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 help you answer your clients’ questions on eating for energy, optimal health and peak performance, and will provide you with practical “how to” fueling information that will 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, 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.

Career Outlook

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:

  • What’s new (and what’s old) regarding sports nutrition and training information
  • 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


Some of the information was very dry. Would have liked more information about specific foods to eat.

This was a good source of information. It was sometimes difficult to engage in some of the modules, which I felt was highly dependent on the speaker. Over all very impressed with the content.

I found it really incongruous with the two instructors. John Ivy's lectures were way beyond my comprehension as far as technicality and need for a background in nutritional science. Nancy Clark was a nice relief from the dry information. My disappointment was that I was really excited about learning more about this subject, and instead of information I could relate to, I struggled with learning the language of the lecture. No doubt that both of the instructors are excellent at what they do, it was just above my head.

Notes were not complete enough

Up to date knowledge that every Personal Trainer should have. Let's face it, our clients are taking more supplements, hearing more about diets such as Paleo and Keto than ever before and with that we must acquire the knowledge and skill set to discuss professionally.
