This online course teaches you how to set up the back-end components such as marketing and the fundamental skills to become an effective nutrition coach.

As a partner of HSN, your clients will see HSN branding and wording that states the program was written by a registered dietitian. Your clients will download the HSN app on their phone. With that being said, there are opportunities to co-brand the content for instance meal plans will have your facility name on it and you are able to add your logo to the HSN app.
Some gym owners will sign up and launch the program themselves. Once the program is off the ground and they find a good fit to run the program, they add another nutrition coach. The initial sign up includes two subscriptions to the online course. If you don’t have a good fit right away, you can save it until you are ready to add a nutrition coach to take over the program. It is mandatory that the owner go through the training course with a nutrition coach.
Additional subscriptions to the online course are $599. Every nutrition coach running this program must complete the training course.

The app is the place to ensure streamlined communication between the coach and client. Part of your role as a nutrition coach is to provide feedback to your clients. Within the HSN App, you can schedule custom habits. Every day, your clients can go in and mark them complete.

Initial consults are about 60-minutes. Follow up visits are about 30 minutes. The first month, a nutrition coach will spend about 2 hours total with a client. Following months, the time investment is decreased significantly to about 60-minutes between in-person and virtual support through the HSN App.
Nutrition coaches check in with clients via the app weekly or bi-weekly. Clients have weekly automated videos within the app.
We have found about 40 individual nutrition clients is the threshold for a nutrition coach. Although there are strategies to increase efficiency, such as setting nutrition hours of the month, we recommend adding an additional nutrition coach to the team after building a program to 40 nutrition clients per month.
