8 Module Online Webinar Series

Exercise is essential, we all know that. Getting the most out of every exercise program ensures your patients are getting maximum benefits for their efforts.

Your patients have access to a huge amount of information from magazines, friends and the internet. Unfortunately, much of this well-meaning material is inaccurate and plain wrong. Natural and integrative clinicians need to be a reliable source of solid advice on exercise nutrition and training.

Sports nutrition science has greatly advanced over the last 5 years and has changed much of what we thought was good practice. New information substantially advances our understanding of how to increase muscle mass, improve performance and maximise the benefits of all exercise.

This Masterclass will give you the skills to reliably advise the weekend warrior, right up to the elite athlete. The full program of the Masterclass is below and we will cover every aspect of nutritional requirements for exercise.
