Natalie Dell'Erba is an English Teacher who lives in France! She originally comes from South Africa, but 5 years ago she decided to go to France and stay there for good. She sent us this beautiful video in which she shares her story about how she used to work for 15 years in the pharmaceutical industry. Natalie has high cholesterol, an underactive thyroid and Type 2 Diabetes, and was looking for something that could help her, and others in the same situation. She searched online and found mainly motivational courses, but nothing science based. Finally, she bumped into The Health Sciences Academy. She was amazed by how quickly the Learner Services team responded with the information she had been looking for, and from the moment she signed up with her first course (Nutritional Therapist), she was intrigued from the start and found herself wanting to continue from one module to the next in every given opportunity! Natalie has since carried out several nutritional assessments for her family and recently her second course - Advanced Clinical Weight Loss Practitioner - to learn about what makes people think and do when it comes to food. She loves her learning experience and wanted to share her story with everyone. Thank you Natalie for your video, and what a great thing you're doing!

Marc Cater (UK) recently graduated from The Health Sciences Academy with the Nutritional Therapist course and sent us this super creative video, in which he shares his own learning experience with us! Marc has studied with several online universities in the past. He explains that the most frustrating part of a learning experience is when he, as a student, would send an email to the university and then wait for several days before getting any response... He felt our Learner Services team was the complete opposite. In Marc's words: "they are absolutely superb and will get straight back to students whenever they need help". This in turn allowed him to get stuck in his course and enjoy a very fulfilling learning experience. He also loves how our Research Team keeps everything factual, concise, relevant and up-to-date. Marc just started his own business as a Nutritional Therapist. Very recently he graduated with the course Advanced Dietary Supplements Advisor course, which he feels will complement his new business because it would offer his clients a wider service for help. Marc, lots of success in your new business!

Mirna Sharafeddine (Mimi!) is a Registered Nutritionist who just graduated from The Health Sciences Academy with two courses: Advanced Clinical Weight Loss Practitioner and Advanced Detox Specialist. Mimi has a very touching story she shares with us in this video. During her teenage years, she was obsessed with how she looked. She would feel a strong urge to exercise every time she ate something that she thought was bad, and she suffered from anemia, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances and infections once every 3 months. Mimi even admits that at some points in her life she hated herself. Hers is a story that proves to us that with perseverance and determination, nothing is impossible. Watch this beautiful video and see for yourself how someone who struggled in the past is now a health expert and has succeeded in achieving her goals. Thank you for sharing your powerful success story, Mimi!

Christiaan Zeleny - or Chris, as he prefers to be called - is from Australia. Chris is a degree holder in Applied Science in Sport and Exercise Science and has a Master's Degree in International Health Management. It's therefore not surprising that he shares a strong passion for health and nutrition. He sent us a video message in which he expresses how expensive a university degree can be, but can include many filler subjects that might not be that useful or necessary. His message is to keep learning the latest nutrition science in a field that's constantly evolving, and keep building new life-changing skills (to make a difference to others)! A very powerful message we felt worth sharing with our amazing community. Do you agree with Chris his message? We do. Thanks Chris!

​Katy, a fresh graduate of our Nutritional Therapist course, sent us this inspirational video about how she switched careers, from being a chemistry teacher to becoming a health coach and pursuing her passion in wellness. Today, Katy manages a juice bar inside a gym and has redesigned the juice menu completely with the learnings from her Nutritional Therapist training, to incorporate more healthy options for clients. Katy felt like sharing what worked really well for her. First, how easy it was to use the website and how she felt comfort with the support she received. Second, that the optional printed pack was perfect for her - not only to flip through while learning, but also to use as professional reference after completing the course. Third, Katy works with clients herself and she found the client templates saved her enormous time as everything was ready for her to use. Finally, she recommends the Science Reports which she finds really interesting, well referenced and really up to date. Wow, how amazing. Thanks Katy for sharing your insights with everyone, and how great it is for us to see yet more stories surface about how following your passion can lead to success!​

Kiana especially liked the fact that each module is loaded with tons of information, the design of the course, how the information was provided in small bites that made it easy to absorb the knowledge. She also loves the lifetime access to all the course materials, because it gives her the liberty to go back and consult the templates in case she needs to double-check what information she could provide to her clients.

Karen Rowe (US) graduated as a Nutritional Therapist from The Health Sciences Academy. It was her first time studying this topic and she was pleasantly surprised by her experience. She found her course very professional, informative and loved the links within the course materials to read further. Karen’s daughter had Type 1 Diabetes and she explains that having a child with a life-threatening disease is really overwhelming, and that you need to learn about what you can do. Karen and her family first started to count the carbohydrates content of every meal, and going through recipes. They then resorted to pre-packaged food, because the nutrition information was on the packaging itself. They were eating better, feeling better and her daughter’s blood glucose level was so much better. Having gone through this experience with her daughter, she constantly told herself that she needs to do it for somebody else. That was when she joined The Health Sciences Academy. Karen shares how grateful she is that she discovered her course, and instead of asking herself why this disease came to her daughter she feels she may have experienced this for a reason, to help other families who have the same problem like Diabetes. So Karen sent this incredible video just to thank The Health Sciences Academy for helping her make such a positive difference in their lives. She hopes to take more courses and help more families. What a powerful and very informative story, Karen. With this video, we hope that others can learn from Karen’s experience, and feel inspired to change their own and their family’s too!

Kat felt that her courses with us are comparable to a degree level, because of the high quality, relevance and detail provided. Kat loves how she was able to read further with the suggested readings and articles that are provided, which gave her an additional understanding. She liked how interactive the courses are, and the fun she had while learning. The best part for Kat were the practical handouts that she could use in with her own clients in the real world.

One thing that he absolutely loves was not having to make his own handouts, because the ones provided are impressive. Alex felt more confident about being an expert, because of the accreditations and international recognition (like CYQ and CPD). He described our Learner Services team as “absolutely excellent”; when he had a couple of questions at 11pm he once got a response within 10 minutes.

Good luck with your new business!

The reason I decided to study with The Health Sciences Academy was because I am actively involved in sport and athletics, I am a runner and have been running for over 15 years.


I have completed a number of races over the years (5k,10k,10mile Half Marathon and Marathon) and some foreign races also, my most recent was the Palma Mallorca Marathon.


The Sports and Exercise Nutrition course was a great learning experience. I would recommend it to anyone who may be considering, studying dietary and nutritional supplements for sports persons whether it may be amateur or elite participants.

I am a strong believer in: We are what we eat.


The last 16 years I have done many courses and Diplomas in Nutrition in the UK, Germany and Austria. In my opinion it is very important be to be updated to the latest finding and I always look out for courses, but could not really find what I was looking for until last summer when I came across your website and decided to do the Nutrition Diploma Course with you. As soon as I started the course I found it amazing. I could not stop. I was pleased I bought your printed version of the course which I found extremely useful. I learned so much from your course and use it every single day with my clients, friends and family.


A very big thank you to all who were involved setting up this wonderful course. With all the courses I did over the last 16 years, your course was the very best I ever did and I am looking forward to do one of your others courses very soon. They all look very interesting.


My older son likes sport and as a Christmas present I bought him your Sport Nutrition course. He keeps on telling me it was the best present he ever got.


Please thank all your staff they are all amazing and always helpful.

Been involved in football coaching at youth level for a number of years. I was very aware of the lack of knowledge of Sports Nutrition out there at grassroots level.


After scouting the web I came across The Health Sciences Academy. I enrolled for the Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor certification and from the start I found the layout and the navigation of the site was excellent.


Robert Gillan The Health Sciences Academy

The in depth knowledge of the content was amazing. There were times in the course I found so difficult, but the support from the team is second to none with there help and encouragement got me back on track.


Enjoyed every minute. I would recommend The Health Sciences Academy to all fellow coaches out there.

We are proud of our amazing army of graduates and with their feedback we continue to improve your learning experience!

You guys rock and thank you so much for everything!

Mar 21, 2015 by Hamelin Mitchell, Stay at home mom, Rockland, Ontario Canada

How food can treat so many health problems! That was a huge "A-ha" for me!

I love the materials, the videos, the graphs! Im a very visual-based learner and this helped a ton!!!

You guys rock and thank you so much for everything! I feel like I have a better understanding of nutrition and was getting so confused with all the false info out there on the net. This really helped sort out the truth behind food!


I particularly enjoyed learning about how to properly carb-load.

Mar 18, 2015 by Lydia Bregmen, Doctor, Newton Aycliffe

I now feel more comfortable planning my own nutritional regime and feel as though I can now be better prepared for any event I now sign myself up for. It has been an eye opening course and I am excited to share what I have learnt with friends and family.

I particularly enjoyed learning about how to properly carb-load. Knowing what I now know, I realise I have gone into events completely unprepared, which has likely affected my performance.

I like that you can gradually learn, build up knowledge with each module and can't move on to the next module until you have a good understanding of the module you are currently on.


Lots of key learning and important information both for my health and the health of my family

Mar 17, 2015 by Suzan Snaggs-Wilson, Snag Success, Kitchener, Ontario

A big a-ha for for me was learning that our genetic expression can change and we are not doomed by DNA. I also learned that there was a difference between soluble and non-soluble fibre. I thought all fibre were the same.

Nutritional Therapist was a great course. Lots of key learning and important information both for my health and the health of my family. The overall experience was very smooth, the content was relevant and very professionally presented.

Overall, this was an excellent experience. The program was easy to navigate. I followed the instructions to use Google chrome and had no difficulty. I was even able to access the site via my I-phone and had access to doing my studies on the go or while waiting in a line at the bank.


I especially enjoyed and valued how in depth the course went with phytochemicals, essential nutrients and antioxidants.

Mar 15, 2015 by Amelia Powell, Bar Manager, The Old Spaghetti Factory, Richmond

Honestly every chapter had it's fair share of "a-ha" moments, but I especially enjoyed and valued how in depth the course went with phytochemicals, essential nutrients and antioxidants and how I could easily see where people who were close to me and myself fell short. This course has made me confident that I can make positive changes in peoples lives to help them for the better.


Loved the content and feel I learned some things that I hadn't had explained to me before.

Mar 11, 2015 by Kristi Drennan, Selkirk, Manitoba Canada

Loved learning the vitamin deficiencies, and about DNA and epigenetics. Gives me more power over my own body.

Loved the content and feel I learned some things that I hadn't had explained to me before (I already have done years of research on food!) Also loved that I could do it at my own pace around having a family with small children. I like the ease in which you can do the course from home and you are learning valuable content.

