Fitness & Nutrition Training Program in Kansas City, MO

Fitness & Nutrition professionals have realized that to affect real lasting change they need to be able to educate clients on what to do in their daily lives, and particularly what they put in their bodies, and how it complements or conflicts with their other personal goals.

With knowledge in areas like basic nutrition, meal planning, weight regulation, and stress management, Fitness & Nutrition professionals help clients uncover what drives their behavior and then help implement a plan to make long-term positive improvements in their lives.

Becoming a Qualified Fitness & Nutrition Professional

WellSpring School of Allied Health provides a state-of-the-art coaching model that has been adapted from the National Association for Fitness Certifications (NAFC) and incorporates all the theory, practical experience, and industry support that it takes to become a confident Fitness & Nutrition professional.

Career Opportunities

The Fitness & Nutrition Degree (AOS) program is a “best fit” for individuals who are already involved in the health and wellness industry in some way, including a health food store, natural grocer, or a fitness center. It’s also well-suited for more independent wellness practitioners like massage therapists, personal trainers, and life coaches who are eager to expand their services and provide more comprehensive support to their clients.

Graduates are prepared to work in a variety of job settings, including wellness centers, school health systems, hospitals, corporate wellness programs, as well as health clubs and fitness centers, particularly in support of a Registered Dietician (RD). As a graduate of this program, you may even choose to start your own business.
