The Working Against Gravity Nutrition Coach Certification Program won’t just educate you about nutrition, it will teach you about the psychology of lasting change and long-term fulfillment, and give you the tools necessary to create a new life for yourself and every client you serve along the way.

So... What Exactly Is the Working Against Gravity Certification?

There’s a huge difference between information and transformation.

At Working Against Gravity, we give our certified coaches both the knowledge they need and the tools to implement it for the people they seek to serve.

Our mission is simple: we want to help people lose weight, gain muscle, increase performance and feel better than ever through the power of customized, one-on-one nutrition coaching.

If you want that, too, then our certification program is your one-stop-shop for making it happen.

Life is more than food, but proper nutrition plays a huge role in every facet of a person’s well-being (and we’ve got more than 21,000 members who can attest). We’ll teach you our individualized, macro-focused method for results that last – not just in you and your client’s physical bodies, but in your mental and emotional selves, as well.

We teach you to uncover the knowledge, control and confidence – deeply buried but inherent in all of us – necessary to empower each client’s body and mind, so that you can help them trade short-term “fixes” for long-term fulfillment.

“Working Against Gravity’s philosophy is the perfect blend of a data-driven, macro-counting approach to nutrition, combined with habit-based coaching. In the past, I felt limited in my ability to help clients with nutrition. All of the "nutrition gurus" want to make you believe that you have to fall into a certain camp and follow specific rules. After taking the WAG coaching certification, I feel empowered with the knowledge I’ve gained about the principles behind successful nutrition coaching. I am no longer trying to fit the client to the nutrition approach. I am now fitting the nutrition approach to the client.”

– Nick

“As soon as I saw WAG was offering a certification I jumped at the chance. I have struggled with weight issues my entire life. WAG changed my life because we worked on mindset along the way. It's one thing to read something and pick an answer on a multiple choice test. It's another when you're actually able to apply what you just studied. The feedback from my coach was extremely helpful. I never once felt lost in this program. Everything was very clear and relatable. I feel confident that no matter what my clients are going through, I will be able to support them.”

– Heather

“I have a degree in Sports Management and I really enjoyed the WAG Certification course. The content was just right, and I enjoyed having a real life person read over the material and give feedback versus just a computer grading the work. It gives you confidence and shows where there’s room for improvement and growth. I am very confident in being able to help others, especially with the help of seasoned coaches by my side.”

– Mandy

“I love the way this course is structured. I wanted to learn more about how to calculate macros for my current (and future) clients, but I also learned so much more about lifestyle and training.... excellent!”


Real-Life Coaching Brought To You By Real-Life Coaches

The WAG Certification includes all that we know and use – from the latest in nutrition science to tens of thousands of hours’ worth of professional expertise – distilled and delivered directly to you.

  • Trusted by...Everybody.

    Fitness coaches? Check. Postpartum moms? Check. Olympic medalists? Check. Executive businesspersons? Check. Professional athletes? Check. Beer-bellied undergrads? Check. Humans who already have nutrition degrees? Check. The point is, our methodology works for everyone in all walks of life (so you can confidently use it in your world, too.)

  • An Empathetic Approach.

    We don’t teach anything we haven’t learned, and every single WAG Coach was once a student. We understand the vulnerability it takes for someone to admit they’re in need. Successful nutrition coaching isn’t just academic – it’s inventive and discerning. Sure, we’ll teach you the science, but we’ll also help you navigate emotional waters to coach your clients toward success.

  • Pertinent Psychology.

    It has been said that “a better life starts in the mind,” and you won’t get far with your clients without their belief in their ability to change. Most diets fail not because they don’t work — but because people don’t stick to them. Through the WAG Certification, you’ll learn a unique approach to self development by helping them connect the dots between what they eat and what they believe.

  • Self-Paced Learning.

    Life isn’t a one-size-fits-all scenario. Study at your own speed, and we’ll be with you every step of the way. The WAG Certification Program is an interactive, module-based course, personally guided and overseen by our very own coaches. Through an easily accessible online curriculum, you can complete your certification in your time – without the pressure of deadlines hanging overhead.

  • The Coaching Community.

    We deeply believe in the power of accountability. We know we’re better together. When you begin working toward your WAG Certification, we’ll give you instant access to our private “Coach Cert” Facebook Group, where you’ll be able to connect with and receive help from other students-in-process and Working Against Gravity coaches at your service.

The Course Curriculum: How it Works

We keep it simple: the entire WAG Certification course exists within our easy-to-use online platform.

The curriculum is broken up into multiple phases, the first of which you’ll be given immediate access to following registration for the program, and each remaining phase is unlocked upon successful completion of the one before it.

