What Our Students Say
Having completed two Master's Degrees and comparing the level of support I received vs what Martin & his team at MNU provide - OMG.
I received 1 to 1 support for my research thesis within both degrees and it doesn't even come close to what the guys at MNU do!
The Student Facebook group was an immense help and questions were always answered. Never did I feel I could not ask a question because I was embarrassed for not knowing the answer.
They also managed to create a community where students support other students! WOW.
Being a newbie to the world of nutrition, I wasn't sure what to expect but I can say I have loved every minute of it!
The level of support along the way, the amount of information, the quality of information, the sources of information (Mentoring Lab, research papers etc), the laughs - it was all way above my expectations!
I've not encountered this level of support or practical application in any course or degree program I've ever taken.
A key point to be made is that the tutors are not only academically knowledgeable but also have the real-world experience to back up what they're teaching.
I made so many genuine, extremely high-quality professional connections with other MNU students and former students who I am confident I can go to at any time as a sounding board, for insight on client issues, feedback on project ideas, etc. I honestly feel like I have a team of world-class nutrition professionals at my fingertips anytime I may need a second opinion. I also made a few truly dear, close friends who I can't wait to meet face to face.
To sum it up:
In addition to the incredible education, the personal and professional connections are something you simply cannot put a price tag on.
I can't thank everyone enough for a truly incredible experience! Each and every one of the MNU team.
This FAR FAR exceeded my expectations of the course. I really can't even put it all into words. Even the exams were outstanding. I never would have thought I'd be impressed with the exams.
The content and format were really outstanding. The Mentoring Lab has been incredibly valuable for practising what we learn through discussions, both in those where I contribute and those where I simply turn on notifications so I can follow other comments.
I'm proud to be in the same company as other MNU Certified Nutritionists!
MNU has given me the most relevant information needed for my career out of all of the courses I have previously done, including my Sport Science degree and Sports Nutrition Postgraduate degree.
The quality of the learning environment does not compare to anything else; MNU has been the one to fill so many gaps in my knowledge and give loads of practical insights that have and continue to help me massively - the value of the course is unbelievable and I’m so glad I did it!
Whilst doing MNU, I got a job at Sheffield Hallam Uni as their Lead Performance Nutritionist, which is amazing and I can’t believe my luck.
I know MNU has helped me so much this past year and given me more confidence to even be in a position to go for jobs like that.
Writing this and realising how far I’ve come is just credit to the MNU course, doing this course is one of the best decisions I've made!
After spending the past 11 years in a completely different industry (Mechanical Engineering) and studying courses from NVQ Level 2 to a Foundation Degree at University, I can honestly say MNU is the most comprehensive course I have ever been a part of.
The level of support for each lecture released weekly has been second to none, nearly an immediate response to any questions asked.
The online learning platform is without a doubt the BEST I've experienced, it's so user friendly and easy to track progress.
In terms of applicability to the industry, I am a career changer and at this time last year, I wouldn't have even comprehended setting up my own business, let alone speaking in front of a camera and uploading to social media or standing in front of gym members presenting nutritional principles.
I have no doubt that the course has given, and will continue to give me every skill I need to build on my business.
I've also made a huge leap in my career outside of nutrition and I fully believe that this course has given me the confidence to do so. The fact that I now question everything, challenge the status quo, have confidence in my ability to challenge others and also help to support others to become better people.
Many moons ago I couldn't decide whether to do pharmacy or nutrition at Uni and I went with pharmacy. I never envisaged that I'd now be in a position where I can potentially do both, but thanks to MNU - the knowledge, skills, fantastic level of support, business know-how accrued along the way, this has been made feasible for me.
I particularly enjoyed learning about nutrition & lifestyle management relating to chronic conditions such as CVD and diabetes as this is an area I can apply to my pharmacy work.
I will never forget MNU for now allowing me to pursue my passion as a side gig
(and potentially full-time in future.. who knows!).
The Mentoring Lab Facebook group provides amazing value when seeking advice, or bouncing ideas off of others. Most of all, I have been placed in contact with some amazing like-minded individuals who want to achieve the same things as me.
MNU is absolutely light-years apart from any of the other courses I've done.
So many "real-life" scenarios and practical information that will actually make me a better practitioner in real life but always with the option of delving deeper into stuff if you want to "geek out". Not to mention all the mentors and staff, who are really kind and helpful without making you feel silly or stupid.
It has completely changed what I knew about nutrition, but most importantly it has changed the way I am able to help people.
Having so many more tools in the toolbox and understanding when to use each one has been a transformation. I started out thinking I would just learn more about what I was currently doing in a competition prep kind of way and maybe ways to get people to understand that they just have to "follow a plan" (cringe). Well......of course this was sooooo much more and safe to say my mind was blown more than a few times!!
It really was an awesome experience and I had the absolute best time! I am very grateful and have the highest respect for everyone at MNU.
These guys are doing and continue to do an amazing job in an industry that is so overrun with "bad" and biased information and I just absolutely love the integrity with which everything is brought across along with Martin's humour! I look forward to many more years of learning!
I strongly believe in MNU and the values it provides. I never regretted it at any second. Access to the Mentoring Lab alone was worth the money.
Almost all the lessons provided valuable, important and applicable information. Even the short mentoring clips gave me a huge number of new ideas.
The course itself was great for refreshment on basic topics in the beginning but accelerated at the later stages with tons of interesting and new information, great homework, and a level of professionalism expected from big companies.
Even if you have a University education in the field, once you are past the basics, things will get extremely interesting. For beginners, it offers an amazing foundation.
Mac-Nutrition Uni has changed many things for me over the last year, both directly and indirectly.
This is what a year of MNU has done for me with a little bit of guidance, new ideas, and information:
• Writing and getting published in different printed magazines and a big, national newspaper
• Getting my website redesigned and improving the design, accessibility and SEO of it
• Increasing my clients by over 70% and being one of the most booked nutritionists here in Tokyo
• More confidence with difficult clients and helping to change the lives of multiple customers throughout the year
• Holding several corporate client talks for big, international corporations
• Generally providing a way better service and resource for my clients
For anyone contemplating doing the course, it will give you so much more than you expect and might even change your current situation and life. As the team would say, under-promise and over-deliver.
I've done 2 bachelor's degrees and a master's, and MNU has been by far the most enjoyable and practical course.
The level of support in the Student group was amazing, and the amount of detail the tutors would go into when answering questions was way more than what I've come across in universities.
The MNU tutors were much more approachable than 95% of my university tutors. Also, the bonding between students was also something I've never experienced in my university life, everyone was so supportive of one another!
My highlights have been getting a job as a result of doing MNU and the Body Composition Residential - It was very exciting to meet other people on the course and really feel part of a cohort.
My current manager found out I was studying MNU and quickly offered me a role in social media while I completed MNU. Once I graduate, I'll join the team as a nutritionist.
If it wasn't for MNU, I would probably still be unemployed 1 year after graduating from Uni!
I personally really enjoyed the course and found it a very rewarding experience. I particularly enjoyed the revision day lectures and found them really helpful when preparing for exams.
I have loved MNU, the lectures were great and comprehensive, and I learnt so much.
It was reassuring to know that if I emailed in for some help, I would always get a timely answer. Nothing has been too much trouble.
The Student Support Group was excellent at connecting me with my peers and sharing questions that I hadn't thought of yet. It helped so much and made me feel part of a community.
When I completed my degree I didn't receive this type of support. The lectures in my degree weren't recorded nor could we re-watch them to make sure we totally understood them. You could easily miss so much information.
The MNU format has really allowed me to learn at my own pace, not just memorise to pass the exams, but to really understand what I am learning.
I really enjoyed all the lectures - so many were amazing bombshells to my knowledge and very applicable to working in the field. I now feel very confident in being able to help my clients achieve their goals.
I am really looking forward to helping to change lives.
Thank you MNU I have honestly loved it all.
For actually being a practitioner and working with people, I would rate MNU far ahead of my degree.
I left university with knowledge, but no idea how to apply that to the person in front of me... or even how to get a person in front of me in the first place.
What MNU taught me was that I needed to expose myself (not literally).
I would never have put myself out there if the MNU community weren't also sharing their experiences and showing that we're all in the same place.
What amazed me the most though, was that every lecture provided a lightbulb moment. There were some lectures that I thought I wouldn't be comfortable with but the MNU team were able to provide a tangent from past experiences that really put things into perspective. This has broadened my own knowledge and has led to me being able to work with more people. Every lecture was entertaining and taught me something new. The information was delivered brilliantly, even research methods.
At the start of the course, my goal was to work in elite sport. I am now on the right path AND have practical experience with other populations.
MNU has been by far the best course I've done.
Support was there whenever I needed it. However, it wasn't needed often due to the level of information and clarity given throughout the course. It's second to none!
What I loved was the no-nonsense approach. You are told what you need to learn to work with clients. Plus given the extra links, homework and readings to go deeper into areas of interest or areas you want more info on. This leaves you feeling so confident and reassured that you don't have to know all the 'nitty-gritty' details.
The material on LEARN is well-organised and straightforward. I have to say I really looked forward to the new lectures, they increased my confidence every week.
Very early in the course, I got to inform a client about a low FODMAPS diet, which helped her massively reduce bloating and increase energy and confidence.
About 3 weeks after the PCOS lecture, I had a client come to me suffering from it. I started a plan with her and she has never had such good results.
Various clients who I had previously been trying to get to track their calories have been given different methods, which I learnt on MNU.
I loved MNU and would highly recommend it to anyone enquiring about it. MNU has left me with an amazing amount of confidence and knowledge to go forward and help my clients.
MNU is definitely the best nutrition course I have done! I am honestly so glad to have invested the past 13 months being part of MNU and learning everything that has definitely excelled my knowledge and confidence in the fitness industry.
The education I got from MNU is next level compared to other courses. I truly thought it was worth every penny. It really gave me the confidence to help my clients and put myself out there in the Southeast Asian fitness market.
This course really gave me the tools, and knowledge I needed to further my career. The quality of education and student support is top-level!
A highlight for me was applying the things I learnt on the course to real-life clients & learning more about nutrition for these clients - diabetic, pregnant, elderly, and PCOS.
After doing the Practical Nutrition Support module, I was able to gain the confidence to set up my online business! I would not have been able to without completing that module and gaining that extra knowledge.
I have gained so much confidence over the past 13 months while doing MNU, that I have started working with clients. I have 3 clients who have lost 8-10kg working with me this year. It's been amazing and I can't thank MNU enough for educating me with the right tools and methods that I needed to apply it to practice.
Taking the Mac-Nutrition Uni course has been so rewarding.
The MNU team have done such an excellent job planning out the order of the lectures, as well as the platforms the students use for lecture watching, and completing homework & quizzes.
The support was probably the best part of the whole experience, if you're able to take the Full With Honors I would recommend it immensely.
This course is definitely not without its challenges. There is a lot of information to learn and process however the course is perfect for teaching you exactly what you NEED to know to work with clients.
Being able to meet and connect with so many individuals from all around the world that share the same passion as you has been extremely comforting and motivating.
Overall I was thrilled with all areas of the course and I cannot wait to continue my education through the Mentoring Lab and to always have the lectures, model answers and notes as references moving forward.
I felt incredibly supported by both MNU staff and peers, it's a learning environment like no other. It has genuinely changed my life and I am now in a career I never thought would be possible, with a level of confidence I never expected I could achieve.
I only wish I'd done MNU sooner and saved myself £40k of debt getting a degree!
I really enjoyed learning how to be a good practitioner. I also loved the LIVE lectures, they really made you feel part of something.
I can't quite believe how different my career and life are now from what it was when I started the course. MNU has changed the way I think and feel, and I am so proud to be in the position I am in now.
I have started working with youth athletes in a high-performance program, with a few competing for GB. Most recently one athlete attended his first British Championship and made the final!
I can't thank you enough for providing such an incredible, engaging, thought-provoking and genuinely life-changing course. MNU has been a highlight of my life.
I've had some brilliant client successes by putting my knowledge into practice and I'm really proud and honoured to be in a position to help people; this is only the beginning. Thank you Martin and the MNU team, you guys are the best!
Well put it this way, I had already paid €500 for a Food & Nutrition MSc when I enrolled in MNU. I have not felt the need to commence the Masters and I don't think I will go back to it!
I have had my fair share of academic experience but the one thing I have been missing is the skills to put my knowledge into practice.
MNU provided me with the tools I needed to translate my years of learning into becoming a good practitioner.
Highlights for me were getting to know so many like-minded people, developing confidence in my knowledge and my capabilities and discovering my strengths and my ability to be a good coach.
MNU has provided me with the confidence to set up my own coaching business and to share the knowledge I have acquired to help others too.
I have really felt like a part of a community and being a member of the MNU family has given me the confidence and motivation to further educate myself in the world of nutrition and be the best practitioner I can be.
I've had so many 'aha' moments over the last few months whilst studying MNU and so many eye-opening realisations.
I feel so much more confident now about my ability to help clients and so excited to start practicing.
I was able to better understand my clients and significantly improved my consultation service.
The extra material provided and the model answers were a really nice touch. I felt extremely supported and loved the layout and design of the whole course. It has been an amazing experience and I'm so grateful I signed up.
All staff members responded to emails quickly and were always very helpful.
Being able to apply what I was learning in my work was a highlight for me, Module 4 specifically was very helpful.
The behaviour change lectures were really eye-opening for me and provided me with great tips, particularly the supportive watching videos from the Mentoring Lab.
MNU was far superior to any other course I've completed.
The level of information provided exceeded my expectations.
MNU is designed purely to help students to learn from qualified tutors about nutrition.
I like how well it is designed because even if you have no previous knowledge in nutrition, you will understand everything and will leave with a ton of knowledge.
No one is trying to sell you their supplement brand and promote new voodoo magic. This course is built on honesty with a purpose to educate as many people as possible.
I especially liked learning about behaviour change, psychology and strategies to use with clients.
MNU makes you think about how to increase clients’ adherence and consistency.
After completing MNU, I changed my approach to my clients and to my business. I am educating my clients because now I have better knowledge and understanding, which means I am getting better results with my clients.
MNU went well above any expectations I had of a nutrition course.
The biggest highlight has been the clarity that it has given me.
I stumbled across MNU, almost by accident. I was very close to signing up for BTN, when a friend in the industry who had already done BTN, recommended I look into MNU instead.
I came into MNU with a strong 'clean eating' bias and some signs of restrictive eating patterns in my own behaviours. However, I now have a far more balanced approach to nutrition
I’m embarrassed to say I had no concept of evidence based practice.
I now have a critical and evidence-based mindset which I can't help but apply to almost every area of my life.
The student support was fantastic; I have done an Open University course before and this was much better suited for me in comparison.
The Student group, The Mentoring Lab and the constant response and reassurance from tutors for myself and others was second to none.
I have loved MNU so much but it has highlighted to me that I am really keen to develop my skills not only in a weight loss environment but in a clinical one too and having the information on MNU has allowed me to appreciate where my interests are.
The course felt highly applicable to 'real life' and what I can imagine my job to be if I were working as a nutritionist, I feel like it has set me up really well for the world of work in nutrition.
It was such a useful course! So many myths dispelled throughout, that will save me a lifetime of nutrition confusion for my own health. Very empowering!
MNU exceeded my expectations at every single step of the way. I FIRMLY believe that is there is NO better practical nutrition course in the entire world.
I have done a few courses in my time...and I will say this... Before starting MNU I would have considered myself an expert in nutrition as a fat loss practitioner.
HOWEVER because of MNU I have leveled up significantly. I feel like other courses I have done give you facts, which is fine if you are pro-active and go off and learn how to put those facts into practice yourself and apply them in the real world, but MNU is a course FOR practitioners.
MNU exceeded my expectations by gradually taking you through a journey, starting with information and then bringing it back into the real world. That's what other courses miss off.
Martin says it's "the last nutrition course you'll ever need to do" and he is NOT lying. MNU was the full circle.
I learnt how to think better. I learnt how to critically evaluate things much better. How to decipher, find & use research. When to be open minded and when to stand your ground and how to balance being evidence based with real life "practitioner" anecdotal skills.
I think this course managed the impossible; it facilitates both people who have zero knowledge in the area of nutrition and those who have extensive knowledge but may lack knowledge in certain areas.
MNU is the most evidence-based and practical course I have had the pleasure of completing.
For me, the best thing about the course is that everything is backed by evidence which in the world of nutrition is rare.
All of the lectures gives the student guidelines on how the info translates to the real world.
The Mentoring Lab and the Student group makes this the most holistic course which creates a truly empowered group of people.
I also learned a huge volume on populations I would not generally work with. I look forward to continuing my education with MNU!
MNU has been by far one of the best courses I've ever done! Hands down. To think when I first got into the fitness industry, I nearly ended up doing BTN. I’m so glad that MNU was born.
The level of knowledge of the lecturers, the content, and how it is positioned and applied. How easy it is to digest by how it’s set out, but also by how it’s delivered. The systems that MNU uses to give the lectures. The ability to ask questions via many different pathways. All in all an absolutely brilliant 12 months. A course that I will and do happily recommend to others, especially if nutrition is a focus of theirs.
Not only that but the access to the Mentoring Lab is worth the course fees alone! Such a great place where up to date and relevant topics are discussed with no 'fitness gurus" spouting nonsense.
My personal highlights were being part of a like-minded group who are all trying to do the same thing; helping people to lead a healthier, happier life.
I am now in a much better position in terms of my business, which is en route to achieving my goal of doing this full time. I don't think I would've had the confidence or ability had it not been for MNU. It’s also provided me with the opportunities to grow and expand what I already did, to make it even better.
MNU go above and beyond with their level of student support.
I wouldn't change a thing about MNU. It was life-changing...really!!
I absolutely loved it and can't say enough positive things about it.
What I've learnt through MNU is fully applicable to my career as a Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach. I'm excited to share what I've learnt with my clients to get them the results they're looking to achieve.
