Sports Nutrition: Certification 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 fitness 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!
