Nutrition coaching… is it for you? Can you legally do it and be within scope of practice? A personal trainer who wants to be authoritative, credible, and stand out among the noise of health coaches and trainers today wants to have knowledge and tools beyond the norm. A degree and certification are not enough. If lab tests about nutrient sufficiency, hormone balance, blood sugar response, and food sensitivities are getting your attention, you’ll want to listen and pay attention to this episode.
This is the future of personal training that results in not only functional movements but functional protocols that balance hormones. It’s not a doctor-only world any more. You can identify and use the right labs with the right customer needs and support change that changes lives. Nutrition coaching that is informative and supportive of change is not necessarily out of scope of practice for a personal trainer. Know what is and isn’t an option for you.