I now feel comfortable working with clients who have diabetes, PCOS and the like.
I do very little marketing and have been able to sign on new clients organically, just from presenting simple, evidence-based information.
The only other nutrition certification program that I completed was Precision Nutrition, and although it was a thorough course, it can't compare to the content provided by MNU.
MNU has been fantastic and truly life-changing.
I've become so much more educated each week.
I actually now believe that I will be able to have a career that I love, thanks to this course.
My questions have always been answered, and I was able to complete the course in my own time. Having the option to go back and complete homework's to reinforce understanding was also a great help. I am so excited to continue to expand my knowledge with all that I have learned.
MNU has really made things clear, such as the myths in the nutrition industry and how foods should not be feared. I now understand not all headlines can be trusted.
I didn't want it to end and will certainly be looking out for further education/ Mac-Nutrition LIVE days.
I don't think any other online course would compare to MNU.
The content is applicable, easy to understand and the lectures are enjoyable to watch, you can tell how passionate the lecturers are.
If it wasn't for me doing this course, I would have left the industry by now.
The support from the staff is outstanding and the service provided on Mac-Nutrition Live days by each member of staff is first class.
I found the first module empowering as I have always struggled to understand the 'why' behind things, and I feel the research methods give you the tools to find things out for yourself.
Overall, considering what you get out of MNU, I would still have been happy if I had paid £15,000.
Mac-Nutrition Uni outdid my expectations and taught me a tremendous amount of valuable nutrition material in comparison to a lot of nutrition courses I have taken.
In my undergrad, I had taken nutrition modules spanning from food systems to biochemistry. MNU has done a fantastic job of taking only the relevant material and succinctly teaching it to its students.
There is a tonne of support coming from the MNU staff and they accommodate and mentor their students efficiently. The content taught at MNU has been very applicable in everyday situations and the learning is ongoing in the Mentoring Lab.
MNU has been very fulfilling, it is the last certification any nutrition practitioner would ever need.
Personal highlights for me include: meeting like-minded, friendly students/graduates through the Student group and Mentoring Lab, learning in-depth about CVD and saturated fats, the check-in weeks, being excited every week to learn something new (things I wasn't taught in my degree), working on the core skills and MNU helping me put myself out there.
It is truly an amazing community and I really am in awe of how MNU is changing the nutrition landscape. It has been such an incredible experience for me!
The effort made to aid MNU students and graduates to be wholly functioning nutritionists, practitioners, and business owners far exceeded that of what I experienced at university.
I feel I'm leaping ahead of the people I graduated with when measuring my knowledge and what I've been able to achieve with MNU at my side.
MNU helped set me apart from a group of coaches going for the same job opportunity.
My application was successful and they commented in the acceptance letter that it was because I had done MNU.
I've now recently attained a job as a resident nutritionist for a global supplement manufacturing company.
Mac-Nutrition Uni has been the single best decision and investment I have made for my career.
MNU provides evidence-based lectures that allow you to deliver effective nutrition strategies to clients.
It also has the best support system I have ever seen on a course, from the technology used and present lecturers to the support from MNU graduates/current students.
Although I have a background in food and nutrition, I changed careers many years ago and coming back into nutrition as a career changer again, the support has just been second to none.
Before applying to Mac-Nutrition Uni, I completed some other nutrition courses and they didn't even qualify as a pre-requisite for MNU. Having now completed MNU I can see why. It's a market leader and clear differentiator in the nutrition training space.
MNU has profoundly impacted me for several reasons. It's driven confidence, challenged my own biases and provided me with everything I need to effectively deliver a nutrition service and more importantly; evidence-based nutrition, enabling me to deliver with honesty and integrity.
The course has not only provided nutrition support and training but also business and soft skills too. This means you leave the course fully equipped with the knowledge of running a business.
Martin and the team have created something really special here and anyone looking to undertake a training programme in nutrition, look no further, nothing else touches the sides!
The knowledge and skills I gained through MNU, have allowed me to deliver my first set of public talks to local sports clubs and run a six-week nutritional course in a local company.
MNU has helped me obtain several 1-1 clients and I now have a far better consultation process in place. My clients have achieved better results because I've been able to articulate better why their dietary strategies aren't working.
I will genuinely miss kicking off each Saturday and Sunday morning with a lecture and a coffee.
I hope to use the routine I've established to continue my learning. I'll miss the tangents in the lectures, the info that can't be put on a slide - these were brilliant, often funny and always educational in some way!
MNU offered much higher levels of support and a sense of community compared to other courses I have completed.
The quality of the Mac-Nutrition Uni course was above and beyond what I had anticipated.
My confidence in my ability to coach others is far superior to when I started the course.
The level of the content by the end of the course was exceptional, and because of the journey taken through the lectures and modules, my knowledge and understanding far exceeded where I thought it might have been by this point.
The Body Composition and Case Study residentials were incredible. Being surrounded by like-minded people, who share your passions and who, by that point in the course, have developed the ability to think more critically, allows for amazing conversations and friendships to be made.
Being able to speak to the staff, who are amazing, is also a great part of these weekends.
MNU was presented beautifully and in a manageable way.
I've always been into nutrition but was so confused with the mixed messages, this course has given me the confidence to be able to see beyond the nonsense in our field and concentrate on what's important.
MNU was certainly more applicable with clients compared to other courses I've done.
With MNU I found it easier to apply the information with my clients. This is due to MNU containing a lot of the why and not just the what.
I absolutely loved the Behaviour Change lectures, I've always felt that this is the most important factor to teaching and training but I never knew where to find the best information for this, now I do!
I also enjoyed the Eating Disorder lectures, I'm so happy that I can spot such things and refer out if needed.
MNU is a beautifully curated and thoughtfully designed course, everything about it is amazing.
I have done various courses in nutrition and nothing comes close to the kind of practical insights shared at MNU.
I totally relate to the core values; Wisdom, Confidence and Integrity.
The LEARN platform is very user-friendly and The Mentoring Lab resources & expert lectures are a gold mine.
The course is so well put together that even the homework and further reading/watching recommendations were top-notch. The exams are very nicely designed and helped me to further cement my knowledge.
I started my business almost at the same time I had enrolled on the MNU course and everything I have learnt here has helped me ramp up my business both in terms of success with clients and monetary aspects.
The tutors are very qualified, supportive, professional and understanding. The support I received throughout was phenomenal.
MNU is the best Nutrition course in the world as it improves your critical thinking and practical application, as well as business and soft skills.
Module 4 is what really set the course content apart for me. It was a game changer for my business. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is looking for a top-class experience.
Every part of the MNU course is of the highest quality.
The level of student support is second to none, I was rarely left with any questions or confused about anything involved in the course because everything is very well thought out and clearly explained. The few times I did have questions, they were answered quickly and the staff were so helpful.
In terms of applicability to career or business, I feel much more prepared in pursuing a career in this industry now.
I previously completed an undergraduate degree at university, but it's only after completing this course that I feel confident in having a successful career and have a clear idea of how to go about achieving it.
I loved how practical everything was for the 'real world' and how I could see clearly how I could apply everything to working in nutrition.
In my undergrad, nearly everything was research focused which made it very difficult to apply things in a practical setting, but I feel that MNU bridges this gap very well. Getting insights into how staff have dealt with certain situations with various clients/settings was also a highlight.
Overall MNU is an excellent course that I would highly recommend to anyone!
All of the MNU lecturers were very engaging, the content was delivered in a great way. Teacher to student ratio is one of things I really valued, any questions I had were answered within hours/days and answered very well!
Unlike university, the MNU course is applicable to real life, as you are given the resources and tools to become a nutritionist.
The Mentoring Lab is a place where you're constantly learning and updating your knowledge which inevitably will help your clients.
The residentials for the Full with Honours students were a highlight for me, getting to meet the MNU team, people on the course and like-minded individuals!
I have learnt more in this one year than I did at university. The critical thinking aspect of MNU is not only useful for nutrition but also for life in general.
Dr Sara Mauthoor
The Mac-Nutrition Uni course was pitched perfectly to either those starting a career in nutrition as well as those already in the fitness industry.
The level of support in the student Facebook group was great. The number of students on the course is capped which allows more individual support and there was a lovely sense of support and community amongst the students.
My confidence has grown in the past year since doing MNU.
The 'talking to camera' core skill in Module 1 helped, as I have always had a public speaking phobia, and this forced me out of my comfort zone.
Setting myself the challenge of doing something totally different at the age of 40 (unrelated to my previous career) and achieving it is a real personal success. MNU is a thoroughly comprehensive and enjoyable course.
It fills me with pride to be able to say I am now an MNU Certified Nutritionist!
Everything about Mac-Nutrition Uni was incredible.
The practical experience that the tutors share when going through the lectures, is in line with the evidence-based nature of the course.
The information is taught in a way that allows for deep and practical understanding, it means you are learning concepts that are accepted by respected areas of science.
Essentially, MNU uniquely empowers you to work within the most respected, integrity-filled corners of the industry and empowers you to be able to speak the language of practitioners in this area.
MNU is creating an army of nutritionists who will change the world for the better. MNU has disrupted an industry, in the most positive and brave way.
The course has massively improved my life, my practice and can take credit for anyone whom I am able to help.
MNU has been incredible from start to finish. The professionalism, support and quality of information provided throughout the course has been excellent.
Everything that the course promises, it has delivered that and more.
This isn't just a 'turn up and pass' course, but instead you have to work hard, put the effort in, do the research in order to get the most out of the course and develop your knowledge.
I really enjoyed how everything was broken down and made simple at the beginning of the course. Modules 5 and 6, with the clinical populations, were great at applying knowledge to specific client populations as I feel these are areas that may come up when working with clients.
With the information I have been learning from MNU, I have been able to better serve clients with more qualified information and evidence-based and backed by research.
The course is truly incredible and I've recommended it to anyone that has asked me about nutrition courses. I loved Martin's sense of humour and jokes - making me laugh out loud at times.
It is clear that a lot of time, thought and work has been put into creating the course to make the information provided clear, concise and in a logical sequence.
My confidence regarding nutrition has massively improved since I started and I can't thank MNU enough. I still feel like I have so much more to learn but I am excited to continue my learning and development.
MNU is truly unrivalled with the quality of content, support and resources incomparable to any other course I have done.
It accounts for all aspects of preparing you for the industry whatever area you wish to specialise in. Primarily, the course content provides the obvious knowledge gains you sign up for, alongside this however you gain core communication skills, business development, self awareness, confidence, contacts and connection to a community of like minded individuals.
This community will be a long term support network and resource as I build on from being an MNU student to fully fledged practitioner.
My confidence and self belief have increased as I believed that the MNU team believed in me and that was priceless. It's changed the game for me.
I also found the residentials hugely beneficial for cementing some of what we had learnt, but also for building the core connections and support.
MNU is changing lives by guiding us to be the best practitioners we can be, instilling confidence, whilst providing empowering evidence-based information, thus changing the lives of those we work with.

I have been surprised by the endless content and provided information. I studied more seriously for MNU than while I was at Uni.
The Case Studies residential was totally mind-blowing! From the content, amazing staff, colleagues, and gaining skills that will give you the confidence to improve people's lives.
The support has been extraordinary and what is amazing, MNU feels like a family, which we will always love to be a part of.
The whole year with MNU has shown me how far I can go in 12 months. It has shown me that even if you feel invisible you are still visible and valued. I really cannot thank the MNU team enough for their endless support and warmth in every conversation. They are going to make a difference in people’s lives by giving us worth and self-belief.
I was planning on enrolling on MNU after previous students recommended it to me, and I now totally understand why.
I loved how relevant every bit of course was, I haven't felt this excited about learning in a long time!
I also found that MNU staff always show a high level of care, understanding and empathy that I haven't experienced anywhere else.
No matter how silly I felt my questions were, I always got super speedy, personal and reassuring replies, so I never felt that I was missing out on anything by not having live lectures.
During the course I was pregnant and I managed to not put on (almost) any body fat, just by following the teachings from MNU.
MNU is far superior to any other course I have undertaken. Not only because of the excellent content and delivery of the course, but also the exam format.
The 'turn up and pass' outcome of other qualifications has made me lose respect for previous educational platforms and leading organisations and therefore its qualified members.
The community that the course builds was a big highlight for me.
I have started a new hybrid health, fitness and nutrition club within my PT business that I have capped at 30 members.
All of the members are doing amazing and the weight loss and lifestyle change has been incredible. This would not of been possible without all of the knowledge I have gained from the MNU course.
I have since been awarded a civic award from my town for my positive contribution to the community.
I honestly have gained so much knowledge and experience through taking this course.
The content is pitched perfectly and I now feel completely confident that I can work with clients (and already am).
The staff are just fantastic - so knowledgeable but also really approachable and I've also met lots of people on the course who will be in my network for the future.
This is honestly the best course I've ever taken - that includes all school qualifications, my degree and any CPD courses relating to my old career in marketing to my current career as a personal trainer.
The content is not only useful for the real world, but it breaks down some difficult subjects into easy to understand parts. The support is unreal, with tutors available at any time, should you need it.
I loved learning the basics but then being able to apply them to specific scenarios i.e. diabetes, PCOS, elderly, athletes etc. I now feel like I can work with a huge variety of clients.
MNU has helped me to restore my faith in helping people.
I've gained a feeling of confidence in my ability from the layered learning approach at MNU.
I have done a lot of courses and MNU is definitely the best in terms of depth of knowledge and tying it into a business.
I have really loved this course and it came about at the right time, as I was thinking of leaving the industry after becoming disillusioned due to the amount of 6 week PT courses I had done.
The highlights for me were the residential weekends, it was great to meet other students and tutors.
The hotels we have stayed in for the residentials have been great with high-quality food and accommodation.
Having previously gone through an MPharm degree at the University of Bath, Postgrad Diploma at KCL and my PT course, the MNU course was far superior to all of the above due to the level of feedback and accessibility to contact all of the tutors at MNU.
The residential days were a great addition to the course, and I felt that I gained the most from these as they were a chance to practice practical application.
Being someone who learns best by active practice as opposed to reading/listening the residentials were hugely beneficial to me. Also having the chance to discuss any questions with the MNU team was so useful and they were great fun as well.
The deeper understanding that this course has provided me with has enabled me to provide much more effective support to my clients.
It has given me the confidence to split my Nutrition and Personal Training services to offer specific options to a wider range of prospective clients. I can’t fault it!
MNU was a life changing year of education.
The course has been set up to make the learning process as smooth as possible while allowing those who are truly interested in learning and developing their skills to do just that!
Any queries I had throughout the course were addressed swiftly and always in great depth.
The Mentoring Lab is an invaluable add on and there is so much amazing content in there that I haven't had a chance to touch on yet.
Other courses I have studied previously were incomparable to MNU.
The course has been the driving factor in finally giving me the confidence that I will be able to make a career out of coaching.
I now have an Online Coaching business and have an aim of building it to a point where I can leave my current job. Without MNU, I can say for sure that I would not be as confident on that journey and nowhere near as certain of it's success.
Module 4 is what really set the course apart for me. I took so much from it to apply to what I am currently doing and I can already see the pay off. The Live Check-in weeks were also brilliant.
MNU is by far the best course I have ever done, nutrition or otherwise.
The content is far more engaging than any other course I’ve completed. Every lecture I was making notes in my head of how it will be helpful to my business and my clients.
The level of increased self-development I experienced throughout MNU has been a game-changer for me. The homework includes things you will actually use in practice, every homework infographic I created I used immediately in my business. It was all so helpful and built my confidence throughout the course.
I cannot wait to continue my career now as an MNU certified nutritionist, I’m writing this before my results as I know that if I’ve not fully passed, it’s for a good reason.
Previous courses I’ve completed are mainly multiple-choice and the mark scheme isn’t as great as MNU. When I pass I will be proud to have gained this qualification knowing the level of dedication required to get there.
The jokes in the lectures are amazing. Even though they’re not ‘live’ - I was laughing with you it keeps things light and reminds you of ‘real life’ and that you’ll actually be learning this lecture to use in your practice so stay engaged.
The confidence I’ve gained in myself and my own knowledge has been fantastic and I am now more confident on exactly how to research if I’m not 100% sure about something. I’ve struggled with confidence over the years practicing in nutritional coaching but that is no longer a worry of mine.
Thank you SO much to Martin and the whole team at MNU. You’ve made it such a personal experience and we’ve never even met in person!
MNU can change your life and career - I felt confident enough to help my clients, friends, and family - even before the course finished!
MNU has helped me prepare for the 'real world'. Most courses just have content but this course is the full package. From the content, support, students helping students, and how to put your services into place with ideas of pricing and what we have to offer.
This course can prepare anyone for a new career and fill them with the courage to go and help whoever they want to with confidence.
The students all seem to be like-minded and become a family who just want to help each other. I have loved seeing other MNU students come to the end of their journey too. Watching them finish their exams makes me feel proud!
After putting out some online content, I was asked to do a zoom call for all things health and fitness in the local area.
I was so proud to be chosen because there are hundreds of personal trainers around.
Before I started MNU I had high hopes but the level of relevant detail in the lectures and support literature blew me away.
Everything is relative to my needs as a coach and future practitioner, with no filler content or waffle.
The presentation of the lectures was compelling, fun, informative & not once was I bored or disinterested.
Anytime I needed support from the staff, I got a response very quickly and there was always a relevant answer.
The Student group was an excellent resource, it was good to know I wasn’t alone and that there was a group of like-minded people to support each other.
Before signing up for MNU, I was always looking for ways to develop myself as a coach, but I hadn’t considered specific nutrition courses.
I saw a video where Martin was talking about MNU and I was in. Enthusiastic, genuine, knowledgeable (understatement of the century), engaging and funny.
This course is so amazing and has truly changed my life.
MNU exceeded my expectations and has been worth every single penny, and more!
Student support was exceptional, especially during COVID where financial struggles were treated with care and empathy.
