movement, eating well, sleep, and stress management are important for looking and feeling better. Yet they need help applying that knowledge in the context of their busy, sometimes stressful lives.

Over the past 15 years, we’ve used the Precision Nutrition Coaching method to help over 100,000 clients lose fat, get stronger, and improve their health… for the long-term… no matter what challenges they’re dealing with.

It’s also why we work with health, fitness, and wellness professionals (through our Level 1 and Level 2 Certification programs) to teach them how to coach their own clients through the same challenges.

Interested in Precision Nutrition Coaching? Join the presale list; you’ll save up to 54% and secure a spot 24 hours early.

We’ll be opening up spots in our next Precision Nutrition Coaching on Wednesday, January 15th, 2020.

If you’re interested in coaching and want to find out more, I’d encourage you to join our presale list below. Being on the list gives you two special advantages.

  • You’ll pay less than everyone else. At Precision Nutrition we like to reward the most interested and motivated people because they always make the best clients. Join the presale list and you’ll save up to 54% off the general public price, which is the lowest price we’ve ever offered.
  • You’re more likely to get a spot. To give clients the personal care and attention they deserve, we only open up the program twice a year. Last time we opened registration, we sold out within minutes. By joining the presale list you’ll get the opportunity to register 24 hours before everyone else, increasing your chances of getting in.

If you’re ready to change your body, and your life, with help from the world’s best coaches, this is your chance.

[Note: If your health and fitness are already sorted out, but you’re interested in helping others, check out our Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification program].

The post Precision Nutrition Coaching: January 2020 Men’s Finalists. Help us give away $125,000! appeared first on Precision Nutrition.

Only a year ago, these 20 women were feeling frustrated. They were inspired to eat healthier, move better, and feel stronger… but unsure how to make a change that would really stick. 

Now, after just 12 months of Precision Nutrition Coaching, they’ve taken control of their health and fitness for good—transforming their health, bodies, and lives more than they ever thought possible. Eating healthier and living an active lifestyle is now second nature. Something they do without stress and anxiety, and without feeling pressure to be perfect all the time.

They also have the chance to take home part of the $125,000 in prize money we’ve once again committed to our latest round of top clients. Scroll through these amazing photos and vote for the finalist whose transformation inspires you most. 

++

Every year in Precision Nutrition Coaching, we help men and women from around the world dramatically improve their eating habits, exercise routine, and lifestyle.

With a world-class coach guiding and supporting them every step of the way, they lose weight, gain strength, and completely transform their bodies, health, fitness, and lives.

We also give clients a big, motivating goal to shoot for: $250,000 in cash prizes.

Consider it an antidote to the “you must suffer and feel guilty to get in shape” message you typically get from the fitness industry.

See, women come to us wanting big changes:

  • They want to lose weight and shed body fat.
  • They want to gain strength and/or lean mass. 
  • They want to make healthier food choices, consistently.
  • They want to feel at ease, instead of stressed out, around food.
  • They want to feel confident and comfortable in their own skin.
  • They want to start doing all the awesome things they’ve always wanted to do, but thought they couldn’t.

Above all, they want to become the fittest, strongest, healthiest versions of themselves.

In our experience, big, inspiring, life-changing goals like these are a whole lot easier to achieve when there’s a huge bonus at stake.

So, every six months, we divvy up a big pot of prize money for the best transformations among our male and female clients.

For the current group—which started in January 2019 and is wrapping up now—we’ve committed $125,000.

And right now, we need your help to choose our Women’s Grand Prize winner.

Help choose our Women’s Grand Prize winner (Top prize = $25,000)

The women below started their Precision Nutrition Coaching journey in all shapes and sizes, and they hail from all parts of the globe.

As moms, partners, daughters, employees, students, siblings, caretakers—or some combination thereof—they’d spent a good deal of their time helping and caring for others. And they were ready to take care of themselves and start living their best life.

They’re a diverse group with one thing in common: Now, after just 12 months of Precision Nutrition Coaching, they have the bodies and health they’ve wanted for a long time, and they’re confident they’ll stay this way for good.

How’d they do it?

No crash diets. No Biggest Loser-type bootcamps. And no full-time chefs.

Just research-based nutrition and lifestyle habits practiced daily—and personalized help from our expert coaches.

To vote for the woman you think should win the $25,000 Grand Prize, scroll through the photos below. Make your choice by clicking the “Vote for Finalist” button under the one you think achieved the best transformation.

But please don’t stop there. Once you’ve seen all the finalists and selected your #1 choice, scroll down to the bottom of this post.

Tired of so-called “experts” telling you how to eat better and improve your fitness? If so, this article is your antidote. In it we share 35 tips, ideas, and strategies that actual clients—folks like you—have used to get into the best shape of their lives.

++++

Imagine a life where you…

…feel physically and mentally strong, capable of taking on any challenge without worrying that your energy levels or bodyweight will get in the way.

…can run around with your kids, or grandkids, without feeling pain, winded, or tired; and you can do it again the next day.

…excitedly book a beach vacation without wondering how you’ll look (or feel) in a swimsuit, walking along the beach.

…look forward to having your picture taken without wondering “who’s that person, and when did they start looking like that?”

It’s not a pipe dream.

Here at Precision Nutrition, we’ve worked with thousands of clients and heard their deepest reasons for wanting to change their bodies and their lives.

(You’ll read about some of them below, you’ll even see some of their photos).

Strange as it’ll seem, most of them didn’t believe change was really possible. Not within the context of their uniquely busy, often stressful lives.

When they started working with us, their goals seemed more like fantasies. Even the simple ones—like wanting to get up off the floor without having to say “umphhhh”—felt out of reach.

But notice what happened next.

They lost body weight and fat. They built strength. The reclaimed their health. And they took control of their fitness, some for the first time in their lives.

Nowadays they’re the women you see projecting confidence and walking tall. The men with flat stomachs and a totally clean bill of health.

So we decided to ask them:

How’d you do it?

Their real-world answers were so good we decided to share them today.

In this article you’ll learn:

  • The common obstacles many of our clients face.
  • The fears many of them felt when starting out.
  • How they overcame their fears, got past their obstacles.
  • And how you can do the same.

Before getting into it, though, I wanted to let you know that we’re soon opening spots in our Precision Nutrition Coaching program.

You see, twice a year we work with small groups of men and women interested in looking and feeling better. Over the course of 12 months we help them get into the best shape of their lives… and stay that way for good.

Just so you know, we’ve tested Precision Nutrition Coaching with close to over 100,000 clients over the past 15 years. Plus, several peer-reviewed research papers have documented the safety and effectiveness of our approach.

For a sneak peek at the amazing things we’ve helped them accomplish, check out this short video:

Meet some of the people whose bodies—and lives—have been changed by Precision Nutrition Coaching.

 

 

Wondering how you can experience these kinds of results for yourself?

Let’s turn it over to our Precision Nutrition Coaching graduates.

Having trouble getting started?

Don’t think, just do.

“If it’s your time, and you’re sitting on the fence—you want to do it, you’re thinking of doing it, you’re not sure if you should do it—jump off that fence,” says Patrick, 35, who lost 152 pounds with Precision Nutrition.

“Give it everything you’ve got; why sit out when you can be part of life?”

Patrick’s Transformation

Lost 152 lbs and 20% body fat!

Age: 35 years
Weight Lost: 152 lbs (from 417 lbs to 265 lbs)
% Body Fat Lost: 20% (from 39.1% to 19.1%)
Total Inches Lost: 73 inches (from 337 inches to 264 inches)

Turned off by every weight-loss program and tip you see?

Ignore mainstream advice.

Unrealistic (and, frankly, insulting) click bait like “Flatten Your Tummy in 5 Minutes a Day” and “Sculpt Your Butt While Sitting Still” are meant to drive ad sales, not get you in shape.

Most of our clients, once they see Precision Nutrition’s positive, practice-based approach, realize that the negative tone of health and fitness media was holding them back for years.

Find trustworthy friends or acquaintances who lost weight, and do what they did.

Why reinvent the wheel? When you see a true success story unfold before your eyes, copycat away. That’s how 46-year-old Sharon D’Arcy found Precision Nutrition, and she ended up losing more than 30 pounds.

(Click here for her story, which includes a bit of surprising inspiration.)

Sharon’s Transformation

Lost 33 lbs and 13% body fat!

Age: 46 years
Weight Lost: 33 lbs (from 151 lbs to 118 lbs)
% Body Fat Lost: 13% (from 28% to 15%)
Total Inches Lost: 18.5 inches (from 209.1 inches to 190.6 inches)

Make it about your journey.

Don’t assume you have to be “perfect” or “special” in order to be fit and healthy. 48-year-old Alicia had been on the diet-mobile for so long she started to think change just wasn’t possible for her.

Then one day, her mindset shifted. “Why not me?” she asked herself. She stuck that mantra to her mirror.

Every day, in a mindful, conscious way, she visualized her success. Forty-nine pounds later, Alicia went from a size 16 to a size 6 and became our $25,000 grand prize winner.

Alicia’s Transformation

Lost 49 lbs and 46 total inches!

Age: 48 years
Weight Lost: 49 lbs (from 181 lbs to 132 lbs)
Total Inches Lost: 46 inches (from 219 inches to 173 inches)

Struggling to get motivated and inspired?

Stop living in “coulda, woulda, shoulda”.

To make true progress, allow yourself to focus exclusively on what you can do now. Not in some hypothetical future where everything is perfect.

Just do the best you can with what you’ve got right now. It’s what allowed Sharon (above) to lose weight and fight cancer—all in the same year.

