What is a Sports & Fitness Nutrition Specialist?

For years within the field of Fitness and Nutrition, patients seeking to better their physical health would have to go to many separate healthcare professionals. These separate professionals included Dietitians, Personal Trainers, and Nutritionists. This would be not only time-consuming but expensive! Having to go to multiple professionals was mainly due to the idea of the Scope of Practice. One healthcare professional could not overstep their bounds when giving care or advance to patients,. Advice is limited to the area you are directly trained in. For example, a Dietitian could not give the patient advice on physical exercises as could a fitness specialist and vice versa. What the Sports & Fitness Nutrition Specialist allows for is, a healthcare professional that is trained in Fitness and Nutrition. This program gives you knowledge of physical components to health and from a nutritional standpoint as well.