The course content is amazing, extremely thorough, no-nonsense, no fillers, every topic, and lecture have a purpose in cementing your learning and progression. I especially like the LEARN platform where you can see your progress, all of the modules are set out clearly and keeping track of everything is much easier.
I feel more confident to give advice in the future and provide resources for people who have felt as lost and confused as I have in the past regarding nutrition.
The Mentoring Lab is gold and such a valuable resource to practitioners in the field.
Module 3 (Principles of Nutrition Support & Advanced Nutrition Theory) was a particular highlight. It was where I started to understand how to think critically, unlearn what I thought I knew to be true and upgrade my knowledge.
There are honestly too many highlights to list. MNU helped me to identify and heal my relationship with food, which was a big one.
I've been blown away by the amount of content and topics covered in MNU.
It is so much more than just an 'advanced nutrition course', which is essentially what I was expecting.
I honestly feel so much more confident with the knowledge I have learnt from MNU!
I'm ready to work with clients and get them great results.
I also know that the Mentoring Lab will provide a wealth of support and further development post-MNU.
The level of student support on MNU was so much better than when I was at university!
The manager of my gym saw me in my MNU T-Shirt and said they would like to discuss how I could integrate my service into their facility in the future.
This was encouraging for me as I am a career changer!
My highlights of MNU were the access and ability to search the Student Groups for discussion on interesting topics, finding other evidence-based practitioners to follow on social media and interact with, and the sense of comradery with fellow students.
I really felt a sense of belonging.
I've had an influx of inquiries since sharing that I have been studying the course.
Compared to my PT certificate and University degree, MNU was absolutely a superior course. It is more comprehensive, gives better advice and mentoring on how to use it in business, and offers more personal student support.
Compared to my degree, MNU delivered the same quality of teaching in a quarter of the time and at a fraction of the price!
Compared to college, MNU provided a solid student support group from the faculty themselves.
There were loads of students from around the world, so it could have been difficult to engage, luckily the student group made contact quite simple.
The greatest aspect of MNU is how considerate the team is with people's lives and providing their students as much convenience as possible while sustaining high learning quality.
The course material was created in a way for people of different backgrounds to understand. I appreciate how comprehensible the lectures were even if I didn't have any prior experience.
The MNU staff are passionate about what they do and helping others, so it provided lots of integrity to believe what they say and feel encouraged. I actually went through a binge eating "phase" (I cannot label it as a disorder since I have not been properly diagnosed by a professional, so it is just a self-diagnosis) just last year.
When MNU covered Eating Disorders, it made me realize what the symptoms were and how relevant it was to me. Now that I have a better understanding of nutrition, it has helped me improve my eating habits. Thank you MNU!
Paola Petri Ortiz
Doing MNU has been one of the best decisions of my life.
I enjoyed that the course has taught us not only information but how to think critically and keep learning by ourselves.
MNU was much better than any other course I've done, for so many reasons.
The level of involvement of the teachers and their personal care for each one of us was great.
Highlights for me were learning how to read research and think critically, the excellent eating disorders lectures and how students were treated as people, not just numbers.
I also loved how we've learned about advanced concepts in such simple terms. It has helped me massively and I can't wait to help other people now! :)
I would highly recommend this course!
The realistic evidence-based content provided on MNU was very relatable to clients I was already working with.
My main success story from MNU is gaining the confidence to put myself out there and create informative videos and posts on topics I thought the public should know about.
I also feel I can provide a lot more solid evidence-based information to my clients in the gym to help them achieve their goals.
I found MNU brilliant, especially the Mentoring Lab and Student group.
Any questions I had in relation to lectures, quizzes, homework or exams seemed to have been already put forward in these groups so it was nice to find similar individuals, with similar ways of thinking.
Until I did MNU, I would never have had the confidence to do nutrition seminars for large companies.
Since starting MNU, I have done about 5 corporate workshops for the top companies in Northern Ireland and hosted my very own 'Nutrition and Female Health' event.
The event attracted 230 attendees, who came from all over Ireland, which is my proudest moment to date.
I currently work alongside top medical and industry professionals delivering nutrition and female health workshops and have recently been approached by schools and Universities.
Having done several other nutrition courses, I know that there is no comparison to MNU.
The highlights for me were the weekend residentials and the new Mac-Nutrition family that I now belong to!
MNU was a real eye-opener on how much misinformation and bad practice there is out there, with a lot of people giving wrong nutritional advice without having proper knowledge. I could see how much effort went into the course and the commitment the team have to spread evidence-based information.
I really enjoyed Module 5 with the guest lecturers and their insights from working with patients or clients for the NHS or private practices. I found it extremely interesting to see the application of nutrition in real-life scenarios.
It has been an amazing year and I've gained so much knowledge during this journey with MNU. I have to say, I leave MNU wiser and more confident to speak up for science.
I really appreciated the speed at which questions were answered for each of the lectures, and the human touch the MNU tutors give to each question or request.
I have done other courses online and, due to the number of students they accept per intake, sometimes the wait for an answer could take days, but with MNU it was literally a matter of minutes!
For starters, MNU is evidence-based and helped me to fully understand the how’s and why’s without just being given or told the information.
Having the Student Group was great to interact and share thoughts, even for someone who is not great at social media.
While doing MNU, I had a new lease of life and appreciation for the course and content. I truly started to love what I was doing and why I wanted to do this.
The Special Considerations for Clinical Populations Module was by far the most enjoyable for me. I love helping people and having the knowledge now to potentially change someone's well-being is really empowering, I get such a buzz helping others with their own health.
I have started helping clients with PCOS. Before MNU I wouldn’t have had much of an idea as to how I could help, but after MNU I have so much knowledge and I really feel I can help people with PCOS.
Using the skills I have learnt from the course I have found my consultations have really improved, I can now extract so much more information from clients which helps me advise them better.
A massive thank you to everyone at MNU for all your great work and for restoring my faith in the health and fitness industry, like massively!
Mac Nutrition Uni is an outstanding course.
I loved how everything on the MNU course was evidence-based, linked to research and encouraged critical thinking throughout.
The course structure and flow made sense, with each module building on the previous ones.
The homework brought each lecture to life with practical applications which will support future business practices and client needs.
I also appreciated the further reading, lectures and the ability to dive into the Mentoring Lab to learn more.
The core skills also supported and tested my learning within a module.
In comparison to other courses I’ve done, MNU has the highest level of detail and was very obviously designed with students' future careers in mind rather than just a tick box CPD.
The course content was applicable information that dispelled popular misconceptions that I had. At the same time there were many resources available to cover any subject in a lot more depth, should students have the time and desire to learn more.
The level of support available was outstanding, from the emails to the Student support group. There was never any point that I felt like I was doing it alone. I knew I would get help quickly should I want or need it, which was very important for me and impressive for an online course in the middle of a pandemic.
The highlight for me was the residential that I attended, so much so that I think I’d like to do the other one and upgrade to the Full with Honours course.
Another highlight was the clinical populations module and the performance nutrition programming. I liked how the lectures in these modules were simplified to give me a structured plan on what can be done in terms of nutrition, which I think will be very useful in the real world.
As I’m already working as a PT, I feel that MNU has helped me work with all my clients. I’ve been able to use different strategies with different people, for example, I helped a friend of mine cut weight properly for an MMA fight which he was then able to win.
I’ve also had a weight-loss client who was losing weight for IVF treatment. She lost the weight and then got pregnant just before her treatment, which was great!
Having completed other similar courses throughout my military and personal training qualifications, MNU has been exceptional with student support.
MNU exceeded expectations at all levels to provide feedback, answers to queries and group discussion with total professionalism but with a warming attitude.
As a career changer, despite feeling nervous getting out there and making my impact, I feel more confident than I would with a degree!
This is an empowering course, that prepares you to HELP real people.
The quality of learning was extraordinary covering topics I thought I knew and others that I didn't even consider, but which dovetailed with the demand, needs and necessity of today's world.
I have never done a course where I completed it and thought to myself that life would never be the same again.
A highlight for me was learning from the lectures and then sharing what I learnt with a degree of enthusiasm for nutrition that I didn't know I had! MNU has lit a fire inside me, the interest was always there but MNU developed the passion.
I started this as a journey of self intrigue, to help my own nutrition. I completed the course as a passionate practitioner. Speaking to people in gyms, friends and family I have helped more people than I could have imagined.
I have developed my own unique way of portraying evidence-based nutrition and health to help people and feel as though my life has changed. With all the challenges of this year, I am confident in saying that MNU has been the best course decision of my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Martin and the team. You have done something truly amazing in this world.
MNU has changed my life and given me some direction in a time where I thought I was without.
I have done academic study up to MSc level and various CPD courses, and the level of support offered from MNU was vastly above the others I have done.
I have been working with endurance athletes for a while, and I really didn't expect to enjoy learning this area as much as I did, to the extent I am going to totally revamp how we deliver for the performance athletes, based on what I learned on MNU.
In terms of client success, I have been working with a weight-loss client whilst studying with MNU, and she has lost 22kg with me and has managed to comfortably maintain for 12 months so far!
There is no doubt in my mind that my doing MNU, and having more confidence in my ability to teach and apply to the individual, has played a big part in my clients' success.
The MNU team are doing great things in nutrition and I am so glad to be a small part of it!
Mac-Nutrition Uni will blow your mind. For anyone looking for a nutrition course that you can fully trust, MNU is the only one to look to.
The level of student support was excellent and the Student Facebook Group was great, with responses back within 24 hours!
Module 4 was probably my highlight! The applicability to career and business was hugely beneficial as it has allowed me to add that extra tier to my business.
I honestly wouldn't change a thing about the course, the lectures were fluidly laid out and very easy to follow. The wealth of education given, not just theoretical but also practical understanding of subjects was invaluable.
I would easily place MNU above other nutrition courses I have done.
Dr Megan Michaux
MNU is much better than any other online study I have ever done.
The Student group, the accessibility of tutors via email as well as other students pitching in with questions and answers made it feel very interactive despite being entirely online. In terms of it being useful, I cannot stress enough how enlightening it has been.
My medical degree did not focus on nutrition for weight loss at all, and the lectures I have here will stand me in good stead to be a much better doctor.
As a doctor, Module 5 was a highlight for me. Seeing evidence-based approaches to lifestyle disease was really helpful to my practice. I also loved the IBS lecture, as it is something I often see but received very little information on during my studies.
Another highlight for me was actually seeing a patient to who I offered a free hour to discuss her nutrition. She is obese with multiple lifestyle diseases and struggles with psychological issues around food. Since the session, she has managed to lose almost 10kg and has started counselling for her possible eating disorder. It was so exciting for me to see her at follow up, and I hope to keep supporting her on a journey to being healthy in all ways!
In the last 3 or 4 years, I have found a passion for nutrition and training. Finding this course has just solidified it for me.
Not only has it had a positive influence on my medical practice, but it has also helped me grow personally.
I can better help my patients, with nutrition knowledge of course, but also with concepts like motivational interviewing. I feel that this course will help direct my practice of medicine into a field that I enjoy.
MNU has had a profound impact on my life. It has opened up possibilities for my work, changed my goals for the future and set me up to have a more positive impact on those around me.
MNU has changed my perspective on learning massively.
Doing a course is one thing, but to do a course with high standards, great ethics and a want to improve and help the industry is another.
The level of student support surpasses any other course I have done by far. It definitely feels more of a community rather than a student/teacher environment and having the ability to ask questions in the student threads on Facebook is excellent.
The residential days really helped to boost my confidence. I was also impressed with how the tutors knew everyone's names. I came away confident that I would know how to apply the skills we learnt into a client environment.
I also enjoyed the live check-in weeks, it makes such a difference when you can actually see and communicate in real-time with people.
Mac-Nutrition Uni is getting around the globe. A head-hunter messaged me on LinkedIn from Dubai looking for a Nutritionist, it's good to know there are opportunities out there!
The student support at MNU was insanely good. It was a constant reassurance knowing that someone was there should we need them (either via the Student Group or email).
The lecture content was second to none, each lecture was informative, fun, knowledgeable, and sparked critical thinking, it just blew my mind.
Highlights were being able to inform family and peers confidently. I was able to assist my mother-in-law with ways to change her diet to help her control her type 2 diabetes.
I also used some of the knowledge from the PCOS lecture to advise an old school friend on steps she could take to control her weight.
Completing MNU has changed my life!
MNU is the real deal. The course taught me everything nutrition-related from the fundamentals of physiology, health, and fitness, all the way to the fine details of optimizing athletic performance with different styles of athletes and how to approach clients with specific diseases and illnesses.
A personal highlight for me was getting evidence-based approaches to some complicated topics from a group of people in the industry who I respect and trust.
After MNU I feel comfortable knowing that I have the tools and knowledge to take on clinically vulnerable clients who are looking for guidance and support from me.
Toward the end of completing the course with MNU my sister, who is pregnant, told me she was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. This was a topic that I had never touched on or even heard of before MNU. Thanks to the skills and knowledge that I gained with MNU, she was able to get all of her health markers back to normal levels in a very short period of time.
I have been able to help many of my clients improve their recovery going into athletic competitions specifically from the knowledge that I gained through MNU.
Overall, thanks to the knowledge that I have gained through this course, I went from being a kind of confident nutritionist to an extremely confident nutritionist, knowing that everything that I am recommending to my clients is evidence-based, safe and effective.
The MNU team made a damn solid course and one that I have already recommended to dozens of people. Keep doing what you're doing and I'm looking forward to seeing what your team is developing in the future!
Mac-Nutrition Uni is hands down the best nutrition course I have done. The depth of the lectures, the Mentoring Lab and the Student group inspire you to want to learn and understand more.
Even my Sports Science degree didn’t have the level of detail that MNU has. As a personal trainer, MNU has given me a level of confidence in my ability to support clients that I didn’t know I could achieve.
The endurance lecture was a highlight and as a runner, this was very interesting and helpful. The advanced muscle gain and fat loss lectures were invaluable for helping clients along with so many others.
Personally, my confidence in coaching consultations has increased so much, I feel like I can really help clients and advise them to achieve much better results. I have had one client go under 3 hours in a marathon for the first time.
Honestly thank you so much to the MNU team for putting together the worlds best nutrition course. It is not only a course that is levels above any other but resources such as the Mentoring Lab really fuelled my passion to learn and become the best practitioner possible.
MNU is by a million miles the best nutrition course I have ever done, and I did 3 before this, thankfully I don't need to do anymore after MNU!
There have been so many highlights, it's hard to choose my favourite, but I have come out of this course a changed man!
My confidence around nutrition as a subject and the high quality of information I can provide, off the top of my head is something I've always wanted and this course has provided.
I have finally learnt how to think critically, which I will continue to do...until the end of time.
I have learnt to have debates with like-minded people and have had the pleasure of meeting some truly incredible friends.
I now have the confidence to work with people and actually feel that I can help them achieve their goals, that feeling alone is worth every single penny I paid.
I just can't thank you all enough for everything you do for your students, and all the support you provide to everyone involved in MNU and the Mentoring Lab.
I have not done other courses in nutrition, but I have studied software in college. I much preferred the way MNU was done. I thought the content delivered was much better and the support was always there if needed.
The homework was always relevant and provided a purpose for either further learning, better understanding or just helping to create social media content.
A personal highlight of mine was getting an understanding of things like cardiovascular disease and diabetes as well as becoming more confident in my knowledge of energy balance and how to properly research papers.
Since MNU I have been a guest speaker at an elderly group meeting about general health, setting up a presence on social media, educating them in nutrition and helping them reach their goals.
My favourite part about MNU though is having confidence in my knowledge and knowing it's based on evidence that I can look at myself rather than someone else's ideas out of a book they wrote.
I have loved the course and would not change a thing. All the information was amazing and presented in an interesting way. Not just reading power points, but explaining and providing extra nuggets of info along the way.
MNU delivered way beyond my initial expectations, which were high anyway!
This is the first time I’ve finished a course feeling like I know enough, if not more than I need to, to deliver my services in confidence.
Through the course, I've developed and challenged my mindset to think more critically. Meeting the team at residentials and networking with other like-minded people was a highlight for me and my favourite module was 5!
I have managed to hold eight different talks now, which I hadn’t dreamed of doing before but I now love. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the confidence I gained through MNU and the support from other students in the Mentoring Lab.
Even though the stress of the exams is over, I’m actually gutted that it’s come to an end. Choosing to study with MNU was easily the best decision I’ve ever made!
Mac-Nutrition Uni is unequivocally the best learning experience I have ever had.
The quality of course content and the practical design of everything including the lecture format, learning support, additional resources, revision material, exam period, I could go on...completely blows my red brick undergraduate degree out of the water.
It's hard to pick a particular highlight but I love the way the course brings together basic theory with advanced nutritional principles and practical insights to give such a comprehensive and real-world understanding of nutrition.
MNU is the perfect preparation for someone looking to become a practitioner in the nutrition industry.
This course has definitely improved my personal nutrition from a goal-specific perspective which has been great.
Taking part in MNU has been an absolute pleasure and I have loved being a student throughout. Thank you so much to all of you at MNU for making the course such an interesting, funny, inspiring, and useful experience. I'm definitely going to miss following along to such brilliant lectures each week.
The support from the MNU team is incredible.
I never felt worried about studying online because I think their level of support is even better than if you were studying at University.
The email response time is very quick, and there is always someone in the student support group to help.
MNU helps you understand practically what it would be like in a real-life situation helping clients rather than just all book knowledge.
The amount of knowledge I have acquired, my confidence in being able to practice, and the friendships I have made have been my highlights of the course.
I have loved every minute of MNU and I'm very sad now it's finished!
MNU is the first nutrition course that I've done and undoubtedly my last, this course has been invaluable to both myself and my business.
The structure, the support, the knowledge taught, the tangents... it's been truly amazing and I can't thank Martin and the team enough!
I can't explain how much this course has helped me over the past year. As someone that suffers mentally, alongside intermittent lockdowns, it has given me SO much focus.
