Sharing a overview of the Precision Nutrition Level One certification with my expertise thus far, and the way I plan to make use of it.
Hello associates! Hope you’re having an exquisite week thus far! I’m seeing Within the Heights as we speak with my nana and madre (can’t wait!) and have been learning my face off. I’m about midway via my Precision Nutrition degree one certification, so I believed I’d submit an replace on my expertise thus far and the way I plan to make use of this certification in my enterprise.
Precision Nutrition graciously waived my certification price, and I used to be so grateful and excited as a result of I’d been eyeing the certification for a few years. One in every of issues that at all times stood out to me was the give attention to mindset and the right way to coach successfully and make diet adjustments which can be sustainable and sensible for distinctive circumstances and preferences. It’s one factor to create an incredible meal plan, however it’s one other factor solely to assist others make lasting adjustments that work for his or her life and schedule whereas propelling them in direction of their targets.
Right here’s how the curriculum is ready up:
There are three completely different modules: the Precision Nutrition method (what makes an incredible coach, the right way to create lasting adjustments, and what does strong diet truly imply?), the science of diet (WHY issues occur and work the best way they do), and dealing via the PN teaching course of (the right way to use all of this info, teaching varied ranges of purchasers, and particular eventualities).
You learn the chapter within the textual content e-book, have the choice to observe a video on their platform (or hearken to the audio), view any related case research, and take an examination for the chapter. You are taking your examination earlier than shifting onto the following chapter.
The coursework additionally features a research information to reply follow questions and take notes. The research information has been extraordinarily useful and I’ll usually use it to make little drawings or writing down ideas I need to bear in mind. The whole lot is superbly packaged, simple to hold round with you (I’ve been learning within the gymnastics car parking zone, at dance competitions, and in parking heaps ready to choose up the ladies from varied locations), and primarily based on probably the most present science and data.
They provide the instruments to create a enterprise, together with on-line assessments and questionnaires for purchasers. I LOVE that they set you up for achievement. So most of the certifications I’ve completed have been like, “Congrats! Good luck on the market!” and this one is like, “Listed here are all the steps to truly put your certification into follow instantly.”

How I plan to make use of my Precision Nutrition certification:
I feel it’s price noting right here that I’ll NOT be a Registered Dietitian after finishing this course, and when you’ve got very particular diet wants or circumstances, you need to completely hunt down an RD in your space! Nevertheless, if you happen to’re searching for concepts on the right way to create sustainable adjustments and would really like personalized macro tips, I might be your gal. 😉
To start out off, I’m teaching myself! I create personalized macro tips utilizing their on-line toolkit and primarily based it on my private stats, targets (add lean muscle, lower physique fats, which has gone up this previous yr), and most well-liked consuming type (Mediterranean). They’ve a few choices for monitoring macros: you need to use particular gram quantities and weigh/measure every little thing, or you’ll be able to “eyeball it” primarily based on visible measurements. For instance, a palm is a protein serving, a carb serving is your cupped hand, greens is one fist, and fats is one thumb. It is a nice option to measure as a result of it’s constant (your fingers don’t change dimension dramatically), it’s relative (a smaller particular person with small fingers wants much less meals than somebody who has massive fingers and a bigger physique body), and it’s handy (they’re at all times with you). Once I calculate macros for my purchasers, you’ll obtain the gram quantity suggestions and the visible suggestions (for instance four palms of protein every day, 5 cupped fingers of carbs, 6 thumbs of fats, and many others.).
I’ll submit my outcomes and last ideas once I end up my certification, which I anticipate to be the tip of July. Fit Team members could have first dibs on diet teaching and I’ll open up my availability from there. 🙂 I’m so excited to get to know extra of you and add this providing to my present health applications and memberships.