Thanks so much! Really enjoyed this course!


I have successfully adjusted my own diet plan.

Mar 09, 2015 by Maggie McSparron, Civil Servant, Limavady, Co Londonderry, Northern Ireland

I have successfully adjusted my own diet plan to help with my training as a fitness instructor. I have now moved from being a civil servant into the fitness industry full time. I am currently in training to be a Personal Trainer.


I got to see the science behind the importance of balanced and healthy consistent meals.

Mar 09, 2015 by Jeff Bumagat Hidalgo, Student, Anchorage Alaska USA

I learned how fad diets are simply silly. Through the course I got to see the science behind the importance of balanced and healthy consistent meals. My aha moment was realizing that carbs is not what makes me gain excess body fat. Now I'm utilizing carbs in my training correctly with great results.

I enjoyed finding out how to use and manipulate the macronutrients for specific goals. I also enjoyed learning how valuable carbs are when used correctly.

I have been into fitness for a while and the "Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor" course has helped me a lot. I would love to be certified in other aspects of fitness and really get a career going to change peoples health and lives.


It's excellent knowledge set.

Mar 03, 2015 by Angela Rasheed, Wellness Consultant, CLB Consulting, Oshawa, Canada

The videos were great, the course content was excellent and significantly furthered my knowledge base, the handouts and quizzes are excellent, accurate, and very professional. I loved the interactive nature of the lessons and the knowledge database features.

It's excellent knowledge set; interactive qualities; easy to understand lessons; logical progression of information; easy online access; applicability to modern dilemmas and concerns.


It was really astounding to see the simple things that could be signs of deficiencies that could so easily be fixed through diet and supplementation.

Mar 03, 2015 by Shelby Clarke, Cashier, Calgary AB Canada

It was really astounding to see the simple things (like dry skin or increased appetite) that could be signs of deficiencies that could so easily be fixed through diet and supplementation. I absorbed all the information quicker than I thought, and was really able to use it with a bit of my logic to answer health questions that workmates or friends would ask me.

I enjoyed the online feature that you could really take your time or try and power through. I loved how fast but thorough it was. This will really help me with answering questions at my place of work.


Your courses are really great - have enjoyed it so much.

Mar 02, 2015 by Jolande Baker Effendi, Swim Coach, Cape Town

Enjoyed the professional lay outs - client handouts - it's so easy to start up your own business after doing the course, which gives you confidence. One feels supported all the way. Well researched - have done similar courses that have disappointed. Constant reports - keeping updated. All the modules were absolutely great. I have the confidence to start up my own business and want to do more courses through you guys and constantly learn.

Your courses are really great - have enjoyed it so much, starting on a new one - Nutritional Therapist and honestly hope I can find a way to do all your nutritional courses through time.


It has certainly changed my life.

Feb 28, 2015 by Preece Kelly, Animal Assisted Therapy Practitioner - Critterish Allsorts, Lichfield

I have managed to change my nutritional intake completely to ensure that my body is in good shape inside as well as outside. I am able to ensure that my exercise regime does not compromise my health. I am aware that every part of my environment has an effect on my DNA, and can therefore adjust my lifestyle to improve my own health and the health of those around me. One of my test subjects was my girlfriend, who has a terminal cancer diagnosis (hence why I have studied this course so hard and completed it quickly) - although I have not been able to cure it, I have managed to change our diet to ensure that it is rich in every possible phytonutrient, vitamin and mineral to give her immune system the best possible tools to fight the disease, and to try and change her oncogenes and suppress any further growth or multiplication of them, giving her a better chance of increased longevity. In addition I now have the knowledge to put together a diet plan that will give her all of the foods she needs to fight the disease raging inside her body.

I have enjoyed learning how amazing natures little box of tricks is. What we have available to us right before our eyes is just out of this world. If only more people would open their eyes and just look.

In terms of life change - it has certainly changed my life, and I plan on using my knowledge to help others change their lives in terms of health happiness and fitness. I already run a business giving therapy with animals to people with many chronic illnesses, and now I can help them in another way, by helping them to change their nutritional intake. I plan on changing many lives. My career will not change, but I will run a nutritional therapy business in line with my other therapy business

It is extremely flexible to work with and the course materials give you extensive reference materials too. I liked how the modules and quizzes worked and how easy it was to work through each module. The diversity of courses available is also excellent.


You have made me really really happy! Thank you so much!

Feb 25, 2015 by Abbie Rebecca Fearn, Beauty Therapist, Duffield, Derbyshire, United Kingdom

I realize how much food can change your life, not just your weight but you well being and longevity.I like the fact that everything was straight forward. Also that you have given me the advice and forms I need to start a business.

You have made me really really happy! Thank you so much!


It's been amazing and a real eye opener for myself and how I eat, changes have already been made!

Feb 24, 2015 by Nicole Falleni, Personal Assistant and Fitness Instructor, London

I was shocked by the amount of carbs I wasn't eating and how I was basically starving my muscles of Glycogen, especially for the amount of exercise I do a week, I can teach up to 10 classes plus my normal job and was eating maybe 80g carbs if that...

It's been amazing and a real eye opener for myself and how I eat, changes have already been made!


I learned a tremendous amount of valuable information for my personal growth.

Feb 23, 2015 by Jennifer George, Physiotherapist - Hotel Dieu Grace Healthcare, Leamington, Ontario, Canada

I've largely taken this course for personal education and growth. I have always been athletic and am even more so into fitness. I have used this program to tailor my nutritional needs/timing/dosing, etc. around my workouts to help maintain/reduce weight while maintaining lean muscle mass. It has also helped with my own research on current supplements (protein shakes, sports drinks) that I am using and the timing of consuming them.

1) My favourite materials covered included energy storage (module 3) as it has help me to assess the energy gained from various foods; carbohydrates and the GI and how/when to use the GI as it pertains to performance and/or day to day (Module 4); fueling muscles pre/during/post exercise and muscle building/repair/recovery (module 6); the attachments have been extremely helpful in organizing data and easing confusion.
2) I learned a tremendous amount of valuable information for my personal growth and perhaps if I choose to consult/educate others, I believe this course has prepped me for that as well.
3) As previously mentioned, it has helped me to optimize my performance in the gym and in my recreational activities - an invaluable tool.
4) Yes, I definitely enjoyed the online experience! I enjoyed it so much that I kept coming back and could not wait to learn more each time.

I found some of the tips through the course were very helpful.

Feb 20, 2015 by Jamie Forbes, HM Forces, Rochester, Kent

I found some of the tips through the course were very helpful. The way the course has been written has been excellent and this developed my understanding. I definitely thought I knew more before starting the course but I was proven wrong.

My favourite module of the course would be the carb loading strategies. This course will definitely improve my career prospects.


A lot of information is given in the course.

Feb 20, 2015 by Sarah Griffiths, Royal Navy, United Kingdom

Although a lot of information is given in the course, I have learnt it will take a lot more of my own research to understand everything fully.


I LOVED learning about how diet affects genetic expression.

Feb 20, 2015 by Mary Maxfield, Pharmacy Technician, Salt Lake City, United States

I LOVED learning about how diet affects genetic expression. I have learned more about individual nutrients, minerals, antioxidants, etc. than I could have imagined! I'm so excited to share my expanded knowledge.

Enjoyed how much I have learned about the body and its communication/expression with nutrition.

Everything in the course was enjoyable!

Feb 19, 2015 by Mariam Yassine, unemployed, Tyre, Lebanon

Through this course I found that everything i know about weight loss was false, i learned a lot of new things from hormones of food to psychology behind weight gain or loss, every thing i learned was a true discovery for me.

I have enjoyed everything I studied in this course, I learned a lot of new important stuff about weight loss.

Everything in the course was enjoyable!


As a registered nurse, I will implement my new found knowledge on a daily, healing basis in my day to day practice.

Feb 19, 2015 by JoeAnn Rooney, Nurse, Wilmington,United States

As a nurse, I have enjoyed learning the effects of foods and healing the body.

As a registered nurse, I will implement my new found knowledge on a daily, healing basis in my day to day practice. I will also use this information personally because I have Multiple Sclerosis and I have found the information in this course very informative.


Excellent information, really really useful handouts and I loved the bonus module about personality types.

Feb 19, 2015 by Rachel Owen, PA to Chief Executive, London School of Jewish Studies, London, England

The low GI low carb diet is fantastic and explained to me why I was always hungry soon after eating potatoes! I always knew that a calorie is not a calorie and this explains fantastically how it doesn't help to just count calories but our choice in calories helps us diet successfully.

Excellent information, really really useful handouts and I loved the bonus module about personality types.


I have been able to recognise my personal deficiencies... I feel great & don't get headaches like I used to. Thank you!

Feb 18, 2015 by Samantha Parsons, Anytime Fitness Gym Manager, Bittern, Melbourne, Australia

I have been able to recognise my personal deficiencies & have been experimenting with different foods to see how they make a difference in my life. I have also given my opinion to family members in regards to their current lifestyle & how food can change that.Easy to use website. Everything is straight forward, didn't need to contact you for anything.

I have recently been diagnosed with allergies to Panadol & Nurofen, & since doing this course I have experimented with different foods so that pain killers are no longer required. I feel great & don't get headaches like I used to. Thank you!


This has to be one of the best layouts.

Feb 18, 2015 by Cara Lessard, Health, Safety & Environment Coordinator, Timmins

I enjoyed that the course was easy to follow and put into terms that made it easy to understand. I've taken many online courses, this has to be one of the best layouts.I liked that there was videos and downloadable forms.Very happy with it all.


The course was very informative.

Feb 18, 2015 by Victoria Formosa, Herbalife Independent Distributor, Luton, United Kingdom

The course was very informative, it absolutely answered all the questions that I had since I started to help people with their weight loss journey!

I loved the body composition, the amount of calories, protein and fat each person should eat and, many more!


It has inspired me to look after myself better. I didn't want to stop learning!!

Feb 18, 2015 by Laura White, Fitness Instructor, Skegness Lincolnshire England

It has inspired me to look after myself better, although I am not overweight I have realised that there are changes I could make, and that these changes are not just for obese people!

It was so easy to follow and broken down into manageable chunks. I didn't want to stop learning!! It was a great combination of videos, text and questions so it kept me motivated and interested. The questions at the end of each section really helped to ensure i had thoroughly taken the material in!

It's great as it is!


I really enjoyed the content how informative its was.

