"I've created this course to get to the heart of the limitations the contemporary nutritionist is faced with to help them excel. The course will enable you to make meaningful sense of the array of nutrition knowledge out there in the world that so often confuses athletes and practitioners alike. I will share the essential ‘need to knows’ but offer you practical examples for you to understand your discipline and give you ways to make fuelling, recovery and performance nutrition engaging."

"Lesson 1 was worth the course fee alone, given just how much it has helped my support."
"I wasn't expecting the amazing community too - it's been really helpful and supportive"



"The applied practitioner course lead by Dr Sophie killer was a fantastic resource to have completed and accessed in furthering my knowledge. The topics covered, depth explored and applied examples discussed were brilliant, touching on things that are not covered at University level. I would highly recommend to anyone working as a nutritionist."

Abi Woodliffe-Thomas
Performance Nutritionist, @Happetite

"The Applied Performance Nutrition course helped me step back from my busy work life and reassess each aspect of my clients journey. The 10 week course gave me the accountability I needed to take a deeper look once again at key areas of my practice. I could complete the course content at my own speed around my own busy work and family life. As a result of the course I have made deeper connections with other practitioners which I hope will lead to good things in the future."

Matt Gardner
Performance Nutritionist, Big Feed Up HQ

"What a brilliant course for any practitioner just starting out or looking to develop their skills. Lead by a legend in the sport nutrition industry, Dr Sophie Killer, she has crammed every session with so many useful tips and information that I took from every session. As a result of completing this programme, I feel I am able to support athletes so much more effectively."

James Fleming
Performance Nutritionist, JF Nutrition

"A course that encouraged me to reflect on my own practice and provide excellent insights into professional practice 'in the trenches'. I took away aspects of the course that would no doubt benefit my professional development."
