The Essentials of Exercise and Fitness Nutrition
FACT: If you can successfully help people change their nutrition habits, you will instantly become 3 to 5 times more effective as a coach. And if you can spare 12 minutes a day for the next 5 days, I'll show you exactly how to do it.
Simply put, nutrition coaching is almost completely missing in the fitness profession today. At Precision Nutrition, we're trying to fix that, both with our professional certification program and with this free, 5-day video course for fitness professionals.
Because there is a simple truth that every fitness professional should know, and it's this...
If a client doesn't change their nutrition, the work they do in the gym will be rendered virtually worthless.
That's not my opinion. That's a fact. And there is plenty of research backing it up. I discuss that research in depth in this course, but to summarize:
In the absence of diet change, exercise coaching has been shown repeatedly to yield as little as half a pound of true fat loss per month.
That's not good.
Nutrition coaching will triple your effectiveness – at least.
The good news is that if you can influence a person to change their nutrition while also working out regularly, you'll be able to generate exponentially better results.
Add nutrition coaching to your toolbox, and you can expect to become 3 to 5 times more effective.
That means that if – like 90% of all clients – a person you're working with is looking for fat loss, they can expect to lose 3 to 5 times more fat if you help them make changes to their diet.
And in this free video course, I'll show you exactly how to do that.
The essentials of exercise and fitness nutrition, in five free video lessons.
To show you how to include the essentials of exercise and fitness nutrition immediately, I've put together this 5-lesson video course. I'll teach you:
- How to integrate nutrition in a health, fitness, or athletic environment
- How exactly to assess someone's nutrition needs
- How to devise a nutrition plan based on that assessment
- What stats to measure and how exactly to measure them
- How to optimize a nutrition plan based on those stats
And I don't just talk about this stuff – I show you how to do it. In fact, I even give you all the forms and resources you need to go and do it right away.
Like this one, a Client Info Questionnaire, one of the 7 forms we use during our initial client assessment with clients.
(We give you the other 6 assessment forms in the course, too.)
In addition to the downloadable resources, each lesson includes a video (about 12 minutes long), an MP3 audio version (in case you want to load it in your iPod), and a transcript (in case you're watching it at work and don't have the headphones handy).
We've tried to make this course better than any nutrition seminar I've ever seen, and I think we've done that. But that's for you to decide. One thing is for sure, though:
This course will make you a better coach.
