    Nutrition is an essential topic for all fitness professionals to understand due to its importance in energy production and health. Possessing a thorough grasp of dietary concepts and their application then allows these individuals to be able to effectively guide the diets of their clients who seek optimum performance and improved health and well-being.

    The Level 3 Award in Nutrition for Physical Activity qualification provides the knowledge and skills to be able to safely and effectively offer nutritional guidance to healthy clients. The course covers the underpinning science of nutrition, discussing the fundamental macro and micronutrients and the physiology of digestion. It also delves into national food guidelines, vitamin, mineral and protein supplementation, hydration, weight management approaches, and modern dietary systems, including the Paleo Diet and Ketogenic Diet.
