ICANS Launches Integrated Nutrition & Trainer Mentorship Programs

EAST GREENWICH, RI – 12 Jul, 2017 – The International College of Applied Nutrition & Strength (ICANS) is a new international health and physical performance company that will offer innovative nutrition and fitness trainer education programs to coaches, trainers, and nutritionists working in the field. The first two courses are a coach-to-coach mentorship program and a new nutrition tool for trainers and nutritionists to take a health-centered approach to optimizing physical performance and well being.

ICANS launches with two initial program offerings:

The Trainer Mentorship Program is a career-development course, incorporating all aspects of exercise science knowledge, including program design and conditioning, mobility, flexibility and tissue health, exercise technique, business tools for growing client base, best practices for optimizing body composition, and real-word periodization and recovery methods. The TMP is flexible and appropriate for a seasoned trainer wishing to grow their business or take athletes to the next level as well as a new trainer seeking the tools necessary to help clients feel and move better.

The TMP schedule has students attending five two-day in-person trainings with elite coaches over the course of nine months at sites in North America, Europe, and Australia. On-site sessions will include lecture and in-the-gym practical demonstrations. Students will use their coach mentors as knowledge resources during the time in between in-person trainings. They will also have the opportunity to network with other students to develop growth relationships on an international scale.

The Nutrition Medicine Profile course will cover topics including body composition analysis, blood sugar testing and interpretation, nutritional endocrinology focusing on the adrenals, thyroid, and pancreas, gut health, detoxification, business development, and clinical skills. Tools for optimizing physical and athletic performance with nutrition and lab analysis will also be covered. The NMP is ideal for fitness trainers who want to provide evidence-based nutrition information to clients and to nutrition practitioners interested in developing their client assessment and adherence skills.

The NMP is a 3-day on-site course offered in North America, Europe, and Australia. Once students complete the NMP, they have access to a wholesale supplement account to be able to purchase supplements at a discounted rate.
