Nutrition for Healthy Living

This Level 2 Award in Nutrition for Healthy Living is a course which is accredited by YMCA Awards. There are no prerequisites for this course, so long as you are over 16 years of age and are eager to improve your knowledge regarding nutrition and healthy eating. This course is suitable for learners of all ages, who wish to gain knowledge in diet and nutrition for your own use or possibly to enhance the understanding of nutrition to support your current job role.

There are two units to this course:

  • Unit 1 – Diet and Nutrition for Healthy Living. This unit focusses on macronutrients, what a healthy and balanced diet should look like, food groups, different food sources and how to ensure we are eating healthily.
  • Unit 2 – Food Groups and Digestion. At Fitness HQ we find this unit really interesting and discuss topics like these during our Personal Training Qualifications. To develop an understanding of the different food groups and also how food is digested is paramount to health and we’re really confident you’ll enjoy this unit.

    A great course and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The experience the tutors have is clear and the practical element of the course is really fun!

    I highly recommend Fitness HQ for any fitness or health related qualification. Their tutors are great and are really helpful. I left the Personal Training course feeling really confident and knowledgable. I can't wait to do other courses with them.

    Nicola, Personal Training Course, Manchester

    I really enjoyed my personal training course with Fitness HQ. The tutor will was really helpful and clearly knew his stuff. I would recommend Fitness HQ to anyone in Liverpool who is looking for a personal training qualification.

    I wanted to do a Sports Massage qualification for ages but I didn't really have the funds. FHQ helped massively with their payment plans. I highly recommend FHQ to anyone who wants to do a Sports Massage course or any other fitness qualification. Fantastic course and worth every penny.


    My only complaint is that the course has finished!! I enjoyed it so much I have decided to sign up to the Sports Massage course as well. If you're thinking of signing up to a Personal Training course then look no further, Fitness HQ are professional and excellent at what they do.
