Does anybody know much about other nutritional cert programs? I have a friend who is looking at programs through ISSA, AFPA, and Precision Nutrition. I tried to convince her to go though ISSN but she wants to look at all her options and I don’t know that much about other programs. I want to offer good advice! TYA
I got my PN1 a while back. It really seems to cater more towards personal trainers who want to be able to give their clients sound nutritional guidance (versus doing stupid crap like running 800 calorie challenges). It’s good for some basic nutrition knowledge, but not THAT in depth in the grand scheme of things. Also, if your friend is interested in sports nutrition specifically that certification only scratches the surface. However–it is a great course for perspectives on how to actually work WITH clients.
