What Does It Mean To Earn Your Industry Certification As A Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach?

Personal Trainers work with individual clients or small groups – typically in a gym, fitness center, or in clients’ homes. They evaluate their clients’ current fitness levels, personal goals, and skills, develop personalized training programs, and monitor clients’ progress. Nutrition Coaches work with the general population to facilitate healthy eating behaviors and empower their clients to take responsibility for their own health.

To be a successful Nutrition Coach, individuals must possess knowledge of both nutritional science and behavior change strategies. It’s this knowledge of behavior change that makes Personal Trainers great candidates for Nutrition Coach roles.

With a nutrition coaching certification, fitness professionals can take their expertise to the next level. The combination of these roles offers increased earning potential, the ability to offer a more holistic fitness and health skillset, and the knowledge to fully address clients’ fitness and nutritional needs – to name just a few.


This industry certification ensures individuals can:

  • Gain knowledge of medical terminology, disease processes, anatomy, and physiology.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the soft skill expectations of an allied healthcare professional.
  • Master health and fitness topics, including nutrition, program design, human movement science, and fitness assessments.
  • Learn and practice teaching, customer service, and first aid skills.
  • Develop organizational and communication skills.
