Dialing in Sports Nutrition: What Works—And Why
What are the best foods for better energy and performance? What types of food can be used to build muscle and enhance strength and power? Competitive athletes are continuously seeking ways to optimize their performance, and nutrition is an important area that can help them achieve their goals. This course will translate the science of exercise physiology into practical knowhow. It will help you answer your clients’ questions on eating for energy, optimal health and peak performance, and will provide you with fueling tips to help your clients eat to win.
Taught by noted sports nutrition experts Nancy Clark, RD, CSSD, whose Sports Nutrition Guidebook has sold more than half a million copies, and Dr. John Ivy, PhD, whose research has pioneered our understanding of muscle metabolism and how nutrition can improve exercise performance, this comprehensive course will give you a deeper understanding of the interaction between nutrition and exercise training, up-to-date information about proper sports nutrition, how to create sports-related food plans, the importance of meal and supplement training and more. Most importantly, it will provide you with the knowledge and the confidence to help your clients achieve their goals in and out of the gym.
With a growing demand from clients for sports nutrition planning, any professional who works with those striving to be healthy, fit and looking to perform at their best will benefit from this course. Registered dietitians, exercise professionals, athletic trainers, exercise physiologists, sports medicine professionals, coaches and others will learn a combination of practical consultation strategies, in-depth knowledge on sports nutrition and pointers on how to grow your business and your career by offering nutritional education to your clients.
You will learn:

- How to understand the interactions between nutrition and exercise training
- Practical counseling tips you can immediately put into practice
- Insights into how to coach clients on weight and body image issues
- How to improve your business and professional activities
Excellent course, very thorough! One big inconvenience was that some of the quizzes did not match the presentation materials at all (see quizzes for Modules 5, 6, and 8).
Nancy was great .. John hard to keep attention to
I enjoyed Nancy Clark's sections: She was easy to follow, pleasant to listen to, gave very applicable research and advice; quizzes were well balanced. However, Dr. Ivy was not easy to listen to (monotone) and quizzes didn't always focus on the most relevant/applicable facts. Also, the quiz for module 5 was totally unrelated to the subject matter of module 5. The quiz for module 8 was also unrelated to the subject matter of module 8. I believe the quiz for module 6 really corresponded to module 5 (?) I especially benefitted from the modules that discussed hydration and disordered eating.
The first two modules were extremely technical and heavy for someone without formal education in exercise science. I really enjoyed the next 5 modules though.
