Don't struggle on your own. Get lasting results you never thought possible.
Kristen Carter + Precision Nutrition
Precision Nutrition is the world’s leading nutrition coaching, software, and certification company. Proven with over 100,000 people over 15 years, their mission is research-driven, life-changing nutrition coaching for everyone.
What Is ProCoach?
ProCoach is a nutrition and fitness platform with curriculum built and written by Precision Nutrition. Over the last 15 years, this program has helped more than 900,000 people lose over a million pounds of fat and lead healthier lives. Precision Nutrition created the ProCoach program in 2016 as way to reach more people with their methods. It is completely online (other than when you talk to your coach). Precision Nutrition will only license the software to individuals certified by them.
The ProCoach program is a year-long habit modification program that changes your relationship with food and physical activity. At the end of that year, you have slowly developed new habits that fit in with your lifestyle, schedule, environment but that create a healthier, more energetic you. And, by the way, side effects may include getting more lean, fitting into those jeans from 10 years ago, and friends now asking you how you did it.
This is NOT a diet or a quick start program. The problem with those is that they are generally fairly restrictive until an elusive goal has been met, and then you go back to doing whatever you were doing before. Then you have to start all over again.
Why Get Coaching?
I think most of us know what to do. But translating that knowledge into the right actions that get you to your goals can be the missing piece. As your coach, I provide direction, assistance, accountability, and help with overcoming challenges. The coaching relationship creates a safe place to work through your internal roadblocks and whatever life throws at you.
Hi, I'm Kristen, creator of Design for Fitness. I help you find the right mix of mindset, action, and awareness so that you can develop a realistic plan to meet your health and fitness goals. My work is based on solid research and science.
We need to re-examine the tools that we are using to help people lead healthier lives and overcome the challenges we are up against - such as images put out by the fitness industry, commercialism in gyms, and pressure from those selling the latest fad. We are also up against body/brain chemistry, human nature, fast food, and our own busy lives and current lifestyles.

How Does ProCoach Work?
You tell me what you want to do. I’ll help you do it. First, I’ll learn about your lifestyle, needs, and specific goals. Then, over the course of the program, I’ll give you everything you need to get you there. Along the way, you may find yourself reaching goals you never thought possible.
You’ve probably tried multiple diet and workout programs in the past. And you’ve concluded that they simply don’t work for you in the long run.
Instead of the all-or-nothing dieting approach, I use a sustainable, practice-based approach to build healthy habits into your life, one day at a time. Precision Nutrition has designed a new approach where you practice the skills you need to make the switch to a healthier lifestyle. These are proven strategies developed by a team of researchers and psychologists that are thoroughly based in science and tested.
Why is the Program a Full Year?
To really make changes to be healthier, you need to be consistent. Most people who try to get in shape overload themselves and burn out quickly. Instead, I help you focus on small practices that get you to big results.
Along the way, you get daily support, guidance and accountability that keeps you on track. Also built in is a way to get back on track when life gets in the way.
Even if you decide it’s time to turn things around, it can be difficult to know what to do next. And, staying motivated is hard…especially if you try to do it all on your own.
The habits we have created for ourselves have taken years to develop. Often we have even lost track of how they came to be in the first place. It takes time to create awareness, rebuild, and develop lasting change. But, you are worth it.
We also work together to create and practice healthy habits across every aspect of your life. These include sleep, stress management, and movement. Everything works together to help you feel calm and confident in your new habits.
Is Personal Coaching Right for You?
Coach Kristen Carter and Precision Nutrition is for you if:
You want to get healthier, fitter, and stronger — and stay that way for the rest of your life.
This program is for people who want to lose weight and body fat, build physical strength and confidence, get results that last, and get off the diet roller-coaster once and for all. I won’t give you a crazy diet or exercise program to follow; instead, I’ll help you build habits that will get you results that last forever.
You’re tired of “quick fix” programs and are willing to dedicate 12 months to getting in shape the sustainable way.
If you’ve tried something before and “failed” — or just can’t stick with it — know that you’re not alone. And it’s not your fault. After all, self-directed training and nutrition programs fail 98 percent of the time. Not to mention, after many years in the fitness industry, I’ve seen dozens of diet and exercise fads come and go. That’s why I don’t follow fads. Instead, I’ll teach you doable daily actions that are designed to fit into a busy lifestyle. Bottom line: I’ll help you make fitness and nutrition a part of your life, without it taking over.
You want an expert to hold you accountable and keep you consistent through the program.
Nothing worth doing can be done alone. That’s why I work closely with my clients to help them eat well and exercise, no matter what other craziness is going on in their lives. You’re busy and have enough to worry about; let me take care of the fitness and nutrition details so you don’t have to.
The Nitty Gritties
By now you are probably wondering exactly how the program works.
There are three tracks, all for one year.
- Nutrition alone;
- Fitness alone;
- Nutrition Plus Fitness combined.
You can choose which one fits your needs and goals, and which one you are ready for!
Each day you get a nutrition habit to practice and a lesson for guidance. You get a new habit to work on every two weeks, but you will get daily reminders for each habit. Workouts are also given daily, based on your abilities, goals, and current health status. In other words, everything is customized to fit YOU.
You can choose to receive only the workouts or only the nutrition program, but I strongly recommend getting both. There are many reasons for this. Most notably, nutrition helps you lose weight and feel better, and fitness supports both of those efforts. Even makes them easier.