Feb 17, 2015 by Gary Sweeney, Fitness Instructor, Belfast

It has helped me greatly in my own nutrition plan as well as my new healthy approach to life.

Feb 16, 2015 by Muazz Docrat, Football Coach

I can now advise my football players on correct hydration and I can help myself. My favourite materials was the pre competition planning and hydration sections. I learnt many things that I never knew such as milk is better after a workout. It has helped me greatly in my own nutrition plan as well as my new healthy approach to life. At the beginning of 2014 I was 81kg and now with the help of dieting and correct nutrition I am 69kg.


Very impressive and much more "serious" than I thought it would be.

Feb 16, 2015 by Nicola Tweedie, Clinical Psychologist, Newhaven, East Sussex, UK

The quality and quantity of the package - very impressive and much more "serious" than I thought it would be. Ease of use and access - especially that it was online so I could do it when I had the time (I have two tiny children so that's crucial).It was fab.


Thank you very much for the class! I enjoyed it!

Feb 16, 2015 by Svitlana Lederfine, Substitute Teacher, Memphis,TN

My favourite module was about changing your genetic expression for better health.

Feb 15, 2015 by Josephine Ashwell, Barrister, Chelmsford

My favourite module was about changing your genetic expression for better health. Quality of materials and ease of use and access.

The ability of nutrition to switch genes on and off; and
the impact of environment on who you are and the ability to change your DNA expression; and the impact of methyl and acetyl tags.


New information to me, I can use it personally and professionally.

Feb 15, 2015 by Brandi Roberts, Author, Boise, ID USA

I knew very little about the benefits of sport drinks and carb loading. Now, I know! A new information to me, I can use it personally and professionally.

I like that it is at my own pace and we can review the materials over and over again.


Excellent course! I LOVED this course!

Feb 15, 2015 by Laurie Driggers, Holistic Health Coach, Derry

I LOVED this course! I loved the way it was presented, the self-pace, the appeal of the way that the pdfs looked was pleasing to my eye, and the information was top notch.

Thank you for putting together this course. I loved all of it!


Excellent course modules.

Feb 15, 2015 by Carol Hynes, Staff Nurse, Luton and Dunstable NHS hospital trust, Luton Bedfordshire England

I enjoyed all the interactive parts especially the videos and tv programme parts. I also enjoyed the skill labs and putting my new knowledge to the test. It has helped my career, I am now about to become part of a team to try to tackle the growing problem of rising obesity in child in the children's outpatients department where I currently work. Excellent course modules and easy progression through the course giving a complete understanding of the subject being studied.


Awesome program. Thank you

Feb 14, 2015 by Aja Kolbeck, Massage Therapist, Minneapolis, MN USA

Everything! I knew nothing of nutrition before this course and now to be able to identify deficiencies and know what to take to help... wonderful. so happy I can help people in this way.

I liked the a to z guides. those are extremely helpful and amazing. Awesome program. Thank you.


Thank you for such a wonderful program!

Feb 14, 2015 by Marlena Glenn Hoffman, Actress, New York, New York

My biggest discoveries in this course where my nutrient deficiencies (mainly chromium) and seeing which foods and superfoods correlated with those nutrients. I had known about how important antioxidants were, but I did not realize their effects on preventing cancer and other diseases. I also hadn't known that DNA could change based on what we eat. Finally, I have eaten excess fiber for a few years now and suffered from frequent stomach aches; this course helped me to realize how important subsidizing my diet with water is.

The overall building of the course was very informational--learning first about antioxidants and the importance of nutrients and then being able to identify which foods had them (and which I was missing) how that could translate to other people was super helpful!

Thank you for such a wonderful program!


I learned a lot more from having to research on this course, and was amazed!

Feb 13, 2015 by Jeff Palmer, HM Forces, New Cumnock, Scotland

I was aware of some of the health benefits that good food and nutrition promotes, however I learned a lot more from having to research on this course, and was amazed !This is my first of many online courses. I found it very easy to learn and very convenient to my working life. I also enjoyed learning more about the foods and what they can achieve within the body. Very easy to use, enjoyable and good resources for you to learn with the video clips prior to sitting the \'quiz\'


Learnt the most about Competition prep.

Feb 11, 2015 by Christopher Saundry, Personal Trainer, Redruth, Cornwall, UK

Favorite materials were the templates to use for clients.
Learnt the most about Competition prep, Refreshed my memory on a lot of topics from previous courses & research.
Will be paying more attention to GI foods. Additional qualification to diversify myself from other trainers.
Enjoyed the online experience & course in general, being able to do it at my pace rather than being limited in a classroom & wasting time.


All the information I learnt was priceless :)

Feb 11, 2015 by Monique Dew, Personal Trainer, Ashwood, Melbourne, Australia

Wow- I thought you only got a bad liver from alcohol! It has opened my eyes and made me put DOWN the chocolate lol

It was easy to leave and come back to without getting lost- the website was very easy to understand and log into. I plan on using this as a personal trainer to further help my clients really learn more about what they are and aren't putting in their bodies. I like that it was all available as PDF also- made it easy to print out the worksheets and save them onto my computer for future reference.

Easy to use program with understandable website to follow and use. Also all the information I learnt was priceless :)


I learnt a lot more than expected

Feb 11, 2015 by Nicole Reedy, Nurse, Regency Downs, QLD Australia

I enjoyed learning about how nutrients affect our DNA and cell formations. I learnt a lot more than expected and the course will certainly help get the job I want and help myself and my family become healthier and more aware of the pitfalls in our diet. Loved the clips, and the client forms will come in handy. Thank you!


This was a great experience! I am looking forward to more.

Feb 11, 2015 by Joan Souza, RN, Wellington, FL USA

I have a much better understanding of antioxidants and WHY I should eat fruits and veggies, not just that I should. I enjoyed all parts. I am especially happy that I can download and print materials as needed. Also the resources and extra information .... I'm still exploring those. And also that I have endless access and you'll keep me updated on your research.
Win for me and all my future clients!

This was a great experience! I am looking forward to more.


Thank you for the amazing course. I wish it was longer! I enjoyed it so much! :-)

Feb 11, 2015 by Lucie Jurová, Personal trainer, Dublin

This course helped me a lot as it showed me a deep insight into nutrition. I certainly needed this kind of info because I work as a personal trainer. Every module was very interesting, it is hard to say which one was the best. I liked your interactive platform even though I did not engage with others very much due to my business schedule.

Thank you for the amazing course. I wish it was longer! I enjoyed it so much! :-)


I learned so much information!

Feb 10, 2015 by Olivia Grist, Health and Fitness Coach, New Albany, OH, USA

I learned how to correct nutritional deficiencies in clients without medication being the first line of defense. There are so many diet changes available before running to medication! I learned so much information!


Great learning experience with opportunities to look at more in depth papers as required.

Feb 09, 2015 by Fiona Third, Physiotherapist. Tillsonburg Physiotherapy Clinic, Eden,Ontario, Canada

I thought Genetic DNA played a much bigger role in illnesses. Useful for my current occupation to be able to suggest ways that a client can enhance their recovery by improving their nutrition. I thought the materials were well presented. Helpful for me to educate current clients as way to enhance their nutrition as relates to physical assessment. It has also made me more thoughtful about my own dietary intake. Great learning experience with opportunities to look at more in depth papers as required.


How awesome it was!

Feb 09, 2015 by Brent Henderson, Personal Trainer, Richmond, Indiana, United States of America

Knowledge is power. How awesome it was!


The course has given me an edge in the fitness industry.

Feb 09, 2015 by Richard Pioro, Fitness Consultant, Singapore

Enjoyed finding out what anti-oxidants are and how there is such a correlation between free radicals / pollution etc with becoming ill with cancers & other illnesses. I could work at my own pace and it was quite easy to go back to previous sections for reference. The course has given me an edge in the fitness industry and plenty of additional things to chat to with clients.


Managed my own diet plan for a few weeks now and have started to see some results.

Feb 09, 2015 by Amanda Henderson, Optican, Richmond Indiana

I have managed my own diet plan for a few weeks now and have started to see some results. I loved the simple layout/format for the course. I enjoy the emails. I really like that I have access to the material even after the course is completed.


I learnt to apply immediate knowledge

Feb 09, 2015 by Sandip Ghattaora, Personal Trainer, Southall, London, UK

I learnt to apply immediate knowledge such as pre/post workout meal types, as well as more longer term strategies such as carb loading for competitive training later down the line. I was able to offer backed up advice to my clients immediately which helped improve our performance during strength sessions..


Excellent eye opening course.

Feb 09, 2015 by Edwin Heffernan, Irish Naval Service, Cloyne, Co.cork, Ireland

Excellent eye opening course,great detail in studies and material.would highly recommend.

Feb 09, 2015 by Susan Blake, Registered Nurse, Bilambil Heights New South Wales Austalia

Building on from the previous module. Thank you very much, I have enjoyed this course immensely. I look forward to doing further courses with you in the future.


Increased my knowledge of nutrition which will help me in my practice as a pharmacist.

Feb 08, 2015 by Munyaradzi Marowa, Pharmacist, Mt Wellington, Auckland, New Zealand

That just because its a plate full of vegetables it dont make it ideal instead you have to aim for the right combination of vegetables (rainbow). Also increased my knowledge of nutrition which will help me in my practice as a pharmacist.


So so happy and impressed, want to start more already!!

Feb 08, 2015 by Kitty Alice Harrison, Personal trainer, Sidmouth, Devon, England

Massive confidence booster, filling in all the gaps from my personal training course. Really thorough and informative and teaches you how to create meal plans.Easy to follow, easy access and thorough. So so happy and impressed, want to start more already!!


The course has helped me with my own nutritional decisions and advice to family and friends.

Feb 08, 2015 by Glenda Lakey, Self employed - fitness consultant, West Drayton, Middlesex, UK

The range of super foods that can help alleviate so many symptoms of unhealthy life choices. All the material was in simple layman's terms, and so very easy to understand. The layout was like a building block with a foundation in genetics and how the environment can affect the genome, building up to the point where the effects of certain foods was explained and understood. The extra reading material was relevant and written by experts in the fields.

The course has helped me with my own nutritional decisions and advice to family and friends.


Online experience was very clear and very adequate for the purposes of this course.

Feb 08, 2015 by Dean Roberts, M.D. of Country & Leisure UK Ltd

Main breakthrough is the fact what we eat can effect our genetic expression, to which I was not aware before. The understanding in great detail what and why antioxidants are so, so important and the types that are available. I am in business so working with people, forms and such are nothing new so I am comfortable with that part... Its basically the WOW factor of realising how foo/nutrients impact our system and really has allowed me to explore in much more detail having increased my interest in the subject.

