Clients often need a fusion of both nutrition and exercise programming in order to achieve the results they desire. Whether your client wants to gain muscle, lose fat, or live healthily, their limiting factor usually lies beyond their exercise training program. Poor nutrition is what holds clients back. Good nutrition will feed muscle and shed fat. It’s what will improve nearly every measurable health marker. Good nutrition is what will get your clients the bodies they never thought they could have.

Combined with – and often as a result of this – also many people struggle with the motivation associated with making the necessary lifestyle changes related to diet and physical activity. This study program is designed to enhance your expertise in both of these areas – dietary guidance and motivational psychology – and gives you unique competence to work with your customers in a comprehensive way.


Participation in the practical collections is compulsory, as is the 3 week practice period. You can choose to practice a practice at a fitness centre that you are already affiliated with or have your own appointment with, or have been awarded a training placement through Fitness Academy Europe’s affiliates. We are flexible on the implementation so that all students get their practice adapted to their work situation.
