Overview

The Fitness Nutritionist Specialist program blends nutritional science and practice in order to allow program graduates to successfully guide clients toward a better body through proper nutrition. In addition to the fundamentals of nutritional science, the curriculum includes a comprehensive approach to establishing a nutritional practice that includes how to prepare, collect and evaluate preliminary information, offer nutrition and supplement suggestions, set goals, monitor outcomes, make adjustments, and provide continuing ongoing support, all within the professional’s defined scope of practice.

Students learn the science behind proper nutrition and the art of applying the science as a nutrition coach. Topics include the anatomy and physiology of digestion, metabolism, energy transfer and balance, and the structure and function of macronutrients and micronutrients.

Practical components include nutritional goal setting, collecting and analyzing client information, structuring an appropriate nutrition plan based on client level and goals, outcome-based nutrition coaching, and practical plans to help clients overcome common challenges.