Most topics where of interest to me but probably as mentioned, it's the DNA and genetic expression and antioxidants that gave some much understanding of the interaction of food to the body. It significantly bolstered my view of why we must each healthily but so important it has given me the confidence to explore further into the subject and take more courses. Online experience was very clear and very adequate for the purposes of this course.


Easy to use, progressive.

Feb 07, 2015 by Siobhan Lyons, Food Technologist- Kerry, Ballyurra, Kilrush Co.Calre

Tthis course has helped me with career change.

Feb 07, 2015 by Irina Nesterova, personal trainer, Centurion, South Africa

Knowledge about nutrition plan, about how important to get right amount of protein and vitamins. What is the daily norm of calories protein fat and carbohydrates, depending on the level of activity and personal data. How to prepare for competitions and perform carbohydrate loading. Liked the interactive platform, gradual and progressive learning experience, welcome email and action guide. This course has helped me with career change.


I was happy with all aspects of the course.

Feb 07, 2015 by Colin Jason Curtis Garstang, Sports Physiologist

Well written, the handouts will be invaluable for clinical/client practice, easy to digest sections in a logical sequence. Well paced and I was able to access at my leisure. Good secondary resources, (client handouts, questionnaires etc). I was happy with all aspects of the course

Feb 07, 2015 by Philip Smith, Transformation Works, South Woodford, London, England.

Thank you for an amazing learning experience! I hope to take another course with you in the future.

Feb 07, 2015 by Cynthia Murphy, HVAC Project Support, Little Bay, Newfoundland, Canada

It was amazing to learn how easily you can become dehydrated, and how often I am actually only 1% from dehydration. I have never taken online course before and I enjoyed how accessible it was, it was great to be able to do it on my own time. I have taken my new knowledge and included it in my own training and gym sessions and have cleaned up my diet considerably since I have started this course. I like how easily accessible the program was. I could access it from my iphone, computer, ipad etc. This made it super easy to complete and work at on my own time. Also it ensures the information is always available to me when I need it. I am also looking forward to receiving my certificate of achievement, it will be nice to put on my office wall to showcase my achievements. Thank you for an amazing learning experience! I hope to take another course with you in the future.


Loved all this info! Keep up the good work!!!

Feb 06, 2015 by Pamela Sandberg, Wellness and Cleanse Coach, Fort Bragg

The food industry making their food addictive on purpose to make a buck. The personality types and gearing my approach accordingly. Loved all this info! I enjoyed the personality types affecting the counselling process. The value of low energy dense foods and water and fiber in diets. I lost 2-3 pounds thru this class due to the info I learned. Keep up the good work!!!


You are doing great work and I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to learn with you.

Feb 06, 2015 by C. Rebecca Gretz, Transformational Coach, Boulder, CO USA

There is so much valuable information in this course. I had many a-ha's and big discoveries. Some of my favourites are recognizing how we are all unique and our personalities have a huge impact on what motivates and discourages us. I loved the videos in this course. Wonderful information. I enjoyed the course so it is difficult for me to think of things that could be better... You are doing great work and I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to learn with you.


Looking forward to implementing these tools and all the information I learned with my clients and future business.

Feb 06, 2015 by Brittni Hounslow

Feeling more confident dealing with different personalities when dealing with weight loss, readiness for change etc. Looking forward to implementing these tools and all the information I learned with my clients and future business.

Enjoyed learning more about the psychology of weight loss, food intolerances and hidden signs of weight gain that most people don't understand or know about. I enjoyed the materials of this course, a long with the videos (especially with Dr, Robert Lustig, I've read his book Fat Chance so I was pleased to see him in your materials!)


There is a real family feel and commitment from the Health Sciences Academy Team to help and support you wherever its needed.

Feb 06, 2015 by Christopher Johnson Gregory, Athlete, Crystal Palace, London, UK

The overall experience was excellent.The materials and tools are all there to educate, and implement nutrition plans for yourself and other. It's taken my education in nutrition to a new level, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and will be revising all the content, and re-write my own nutrition plan and notes! Excited to see how it will benefit my life as an on-the-road competitor....and, I believe this is the beginning of my personal development and profile in nutrition that I will build to become a consultant to others in the future.

There is a real family feel and commitment from the Health Sciences Academy Team to help and support you wherever its needed. The course is easy to follow, and user friendly..giving you a rounded understanding in what you are trying to learn.


I was happy with the whole experience.

Feb 06, 2015 by Dr.Istvan Orosz, medical doctor, Warwick Farm, NSW, Australia

This course provided me with a different point of view towards nutrition and the importance of individualised nutritional plan. During the course I was able to gain important information how to improve my own and my clients dietary intake. The course provided me with essential information and easy to understand materials. I can gain significant informations and up do date knowledge during a course that knowledge I can do my job more efficiently. In addition, the course would provide me with better understanding of my own and my client's health and the importance of nutrition during everyday life.


The teaching tactics you've implemented here are way better than the teaching tactics I endured in Uni and College.

Feb 06, 2015 by Mujahid Hamidi, Certified Hijama Practitioner, Bicester, Oxfordshire, UK

The video regarding the plants which can help detox your environment and produce enough oxygen to allow you to live in a bubble totally amazed me. I've recommended these plants to my friends and family and will be buying them for my own clinic and home once I come back from holiday! Also, realising how toxic our environment is led me to change the way I drink (now I use filtered water), the way I sleep (electronics are at the other side of the room), the way I work (taking breaks outside rather than in front of the TV!) and the way I cook too (I'm exploring a lot of new foods and recipes now).

The team are an excellent bunch of people! They are quick to respond to enquiries and are always extremely polite and helpful. They even crack the odd joke here and there too! As for the course material, it is always presented in digestible chunks which make learning easy and fun even though there's a lot of information to take in throughout the course.

Keep doing what you are doing guys! The teaching tactics you've implemented here are way better than the teaching tactics I endured in Uni and College, so I really appreciate this atmosphere of learning that you've developed so well here. A slightly more rigorous spelling/grammar checker might benefit pedantic types like myself, but I can't imagine it negatively affecting the average Joe and Jane!

Since I enjoyed these videos that you have included in line with the course, I feel like there should be more of them. The short videos which are straight to the point and condense the course material may help the learning experience.

Many of my clients have expressed their gratitude after I have helped them detox via Cupping Therapy methods. Prior to starting this course, I didn't realise how important it was to limit your toxin exposure, which meant that I was not giving the most concise information and advice to my clients. After a Cupping Therapy session, now I always advise them to eat an apple or a fruit of their choice to easily expel more of the toxins circulating around their system. Also, the advice I give is a lot more substantial now, which will allow them to progress and heal a lot more quicker (assuming they follow my advice!).

The reason I bring this up is because I come across a lot of lazy clients who are comfortable with their way of life and don't want to change massive aspects of their life. That's why I've found that just making subtle changes to your lifestyle will have a positive effect; such as changing the water you drink (I bought a Bobble bottle and it makes the water taste sooooo much better!) and changing the environment by adding plants (which don't take up much effort to sustain anyway - perfect for lazy individuals!).

This gradual progression of reducing the toxic exposure and giving your immune system a boost will help a lot of people in the long run and I am the first to appreciate this above anyone else.


It has helped me feel more confident in life coaching someone and help change lifestyles

Feb 06, 2015 by Sarah Davis, Fitness Instructor / John Warner Sports Center, Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, England

As I work within a gym already it has helped me be able to give more efficient information when asked. Its a benefit to my customers as the can now have nutritional advise as well as exercise advise. Whilst completing the course I have been using the print outs, and the information I have learnt, to help a member of my family. It has helped me feel more confident in life coaching someone and help change lifestyles both nutritionally and physically for the better.

My favourite materials was how useful the handouts have been for client assessments. i have learnt a lot about carb loading and can use this in the high levels of netball that I am currently involved in. It will definitely help me in my career as i now feel more confident when having to give nutritional advise.Everything is great!!!!


Very much enjoyed the online experience

Feb 05, 2015 by Roël McMahon, Health Coach and Children's Fitness Instructor and Weight Management Practioner, Tunbridge Wells

Very much enjoyed the online experience, the provided additional resources and the regular emails with interesting articles. Ease of use, quality of content.

Feb 05, 2015 by ANGELIKA CHIPPS, registered respiratory therapist, clarksburg usa

I would love to learn more about effective weight loss strategies. Liked the convenience of online.


Website is fairly easy to work with and professional.

Feb 04, 2015 by Karen Rowe, Stay-at-home mom, Phoenix, NY USA

A-ha moment was watching Dr. Drew Ramsey's video on how brains are shrinking and mental illnesses increasing because of malnutrition. Also how genetics works. Website is fairly easy to work with and professional.

Our whole family has been eating better. My daughter who is a type 1 diabetic has been eating better and her blood glucose levels have improved. I'm looking forward to seeing what her A1C will be at our doctor's appointment in 2 weeks.


Thank you for the wonderful learning experience :)

Feb 04, 2015 by Lauren Travers, Personal Trainer, South Perth

Able to assist one of my endurance athlete clients to break through their plateau and achieve a new Personal Best in their profession.
Assisting PT clients with more effective nutritional strategies to help them achieve their goals. I enjoyed the meal planning templates as well as the meal examples and Low GI food tables. I've found these to be effective tools for my clients.
I liked the overall layout of the course, and the structure of information. Nothing was repeated too often, and i found the addition of extra resources and further reading provided a real insight into the course materials.

The ease of accessibility
The relevance of information provided
The simplicity of structure and layout
The addition of session handouts and further reading

I have gained 6 new nutrition clients since doing this course, and have also acquired a new job role as a collaborative nutritionist working with a Personal Training company.

Thank you for the wonderful learning experience :)


You are doing really well.

Feb 04, 2015 by Timea Frank Palfi

I would recommend this course due the online features and no time limit. This is extremely helpful

Feb 04, 2015 by Ryan Laird, Royal Air Force Police, Fleetwood

I have already completed Sports and Exercise Nutritional course and was completing this one as a confirmation of my other course, considering the price difference this course has been informative and a nice way to confirm what I already know. I would recommend this course due the online features and no time limit. This is extremely helpful considering my job in the military where I can't guarantee setting aside time to complete modules.


All aspects of the course were first class.