The MNU team are SO knowledgeable and funny, but also very caring and responsive. There are so many elements that have made it a truly incredible experience.
I have been posting a lot on social media, passing my newly learnt knowledge onto everyone, and applying it to my clients too.
From my side of things, I feel much more confident when speaking about nutrition that people have even commented on it. From my clients' side of things, they are achieving better results and as a result, are praising me (thank you MNU!!!)
Seriously, this course has been the best thing I've EVER done. There's never a dull moment and the content is always so so engaging.
Thank you MNU for putting together a truly life-changing course!
I absolutely loved my Mac-Nutrition Uni experience!
I have previously completed Precision Nutrition and the amount of value provided by that course when held up against MNU doesn't even compare.
The depth at which each subject was covered at MNU was impressive, making this course go far beyond any expectations I had going in!
Mac-Nutrition Uni has definitely helped me to feel much more confident with my knowledge of nutrition and coaching concepts.
If I were to do MNU again, I would absolutely wait until it was possible for me to fly out from the US for the residentials, as I do feel as though these would have been so important and impactful.
It took me a very long time to decide whether I wanted to study MNU, but I'm very glad I decided to and feel lucky that I was given the opportunity.
The residential weekends helped me to overcome many boundaries, encouraged me to get out of my comfort zone, become more confident and made me believe in myself more too.
The Mentoring Lab group threads were useful to have and the tutors always provided excellent feedback and explanations on these.
MNU made me feel like I have so much to offer, so much knowledge to share, so many tools to use, confidence, critical thinking, Motivational Interviewing skills, it's just amazing how much you learn!
MNU massively exceeded all other courses that I have done previously.
After completing other courses, I felt I had a reasonable baseline of nutrition knowledge, but nowhere near enough to practice as a full-time nutritionist.
I'm so glad I invested in MNU, it's been a life-changing experience and has allowed me to change careers to a full-time online nutritionist.
The student support was very good, quality of learning exceptional, applicability to business/career was good and access to the Mentoring Lab means further business and career learning is possible.
The course has given me the freedom to live the life I've been dreaming of.
MNU is the most enjoyable course I have ever done. The course layout, content and delivery are extremely professional without being too formal.
Martin and the team are friendly, encouraging and incredibly informative throughout. Even the most complex subjects are explained really well and broken down to make the information easier to understand.
I set up an online coaching business last autumn and found the Module 4 content a fantastic resource to point me in the right direction.
I have already become so much more confident as a coach within my personal training and online coaching business, all thanks to MNU. It has helped to cement knowledge I already knew from previous courses by explaining it in so much more detail.
More importantly, it has also helped to debunk some beliefs that I used to have and has encouraged me to be more evidence-based. The importance of critical thinking is another valuable idea that I have learnt, which has also helped me become aware of any previous bias that I had without realising.
I loved MNU and I am so sad it is over. It was a truly tremendous experience from start to finish and I will recommend this course to anyone serious about learning more about nutrition!
I came to this course from a science background and I found the level of information given both accessible and incredibly interesting.
The layout of each lecture is both logical and impactful. Firstly presenting the relevant, scientifically-backed research, followed by how this impacts the nutritional recommendations you make.
I also especially appreciate when there isn't evidence for something that appears to "work", it is highlighted as an area to pay attention to and to look for further research in. This fosters a lifelong learning ethos.
The course is very comprehensive in the preparation of nutrition professionals. The tutors are regularly reminding you that this is just the start of your career, and to be a good and effective practitioner you must be willing to continuously learn, and potentially change your ideas.
The additional resource of the Mentoring Lab is also fantastic. While I have barely skimmed the top of what it offers, it is obvious that it has fantastic further nutrition lectures from experts as well as lots of business resources.
This course didn't just apply well to my current position as a personal trainer in a mid-level gym, it opened a brand-new career that I'm now very eager to begin and feel equipped to get started.
No other course I have done even compares to MNU. The level of quality, depth, applicability and detail has surpassed any other courses I've done in the past and what I anticipated the course to be like.
Student support actually existed, which is a huge plus and is not the case for some other courses I've taken.
I appreciate the cohesive nature of the student forum. It was nice knowing that it was there if I needed it and it was so helpful when I did.
I love this course. I'm so sad to be done, but I can't express how grateful I am that it exists and that I got to be a part of it.
From start to finish, MNU covered every base I needed to be successful as a practitioner.
From the support given by staff, to the resources provided during the course, to the amazing MNU Mentoring lab, I am incredibly equipped to help others in my line of work.
I wanted to learn how to be a successful practitioner without having to do a four-year university course with a high price tag and classes that wouldn't help me in the future. MNU was affordable, well rounded and thorough.
The course showed a practitioner how to build resources for a potential client, in an easy to understand format. Having a group of peers who were incredible to bounce ideas off and connecting with others via the Mentoring Lab Facebook group was hugely valuable in taking my education to the next level.
The practical nature of MNU and the priority of preparing students for real-life scenarios has been brilliant.
It was amazing to have a course that took me on a journey from the basics, research methods, all the way to clinical and performance nutrition.
The confidence I have now is a highlight for me, as well as being part of the MNU community.
The Mentoring Lab is comforting to have as I continue to develop. It has been the best value for money spent in my entire life!
I feel motivated and excited for the future and that is all thanks to the support from MNU and the encouragement the course and the team have given me.
I really don’t think you'll find another course that has as much support as MNU!
The course has been very applicable to my already established personal training business as I have been helping my PT clients with their nutrition too.
I loved the support and the sense of community from everyone, tutors and students.
Each week I watched each lecture twice and by the end of the course, I had seen each lecture between 4-5 times, they never got old!
I hate that it’s over but I am also excited to move forward and help more people with what I have learned in this past year.
It has been one of the most fulfilling things I have done.
Words cannot express how amazing Mac-Nutrition Uni has been.
From the easy-to-understand educational content, wonderful support, and everything in between, it is truly the best course on the market.
Before MNU, I had strong concepts and ideas about real health. Early on in the course, you are invited to challenge your own ideologies and biases around nutrition and its application. It was such a memorable task, something I doubt any other education institutions promote. That was the beginning of a profound change in myself.
I have now adopted a more critical mindset when presented with not just nutritional information, but any information.
This critical thinking mindset is a constant theme throughout the course and you are motivated to become curious and question everything. This unique skill has made me more confident, passionate, and eager to help others by demystifying the space of nutrition.
MNU is more than just a nutrition course, it has taught me so much about myself, the industry and my business, and completely changed my view on life.
I feel so grateful that I found MNU as it has allowed me to follow my passion and has set me ahead in life by leaps and bounds in just a year.
The level of student support on MNU was fantastic - it felt very personalised!
I chose to do MNU over going back to uni to do a nutrition degree & I'm SO glad I did.
MNU is set up for real-life situations. I feel very prepared for life as a nutritionist!
The lecturers were all absolutely fantastic! Clear, extremely knowledgeable and very personable.
MNU has set me up for what I'm sure will be a rewarding career as a really good nutritionist.
I need to practice and build on my service delivery, but MNU has given me the skills and knowledge to do this and much more.
The course was brilliant! I loved every lecture.
Mac-Nutrition Uni was clearly focused on providing relevant information without the unnecessary detail that is often included in university courses. The focus on evidence-based practice and developing practitioners with integrity was clear.
MNU also provided regular check in's and opportunities to ask for support if needed. A highlight for me was meeting the MNU team at the Case Studies Residential weekend.
I particularly enjoyed the business and behaviour change lectures as they supported my growth as a health and fitness coach.
I enjoyed Module 4 and 5 especially as they gave excellent practical advice and insights on working with clients. Making my MNU themed Instagram posts was also a lot of fun!
MNU has definitely helped me to improve the service I provide with all of my clients and helped me to feel confident charging more.
Thank you all for your time, expertise and just generally being an awesome bunch of humans!
Mac-Nutrition Uni has been a game-changer for me, the course was better than I could have ever imagined!
Prior to signing up for MNU, I received my Bachelors in nutrition. Unfortunately, instead of feeling confident and educated, getting my degree was very frustrating and I questioned if I had what it took to actually be a nutritionist. I came very close to giving up on my dream of changing career.
Luckily MNU turned out to be the complete opposite experience. I can say now that signing up for MNU is the best decision I have ever made. It’s hard to put into words how valuable it has been for my career.
MNU has given me so much more than just in-depth nutrition knowledge. The AMAZING team at MNU have also taught me how to apply what I have learned to be a good evidence-based practitioner and their support along the way was priceless!
MNU is the first and only course I have taken where I have felt like the lecturers really care about what they're teaching as well as their student's success.
I can’t thank the team enough, if I could I would rate MNU with 1,000,000 stars!!
Mac-Nutrition Uni is the most comprehensive nutrition course I've studied to date and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to offer legitimate nutrition services to their clients.
Modules 5 and 6 really filled in a lot of gaps in my current knowledge and practice, even though I have been working with clients on nutrition for the past 7 years.
I have now set up a business with a team of coaches, I think this is where the application of the MNU learnings will really come to the forefront as we build and improve our coaching systems.
The fact that there are so many options to extend the course is great if you needed more time, and it was awesome in my case.
Mac-Nutrition Uni is the best educational experience I have ever encountered and that includes school and college.
From start to finish it has been a positive, uplifting, and inspiring experience.
I am so glad I went Full with Honours as the interaction with both tutors and coursemates is invaluable.
I have genuinely loved every aspect of this journey.
I never once thought about the cost aspect of this course which I can't say about all the courses I've taken!...In fact maybe too cheap on reflection!
The level of information on MNU was way more in-depth than other courses I have done. I definitely now feel more confident with my skills and nutrition knowledge.
All the content was also backed up with science, which is what drew me to this course in the first place.
The level of support from the MNU team and other students has also been outstanding. All questions were always answered in our Student Support group.
Module 5 was by far my favourite part of the course. Learning about different clinical considerations was important as I can talk about them confidently now. It was an eye opener for me. Having experts in these clinical considerations such as PCOS, Diabetes, Obesity, CVD, and ED was super valuable to understand the impact of nutrition on these matters and our scope of practice.
The Mentoring Lab was definitely a highlight as it does not only provide additional nutrition resources but also guidance on business and soft skills.
After finishing MNU I definitely feel more confident when picking up my phone and talking to my audience about a specific nutrition topic. I feel like an expert in the area.
The MNU guys rock!
There is no comparison to MNU - you get such good support.
It's relevant to 'actually' working with people who have real-life issues.
Rather than learning parrot-fashion from text & then not being able to apply it.
The residentials were fab and were definitely a highlight for me.
Being able to ask questions and chat with other students on the residentials has been really beneficial.
The exams are challenging and required you to have a much deeper understanding and that's why MNU practitioners are the best out there!
A very comprehensive course, great support from staff and other students, and very relative to anyone within the health/fitness/nutrition industry.
The course is very good at building the confidence of students.
The residential weekends were so useful and allowed me to get to know tutors and other students which provided great networking opportunities as well as making friends with like-minded people.
The real-life training provided sets the course apart from others, especially the ongoing support beyond course completion.
I have been able to use simple pieces of information with PT clients and gym members, which have made a huge difference in their progress.
MNU is the first online course I have done; the content was excellent and the detail of the course made it a great experience.
I've always been passionate about nutrition (mainly eating) and MNU has given me the confidence to use the knowledge I have learnt to start helping others.
I asked some local people to help me put my learning into practice, just with general weight loss methods, and I've had some amazing feedback. They are now free from years of fad diets and are so complimentary of the service I provided. This was all thanks to the MNU methods taught in Module 4.
I've also been approached by an MMA club at my gym to advise on nutrition and weight making. This is an absolute dream.
MNU has opened so many doors that I would never have considered being an option for me. MNU truly has been life-changing and now hopefully career-changing.
Mac-Nutrition Uni is by far the best course I have enrolled on.
The level of support from the team is outstanding.
I love how you could go and apply what you had learned to clients straight away. All of the information provided was practical. You always took something away from the lecture, even in the more basic lectures, there were still opportunities to learn.
MNU has literally changed my thoughts about nutrition and subsequently improved my social & mental health and the health of all of my clients.
I loved the core MNU lectures but also the guest lectures were a great offering of the course that I did not expect. Hearing from experts in their field made the content stick for me a lot more.
The student group was also great and helped a lot in terms of reading other's questions or having people answer your questions whenever you needed it.
I will miss the weekly lectures and feeling like a part of a community, however, I will stick around in the Mentoring Lab to geek out even more.
MNU has been the best course I have done, superior to my physio degree, acupuncture courses and women's health courses.
Everything was so relevant to clinical practice which made me motivated to study.
I really think completing MNU has changed my life. I have only gone back to working as a physio 1 day per week and last week I had the best month yet in my online business making £4.5K!
If it hadn't been for the push to put myself out there on social media and the knowledge gained through the course, none of this would have happened!
Thank you so much for changing my life, it sounds over the top but it really has! Before MNU I never thought I could make my online business work from home!
The MNU Tutors give thorough and quick responses to questions and queries.
The MNU Student group is a very good platform to encourage asking questions for each lecture.
Modules 3, 5, and 6 were my favourites and I particularly enjoyed the banter during lectures.
It was great to meet and connect with other MNU students and see such a variety of backgrounds.
I loved the Mac-Nutrition Live day in June, it was such an interesting talk and extremely well presented.
The course in its entirety has been great. As someone with a pre-existing interest in nutrition coming into the course, I definitely learned some new things from about every lecture in all the modules.
Compared to my university education, the MNU material and lectures are a lot more condensed and pragmatic.
This lives up to the goal of teaching things that are actually needed to practice well.
This experience has changed the way I view my capabilities as a presenter and nutrition professional.
This course is awesome and enrolling has been one of my best career decisions.
I feel a LOT more confident when it comes to my wisdom and integrity! (pun intended)
MNU was head and shoulders above other nutrition courses that I've done!
The student support was better than other courses (in that it existed!).
I've run multiple nutrition seminars at businesses and gyms and worked one-to-one with clients. I'm hoping that this is the springboard for further success.
Honestly, I'm really sad that MNU is over. I've absolutely loved learning more about nutrition and I'll really miss checking in for a new lecture every week. It's been a brilliant year!
I'm very pleased that I was recommended to study the Mac-Nutrition Uni course.
The course was incredibly thorough, well rounded and I feel I have gained a lot of confidence as a practitioner.
All of the extra lectures on business and multifaceted areas are fantastic additions.
It has shifted my practice and made it more uniform and concise.
I now have a better ability to direct conversation in a more educational manner.
I believe it's definitely helped me with adherence rates due to the confidence my clients have in the process.
I'm looking forward to building and maintaining new relationships within MNU.
MNU was a step above any other online course I've ever done.
I love that it covered a wide range of topics without compromising on depth and that the student support was so responsive.
What I loved most was how rigorous the exam was. I have always felt let down by other courses because the final exam was usually multiple choice.
The MNU exam reminded me of being back at uni.
I loved the modules on helping people with special conditions, particularly the Diabetes module which was a real eye opener.
The neutral, balanced way in which the information was presented led me to incorporate some animal products into my diet, which was the right decision for me.
The Mac-Nutrition Uni course has a fantastic structure that progresses at a good speed and helps with clarity of learning.
I absolutely loved the practical days on the Full with Honours course, getting to meet other people on my intake and some of the Mac Nutrition staff and tutors!
On top of that is the confidence it has given me to be a Nutritionist and be able to spread this knowledge to others around me, having a positive impact on people's lives.
The weight-loss strategies I learnt have boosted results with clients and I feel like I can now run better consultations, identifying low-hanging fruits to help them get the results they want in the best way that suits them.
MNU was my first fitness-related course and I have been blown away by the team's level of knowledge and how it's been converted into such easy-to-follow lectures and modules.
Having spent 12 years working in finance I was looking at a change of career.
I was excited to be a part of MNU but was concerned that it may have been too advanced for my novice level, however, the weekly structure of the lectures and how they're broken down into the different modules worked perfectly. The continued Student Group support from others on the course and the answers received from the MNU team were fantastic.
Being part of the Mentoring Lab and interacting with those already certified so I could learn from their experiences was invaluable.
A personal highlight of mine was the guest lectures; all content across the course was fantastic, but these felt above and beyond compared to what I'd expect from another nutrition course.
I have been able to leave a job and country that was damaging to my mental health to get back in a happier place and look with confidence to the future, rather than dread, Thanks to MNU.
Mac-Nutrition Uni is the best course I have done to date!
I’d say my personal highlight was the Case Studies residential, as I got to meet and talk to both students and tutors.
In terms of content, the module that stood out the most was the client-specific approaches, it opened my eyes to techniques I can use with clients to improve my results.
The theory and applicability of content on MNU is excellent. I have become so much more efficient in my practice, some transformations were taking me 3-4 months and now I use principles that I would previously be weary of using to get faster and more efficient results. My latest fat loss transformation took only 11 weeks!
MNU has completely changed the way I view things! I can’t thank you guys enough for how much I have developed as a coach. Best nutrition course I've done, hands down!
MNU is definitely going to support me in growing my business and providing a higher service to our current clients.
The course is so much better than other courses I have done. It's been a long time since I've studied and the course has renewed a new love of learning, even when studying for the exams!
The lecture on Nutritional Considerations for the Elderly gave me a better insight into how I can impact and help my clients a lot more as I train a lot of people who are over 55.
The MNU team are amazing. They are so responsive to emails and questions, no matter how random they are. The support was great, especially when Covid-19 happened and an extension was offered. Being able to extend my exams took a huge weight off :)
I'm so glad I chose to enrol on the Mac-Nutrition Uni course.
I've learned so much, not just about nutrition but also about my learning skills and style, research methods and challenging my own biases. I've made some wonderful friends along the way too!
As a career changer, the course has given me a comprehensive understanding of nutrition concepts and interventions, and the confidence to set up my own nutrition business.
The support provided is excellent, and far exceeds the support I received at university.
