I am currently taking the Precision Nutrition Certification and I am finding that I like the layout of the information, testing structure and the general nutritional information that they present. The program is taking me more than just a weekend to complete. It is taking me a few months. Will this make me a nutritionist? Absolutely NOT! Precision Nutrition teaches us to refer to a medical professional whenever it is needed. Since exercise and nutrition go hand in hand, it is great to have a basic nutrition knowledge base as a group ex professional and a trainer.
That being said, I think that it has sparked an interest for me to take more nutrition courses and find out more about how and what my clients are eating. The program has also encouraged me to venture out of the fitness field and find more coaching resources to inspire and guide my clients. I do not think that I will be putting the PN credential after my name, however, the cert is making me a more educated trainer and that is one of the reasons that we take CECs, right?
