What can I do upon completion of the Level 3 award in nutrition?

Our nutrition courses for personal trainers allow you to deliver bespoke programmes for a range of clients, allowing you to progress your career. Once you finish the training, you can support client goals in numerous ways. Let’s take a look at them.

  • Provide weight loss courses and training

    Research published by the House of Commons Library shows that obesity rates continue to increase in the UK, with many people failing to find the right balance between dietary habits and exercise.

    While personal training professionals can help clients lose weight through exercise and general dietary advice, you can provide a more bespoke experience. From utilising nutritional information to providing courses at fitness events, you can build a successful career as a trainer.

  • Provide sports nutritional advice

    Athletes have diverse needs, but diet is one of the most crucial areas of their success. Whether it’s preparing for sports or fitness events or post-workout nutrition, you’ll help them find the right combination of proteins, fibres, carbs and vitamins.

    Working with professional athletes might mean following specific nutritional protocols, and the right fitness qualifications can help you advance your career.

  • Work with special groups

    Nutritional courses for personal trainers also allow you to provide classes for older adults and people with unique needs. Being able to develop fitness programmes and combining them with your nutritional knowledge means you’ll be in demand and can specialise.

    For example, childhood obesity is a growing problem in the UK, and early education can help young people make the right choices later on in life.

    There’s also the opportunity to support vegans and vegetarians who have unique dietary requirements and might not utilise nutrition support without the right plan.

  • Become self-employed

    If you’re interested in professional development and want to diversify your career options, there are plenty of opportunities to open your own gym or become an independent nutrition coach. Many people search for an online nutrition coach, UK based and starting your own business gives you more flexibility.

    Whether developing weight loss courses or teaching people how to access credible nutrition information, you can make a lot of money working from home.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much can I earn upon completing the Level 3 nutrition course?

How much you earn depends on the courses you take and the certifications you gain. Many of our students enjoy a successful career across health centres and weight loss clinics. Generally, a trainer with nutritional knowledge can charge between £25 and £40 hourly for one-to-one diet consultations.

If you combine nutritional support with personal training, you could earn £80 an hour. So, as you can see, the earning potential is massive.

Who should take a personal trainer nutrition course?

Our course is ideal for qualified personal trainers, sports coaches and anyone in the fitness industry who wants to understand nutrition in more detail. As a Level 3 certification, you should be qualified up to Level 2, but some people do the course without other certifications.

However, a Level 2 Gym Instructor qualification will help you navigate the modules easily as you’ll already have personal training knowledge.

How long does the course take?

It depends on how often you study and whether you’re working full-time. In most cases, students complete the course within two to four weeks.

Can I work and learn at the same time?

Our general and sports nutrition courses are home study-based for independent learning. We recommend you spend 6-10 hours a week on your course because it’s essential to understand obesity prevention and circumstances that might impact a person’s weight.

I’ve never studied from home before. How do I know I’ll have support?

Our online courses don’t just provide you with essential knowledge about fitness and nutrition; they give you all the tools you’ll need to build a successful career. Through interactive e-learning and a commitment to provide you with the best experience possible, we’re a training provider that puts you first.

Our expert tutors are always available to offer support and guidance, so while you won’t be in the classroom, you won’t miss out on a full learning experience.
