I am already a Personal Chef, why should I now enroll in the Certified Personal Fitness Chef Program?
People hire a personal chef for one primary reason: They want to lose fat and become healthier. So, they are far more likely to hire YOU – a Certified Personal Fitness Chef – rather than a traditional personal chef.
An existing chef will want to become certified to appeal to health conscious clients. A fitness professional will want to become certified to increase income and create career diversity. A couple will want to get certified so they can work together in the fitness & nutrition market in their community. Be the first in your area to get on the leading edge of this expanding trend.
Why should you complete this program?
This course is ideal for anyone who wants or needs to learn new techniques or improve their knowledge in healthy cooking, meal prep, nutrition and related businesses.
Other professions such as a nutritionist, registered dietitian, weight loss counselors, personal fitness trainer, health coach, directors of schools nutrition programs, nurses, care givers, or any individuals who is interested in healthy lifestyles will also benefit from this professional training course.
Are the recipes easy enough for someone whose current knowledge of cooking is limited?
This course is a perfect start for beginners and intermediate cooks. It is very easy to follow, simple, and the number of ingredients has been purposely limited in order to simplify the preparation and cooking time. Once you master these basic techniques, more advanced techniques can be explored.
Once I complete my training, who will be my potential clients?
We are sure you have heard some or all of the following, “I wish I had more time for my family. I work long hours and do not have time to cook.” “Is there a healthy alternative to fast food?” “I wish someone would show me how to eat healthier.” “My parents are old and need help to prepare meals.” “I’d eat better if someone could cook for me each day.”
Your career options are endless.
Here are a few examples:
Executives & professionals, busy families, expecting mothers, surgery recovery patients, elderly, people who need to lose weight or improve their health, spas, gyms, private schools, businesses, churches, organizations, etc. And with the Internet, you can do just about anything you want!

Results we have
“WOW! I’m a Professional Chef! I help people get healthy and become happy. This course was the perfect complement to my wellness business!”
“Before becoming a Certified Personal Fitness Chef, I enrolled in the Food Psychology Coaching program. Together, these two credentials have given me the career of my dreams. I help people become healthy and make great lifestyle choices. Today, I make my own schedule, earn more money than I ever have, and help dozens of people each week. It’s awesome. I am grateful!”
I am a lifelong learner, and firmly believe no matter how much we know, we can always discover more!! My brother told me about Spencer Institute, and I thank him because it really amped up my skills in coaching clients. Being a busy mom, I absolutely loved the distance learning since it fits with my hectic schedule, and I was able to do the courses at my own pace!
I completed the personal fitness chef, fitness nutrition coach and kid’s nutrition specialist programs (some from NESTA) and I am so glad that I did. Most recently, I’ve been giving talks on healthy snacking to children and I am finding that it complements my cooking schedule. It’s a nice complement to the work I do in the kitchen. I just wanted to say thanks!
