"Where do I begin. It is worth every penny. The depth and breadth of information delivered was incredible. I felt like I could action the information I had straight away - which tells me I understood it. It has been invaluable. There wasn't a point where I felt overwhelmed or bogged down by too much science talk. Every lecture felt like I was ACTUALLY learning something."


Melissa, class of October 2020

" The content was great, easy to understand and put into practice. The passion you both had for the lectures and topics you were teaching was great.

About you

You could spend the next 10 years of your life trawling social media, magazines and newspapers for knowledge. Falling into the continuous cycle of misleading advice, expense and frustration. Losing money to those who capitalise on said mass misinformation. Falling repeatedly into the same diet cycles, only to end up back where you started, frustrated, out of pocket and knowing that ‘diets don’t work’.


You could keep trying to hate yourself into health. Guilt yourself in to change.


Or as an Exercise Professional, continue to scold your clients in to working harder, failing to promote sustainable behaviour change through your lack understanding of how compassion and empathy translate into nutrition practices.


Or, you can empower yourself. Save yourself the 10 years of time, money, heart. Support your clients with a new level of empathy. Learn the fundamentals of compassionate health and fitness nutrition for yourself.


EIQ Nutrition is for you if you are looking to improve your nutrition knowledge and make lifelong healthful change for yourself and your family. It will support you in removing the confusion around nutrition and health by providing a critical insight into the evidence behind the headlines. You can complete the course without prior education or training (although we will give you some recommended reading when you sign up).


It is also suitable for you if you are a qualified Exercise Professional looking to incorporate an evidence-based holistic approach to nutrition within your current practice. You will be introduced to concepts that allow you to empathise with your clients on a higher level, the key to lasting success (please note, this course does not qualify you to become a certified Nutritionist).
