Nutrition for Sport and Exercise Performance
When it comes to your clients, upping their fitness will be their number one priority. From losing weight to improving strength or appearance, being able to help them in every aspect is vital to ensure you can offer the best service, which in turn will help to bring new clients in.
Understanding nutrition is key to this, and for those working as a personal trainer or even a nutritional adviser, our Nutrition for Sport and Exercise Performance course will provide you with a deeper understanding to help support your clients with their performance-based goals.
Once completed, this course will lead to the Active IQ Level 3 Award in Nutrition for Sport and Exercise Performance.
Why nutrition is important?
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.