I also undertook the pre-requisite course ahead of applying to MNU, and it was brilliant, and excellent value for money.
If you can do the Full With Honours course I highly recommend it - the residentials really added a lot and were a great opportunity to get to know the team and fellow students.
The information we were given on MNU was always supported by evidence and has really developed my knowledge and skills as a coach.
I have a lot to practise but I feel far less nervous taking on my next few clients because I know I have all the information there to guide me.
The main highlights of MNU for me were learning and that somehow, even without ever meeting anyone, I cared for everyone on the course on a personal level.
I have done a few different nutrition courses over the years and MNU was by far the best.
I can't think of anything I would change about MNU.
Stephan du Toit
The standard of MNU is very high, the learning curve was steep but incredible.
I particularly found value in understanding energy balance and learning to discern between false claims, like 'starvation mode' and "eat more to lose weight".
My personal highlight was gaining a wider understanding of nutrition from disease management to bodybuilding.
I have had enquiries immediately when I posted that I was an MNU Certified Nutritionist.
My two friends and I were also invited to speak at FIBO in front of a full lecture section about nutrition. At present, two of us are qualified and the third is finishing his course early next year, so we had a good leap start! We are already considered to be amongst the top just because of our association with MNU.
MNU was different, in a good way!
The delivery of the lectures was outstanding & I loved how you could study at your own pace, with no deadlines.
I was amazed by the way we learned to put everything into practice, helping to excel my practice even further.
After the PCOS lecture, I gave advice to a couple of people at my gym and started working with these individuals. Results soon showed with weight loss and even regaining a normal menstrual cycle.
I thoroughly enjoyed this course, I knew it was going to be good, but I didn't expect it to be this good.
The course has been excellent throughout. The ability to jump into the Mentoring Lab for support and additional learning has been great. Communication is always crystal clear and delivered in a timely manner.
The importance put on developing critical thinking alongside learning has been refreshing compared to many other courses, where you only learn to repeat.
My personal highlight is gaining the confidence to be able to apply the knowledge and help people change their lives.
After MNU, I have now changed my career after 25 years in teaching to become a Nutritionist, what was a passionate hobby, is now the 'Why' I get up with a grin on my face every day!
Helping people achieve lifetime ambitions, have a good relationship with food, and understand how to eat well for life is unbelievable.
Mac-Nutrition Uni has been the best course I've ever done by far.
It's been directly applicable to working with clients, fun and engaging, with brilliant lecturers & MNU team support.
The residentials were definitely one of the highlights!
The sense of community within the intake was also fantastic.
I've had the best year of learning I've ever had and couldn't have loved the course more.
The MNU team are all an absolute dream and so incredible to learn from!
Wow, what a fantastic learning experience the past year has been. Goodbye imposter syndrome, hello new confident me.
I have done quite a few nutrition courses over the past 30+ years and can honestly say that MNU makes them pale into insignificance in its light of brilliance.
With previous courses, I have always been left feeling that I could have learned more, but this is definitely not the case with MNU.
MNU caters to every level. You can either just engage in the normal course content (which is excellently presented) or take the opportunity to “deep dive” into any specific areas that interest you - there is no pressure at all. The way that the course is set up and delivered is incredible, it flows brilliantly throughout and I genuinely looked forward to every lecture.
Any questions you have are answered promptly by the MNU team, or you can use the Mentoring Lab, which can only be described as outstanding.
The course has made me challenge my own biases as well as others in many aspects of my life - especially at work. Having the confidence to do this has made for a better workplace and, I believe, a better outcome for the patients we serve.
Mac-Nutrition Uni is by far the best course I have ever done and I honestly can’t speak highly enough about it. The whole course resounds with the MNU core principles of Wisdom, Confidence and Integrity.
In all honesty, MNU has blown previous courses I've done out of the water. It just went to another level with the support for students.
The course has enriched my learning experience and got me excited about nutrition again after feeling like it was an area of my skill set I was really lacking in. My coaching skills, knowledge and critical thinking have vastly improved.
I've only just finished and the results I've been able to help people with are so much greater and I am having more impact than ever before, from supporting women with PCOS to performance nutrition for ultra marathons! MNU has honestly changed my life.
Module 4 was particularly useful in developing my coaching skills and I felt it had an immediate impact on my business. Just being back to studying was an absolute blast and the organisation of the course worked really well with how I like to learn.
I loved the LIVE check in videos at the end of each module. It was great to see people interacting, getting reminders on doing the core skills, receiving reassurance & listening to guidance.
I really enjoyed the case study work we did throughout too, it really helped in bringing the whole course to life and learning how to apply the skills and knowledge I learnt into real life situations.
Thank you for what has been an incredible year of learning. It has helped me through the pandemic, periods of lockdown and I've come out the other side of the course feeling so much more able, skilled and confident in my abilities as a nutrition coach.
MNU truly blew my expectations out of the water and I'm really going to miss the weekly studying. It feels like the start of something really special in my career and I've got MNU to thank for that.
MNU is BY FAR the best educational experience I've had to date. It was refreshing, unbiased, and gave me the tools to take on this industry in an ethical way.
The content on MNU was brilliant, well presented and really well structured. I found the course to be very well organised and was the perfect workload to undertake whilst still running my business.
My personal highlight was the exams, they bought the best out of the content and the case studies made me connect the dots between theoretical understanding and application.
I also loved the business support, such as Danny Lennon's guest presentation showing his tracking templates and business knowledge.
I have clients queued and ready for my nutrition services which is a huge plus!
Thank you for creating a friendly atmosphere for us to learn!
Mac-Nutrition Uni has been one of the best investments I have made in a very long time.
I have an undergrad degree and have completed a number of other certifications and MNU has given me more in terms of everyday and practical information than all them.
The Student groups and access to the Mentoring Lab is a great touch as it is something that I found very useful. There is no doubt a lot of thought and effort has gone into the course structure and delivery from all of the MNU team.
The straightforward approach to nutrition was a highlight for me.
Mac-Nutrition Uni gives you the necessary practical tools and information to help many people achieve their nutrition and lifestyle goals.
Thank you so much for all that you have done for the nutrition industry. The MNU slogan of Wisdom, Confidence and Integrity is perfect as it sums up what I and everyone else has learnt on the course.
I hope one day I am able to make a difference in the lives of others the same way that everyone at MNU does. - IG marknichols_nl
Martin and the team are fantastic at actually making you want to learn.
I looked forward to the lectures each week and that is coming from someone who has never enjoyed studying.
Now I have completed MNU no other PT in the gym I work in can compete with me, which gives me more confidence to help my clients.
Honestly, MNU has completely changed the way I train each client, they now get a truly bespoke approach.
MNU is the best course I've ever done by far I have an HND in Sport & Exercise Science and have also done other online nutrition courses.
I recommend the course to every PT I know!
Mac-Nutrition Uni is absolutely amazing!
It has an excellent course structure and really builds & layers on the knowledge as you progress throughout the course.
It's really nice to have an interactive Student Support Facebook group, where you are able to ask questions and have them answered by the course lecturers.
Getting towards the end of the course & then revisiting lectures from the beginning left me feeling as though I could put the pieces together in my understanding, which was a highlight for me!
Doing MNU has definitely changed things in my life - it hasn't just given me the ability to help others, it has changed the way I view nutrition and food.
It has made me realise that I struggled with nutrition and has given me the knowledge to overcome those struggles.
Attending the residentials was definitely a highlight for me - I'm really glad I decided to go for the Full with Honours course option.
Other courses that I've done don't compare to MNU at all, they had no student support and were full of things that I now know to be untrue. If I had finished the other courses, I don't think I would have been ready to coach someone at all, unlike MNU.
MNU has opened up new clientele and new opportunities for me to help people in different ways whilst getting my clients quicker results.
It has also expanded my client base as I now can offer Nutrition consultations as well as PT. I completed my personal training course fully online also and I have to say there is no comparison when it comes to support!
Staff and tutors at MNU are quick to respond and the Facebook student page is amazing. Knowing you are able to get answers quickly is so comforting. Doing my PT course sometimes I would wait weeks for a response, which at times left me lost with the feeling I couldn’t continue to learn until I found my answers, but it was completely different with MNU!
I just want to say a MASSIVE thank you to the MNU team! You guys are a credit to society, helping us to help so many others! I feel totally empowered and excited for a new journey as an evidence-based practitioner.
MNU had been something I'd wanted to do for a while but never had the confidence in my abilities to go for it. Once I decided to just do it, I knew it was the right decision.
The support given by all of the MNU tutors has been over and above anything I received at University.
I just want to say thank you to all at MNU for creating such a great course!
It has been the best decision I've made and I've finally found something I'm passionate about.
You've created something really special with MNU...I'm just pleased I've had the chance to be a part of it :)
I'm not a bookworm or find studying easy so the format of MNU really helped. There was always someone there to help you, the guest speakers were extremely helpful and the quizzes and revisions were easy to follow.
MNU blew other courses I had done out of the park!
I was able to use the information I got from the lectures, and the new information I found in the Mentoring Lab, to help my sister improve her IBS symptoms, eat more and feel better.
The highlight was the no-nonsense approach, no misleads or failed promises, just honesty and integrity.
There is no comparison to Mac-Nutrition Uni. It is streets ahead.
The course helps a person grow with confidence in all areas, not just knowledge.
MNU provides an amazing amount of information that not only educates but changes perceptions and shows someone how to critically evaluate information in an unbiased way.
The support and professionalism from the entire MNU team is unbelievable; you are made to feel like an individual and not just a number or just another student. That is very rare.
I thought I would only be able to support clients once my year [of studying] had finished, so I am unbelievably pleased to have the confidence to take on clients much sooner.
From having absolutely no knowledge in this area at all, I am now helping people to become healthier and happier and achieving goals way past their expectations.
This is all being done through the knowledge gained from MNU.
The course is thorough and really gives a lot of nuance to topics which makes them more applicable.
In other courses I have done you are told things but not given their applicability. With MNU, I really feel the "why" was well provided and explained.
Learning a variety of tools and methods that can be used was a highlight for me.
Before the course I was afraid to try anything because it may not be "right" however from doing the course, I now know that no method is perfect and context is key.
I lost 10kg myself using what I had learnt and my sports performance improved as a result.
MNU was brilliant, best course I've done by far. Extremely professional and well organised, it was a 10 out of 10 course.
There was great support in the Student group and so helpful to have the Mentoring Lab too.
The lectures were well presented and the slides were very helpful to print out and write on each week.
I really enjoyed Module 4 and learning how to improve soft skills along with an evidence-based approach.
Modules 2, 3 and 5 were very enjoyable and interesting too. I think it is an exceptional course, I'm so glad I did it.
Martin's and Sarah's lectures were my favourite, the humour and anecdotes made it more interesting and enjoyable to follow.
Mac-Nutrition Uni is one of the best courses I've done. I am a changed person for having done MNU and I am very appreciative of the opportunity it provided.
I have made great friends, found a tribe of intelligent and caring professionals, and learnt a tremendous amount.
Prior to starting MNU, I went through two other nutrition courses, but I thought that the nutrition side of them was a little weak and I didn't believe that every client would want to have a slowly-slowly, habit-creating approach.
Having liked Martin's previous content, I signed up for MNU and from the first module, I felt my brain expanding! I have learned so much over the past year and more importantly, re-learned how to think critically.
The quality of the lectures is fantastic - engaging, humorous and thoughtful.
The content of the lectures is second-to-none!
I particularly enjoyed the guest lectures, especially regarding eating disorders and obesity.
The support is excellent & the Student group and Mentoring Lab have incredible resources.
MNU has given me the confidence to step back into the world of nutrition and help others.
I now feel more confident about my approach and the level of integrity that I instil in my service.
From the amazing content to the support and knowledge of the team at MNU I can’t speak highly enough of the course and MNU in general.
The residentials were amazing; being fully immersed in the course and meeting the MNU team and my fellow students really helped refocus me during the course.
I have also met some of the most amazing people this industry has to offer.
In terms of a client success story that I would like to share, I have a client with Binge Eating Disorder and through MNU I was able to recognise it, refer her for counselling and continue to support her while safe in the knowledge I wasn’t doing any harm.
Had it not been for MNU I would have thought the traditional methods of managing her diet for weight loss would apply. She is doing well and I feel lucky that she’s not with a nutritionist that doesn’t recognise these issues.
MNU gave me so much confidence straight away!
I was able to apply what I had learnt with my clients which improved the standard of coaching and delivery. It also helped me achieve better results.
Everything taught was beneficial, even in the areas I'm not so interested in pursuing - I found the anecdotes super helpful as I could relate them to a real-life situation. I am now not so afraid of maths!
Having the confidence to take on a clinically obese client was all down to MNU.
This client lost 50 pounds and went from a BMR in the clinically obese category, to the obese category, for the first time in 10 years!
In her words, "This is the easiest plan I've ever been on and having a complete understanding of what I'm doing (and why) has completely changed my life"
I have done two degrees, six years at University & until I started MNU, I never knew how to read articles critically.
The content and support were amazing & the MN LIVE Days were incredible!
The community side of the course was great. I finally managed to step out of my comfort zone and start posting my knowledge on Instagram & I feel the support I got from MNU and the Mentoring Lab is a massive part of this.
I have learnt an insane amount and I can't wait to put it into practice with clients.
I would recommend the course to anyone!
MNU is the best course I have done.
Compared to the nutrition degree I'm studying, it's better delivered, far more relevant and enjoyable!
I'm more confident in my delivery of nutrition to clients, more inspired to work in a more nutrition specific capacity and I'm now doing more corporate nutrition work.
The results I'm getting are better than ever, but also I feel more comfortable in that the information and advice I provide.
In just over a month I had 3 clients go from pre-diabetic diagnosis to 'normal' again. The body composition results are critical to the business, but results like that reaffirm the importance of what I do as both a personal trainer and nutritionist from a health perspective too, MNU is excellent!
The level of support on MNU was unreal.
I had some seriously tough moments last year and MNU listened and supported me.
The course not only teaches you the science but also provides applicable information to become an effective practitioner.
The vast quantity of information was broken into easily digestible chunks. It was great to be able to apply the knowledge in my day-to-day work and opened my mind to multiple approaches to help an individual.
Overall, I absolutely loved the course and will be forever thankful that I had the chance to complete it.
Compared to my Level 3 PT course, MNU is infinitely better!
The friendly, practical approach was most welcome, rather than going to in depth on things we probably don't really need to know.
It's been great! Informative, educational, and more importantly practical advice that can be used with clients straight away.
I now have the confidence to know that I can help clients by re-educating them.
I’m proud to be on the first intake of what will likely be the go to nutrition course in years to come.
MNU stands way above any other courses that I have done and I am honoured to have been a part of the initial intake.
The standard of teaching on the lectures was beyond my expectations and I am now a better coach because of MNU.
The level of support is second to none, Martin and his team go above and beyond to answer any questions, even when i wasn't expecting to receive an answer.
The 12 months, including the exams have been a great learning experience for me and I will be forever grateful to Martin and his team for the knowledge and confidence that I have gained.
I am immensely proud of carrying the MNU Certified Nutritionist badge and I can honestly say that it is my greatest achievement.
I loved how simple MNU made everything, in particular the maths equations. Maths has always been really tricky for me so I appreciated that it wasn't glossed over or assumed that everyone could already do it.
MNU has absolutely changed the way I run my business, the level of support and applicability to my career has been second to none, without MNU I'd still be a struggling online coach unable to pay my bills!
I launched my business during lockdown, with the help of MNU in regards to nutrition education AND business education I now have full books and some amazing client transformations.
I have spent thousands of pounds on business mentors but nothing compares to what I learnt in regards to business in MNU so thank you, the team at MNU has literally changed my life.
MNU has been a life-changing course for me. It has changed the way I program for myself and my clients, as well as the way I run my business in regard to the consultation process.
The Student group felt like a community and if I ever had a question, I was fully supported by my peers as well as the MNU team.
Personally, my highlight is actually achieving results with my clients. Before enrolling, I never really had any good before and after results but now, thanks to MNU, I have an extensive library of them!
Honestly, there is nothing that I would change about the MNU, I think it is all very well run and I had a fantastic experience. I cannot wait to educate my future clients with all the evidence-based concepts I learnt during this course.
I loved the course all the way through and appreciate the fact that the tutors got back to me within 24 hrs, with a very high level of support.
The material was excellent and I love the course structure. I especially liked module 4 which taught me a lot about client psychology and behaviour change.
MNU helped me realize that to be a nutritionist you don't necessarily have to geek out with the tiniest details and it is important to take a step back and look at the bigger picture, which is the client as a human being.
The learning environment in the Mentoring Lab allowed me to share both, academic and personal concerns and has supported me many times when I was stressed.
The level of student support on MNU was incredible, the presentation of the course was exceptional, the content was extremely high quality, but it also felt personal too.
The information was made relevant to our day-to-day practice and the way in which we were equipped with the skills relevant to be the best practitioners we can be, was brilliant.
All of my clients have achieved really good results since I have been implementing all that I have learnt on MNU, as I now feel 100% confident in the methods that I use and have many more to draw on.
They probably now receive a better level of education as I am better at and more confident in the way that I explain nutritional concepts to them.
From start to finish this was an amazing course. Being made to feel confident in working in this field, being able to share and expand my passion for all things nutrition and having regular contact with the brilliant MNU team and my peers. It has been absolutely brilliant!
MNU felt more akin to a real university course than other online certifications I've done. I appreciated all of the additional resources provided, like the Student group and Mentoring Lab.
I really enjoyed the lectures on the elderly, PCOS, and eating disorders. I also wasn't anticipating that I would enjoy the hydration lecture as much as I did! Practically perfect in every way!
It has been an unbelievably difficult year for many, myself included. I truly appreciate MNU taking away some of the stress by offering to suspend payments, this was a wonderful gift during such uncertain times, so thank you.
