Gym trainers are neither nutritionists or dieticians unless they have their college degrees including field service in that discipline. The trainers in our clubs (dotFIT licensees) are administrators of a nutrition program that is approved by the authorities (i.e. North Carolina Board of Dietetics standards, which surpass all others in the US) which provides nutrition recommendations for healthy participants. We have dieticians on our staff that create the programming/menus/supplements for their use with clients under proper direction with appropriate questionnaires including medical screening.
