Nourish Your Clients With The Right Advice
Although 90% of Americans say diet and nutrition are important, nearly half of them don’t know or understand how to achieve a balanced diet, according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Becoming a Fitness Nutrition Specialist will give you the expertise to provide scientifically supported, practical and relevant nutrition advice to your clients while staying within your scope of practice. Be the source of nutrition information they need to navigate a landscape of quick-fix solutions, poor food choices, and a multi-billion dollar diet industry.
Who is it designed for?
Becoming a Fitness Nutrition Specialist will help personal trainers, group fitness instructors, health coaches, and health care professionals expand their knowledge of nutrition and learn to translate that information into actionable lifestyle change for clients and patients. Give advice on selecting and preparing food, reading nutrition labels, and choosing meals that facilitate weight loss, improve athletic performance and meet special dietary needs.
