Sports Nutrition: The Certification That Every Fitness Professional Should Have

           Sports Nutritionist Certification

           We have all heard it time and time again, “You are what you eat.” Still, this is only a very basic outlook to a bigger picture. To truly optimize your clients' training programs, a certification in sports nutrition is a must. You know that correct nutrition is one of the most valuable and long-lasting assets that you can teach your clients.

            With ASFA’s sports nutrition qualification, you will learn the importance of meal frequency, macronutrient ratios, nutritional aspects to improve a client’s performance and more. Without a sports nutrition certification, you may not be giving your clients all that they deserve or expect from their trainer. Understanding how nutrition affects sports performance is essential for any well-educated fitness professional.

            Being well-qualified and understanding the different nutritional needs of athletes, will allow you as a trainer, to provide a superior service to your client. Someone who is unmotivated for their morning session with you could just be lacking in the necessary carbohydrates to keep them awake and focused. Watching a client achieve a new goal or higher level of fitness can be the most rewarding aspect from your sports nutrition qualification. A sports nutrition certification will allow you to feel comfortable advising clients and athletes about the affect of nutrition on their performance.
