ONLINE SPORTS NUTRITION WORKSHOP
This online workshop, Nutrition for Sports, Exercise & Weight Management: What Really Works—and Why with sports dietitian Nancy Clark and exercise physiologist John Ivy PhD gets great reviews! Registrants learn what they want, plus more.
The content is valuable for anyone with an interest in nutrition for performance. We target the information to dietitians, exercise leaders, personal trainers, coaches, and other health professionals, and simultaneously address the needs of athletes themselves. Both Nancy and John are respected as teachers who have the ability to translate complex scientific subjects into “how to” information to help active people win with good nutrition.
If you are a dietitian or health professional, you’ll learn what you want to know about how to effectively teach the nutrition and exercise message. You’ll gain skills on how to better help your clients optimize their energy and athletic performance, as well as invest in future health. If you are an athlete, you’ll learn how to be faster, stronger, and perform better.
Topics include the science of training and conditioning; exercise as a way to curb the aging process; protein, supplements, and ergogenic aids; sports nutrition counseling tips; and weight management strategies, including how to correct dieting-and-exercise gone awry. Sports nutrition entrepreneurs who want to start their own businesses will also learn invaluable business tips from Nancy’s extensive experiences with her private practice.
This is an online version of their popular on-site/live workshop. It is self-paced and available at your convenience. You will see the PowerPoint image and listen to the voices of Nancy and John. If you want CEUs, you can purchase the workshop from ACE Fitness. Alternatively, on this website, you can take the quiz after each module, receive the certificate of completion, and then petition for CEUs from your professional organization.
