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.
