The UK's leading health and fitness training provider is now offering students access to the first-ever Ofqual-recognised Level 4 qualification in Transformational Nutritional Coaching.

In a groundbreaking collaboration, the Transcend Awards Level 4 Certificate in Transformational Nutrition Coaching has been designed in partnership with the UK's leading education provider, The Health and Fitness Institute (THFI), and the world leaders in Personal Training, Ultimate Performance.

It is the first time an Ofqual-recognized qualification of its type is available in the UK and has been developed from more than 10 years of meticulous research and application.
The course has been specifically tailored to give students a unique all-around awareness of how nutrition can support the wellness of their clients and transform their lives for the better.

Unlike any other nutritional coaching qualification on offer, this course will equip learners with not only the science behind good nutrition but, crucially, how to apply that knowledge with their clients to attain significant and sustainable improvements in body composition and reduce the risks of long-term health conditions. The Level 4 qualification provides a blueprint for success for fitness professionals; as long as their clients follow their advice, the PT can guarantee results.

The qualification also looks in detail at improving broader elements of client wellness, such as sleep, gut health, physical activity, exercise, and recovery.

The 18-week course contains highly detailed and researched content. It will be delivered digitally through a mixture of live and recorded interactive content, and students will have exclusive access to a cutting-edge digital coaching app to support students' assessment.

The Health and Fitness Institute's (THFI) aim is to provide credible and industry-leading continuing education to the sector. This is the first of many distinguishable qualifications THFI has developed with the overarching aim of providing fitness professionals with innovative continuous professional development (CPD) opportunities, allowing them to broaden their client base and increase their earning potential. THFI will continue to release new CPD and innovative CPD with the primary aim of helping PTs ultimately become more successful.

THFI recognizes there is an ongoing educational gap in the market for fitness professionals. CPD should be born out of a desire to make PTs more successful, earn more, have a greater impact on their clients, and stay in the industry longer.

Dan Rees, Co-Founder, and Managing Director of THFI, said: 'Anyone waiting to forge a successful career in the health and fitness industry needs to understand how to educate their clients about nutrition. In the quest to enhance their health and body composition, what individuals do in the kitchen holds as much significance as their activities on the gym floor.

“Most nutritional courses on offer focus purely on the science of nutrition. What is so exciting and different about the qualification we are now offering is that it goes beyond the science. It explores how coaches can really put that nutritional knowledge into practice in the real world with their clients and help them lead healthier lives.

“So, I'm absolutely delighted to be announcing this new qualification. There is no other qualification on the market like this; it's a first for the industry.

“Students who enrol in the course can be assured they will be getting an Ofqual-recognised qualification that will open up employment opportunities for them around the world. Aligning with our International plans, we’ve also worked with International Sport Sciences Association (ISSA) in the US to accredit this qualification under their continuing education programme. We’re really happy to announce this course will also provide 20 ISSA CEU points to PT’s.”

Stacey Doherty, CEO of Transcend Awards, said, "Transcend Awards were approached by The Health and Fitness Institute to work collaboratively on this new and innovative qualification.

“Transcend is a forward-thinking awarding organisation, so the opportunity to bring a new, innovative, and impactful Nutrition qualification to the fitness professional market aligns with our vision.

“We're really looking forward to working with the team at THFI in the future to help raise the standard of fitness professionals."

Testimonial
"Wow! I spent ages shopping around for a personal training course and am so glad I chose THFI as it feels incredibly personal, professional and structured.

"I’ve found that the course and tutors really keep you accountable and motivate you to ensure you keep a close eye on course content and digest it properly.

"For someone that has always struggled to read, webinars are certainly the way forward. There are live and pre-recorded webinars and of course you can watch all of the material back.br>
THFI cover all types of learning styles which further demonstrates how personalised it is."

– Olivia, Trainee PT (via Trust Pilot)
Testimonial
"I’m only 19, so deciding the right course for me was really difficult but spoke to a someone called Hakeem who made it really easy to understand what would benefit me and it was really good that I was actually talking to someone that was a personal trainer too.

"I decided to choose THFI because of the support I was going to receive and the help making sure I was qualified to a high level. Best decision!"

– EJ, Trainee Wellness Coach (via Trust Pilot)
Testimonial
"I was super keen to become a PT and The Health and Fitness Institute explained everything I needed to know. All the questions I asked, were answered and I was not rushed into making any decisions there and then, as it was big commitment.

"I opened up my course in the learning platform and downloaded the app, so I started learning straight away, A&P was tough but THFI laid it out in really easy digestible chunks. I have more to complete but wanted to recommend THFI to anyone wanting to become a PT. Thank you"

– Reuben, Trainee PT (via Trust Pilot)