On a more solemn note, being a part of MNU was my saving grace. I lost someone very close to me in July and honestly struggled to find joy in much of anything. I found solace in laughing along during lectures and Live days, and in being a part of something. It may sound silly but MNU gave me a sense of purpose when my grief felt overwhelming, it gave me hope.
I am very grateful for the MNU team and all of the work that they do. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as a student and while I am sad to see this chapter end, I can’t wait to be officially certified and start a new beginning.
MNU was an experience that went beyond the quality of the content that was provided.
There is no comparison between MNU and any other nutrition course!
I can honestly say that I learnt from the best, grew my confidence, skills and applied these gains to my practice, which created better results for my clients.
The MNU process was smooth, exciting, entertaining and highly effective.
The encouragement from Martin, the staff and the other students meant a lot, especially since I am on the other side of the world, and also juggling family, work, etc whilst doing MNU.
I changed my consultation process because of what I have learnt from MNU. It has helped me give my clients a smooth impactful experience, creating great results from the start.
I have learnt and grown so much over the past year because of you Martin, and your staff.
Mac-Nutrition Uni isn't in the same category as any other nutrition course I have completed. Every other course has left me scratching my head a little. They don't prepare you half as much as MNU does!
In 2019 I thought just do it, what are you waiting for? Best decision ever!
The level of information, knowledge and practitioner skills taught in MNU are second to none.
I decided to pass on the knowledge to my staff in the gym at the end of each lecture, so made my own short presentations at our team meetings with them. We all found it extremely beneficial.
MNU is priceless - it sets you up with the skills and mindset to go out into the field with confidence.
Plus, along with my own research, membership to The Mentoring Lab is all the CPD I require going forward.
MNU was certainly more thorough than other nutrition certifications I have done. The course structure allows you to build a foundation and then go more in-depth on a broad range of topics.
I really enjoyed modules 5 & 6. Learning about working with athletes and special populations was both interesting and practical and helped me to solidify how to use what I had learnt earlier in the course.
As a career changer, Mac-Nutrition Uni provided me with a foundation that allows for significantly more confidence in my knowledge and how to apply it.
I really appreciate that the team at MNU is truly invested in the students being able to confidently provide clients with the best evidence-based recommendations.
I started with my first nutrition client before even graduating and am now working with a remote coaching company that highly values MNU!
This was my first qualification since becoming a PT, I have attended CPD's but this was very different, 12 months of lectures and intense learning. I have learnt so much that has already made a difference to my business.
The level of support was good and whenever I had a query, somebody always got straight back to me.
I feel very informed and it's given me a great platform to continue. I now have a real zest for nutrition and I've loved it, I particularly liked Module 5.
The course was immense and I have no regrets whatsoever, it was worth all investments.
Since MNU, I have been working with a weight-loss client and from her check-ins, I could detect that there were some issues going on. I sent her to her GP for Iron/ferritin, Thyroid and Vit D tests and they all came back below the norm. This was a real moment for me.
Honestly, the slow accumulation of knowledge was perfectly executed on MNU.
I have left MNU with more knowledge than I thought possible in 13 months but also with the confidence to do this well as my career.
The PCOS lecture was my absolute favourite as one of my good friends has it. Since the lecture and studying through the supplementary lecture, I’ve helped her lose 7lbs which she never thought possible.
The prenatal lecture helped me realise my true passion is helping women of childbearing age conceive.
The confidence MNU has given me is definitely to be credited! I appreciate all the support and knowledge I received through the year, not only about nutrition but giving me the knowledge about starting a business.
The quality of the material, the on-point education and instruction, and the obvious high standards you have set for the students make MNU something special.
I am aged 47 and have studied for what feels like most of my life but I can honestly say that MNU is the best course I've ever taken.
Modules 3 and 4 were highlights for me and throughout the course, there were too many belly laughs to count, my kind of learning environment for sure.
I took on my first clients 2 months ago and they are all losing weight consistently. I've no doubt the confidence that I've gained through MNU is rubbing off on them.
MNU has totally restructured the way I think about nutrition.
I am now able to confidently help clients achieve better results in weight loss, muscle gain, endurance, and also clinical populations too.
I have built a reputation for being good at what I do and love - The MNU way!
After doing MNU, I now understand why it is named the best nutrition course on this planet.
I would recommend MNU to anyone, not only personal trainers but anyone who has an interest in nutrition, for their own benefit, or for helping others too.
Mac-Nutrition Uni sets itself apart from other courses I have done.
The engagement throughout the course, the Student Group and weekly check-ins helped me stick to the course and not panic or feel overwhelmed at any point. I also felt it was easy to get in touch with the MNU Team directly with any queries or issues.
In terms of applicability to my business, it's honestly one of the first courses I have completed and felt I know exactly where to start and how to confidently work with various clients to apply the knowledge I have gained.
I loved learning about supplements and especially all the information about Vitamin D. I also enjoyed the live lectures on fat loss and muscle gain.
One of my favourite things about the course though was that every lecture was kept interesting by going off on tangents and throwing in some new insights.
I just want to thank everyone involved at MNU for creating this course and making it so enjoyable. From start to finish, it has been brilliant.
Doing MNU was one of the best decisions I've made!
It has not only given me confidence going forward but also my mindset in terms of nutrition and working with clients.
The support was great, the course was well set out, great delivery of content and there was a real sense of community.
MNU was on another level compared to any other course I've done.
It's been an honour and I'm looking forward to continuing my learning and growth through the Mentoring Lab and future events.
Nothing I have done in the past compares to MNU, not even my degree in nutrition.
MNU has been nothing short of amazing. The content, structure, staff support, and continuous knowledge bombs, made it the most enjoyable learning experience possible.
MNU is more than just a course, it is a family. It has set me up to confidently build a business doing something that I love and that I am passionate about.
A personal highlight for me, was when a couple of members of the course were running into hardships, financially and personally, and the whole team rallied around to support them. That was an amazing insight into how I was part of something special.
I would change… absolutely nothing. I would just like to thank every MNU staff member for their help throughout the whole course for giving me the opportunity to use something I love to give my family and myself a chance at a better future.
MNU is immense all-around. The support was very responsive, and the course content itself was better than I had expected.
I am 100% sure that MNU will greatly benefit my career, as not only have I gained more knowledge, but I also feel more confident when talking about nutrition topics.
Some highlights were learning some of the motivational interviewing techniques and practically how to coach, as opposed to just tell clients what to do.
The advanced topics like eating disorders and PCOS were immense and expanded my knowledge way beyond general nutrition. I loved it all!
If you're looking to advance your career in nutrition, MNU is the course you should be looking to complete.
The time and effort put in to provide course materials, support, guest lectures and residentials is outstanding. The course is a real pleasure to study.
I've gone from having absolutely no knowledge or confidence in nutrition and working with clients to now feeling capable to work with individuals and support them fully.
Without you guys at MNU and the course, that wouldn't have been possible!
The quality of content and how MNU was delivered was excellent.
The support was fantastic from start to finish and I felt confident that I would be given the utmost care from the team.
I really enjoyed learning from the best and being part of a very wonderful community.
I'm delighted to have made the decision to do MNU. I have a client that, after many years of feeling helpless and confused with PCOS, is now losing weight.
I know MNU will benefit my business and the results of my clients better than ever.
MNU has been outstanding.
The best highlight for me was the people who I have come to know and can now call friends. The community has been outstanding and so supportive.
The course was structured so well with Modules 1-3 underpinning the Nutritional Gold that followed in Modules 4-6.
To do this course at 55 was a serious challenge but I have thoroughly enjoyed it.
I identified that there was a number of students on our course from Melbourne and quickly put together a "support group" which chats away daily in the background. This group has given me amazing motivation and kept me focused on them and MNU.
I am so proud to have completed MNU and to have been part of this journey... and most of all, the MNU Community.
The level of student support and quality of learning environment on MNU was a million percent better than my degree.
MNU completely surpassed my expectations! I had everything I needed to fully learn what I actually needed to. The lectures were easy-to-watch and understand with a great mass of supporting literature and so much support & access to tutors and industry professionals within the Mentoring Lab.
I came away with such confidence and felt fully prepared to help people with their nutrition and achieve success with their goals.
As soon as I finished my exams I started working with 5 people. Everyone is losing weight and making great progress - I'm so proud of them!
Thank you so much to MNU for igniting my nutrition passion. I am super excited to pass on my nutrition knowledge to as many people as I can.
Before I started, I never thought the level of MNU would be as high as it was.
The structure of the course, the support you get, the knowledge... This isn't just another online course, it's so much more! You grow as a practitioner and as a person.
I always lacked the confidence to interact with clients whenever they had questions or were struggling with results, but MNU has given me the necessary tools to feel confident and produce results no matter what.
MNU equals knowledge and success!
My highlights were the lectures on Nutrition for Team Sports and Bodybuilding, the lectures on IBS, Diabetes and PCOS, the lectures on vitamins and minerals, the nutritional myths as well. Basically all of them!
The sequence in which MNU has been put together made the ability to build information seamless.
I loved Module 5 as it provided a lot of new information for me in terms of special populations. It has brought awareness to important conditions, such as eating disorders, Type 2 diabetes and nutrition for the elderly.
This will not only be hugely beneficial in my career as a practitioner, but also easily applicable to real-life scenarios.
Mac-Nutrition Uni was the first online training course I have ever done and I feel it will be a tough act to follow for any future further education.
I researched around for the best nutrition course possible and MNU did not disappoint! I enjoyed every single aspect of the course.
I feel I can now provide a quality service for my clients because I received quality teaching from MNU.
MNU produces real professionals, people that are able to deal with all kinds of situations and personality types.
The course was very refreshing, especially because in my country most of the people that work in this area are so far from what nutrition really is.
The quality of the information I received was amazing, so many studies to read from and so many resources in the Mentoring Lab, not to mention the possibility to ask fellow students questions in the Student groups.
I look forward to learning more from all the amazing MNU tutors. All my appreciation to Martin and the MNU team, they’re such great human beings!
Mac-Nutrition Uni has surpassed other courses I have completed in the past by a mile. The level of student support was amazing, the course content was high quality and it was put in terms that were easy to understand, the delivery was even better than my University course.
The course was extremely well planned and scheduled. The support was always there and I was aware I could ask for an extension if required.
I loved every second of the course and it really made me feel so special to be part of the MNU family.
My personal highlight was completing the course, it has been a major highlight of my life, I feel I have grown so much as a person mentally.
This course has allowed me to feel more confident in myself to deliver knowledge that is evidence-based and has also shown me ways to deliver and educate clients without second-guessing myself. I am very excited to begin my career in the field of nutrition under the MNU banner.
I will be passing all of this onto my children as well, I am so proud to be able to empower them.
A MAJOR highlight for me was the friendships that I have been able to form. Even though this is all online, I have found the most amazing like-minded friends across the globe and we all have MNU and the MNU ethos and values to thank for that. The cohort I was part of was nothing but friendly, supportive and encouraging, this is a reflection of Martin and all of the MNU team.
I feel part of the BIG family that is MNU and the knowledge I have gained has really changed and impacted my life on so many levels. I have been able to complete a 12-month course online with a brand new baby, 2 other children, a business, a hubby and a house to run!
MNU has shown me that I can achieve anything as long as I am committed!
I am a Primary School Teacher but have also completed two other nutrition courses. Of all of the courses I have done, including my teaching degree, MNU was by far the best course in terms of content and practicability.
The content was very in depth but presented in a really useful and relatable way and I really feel equipped with the tools I need to work as a Nutritionist now which wasn't the case before this course.
I really enjoyed the speciality lectures such as Diabetes, PCOS, Endurance athletes etc. I feel that giving these their own lectures and focus is a great idea as they are often brushed over in a slide or two which doesn't give enough attention to them when they are as common as they are.
In the school I work in we do CPD presentations, I decided to do a nutrition presentation instead which went really well!
The MNU team has created an amazing course which I have been telling anyone who will listen about!
The MNU staff have created a really supportive network and community which I will definitely use to my advantage in the future! Thanks MNU!
MNU is by far the most interactive course.
The extra tips on business, PowerPoint setups, and other infographic materials have been extremely helpful.
I have a PCOS client who reached out when she saw that I was doing MNU.
After the MNU PCOS lecture, we have changed her approach and she is starting to see progress.
I wouldn't have known what to do if it wasn't for the lecture.
Mac-Nutrition Uni was great! I would recommend it to ANYBODY no matter what level of knowledge they are starting at.
I have an extensive background in this area already, but the added reading and extra resources provided were invaluable for me!
I have greatly improved my ability to decipher research and find what I am looking for when it comes to more complex topics.
I also learned a TON from the coaching parts of the course, including Module 6 when it comes to putting everything together to work with athletes.
I received so much support on MNU and always felt like I had someone to turn to for help had I ever a need to.
The lectures were always engaging and the content always practical, useful and insightful.
My favourite part was definitely the residential weekends, it was really reassuring to meet the team and other fellow students!
It's very clear that the MNU team really care for their students and genuinely want the best for everyone. It's also very reassuring to know how much you want MNU to deliver the best course possible.
The confidence MNU has in its course helps to instil confidence in its graduates.
MNU was fantastic! The content was great, the detail and applicability of the information was second to none.
The lecturers were so knowledgeable and really helped to make the content interesting, fun and understandable.
I really enjoyed the performance and team sports lecture which is an area I really didn't think I had much interest in working in. Now with the extra knowledge and confidence, I look forward to exploring these and many other areas of nutrition.
Since MNU, I have been able to help a client with PCOS and she now feels she has a really good understanding of the reasons why she has struggled in the past. She is 12kg down and it's really nice to know that I have been able to help her after 30 years of fighting.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the year, I am already feeling a little lost and will miss the lectures and Martins jokes & him flexing on stage :-) Thank you for everything. Epic course, I would recommend without a shadow of a doubt.
The course content, assignments and quizzes were strategically planned, ensuring skills and practice beyond the actual theory.
The only nutrition course I did prior to MNU was a performance nutrition course, MNU was way more comprehensive and precisely what I had signed up for.
Student support was always timely and invaluable. The Mentoring Lab is a priceless resource both throughout the course and moving forward. Even though I am a career changer, after MNU I’m confident that my knowledge is now way above even more experienced practitioners out there.
My definition of health has been forever changed, making me want to help as many people as possible with the knowledge I have learnt. Sarah is a PHENOMENAL educator.
I started MNU with a severe eating disorder that I didn’t even know I had due to years and years of restriction and a very myopic understanding of health in general. This is no longer the case after all I have learnt! There’s absolutely nothing I would change. This course is more than I had signed up for.
MNU truly is a life-changing course.
Doing this course has massively increased my knowledge and confidence in nutrition, which has been well noted and I have had many people approach me for advice.
I have done a couple of nutrition courses previously, and MNU was much more in-depth. There is a very structured learning platform with a high level of support and a good community.
I really enjoyed Module 5 and 6 and learning about clinical conditions and specific areas of nutrition for athletes.
I have a Masters degree in pharmacy and I didn't receive the level of support and guidance in 5 years of university education that I did during MNU.
I have had a passion for nutrition for years but have never managed to find a group of like-minded people, until now! I love that feeling of community.
I loved how the course built on itself. I wouldn't change a thing about it.
Without realising it, MNU has made me the best pharmacist in my area.
I always considered myself better than most in this area for advice but now my patients are getting world-class advice for free in store. People are talking about me locally as that pharmacist who is brilliant with supplement and dietary advice.
This has actually been great practice for me to use all my knowledge with no pressure before starting my business, my confidence has grown massively.
I did MNU and thrived in it later in my career, with babies, homeschooling, lockdown and work. MNU has made me stand taller, smile brighter and generally be the best and happiest version of myself.
There is no other course that actually cares about your abilities as a practitioner in the way that MNU does.
It is not just a nutrition course. It is not just a tick-the-box qualification. It is an investment, in not only your business and education but in your perspective of other people.
After the course, I felt I had improved my ability to help people on a deeper level than just what they eat and drink as well as my ability to appropriately empathise.
I found the Live lectures at the end of modules really fun and interactive.
I had a "win" moment when I had to discuss a topic with a doctor of public health, who was speaking about the importance of eating “little and often” to every population. My ability to approach the discussion professionally and politely came from MNU! I told her why this was not an aspect of dieting that should be given much air time to a client and why this was the case.
I simply cannot thank you all enough for how much you changed my life over the course of the past 14 months. I have gained so much confidence in my knowledge and in my ability to coach effectively.
You have no idea how high I jumped off the floor with excitement when I got my place on MNU! From that day on, my life has changed for the better every single day.
I think it sums it all up to say, I have never ever been disappointed that a course has come to an end until Mac-Nutrition Uni. Thank you so much, I can’t wait to see what I can do now.
Mac-Nutrition Uni was second to none.
The content was so applicable to the clients I work with and my knowledge has increased so much.
The MNU staff are always on hand to help as well as everyone else in the Mentoring Lab. The Special Considerations for Clinical Populations Module helped me so much and confirmed a lot that I was still unsure of.
MNU has not only helped me with specific clients but also helped me tutor my team of PTs, meaning even more people are getting an improved service from our PTs.
MNU has been superior to other courses in every form, especially in regards to the course structure. The layout and the course timings helped to keep me on track and made things flow perfectly.
My highlight of MNU was a video I submitted towards the very start of the course. The feedback I received from the team and the other students was immense and gave me such a confidence boost. Talking on social media used to be a fear of mine but the core skills video, coupled with all that we learnt on the course, means that I now use social media as a tool to give out knowledge.
Since MNU I now know my own value as a coach.
Now I feel proud to move forward to demonstrate the further knowledge and confidence that MNU has given me and put it into action to go further and learn more about areas of nutrition that interest and benefit me.
MNU have taken an individual that hates online learning and made them enjoy it. I am a more confident, more knowledgeable and a proud individual right now and a great deal of that has stemmed from MNU.
The quality of content provided at MNU is beyond any other course I have completed.
