Why I Chose NCI for my NUTRITION COACHING CERTIFICATION | Comparing Top Programs

Why I Chose NCI for my NUTRITION COACHING CERTIFICATION | Comparing Top Programs

I spent months choosing the right nutrition coaching certification program, and it was much more difficult than I anticipated! I looked at ACE, NASM, ISSA, Precision Nutrition, IIN (Institute of Integrative Nutrition), and NCI, and I walk you through my thought process and give you my general impressions of each. After hearing the interview with Jason Phillips on Mind Pump and doing some investigation, I ended up choosing NCI and shed some light on their level 1 certification program and my experience so far.

    so epic! Jason Phillips is a client and friend of mine. good choice

  2. TUKROgraphy on May 5, 2023 at 11:58 am

    Hi Laura, I signed up but turns out they double charged me and they have been unresponsive yet. They don’t respond to any of my mails, messages nothing. It’s a lot of money so I probably have to get my bank involved for a dispute. Is this a common issue with NCI ?

  3. Zitrone Eng on May 5, 2023 at 11:58 am

    Took me 9 minutes to notice the dog on her bed.

  4. Ben Goodbrand on May 5, 2023 at 11:59 am

    Great video Laura. I listened to the most recent Mind Pump episode with Jason Phillips, and it’s how I stumbled across your channel while looking for more info. Booking in my call today.

  5. Oscar V on May 5, 2023 at 11:59 am

    Thank you. I really liked your video and all the details you touched on.

  6. The Wonderfool Girl on May 5, 2023 at 12:00 pm

    I just finished the ISSA nutrition certificate and I did not like it. It doesn’t give any pratical scenario and how to apply what you learned. I feel lost.

  7. Melissa Martinez Rogers on May 5, 2023 at 12:02 pm

    Thank you so much for taking the time to do and post this video. I, also, listen to Mind Pump and that how I heard about NCI and I also tried to find information including price and couldn’t find anything so you answered a lot of my questions, I am going to get in contact with an NCI rep to get more information. Thank you so much for this, it was an immense help!!!!!

  8. Science Based Fitness on May 5, 2023 at 12:04 pm

    Great video thanks!

  9. Sol-Pal John Bejarano on May 5, 2023 at 12:05 pm

    Does anyone know the price for level 1 at NCI?

  10. Jack Schram on May 5, 2023 at 12:06 pm

    Laura, can you link the mindpump podcast episode that you mentioned in the video please?

  11. Arvin Barbara on May 5, 2023 at 12:06 pm

    Hi Laura, Thanks for this review. I want to ask, Do you recommend NCI for someone who’s a beginner and has little knowledge about Nutrition? I saw that the NCI Level 1 program is just a 2-days course. I’m not sure if I can learn and start coaching after that 2-day course. Is it possible? Or they only offer it for people who’re working with clients already? Really don’t know how the program will run. Thanks😊

  12. Niesha Dorsey on May 5, 2023 at 12:08 pm

    Thank you so much for this video! I am currently searching for the best program for me. Thank you for this information! 🙂❤️

  13. Galina Niyazov on May 5, 2023 at 12:08 pm

    Very very helpful unbiased video!! Iin is a scam and all the videos recommending it are just earning money on commission

  14. Jeff Born on May 5, 2023 at 12:08 pm

    HOOOLLLYY SHIT!!! I watched this video shortly before getting on a call with Frankie for NCI in September, 2021. Even after we met in AZ at SMTF, I had no idea until NOW that YOU were the one that made this video!! Small world, I love it!

  15. Johana Matias on May 5, 2023 at 12:11 pm

    Just enrolled today! Could you make a video on how you binded your manual? 🙂

  16. Nomad Wisdom on May 5, 2023 at 12:11 pm

    Have been trying to find more about the cost of level 1… no luck! Got a call with one of their sales rep this weekend. Doing this for both finding out what the heck I do wrong and guide other men’s to be in better shape (cherry on top would be to become location independent)
    Thanks for the video

  17. Karen Carney on May 5, 2023 at 12:16 pm

    What does nasm and nci stand for? What do rhey things stand for? Which ones can I get to help navigate people to better lives?

  18. yourartistcarlos on May 5, 2023 at 12:18 pm

    Thank you

  19. Felicia Crowe on May 5, 2023 at 12:20 pm

    Hi Laura. thank you for making this video, It was helpful. One question I have is NCI an American program? I’m a Canadian and want a Canadian program/certification.

  20. Victor Morales on May 5, 2023 at 12:21 pm

    So what’s the final verdict NCI vs Precision nutrition?

  21. Brent Beatty on May 5, 2023 at 12:22 pm

    Approximate payscale for this profession?

  22. It’s a good day on May 5, 2023 at 12:22 pm

    would this be a helpful if someone wanted to do this for holistic health coach?

