Help clients break through plateaus,
uncover hidden stressors
and make more progress

In a world that's becoming more stressed, less resilient, and deeply sleep-deprived, you can help clients in a way that most coaches can't by showing them how to better manage life's challenges in healthy ways.

With a strategic, science-based approach, you'll use your knowledge of the human body to coach your clients holistically—as you help them optimize their sleep, better manage stress and recover more effectively so they can perform their best and face anything that life throws at them.

When you do that, your clients will recognize your value, stick around longer and eagerly refer their friends to you. You'll become truly indispensable!

Develop a personalized sleep, stress management and recovery plan

This comprehensive program features over 40 hours of content dedicated entirely to sleep, stress management and recovery. You'll go far beyond surface-level advice and dig into the physiology and psychology of how our bodies respond to stress, as well as how they naturally heal and grow.

You'll get plenty of "learn by doing" opportunities throughout the program, including case studies based on real-world clients and simulated coaching conversations to hone your skills.

Upon completion, you'll know how to apply Precision Nutrition's reliable, repeatable 6-step process for helping yourself and others make sustainable changes to how they sleep, manage stress and recover.

How do I complete this course?

By the end of the program, you'll have completed 25 short exams, 10-15 questions each. You must complete all modules and achieve a 75% or higher to earn your certificate of completion from Precision Nutrition.

Upon completion, you will be able to:

  • Identify common stressors, key recovery modalities and ideal behaviors in sleep rituals—as well as how they shape client behavior and outcomes.
  • Understand both the short- and long-term effects and illnesses that can result from chronic stress, inadequate recovery and poor sleep.
  • Look at health and wellbeing more holistically—and see how sleep, stress and recovery connect to all aspects of life.
  • Analyze the macro- and micro- levels of stress and recovery, starting from the genes and proteins that regulate sleep, to the systemic disparities in stress, recovery and health outcomes.
  • Use your new skills to guide your clients through personalized, comprehensive plans that help them: handle stress more effectively, sleep better and longer, and recover so they can perform their best.

  • What makes a great coach
  • How to set yourself up for the best learning experience

  • Mental or cognitive stressors, like information overload
  • Emotional stressors, like grief and loss
  • Social stress in your relationships
  • Existential stress during a life transition
  • Environmental stressors in your workplace

Plus, explore how each of these areas affect (and can be affected by) sleep, the "recovery rockstar."

  • How to track progress in improving recovery behaviors such as sleep
  • What nutrition habits can support recovery
  • What types of movement can help improve long-term physical performance
  • Which mental skills can help manage and even embrace stressors when they can't be reduced
