As a gym owner, you can only have so much on your plate. Hiring a nutrition coach to run your program allows you to scale your program at a faster rate.
HSN Mentoring has trained over 1,000 nutrition coaches and there are some key things we look for when hiring a coach and helping gyms do the same.
The truth is, not every fitness coach will make a great nutrition coach! You need someone that is passionate about nutrition, is a cheerleader and someone who will keep your nutrition clients accountable to what they need to do. If the nutrition coach doesn’t have the same nutrition philosophy as your nutrition program, it is going to be VERY tough for your clients to listen to them.
At HSN Mentoring, we recommend gyms launch with one nutrition coach then train others to help support the growth of the program. It’s important that the entire staff is on board with the program but not everyone will play a role when working with clients directly.