Have your reason.

Keep your specific motivation in mind, whether it’s getting fit enough to play sports with your kids or looking great on your wedding day. That last one is what helped 32-year-old Melissa lose 55 pounds.

“The whole time, I had this image of myself on my wedding day in my head,” Melissa says. “Walking tall, feeling amazing—feeling statuesque instead of soft around the edges.”

Melissa’s Transformation

Lost 55 lbs and 16% body fat!

Age: 32 years
Weight Lost: 55 lbs (from 231 lbs to 176 lbs)
% Body Fat Lost: 16% (from 34% to 18%)
Total Inches Lost: 38 inches (from 242 inches to 204 inches)

Feel more than you see.

Sure, wanting to look better is what motivates most clients to sign up for Precision Nutrition Coaching. But it’s not what gets them to oh-my-god-you-look-amazing transformations.

Healthy eating habits end up improving how they feel—how they move, think and generally enjoy life—which leads to continued healthy eating and dozens of pounds lost over time.

Focus on the joy of movement.

“Enjoy your body,” Sharon (above) says. “Take pleasure in movement. Take pride in what you can do.”

This deep appreciation for physical health is what allows many clients to maintain fitness regimens and weight loss over time.

Recognize true enjoyment.

Most Precision Nutrition clients come to realize that they’ve been eating mindlessly—packing in calories without really tasting the food—for a long time.

“There’s nothing inherently wrong with dessert,” explains Yano, 35, who lost 76 pounds with Precision Nutrition.

He still enjoys dessert occasionally, of course, and finds that having it only once in awhile is the key to really appreciating it.

Yano’s Transformation

Lost 76 lbs and 20.9% body fat!

Age: 35 years
Weight Lost: 76 lbs (from 256 lbs to 180 lbs)
% Body Fat Lost: 20.9% (from 34.1% to 13.2%)
Waist Inches Lost: 10 inches (from 43 inches to 33 inches)

Feel like the ‘real you’ has gotten lost somewhere along the way?

Pay attention to your environment.

Recognizing how their surroundings might have caused unhealthy habits to develop—like 29-year-old Sarah’s years of work in fast food restaurants—allows many Precision Nutrition clients to discover the why of who they are and start zeroing in on the power of how to change it.

Sarah’s Transformation

Lost 52 lbs and 14.2% body fat!

Age: 29 years
Weight Lost: 52 lbs (from 191 lbs to 139 lbs)
% Body Fat Lost: 14.2% (from 26.3% to 12.1%)
Total Inches Lost: 50 inches (from 239 inches to 189 inches)

Don’t fall to pack mentality.

“It turns out that a lot of people have health and weight issues, just like I used to have,” Yano (above) says.

“And often they don’t want to eat poorly; they just do it because everyone else—friends, family, the people around them—is doing it. That was my problem for a long time.”

Dive below the surface.

We can skim the top of our diet issues and see some small, fleeting changes on the scale… or we can really dig into our relationship with food, and make it better for the long run.

For Sarah (above), letting herself get vulnerable as she went through Precision Nutrition’s program turned into her greatest strength, opening her up to the process of self-questioning:

“How have trying times brought me to where I am now, and how have I coped?” Sarah asked herself. “What do I really care about? What gives me joy? How can I get more of that?”

Along the way, Sarah lost 52 pounds.

Say goodbye to the old you.

This isn’t some meaningless cliché. We’ve found that many people harbor an invisible fear of losing themselves if they lose a bunch of weight.

Consciously mourn your old self as you greet the healthier you. Lots of Precision Nutrition clients were able to recognize and minimize certain anxieties this way.

Stay connected to what you love about yourself.

“Just remember, you deserve all of the amazing insights, strength gains, friendships, learning—whatever you take from this program as you find and discover a new and best version of yourself,” Sarah (above) says.

“You are worthy.”

Exhausted just thinking about how much work you’ll have to do?

Know that everyone—everyone—has to work at it.

Fit, healthy people who look like they’ve got it all figured out have to put effort into eating right, too.

We know because Precision Nutrition coaches themselves talk about it a lot.

Clients say getting to know them is comforting, because you can see how they’re so focused on learning, growing, and becoming the best versions of themselves.

De-emphasize the “work” in “working out”.

So many Precision Nutrition clients say that one outcome of our program—and something that helps them maintain an optimal exercise schedule—is coming to see movement as play, as fun, as release.

Find the activities you love, and moving your body will become something you seek out, not dread.

Let it be easy.

Like many Precision Nutrition clients, 34-year-old Chrystalene used to beat herself up when she failed, and thought she should be able to get fit without a speck of help.

Luckily, through Precision Nutrition Coaching, she learned, “it doesn’t have to be hard all the time. And it’s okay to seek support. There’s probably a way to make your heavy thing lighter, and finding out how to do that is worth it.”

Her results—86 pounds lost and a $25,000 Grand Prize from Precision Nutrition—show what’s possible when you relax a little, and lean on the people around you.

Chrystalene’s Transformation

Lost 86 lbs and 55 total inches!

Age: 34 years
Weight Lost: 86 lbs (from 259 lbs to 173 lbs)
Total Inches Lost: 55 inches (from 269 inches to 214 inches)

Swap “comparison” for inspiration.

Forget envy and intimidation. Precision Nutrition clients notice that the program allows them to stop saying, “That could never be me” and start thinking of others’ success stories as inspiration.

Lots of Precision Nutrition clients come to the program with significant health issues to solve. Talk to them and let their energy fuel you.

Just take small steps every day

It’s easy to think you have to make all of the changes, all at once. But small steps really do add up.

That’s what 51-year-old Mark—who lost 42 pounds and won a $25,000 Grand Prize—learned from Precision Nutrition Coaching.

Says Mark, “Be patient. Just show up every day and focus on making small changes consistently”.

Mark’s Transformation

Lost 42 lbs and 32 total inches!

Age: 51 years
Weight Lost: 42 lbs (from 192 lbs to 150 lbs)
Total Inches Lost: 32 inches (from 237 inches to 205 inches)

Know a lot about health and nutrition, but can’t seem to change?

Redefine “knowing”.

“It’s about realizing that no matter how smart I am and how much I know about exercise, if I’m not living it, I don’t really know it,” says Kevin, 40, who lost 37 pounds on the Precision Nutrition program.

Kevin’s Transformation

Lost 37 lbs and 12.8% body fat!

Age: 40 years
Weight Lost: 37 lbs (from 177 lbs to 140 lbs)
% Body Fat Lost: 12.8% (from 20.1% to 7.3%)
Waist Inches Lost: 21 inches (from 226 inches to 205 inches)

Let others take the helm.

Many Precision Nutrition clients know a whole lot about health and nutrition coming into our program. In fact, a lot of them are fitness instructors and health professionals themselves. Why’s the weight still sticking to them?

Their lightbulb moment: Relinquishing control to coaches, who offer the practical lifestyle advice, daily habits, and—this is key—accountability that’s needed to create real change.

Find your route at the grocery store.

“Knowing” is not always the same as “doing”. So many people trying to “eat clean” get derailed by the mere sight of processed food.

Precision Nutrition clients learn how to navigate the supermarket (or restaurants or their workplaces) to avoid temptation.

The secret: Stay on the perimeter. Calorie-packed chips, cookies, pasta, sauces, and dressings are in the middle. The good stuff like vegetables, meats, eggs, and fruits are stocked on the outside, away from the aisles.

That’s what 46-year-old John learned, and he lost 106 pounds.

John’s Transformation

Lost 106 lbs and 13% body fat!

Age: 46 years
Weight Lost: 106 lbs (from 332 lbs to 226 lbs)
% Body Fat Lost: 13% (from 39% to 26%)
Waist Inches Lost: 12 inches (from 50 inches to 38 inches)

Find accountability.

“The truth is, I probably knew three-quarters of Precision Nutrition Coaching’s dietary recommendations before I started,” says Peter, 52, who dropped 33 pounds with Precision Nutrition.

“But the secret to losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight is consistency,” he says. Get someone to breathe down your neck, and you’ll make healthy choices your habit.

Peter’s Transformation

Lost 33 lbs and 11% body fat!

Age: 52 years
Weight Lost: 33 lbs (from 180 lbs to 147 lbs)
% Body Fat Lost: 11% (from 18% to 7%)
Waist Inches Lost: 5 inches (from 35 inches to 30 inches)

Can’t figure out how to work it into your busy life?

Realize there’s no such thing as “too busy”.

Precision Nutrition’s program is practically custom-designed for people who think they just “don’t have the time”. Oftentimes they’re our most successful clients.

Lisanne, 39, lost 38 pounds on the Precision Nutrition program while taking care of three small kids—including a nursing infant—and getting certified as a yoga instructor and doula.

Other clients work multiple jobs or have to travel five days a week and never know where they’ll be staying next. They tell us that Precision Nutrition coaching actually ends up easing their schedule by lending structure to their lives.

Lisanne’s Transformation

Lost 38 lbs and 14% body fat!

Age: 39 years
Weight Lost: 38 lbs (from 160 lbs to 122 lbs)
% Body Fat Lost: 14% (from 36% to 22%)
Total Inches Lost: 41 inches (from 229 inches to 188 inches)

Focus on what you can do right now.

Forget what you can’t do. Figure out what you’re capable of in this moment, and build from there.

“I had to find it within me to accept that it was okay to do things a bit differently, says Richard, 49, who dropped 103 pounds in our yearlong program.

