Dialing in Sports Nutrition: What Works—And Why

Helping your clients reach their full potential takes more than the perfect training plan—it requires a holistic approach that not only teaches athletes how to train for, but also how to live for performance. Diet and nutrition are essential but require the proper education and application—especially for more athletic-oriented clients. One-size-fits-all diets and standardized calorie recommendations may work for those just trying to get into shape, but the advanced athlete requires a more fine-tuned approach. This course will help you educate your clients about eating for energy, optimal health and peak performance.

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, 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, practical consulting tips 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.

Career Outlook

With a growing demand from clients for sports nutrition planning, any professional who works with those striving to be healthy, fit, and perform at their best will benefit from this course. Registered dietitians, exercise professionals, athletic trainers, exercise physiologists, sports medicine professionals, coaches and more will learn a combination of practical consultation strategies, in-depth knowledge on sports nutrition—and even information on how to grow your business and your career by offering nutritional education to your clients.
