“I was looking for the perfect course that combined theoretical knowledge and practical experience in sports nutrition for many years. I was greatly impressed with the new knowledge I gained also the course flow with the blend of on-demand content together with “live” online Zoom tutorials and class group. For those in the fitness industry, I highly recommended getting ISSN certified on the GPNi® portal and upgrading your knowledge and career at the same time.”

From Lenka Suta, SNS Graduate of SNS certification in 2021.

“I'm actually doing the course for a second time right now because I know that the course has about 40% of new information in it compared to a few years ago when I last did the course.

One of my biggest frustrations in the industry in the past has been courses where the knowledge is already outdated based on the current science, but they're very slow to update the course content. That isn't a problem that you have with the ISSN and the GPNi.”

Testimonial by SNS student, Holly Priestland from the UK

"I graduated from University Kebangsaan Malaysia and possess a bachelor's degree in nutrition with honors. Ever since I learned about nutrition, my interest is inclined towards sports and performance nutrition. So that is why I chose to join this class."

Testimonial by SNS student, Amir Shahimi, a certified nutritionist cum coach.

“In the last few days, my clients have been asking me for guidance and tips about nutrition, how to pair their workouts with their meal plan.

So I decided to attend this nutrition certification and I have to say that I learn a lot, and finally, I can give the right answers to all my clients.”