I have learnt so much over the year which has given me the confidence to become a practitioner once I qualify.
The level of support from the MNU team is on another level, along with the number of resources and facilities provided to continue learning and interacting with other MNU students.
A highlight of mine was the overall knowledge that I have gained from the lectures. The guest lectures were also an incredible addition to the course.
It was honestly one of the best decisions I have made. Over the year I have gained an unbelievable amount of knowledge which I don’t believe would’ve been possible without signing up to MNU.
The set-up of MNU kept me accountable for my studies in a non-pressurised and flexible way.
The homework was invaluable in cementing my learning and the model answers were really helpful. The set-up is extremely professional and the residentials were well run and well supported by the MNU team.
The highlight for me was learning something new completely separate from my current career.
I'm so happy that I was brave enough to sign up for MNU in the first place - it was a big step for me.
After 33 years in banking, I am about to make a career change!
MNU is a must-have professional qualification for everyone who wants to work with people and should become a compulsory certification for all nutrition practitioners.
Whether you are a PT or BSc/MSc/PhD in Nutrition or a Dietitian or a GP, you will get a broader understanding of practical implications which is critical for anyone who wants to help people with health, performance, weight loss or gain etc.
MNU has given me a new perspective on some aspects of nutrition, filled in gaps in my theoretical knowledge and set a higher standard for my service provision.
MNU provides much more intellectual and evidence-based content compared to other courses and is well in line with my view of nutritional science and practice.
Having a PhD in a different discipline, I still can apply my research background and ability to see the bigger picture and draw conclusions about the nutrition field and ... to sum up, I think the course is great! :)
I can't even compare MNU to other nutrition courses I have taken...it is in a league of its own!
I loved the structure of the weekly lectures and quizzes, the interaction and support provided by the student group and the delivery of the information.
Even though it was an online course it felt as though you were actually attending live lectures and were made to feel part of the "MNU Family".
With Martin's anecdotes, tangents and memes I found myself literally laughing out loud! This was especially welcome during the months of lockdown.
I anxiously awaited the PCOS lecture and it did not disappoint! I was really looking forward to finally being able to have evidence-based information on PCOS as well as practical things I could apply to my daily life. I cannot express how much more confidence MNU has given me on this subject, let alone how much better I feel too!
The level of support on MNU was comparable to that of a university degree and I couldn't fault it.
The online learning portal and learning resources are great, plus the support provided by email, student groups and other social media was massively appreciated.
Throughout MNU I have been able to apply what I have learnt time and time again in my line of work as a Personal Trainer.
MNU has given me the confidence to help a wider variety of clients (muscle gain, diabetes, PCOS, team sports) in relation to their nutrition instead of just weight loss and has made me a much better coach as a result.
Mac Nutrition Uni was everything I'd ever hoped it would be.
The amount of knowledge I've gained from MNU has been mind-blowing. It teaches you real-life applications, business skills and confidence, and the level of support was second-to-none.
I loved how I could always take away incredible information from every lecture and it could be applied to life itself. I can't think of anything I would change about MNU, it's brilliant. It has changed my whole mindset about how I view food, life and health.
MNU has boosted my confidence in myself and my career choice. Thanks to MNU I see life in a better way and I know about all the different routes to helping clients and this makes my heart smile as I love helping people.
I am also very grateful to Martin for all of his help and for giving me time to sort myself out to be able to resume paying the monthly installments again, every time I think about it I tear up a little.
I've been through so much this year and yet MNU gave me a break and a chance. I will forever be grateful and thankful to you guys! Because of MNU, my life has a purpose.
MNU has undoubtedly been the most professionally run course I have ever had the pleasure of doing.
I will never forget how it felt to be greeted by name at the residential because the MNU team had spent time learning names and faces.
All I can say is I am happier, more confident and more content than I have ever been in my life.
MNU provided the big picture and each piece of the course is crucial.
The knowledge, the understanding, the wisdom, the practice and the ethos are essential to being an MNU Certified Nutritionist.
A career highlight for me was delivering a nutrition workshop to over 300 students, parents and staff at my school.
Mac-Nutrition Uni has been everything that I had hoped for and so much more. Even though it is an 'online course' I genuinely feel part of a community. The level of support was amazing throughout.
MNU has provided me with more confidence and knowledge to grow my business and provide better service and results for my clients.
I loved the fact that the advice given was practical and actually applicable to my client base and business.
My personal highlight was how friendly and accommodating the MNU Team was throughout. The bonus of completing the Full with Honours was we were able to meet the team. You guys are great!
There have been quite a few success stories from my client base. One that stands out was a young female whose weight was always fluctuating, because of MNU I was able to educate her and build a sustainable approach to her weight loss journey.
She is now 2 stone lighter, happier, healthier and more importantly feels completely in control. I had a testimonial from her saying that I had "changed her life".
Thank you MNU. Amazing course, amazing people, amazing triceps ;)
MNU is absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend it. Student support is there if you needed it through Facebook or email.
I am a PT and the relevance of the course to what I do and the pitching of it is perfect.
From how the information is built on module to module, to how it should be applied in Modules 4 and 5.
On a personal level, it has helped me to start putting myself my information and my voice out in public.
Taking the course has been one of the best decisions of my life.
I feel as though the best thing about MNU is that it's challenging; it's engaging. You can't just pay to play so you can say you're MNU certified and that's part of the point.
I also presented my first lecture(s) to the fitness community that I coach in, which was an immensely prideful moment for me and led to success. MNU definitely contributed to that confidence that I am indeed good enough.
During MNU, when lockdown hit I hosted a 'Fat Loss 101' seminar for my gym over Zoom. Over 60 people showed up and listened to me for over an hour, which truly distilled in me the feeling of 'Oh yeah, I can do this'. Lots of people asked questions and I felt confident in answering every one of them, and making them all laugh along the way.
MNU is by far the best course I have ever taken.
Life changing both for myself personally and professionally but also for the health and wellbeing of my family!
The level of support that was available was great and it is reassuring as I transition from student to practitioner that the support is ongoing in the Mentoring Lab.
My husband was my first experience at coaching and he has had huge gains from my newfound knowledge. He is a road racing athlete who struggled with excess weight for years which held him back from achieving his goals. Right from the start of the course, I helped him lose 20lbs of fat mass without losing Lean muscle mass and he is now unstoppable!
His cycling buddies saw the difference and wanted to know what changed, he gave them my business card. I now have a queue of middle-aged men in lycra with big aspirations waiting for coaching! I wouldn't change a thing!
I absolutely loved this course! The knowledge I have gained is amazing. MNU has changed my life.
MNU's platform was great and had everything I needed.
The Student Group threads for each week were great, I would often need something clarifying and after reading through the comments I would normally find the answer. It was good to know I wasn't the only one struggling! The tutors were also active in the Student Group too.
I definitely had some 'aha' moments. I loved Sarah's lectures. No matter what she taught, she was always so enthusiastic and informative.
I loved the homework as it allowed me to create some resources that I will use in the future.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Mac-Nutrition Uni Course, I am actually sad it is over!
The course is structured very well to drip-feed all the information you need to gain an introductory level of nutrition knowledge.
It also provides fantastic resources which enable you to further your understanding and interest in specific fields of nutritional research.
I am more confident in providing nutrition advice for my clients and significantly more confident in my ability on how and where to find nutritional research if I am asked a question and I don't have the answer at hand.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone who would like to level up their understanding of nutrition, be it for work or your own interest.
The MNU course was exactly what I needed. I really enjoyed the way the course was built and how everything came together.
A highlight for me was realizing, whilst prepping for exams, that I really had learned a lot and I could apply the knowledge in real-life situations.
Since finishing MNU, I have been hired by Macros Inc as a Fitness and Nutrition Coach!
Being involved in fitness and nutrition has been a lifelong goal that I left behind many years ago, but between MNU, and a really great mentor (also an MNU Graduate), I've made that dream and goal a reality.
I completed the MNU course to widen my own knowledge in order to help others.
The quality of learning methods was great and studying the course online was helpful as I could work wherever I needed; I've completed this course whilst working and being a busy Mum, and I've shown my children what you can achieve if you work hard.
I've learnt so much.... much more than I expected. The MN LIVE Days were also very interesting. I feel much more confident in my own nutrition knowledge and I've thoroughly enjoyed doing it. I would definitely recommend MNU.
What is offered behind the scenes is incredible (support, Mentoring Lab, Student Group, additional lectures etc...). It's definitely one of those things that the more you put in, the more you get out.
Mac-Nutrition Uni is well structured, informative, and well presented.
I am super impressed by the number of resources available - this included not only lecture content, quizzes, homework, and additional reading, but also the resources available through the Mentoring Lab.
All MNU resources are proving invaluable to me, as a career changer.
I really enjoyed the variety of learning opportunities - the differing lecturers kept things fresh on a week-by-week basis. I've really enjoyed feeling challenged by the content, but also the manner in which it is delivered.
Of particular interest to me were the lectures on the Ageing population and the Eating Disorder lectures.
The level of student support was second to none.
I received timely feedback with any email queries. The end of module 'Check-in Weeks' gave me the opportunity to clarify items of concern, immediately, and were also a valuable bonding opportunity with my student cohort.
I cannot imagine that any other course will ever come close to MNU.
I have achieved goals on a personal level in ways that I never expected to, I have learnt so much about myself, never mind about nutrition!
I have found a whole new world of opportunity with an empowering support network of like-minded people and resources.
I have made friends and encountered new and unexpected business opportunities. I have achieved so much more than my original goal of wanting to learn what good nutrition actually meant for me, my family, and my training. I have had massive success with my own relationship with food, and with how I teach my kids about it.
I swore never again to study after my degree when I was 21. I'm 42 now. You hooked me in! MNU has presented me with an opportunity for a new career and one that I can be completely passionate about. Amazing.
MNU has been incredible and I really look forward to keeping in touch with the team, the people that I have met, and the learning.
Everything about MNU has been amazing, it has directly helped me to add to my income as a personal trainer.
The support was professional and insightful.
The results I have achieved with clients, after implementing the tools from MNU, are exponentially better compared to before.
I always knew the theory of nutrition but I didn't have the skills to coach real people into change.
MNU has allowed me to stand out against other personal trainers around me.
MNU has always been on my bucket list for continued learning and I’m absolutely thrilled to say that it does live up to the hype.
The lectures were so exceptional that I worked through everything twice and the student support was helpful and accommodating.
I’ve gained a deeper appreciation and gratitude for my work and have developed new passions for working with the elderly, pregnant women, and endurance athletes.
Sarah has somehow managed to instil in me a love for both hydration and elderly nutrition, neither of which are areas I would ever have expected to be excited by.
I have come away with so many creative ideas for my business to attract the right clients.
MNU has even inspired me to help those that cannot afford to work with me one-on-one through free education on social media.
The course has given me a much more well-rounded confidence in nutrition for health in a broad spectrum of individuals.
I would highly encourage anyone in the field to do this certification!
The support on MNU is fantastic - the Student Group allows you to read other students' questions and be immediately notified of important updates and any questions are answered quickly and fully by the amazing team.
Even when you don't need it, it is so clear that support is there and that is just as important.
The LEARN platform is great, everything is in one place, organised, and clear in terms of what should be prioritised.
The course itself is all you would ever need and more to become an amazing practitioner.
This is the first time I have studied whilst working full-time and I put more energy into this course than any other.
MNU has only made me more interested in nutrition and more confident that I could turn my interest into a business.
I felt MNU was designed for my benefit! The content was on point and the vast resources absolutely exceeded my expectations.
I felt motivated and inspired, it never felt like pressure.
I got the sense that I belonged to an amazing community where I was supported and could constantly learn and grow as a practitioner.
At the start of the course in one of the Mentoring Lab videos, I heard the advice 'own your postcode'. I really took it to my heart and now - this is how I am building my business, getting my first clients. It was the best business advice I've been ever given.
People now know what I do and they approach me, chat & ask about nutrition - I love it! :)
I would say that MNU is one of the best (if not the best) nutrition course! It is extremely relevant and practical in terms of the topics covered.
The quality of the lectures and the support received throughout is top-notch.
There was a lot of practical and interesting information in these lectures that directly applied to my current practice.
MNU has definitely given me more confidence when working with clients.
It has also taught me to be a good listener. This is something that I have consciously started to take care of in my consultations and it has helped me tremendously to build rapport.
I am just proud to be a part of this community. I take pride in being an MNU Certified Nutritionist.
MNU was amazing. It was worth every hour of study and revision and exceeded my expectations.
I have built knowledge that I didn’t even think was possible. Thank you to everyone at MNU!
The lectures were formatted in a way that was easy to follow and I really enjoyed the quizzes at the end to test my knowledge and highlight any areas that needed revision.
As someone who is looking to change careers, the support network was brilliant.
A highlight for me was building a solid knowledge base that now allows me to confidently talk to people about nutrition.
MNU is by far the best online course I have completed.
MNU has been nothing like I have done before! It has honestly changed me and ultimately my career, for the better.
The knowledge I have gained, along with the level of support, guidance, and accountability, is unparalleled to anything out there.
The MNU team care about their teachings and how that will impact us as practitioners.
Being able to piece different lectures together, and learning about areas that I have been wrong about in the past - I wouldn't change anything.
Upon qualifying as an MNU Certified Nutritionist, I have been offered an opportunity that will see me as a lead nutritionist in a new private health care clinic.
The level of detail, support and quality of delivery on MNU is way above anything else I have done before.
My personal highlight was definitely the lectures around clinical populations, as a few of my clients were suffering from PCOS and diabetes. It was such a good feeling to apply the knowledge I had learnt and improve their health as a consequence.
I would just like to say a massive thank you for delivering such a high-quality, instantly applicable and practical nutrition course.
I have done a few courses before but none have been evidence-based or as powerful as MNU.
I know MNU will massively impact my business, my client results and my reputation as I grow my online coaching company to the next level.
Mac-Nutrition Uni is so far above any other course I have done in terms of not only being a great, well-rounded and in depth, nutritional education but also the level of detail on the practical and business elements of working as a nutritionist are second to none in my opinion.
I would like to thank the MNU team for a wonderful, well-produced and thoughtful education experience, which I'd never have imagined I'd experience studying online.
For multiple personal reasons, this has been one of the most stressful and sad years I've ever experienced and studying MNU amidst it all has been extremely tough at times, but all the way through, I have just simply loved the content and learning, and this is what has driven me through these tough times to keep going.
MNU is just right, challenging yet offered in a simple way where necessary. Manages to pitch it to all abilities and backgrounds as long as you're prepared to work hard and remain curious.
By Module 6 all the pieces dropped together and now I am confident to run my business in my own way with a solid foundation underneath me. I don't think I have ever finished a course feeling so determined and ready to go for it!
I have already signed up 5 clients through word of mouth and through a thread I commented on. They are finding me! I know it's because I wear MNU with pride which gives people the confidence I know what I am talking about!
I cried when my final exam finished, it was a relief but I was also sad that it was over. I want to remain part of the family as my business and experience grow. This is just the beginning but I know it's going to be amazing, thank you!
The value and practicality of MNU far outweighed my university degree.
Every MNU lecture allowed me to immediately add value to my clientele as a personal trainer.
Martin's lectures are really enjoyable to listen to, every lecture was empowering. I feel like nothing was missed even on the business side of things, MNU has made me a really confident practitioner.
It would be great for other PTs to understand how valuable MNU is. It's not just a nutrition course, it teaches you how to think critically, reflective practice strategies, and puts you way ahead in an industry that I would unfortunately say is very confused when it comes to nutrition.
MNU should be the gold standard for PTs that do offer nutrition services, PTs need a certification to physically train people, MNU should be the certification to allow them to offer nutrition coaching.
I have thoroughly enjoyed Mac-Nutrition Uni from start to finish.
MNU has surpassed all expectations in terms of depth of information, ongoing support provided and the social aspect of the course too, having met many fellow students along the journey.
The tutors have been great, very helpful in student threads and friendly throughout.
The course has given me additional peace of mind that I am delivering the best nutritional advice possible to help clients tackle their challenges.
MNU is up-to-date and evidence-based information that has been communicated to us in a way that is easy to understand.
As students, we are able to then pass this on to our clients to help them navigate the minefield that is nutritional advice.
MNU has been a game-changer for me personally and for my business!
MNU is absolutely outstanding! The freedom to ask questions meant I learnt so much.
I loved the practical and evidence-based learning with real life application to give you that ‘Ah’ moment. The whole course was incredibly informative, allowed me to question my bias and has given me the confidence to educate from evidence.
MNU has been challenging but flexible and has allowed me to deal with a number of life’s curveballs and still pass.
I only found MNU accidentally through social media but so glad that I did. Thank you all for your endless support, professionalism and humour!
I would highly recommend it to anyone who is willing to listen.
MNU was extremely professional and student support was brilliant.
The whole experience and excitement of studying with MNU and being affiliated to such a professional brand was a highlight for me.
I have always wanted to have a career in helping/working with people to better their lives. I've thought of many avenues - I just did not know exactly how to approach a method of helping people.
Becoming a nutritionist just clicked for me - I knew this is how I could impact people's lives both physically and mentally. MNU has allowed me to create this path - for which I am grateful.
The lectures transition brilliantly, from introducing new concepts to applying them to a practical setting. I've been applying all my nutritional knowledge for additional weight loss/gain with all my clients and myself.
MNU provided a high level of support considering it was online.
I'm so thankful to MNU, and I have even recommended the course to lots of my friends, family and PT colleagues.
I am looking forward to my career as a nutritionist, and knowing I have full support within the Mentoring Lab and the MNU community gives me the confidence to press on!
MNU was the best nutrition course I've completed.
My personal highlights included debunking a lot of pseudoscience and learning how to be more critical in my thinking.
I started to coach my mother in law remotely and she has been able to drop from 92kg to 75.8kg.
Now my father has requested my help! I'm giving my children a healthier version of their grandparents for a longer time.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and it has definitely expanded my outlook on nutrition.
