About the Certificate Program

Sports Nutrition is the merger of the two worlds of; Applied Exercise Physiology and Applied Nutrition Sciences, and its ongoing development and innovation. The Certificate in applied Sports Nutrition Program Curriculum is designed by the Association (and reviewed and updated annually based on the latest research and insurance feedback) specifically to meet the underwriting standards for what is deemed minimally required subjects and competencies for a Professional to become eligible to register with their regional association body.

What’s the difference

The difference between traditional Nutrition, and Sports Nutrition in the USA is that except for the Sports Nutrition Association’s Certification, all current recognised undergraduate education is directed at the the clinical treatment and prevention of chronic disease. These undergraduate programs  provide the same level of insurance cover for nutrition as a personal trainer (coach around the Dietary Guidelines). Subjects like the body’s metabolism, interventions for weight gain, weight loss, muscle gain, and muscle reduction aren’t covered in much detail if at all. Which is what the majority of coaches & exercise scientists/physiologists clients want to achieve … and it’s not being taught.

Can you explain how food becomes fuel? Let alone which nutrients fuel specific activities? or optimise recovery from others? Under what conditions do certain nutrients predominate others?

The Certificate in Applied Sports Nutrition is not just about manipulating body composition for a fitness show, or feeling athletes, it covers these thoroughly, but also covers the complete foundations in weight management and applied nutrition concepts.
