I made the decision to pursue becoming a Certified Nutrition Coach (CNC) to further my education, also to be able to offer more to my clients by being able to share knowledge/information and help them achieve their nutritional and diet goals.
I felt that an important aspect of the service that we can provide to our clients is to have a deep understanding of specific diets and how they can best be applied. As well as helping clients to sift through all of the good and bad diet/nutrition information that is out there so they can make smart decisions for their personal wellness.
When looking at programs, I decided on the CNC program offered by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) because they were one of the leaders in nutrition personal training certifications. It also shared the focus of sports medicine and tailored the course to fit the needs for trainers/coaches to work with athletes, which is a particular interest for me.
Sports medicine interests me because you are working with individuals that are trying to achieve very specific physical/ nutrition goals and I want to help them by designing meals strategies that affect positive change and allow them to train successfully.
Now more than ever there is attention being brought to light over the positive effects of healthy eating and the impact that it can have on our overall health and wellness. Helping clients by providing nutrient packed meals and designing food programs to work with-in their daily routines is very rewarding. After completing this program, I will be able to provide and share more knowledge with my clients to empower them to make the best decisions for their lifestyle.
