The Holistic Performance Institute

Cutting-edge education in Nutrition, Health, and Performance

The Holistic Performance Institute was founded by Cliff Harvey, a researcher, author, and clinician, in response to his frustration at both the lack of evidence-based holistic education and because of the poor retention rates of practitioners in the nutrition field.
The vision of the Institute is to provide truly holistic education, backed by evidence, to help both existing and aspiring practitioners, athletes, coaches, and those passionate about health and performance to learn the most up-to-date and practical information available.

What our students say

I would highly recommend HPN

Ling Chan (Clinical Nutritionist)

I can use the HPN concepts for my general clients with health conditions, or those looking to lose weight. I would highly recommend this course to others because you will learn the science behind nutrition in relation to both health and performance.

I now have a more in depth knowledge of nutrition

Stephanie Fong (Clinical Nutritionist & Personal Trainer)

I now have a more in-depth knowledge of performance nutrition, but best of all, have peer-support to share ideas and knowledge. I would recommend the course to others because of the solid course content, the ability to do it part-time and incorporating what you’re learning into your own lifestyle.

I now feel confident that I am giving my clients plans based on the latest research

Simone Johnson (Nutrition Coach)

I have gained a sound knowledge of nutrition for optimum health and performance. I now feel confident that I am giving my clients plans based on the latest research findings. I’d recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn more about nutrition or further their nutrition studies.
