You may coach clients who seem similar...

Like a team made up of players of the same age, sex, and competition level.

But with careful observation and good conversations, you’ll start to notice each player is vastly different—and diverse people may need diverse diets.

This means a big part of your job as a coach is personalizing programs to consider your clients’ unique needs.

But with so many potential factors that a coach could consider—personalization can feel overwhelming…

How do you know what matters?
How do you know when it matters?
How do you know what to do first? 

The good news is we’ve got your back.

In How to Create Personalized Nutrition Programs for Athletes, we’ll go beyond theory and teach you how to personalize for performance through a logical, repeatable process that’s client-centered, uses systematic decision making, and is science-backed.

When you can think and coach in more sophisticated, nuanced ways, addressing what your clients really need in their messy, complex lives:

  • You’ll create better, more effective nutrition coaching programs
  • Your clients will be more likely to actually follow your programs
  • Your clients will then get better results—whether that’s winning their competition or just winning life

This course gives you the tools, techniques, and advanced coaching skills to do just that.
