Masters in Health & Sports Nutrition

Masters in Health & Sports Nutrition

This Masters is aimed at Trainers, Athletic Coaches, Motor Education professionals, and all those who are passionate about the Nutritional and Sports sector in the broadest sense, who aim to acquire specific competences in the nutritional sphere.

The objective of the Masters is to go deeper into the topic of “Nutrition for Sport and Wellness”, healthy human nutrition, and an efficient nutrition for sports and for athletes.

With this knowledge you will know how the adequate nutrition is related to Health and Sports Performance.
To this end, the course will provide all the indispensable, fundamental, and suitable knowledge on the subject, as well as on the most appropriate and “functional” nutritional plans to use based on the subject being followed in their training.
It will also clarify and explore issues regarding nutritional supplementation for all athletes and users of gyms and sports centres in general.

The Masters is principally theoretical, but ample attention will be given to putting the concepts exposed into practice through the analysis of different case studies and the application of nutritional plans, but will also address any topics of interest to the students, based on their requests and personal experiences.

  • Legislation in the nutritional sphere: Who can prescribe What;

  • An overview of Anatomy and Human Physiology (the gastrointestinal, nephron urinary, and endocrine systems); 

  • An overview of Nutritional Biochemistry (macro and micro nutrients, metabolisms, and energy systems);