Feb 04, 2015 by Francine McBarron, Fitness instructor, Lurgan, Craigavon, Northern Ireland

I am a lot more knowledgeable about all aspects of fitness nutrition and I have thoroughly enjoyed the process. I loved how it was very easily navigated and followed. The information provided was extremely well organised and I learned more than I thought and also thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I honestly cannot speak any higher of the service provided to me it was first class.


Easy Access good information

Feb 04, 2015 by Liam Moore, Army, Kearsley,Bolton,UK

Thinking I already knew quite a bit this has surprised me still will go over it to get it into my head and stuck there and hopefully build my knowledge around it. Favourite part where fueling the muscles and gaining more knowledge on making a diet plan and finding out how to use calories in a good way. Easy Access good information , downloadable content so you never forget and just makes life easy. Yes great course I'm glad I put the effort in and finished it truly got some good info out that and I'm sure I'll use it inn the future to help people out!


Easy to use format

Feb 04, 2015 by MICHAEL MIDGLEY, Personal Trainer, Egham, United Kingdom

There are some differences within the information from that taught at L3 Personal Trainer and in much more depth. Particularly for me around, client evaluation, nutrition and the extensive diet planning. Liked the easy to use format.


The course was very easy to navigate.

Feb 03, 2015 by Annisa Eastepp, Aesthetician, Anchorage, AK USA

I enjoy learning so that is what I enjoyed about the course. Also it is great that the course comes with handouts for clients to use. The course was very easy to navigate.


Everything was interesting, easy to learn, great!!!

Feb 03, 2015 by Mariia Siekierina, Head Hostess, Escalantes, Houston, TX, USA

It helped me to understand the nutrition system overall, main points, secrets, benefits. I helped myself to start eating right. Everything was interesting, easy to learn, great!!!


I've used pre competition nutrition with athletes with great success!

Feb 02, 2015 by Peter Kirkham, Personal trainer, Whitwick, Leicester, UK

Carb loading strategy..amazing! Quantities of macros especially carbs. I've used pre competition nutrition with athletes
With great success. User friendly format. Great course thanks!


I love you guys :)

Jan 31, 2015 by Nicholas Stocks, Tilesetter, Toronto , Canada

How important timing is in nutrition and hydration , I will use these learnings in all nutrition advice I give. I like how all your course material is knowledge based , scientific. The lifetime access is the most awesome aspect of your courses. I have now completed 3 of your courses , all unbelievably great. I have plans for my retirement career , meanwhile my friend and family are benefiting greatly , as a bonus I am a 55 year old man with perfect blood pressure and I am jacked with muscle. :)

Everything !! access for lifetime most of all , your staff, your courses.

I love you guys :)


Very informative and practical

Jan 31, 2015 by Lauren Taylor, Weightloss consultant, Johannesburg

Greater understanding of the various reactions and process that happens to our bodies when we eat certain food. Understanding the effect on Insulin and exactly what happens internally when we have a sugar spike and release of insulin and what happens when too much insulin is releases. Being able top put together a proper weight loss plan from a-b and putting everything together using what the course has taught me.

Liked how informative the course is and how easy it is to understand the material and utilize it with clients . Being able to use the questionnaires and course material with clients and having access to the course even after completing the modules. It is very informative and practical.

Keep up the good work and keep putting up new and informative courses to do with weight management, lifestyle choices and whats happening in the world today when it comes to the obesity epidemic and the steps taken to try and stop it.


Thank you for an absorbing and rewarding learning experience.

Jan 31, 2015 by Dianne Conduit, Health and Care Consultant, Nutrix (UK) Limited, Newton Abbot, England

The science and evidence based nature of the course backed up by the wider reading; articles,suggested books etc provided.
I also liked the inevitable use of art along side the science as all clients will be individuals - so both art and science must work together to provide a tailored service for each individual.
I have also enjoyed getting behind some of the headline media stories about food, health etc and through wider reading appreciate the negative power and influence of the food and pharmacy industries alongside politics and a 'ah ah' moment of how we are all being mislead and brain washed - there is another way to health and wellness!

Having studied human biology at school and during my nurse training many years ago the new knowledge gained since the genome project is awe inspiring and has got me hooked!
I believe by adding this knowledge to my experience in caring for many patients with preventable conditions and my interest and passion in health and well-being generally I can establish a new career that will make a difference to individuals, communities and society in general..... doing something I love!

I am looking forward to getting going and continuing to develop my knowledge and skills. Thank you for an absorbing and rewarding learning experience and helping to establish my new career.


I have been blown away by my experience especially as I have down online learning before.

Jan 30, 2015 by Hendrik de Bruijn, trainer, glen marais, kempton park, gauteng, south africa

I am definitely more aware of the discrepancies between different diet models when it comes to carbohydrate requirements and formulas as they pertain to performance without fat gain. I will be experimenting with these especially with my training. I am very excited about the formulas and being able to apply them in my personal diet and performance planning but also for the athletic clients that I work with. The depth and volume of data that leaves no stone unturned

I have been blown away by my experience especially as I have down online learning before.


The course has given me a lot of knowledge and tools that will improve my Coach in Running in Fitness qualification.

Jan 30, 2015 by Jo Stephenson, Practice Manager, PhysioFixx physiotherapy, Elmswell, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

A proper understanding of the difference between Protein shakes and Recovery shakes, due to the 1:4 Protein:Carbohydrate requirements post exercise. A knowledge of the proportions of different food types that an athlete should use in their diet. The downloadable materials will be very useful in the future. The course has given me a lot of knowledge and tools that will improve my Coach in Running in Fitness qualification. This will allow me to advise the endurance athletes that I coach with their dietary needs as well as just running trailing plans. I have already ascertained possible income that can be generated with the knowledge gained from this course.

I have already recommended this course to someone who has already purchased it. The course content is easy to follow. The examples given make it easy to learn from. The downloadable content will prove invaluable.


Good clear well explained information.

Jan 30, 2015 by David Mair, Self Employed, Santa Eulalia, Ibiza, Spain

My main achievement was to understand the relationship food has to the body thus helping me feed my family better and educate others. The format was great. Easy to find my way around. Good clear well explained information.


Thank you

Jan 30, 2015 by Lina M. Quin, Simplemente Healthy, Charleston, SC, USA

My favorite materials were the all the information on phytochemicals, essential nutrients, superfoods and nutritional advice for health conditions. I also liked that we have a way to develop a nutritional program. I hope they expand that area a little bit more. How important DNA methylation is and it can help us become healthier. Liked the gradual and progressive learning experience. Thank you


I have loved and appreciated your time and course.

Jan 29, 2015 by Stacey E. Hacker, Physical Therapist, Personal Trainer, Group Exercise Leader, Dance Instructor, Brea, USA

I eat somewhat well BUT...for the wrong reasons. I like vegetables; however, some I eat raw now to get more nutrients. Also, I can't easily sip a diet soda now without feeling like I am poisoning myself. I REALLY enjoyed that there was GREAT information! I feel like I could have bought "fluff" that would be easily found in a cheap book; yet, I was wrong. I thought the reading, overall, was thought-provoking, easy to understand and informative. I enjoyed the videos also.I have loved and appreciated your time and course. I am planning to re-read and study further this course again.


Loved the resources available. Loved that it was all downloadable and available to do at my own pace.

Jan 29, 2015 by Bianca Volkiene, Dietitian, Lake Munmorah, NSW, Australia

Loved the resources available. Loved that it was all downloadable and available to do at my own pace. Client resources are helpful. Course material is very well organised and set out making it easy to work through the modules. I have completed 4 years of study to become an Accredited Dietitian. I am very passionate about the health and fitness industry and believe courses in this area would help to further improve and refine my dietetic knowledge and skills, allowing me to excel in my field of passion.


Pretty good as it is!

Jan 29, 2015 by Tina Vlok, Reflexologist, Farnham, Surrey, England

Learning new facts about genetics and nutrition, the super foods and essential micronutrients. This qualification adds a very useful discipline to my range of therapies. This qualification will broaden my client base and enable me to help more people alongside my existing qualifications as a therapist. Pretty good as it is!


The course module notes are very detailed, informative and accessible.

Jan 28, 2015 by Helen Dymond, Self employed consultant solicitor, Sutton Coldfield

The information relating to pre competition nutrition is very informative and pragmatic and useful. The course module notes are very detailed, informative and accessible. The production of the course is very professional. The qualifications will assist my alternative career as a PT. The team is accessible, constructive and supportive as well as well informed and the regular emails with interesting information are also very helpful and informative.

Given the quality of the courses and their presentation I do think the team would succeed in providing courses in addition to those on line.


Very simple to follow - very informative and I got it at a great price

Jan 28, 2015 by Marianna Masiorski

I was pleased to learn about epigenetics and that we have a lot of responsibility in how we treat ourselves, what we eat etc as this all has an impact on our genetic expression and ultimately our health and well-being. It was simple to follow - but very infomative. I am very interested in improving my own health, the health of my son, who was diagnosed with pyrole disorder and the health of clients, (I work as a psychologist and I feel that nutrition is a vital aspect of good mental health). Financially, I have a lower disposable income due to having a dependent child etc so spending money on courses can be difficult - although I am committed to this and see it as a professional and personal responsibility


I really was surprised at how much I enjoyed.

Jan 28, 2015 by Linda Porras, Registered Nurse, Arlington Heights

I thought the material was very good and pertinent to everyday living. I really was surprised at how much I enjoyed the entire program.


easy to understand information

Jan 28, 2015 by Renée Smiley, Paramedic, Louisdale

The fact that your DNA can be turned on and off by some of the foods we eat. How easy it was to navigate. Lots of easy to understand information, extremely easy to use and navigate.


Overall it's a good experience learning online thru Health Sciences Acadamy.

Jan 28, 2015 by Veena Nanavati, MDM Architect at Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Monmouth Junction, NJ, USA

Prior to taking this class, I was not aware of the nutritional deficiencies and their symptoms. After taking this class, I have been able to assess my nutritional deficiencies and will act upon it.I enjoyed this class very much, I learned a lot about good nutrition. I liked the program. Overall it a good experience learning online thru Health Sciences Acadamy.


This would help me achieve my long term goals.

Jan 27, 2015 by Stephen Nash, Rugby Player, Neston

Good course. No complaints. The emails that were sent I enjoyed reading also. Simple to use. Can do on the move. This would help me achieve my lobg term goals.


