Learn More About This Nutrition Course

Intro

In today’s world, proper diet and nutrition as just a vital as regular exercise when it comes to living a healthier and happier life. It’s also necessary for combating the all-too-prevalent chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes and hypertension. It’s simply not enough to just exercise regularly or to only have a healthy, balanced diet, the two must be effectively combined.

For everyday people, however, understanding what constitutes a healthy diet isn’t always easy or straightforward, nor is actually following the guidelines once they’ve been understood. As a fitness professional looking to change the lives of others, Level 3 Nutrition to Support Physical Activity is an essential qualification.

You’ll develop the skills needed to assess the nutritional practices of others and gain vital knowledge in order to provide practical, real-world, solutions that will improve the dietary habits of your clients.

The course is accredited by YMCA Awards and recognised by CIMSPA. For complete flexibility, all the learning can be completed from the comfort of your own home. Everything you need is provided including a bespoke hard copy and digital manual, mocks exams, unlimited tutor support, and 24/7 access to LES, our innovative Learner Engagement System. Once the learning has been completed, it’s just a matter of taking your final exam.

This nutrition qualification is a mandatory part of the Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training, but it also represents a fantastic CPD opportunity for Pilates instructors, yoga teachers and group exercise professionals looking to expand the range of services they offer to clients.

What You'll Learn

Developing an expert level of nutrition goes above and beyond understanding good fats from bad fats and memorising food groups. Diet and nutrition are so fundamental to healthy living that you need to be able to separate fact from fiction and confidently give clients advice based on evidence.

To help you on your journey, here’s an outline of what you’ll be studying:

  • Digestive system and Carbohydrates

  • Fats and Proteins

  • Water and Micronutrients

  • Popular Nutrition Myths and Diets

  • Healthy Eating Guidelines

  • Weight Management

How You'll be Assessed

The course is assessed in several ways, designed to test and apply your knowledge in a range of practical situations:

  • Workbook

    Covering the principles of nutrition and health and safety considerations

  • Theory Exam

    10 question multiple-choice exam (70% pass mark)

  • Case Study

    Create a seven-day food diary based on your client's habits and produce goals to improve their dietary habits

Entry Requirements

There are no formal entry requirements for this Level 3 Nutrition course. Due to the nature of what you’ll be learning, we do recommend you already have a Level 2 Certificate, ideally in Gym or Exercise to Music.

Above all else you should have a keen interest in nutrition and the burning desire to help your clients improve their dietary habits.

    I have just completed my level 3 Pilates instructor course with HFE and couldn't be happier... My tutor Dani was fantastic, she supported me all the way through and was always available for revision sessions and to keep me on track when I was finding it hard.

    If your happy to learn at your own pace this is the way moving forward. The tutors are there for you as much or as little as needed, if you follow the whole program it works. I've really enjoyed getting on with things as and when I can. My tutor as been fantastic given me loads of additional information that's as helped with how I've hopefully retained the knowledge
