The SPORTS NUTRITION SPECIALIST, Recertification Module course is designed to enhance and further develop the skills and proficiency of a Sports Nutrition Specialist [SNS].   Maintaining a consistent professional standard of proficiency will ensure that SNSs continue to attain the high International standards set by Optimum Health - For Life. The main focus of this Recertification course is to create "growth through knowledge" for Sports Nutrition Specialists [SNS] to continue to meet the every changing challenges that come before them on a DAILY basis.

Everyone knows that proper nutrition is a very important part of ALL physical performance and they have learned that with physical exertion the body requires fuel.  Sports Nutrition Specialists know how to vastly accelerate the positive effects of physical movement with approriate nutrition for ALL physical activity.   They know that people participating in physical activities require the body's systems to perform complex and vigorous sets of interactions in order to work skillfully, hard, and long.   They also know that to receive Optimum Performance from the human body and its' systems that the bodys' fuel must provide the necessary nutrients for performance AND recovery.

SNSs know all too well how people become involved in physical activities and look to "professionals" for information and, unfortunately, until this International Certification became available, those people were unable to find a "professional" that could assist them in attaining "appropriate" nutrition that was specific to their individual needs.   With so many ads, diets, and "magic bullet" concepts being promoted in a myriad of books, magazines, and other media -- it is no wonder they are confused!  Sports Nutrition Specialists give appropriate information that goes far beyond the fads and diets and they create valuable nutritional guidelines that allow their clients to finally succeed at attaining their specific goals!
