Participation in sport and exercise is at an all-time high with more people than ever now participating regularly in both. Interestingly, since the London 2012 Olympic games, sport and exercise participation has grown steadily across almost all sports, with running, cycling, football, swimming and golf being the frontrunners.
Outside of recreational sports, the interest and uptake of mass participation events like marathons, triathlons, duathlons, Spartan Runs and Tough Mudder for example has also risen sharply in recent years. Whether people are looking for new opportunities and challenges to stretch themselves physically, or to raise money for a good cause, the data suggests that the UK population quite literally has an appetite for sport and exercise.
Against the above backdrop, the demand for qualified and competent exercise and nutrition professionals that can provide high-quality, evidence-based nutrition support is high. If you are an exercise professional looking to venture in to the world of sports nutrition, our Level 4 Nutrition to Support Sport and Exercise Performance could be just what you are looking for.
We strongly recommend that you hold a recognised fitness instructor qualification (e.g. gym instructor, exercise to music, personal trainer, Pilates or Yoga teacher) with an Ofqual-approved awarding body (e.g. YMCA Awards, Active IQ, NCFE, Pearson etc).
