About this course

Exercise is essential, we all know that. Getting the most out of every exercise program ensures your patients are getting maximum benefits for their efforts.

Your patients have access to a huge amount of information from magazines, friends and the internet. Unfortunately, much of this well-meaning material is inaccurate and plain wrong. Natural and integrative clinicians need to be a reliable source of solid advice on exercise nutrition and training.

Sports nutrition science has greatly advanced over the last 5 years and has changed much of what we thought was good practice. New information substantially advances our understanding of how to increase muscle mass, improve performance and maximise the benefits of all exercise.

This Masterclass will give you the skills to reliably advise the weekend warrior, right up to the elite athlete. The full program of the Masterclass is below and we will cover every aspect of nutritional requirements for exercise.
What you receive:
  • Clear protocol explanations from some of the world's top practitioners
  • Clinical pearls for improved practice results
  • Access to your audio and video recordings via the App Store
  • A downloadable PDF of the presenter’s slides
  • Links to all referenced research papers and useful clinical handouts
  • Access to the community hub where you can get answers to your questions
  • A 30-day money back guarantee

From this course you will

  • Nutrition for endurance
  • Nutrition for strength
  • Hydration strategies
  • Ergogenic aids
  • Muscle building strategies
  • Special needs for vegetarians and vegans
  • Managing amenorrhoea, anorexia and anaemia

    In addition to the nutritional discussions, we have Blake Worrall-Thompson, a highly experienced Personal Trainer giving us and explaining his programs for increasing endurance, improving strength and increasing muscle mass.
