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!