Here is a brief overview of the phases, and what each entails:

Phase 1

Intro to Flexible Dieting and Nutrition Science

Learn from the best of the best in nutrition science and the people who put their knowledge to work. Here, you’ll have access to world-renowned research, and the opportunity to take full advantage of our library of reference material to use as you work with your own clients.
Phase 2

The WAG Knowledge Base: Understanding Clients and their Needs

Each person is unique, and “healthy nutrition” is not a one-size-fits-all prescription. Here, we take a deep-dive into our main focus area – macros. What are they, how do they work, and how do you assign them according to your client’s goals?
Phase 3

Creating Sample Profiles (Application)

Have you ever heard it said that knowledge is nothing without action? Here, you’ll put your learning to work through assigning macronutrient programs to variable client scenarios and connecting with us, personally, to discuss your philosophy and show us how you arrived at your conclusions.
Phase 4

WAG Level 2 Coaching Manual (Nutrition and Psychology)

Here, we focus largely on your approach to coaching clients successfully, which includes everything from when to speak and when to listen, motivation and mindfulness, and how to scale your own business while combating imposter syndrome, practicing self-care and time and energy management.
Phase 5

Sample Client Check-ins & Advanced, Challenging Scenarios

In the fifth and final stage of this program, you’ll have the opportunity to prove your unique ability to respond to client check-ins as though you were their coach, receive feedback from your certification administrator, and practice creative, personalized planning for the next stage of their journey.
Phase 6

Specialty Programs - Ketogenic Diet & Coaching Pregnant Women

Learn how to set macros for keto clients, train individuals in their diet and educate them about how to test ketones. Additionally, learn pregnancy physiology and trimester-specific, nutrition-rich recommendations for soon-to-be-moms so that you can properly support women to healthy pregnancies.


The price of the WAG Certification Program is a one-time fee of $999.

The WAG Certification includes all that we know and use – from the latest in nutrition science to tens of thousands of hours’ worth of professional expertise – distilled and delivered directly to you.

The Certification will only be made available to a limited number of students at a time.

Because of our hands-on teaching approach, wherein we couple current, actually-human (and not computer) WAG Coaches with program participants, we simply cannot make our availability limitless while preserving the standard of excellence to which we hold ourselves.

What does that mean, exactly?

  1. When we’re out of space, we close the doors. (The last time we made this program available, it sold out in three hours after one email… which we only sent to a tiny fraction of our WAG Alumni Members.) This time, we’re only making available to the people who sign up here, so if you want it, join the WAG Certification list right here, right now.
  2. Those of you who do make it into our program can expect the best of the best when it comes to your training. We won’t be spread thin, like a burnt-out professor lecturing a school-hall filled with 500 disinterested students. Instead, you’ll receive the same kind of one-on-one guide that all of our students have come to expect with WAG. (Plus, this’ll be way cheaper, way quicker and way more pragmatic than any standardized nutrition testing you’d receive in a traditional academic setting will).

We are only making the WAG Certification available to subscribers of this list. If you want to secure your spot when we “open doors” and make our program available, sign up now.


  • Does This Certification Course Function Off Of A Grading System?

    No. We are dedicated to your successful completion of this course, and each coach / guide assigned to our students is there to ensure that all questions are answered, information is digested and implementation is practiced so that you are set up for success, and so that your clients are truly able to receive the instruction they need in order to get the results they deserve. The only way to “fail” is to quit.

  • How Long Does It Take To Get Certified?

    Everyone leads a different life, and everyone’s availability / opportunity for time investment is unique. The WAG Certification Program is an entirely self-paced curriculum, so that – similar to our coaching methodology – it works for you, specifically. That said, we have seen motivated students obtain their certification in as quickly as four weeks.

  • Do You Offer Any Sort Of Payment Plans?

    No. As of now, the WAG Certification is a one-time fee of $999. We understand that can sound like quite the investment, but at the end of the day, it works itself out to about $84 per month if you were to pay for this program over the course of a full year. To put that into perspective, though, most personal coaches charge at least that amount… per client… per session. With this kind of training, then, the question becomes… what is it costing you not to pursue this certification? As a team that understands spending tens of thousands of dollars on their education, this course – combined with the cumulative knowledge and hands-on expertise of everyone on our team – is a huge bang for a (relatively) small buck when all is said and done.

  • Does completing this course get me a job at WAG?

    No. While completing this course is a pre-requisite to becoming a coach at WAG, it does not guarantee that you will get a job. You are free to apply but please note that we only open a handful of coaching positions at WAG at a time.

  • Are There Any Physical Textbooks or Fine-Print Expenses That I’ll Need To Purchase / Consider?

    No. The WAG Certification Program is an entirely online/internet-based course curriculum. Through our platform, which we’ll give you access to upon registration, you’ll be able to study, take quizzes and personally interact with coaches who are available to help you along the way.
