As a Personal Trainer you have access to your clients for only a few hours per week, limiting the effect you can have with them. By offering nutrition coaching as an additional service alongside your exercise coaching you open the door to far better results with clients, leading to better testimonials and more clients over time. Nutrition Coaching is also something you can offer as a separate service, enabling you to enter the online marketplace

Nutrition coaching should always be sold as a stand-alone product or package within a business, and so those who aren’t personal trainers are just as capable of offering a nutrition coaching service as those who are. If you have no interest in working with people in a gym environment but want to help change lives through health and nutritional management then this course can help you do just that.

This is a really common sentiment, but it's extremely understandable for two reasons.

  • Biology is hard
  • Biology is often taught in a way that isn't very engaging

We can't promise that the more in depth anatomy and physiology on our course is easy, but we can promise that we make it as engaging as possible, deliver it in multiple different styles, limit it to only what you NEED to know, and are continually on hand to help and support your understanding. Our course is a million miles away from "read this in a book then recite it in an exam or you fail" so don't worry if you don't consider yourself to be scientifically minded.

The barrier is almost always in the teaching, not in the student, and we make it our mission to support you however you need us to.
