    Practical Nutrition for Sports Medicine and Fitness Professionals concentrates on the use of regular dietary means of improving performance nutrition. Working in tandem with the e-book Practical Nutrition for Sports Medicine and Fitness Professionals, this course arms sports medicine and fitness professionals with the knowledge to help clients achieve their goals through proper nutrition.

    In this online course, developer Lisa Burgoon, a registered dietitian and board-certified specialist in sport dietetics, presents practical advice on sport nutrition for athletic trainers, physical therapists, and other fitness professionals who work with athletes, coaches, parents, and fitness clients. The course covers guidelines on intake of calories, carbohydrate, protein, fat, and hydration for active individuals. It also covers meal planning and the sport drinks, bars, gels, and supplements available in today’s market. The course concludes with recommendations for educating, screening, and referring clients, guided by an understanding of the practitioner’s scope of practice.

Embedded links and tools direct participants to online resources that will keep them abreast of changes in dietary regulations and help them educate their clients.