It helped change my career path and start my own weight loss clinic

Oct 15, 2014 by Jacqueline Cox, Slim Pins

I’ve just finished the Clinical Weight Loss course and I enjoyed every single module! I feel so much more confident now when talking to people about their weight and what they want to achieve. The motivational interviewing skills were a great help. I can\'t wait to start putting this all into practice in the real world!
I am aiming to start a new career in weight loss consulting. Three of us are looking to start our own weight loss clinic. I loved the way you can learn at your own pace. There are no set limits as to how and when to study! I have fitted it nicely into my existing work and family life.
After successfully changing my own life and health I wanted to learn how to help others to do the same. I took this course to help me in changing my career path to one where I can help people live a healthier life. My current financial status is very grim and had to take a loan from a family meme to take part! I would love to do more courses with you that would only increase my chances in successfully helping others to find their way to healthy living.


Credible certification

Sep 04, 2014 by Matthew Oliver, Fitness Director, WellWorx Sporsplex

I have three ways to sum up the Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor course: good information, usable materials and credible certification. I thrive on the confidence that comes from completing your courses and learning the information. I will have more value to offer, and will help more people in more ways. Thank you for your consideration. My upcoming website is FlexDieting.com


The interactive features and polls were very enjoyable and fun

Sep 03, 2014 by Nicholas Theodorou, Architectural Assistant at Farrell and Clark, LLP

I took up the Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor course and I like the ease of access for each material, the additional reading materials, the videos that were added in certain places were very enjoyable. Additionally, I have greatly enjoyed applying the knowledge I have currently on myself to begin seeing positive changes to my training and eating habits. The interactive features and polls were very enjoyable and fun, as well as a helpful insight to what other people is striving to become or to achieve or to overcome.
I like the ease of interactivity and online access, the easy-to-follow material which had a gradual build-up of difficulty.


Totally opened my eyes!

Sep 03, 2014 by Andrew Hageman, A&S Fitness

Just finished the “Advanced Clinical Weight Loss Practitioner” course from The Health Sciences Academy and everything’s totally opened my eyes to the world of food! I feel so confident now regarding food choices, etc. Every module was brilliant!
I love the simplicity of the course, the layout of materials, the accessibility and they can be easily contacted if needed – overall great experience! All in all, I’d like to thank you for the wonderful course- I really enjoyed it!


I can now give well-rounded nutritional advice to my dance and fitness clients

Sep 03, 2014 by Elicia Stadnik, Fitness Instructor

I’m a graduate of Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor and I enjoyed all of it – wish there was more! I consider the course as a way to meet people to network with. I really enjoyed this course and I look forward to taking another course. I teach dance and fitness so by studying nutrition, I find that it helps gives me a well-rounded opinion. Even if I didn\'t use this as a career path, I think the information you learn here is invaluable and will benefit you and those around you for life! I am definitely gonna put all this into action! Also, a scholarship would help me further my studies so that I can increase my knowledge on nutrition.


I feel confident and love having printouts I can give to my clients

Sep 02, 2014 by Cody Packer, Sales Representative

I took up the “Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor” course and I really enjoy how much content is provided. I feel confident in being professional as well as looking the part, having printouts I can give to my clients to take home with them. I can’t think of a single negative experience while taking this course from The Health Sciences Academy.
I really liked the progressive learning experience and all of the content that was provided with the course. Thank you for this amazing course. Everything was very easy to understand, as well as enjoyable. I hope I can take more courses from you in the future.


I love the easy access and practice materials

Sep 01, 2014 by Patricia Rhoden, Senior Administrator

What I enjoyed most is the easy access to the course – it was very straightforward. I also liked the practice materials, which you can study as if you were a Clinical Weight Loss Specialist. I love online courses, they’re accessible at any time and the speed for learning is flexible.

The course is easy to glide through without any complications. I did not have to contact the organization at any time while completing it, considering this is the first time I am completing a course with The Health Sciences Academy.


I would like to start my own business and help others suffering from the same problems

Sep 01, 2014 by Dianne Leih, Science Teacher

For the “Nutritional Therapist” course from The Health Sciences Academy, I learned how important a tailored diet is and what health benefits you can get from eating fresh food. I also knew how bad fizzy drinks are – I was addicted to Diet Coke and drank about 21 a day! I stopped altogether and now only drink water, squash and the occasional cuppa.
I really enjoyed the course, it’s a real eye-opener. I loved looking at the different food items and seeing the health benefits from eating them. My daughter, who is a very fussy eater, has asked for help on her diet which is amazing. I would now like to start my own business and help other people, although I am scared of going at it alone. Other things I loved about the course include its flexibility – the materials are easy-to-read and digest in small chunks. The whole experience was great from start to finish.
Lastly, I would like to do more courses with you, my daughter has food intolerances and it would be great to find food items which will help her. I am overweight and would love to find ways to lose and manage my weight better, then use this improved knowledge to help others suffering from the same problems like we do.


Well-researched work, exactly how I like to learn about things

Sep 01, 2014 by Eleanor May Meintjes, Eleanor Gray Laser Spa

After taking up the “Nutritional Therapist” course, I can say that it is well-researched work. I love the easy-to-understand materials that I can access day or night. I also like the way everything is laid out, it’s exactly how I like to learn about things.
I have a dream of eventually becoming a diabetic dietician to simply help others who find it incredibly hard to keep their health under control. I feel that gaining as much knowledge from all these areas of nutrition and exercise can eventually help me reach these goals. I am diabetic. It is inherited, and I am currently of interest to genetic doctors in Addenbrookes hospital because I have a rare diabetes which is very well-controlled.


I liked the way that the material is set out

Aug 31, 2014 by Thirkill, Sales Representative

I liked the way that the material is set out. I rate the course five stars. I would like to open up a practice which could help underprivileged people and those who get bullied because of their weight, so that they can restore their self-confidence.


Great templates to use with my PT clients

Aug 31, 2014 by Courtney Ross, Moxie Fitness, LLC – Personal Trainer, Nutrition Specialist, Health Coach (Owner)

After finishing the “Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor” course from The Health Sciences Academy has given me something tangible to give to clients. I didn’t really have any hand-outs to use before. The templates will be very helpful for the Math, too – because I hate Math.
I love the ease of use, the handouts and the fact that I can study at my own pace. In my line of business, additional certifications always help. As a health coach besides CPT, I can't have too much knowledge. My clients count on me to know my stuff. I'd also like to be more involved in the healthcare industry. The more I know, the more respected I will be and it will help build connections.
I am just glad I took the course and completed it quickly. Having access all the time gives me the chance to review often and stay on top.


It helped follow my dream to work in weight management

Aug 31, 2014 by Nathan Laura Tarry, Student

I just finished the Advanced Clinical Weight Loss Practitioner course from The Health Sciences Academy. I loved everything! It helps improve my knowledge in order to follow my dream of working in weight management. All in all, it’s great knowledge and information that I can learn from, and helps get me certified.


Gone through many diets in the past and nothing worked

Aug 31, 2014 by Ashley Schwenk, US Airways

I now know which food items to eat and how to plan before I do a marathon after taking up the “Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor” course. I also know more about hydrating myself and what types of food are beneficial for weight loss – but without losing any muscle.
I enjoyed the materials a lot! It helped me understand the process behind breaking down carbs, and which carbs are beneficial to your fitness level. I also like the easy access to information and a lot of materials to help you learn.
I have gone through many diets in the past and nothing worked. After taking this course, it has helped me learn which food items are beneficial for weight loss. I have started watching my carb intake and eating right. I would love to take the weight loss advisor course so that I can help others lose weight with the knowledge I learned from this course.


Learned things which I didn’t know before

Aug 31, 2014 by Bethan Ashton, Zumba Instruction and Dance Teacher

With the “Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor” course, I learned things which I didn’t know before. It made me want to research and further increase my knowledge. I gained knowledge about pre- and post-workout nutrition. I also liked the fact that I’m allowed a lot more cabs than I thought. Another favorite part is the hydration calculator, the easy access to study materials, the direct information and the fact that I can study at my own pace.
I also love the ease of interactivity and online access, as well as the easy-to-follow material which had a gradual build-up of difficulty.
I absolutely think the course was wonderful and I have truly enjoyed it to the max. It was the most welcome and relaxing time (aside from gym time) that I could have spent educating myself. Additionally, for me, it was a huge personal step confidence-wise to be able to do this. At the beginning of my weight loss journey, I have been able to lose 33 kg over two years and I had many bumps along the way. I cannot express my gratefulness enough for being able to go through this course even though I have no background in nutritional whatsoever, aside from what I’ve learned throughout my journey so far.


The course has really helped me with my own fitness goals

Aug 31, 2014 by Michael Hellyer, Architectural Designer

I just finished the “Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor” course and here are the things I like most about it: I can study from the convenience of my home, they have practical assignments, reference handouts, an easy-to-use interface that can be accessed from any device, the downlodable content and links to external resources.
All in all, it’s a great course which has really helped me with my own fitness goals. I look forward to using my knowledge to assist others to achieve their goals.


I like the gradual and progressive learning experience, the PDF certificate and my achievement badge!

Aug 31, 2014 by Tara Ansley, MCCO

What I like most about the Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor course is the fact that it is self-paced. You can go back at any time and it is easily available. I also like the gradual and progressive learning experience, the PDF certificate and achievement badge.


I am eager to see where this takes me!

Aug 31, 2014 by Petrina Doody, Homemaker

I’m a graduate of the Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor course. I have enjoyed most of the materials I read and the knowledge I have obtained will help my family and friends, as well as myself to have a healthier future. I haven’t made any money yet but I am eager to see where this takes me!


I loved the support given to students!

Aug 30, 2014 by Victoria Bootman, Self-Employed

What I loved most about the Advanced Clinical Weight Loss Practitioner course from The Health Sciences Academy is the fact that all the materials and information as easy to study and follow. I also like the courses and the support given to students. It’s perfect!


The knowledge I gained will benefit the hundreds of clients I see every year

Aug 14, 2014 by Simon Clark – Sport, Health & Fitness Specialist

First, I found the course very accessible. The learning interface is easy to navigate through; the lecture is very well-planned, informative and is a pleasure to learn from. Second, the lessons can be studied at your own pace. There are tools that you can use within the program itself to make notes or revisions. If there’s one thing that I would personally like to be improved about the module is to increase the size of the panes on the web page for easier viewing.
Third, the course is a must-study for professionals like me who need a refresher. I facilitate weight management classes for adults and children. Despite having worked professionally for so long, taking the course made me realize that I could learn a lot more from your scholarship programs. In turn, the knowledge I gained will benefit the hundreds of clients I see every year as I work for the Newcastle City Council.
Thank you, I really enjoyed this learning experience.


