Level 4 Certificate in Obesity & Diabetes

This is your opportunity to set yourself apart from other Fitness Professionals with the credibility and confidence of a Level 4 Obesity and Diabetes specialist.

Course Overview

Working with Obese clients is very different from working with a client whose BMI is under 29.9.

There are metabolic differences, hormonal changes, and exercise considerations to factor into your programming.

Plus the nutritional and behavioural change coaching needs extra attention to create sustainable and long-term habits.

Most level 3 FITPRO qualifications don't explicitly qualify you to work with high-risk Obese and Diabetic Clients.

A standard level 3 PT, Yoga, Pilates qualification allows you train clients up to BMI 29.9.

Meaning most FITPROs are unknowingly training clients that they aren't qualified to work with.
