This is an excellent course to enrol in if you are interested in working with people in a counselling capacity where you need knowledge of general human nutrition, children's nutrition (including expectant mothers and infants), therapeutic nutrition, nutrition for weight loss and weight maintenance or even sports nutrition.

PERSONAL TRAINING ONLINE COURSE

Build the Skills Necessary to be a Personal Trainer

A Personal Trainer is more often than not a self employed fitness leader who works one on one with clients, providing services that are more in depth and often with a broader scope than what a typical gym based fitness leader might offer. In most countries, there are no legal requirements for being a personal trainer; however, there can certainly be risks and legal liability to consider if you are not properly skilled at what you do. A course such as this will take you well beyond the level of training that an average fitness leader will receive. Amongst other things, this course incorporates Life Coaching training which is recognised through the Association of Coaching.
