What you need to know about IFTA

Live and Online Training For Your Lifestyle

Nutrition should be a major part of a client’s training program. True results are created with a balanced approach to health, which include the nutritional component. As a Personal Trainer or Group Exercise Specialist, we are limited to educate without prescription, with this in mind the Fierce4 Fitness Nutritional Coach (F.N.C.) is your program for nutritional excellence. Our goal is to teach you all of the components of food and health that will assist your clients to maximize their wellbeing. We call it the Nutritarian Food Plan, one that emphasizes nutritional density, thereby minimizing useless calories and creating a solid foundation for a lean body, zest for life, and unlimited health!
