Calling all Fitness Pros: How to Help Your Clients Train Better with Nutrition Advice

CSNN National Page > Calling all Fitness Pros: How to Help Your Clients Train Better with Nutrition Advice
You want to help your clients eat, move, and live better.

 As a fitness professional, you know nutrition is important for performance and for a healthy body transformation. Personal trainers know best how training impacts your client’s nutrition requirements. But, how do you become a personal trainer that’s qualified to give nutrition advice?

Why Nutrition is Important in Personal Training

Food provides the energy the body needs to train longer and harder. Healthy eating can:

  • Enhance performance
  • Delay onset of fatigue
  • Improve focus and concentration
  • Help maintain a healthy immune system
  • Support muscle repair and recovery


Can Personal Trainers Give Nutrition Advice?

You know you can’t out-exercise a poor diet or lifestyle. If you’re going to talk about nutrition, you really need to know what you’re talking about.


How Training Affects Your Nutritional Requirements

Similar to a vehicle, a body needs fuel to move. But, what type of fuel is optimal for the body? The obvious answer is macronutrients (protein, fats, carbohydrates) and micronutrients (minerals, vitamins, antioxidants). However, there’s a lot more to it than that.

Everyone has unique nutritional needs!

Training with weights?

You’ll need to consider your protein intake to help your muscles recover.



Certain nutrients are in greater demand during various trimesters.


Working out and over 40?

Metabolic changes with age mean optimal training requires slightly different eating strategies.



Want to Give Nutritional Advice to Your Clients?

Think about the difference you’ll make in your clients’ results when you develop practitioner skills that enable you to design personalized, effective food strategies, that fit into a holistic lifestyle.


It’s possible – in the comprehensive curriculum of the Nutrition Program.
