Personal trainers, strength coaches or nutritionists whom need a step by step scientific approach to help coach their clients and athletes to higher levels of results than ever before.

This course is delivered via a combination of interactive videos, slides and textbook. The average student takes approximately 10-16 hours to complete this course. It would be considered a two day event if this was done in person.

Yes of course you can! About 10% of our overall students are people whom are doing this for their own personal development and fitness knowledge. Having some prior knowledge of health and fitness does help, however everyone has to start somewhere!

All of our students get access to their online course for the life of the course as long as it is active, so that you can refer back to it at any time. Any superseded updates however you will need to pay for. This usually occurs every few years, however as a previous student you are entitled to special offers and discounts.

They are true or false and increase in difficulty as you progress through the course.

You cannot progress through each module unless you pass all the questions with a perfect score. Other online providers are not as high, but our point of difference is we are looking for quality first.

Our objective is to build industry leading personal trainers and coaches, so you don’t pass you don’t proceed, however you are given an unlimited amount of chances to pass so don’t worry if you fail the first time, you can make it up with more study and / or contacting our student support team!

The Performance Nutrition Course (PNC) is an introductory course to diet prescription, whereas the Science of Nutrition expands upon the principles of this course in great depth and gives you a broader range of information across multiple topics.

We created the PNC off the back end of conducting over 200,000 personal training and consulting sessions with clients and athletes over the last decade, as our online learning methods for achieving such drastic, world leading results in health and fitness.

The PNC is also a recognized international qualification that we have taught to over 10,000 fitness professionals alone around the world since 2014.

Now in terms of how we recommend layering your learning with our nutrition courses, we recommend the following:

  • Introduction to Nutrition: The Science of Nutrition as step 1
  • Mastering your Nutrition: Performance Nutrition Coach Level 1 as step 2
  • Nutrition for special populations: Training the Physique Athlete as step 3
  • Becoming a global nutrition leader: Performance Nutrition Coach Level 2 as step 4

This progression model, doing all four courses would be akin to the learning found in doing a diploma of nutrition at only a fraction of the time and cost. 

Also, as a certified Performance Nutrition Coach you will gain access to insurance for dietary program design, something you can promote as a massive USP (unique selling proposition) to your clients and athletes alike!

In closing, we recommend you do all 4 courses over a 12-18 month period if you are serious about truly becoming an industry leading personal trainer, nutritionist or strength coach!

Yes you sure do, you also get added to our global trainer directory of Clean Health Fitness Institute certified personal trainers and coaches, the world’s leading fitness professionals!

As mentioned above, you are given an unlimited opportunity to redo the online exam, so don’t stress if you don’t pass straight away. Our online student support team is there to help guide you to success!

Yes, this course earns you the equivalent of 1.8 CEUS with NASM / AFAA

We have tried to have this course accredited with as many global governing bodies as possible, however sometimes due to the information that some require we have not chosen to proceed. Our current international partners include:

  • AFAA – Aerobics and Fitness Association of America
  • NASM – National Academy of Sports Medicine

With many more partnerships currently underway, so that you are able to maintain your CEU’s or CEC’s where relevant. 

In summary however, our mindset is success leaves clues, so even if this is not registered with your own local governing body this should not stop you from learning.
