Chelsea G., RD, METS I

The Level I Metabolic Efficiency Training Specialist Certification was a worthwhile and meaningful investment in myself and my career.  I use what I learned from the certification course on a daily basis with my clients, from MET testing to nutrition coaching, and my clients are feeling more energized, losing weight, and are able to minimize GI distress during long training sessions and competitions.  Bob Seebohar teaches in a clear, concise way and provides individualized support throughout the training.  I would recommend this certification to anyone who is excited to apply the latest in nutrition and training strategies!

Katie M., MS, MPH, RD, METS 1

In sports nutrition, if you want to do what’s best rather than what’s easy for you and/or your athletes then take the Level I Metabolic Efficiency Training Specialist certification. It focuses on not just performance but health, which is often times lacking in the traditional sports nutrition paradigm. The certification is very straightforward and serves as a solid resource for helping you apply nutrition to the real world. Even though the certification is beneficial for any health/fitness/medical professional, for Registered Dietitians, becoming a Metabolic Efficiency Training Specialist and learning from Bob Seebohar will help you carve a niche so you can set yourself apart in the dietetics field. I highly recommend it!
