A healthy and well balanced nutrition program—combined with an appropriate exercise and training regimen—is the foundation for developing optimal health, fitness and success in sports. However, sports nutrition is a complex—and often times confusing—area of study and with a vast amount of information and misinformation available in the popular press.
As a result, there is a desperate need for a credible resource that individuals can rely on to provide research-based information regarding basic and advanced nutritional concepts.
As a result of this dilemma, EAS and the NSCA have joined forces to address a common objective: educate strength and conditioning professionals, coaches, and athletes on the importance of proper nutrition when striving to attain optimal performance results.
In the NSCA Sports Nutrition Education Program, you will learn the latest scientific research and arm yourself with critical knowledge to educate your athletes and clients with the vital information required to fuel performance, improve fitness levels, and maintain health.
