American Fitness Professionals & Associates launches the Gut Health Nutrition Specialist course

RADNOR, Pa., February 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — American Fitness Professionals & Associates (AFPA), a division of KnowFully Learning Group and a leading provider of online health, nutrition and fitness education, today announced the launch of its new offering: the Gut Health Nutrition Specialist- class.

Students learn how gut health affects the entire body, and the influence of diet, genetics, and lifestyle.

Over the past decade, health professionals in all fields have begun to recognize the central importance of optimizing gut health to prevent, treat, and manage some of the most common health problems, including digestive disorders, immunity, mental health, chronic disease, and overall wellness. .

AFPA developed this specialty certificate to meet the demand for this niche topic and provide students with a detailed understanding of the role of diet in influencing gut health. The course provides up-to-date scientific knowledge on how a healthy gut is fundamental to healthy digestion and nutrient absorption, as well as being inextricably linked to the adequate functioning of all body systems.

“I have spent more than 20 years training and consulting with organizations around the world on fitness and sports performance programs. Fitness professionals, personal trainers and coaches struggle when clients and athletes are mentally and physically thrown off with gut health issues and related symptoms,” said Diane Vives, senior director of health and wellness professionalization for AFPA. “There was little professional education standing in the way of science-based information and realistic solutions. I am very pleased that the AFPA team and nutritionist Sasha Aparicio have teamed up to deliver this Gut Health Specialist course and believe it will benefit many professionals and their clients.”

Over the course of eight modules, students learn about the anatomy of the gut, the ways gut health affects the rest of the body, and how diet, genetics, and lifestyle factors affect gut health. In addition, students learn evidence-based nutritional strategies for optimizing gut health throughout the life cycle.
