Key aspects

At present there is a growing demand among sports clubs and bodies for qualified professionals in individual, team and combat sports to work in every area of sports: performance, introductory training and even health care.

The trend is to find highly qualified professional service providers who can organize training and nutrition programs in a scientific and rational manner in all possible fields, in order to monitor health improvement processes more thoroughly and increase performance more rapidly and with better quality.

This type of demand requires professionals to be familiar with the most appropriate methodologies and the latest trends, so that they can develop specific training plans and programs for monitoring and evaluating the performance of athletes of different ages, sexes and categories, and provide advice on the best nutritional habits and strategies for each case, given the importance of diet within these processes. Similarly, students will learn how to adapt these guidelines to normal users who undertake physical exercise with the help of a personal trainer.
