Course Description

Where Can I Work With An Athletic Nutrition Qualification?

An athletic nutritionist is a nutritionist who works specifically with athletes. These professionals create comprehensive nutritional plans that can boost their clients’ health, optimise their athletic performance and assist them with managing medical conditions as well as recovering from injuries.

When working with individuals, athletic nutritionists start by assessing the athlete’s needs and goals, such as muscle gain or weight loss. After this they devise a dietary strategy, which may be adjusted over time based upon the athlete’s progress and/or their competitions schedule. In addition to assisting individual athletes with meeting their goals, athletic nutritionists may also develop far more general meal plans for groups of athletes, such as players at training camps.