“I had to accept that it was okay to do what I was capable of.”

Eventually, Precision Nutrition clients internalize this mantra: Start wherever you are. Use whatever you have. Do whatever you can.

Richard’s Transformation

Lost 103 lbs and 20% body fat!

Age: 49 years
Weight Lost: 103 lbs (from 318 lbs to 215 lbs)
% Body Fat Lost: 20% (from 40.9% to 20.9%)
Total Inches Lost: 30 inches (from 285 inches to 255 inches)

Picture the health role model you want for your kids.

Now be that.

“I want my kids to be healthy and happy and proud of the way they’re living their lives,” Lisanne (above) says. “It’s not enough for me to pay lip service to that idea—I have to be an example.”

Don’t confuse selfishness with self-love.

A lot of Precision Nutrition clients worry that prioritizing themselves will take them away from the people who need them, potentially damaging professional or personal relationships.

Then they discover that the opposite is true: Caring for themselves by addressing their diet and lifestyle makes them look and feel better—and that actually makes them more accessible and present for other people.

Stop thinking you have to dedicate your whole life to losing weight.

Sure, some of the changes you have to make to get healthy will be fundamental. But the truth is that you only need a few hours per week to build a great body.

By getting the right kind of help and following simple yet powerful daily practices, anyone can lose weight, get healthy, and feel better.

That’s what 34-year-old Kia realized, and she lost 61 pounds.

Kia’s Transformation

Lost 61 lbs and 19% body fat!

Age: 34 years
Weight Lost: 61 lbs (from 199 lbs to 138 lbs)
% Body Fat Lost: 19% (from 37% to 18%)
Total Inches Lost: 50 inches (from 252 inches to 202 inches)

Sometimes get frustrated and then quit?

Recognize that progress isn’t usually a straight line.

If you’re gauging success based on how much you weigh each morning, you’re bound to give up before you can establish healthy habits or see real change.

Almost as a rule, our clients’ progress graphs look like a crazy, twisted line of progress, regress, more progress, and lessons learned along the way (we know, because our software tracks it for them so they can follow along the whole time).

A year later, dozens of pounds lost—for good. Worth the roller coaster ride, for sure.

Stop blaming external factors.

“What I learned was that I had to take responsibility for my own decisions,” says Heather, 37, who lost 47 pounds on the Precision Nutrition program.

“I had to get real with myself. I learned the difference between thinking, ‘I have to do x,’ and ‘I choose to do x,’ and ‘I’m doing x.’”

Heather’s Transformation

Lost 47 lbs and 10% body fat!

Age: 37 years
Weight Lost: 47 lbs (from 219 lbs to 172 lbs)
% Body Fat Lost: 10% (from 38% to 28%)
Total Inches Lost: 43 inches (from 253 inches to 210 inches)

Make health programs bend to your needs.

Too often, people trying to get fit become discouraged because exercise and nutrition programs seem inflexible, not designed for their lives.

That’s what Precision Nutrition coaches help with. We help you build an “Owner’s Manual” of operating instructions for your life.

49-year-old Cheryl lost 68 pounds—despite the fact that she was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease partway through the Precision Nutrition program. No heavy lifting? No problem. We helped her modify the workouts.

“In some ways, the diagnosis was a relief,” Cheryl says. “At least it was okay for me to admit that I hadn’t been doing what others were doing in the gym.”

Cheryl’s Transformation

Lost 68 lbs and 20% body fat!

Age: 49 years
Weight Lost: 68 lbs (from 245 lbs to 177 lbs)
% Body Fat Lost: 20% (from 44% to 24%)
Total Inches Lost: 65 inches (from 280 inches to 215 inches)

Rewrite the basics.

“When I was in the middle of it, losing weight was at the forefront of my mind; now, everything is a habit,” says 36-year-old Katey, who despite having virtually no compliance with the Precision Nutrition program for the first 90 days went on to lose an impressive 116 pounds.

The key? Allowing herself to make truly fundamental lifestyle changes. “It feels a lot more like living,” she says.

Katey’s Transformation

Lost 116 lbs and 21% body fat!

Age: 36 years
Weight Lost: 116 lbs (from 255 lbs to 139 lbs)
% Body Fat Lost: 21% (from 39% to 18%)
Total Inches Lost: 65 inches (from 260 inches to 195 inches)

Don’t let one cookie derail you.

“I realized I could have a clean slate every time I ‘messed up’ because this was about my healthy lifestyle, and not just a diet,” says Patricia, 46, who lost 69 pounds with Precision Nutrition.

“Precision Nutrition Coaching taught me habits and changed the way I view my body and the food I put in it. It’s a life plan, and it’s something I know I can manage forever.”

Patricia’s Transformation

Lost 69 lbs and 25% body fat!

Age: 46 years
Weight Lost: 69 lbs (from 250 lbs to 181 lbs)
% Body Fat Lost: 25% (from 50% to 25%)
Total Inches Lost: 35 inches (from 250 inches to 215 inches)

Don’t expect unbroken enthusiasm.

Look, at times it’s a slog—and that’s true for everyone.

“I learned that sometimes you have to drag your ass to the gym, even if you don’t feel like going, and it was a huge burden that got lifted off me,” says Kim, 25, who lost 24 pounds with Precision Nutrition.

“And while the workout may be slow moving and uninspired at first, once you’re there it’s super easy to finish.”

Kim’s Transformation

Lost 24 lbs and 16.3% body fat!

Age: 25 years
Weight Lost: 24 lbs (from 160 lbs to 136 lbs)
% Body Fat Lost: 16.3% (from 29.5% to 13.2%)

Remember that change can catch you by surprise.

42-year-old Javier lost 60 pounds and took home a $25,000 grand prize at the end of his Precision Nutrition Coaching program.

Yet, until he saw his final photos, he did not fully recognize the change he had undergone.

In fact, just a few weeks before the photoshoot he was threatening to quit, and it was only the encouragement of his coach that kept him going.

Javier’s lesson: “remember that the road to success is paved with failures.”

Javier’s Transformation

Lost 60 lbs and 32 total inches!

Age: 42 years
Weight Lost: 60 lbs (from 245 lbs to 185 lbs)
Total Inches Lost: 32 inches (from 269 inches to 237 inches)

The certification gives health and fitness professionals the knowledge and tools they need to feel confident and qualified to coach nutrition with anyone.

Plus, you can lock in a one-time special discount—and save up to 44%! (More details below.)

Nutrition coaching can make (or break) the results you get.

When your job is to help people get in better shape, focusing on nutrition is the most important and effective step. But there’s a big problem: Most coaches don’t feel 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 coaches often fail to get their clients the results they deserve… which leads to negative feelings of confusion, stress, and career 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 guide you and point out everything you need to know in order to feel confident and qualified.

The result? You’ll be able to offer advice that you know is right. And you’ll be able to transfer that 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 (and the business you deserve.)

We’ll show you how.

A brand-new, completely updated 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 nutrition and the art of nutrition coaching.

Indeed, over 2 million people interested in fitness, health, food, and nutrition visited our website last month, enough to fill Dallas Cowboy stadium 20 times.

Yet we’re never satisfied with yesterday’s success.

Nutrition science is dynamic, and new discoveries are made daily. And that’s just on the research side. As we continue to coach (over 100,000 clients to date), we’re discovering new methods to achieve real, lasting behavior change.

As we train and certify health and fitness professionals (over 70,000 and counting), we’re also uncovering the best ways to help our Certification students learn, retain, and apply the material.

That’s why we’ve spent the better part of this year re-envisioning and redesigning the program from the ground up.

Here’s what’s new…

New “skills, practice, and action” framework

It’s one thing to read and retain information. It’s an entirely different thing to actually apply what you’re learning and start getting results right away.

This was our focus in this 4th edition: To teach you the theory and to help you practice what you’re learning, so that you can start getting life-changing results with your clients from Day One of the program.

We’ve designed the entire curriculum in a way that helps you immediately apply your new knowledge.

  • Practice-based approach. Along with reading the textbooks, watching the videos, and answering workbook questions, you’ll also get the opportunity to practice what you’re learning throughout the entire program. By the end, your nutrition coaching skills will be second nature to you.
  • Step-by-step learning process, for immediate results. You can read a chapter in the morning, and use what you learned in your afternoon coaching sessions with clients.
  • Active learning tools. From case studies, to “try it now” exercises, to your own “Learner’s Manual,” we’ll give you all the tools you need to use what you’re learning in the real world, right away.

With the Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification, you’ll learn nutrition coaching the right way.

Now, more than ever, our certification is guaranteed to give you a one-of-a-kind education experience—plus the knowledge and confidence to coach nutrition with anyone.

That’s why top organizations like this come to us for help:

Precision Nutrition is the only nutrition certification company in the world that successfully coaches real clients every single day. 

What does that mean? The Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification is NOT full of abstract theory that doesn’t work in the real world.

Instead, it’s deep knowledge that’s client-tested, scientifically proven, and constantly updated based on the data we’ve collected working with 100,000 coaching clients.

Even better, you’ll get the education you need, on your terms and on your schedule—without having to go back to school.

Precision Nutrition Certification

 

 

Why choose Precision Nutrition?

The Precision Nutrition Certification gives you everything you need to feel confident and qualified to coach nutrition with anyone.

Here are just a few reasons for why we’re the most-respected nutrition certification company in the world.

We wrote the book on nutrition coaching

The PN Level 1 Certification, 4th Edition. There’s nothing else like it anywhere.

We couldn’t find a textbook or a course that did all the things we wanted to do, nor all the things we wanted to teach others.

