The IYCA Youth Nutrition Specialist Certification

Discover the Only Nutrition Certification Designed Specifically for the Youth Training Market
If you want to end the confusion of nutrition and increase your value as a trainer and coach, along with increasing your credibility & knowledge, then I suggest you read on…

Dear Coach,

I’m sure you get asked some sort of nutrition question everyday from parents and the kids you train.
You already know that training and nutrition go hand-and-hand and when used together they lead to exponentially greater results than just training alone.

Exercise alone just doesn’t work as well. Proper nutrition is crucial to improved health and performance. I know I am not telling you anything new but I have to bring it up because most coaches and trainers just do not share any nutrition information with their kids they coach.

Here’s the problem:

No amount of training can overcome deficiencies in nutrition, but nutrition always takes a backseat.

Coaches and Trainers are getting asked for nutrition advice daily and they know that their clients will get better results if they combine nutrition with their training program BUT they just are not providing the nutrition information.

If you can get better results, a lot faster with nutrition as part of your program, then why isn’t’ it a part of everyone’s training plan?

Well, here are the 3 common reasons (excuses) we hear all the time.

Reason # 1: ‘There is no time to address nutrition during a training session.’

Have you ever asked your athletes what they eat each day?

Don’t worry. Here’s the answer:


With all the things you have to worry about during your average day and/or practice, taking on the eating habits of teenagers may seem like an overwhelming addition to your already overscheduled day.

I’m betting you can relate.

But when you step back and think about it, it’s actually *worse* to ignore it.

Leaving them on their own just means they’re not going to eat breakfast (or they consider coffee a suitable breakfast), not going to drink enough water, eat whatever junk they serve for school lunch and then show up for practice hungry, tired and emotionally fried.

So is it reasonable to expect them to run tough workouts? Pay attention to another adult blabbering at them about some topic they’re only partially interested in? Execute highly technical movements?


As much as we’d both love to live in a world where if you ignore something, it magically goes away, we can’t ignore our athletes’ terrible nutrition.

Because we put too much time into planning practices and setting standards of excellence to let something fundamental like our athletes’ fuel source just get swept under the rug.

I used to think nutrition was complicated. So I ignored it and hoped it would go away. It didn’t.

Turns out, if you focus on just a handful of basic concepts, your athletes will show up to practice with a lot more energy and your time will be much more productive.

Saying you don’t have enough ‘time’ is a copout.

Reason #2: ‘Nutrition is outside of my scope of practice as a coach/trainer.’


This is false.

As a certified coach or trainer, you are allowed to make nutrition recommendations for your healthy clients.

Other clients that have health issues, you still have to refer out to professionals. You are not going to try to treat diseases or other medical issues, so you would send them to a professional that can help.

Same thing you would do as a trainer if your client has an injury or a special health risk, you would refer them to a specialist; a doctor or therapist.

Reason #3: ‘Don’t have enough nutrition knowledge to feel comfortable giving advice’

Nutrition can be confusing.

  • Good carbs? Bad carbs?
  • How much water?
  • How often should athletes eat?
  • How many calories?
  • Is breakfast really that important?
  • How much protein should I take a day?
  • How to cut weight safely?
  • How to gain ‘healthy’ weight?
  • Is creatine safe for me to take?
  • Should I take protein supplements
  • What is the best post – workout meal to have?

When it comes to workout planning and implementation or motivation, you probably feel very confident.

When it comes to telling athletes what to put in their bodies, well, you don’t want to make any mistakes. But if you don’t address nutrition with your athletes and clients then you are hurting them.

That’s why the Youth Nutrition Specialist Certification was created.

It’s simple. Straightforward. Easy to understand.

You and your clients put a lot of time into training, you need to get their nutrition under control if you want to see continued results.

The IYCA has created the Youth Nutrition Specialist Certification to teach all coaches and trainers that work with today’s youth a comprehensive and practical nutrition education system
