About the Sports Nutrition Certification

Nutrition is vital for enhanced athletic performance. The objective of sports nutrition is to improve performance in sports and exercise. Active adults, as well as athletes, will be able to demonstrate high performance with a properly designed nutritional plan.

At a fundamental level, a nutrition plan should aim to help clients consume the right type and quantity of food, nutrients, fluids and energy. This will help with peak performance levels. The nutritional needs of each individual vary, so the plan has to be customised to suit the individual and their personal objectives.

This course is designed to help personal trainers gain the basic and vital information needed regarding nutrition and explains how it can be used to optimise performance in active adults and athletes. 

The various modules, activities and tests in this course will help you understand, acknowledge and apply the right nutritional strategies for your clients. You will learn about how motivation is key to success in fitness objectives and how you can encourage and educate clients in making sound, healthy food selections.