So we created the Precision Nutrition Certification, based on our extensive research and work with over 100,000 clients. It includes 3 unit textbooks, packaged in a beautiful box set for easy reference.

Each unit is packed with the latest research in nutrition and behavioral-change psychology, and includes practical coaching strategies, plus a step-by-step system for getting results with anyone.

Let’s get specific:

In Unit 1, you’ll learn all about the Precision Nutrition approach to coaching. After working with over 100,000 people (and counting), we’ve learned what really works for helping people change. Now we’re passing it onto you.

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)

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

It’s like getting a graduate-level education in nutrition science. Yes, you’re going to “nerd out” a bit! But don’t be intimidated. Each chapter is written in a way that’s easy to consume and comprehend.

In Unit 3 you’ll learn how to best apply 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
  • Work with all types of clients and situations
  • Build a coaching business, in-person or online

In all, you’ll get nearly 700 pages of the latest, most effective research in nutrition science and behavior-change psychology—co-authored by some of the industry’s leading authorities in health and fitness.

And that’s not even including the workbook & studyguide, case-studies, and video seminars you’ll have access to.

Like this video from Chapter 3, called “What is a great coach?”:

With this incredible learning resource we’re doing everything in our power to change the game. We’re out to educate and train a new, more effective kind of health and fitness professional.

And we’re being recognized for it by the top organizations in the world.

The PN Method has been validated clinically.

The Precision Nutrition Method, which drives our Certification and ProCoach programs, was recently validated in 3 peer-reviewed studies. This means that the system you’ll learn in the Level 1 program is truly “evidence-based.” In fact, we’re the only nutrition certification company in the world that successfully coaches real clients every single day.

Our method was recently validated in peer-reviewed studies published in Internet Interventions, the Journal of Cancer Survivorship, and Obesity Science and Practice.

Having worked with over 100,000 clients, we know our system is highly effective at helping people lose fat, build strength, and make big health improvements. Now the medical and scientific communities know it, too.

Want to achieve total confidence in your coaching skills? Get (and keep) more clients? Grow and strengthen your business? If so, the Precision Nutrition Level 2 Certification is definitely for you.

The Precision Nutrition Level 2 Certification is designed specifically for Level 1 students and graduates who realize that knowing how to coach nutrition isn’t enough.

Part master class, part graduate program, part mentorship, it’s the only course in the world that helps you master the art of coaching, meaning better results for your clients, and a better business for you.

For more on the Level 2 Certification, check out this short video. It includes interviews with superstar coaches, physicians, and trainers like Adam Feit, Dr. Spencer Nadolsky, Adam Lloyd, Mary Kate Feit, and Dr. Will Boggs:

 

 

On Wednesday, October 2nd, we’re opening registration for the next Precision Nutrition Level 2 Certification group.

Our highest rated (and most revered) program, the Precision Nutrition Level 2 Certification gives exclusive training, mentorship, and coaching practice under the guidance of the Precision Nutrition team — resulting in a more rewarding, sustainable, and profitable business for you.

By working closely with a PN Master Coach, you’ll become truly elite, capable of solving complex coaching challenges, delivering unparalleled results to every single person who comes to you for help, and standing out from the pack as a genuine client whisperer.

In addition, you’ll be ready to truly catapult your career using ProCoach, our nutrition coaching software that’s exclusively available to Precision Nutrition Certification students and grads.

What does this mean for you and your career?

Well, aside from the deep satisfaction that comes with mastering your craft, we also know that the Level 2 Certification has a real impact on coaches’ business and finances. The average Precision Nutrition Level 2 coach:

  • gets more clients than the average Level 1 coach,
  • retains more clients than the average Level 1 coach,
  • gets better results with those clients, and
  • reports more fun and enjoyment in their coaching practice.

Indeed, as amazing as our Level 1 certified coaches are, recent ProCoach data with over 100,000 clients shows that Precision Nutrition Level 2 certified coaches have 10 times(!) the retention vs. Level 1 coaches.

Welcome to the Master Class.

The Precision Nutrition Level 2 Certification, often called the Level 2 Certification Master Class, started out as our own in-house training program for newly hired Precision Nutrition coaches.

You see, as talented as some of our applicants were, almost none had the training or skills required to coach at the highest possible level, to the Precision Nutrition standard.

So we created an intensive, year-long coaching curriculum for our new recruits and paired them up with one of our Precision Nutrition Master Coaches to form a practice-based mentorship.

We were absolutely blown away by the results.

After completing the training, already great coaches were 10 times better at creating connection, navigating challenges, helping clients achieve their goals.

Why the difference?

Well, this isn’t a learning program. It’s a doing program.

As you already know: Your clients or patients don’t get healthy by learning about health. They get healthy by practicing nutrition and fitness, consistently. (And, often, under the guidance of a coach).

Likewise, you don’t become an expert coach by learning about coaching. You become an expert coach by practicing excellent coaching, consistently (under the guidance of your own coach).

In the end, after seeing what this learn by doing program did for our own coaches, we decided to make it available to coaches everywhere.

IMAGE 2

 

 

The Level 2 Certification Master Class is a year-long mentorship where you:

  • build your skills through daily coaching practice and habits that are part of a big-picture coaching curriculum,
  • complete challenging case studies that come from real client examples we’ve seen in our own coaching programs,
  • solve your clients’ or patients’ biggest problems using PN’s special tools and techniques, now proven in 3 peer-reviewed scientific studies, and
  • work directly with a Precision Nutrition coach who’ll guide you through coaching scenarios, case studies, and daily coaching habits.

In the end, through daily practice (and a mentor’s watchful eye), you’ll end up mastering PN-style client/patient-centered, practice-based coaching.

This means…

  • Being a confident, world-class nutrition coach able to work with — and deliver results for — anyone, anywhere.
  • Making a real difference, helping clients or patients make important, potentially life-saving changes to their health, fitness, and performance.
  • Feeling competent and capable every day. (No more confusing, frustrating, anxiety-inducing “I have no idea what to do here!” situations.)
  • Learning to create, market, and sustain a successful professional practice — thriving where other coaches struggle and (maybe even) fail.

That’s what completing the Level 2 Certification Master Class will do for you.

Of course, the Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification gave you a strong foundation in the science of nutrition and the art of coaching.

Now it’s time to build on this foundation with daily practice (and mentorship) that’ll help you evolve into a remarkable coach with a one-of-a-kind business: Where you help even more people, make a real difference to the clients you serve, coach with confidence, and make more money while you’re at it.

What’s new?

The PN Method validated in scientific journals

The Precision Nutrition method, which drives our Certification and ProCoach programs, was recently validated in 3 peer-reviewed studies. This means that the system you’ll learn in the Level 2 program is truly “evidence-based”.

Our method was recently validated in peer-reviewed studies published in Internet Interventions, the Journal of Cancer Survivorship, and Obesity Science and Practice.

Having worked with over 100,000 clients, we know our system is highly effective at helping people lose fat, build strength, and make big health improvements. Now the medical and scientific communities know it too.

Community of like-minded people + top experts

With our private Facebook community you’ll be able to learn alongside an extremely supportive group of over 35,000 trainers, nutritionists, physicians, sport coaches, researchers, therapists, and other healthcare professionals from all over the world.

With case studies, lessons, tips of the day, and more, being part of this community will deepen your learning, introduce you to new people, and help you level up your career.

You’ll also get daily access to the field’s most accomplished experts and coaches, including me, Brian St. Pierre, Dr. Krista Scott-Dixon, Dominic Matteo, Dr. Helen Kollias, Kate Solovieva, Adam Feit, Lisanne Thomas, and more.

As part of the Precision Nutrition Certification community you can: Ask questions. Get feedback and advice. Nerd out on all things nutrition, health, and fitness.

How to get results, Precision Nutrition style.

People ask me all the time:

“How do you guys get such incredible body transformations in your clients?”

Our clients tell us:

“It’s like you’re reading my mind! How did you know what was holding me back from my goals?”

We just smile and keep quietly innovating. While getting results like this:

Until now, we’ve kept most of the dynamic, day-to-day coaching methods we use with Equinox, Nike, and Titleist, a secret.

Only Precision Nutrition Level 2 Certification Master Class students are given behind-the-scenes access to the same training and mentoring program we use to onboard the full-time coaches we hire.

Just one caveat:

This program isn’t for everyone.

  • You need to care about your coaching practice and your client’ results, and want to make those better.
  • You need to show up ready to learn, grow, and to be guided (and sometimes, challenged).
  • You need to be willing to commit time and energy to improving your skills.

Only one issue:
Last year, spots sold out in under an hour.

Because the Master Class offers personal attention to every student, we can only accept a small percentage of the people who want to work with us. Only the most eager and serious get in.

So with over 70,000 Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification students and grads, and only a few spots available for the next class, we’re preparing for the same thing to happen again: Spots will sell out. And they will sell out fast.

That’s why if you’re interested in being a part of this exclusive group, I recommend that you join the Level 2 Certification Master Class VIP list.

Add your name to the Master Class VIP list and you’ll get the chance to register 24 hours before everyone else. Plus, you’ll get a huge discount on the program.

It’s our way of rewarding the people who are ready to get started and want to gain true mastery in their nutrition and fitness coaching practice.

If you’re ready, let’s change the game.

After coaching over 100,000 clients and developing some of the best pros in the nutrition coaching field, I’m absolutely certain that this Master Class is a game changer.

Develop your own practice and skills.

Help every single person who walks in your door.

Build your business.

