You may have noticed when talking with one of our Storefront Team or in an email signature: "NASM Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist"... what the heck does this certification mean and why do we have it?
Midwest Meals NASM Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialists

This certification program is hosted by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), a 30 year old program that leads in Personal Training and NASM specializations. NASM is proudly accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) and has certified and rectified over 190,000 personal trainers in the last 10 years.

 

The Fitness Nutrition Specialist badge that our Storefront Staff and Customer Service are all required to hold is a scientifically grounded nutrition course! Why do we require our employees to take this certification program? It's simple, we're based on REAL, SCIENTIFICALLY VALIDATED NUTRITION and WEIGHT LOSS INFORMATION at Midwest Meals. This certification helps us give sound advice (within our scope of practice) and dispel nutrition FACTS from FADS.