I now have an added in-depth nutrition aspect for my bootcamp clients

Jul 28, 2014 by Thomas Lloyd, Student

I find it very good that I could go through study materials at my own pace and go back through the modules after the exams, if necessary. Thanks to your course, I now have an added in-depth nutrition aspect for clients who are participating in a bootcamp course in the gym where I work. Although some aspects of the course got slightly repetitive, I liked the fact that I can complete the modules at my own pace.
I would like to be considered for a scholarship and I’m happy for you to use my feedback name and town in your website. It would help further enhance my sports and exercise


Based on scientifically-proven facts

Jul 23, 2014 by Paulina Wahlgren, Student

I find the course easy and pedagogical. You made the subject interesting and it’s a huge plus that it’s based on scientifically-proven facts. Most of the subjects on this course will help me with my journey towards becoming a healthier individual. Hopefully, I can help other people change their lives into a healthier one, too. I’d like to be considered for a scholarship and I’m happy for you to use my feedback, name and town in your website. I’m very pleased with the course!


I feel more confident than ever to talk to people about their weight

I used to be at an unhealthy weight and fortunately, I became successful in taking charge of my health. With such personal struggles, I made it a point to choose a career path where I can help people live a healthier life. These are the reasons why I took the course.
Personally, I enjoyed studying every single module. The tools are very easy to use and the skills that you can develop are so useful. After going through the lessons, I feel more confident than ever to talk to people about their weight and what they would like to achieve. Another thing that I liked is the motivational interviewing skills section. I can’t wait to start putting all this to practice in the real world!
I also love the fact that you can learn at your own pace. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the course and cannot think of anything to improve, add or change. I aim to start a new career as a weight loss consultant soon and I would love to have the opportunity to earn a free scholarship so that I can help others find their way to healthy living.


Useful to show to future employers

Jul 03, 2014 by Al Ostath, Dental Technician

I have enjoyed the easiness and layman’s terms used, as well as the lists of helpful bacteria and the uses of many minerals and vitamins – while having it all regulated. I loved everything about the course – it’s easy to access, easy to comprehend and learn. The certificate is something that can be very useful to show to future employers. I would love to have the scholarship because it will increase my general knowledge and allow me to pursue a career in nutrition and health management.


I like the ready-to-use client materials

Jul 02, 2014 by Chaitali Thakrar, Personal Trainer

This course has given me the confidence to help with my current clients’ weight loss challenges. Based on science, the techniques are accurate and in line with what I personally believe in. The course was easy to understand, laid out in a clear manner, and to the point. The tests at the end were a great way to recap the module. I like all parts of the course, especially the ready-to-use client materials.

There’s no need to improve a student’s learning experience – the course is perfect! Lastly, I would love to earn a scholarship because I love taking courses to upgrade my skills and be a better trainer.


I already have clients lining up!

Jul 02, 2014 by Lorna Lang Evans, Marketer

Here’s the summary of what I loved about the course:
1. The presentations
2. Loads!
3. More knowledge which I intend to use to benefit myself and others.
4. It’s an ideal way to learn.

Also, I find the course easy-to-follow, well-written and logical. I already have clients lining up! I would absolutely love to be able to give up my current job and focus on nutrition full-time, but family demands just won’t allow me to. I’d love to move onto the clinical weight loss course but I simply cannot afford I so I would like to be considered for the scholarship. I’m happy for you to use my feedback, name and town in your website.


All fantastic, informative and thorough!

Jul 01, 2014 by Elizabeth Lawrence, Counsellor

I took the “Fundamentals of Food Allergies & Intolerances” course from The Health Sciences Academy. What I liked most is the layout which isn’t timed. You get another chance to redo the parts where you slipped up. I have just started out on my own after working for others for so long. I want to ensure that I have a vast array of skills to top up what I already have. So far, I have loved all of the courses I have done and am busy doing with you – they are fab!


Really enjoyed the process, found it hard to log off!

Jun 30, 2014 by Kirk Walker, Fitness Instructor

This course has definitely helped open up a new revenue stream for me. The course has confirmed some of the theories I already thought but it has also highlighted so much more. I feel much more confident discussing clinical weight loss with a client now. The course materials for use in future consultations are excellent and it\'s rare to find them all in one place and so easily accessible and user friendly. The amount of useful information, ease of access and use, course material, method testing/examination, the flexibility of use. I am so glad I found this course.


You've helped me start my life and business for the future

Jun 23, 2014 by Jessica Willcox

I've learnt a lot more than I thought I would it's opened my eyes to future options.

I love the simplicity of the interactive features don't change them. They're perfect and brilliant to learn and complete.

Thank you very much!


I didnt realise how much sports nutrition is an exact science and so different for different individuals and sports

Jun 09, 2014 by Stefanie Taylor

I really want to use what I have learnt to set up my own practice. I have really loved it. So much so that I couldnt stop - it was so interesting. It is written simply and the set up makes it easy to read and in a way that makes it very interesting. It is easy to find modules to refer back to. Hope to do more similar courses with you. Thankyou


Took the course to help my own fitness goal however will be looking to use my knowledge with clients part-time

May 26, 2014 by Katarzyna Borowiec

Improved my training performance, lost 3% of body fat. I'm now also able to advise people to support their fitness goals.

I liked the flexibility, good client materials, easy layout and presentation of most important facts. Enjoyable.


Professional yet friendly. I had not one issue.

May 20, 2014 by Ashley Sutherland

Fantastic course, eye opening and I'm pleased I had a chance to undertake it. The whole course has been enjoyable a real pleasure to do, the course material are bright and professional. So far I have completed 3 plans along with some periodisation exercise work. With the knowledge I now have I hope to start 3 academies, 1 for under privileged kids, 1 for disabled kids and a school of excellence. Many thanks again. Mr A Sutherland


I have lost 1 1/2 stone

May 18, 2014 by Ginette Powell from Leeds, West Yorkshire

I have lost 1 1/2 stone since using the nutrition I have learned. Love nutrition love learning about it and talking about it. Found the printable sheets useful. Emails have been useful too.Easy to use and straight forward. I like that it is teaching that nutrition can be used to achieve goals. Also like that it talks about misconceptions and talks about things that people believe but are not scientifically proved. The more courses I do the better it is for me to try and go into business. Would just like to say thank you for the knowledge that has helped me shed fat and gain muscle. Just what I have been trying to achieve.


found the online activities a good way of testing

May 18, 2014 by Louise Sumner from West Bromwich, West Midlands, UK

I really enjoyed this course, in particular the lessons on metabolic assessment and the food training pyramid. I also found the material on supplements etc interesting. The course has helped me to look at what I need before, during and after training. I found the online activities a good way of testing and checking knowledge and understanding. I enjoyed the whole course!


Everything I read seemed to be a new discovery

May 16, 2014 by Ann Gillam from Northampton

I can't really what my favorite lesson was, as I found them all very interesting. I like the interactive side of the course, I also thought that the progressive aspect of it was good as it stops you from jumping ahead a missing thing out. I have enjoyed doing the course, and look forward to implementing it into my everyday life.


Ease of access to materials, and the beautiful presentation of the materials. It is visually engaging and takes you through everything step by step!

May 14, 2014 by Kirby Markham from Derby, UK

Enjoyed everything! The modules are very well laid out, the practical materials provided are spot on, and the exercises really help to compound the practical work. Breaking down the effects on each macro-nutrient source was a great idea, and is taught in a way that makes it relate-able. Certificates are also a great bonus for helping to build a portfolio!!


. The science behind the theory is great for understanding more about nutrition and how the body works

May 12, 2014 by Samantha Owen from Manchester

- Learning the science behind nutrition, such as the resultant "weight loss" of a low carb crash diet is essentially water rather than fat and the serious side effects of excessive protein consumption.
- Learning what foods are best to fuel different types of training programmes and competitions.
- Finding out about the consequences of dehydration and the best ways to achieve optimal hydration at different times.
- The learning material is clear and easy to follow and modules can be completed at your own pace.
- The ease of downloading course materials and the additional links provided for additional reading at the end of each module.

I have already helped 6 friends and colleagues in tweaking their diets to work towards achieving their specific training/weight goals.

The online training material is great to pick up when you have free time and can be fit around your existing commitments. The site is very easy to navigate and course material is clear and comprehensive.


Will add a dimension to my sports therapy practice that others do not have!

May 09, 2014 by Mark Mears from Plymouth, UK

Best online education programme I have undertaken! Very, very easy to navigate, very professional materials.


This has helped me greatly as I teach lots of classes a week.

May 08, 2014 by Michelle Bird from Chatteris, United Kingdom

Enjoyed learning how to build a diet plan and also how important hydration is to the body and fitness. I plan to offer nutritional packages along side PT sessions. Access to training was easy and handouts were great.


I knew a lot, but this has put it all into perspective

May 04, 2014 by Maria Higgs from Loughton, Essex

I found the course amazing. I really do realize now more than ever before the responsibility I am taking on in this profession. I loved every part of the course. It so very clear, informative, easy to follow, easy to understand. The client materials are all ready for me to work with. I have been working with my own family of four children, working with my 4 other families and working with many friends. Thanks to you for the work and effort you have put into this course. I loved it and intend to continue to educate myself. Its so simple to get started. Its clear and easy to follow. The information content is excellent. The additional resources are excellent. The additional bonus is fantastic. I think everyone should do this course for themselves. If ever there was a time in history for people to know this information for themselves, now is the time. Thank you


It was interactive, easy to get hold of someone for help, accessible on my ipad and laptop so I could study on the go

May 01, 2014 by Sophie Ford from Cawsand, Torpoint, England

I was fascinated to see how tapering training and carb loading can enhance performance and also being able to work out he calorie intake with proper meal planning with all of the food groups and how that can affect weight loss/gain depending in the clients goal. I loved how it was laid out, easy to read and the printable materials helped a lot learning each module then hey were ideal for module 8 when it all comes together.


it has helped me maintain a healthier diet with all the knowledge i need to gain muscle and lose fat

Apr 27, 2014 by luke darling from Dublin 11

my favorite part was the mathematical breakdowns of how much a person needs per kg of body weight
easy to learn course materials
keep doing what you are doing


Wish I had done this course before I did the London Marathon !