And become a leader who changes the entire field of health and fitness.

Glen and Katrina spent the past 12 months transforming their eating habits, health, bodies, and lives with personal help from a PN coach. And now? They’re our latest Grand Prize winners. See how we surprised them with $25,000 each, and meet the rest of our July 2019 Precision Nutrition Coaching winners.

++++

Every six months, in our Precision Nutrition Coaching program, we give away more than $125,000 to the men and women who have the most incredible, inspiring body transformations.

Yep, that’s more than $250,000 a year.

And today, you’ll meet our latest amazing winners.

These folks started working with us in July 2018 and—over the course of the past year—completely transformed how they eat, move, look, and feel.

They lost weight, gained strength, boosted their health, and inspired their friends and families.

What’s more, they did all of this without extreme diets or crazy workout routines. There were no meal plans or off-limit foods. No unbreakable rules. No deprivation. And perhaps best of all, no guilt.

Each person simply committed to making a change, stayed consistent, and used the accountability and support of one of our dedicated coaches.

$25,000 Grand Prize Winner: Katrina

Lost 41 lbs and 38 total inches!

Age: 44 years
Weight Lost: 41 lbs (from 170 lbs to 129 lbs)
Total Inches Lost: 38 inches (from 225 inches to 187 inches)

Katrina McKinney loved to run.

She started fifteen years ago, tackling her first marathon in 2008.

She loved logging the miles, loved the community, and loved the fact that running had helped her go from her heaviest adult weight to her lightest.

But she couldn’t sustain it.

Running 30 or 40 miles a week wasn’t always compatible with her busy work schedule, and inconsistency with that mileage opened the door to injury.

Also, while she knew a lot about fitness and nutrition, she couldn’t consistently apply her knowledge. It was tempting to look for the easy fix, like the latest supplement or the hot new trendy diet.

“I was always trying something,” Katrina says.

But in the end, Katrina’s nutrition and fitness efforts always felt random.

No matter what she did or what progress she made, she always seemed to return to the same old condition—tired, discouraged, and overweight.

Then she got married, and while her life got better, her fitness got worse.

After work, it was all too tempting to discuss the day with her husband, Keith, over a bottle of wine or an extra-large portion of their evening meal. She started skipping workouts and missing runs. Over time, those extra calories added up.

Finally, both Katrina and Keith reached a breaking point: They knew they had to do better.

After all, if they were struggling with health and fitness now, in early middle age, what would happen later?

“I wanted to set us up for a healthy future.”

Enter Precision Nutrition. Taking a leap of faith and investing in their long-term health, Katrina and Keith signed up for coaching—together.

It wasn’t long before their rituals began to change. Instead of bonding over a beer, they’d start the day with a gym date and close it with a conversation about that week’s nutrition habit or the most recent lesson in the program.

This mutual encouragement proved crucial to their success.

“Even though our experience was different, we were always there to support each other. It’s like we were on the same train, even if we sometimes rode in different cars.”

The kids also came along for the ride. “They weren’t always giddy about eating so many veggies,” Katrina admits. But they were game to try. “The youngest happens to love licorice. I’ll never forget her smile when I showed her that fennel smells and tastes like her favorite candy!”

It was that mindful approach to cooking, eating, exercise, and sleep that made the biggest difference to Katrina. Day after day, she made small, consistent efforts. She stopped thinking in terms of depriving herself. Instead, she took care of herself.

The number on the scale seemed to take care of itself, too.

For Katrina, watching her weight drop was a thrill. Better yet was the experience of flying through the hills on a long trail run, and feeling as energetic after the race as before it.

Best of all was her newfound ability to listen to herself, to trust her inner voice.

For example, that inner voice prompted Katrina to quit a 12-hour challenge race after seven hours in the heat and torrential rain. Instead of pushing herself beyond her limits, or just sticking it out to drink beer and eat junk food, she opted to leave–and enjoy a cozy supper with Keith.

Other times, the inner voice gave Katrina the encouragement she needed to decline that extra drink at a social event so she could prioritize sleep.

Often, Katrina’s inner voice nudged her to get outside and connect with nature. To listen to the babble of the stream, to feel the stones under her feet.

These days, people ask Katrina what she’s been doing to get so healthy and happy.

“Honestly, it isn’t hard,” she says. It’s really about slowing down, listening, making one small positive choice, and then another.

“Focus on the process instead of on outcomes. What you do to and with your body matters,” she says.

“Most of all, remember that you’re worth it.”

$25,000 Grand Prize Winner: Glen

Lost 52 lbs and 33 total inches!

Age: 57 years
Weight Lost: 52 lbs (from 243 lbs to 191 lbs)
Total Inches Lost: 33 inches (from 262 inches to 229 inches)

An avid rower, Glen Schultz knew it may be time for a change the day he tried to get in the racing shell—and wouldn’t fit.

Though active, Glen, like many of us, had arrived at middle age carrying some extra baggage around his middle.

He couldn’t squeeze into his suits, either. Invited to a wedding, he had to make a trip to the Goodwill store to find something formal to wear.

But these were just irritations. Annoying, yes, but also funny. It was the confrontations with mortality that Glen found harder to shrug off.

First, his wife’s mother passed away. Then, he lost his own mother. A former classmate died of a stroke.

And he found himself dwelling on the reality that in his mid-50s, he had fewer years ahead of him than behind. With a loving wife and two teenage boys to raise, he didn’t feel ready to cut those years even shorter.

His medical checkup was the final straw.

“You’re pre-diabetic,” his doctor told him, and then mentioned something about “medications.” That’s when Glen decided to take control of his health.

He signed up for Precision Nutrition Coaching, began to follow the habits and workouts, and bit by bit his mindset and waistline both started to change.

“In the past, I’d never really thought about how I eat,” he says.

Glen knew all about what he should eat, and why. But it turned out that slowing down, taking time, and reflecting on his choices made all the difference.

“Instead of going for that midnight ice cream, I’d write down how I was feeling.”

Afterwards, he might still hit the freezer for a snack, but he took a smaller portion and enjoyed it more.

Midway through his year of coaching he went for another checkup. This time, his blood work came back clear. He wasn’t pre-diabetic any more. And his GP had to cancel an upcoming appointment with a cardiologist.

Glen didn’t need it. His heart was in great shape.

That bin of “too small” clothes at the back of his closet? Now Glen found himself raiding it for something to wear.

In fact, he had to buy a new bin for the “too big” clothes.

The first item he tossed: that Goodwill suit he’d had to buy for the wedding a few months earlier.

Eventually, it got to the point where all his clothes were too big.

“I think I’ll have a ceremonial bonfire,” he laughs.

These days, Glen is rowing again. He bikes to work sometimes, and takes long walks on the weekends. His wife, who supported him from the start, has joined the coaching program herself, so they share their successes and challenges.

Glen’s old pattern was to do things the way he’d always done them and to fix every problem himself. To repair the broken bathtub, even though he didn’t know anything about fiberglass. To wear his hair the way he’d always worn it, even if it went against his natural part.

But his year of coaching has taught him the value of accepting help from the pros.

It turns out that bathtub repair guys really know how to work with fiberglass, barbers really understand hair, and PN coaches really know how to guide people towards greater fitness and health.

“You could wander in the vastness of what’s out there on the internet forever and get lost. Or you could ignore the flotsam and jetsam and get real help,” Glen says.

Also, you don’t need to be Michael Jordan or Lebron James to do this program.

“I can’t overstate it. This works for regular people. It really works.”

Marie

$10,000 women’s Winner:

Age: 39 years

Weight Lost: 36 lbs (167 lbs to 131 lbs)

Total inches lost: 29″ (217″ to 188″)

As a perfectionist, if I wasn’t able to do everything perfectly, to a T, I would often fall into a ‘why bother’ mindset. What I love about PN is that it is made for ‘real-life,’ ‘normal’ people! At times it is almost too easy, but that is the beauty of it! If you just follow along, one step at a time, just trying to be ‘one percent better every day,’ you’ll see amazing, lasting, and sustainable results!

– Marie

Laurie

$10,000 women’s Winner:

Age: 54 years

Weight Lost: 38 lbs (195 lbs to 157 lbs)

Total inches lost: 24″ (235″ to 211″)

I was looking for a program that would lead to positive, life-long, sustainable changes for my health and well-being. PN Coaching put me in control of my journey by providing thorough, well-researched information; lots of helpful advice; and supportive, empathetic, insightful coaching (much appreciated!). By helping me tailor my own program, I was choosing something meaningful and doable for me. I found that small changes done consistently led to amazing results.

– Laurie

Kathleen

$2,500 women’s Winner:

Age: 50 years

Weight Lost: 21 lbs (143 lbs to 122 lbs)

Total inches lost: 20″ (215″ to 195″)

As an avowed do-it-yourselfer, I spent a year studying the PN website and trying to follow the guidance on my own. I made some progress, but what a difference a year of PN Coaching made! Not only did I celebrate my 50th birthday leaner, healthier, and more confident than I had in decades, I got there in a way that felt natural, sustainable and easier than I ever imagined.

– Kathleen

Marilyn

$2,500 women’s Winner:

Age: 70 years

Weight Lost: 51 lbs (217 lbs to 166 lbs)

Total inches lost: 56″ (259″ to 203″)

I joined PN hoping to lose weight, and I did. A wonderful, unexpected bonus was that, along the way, I found my true, authentic self, and discovered how to align my life with my values. Thank you for giving me the calm and peace I need!