  23. Brent Beatty on May 5, 2023 at 12:22 pm

    Currently work at Cleveland Cliffs steel mill in Weirton WV… Will inquire with NCI asap..

    Thank you for your insight and time making this video.

  24. Liz Bradshaw Fitness on May 5, 2023 at 12:23 pm

    Hi Laura! Great video but could you tell me who is the accredidation organized for NCI. I’ve looked on their website and have found no information.

  25. Garrett on May 5, 2023 at 12:23 pm

    Yay! Finally someone that listens to mindpump! 😎

  26. J P Williams on May 5, 2023 at 12:24 pm

    Very helpful, thank you!

  27. Markus The Drummer on May 5, 2023 at 12:24 pm

    I learned a ton, thank you

  28. Tyson on May 5, 2023 at 12:26 pm

    First off thank you for making the video.

    Have you found any other nutrition certs with the level of application that Jason puts in the curriculum?

    Have you found anyone else in the game that reminds you of Jason Phillips? His articulation of concepts and ability to introduce that applicable carryover is something I have yet to find in someone else.

  29. theseaswell on May 5, 2023 at 12:27 pm

    Does anyone know anything about the Health Mastery Institute? They seem to be smaller than others, and there isn’t too much information out there.

  30. Error on May 5, 2023 at 12:27 pm

    How do i know your not" selling"the program!!!!! Trust issue

  31. Valentin Zamora BULL on May 5, 2023 at 12:28 pm

    Hey Laura, great video. I came acros your video because I am also looking for nutrition certification and this has been of great help. NCI sounds like a great option. Do you think I will be eligible to do this course? I am in africa and I am not even a English native speaker ( Spainsh is my native language) but guess my English is not that bad. I know I can afford the course but not sure if this is just for U.S citizens. Any idea? Thanks.

  32. powerisme on May 5, 2023 at 12:28 pm

    As an indian which one should i take

  33. O’Neil on May 5, 2023 at 12:29 pm

    Great video! ☺️

  34. James C on May 5, 2023 at 12:29 pm

    9 minutes in I just noticed the dog sleeping lol.

  35. Sabrina Gorman on May 5, 2023 at 12:31 pm

    Can you make a video about how to get started with nutrition coaching after going through the certification?!

  36. Diksha Bhutra on May 5, 2023 at 12:31 pm

    Hi i cannot find the cost of nutrition course on NCI website . can you please help?

  37. Garry on May 5, 2023 at 12:31 pm

    Great video! Very helpful

  39. One in the Ocean on May 5, 2023 at 12:32 pm

    Hi, Laura! Thank you for your efforts in making this video. This helped me to understand so many things. I’m looking for a course myself. SUBSCRIBED! <3

  40. benjamin hidalgo on May 5, 2023 at 12:33 pm

    U started off sounding candid and relatable and everything

    You had my complete trust but lost it when you started sounding very very salesy and scripted…
    Im going with nasm simply because I already have familiarity with them from their PT cert

  41. Quinton on May 5, 2023 at 12:33 pm

    Spent 10K on NCI and BCI, wasn’t my thing, didn’t even get certified and they said no refunds🙃

  42. Krista Regan on May 5, 2023 at 12:34 pm

    Appreciate this so much!

    Did your training include how to read various tests (like the OAT test for example)?

  43. Carz03 on May 5, 2023 at 12:34 pm

    This was an awesome review. Subscribed!

    hi Laura…wondering if this certification will work in another country or just in the US

  45. Ivan Teo on May 5, 2023 at 12:42 pm

    Thank you for the advice! I will check It out.

  46. terry wilson on May 5, 2023 at 12:42 pm

    Great video, thanks. I’m currently getting cert for PT through NASM, but looking into nutrition coach as additional supplement as it seems most need additional cert for additional $. Do you recommend that I take NCI concurrently or is it best to wait until after PT cert? Thanks again.

  47. David S on May 5, 2023 at 12:48 pm

    NCI doesn’t list prices, and reps wont give answers…

  48. Irene Ives on May 5, 2023 at 12:50 pm

    Ahhh thank you! So glad I found this review …legit was about to sign up for iin & then boom a reddit comment came up *thank goodness for technology stalking your every move lol …the reddit comments also steered me away. I thought I did enough research but glad I’m continuing to look into other options more

  49. Vijay fitness on May 5, 2023 at 12:50 pm

    How much coast level 1 certification NCI , and plzzz suggest best personal trainer certification

  50. B S on May 5, 2023 at 12:51 pm

    I’ve taken ACE, PN and NASM nutrition programs. NASMs course is by far the best. It’s the most comprehensive and they provide the best study materials with engaging content and videos. Written and peer-reviewed by over 20 experts (PhDs, RDs).
