The information is good, although I teach Nutrition at the undergraduate level so there was nothing new for me. For someone unfamiliar with the material this would be great. I give it the one star rating as I agree with Rachel that the course is over-valued and over-priced. I professional mailed certificate would be nice, as the printed certificate does appear less than professional in my opinion and as Karen stated in her review "the printables are just sad looking". I agree wholeheartedly with these statements. This was my first NASM course, and for these reasons will most likely be my last.

I enjoyed this entire course, from start to finish. The modules were detailed enough to give you the confidence that you could finish the quizzes and the information provided was update and on point. It is definitely a course that all trainers should have in their resume!

Very informative. I have had approx. 12 hours of college level nutrition, this was very thorough. Do agree with the others, I wish I had received a mailed certificate. I value this credential and would appreciate for my portfolio.

While I do agree the practical application towards client fitness needs to be expanded upon, the course itself was decent. I actually did receive a professional looking certificate in the mail, despite reading that we would only get a printable. This might be a new addition. I very appreciate that they've decided to start sending us a real certificate, as the printables are just sad looking.

This is not a FITNESS nutrition course. For $500 you should get a real certificate in the mail that looks professional. I do not feel the course is worth the money it costs to take it.

I feel this course was just a review on my old human physiology and biochemistry courses rather than an actual course on fitness nutrition. I was hoping for a more practical approach and something we can really help our clients with. Also the printable hand outs that NASM says that we get are extremely hard to get to and not very user friendly.

In short, I felt like it could have been better. The course layout and over all design was very good and easy to comprehend, but the information was very redundant and basically a rehash of what was taught in the basic cpt book, and information anyone can find online these days.

While I enjoyed the course material, I was disappointed that there was very little information that was specific to "fitness nutrition". I felt that much of the course material was review from my personal training certification. Good course, but I was hoping for much more depth...and I think if you are going to call the certification "Fitness Nutrition Specialist", there should be much more information about nutrition for athletes.

The course was very easy to take. The time limit is 90 minutes and I finished it about 30 minutes. The material was very informative but mostly a review from my undergraduate and graduate course work. I did not have to read the whole chapters; I mostly hit the high points and did not watch any modules. Over all if you have a sports medicine or exercise science back ground this course should be no problem. I did this course mostly for the CEUs, if you are certified as an ATC,CSCS or both this is a great way to get CEUs and pick up another credential in the process.

This course is heavily scientific based, but lacks the practical application. And fails to discuss "fitness nutrition." There are many unsubstantiated statements and current trends are not discussed in detail. There are also organizational issues (referring to chapters that are not in the book, repeating the exact information, making unnecessary distinctions between two unrelated things, etc.). I was disappointed the course was not more practical for fitness nutrition.
