Welcome to The BTN Academy
Imagine understanding nutrition and habit change so effectively, that when someone asks you to help them change their lifestyle and achieve their goals, you have one simple answer: YES.
Nutrition is one of the most powerful tools you can have in your arsenal when working towards improving your life, or someone else’s. It’s fundamental to managing your weight, improving your health, and supporting physical exercise.

- Teach you not just the science of nutrition, but its application
- Empower you to achieve many goals yourself and importantly with clients, such as losing weight, building muscle, enhancing health, and much more

This course was absolutely excellent. There was so much knowledge and detail in the course and it was exactly what I was looking for to improve my nutrition and health knowledge so I can offer better advice to clients when I start into my personal training career. The course book, videos explaining each section and quizzes during the course really helped to retain and gain a better understanding of each section of the course. I would highly recommend this course!

Having been very confused over nutrition for several years, causing a lot of Yo-Yo dieting, I now feel so much more confident in my own and my family's diet and health. Nutrition has always been very important to me, but also a struggle. This has been a really easy to follow, very informative course and I'm now excited to be starting the Practical course so I can help as many other people as possible

The Foundation Academy was incredible science focussed and went into far more detail about utrition than I had anticpated and sparked my love and interest now into the power of sleep. Here's to me posting another in a year when I pass the Practical Academy.
