Why The BTN Academy?
We at BTN exist to demystify fact from fiction in the world of nutrition, aiming to act as a voice of reason in an industry clouded with false truths and contradictions, and to simplify the evidence so we can see the truth with all things nutrition.
We'll take your nutrition knowledge to the next level, whether you're simply looking to understand evidence based nutrition, an aspiring coach or an existing one looking to up-skill. We have online courses to help beginners get started, and to help professionals become qualified nutrition coaches.
We offer 3 online courses
Study the fundamentals of nutrition online with The BTN Foundation Academy, a 10 module accredited course which you can start any time, and enhance your understanding of nutrition. Become a Level 4 Nutrition Coach with our yearlong BTN Practical Academy, our Active IQ qualification which opens in May and November. And our BTN Business Academy, for the coaches looking to enhance their fitness and nutrition coaching business. If you did all 3 courses this is how we would stack up compared to other training providers…

After following Ben Coomber's work for some time I knew the courses BTN offer would be perfect for me. The BTN foundation, practical and business academy has left me with invaluable knowledge and skills and I am now able to offer an even better service to my clients to help them achieve their goals. I would thoroughly recommend the BTN courses to anybody in the fitness industry looking to enhance their skills and knowledge as well as anybody who is on their own personal health and fitness journey. The impact not only on my clients but on me has been entirely positive. I am a better, more confident and empowered coach because of being involved with BTN.

Thanks so much for what I consider to be a life changing course. I would certainly recommend it to anyone with an interest in nutrition and have done, many times already!
Working with the BTN Academy has expanded my knowledge base as well as totally changed my approach to working with clients. The content is by far the most practical of any nutrition course I have done before and is laid out in away that you can understand and implement it with clients immediately. The weekly calls are all recorded and the ability to catch up at your own pace as made it really easy for any times when I am busy. The best choice of course I have made as a fitness professional and strongly urge any trainers looking to expand their knowledge to get on board.
I personally wish to thank you all for the kind support and knowledge, you have helped me learn an incredible amount. It's really helped with the many clients I have in their own personal journeys and I’ve got incredible results which could not of been achieved without this course. Since joining the course I've grown my business to be well respected in Edinburgh and was nominated for SFN Expo Personal Trainer Of The Year and since received a position as Assistant General Manager of The Gym Group Hamilton, another step in my career. I'm really happy I made the leap of faith to learn and be mentored by you all.
