1. The 80/20 Rule  

Online sports & performance nutrition coaching is now the fastest-growing niche in the fitness world today. With the demand for sports nutrition in the West exceeding 25% growth in 2021, and up to 45% in Asia, the demand and consumption of sports nutrition knowledge, is the fastest-growing market in wellness and fitness.

80% of results in fitness, body composition, performance, and recovery is often based on nutrition, and 20% are based on the exercise itself. Of course, correct exercise is important!

Fact: However the synergy and compounding effect of a quality science-backed nutrition program will yield far greater results, also in a shorter period of time than exercise alone. Always remember, “Your Abs Are Made in The Kitchen, Not In The Gym“!

2. Real Science over Bro Science  

Understanding sports nutrition is important, but ensuring you are getting the most up-to-date sports nutrition is critically important.  Not all courses and certifications online are based on the latest science, many influencers online use “bro-science”, which may not yield the results you are looking for and may even be dangerous to experiment with.

All the Global Performance Nutrition Institute (GPNi®) courses are based on the very latest research journals, as well as the authors are experts themselves. All courses are created and taught by multiple Ph.D. experts in sports nutrition.  The GPNi® lectures are created by those that did the research themselves on sports nutrition. These experts are the pioneers, the researchers where sports nutrition science originated from. GPNi® is the official partner of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN), and all courses work alongside their globally recognized certifications, the PNE Level-1 with the ISSN-SNS, and the PNE Level-2 Masters, with the ISSN-CISSN.   

True science is KEY if you are looking to upgrade your own physique, and that of your clients, friends, or family members.  Always ensure your certification is not just created by so-called experts, but created by the leading experts and organizations in the field of sports nutrition science! 

Fact: GPNi® courses also are upgraded by the GPNi® panel of experts, 2-3 times a year, to ensure they are the MOST up-to-date in sports nutrition science.

3. Online Friendly – Do it Anytime Anywhere  

Fitness coaching can be a challenge when you are looking to coach online. Sports nutrition coaching however can be done anytime and from anywhere in the world – as long as you have a good internet connection.  If you are a coach looking to offer more services than what you already do, and looking to do more online, then getting a quality sports nutrition qualification will enhance what you offer and give you that “Edge” you are looking for.    

For the past 19 years, many thousands have been certified globally and in multiple languages. With the Sports Nutrition Specialist (ISSN-SNS) and Certified Sports Nutritionist (CISSN), many have transitioned their career and grown to be well-respected online sports nutrition coaches. The GPNi® offers globally recognized certifications in the form of online education and courses. This allows you to study anytime, from anywhere.  

You will need to gain more practical experience than a qualification alone. Check with your local country regulatory on what you can and cannot do as a nutrition coach. However, being internationally certified and recognized with elite certification is a key foundation you must have to begin!

4. Internationally & University Recognized 

Choosing a qualification that is globally recognized is critical. Not all certifications and courses offered online are internationally recognized. On top of that, GPNi® offers certification in multiple languages, “truly” making it an international certification.
