Nutrition for Sport and Exercise Performance course structure

Food plays a vital role in our health, and while exercise is also key to helping with our health and fitness, it works in tandem with what you eat, making nutrition a huge part of the fitness process.

If your clients are looking to lose weight, this is difficult to do with exercise alone as their diet will play a huge part. And when it comes to physical activity, eating well can have huge benefits, such as:

  • Enabling clients to perform their best
  • Reducing the risk of injury and illness
  • Ensuring the best recovery after exercise

When it comes down to it, the most effective programmes for weight loss, or other performance-based goals, use an equal balance of exercise and nutritional knowledge.

Once you’ve enrolled, your dedicated support tutor will call you to talk you through the online learning portal, course content, and assessment guidelines.

Following this, you’ll work together to set realistic dates for the submission of your online coursework, which you can call or e-mail your tutor about for support, as and when required.

If you have any special learning needs our advisers will be happy to do as much as we can to assist get in touch with us or call us on 0800 999 6664.
