I decided to carry out the Sports Nutrition course with Shaw to aid my nutrition and training. As much as I stick to a clean diet and train every day I needed to know the real details behind my diet and training. The knowledge shared was more than expected for an introductory course, nutrient timing, hydration, carb loading was of special interest. Notes were thorough along with great diagrams, classes were interactive and very enthusiastic! Doing this course has honestly pushed my motivation to a whole new level for upcoming shows, knowing the exact technical reasons behind everything I do from preparation perspective of nutrition and training makes it so much easier and re-warding. Thank you Shaw!
As an active person with a personal interest in living a healthy life, I found Shaw Academy's certificate in sports nutrition to be extremely educational. I am certain that, with my new knowledge and understanding of nutrition, I will be able to achieve my health and fitness goals.
I loved the depth of the information on the Sports & Exercise Nutrition programme, I found the course to be very thorough (probably because I've been able to focus the info on my training for 10km's and half marathon later this year). I found the manuals very handy personally, I like to be able to jot stuff down rather than just on screen. I liked that you could re-visit the lessons, I'm currently a studying Science in Computing: Software Development at the National College of Ireland and my lectures are Monday 6-10 and Wednesday 6-10 so that was very important!
Being involved in the Health & Fitness industry and being a professional sport man or woman is probably one of the most competitive industry’s to be in. Having started my professional rugby career from the age of 18, sport nutrition has been one of the most important factors to keep me ahead of the pack. Through my years of playing in different countries and building experience, I have learned a lot towards the key factors in Sport Nutrition. Applying for the Sport Nutrition course at Shaw Academy was one of the best decisions I made for my Professional Rugby career. The knowledge and facts I gained from the Sport Nutrition course were remarkable. I am very excited to take my sports nutrition to the next level and make a huge step up in my professional rugby career. Thank you to the Shaw Academy for being a true inspiration and huge benefit for the Health and Fitness community.
