  • And Much Much More...

Course Overview

Exercise and sport professionals are not insured to prescribe specific dietary plans for individuals presenting with any medical conditions. Once a client is found to be at risk of a cardio-metabolic condition or has a known medical condition, they are instructed to see a dietitian if they require a diet plan or dietary advice.

However, in cases where a client is risk stratified as being apparently healthy, exercise and sport professionals have the opportunity to provide their client with general dietary advice to assist with their training goals.

Findings from the latest research show that structured dietary interventions have a much higher success rate than general dietary guidelines for altering body composition.

This professional development opportunity provides the latest evidenced-based and practical nutritional guidelines for personal trainers, exercise physiologists and sport scientists for healthy populations with weight loss and body composition goals. 

The content covered will provide exercise and sport professionals with the skills and knowledge to design safe and effective diet plans for healthy adults. As such, allowing them to prescribe less generalized diet plans for healthy clients to assist with their exercise goals.

Stefan Ianev is the founder of iNutrition Pro and a globally recognized trainer and educator. He has over 15 years industry experience and has worked with hundreds of clients all the way up to international level physique competitors, and lectured to over 1000 fitness professionals in over 10 cities across the globe. Stefan has also been mentored directly by some of the top names in the fitness industry such as Charles Poliquin, and has won numerous titles in natural bodybuilding.


"I first came across Stefan after listening to a podcast he was on and remember thinking “this guy knows his stuff”. After inquiring further and speaking with him, he informed me he has a nutrition course on-line factoring in what he taught at Clean Health Institute. Given I had already heard him speak I knew this would be a valuable course to do.

I enrolled almost immediately and was so glad I did. The course is set out with easy to follow video clips, and broken down into a number of key subjects. The content is like no other nutrition course I have encountered all supported by evidence, which are quoted. 

The level of detail was simply unbelievable – so much so a friend of mine who has completed a degree in nutrition now comes to me for advice on nutrition for body composition.

The INutrition Pro software makes planning and putting together a diet plan a breeze. The numerous templates are a great tool to have depending on your client and everything is then calculated for you. Once you become familiar with it, it takes a matter of minutes to put together a plan. 

I highly recommend both the course and the INutrition Pro software – great course content with no more messy Excel spreadsheets."

"I cannot thank Stefan enough, not only for what he has done for me on a personal level, to help me achieve my goals, that at times seemed unachievable but for the guidance and advice he has given me to grow as a personal trainer and by the amount of time he put into help me complete the iNutrition Pro online course.

By completing the online course, I have been able to increase my business revenue by 30%. My clients are all so excited about new service I can offer and I’m sure they will start to see even bigger results now the guess work is gone from their diets.

I am so grateful that I crossed paths with Stefan and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone, whether they be starting out or already well on their way to kicking their goals, and if you aren’t using iNutrition Pro for your clients, you need to be!

Thank you Stefan, on both a professional and a personal level I would not be where I am today without you.

"I attended the level 1 course in 2015 in Toronto which was taught by Stefan and I was overwhelmed with the high quality information that was given. I was hoping to continue with level 2 but that never came this direction again so I was happy to see there was an online course available. I can't wait to continue where I left off in 2015. Top notch!!"

Antonio Gummels


"My partner Melody and I have struggled for years with understanding the nutritional requirements for not only ourselves but for our clients as well. With the help and guidance of Stefan & Clair, as well as completing the iNutiriton Pro course, we now have the tools and understanding needed to help our clients and ourselves." We cannot thank you guys enough."
