Nutrition is important, by eating a balanced diet we are able to maintain a good level of health and wellbeing. In recent years there has been a growing focus placed on our nutritional intake, so much so that it has started to directly impact the food industry.
With the growing focus placed on our nutritional intake, people have become more aware about what they eat. More importantly people have become aware of how food affects their body and mind, something which is highlighted by documentaries such as That Sugar Film.
Put simply we have all become more aware and knowledgeable about our nutritional intake.
When it comes to personal training and wider sports the trend is no different, as the level of spotlight placed on nutritional intake is equal if not more. With sports personalities like David Haye and Jermaine Defoe coming out about their vegan diet and how it’s supplemented if not enhanced their performance, others are following suit in catering their diet towards their end goal, whether it be weight loss, getting stronger or even targeting a specific part of their body for muscle growth.
Aside from vegan diets, other sports stars such as Mo Farah have also been quite vocal about their diets and how it’s helped them to achieve the results they want.
All of this has resulted in a growing demand for personal trainers to have a wide knowledge of nutrition and personal training. More specifically, this has also resulted in people expecting personal trainers to be able to create nutrition plans that are able to enhance their performance, specific to the end goal of the client.
What this has meant for personal training training course providers is that nutrition now needs to be a key module within their courses.
At The Training Room, we offer our Active IQ Level 3 Diploma in Fitness Instructing and Personal Training which consists of two core modules; ‘Active IQ Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing’ and ‘Active IQ Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training’.
Covered within our Active IQ Level 3 Diploma in Fitness Instructing and Personal Training is the core certificate Advanced Nutrition Strategies Module (CPD).
The aim of this certificate is to broaden your understanding of advanced nutrition strategies so that you are able to develop an understanding of elements such as supplementation for aerobic exercise and resistance exercise to carbohydrate loading for an endurance event such as a 5k run.
By the end of our nutrition training certificate you will be able to create nutrition plans that help your client achieve their goals!
Aside from developing your understanding of nutrition our personal trainer course will also ensure that you fully understand what is required of a Personal Trainer, especially from a business perspective as another certificate within our course includes The Training Room Certificate in People and Business.
This module is designed to teach you everything you need to know if you are thinking of opening up your own business in the fitness industry. In this module you will learn to outline your options, identify your competitors and develop client retention schemes, all of which help grow a small business!
