Our mission is to ensure the sustainable prosperity of the sports nutrition profession.
Currently operating in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Asia and Europe, we are the only non dietetic professional body responsible for establishing and standardising best practices in Sports Nutrition.
We also provide education and Certification for Personal Trainers, Exercise Physiologists, Online Coaches & Exercise/Sports Scientists, and Clinical Nutritionists looking to add Sports Nutrition service provision to their insured scope of practice.
Our advisory board of leading researchers, practitioners, insurers and global underwriting firms review and update our content every year based on the latest research and insurance.
What Is Sports Nutrition?
Sports Nutrition is the practice (non medical) in nutrition of improving or changing body composition, managing and changing weight gain or loss, and improving performance. A sports nutritionist develops personalised nutrition plans that take into account their individual needs, training goals and personal goals.
The Problem We Are Solving
We help prevent the unregistered practice of nutrition. In turn, this reduces the amount of people who can get hurt by incorrect nutrition advice, as well as reducing the number or professionals that get sued.
Who We Are
We are the first (and currently the only) professional body to standardise the practice in Sports Nutrition globally in an all-inclusive manner. You can see our advisory board here.
What We Do
We establish a minimum standard of education, experience requirements that coincide with levels of Accreditation as a Sports Nutritionist
Why We Do It
To improve the quality and experience of the public, athletes and sporting teams with their nutrition, as well as improving the standard of the fitness and nutrition industries. Prior to our establishment, there were no standards in Sports Nutrition (outside of the small exclusive Sports Dietetic fields).
To improve the nutrition experience of the world through education, regulation and the ongoing maintenance and improvement of standards.
We want to have an industry and world where people receive sound and safe advice from nutrition professionals, and the public are equipped with the knowledge to know who and where to turn to for this information.
Values To The Public & Members
We are commitment to an ongoing process of innovation, responsibility, integrity and collaboration.
Access to legitimate undergraduate Sports Nutrition education is uncommon, and as a result there are a number of professionals who have not completed all the relevant subjects and relevant degree programs required to register without further study.
Once education standards have been met we focus on the regulation of the professional members via annual audits, ongoing education with 6 month refresher programs and annual CPD.
Why This Is Important
As a personal trainer or exercise physiologist, many short course providers will only cover you for 'advice' which is not prescriptive and sets you up for legal risks.
