NASM, Ace, ISSA and other basic nutrition courses seems to be very basic. I need to find a course that is more advanced for someone who already is very experienced helping clients with nutrition. I don’t have a basic nutrition cert. but I don’t want to be wasting my time paying for, and studying things I already know. Any suggestions on how to approach this situation?
Wow! Thanks for all the great help everyone! Becoming an RD does sound appealing, but I more recently made the decision to take a break from full on “school” to focus on my business, and to find part time/online certification type work I can get done to further my knowledge and credentials. Maybe I need to bite the bullet and get back into school for all of this nutritional work. The difficult part about my situation is that I’m still undecided about where I’m looking to end up on my career path. I currently run my own private, in-home/in-gym personal training business, and I’m trying to figure out how to get into the consulting aspect of fitness.
Thanks for letting me vent everyone! Any other suggestions or help are welcome!
