Q: What nutrition services can I legally provide to my clients as a personal trainer/coach? 

  • Check your local laws and legislations from the local regulating body in your state, province, city, or country to get clarity on whether or not nutrition advice/services are a regulated practice. That way, you can make an informed decision on what nutrition services you’re able to deliver.

  • Pursue a nutrition certification from an accredited body like Precision Nutrition ACE, or NASM to level-up your skills and knowledge around nutrition coaching. 

  • Consider partnering with a qualified professional according to your local laws and legislations such as a local Dietician or Registered Nutritionist to deliver nutrition services that are beyond your scope. 

If you are not certified, offer nutrition guidance instead. Here are some ideas on ways you can inspire your clients to start thinking about their nutrition habits and how you can help them with some guidance.