– Marilyn

Mia

$2,500 women’s Winner:

Age: 37 years

Weight Lost: 21 lbs (168 lbs to 147 lbs)

Total inches lost: 10″ (216″ to 206″)

I made the commitment to PN to regain my health, happiness, and confidence—but most importantly to establish myself as a top priority again. My transformation has been both challenging and exciting, but through PN I have formed and reinforced healthy habits that will support my continued consistency. BOOM!!

– Mia

Donna

$2,500 women’s Winner:

Age: 61 years

Weight Lost: 26 lbs (145 lbs to 119 lbs)

Total inches lost: 20″ (211″ to 191″)

Precision Nutrition is the “magic pill” I’ve been looking for most of my adult life. I’ve tried everything, but never experienced this success, which I achieved even while dealing with a new autoimmune inflammatory diagnosis that causes pain and a treatment that causes weight gain. It’s hard to believe that just over a year ago I could hardly walk, and although it has been an uphill climb it’s been worth every step. The daily inspiration, encouragement, and guidance I received from PN has touched every area of my life. I’m so very thankful to finally be healthy and fit enough to enjoy my retirement years (hopefully soon) and my grandchildren!

– Donna

Sarah

$1,000 women’s Winner:

Age: 24 years

Weight Lost: 45 lbs (180 lbs to 135 lbs)

Total inches lost: 33″ (229″ to 196″)

I feel physically, mentally, and emotionally free. I’ve lost pounds and inches, and I gained a confident, happier, energetic lifestyle with a sense of purpose. By prioritizing my health, I am able to have the fullness of a life rooted in unshakable faith: in myself, in my relationships, and in my daily choices.

– Sarah

Joanne

$1,000 women’s Winner:

I feel reenergized, stronger than I’ve ever been, living a much more active and fulfilling life, and dedicated to always taking care of myself from now on, even when ‘life happens.’ PN has been there, week after week, encouraging, supporting, and providing solid information as I’ve made changes both inside and out. PN has sparked a real joy in me in learning again. I know now it is never, ever too late!

Age: 40 years

Weight Lost: 20 lbs (125 lbs to 105 lbs)

Total inches lost: 17″ (198″ to 181″)

Having been a lifelong yoyo dieter, PN was going to be a last-ditch effort to get my eating under control and to make lasting changes. While it wasn’t all smooth sailing, I feel that PN taught me the fundamental skills and gave me the mindset to finally find balance in my life, stop obsessing over food, and get into the best shape of my life! Through PN’s lessons and the support of my coach, Denise, I developed the necessary tools to lead a healthy, balanced life.

$1,000 women’s Winner:

Age: 32 years

Weight Lost: 27 lbs (162 lbs to 135 lbs)

Total inches lost: 29″ (226″ to 197″)

PN Coaching has been so much more than a physical transformation, it’s been a journey that’s transformed my mental capacity to understand my real strengths. I am convinced that small incremental changes over time make a big difference. I’m taking with me skills to make this a lifetime lifestyle change, and the motivation and desire to keep learning and continue to grow.

– Yami

Cheryl

$1,000 women’s Winner:

Age: 56 years

Weight Lost: 38 lbs (212 lbs to 174 lbs)

Total inches lost: 24″ (241″ to 217″)

PN has given me the tools to understand that change comes from the inside and works its way out. The journey is ongoing, but instead of fear, the foundation is now being built on pride, love and compassion.

– Cheryl

Michelle

$1,000 women’s Winner:

Age: 39 years

Weight Lost: 14 lbs (145 lbs to 131 lbs)

Total inches lost: 19″ (216″ to 197″)

I started out with PN desperate to lose weight. But at the end of this, what has really changed my life is what I have gained—healthy, sustainable habits; workouts that have challenged me and made me stronger; and unshakable confidence in my body and all the amazing things it can do. PN has helped me shift my entire way of thinking, and while I’m happy with my physical transformation, what I am really so grateful for are all the changes on the inside.

– Michelle

Sabrina

$1,000 women’s Winner:

Age: 46 years

Weight Lost: 57 lbs (252 lbs to 195 lbs)

Total inches lost: 28″ (278″ to 250″)

What has impacted me the most in PN is learning the difference between hunger and eating for boredom or emotions. PN has given me the tools to be aware of what my body needs to be healthy and maintain that health for the rest of my life.

– Sabrina

Kelly

$1,000 women’s Winner:

Age: 54 years

Weight Lost: 43 lbs (181 lbs to 138 lbs)

Total inches lost: 43″ (237″ to 194″)

I’ve had an amazing year with PN Coaching. I lost weight, became physically stronger, and dug deep into the issues that had held me back from being the fit person I’d always wanted to be.

– Kelly

Meet our other Men’s winners:

Gavin

$10,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 34 years

Weight Lost: 27 lbs (181 lbs to 154 lbs)

Total inches lost: 20″ (230″ to 210″)

I joined PN to transform my body. Not only did they deliver on that, but they reignited my love of great food and cooking!

– Gavin

Rich

$10,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 59 years

Weight Lost: 39 lbs (213 lbs to 174 lbs)

Total inches lost: 22″ (242″ to 220″)

I joined PN to support my wife, with few expectations of my own. Along the way I admitted to myself that my hesitation to join had to do more with my own self-doubt and history. Previously, I had not kept up new eating habits, saw food as a reward, and hoped exercise would overcome bad eating habits. PN really helped me become more aware of my body’s signals and become more mindful of how these affect me, eventually leading to a physician- and wife-approved healthier me!

– Rich

Paddy

$2,500 men’s Winner:

Age: 44 years

Weight Lost: 64 lbs (225 lbs to 161 lbs)

Total inches lost: 34″ (248″ to 214″)

Over the past year I feel I’ve taken back control of body. I’ve learned to listen to my body to understand when I need rest and what food I need. The best thing over the past year: I’m pretty much pain-free.

– Paddy

Scott

$2,500 men’s Winner:

Age: 50 years

Weight Lost: 18 lbs (248 lbs to 230 lbs)

Total inches lost: 4″ (264″ to 260″)

PN Coaching was the catalyst for me to change my life and the direction it was heading. Knowing someone was there who ‘had my back’ allowed me to become accountable to myself and it brought out parts of me I had forgotten were there. Truly a life changing program physically, mentally and spiritually!

– Scott

Raj

$2,500 men’s Winner:

Age: 41 years

Weight Lost: 29 lbs (163 lbs to 134 lbs)

Total inches lost: 20″ (214″ to 194″)

The Precision Nutrition program does a stellar job of providing tools (presenting habits such as “Make Time,” “Eat to 80% Full,” and “Plan to eat Whole Foods”) through which you can restructure and reshape how you approach nutrition and fitness in your life. It enables a client to drive personal growth via INCREMENTAL change, which I’ve learned is the best way to achieve lasting change. Externally, I’ve lost 40+ pounds in the past 18 months, about 30 of that in the past year alone. Over the same timeframe, I’ve fundamentally changed my identity from someone who was just “getting older” to someone who clearly prioritizes nutrition and fitness and is a challenge-seeking leader.

– Raj

Wade

$2,500 men’s Winner:

Age: 47 years

Weight Lost: 26 lbs (190 lbs to 164 lbs)

Total inches lost: 21″ (242″ to 221″)

For me the PN Journey was all about my ‘inner game.’ I learned the outer, physical changes were not possible until I changed my inner-self. PN Coaching and specifically Coach Scott helped me recognize that my beliefs, old scripts, and the story I was telling myself were no longer serving me, and in fact weren’t even mine or true to begin with. As soon as I was able to analyze, question, and change them, everything started to change for the better. I felt a shift, improvement, or a ‘release’ in myself internally. With that, the external changes began to flow easily in all areas of my life.

– Wade

Jim

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 48 years

Weight Lost: 33 lbs (201 lbs to 168 lbs)

Total inches lost: 21″ (241″ to 220″)

Simply put, Precision Nutrition changed my relationship with food to a much healthier and sustainable one. By doing this, the changes in my life have gone beyond the basic measures of weight and girth. I feel more energized and more in control overall, and I even set a new personal best on a recent half marathon, by 16 minutes.

– Jim

Nathan

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 35 years

Weight Lost: 28 lbs (202 lbs to 174 lbs)

Total inches lost: 17″ (238″ to 221″)

Prior to PN, I didn’t really feel comfortable in my own skin. My body had changed over the past few years in ways I wasn’t happy with, and I felt helpless. However, as the year progressed, PN helped me build up habits and take control of my physical and mental health. Now I take the time each week to plan and prep for fun new recipes, and I get excited for my daily workouts, finding new ways to grow and challenge myself.

– Nathan

Ben

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 26 years

Weight Lost: 15 lbs (197 lbs to 182 lbs)

Total inches lost: 22″ (243″ to 221″)

My journey with PN has been incredible. I was challenged in ways I didn’t expect, and was taught the core skills I can use to stay healthy for the rest of my life. Getting fit is simply a decision: Once you make it, PN has you covered for the rest.

– Ben

Mike

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 38 years

Weight Lost: 28 lbs (213 lbs to 185 lbs)

Total inches lost: 15″ (248″ to 233″)

Precision Nutrition has been an amazing experience for me. The program has equipped me with straightforward tools and techniques that I can use forever to maintain long-lasting health. I couldn’t be happier with results.

