Course Philosophy

The polyhealth - Nutrition Coaching Masterclass serves as a practical introduction to the world of nutrition coaching.

This course outlines an evidence-based framework for the study and application of nutrition and the impact on body composition and athletic performance.

Accompanying this base of knowledge, the course introduces online coaching - detailing client acquisition, marketing and fulfilment, and concluding with a real world practicum with an actual client.

"Marc has a fun, conversational style of teaching that is easy to listen to. He livened up what was kind of dry material with anecdotes, research tidbits, and applications to bodybuilding. I felt as though he was kind of our friend while still coming across as the instructor and the expert."

  2. Analyze and assess dietary intakes, the relationship between nutrients and food and  different dietary patterns.
