Level 3 Nutrition Supplements for Sport and Exercise Performance
Join thousands of nutrition graduates working with some of the country's leading gyms and health clubs, helping to support clients with their nutritional goals.
The Level 3 Nutrition Supplements to Support Sport and Exercise Performance is an exclusive HFE programme that has been specifically created to provide an evidence-based learning experience for those wanting to optimise their sport and exercise nutrition strategy.
Exercise and nutrition professionals will inevitably encounter clients who are keen to learn more about how nutritional supplements can support their sport or exercise ambitions, and may in fact already be using a range of supplements to support their training. With so many different products available, and much variability with regards to the quality of the same supplement products, it’s essential that the modern exercise professional has a sound, evidence-based understanding of nutritional supplements and how they can support sport and exercise performance.
The global sale of dietary and/or sports supplements is a multi-billion-pound market. According to data published by Wunsch (2020), in 2018 the worldwide sale of sports nutrition supplements was valued at 50.84 billion U.S dollars and by 2023, these sales are estimated to reach 81.5 billion U.S. dollars. Sports supplements are big business for manufacturers and retailers and it is worth considering this when considering the marketing claims of the supplement manufacturers. They cannot and should not be relied upon!
Our Level 3 Nutrition Supplements to Support Sport and Exercise Performance course has been specifically created by a team of sports scientists and doctors to present to you the evidence-based facts about the most widely used and credible nutrition supplements. This programme has been specifically designed to go beyond what is taught in any other programme, and provides the ideal supplement (sorry we couldn’t resist) to our Level 4 Sport and Exercise Nutrition Coach programme.