– Mike

Charles

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 39 years

Weight Lost: 29 lbs (179 lbs to 150 lbs)

Total inches lost: 29″ (229″ to 200″)

Having been physically active for most of my life with martial arts, sports, and weight training, I hit a roadblock when I injured my back in my late 20s and had to stay in bed for nine months. Since then, I have been struggling with back pain, disk problems, etc., and I thought I was doomed to recurring injuries every few months. I thought I knew what I was doing because of my background in fitness, but PN has taught me things I never learned in all my years of training. I have been injury-free for the past eight months, and I feel better than I have in years! With my new priceless PN habits, I really have no words to say with how thankful I am! PN truly helped me change my mindset, my body, and the way I see life and myself in this world. I feel good, and I feel that I am more conscious and mindful of everything. Thank you, PN.

– Charles

Ashwin

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 31 years

Weight Lost: 26 lbs (174 lbs to 148 lbs)

Total inches lost: 8″ (225″ to 217″)

The biggest impact that PN Coaching has had on me is that I’ve BECOME that person who sees himself as someone who trains consistently, eats well most of the time, and takes good care of himself every day. Even though I used to train before and sort of knew the optimal food choices to make, there was always a gap between what I knew and what I ended up doing. PN has helped me develop the skillset required to effectively bridge this gap, and for that I’m forever grateful.

– Ashwin

James

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 54 years

Weight Lost: 32 lbs (221 lbs to 189 lbs)

Total inches lost: 22″ (259″ to 237″)

When I began with PN Coaching, I thought it was just a one-year program. It’s not; it’s a lifetime of healthy habits. PN Coaching taught me how to be engaged through the lessons and workouts, and to focus on the habits that helped me achieve the greatest reward: better health. This is my life now, and I have never felt mentally, physically, and emotionally healthier than I am right now. I am proud of what I have accomplished with the help of Coach Jonathan and the PN Team.

– James

John

$1,000 men’s Winner:

Age: 44 years

Weight Lost: 37 lbs (203 lbs to 166 lbs)

Total inches lost: 26″ (247″ to 221″)

What has really changed for me in the course of this program is what has eluded me with every previous effort to finally ‘get in shape’: a sustainable lifestyle shift. The weight has come off, I’m stronger, healthier and more energetic, but more importantly, for the first time in my adult life, I’m confident that I can maintain it. It’s not one big thing, it’s everything: My entire lifestyle has changed over the course of a year.

– John

Of course, if you’re interested in working toward a body or health transformation of your own, consider joining our next Precision Nutrition Coaching group. We’re opening up a few spots in the coming weeks.

Want to transform your body and health?

As you probably know, you won’t overhaul your body this dramatically by just logging time on a treadmill or reading health tips on Twitter. 

Awesome, lasting, wow-what-happened-to-you transformations usually require personal attention from an expert coach.

And here’s the good news: Precision Nutrition Coaching will be accepting new clients very soon, at our lowest, most accessible price ever.

If you’re interested and want to find out more, I’d encourage you to join our presale list.

Being on the presale list gives you two special advantages.

  • You’ll pay less than everyone else. At Precision Nutrition we like to reward the most interested and motivated people because they always make the best clients. Join the presale list and you’ll save up to 54% off the general public price, which is the lowest price we’ve ever offered.
  • You’re more likely to get a spot. To give clients the personal care and attention they deserve, we only open up the program twice a year. Last time we opened registration, we sold out within minutes. By joining the presale list you’ll get the opportunity to register 24 hours before everyone else, increasing your chances of getting in.

[Note: If your health and fitness are already sorted out, but you’re interested in helping others, check out our Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification program].

If you’re ready to change your body, and your life, with help from the world’s best coaches, this is your chance.

The post Precision Nutrition Coaching Grand Prize Winners: July 2019. We just surprised our latest winners with more than $125,000 in prizes! appeared first on Precision Nutrition.

Powered by WPeMatico

Just one year ago, these 20 men were inspired to make a change. They wanted to take control of their health and fitness. To eat healthier, move better, and get stronger. And that’s exactly what they did.

Now, after 12 months of Precision Nutrition Coaching, they’ve transformed their health, bodies, and lives more than they ever thought possible. 

They also have the chance to win part of the $125,000 in prize money we’ve committed to the latest round of top clients. Scroll through these amazing photos and vote for the finalist whose transformation impresses you most.

Every year in Precision Nutrition Coaching, we help men and women all over the world dramatically improve their eating habits, exercise routine, and lifestyle.

They lose weight, gain strength, and completely transform their bodies, health, and fitness.

We also give them a big, motivating goal to shoot for: $250,000 in cash prizes.

Consider it an antidote to the “you must suffer and feel guilty to get in shape” message you typically get from the fitness industry.

See, guys come to us wanting big changes:

  • They want to lose weight, build muscle, and shed body fat.
  • They want to feel physically and mentally strong.
  • They want to make healthier food choices, consistently.
  • They want to stop worrying about their health.
  • They want to start doing all the awesome things they previously wanted to do but thought they couldn’t.

Above all, they want to become the fittest, strongest, healthiest versions of themselves.

In our experience, big, inspiring, life-changing goals like these are a whole lot easier to achieve when there’s a huge bonus at stake.

So, every six months, we divvy up a big pot of prize money for the best transformations among our male and female clients.

For the current group—which started in July 2018 and is wrapping up now—we’ve committed $125,000.

And right now, we need your help to choose our Men’s Grand Prize winner.

Help choose our Men’s Grand Prize winner (Top prize = $25,000)

The guys below started their Precision Nutrition Coaching journey in all shapes and sizes, and they hail from all parts of the globe. They’re a diverse group with one thing in common: They finally have the bodies and health they’ve wanted for a long time, and they’re confident they’ll stay this way for good.

How’d they do it?

No crash diets. No Biggest Loser-type bootcamps. And no full-time chefs.

Just research-based nutrition and lifestyle habits practiced daily with personalized help from our expert coaches.

Confirm your choice for the Men’s $25,000 Grand Prize winner

When confirming your vote, it’s important to remember that we’re not rewarding the best bodies per se. We’re rewarding the most incredible transformations.

In Precision Nutrition Coaching, we certainly don’t expect folks to start off looking like fitness models. Heck, we don’t even expect folks to end up looking like fitness models.

We’re looking for winners who’ve made the most dramatic changes in their own bodies, starting from wherever they were at the beginning.

That’s because our coaching is for men and women of all shapes and sizes. And your vote should reflect who you think achieved the most dramatic changes over the last 12 months.

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post’s poll.

Want to transform your body just like these men did?

Most people know that regular movement, eating well, sleep, and stress management are important for looking and feeling better. Yet they need help applying that knowledge in the context of their busy, sometimes stressful lives.

Over the past 15 years, we’ve used the Precision Nutrition Coaching method to help over 100,000 clients lose fat, get stronger, and improve their health… for the long-term… no matter what challenges they’re dealing with.

It’s also why we work with health, fitness, and wellness professionals (through our Level 1 and Level 2 Certification programs) to teach them how to coach their own clients through the same challenges.

Interested in Precision Nutrition Coaching? Join the presale list; you’ll save up to 54% and secure a spot 24 hours early.

We’ll be opening up spots in our next Precision Nutrition Coaching on Wednesday, July 17th, 2019.

If you’re interested in coaching and want to find out more, I’d encourage you to join our presale list below. Being on the list gives you two special advantages.

  • They want to make healthier food choices, consistently.
  • They want to feel at ease, instead of stressed out, around food.
  • They want to feel confident and comfortable in their own skin.
  • They want to start doing all the awesome things they’ve always wanted to do, but thought they couldn’t.

Above all, they want to become the fittest, strongest, healthiest versions of themselves.

In our experience, big, inspiring, life-changing goals like these are a whole lot easier to achieve when there’s a huge bonus up for grabs.

So, every six months, we divvy up a big pot of prize money for the best transformations among our male and female clients.

For the current group—which started in July 2018 and is wrapping up now—we’ve once again committed $125,000.

And right now, we need your help to choose our Women’s Grand Prize winner.

Help choose our Women’s Grand Prize winner (Top prize = $25,000)

The women below started their Precision Nutrition Coaching journey in all shapes and sizes.

They’re a diverse group with one important thing in common: They finally achieved the bodies and health they’ve wanted for a long time, and they’re confident they’ll stay this way for good.

How’d they do it?

No crash diets. No Biggest Loser-type bootcamps. And no full-time chefs.

Just research-based nutrition and lifestyle habits practiced daily with personalized help from our expert coaches.

Confirm your choice for the Women’s $25,000 Grand Prize winner

When confirming your vote, it’s important to remember that we’re not rewarding the best bodies per se. We’re rewarding the most incredible transformations.

In Precision Nutrition Coaching, we certainly don’t expect folks to start off looking like fitness models. Heck, we don’t even expect folks to end up looking like fitness models.

We’re looking for winners who’ve made the most dramatic changes in their own bodies, starting from wherever they were at the beginning.

That’s because our coaching is for men and women of all shapes and sizes. And your vote should reflect who you think achieved the most dramatic changes over the last 12 months.

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post’s poll.

Want to transform your body like these women did?

Most people know that regular movement, eating well, sleep, and stress management are important for getting the body and health they want. Yet they need help applying that knowledge in the context of their busy, sometimes stressful lives.

Over the past 15 years, we’ve used the Precision Nutrition Coaching method to help over 100,000 clients lose fat, get stronger, and improve their health… for the long-term… no matter what challenges they’re dealing with.

It’s also why we work with health, fitness, and wellness professionals (through our Level 1 and Level 2 Certification programs) to teach them how to coach their own clients through the same challenges.

Interested in Precision Nutrition Coaching? Join the presale list; you’ll save up to 54% and secure a spot 24 hours early.

