WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

The PFS PERSONAL TRAINER WITH NUTRITION is the most comprehensive course on the Irish market. Our teaching programme is built on the foundation of the experience and research of our tutors, who have been working in the fitness industry for more than 10 years. It is created to help health and fitness professionals deliver tailored programmes their future clients will require to live a healthy life style.

During the course not only, you will gather the knowledge that enables you to train people one to one, you will also learn many different training techniques and principles of assisting your clients with professionalism.

A personal trainer’s role includes designing, implementing, and evaluating exercise/physical activity programmes for apparently healthy and low-risk adult populations by collecting and analysing client information to ensure the effectiveness and safety of personal exercise programmes. A personal trainer should also actively encourage potential clients/members to participate in and adhere to regular exercise/physical activity programmes, employing appropriate motivational strategies to achieve this.

The PFS FITNESS NUTRITION ADVISER® course will give our students a broad understanding of Nutrition.  The course will touch on crucial areas including nutrients and the digestive system, weight control, and management, diets for various populations.

This is a huge opportunity to expand on the services you offer as a trainer; by fully understanding these components you can advise your clients on how to achieve amazing results. This course will enable students to advise clients on their eating habits to make small adjustments to their body weight and composition. This course does not enable students to advise any clients that have any underlying medical conditions or obese clients; this advice must be given by a fully qualified Dietician.

If you want to have the full scope of knowledge to succeed as a Personal Trainer or if you have a keen interest in Nutrition the PFS Fitness Nutrition Advisor is an absolute must-have certification.
