About the Food Allergies and Intolerances Awareness Certification

The demand for fitness instructors has increased in recent times as people have, and continue to, become more health-conscious. Along with exercise and motivation techniques, it is also vital for fitness instructors to be confident in their knowledge of the principles of nutrition, along with successful nutritional strategies to help their clients reach their goals.

In recent times, there has also been an increase in food allergies and intolerances. It is vital that fitness instructors understand the signs and symptoms of these, and ways in which to combat these so that it doesn’t affect the client’s goals for a healthier life.

The purpose of this course is to educate fitness instructors on food allergies and intolerances, and the importance of nutrition on weight management, sports performance and overall health. You will also learn appropriate nutritional assessment tools to help identify a client’s dietary habits.