We’ll be opening up spots in our next Precision Nutrition Coaching on Wednesday, July 17th, 2019.

If you’re interested in coaching and want to find out more, I’d encourage you to join our presale list below. Being on the list gives you two special advantages.

  • You’ll pay less than everyone else. At Precision Nutrition we like to reward the most interested and motivated people because they always make the best clients. Join the presale list and you’ll save up to 54% off the general public price, which is the lowest price we’ve ever offered.
  • You’re more likely to get a spot. To give clients the personal care and attention they deserve, we only open up the program twice a year. Last time we opened registration, we sold out within minutes. By joining the presale list you’ll get the opportunity to register 24 hours before everyone else, increasing your chances of getting in.

If you’re ready to change your body, and your life, with help from the world’s best coaches, this is your chance.

[Note: If your health and fitness are already sorted out, but you’re interested in helping others, check out our Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification program].

Feeling overworked and under-appreciated? Having trouble staying consistent with nutrition and fitness because of life’s demands? Wondering if you’ll ever be able to find time to achieve the body and health you want? This article is for you.

Putting others’ needs before your own? For lots of women, it’s an everyday reality.

Whether you’re a high-powered professional, a mother, a caregiver, a partner, a worker, a daughter, a friend, or all of the above and more….

….if you’re a woman, you’re asked to do a lot.

Many of us spend our days putting out fires, handling to-do lists, wiping little noses, meeting deadlines, and making sure other people are fed, safe, and happy.

Here’s the thing…

We’ve gotten to know a lot of women through our Precision Nutrition Coaching program. And we’ve learned that most of them enjoy — and thrive on — that impossible list above.

They like rising to the challenge of supporting others and getting stuff done.

That is, until their energy runs out and they realize they don’t have any left over for themselves.

And slowly, after months or years of putting other people first, multi-tasking, and wrangling that epic to-do list:

  • They’re drained mentally and emotionally.
  • The time they used to invest in self-care has disappeared.
  • The clothes that used to fit… feel a little (or a lot) tighter.
  • The sugar and junk food cravings seem much stronger.
  • The exercise classes/workouts are postponed, then canceled.
  • The bathroom mirror and scale are avoided. (Along with the bed.)
  • The stress of yo-yo dieting starts up again.

With putting so much time into caring for others, and juggling all their responsibilities, women end up neglecting themselves.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

You can feel healthy, fit, and good in your own skin.

You can regain control of your schedule and your body.

You can overcome emotional eating and cravings.

You can show love and appreciation to others while still taking care of yourself.

We’ll show you how.

In this article, you’ll learn:

  • The two biggest obstacles in many women’s way when it comes to getting healthy and staying in shape.
  • How to overcome these obstacles to get the body — and life — you want.

Oh sure, you think.

Maybe some women might find this helpful.

But my life is different. My body is different.

That’s exactly what tens of thousands of other women thought before they started Precision Nutrition Coaching.

They also felt frustrated, lost, and confused, struggling to manage their eating, health, and bodies. They knew they wanted to feel better, and they were trying hard, but they weren’t sure how to make it all work.

That was them before they started.

And here’s how they ended up… after a year of simple, do-able, progressive habits. The difference is astounding. Check out this short video:

Meet some of the people whose bodies — and lives — have been changed by Precision Nutrition Coaching.

 

 

At one point, many of these women felt like you do right now. But they discovered…

The kind of change you want is possible.

No matter where you’re starting.

No matter how you’re feeling right now.

No matter how much stuff is on your plate.

It’s possible.

Here’s what women are often wishing for when they start working with us, and some ways you can get started right now.

Wish #1:
“Help me have a better relationship with food.”

At some point in their lives, many women struggle with overeating and emotional eating. We love our wine, chocolate, sugar, or whatever our “I-deserve-this” or “I-need-a-freaking-break” treats are… but they don’t always love us back.

Once the “food rush” wears off, we’re left with the very same stress and problems we started with — plus now we feel guilty, ashamed, and maybe even out of control.

The cycle often looks like this.

  • Feel stressed, anxious, upset, etc.
  • Overeat.
  • Feel guilty and ashamed for overeating.
  • Feel more stressed, anxious, upset, etc.
  • Vow to “do better”.
  • White-knuckle a new diet, and/or make rigid “rules”.
  • Feel stressed, anxious, upset, etc.
  • Overeat.
  • Repeat the cycle.

(Believe me, I’ve been there.)

Solution: “Break the chain” exercise.

Simply notice, observe, and record what happened leading up to any food cravings, emotional eating, overeating, and/or any other times that feel “out of control” with food and eating.

Because here’s a secret:

Those feelings and behaviors didn’t come out of nowhere. They aren’t random. Something led to them.

Now you get to be a detective and figure out all the links in the chain.

To help you put this exercise into practice, download a printable version of our Break the Chain exercise, or think through the exercise below.

1. Start with any recent food or eating-related episode that troubled you. (For instance, eating too much, eating foods you didn’t want, feeling out of control, etc.).

2. Write down all the stuff that was happening around you just before that episode happened.

For instance:

  • Where were you?
  • What were you doing?
  • What were you thinking?
  • What were you feeling?
  • Who was with you?

3. Now see if you can go back even further.

Maybe a few hours. Once again:

  • Where were you?
  • What were you doing?
  • What were you thinking?
  • What were you feeling?
  • Who was with you?

Try to capture as much detail as possible.

4. Now look at your data. Are there any patterns?

If you don’t see any connections right away, no worries.

Try this exercise a few times, and then start looking for links between what was happening in the days or hours before you had a serious food craving or emotional eating episode.

5. If and when you find patterns, be curious about them.

Don’t worry about fixing them right away. Just notice them.

“Hm, that’s interesting. Every time my mom calls me, afterward I want to hit the chocolate.”

“You know, I actually feel fine most of the month, but the week before my period hits — watch out.”

“It’s been a long, stressful week at work. Give me that wine before I stab someone.”

6. You might notice solutions right away.

“OK, I’m going to go for a workout after I talk to mom, to get some of that energy out.”

“I’m going to mark my PMS days on the calendar so I know about them in advance.”

“I’m going to walk home on Fridays, to unwind.”

Or you might not notice solutions. You might feel stuck at step #5, noticing the patterns but not sure how to change.

Either way, that’s OK.

The important thing is: Now you’re aware of what’s happening.

(Reminder: you can download a printable version of our Break the Chain worksheet here. Use it to practice working through the above steps.)

Wish #2:
“Help me be consistent with my diet, exercise, or healthy lifestyle habits.”

If you’re like most women, you’ve probably tried at least some stuff to get and stay in shape.

Here’s what most women have tried before getting results with us:

  • Weight Watchers
  • MyFitnessPal and other calorie counters
  • Jenny Craig and Curves
  • Crossfit and other group workouts
  • Popular diets like Paleo, juice fasts, cleanses, and low-carb
  • Workout books and magazine articles

Of course, these aren’t “bad” options. They end up working for some people.

But most folks tell us they have a hard time staying consistent. They mean well, and work hard, but struggle to stay on track.

In part, this is because other plans don’t account for your life.

They don’t offer meaningful, step-by-step change that you can actually do in your real life. You know, the real life with a job and kids and a commute and going to school and all that stuff. The one that actual human people have.

And, in part, most other plans don’t offer support, care, and accountability like coaching does.

Solution #1:
Make yourself accountable to a program… that really works.

Ideally, you want a program that:

  • Focuses on all the things that are right with you, and all the strengths and skills you already have.
  • Gives you proven solutions that start to work right now.
  • You can customize to your lifestyle (so you can stay consistent and do it even when you’re busy).
  • You actually enjoy doing (and isn’t just another chore).
  • Makes you feel positive, hopeful, and supported all the way through.
  • Lasts. Like, for life.
  • Gives you a big goal to shoot for, if you want.

On that last point, some folks like big goals.

That’s why we give away $250,000 every year in Precision Nutrition Coaching.

Winning the money isn’t the point. It’s just something extra to push for. Something to look forward to. (That is, if you’re a goal kinda person. If you’re not, that’s cool too.)

Rachel lost 31 pounds in PN Coaching; we surprised her with $25,000.

So how do you know if a certain program will help keep you accountable?

After 15 years in the fitness industry, and over 100,000 clients , here’s what we’ve found works best:

  • Having a plan that provides both structure and flexibility.
  • The ability to customize the plan based on your skill levels, goals, and how much time you have available. 
  • Getting a daily reminder to practice whichever nutrition, exercise, or lifestyle habit you’re currently working on.
  • Measuring your progress at regular intervals.

That’s what helped our clients achieve results like this:




Solution #2:
Make yourself accountable to a person… who really cares.

As we like to say here at Precision Nutrition, nothing worth doing can be done alone.

Social support — whether that’s a friend, a workout partner, your spouse, your kid, your dog, a co-worker who walks with you at lunch, a personal trainer at your local gym, whatever — is crucial.

Don’t try to do this all alone.

Independence is great, but for a project like this, you need a team and a tribe of like-minded people helping and supporting you.

Social support plus accountability and lots of caring coaching is our specialty.

We’re in this business because we want to help you feel, look, and perform better… whatever body or goals you have.

If you want to join our next nutrition coaching program, we’d love to help you.

If that’s not a great fit for you, no problem. Just find one or more people who can support you, guide you, help you, and maybe give you the occasional loving boot in the butt when you need it.

The important thing is that you make yourself accountable to somebody and get the help you need. You have a lot on your plate already; why not let someone else show you the way?
