This course provides 12 months' access to online training materials that cover numerous aspects of the relationship between nutrition and sports. The course materials survey food groups and the different ways in which the body makes use of them during exercise. Other modules detail the energy requirements of specific types of sport and provide suggestions for optimising nutrition to aid recovery. If participants pass a final online exam, they are awarded a Fitness Training Company certificate in Sports Nutrition, and those wishing to pursue the subject further can then opt to work towards a Diploma in Sports Nutrition for a £149 supplement.