Apr 27, 2014 by Amanda Kinsella from London

I frequently run and enter events, this course has really helped me to understand the benefits of food for exercise and recovery. I wish I had done this course before I did the London Marathon ! I found the course very straight forward and east to access + use , knowing had help if needed was a bonus. I could work at my own pace and come back to the end quiz . It was not too pressured. I am due to start a personal trainer course. This course will really benefit me once I qualify.


I gained so much from this course,I would say that increased my knowledge by 70%

Apr 26, 2014 by Dainora Rutkauskaite from Fraserburgh ,Scotland

Now I have more confidence about things which I always wanted to know, and I can start my own business ,I can't wait until I will have my first client! I've enjoyed:
- Weight loss materials
- it gave me different view about what I'm eating
- I believe that this course gave me different opinion about online courses, now I wouldn't be scared to go for another course !
I really enjoyed progressive learning experience, easy to save materials and handouts if there is no internet, enjoying getting nice emails about nutrition and surprises ,quizzes which motivates to achieve more :)


Thorough, professionally-designed science-based questionnaires and hand-outs to give to clients. A complete package for the practitioner. Exceptional.

Apr 24, 2014 by Alex Waud from driffield

I particularly liked researching supplement in depth, but with a set criteria. Before the course I found it more difficult to discern quality supplements, but now I am far more critical and investigate the company itself. I am more aware of the how much nutrition can be gained from diet and which supplements to add. This clarifies the ongoing debate about the use of supplements to diet. Having said that, I am also aware of the need to research studies conducted and that there is still divisions in scientific opinion, especially where further studies are required. Knowing the contra-indications is essential both for myself and clients. It offers peace of mind and a positive feeling that the supplements are unlikely to cause adverse reactions if questionnaire results are analysed correctly.

I am extremely interested in supplements and have been for a long time. This means that I enjoyed every part of the course. I particularly enjoyed the Phytonutrients module because it included lots of information that I was unaware of. I have started to make changes to my diet as result of this course and have adjusted my supplements intake accordingly. Information is key for me - it's not enough just to hear "eat 5 fruit/veg a day" or "take vit c for colds". I want to know more precisely what the science behind it is and whether the recommendations we hear are "one size fits all" or are basic recommendations rather than optimal or ideal. An extremely enjoyable and fascinating course.

What I like if that The Academy itself is dedicated to science-based courses of a similar realm of subject, rather than the vague "we provide 600 courses" approach of other colleges, who provide little assurance that they actually specialise in any. Such courses appear to cover thin and seeming irrelevant subject matter, whereas the Health Sciences Academy give thorough yet "to the point" information on all the essential components required to practice.

The information provided throughout the course is skilfully extracted from the most reliable scientific studies. At the same time though, the activities encourage the student to read around the subject critically, providing links to reputable information sites and prompting research and the critical approach needed to select the right supplements.

The interactive learning platform is excellent.


I have gained knowledge to share with my work colleagues and team mates.

Apr 22, 2014 by Ryan Laird from Fleetwood

The fact the course is all online based. There easily accessible information, that would usually take hours of online searching, once you are finished. It will help me with sports and bodybuilding and allow me to give out information to benefit my team. Interactive platform, no time limit to complete the course means you don't need to rush through anything.


All of the course has been a big wake up and made me realise a lot of different things about our diets and what we should be eating.

Apr 19, 2014 by Andrew Sammons from Banbury, United Kingdom

The information has helped me massively on a personal level I now know a lot more and this has helped me achieve better results in my weight training programme. I have enjoyed every element of the course it has provided me with so much information and has helped myself as well as a couple of friends I have been assisting along the way. The system is great, setup is very simple and the amount of information provided is fantastic. Thank you very much, the information I have picked up along the way will help me and many others live a better lifestyle.


First class course.I genuinely feel ready to help others reach their nutrition goals.

Apr 18, 2014 by Peter Thorpe from Desborough

Excellent detail on how to structure macro nutrient consumption throughout a week and how to adapt this to allow for the demands of competition. I also think this course will help me in my teaching! I was staggered at the level of client downloads and sheets to help me to become a nutritional adviser. I feel the content of the course was very good and the links to further research are fantastic. Excellent content, well structured course. The addition of YMCA recognition was a huge bonus. The availability of downloadable client content was first class!


I have made a healthy change in my lifestyle from the information learned in this course.

Apr 17, 2014 by Lee Newman from Leighton Buzzard Bedfordshire England

Also the ability to pick it up anywhere anytime with access to the course from many platforms


Ease of use, uncomplicated and clear. Able to fit it in around 2 jobs, a child, a running a home.

Apr 17, 2014 by Victoria Colver from Leicester, Leicestershire, England

Being able to extend my knowledge at times that suit me and at my own pace. Improving my own diet and starting to help people that attend my F.I.tness classes further.

The content I enjoyed most was the scientific information

Mar 26, 2014 by Anna Hughes from Edinburgh

The basic foundations were useful to set the scene but it really felt like you were being educated when it came to the course content that was not just information you read in any health or fitness article. I didn’t really know what to expect. I completed the course for personal education and although I don’t think I feel qualified to act as an adviser and would like to take additional courses to again better my knowledge from a professional perspective but I feel confident to make the right choices for myself and develop my personal nutritional and fitness goals. I enjoyed the fact that all the materials were easy to download and print as I find it easier to study by ready from paper rather than a screen but having all the materials there all the time when you needed them online was useful especially if you wanted to check something quickly. I also enjoyed the additional resources as I’m alw ays interested in finding out more.

A well worth course to do.

Mar 06, 2014 by Sarah Louisa Richards from Castle Eaton, Swindon, United Kingdom

It has helped tremendously with my nutrition course by expanding my understanding and knowledge of all supplements. The most interesting module of all was module 7 covering Phytochemicals. The recommended additional reading material has also been extremely welcoming for “in depth” knowledge. It has been an extremely well devised course and to have lifetime access, including any future upgrades is a great bonus.

3: Health not sure yet as my partner and I, are into health and fitness. And Cooking fresh vegetables is part of our lifestyle. But as we exercise daily we might add a daily supplement. Regarding career, I hope yes. But only the future will tell. But I enjoyed very much the material you provided in the course which I can use for the future with potential clients.


My favorite lessons was about protein and muscle gain

Already used the information gleaned from the course to aid friends & family

Feb 17, 2014 by Paul Burton from Waltham Abbey, Essex, England

The course was very informative; I have already used the information gleaned from the course to aid friends & family who although are regular trainers / gym goers were not making the physical gains / changes due to there poor nutrition. The set out of the modules & the requirement to attain a pass of 80% before you could move on to next study package guaranteed that you had to have reached a level of understanding / knowledge – certainly a motivating factor.


It will help me 100% with my business

I found the course very informative and enjoyable,

Feb 08, 2014 by joanne ramsey from clophill, Bedfordshire, England

… finding the different calorie requirements for each day and at different stages has been helpful, this is the first course I have done online and if they are all this easy to use and be guided through I will definitely be interested in doing another one.


I can now confidently advise others.

Feb 07, 2014 by Michael Brown from London, England

Learning how to create an in-depth and detailed diet plan for others and myself has allowed me to tailor plans for my own specific exercise goals, making me fitter than I was before. Also, the GI index has helped give a fuller understanding of what effect different foods have on blood glucose levels and how this plays an important part in recovery. The materials provided made it easy to put into practice what I was learning and the course is designed for the to be used straight away. I really appreciated receiving tips and suggestions via email as this kept me motivated to complete the course and spurred my interest. I think also that the downloadable reference materials gave a deeper insight into the science behind some of the principle ideas taught.


Up to date and well balanced

Feb 06, 2014 by Paul Mcrea from Little Clifton, Workington, UK

Up to date information and studies, well balanced information from reputable sources.


Markedly improved my health conditions

Feb 04, 2014 by Mark Titmus from St. Albans, England

Recently, I have had some problems with joint pain and another health condition, after some research, I discovered several supplements which have markedly improved these conditions thus, negating a visit to my GP. Although I did the course remarkably quickly, my previous legal studies taught me how to retain voluminous information, in order to pass exams. Usefully, I can now enjoy re-reading the course and some research materials with a greater understanding and as a back up to this subject. I don’t intend to set up my own practice in this field.


Gave me the full picture

Feb 04, 2014 by Robert Payne from Aisby, Nr Grantham, England

I had a basic knowledge through years of experience, this course gave me the the full picture and gave me the correct terminology to explain to others. I think you have it spot on in all aspects.

Can help support the body and correct deficiencies

Feb 01, 2014 by Todd Davidson from Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England

As I am currently shadowing a PhD to do with prebiotic supplementation and its potential effects on (exercise-induced) asthma I found the probiotic units very interesting. In terms of bettering my health I feel I am more knowledgeable about how supplementation can help support the body and correct deficiencies. Overall I felt the course was very informative, and the sciency parts were broken down well. Very pleased with course content and user friendly. Although I found the course very challenging (which is a good thing as I have never had experience delving into this topic area) I have also found it very rewarding and would recommend to anyone interested in furthering their knowledge about their health.


Nutritional strategies to any potential clients

Jan 31, 2014 by Ravin Patel from Reigate, Surrey, UK

Fully intend to apply these to my own training

Jan 25, 2014 by Todd Davidson from Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England

My favourite lessons involved the calculations of protein and carbohydrate for different athletes/clients. I fully intend to apply these to my own training progamme and hope it will benefit me in future job applications. From a personal perspective a case study using a boxer as an example, weighing up the pros and cons of and to what extent their reduction in calorific intake may have reduced their performance. I found the information relating to dehydration extremely relevant and useful.


I have found the course fascinating

Jan 22, 2014 by Linda Robinson from Saxilby, Lincoln, England

I enjoyed learning about the effect of deficiencies in people and how things can be found naturally and the levels they are found. I was surprised to find out how high the requirements of vitamins and minerals are needed for normal function and how low some amounts are in food. I have found the course fascinating and very enjoyable and am looking forward to putting it into practice.

I enjoyed taking the tests

Dec 22, 2013 by Katie France from Chester, England

I like the fact I can save all the modules to refer back to offline. I enjoyed taking the tests, they were helpful to jog memory. It has helped me rethink my personal supplements and my family members too.


The course covered all areas that I was interested in

Dec 20, 2013 by Eszter Sarolta Bara from Nagykovácsi, Hungary

I have decided to do this course, so I can make informed decisions regarding supplements and advise my family and friends. There is so much information available nowadays, and it is difficult to decide which one to follow without thorough understanding of the subject. I wanted to be able to make wise decisions on which supplements to choose and in what dosage for my children and for us. I found that the course covered all areas that I was interested in.
