Based on almost 15 years of work with nearly 100,000 clients and 50,000 coaching students to date, this 3-day workshop will:
  • give health and fitness professionals a working understanding of time-tested, research-driven core concepts in nutrition coaching.
  • show participants to apply principles of the most up-to-date nutritional science in real life, with real people, in order to help them change and improve their habits, bodies, and performance.
Each day will include lectures, discussions, and hands-on exercises (such as case studies) to apply the information. Participants will complete the workshop with tools and techniques that they can use immediately for themselves or with clients.