The level of support was far greater than on my university degree. The tutors always responded so quickly and nicely to any questions I had, almost instantly in some cases! I felt like no question was ever silly which was great as a newcomer to nutrition education.
I loved absorbing so much knowledge, particularly about human behaviour and I now feel like I am capable to start my own nutrition business.
I have found real success in my own understanding for sure. I look forward to keeping in touch with the MNU team throughout my career.
Well, considering most PT's do a 2-day seminar and call themselves nutrition 'performance' coaches. MNU obviously blows that out of the water.
I have done different nutrition courses as well as a university degree and the other nutrition courses I did are not even comparable to MNU. They are essentially a show-up and pass.
There is a lot of guru info in some other nutrition courses that can be laughed at, from an evidence-based standpoint.
I have had several clients lose decent amounts of weight. 2 male clients losing 20kg's and several losing 10+kg.
One client who really struggled with adherence due to huge amounts of life stress and commitment, was able to obtain sub 100kg body weight, despite all his 'road blocks' using what I learned on MNU including low-hanging fruit and really focusing on habitual recommendations that could be adhered to.
I also promoted an online diet challenge on Instagram hoping for 10 sign-ups. Ended up getting 65 people signing up! I have a massive Facebook group that is really active, and MNU has given me a 'light at the end of the tunnel' to chase.

The last one and half years have been really tough and MNU has been a safe space and something to look forward to throughout. I can’t wait for the world to open and to attend some Mac-Nutrition Live days!
The way that MNU is structured makes it easy to follow and keep track. The Student Group works so well that you feel like you are in a class, not just by yourself online.
All my questions were replied to and it’s really easy to go back to previous lectures to see what’s already been asked.
I value completing MNU as one of my biggest achievements!
I just want to thank the MNU team so much for this adventure.
MNU was very thorough, provided lots of information and was clearly presented.
I really enjoyed the residentials, I learnt a lot from them!
One of my practice clients (who came to me with disordered eating), has developed much better habits & a much happier relationship with food and with herself.
I’m excited to spend time revisiting the Mentoring Lab now that I have some free time to prepare some useful documents to work from in the future.
MNU has been a great course!
MNU covers every aspect of the consultation process which is really great. I was able to help a woman lose 20kg and changed her lifestyle in the process!
MNU is a high-level course, even though it was online I feel that the support was excellent. In the Student Group, I always found help, every question was answered in a short time. I wasn't afraid to ask any questions because I knew that the environment was friendly and there to help.
All the information is up to date and real-life scenarios were discussed in every lecture.
After the course, I grew my Instagram page to 6,500 followers in only a year.
I wouldn't change anything about MNU. I am very proud to be a part of this course, it has been my best investment to date! Thank you all for everything. You are THE BEST!
The information on MNU has been a great addition to my previous knowledge.
The support is super good plus the Student Group is easily accessible and I was able to ask about any doubts or questions I had.
The course content was way better than any other course I've done, I think the myth-busting has been my highlight.
Thank you MNU for making such an amazing course, I feel sad that it is coming to an end as it has become a part of my life and my routine and once I have completed MNU, I will always think that something is missing.
The level of support and quality of Mac-Nutrition Uni was beyond what I expected. The support was just as good as a face-to-face course and always available if needed.
Applying all the theory into real life scenarios and learning consultation skills is what sets MNU apart from other courses, plus the quality of information being evidence based.
MNU has given me knowledge, but also lots of confidence, opening up a whole new career for me without racking up huge University debts
MNU was harder than my degree but I felt such a sense of accomplishment when I understood things and they clicked into place.
I loved being able to ask for help in the Student Group, and found Sarah & Billy really helpful when they answered my questions.
After MNU, I was able to really help a client who has PCOS as a direct result of my learning. The course has given me both the knowledge and the confidence I needed.
Thank you so much for the opportunity. If I pass, I know I'll have such a sense of pride and achievement, and I'll be among a really great group of professionals.
Having spoken to people doing various other online courses, it's clear that MNU has a much higher level of student support & interaction and is set out in a much better way, for example, new lectures released each week rather than all at once.
It also seems to have a much higher level of focus on the practical side of things in comparison to other courses, both in person or online.
I had a post-menopausal woman see me for weight loss. After having a bit of a chat she mentioned that she had done Isagenix before and didn't mind the fasting element of it. After a bit more talking we decided to go with an 8hr eating window as the method for weight loss. I saw her again 2 weeks later and she had lost 1.5kg.
It may only sound small but prior to MNU I probably would have just said something like "I know you've done tracking before so I think we should do that again," but because I didn't want to lead her in any direction, I was able to use a bit of motivational interviewing to find a potentially more suitable option.
The student support and level of learning on MNU were above and beyond what I expected.
The main highlights for me were the modules on Energy Balance, Weight Cutting & Myth Busting.
I have helped my husband to lose weight, get lean and strong leading up to his 50th birthday. I've also helped a fighter drop 16kg to make fight weight and helped one of my PT clients to lose 7 stone.
I’ve loved the course & can’t believe it has come to an end already.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and if MNU were offering other courses, I would be the first to put my hand up.
MNU is very well presented, it was easy to access material through LEARN, interactions on Student Group worked very well and tutors responded very quickly.
I was able to share the knowledge I had learnt with friends and family, which included the importance of establishing and maintaining good daily habits and things they could easily implement to improve their own health.
Having a positive impact on other people over the last 12 months has been the highlight for me, I managed to help get a client from 117kg to 103kg, it was an amazing feeling.
MNU is a very interactive course and queries are answered extremely quickly.
The course pushed me out of my comfort zone and this has made me more confident in myself as a result.
There were so many highlights, but flying over for the Case Studies residential and meeting all my fellow MNU students was my favourite part. As soon as I met the MNU staff they totally settled my nerves and gave me a boost that I would have an amazing weekend and they were correct.
In comparison to my degree, the level of student support from MNU is huge and you are encouraged to ask as many questions as possible.
MNU is the best nutrition course out there and an absolute must for any health and fitness professional.
The level of student service was next level. I can’t praise the MNU gang enough, they were super helpful through all aspects of the course and everything else in between.
What I have learnt and gained from MNU will set me up for great success with my future nutrition business.
My personal highlights were how helpful the MNU team were, and the ethics of the course: wisdom, confidence and integrity.
The course was a complete success for me, the friends I’ve made along the way are just priceless and I am very proud to be a part of such a great movement.
Martin and his staff LEGITIMATELY care about you and your success.
The lectures were great, Martin and the other presenters are REAL people with experience so they are great to learn from.
I loved the jokes and humour injected into the lectures, Martin has picked his team well.
After MNU, I've helped a client of mine that I've had for over a year to lose 80lbs.
The team respond quickly to emails and you can tell they actually care.
The Mac-Nutrition Uni course was unparalleled to all other nutrition courses I've looked into.
I've taken several courses as a post-grad, some have been lamentably poor, others quite good but none come even close to the level of support, the quality of materials and teaching, and attention to detail of MNU.
Not only was MNU better on practically every front, but the team also sustained this performance throughout the whole year and at each face-to-face event.
Although it wasn’t an area that I would have guessed I would enjoy, the lectures on “making weight”, advanced nutrition for team sports, and advanced nutrition for endurance athletes were fascinating.
I really enjoyed some of the soft skills lectures around practitioner consultations, and ANY opportunity to meet my cohort, past MNU graduates, and the MNU team was always excellent and very enjoyable.
I don't want it to end!!!!!
MNU was hands down better than my master's degree and my PGCE in terms of support and practical application, delivery and pedagogy.
The residentials made a big difference to my confidence and eradicated any sense of imposter syndrome I had as a career changer.
Being able to set up my own business off the back of MNU is a massive highlight for me and I’ve already been asked to deliver staff training and well-being in my own primary school.
This course has had me emotionally invested more than any other I’ve done due to the quality of the lectures, care from the MNU team and the community being built.
I can’t wait to step into a new career and start developing my skills as a practitioner and for that, I can’t thank MNU enough!
The sheer amount of high-level education covered on MNU is completely unlike other courses. From the Student Group, to the lectures delivered by tutors, you are not just left to read a textbook like on other courses.
This course has helped me level up my knowledge and business integrity to a high standard and will ultimately allow me to provide a service that clients deserve.
The Case Studies Residential was brilliant, it felt like much more of a supported learning environment compared to large group meets.
I had friends who had gestational diabetes, and also others who needed help with an elderly relative, it was lovely to be able to help them with some advice I had learnt on MNU and point them in the direction of areas to look at.
Thank you for creating such a brilliant certification, I only wish I had discovered it sooner!
What really impressed me was the set-up of MNU, it was well structured and clear to understand.
Student support was on point and the team was quick, reassuring and able to clarify any doubts in a matter of minutes.
I believe MNU has helped me a lot in terms of supporting a broader clientele.
The course was challenging and the main thing that stood out for me when comparing to other courses that I have done, was the priority to encourage critical thinking from the very beginning.
A highlight of mine was definitely the myth-busting and being able to learn REAL knowledge and use it forever!
You guys are rocking it and I wouldn't change anything. The course is challenging, yes, but at the same time, it is doable even for a person like me whose first language is not English.
I loved how detailed MNU was, there were so many applicable theories that I could use with clients straight away.
Module 4 was amazing, I really enjoyed it! I also loved learning about specific populations: PCOS, Pre & Post Natal and Athletes.
I've realised that not every client needs to track calories to be successful. It may sound like an obvious thing, but I have a background in bodybuilding so it was always the way I would do things. I am confident I can now coach clients in small steps rather than be "a macro coach"
MNU was amazing, I really enjoyed the whole course and I feel privileged that my qualification has been done through you. Keep MNU funny and entertaining as it is, it really takes the edge off from serious stuff and it made me feel like I know you all. Love everything about it!
I have done both a BSc and an MSc and can honestly say MNU was well above them both in terms of content, quality, relevance within the industry, applicability and most importantly support.
The whole course was a big highlight but personally, I really enjoyed the muscle gain and performance module and feel that it could be the direction I go in the future.
In the past, I would offer generic advice to friends and family regarding health and lifestyle which always fell on deaf ears. With me studying with MNU my authority has grown within my family and social circle to the extent where they are coming to me for advice and actively adhering to it. This may seem small but to me, it's a big win!
The community aspect of MNU is great as you always have others to ask and learn more from.
The content of the course is so applicable which far outweighs any other nutrition courses I have completed, including my degree.
The residentials were great, I made a great group of friends and we still stay in touch now.
One of the big things for me was overcoming imposter syndrome, I now have so much more confidence that I actually know what I am doing.
I have gained 1-2-1 clients and delivered paid workshops by mentioning that I am studying with MNU.
I honestly don't think I'd change anything about the course.
The material on MNU was far superior to my other nutrition certification. I've had the added experience of taking university courses online during the COVID quarantine and can say the MNU user experience far surpassed my university courses.
The course was engaging, informative, and interactive through the Student Group community. I feel like I've gotten a great education and a new peer group. The support from the MNU staff was fantastic.
During the course, my mother was diagnosed with some health conditions that can be dramatically improved through nutrition. I am so grateful that I now have the knowledge and confidence to help guide her through this challenge.
The course is structured in such a logical way that nothing ever felt overwhelming.
Any support comes from someone who cares and is willing to take the time to listen and provide a personalised response.
I feel part of something bigger than a course. It's more than that. It's a family and a community.
I'm now following my passion and doing what I love, a huge part of that is down to MNU.
For me, the highlight of the course is that I've had so many client successes that I can attribute to knowledge gained from MNU.
During MNU, the level of support and quality of the course content was incredible throughout the year. This allowed me to apply the knowledge I had learnt to help all my clients straight away.
There are too many great aspects to highlight but as a whole, this course was incredibly well laid out and I couldn't have had a better experience.
Personally, I think I have just "leveled up" as a practitioner which has allowed me to change so many people's lives.
There is nothing I would change. The MNU course is amazing and I am glad to be a part of this community of like-minded individuals with the same passion.
On MNU, the level of student support was great, but I also enjoyed that it talked a lot more about how to apply what we've learnt in real life with actual clients.
I liked that there were so many resources, including reference lists for each of the modules. I'm already in the nutrition field and have been for two years, but learning about some of the research behind different topics and being able to reference those when necessary is pretty huge to me.
I also appreciate all of the content inspiration that I've gotten from MNU.
I've had a few clients who have PCOS or are postpartum, and I've been more confident in how I make recommendations for them because of MNU.
The week-to-week lectures were great, it wasn't overwhelming from the start. It has been absolutely fabulous. I feel like I've learnt so much.
I signed up for a different course in 2012 and still haven't watched one lecture because there was 'always time' and never a cutoff. I found MNU much more achievable and supported, even when I fell behind.
Many courses I go in and out of with the same bias, but this completely opened up my mind and taught me so much that I don't feel like I have a bias anymore. If anything, it's made me feel like the more I know, the more I realise that I don't know because there is so much information out there.
MNU was brilliant, the structure was great and the way you can practically apply the information learnt and relay it in real-life consultations is invaluable.
After completing MNU, I now feel confident to branch off and run my own nutrition business.
The support was very good, especially during COVID where there has been a lot of anxiety and worry so the 6 month extension option made me feel at ease going into the exam period.
I was honestly blown away by how good MNU was, it exceeded my expectations and they were high to begin with, I can't thank MNU enough for the confidence it has given me to drive my own nutrition business.
MNU offers the best content and format, the delivery made sense and was structured well.
My best client success story so far is a 174kg woman with PCOS who has lost 10kg.
For the first time, she has freedom in her food choices, better life habits, a better relationship with food, and has reduced binge episodes greatly.
The course is awesome, not always easy, and requires extra attention, but it is so rewarding.
MNU has everything, the quality of lectures, the applicability to my current career and the integrity of the MNU team and students. I LOVE IT.
I loved module 5, learning about clinical populations and also the supplements lecture. I also enjoyed the check-in weeks.
I have worked with a PCOS client and helped improve their weight loss, confidence and ultimately their quality of life.
I've also had a huge decrease in imposter syndrome, which I did struggle with. The MNU team are awesome, this course meant a lot to me.
MNU is a very high-quality course because of the content, teachers and student support.
I appreciated the flexibility regarding watching and listening to lectures. Everything seems extremely thought out and put into place with great attention to detail. I loved how it felt like it was an in-person course.
I now have more and more people who are asking for my help with nutrition coaching!
The quality of every aspect and person involved in this course is simply remarkable! I very much appreciate the attention to detail, this pushed me to be better and aim for excellence.
I was surprised by the level of student support offered on the MNU course!
The MNU team really sets you up with the necessary skills to be the best practitioner possible.
Emails were replied to within a day and it never felt like a generic email - the staff were always so accommodating and friendly.
There isn't a course that compares - it's such a great course.
MNU was a new experience for me as it was the first academic course that I've done online.
I loved learning hacks that I wouldn't have otherwise known and also being forced to put together nutrition resources that I will use over and over again.
I've helped 3 clients lose 40kg in 3 months using principles learned on MNU to help me guide them on their process.
MNU compared very favourably to other courses that I had done, it's a great course with a great sense of community.
Content fully supported by science, taught with much higher applicability to real-life scenarios is why this is undoubtedly the number one nutrition course in the world!!
Making science real life and delivering an easily accessible course to a high standard has given me the confidence I have been missing to reach out and improve lives through the power of nutrition.
This is the first course I have done where I have had to run it alongside a full-time job and it has been an extremely encouraging and supportive experience.
The accessibility of the support options has, for me, exceeded all expectations!
I have done Open University courses previously and MNU provided an unprecedented level of support in comparison. Also, the course Student Group and Mentoring Lab have been extremely helpful in confirming doubts and clarifying points.
I loved conceptualising macronutrient theory. I can’t really pinpoint only one highlight but Modules 3 and 5 were my fave.
MNU has provided structure at a time that I really needed something other than life to focus on. Not only that, you have educated me to a degree I feel confident to talk about nutrition and more importantly, know what I am talking about. I will be forever in your debt.
In comparison to other courses, MNU was far superior and having someone on duty during the weekends was a great help, especially with time zone differences.
The content has been far more applicable in real life, as in comparison my PT course taught me concepts which I was a little bit 'suspicious' about hence my enrolment in MNU.
MNU has also given me the absolute confidence that my clients will receive my best in coaching them because MNU has set the standard of what it means to be a practitioner, who first does no harm.
Everything about MNU is professional yet warm and friendly.
I felt supported and genuinely cared about rather than just another name on a list.
The core skills were brilliant, I’ve developed much more than just my nutrition knowledge thanks to this course.
I really enjoyed the lectures on Obesity and Eating Disorders, turns out MNU was a bit of a self discovery journey as well as self development.
Since the course, multiple clients of mine have finally broken the cycle of yo-yo dieting and are building a much better relationship with food.
MNU offers a very high level of student support - it really felt like the tutors were invested in the students, collectively and as individuals.
With MNU you get everything you need. The best information, the tools for how to deliver that information and how to be a successful nutrition practitioner.
A highlight for me was definitely the Case Studies residential, I came away from that weekend significantly more confident in my ability to work in the nutrition industry.
I knew when I signed up for MNU I would learn a lot and enjoy it. 12 months of content later, it has definitely exceeded all my expectations.
MNU was very interactive with access to the Student group and also the Mentoring Lab.
MNU has made me a better person and coach, questioning more things and not taking everything at face value.
I was able to apply what I was learning to my clients and provide them with the latest research.
Many of my clients have now improved their health with the knowledge and methods I have learnt, from supplement dosing and benefits, to fully understanding the principles.
My clients now feel more confident and in control of their nutrition.
MNU exceeded my expectations!
The level of support, course content, learning platform and applicability to actually help people achieve tangible results was far, far better than the other courses I have done.
After many years of studying as a PT & having completed 4 prior nutrition courses, I finally feel confident in my abilities to help clients achieve results.
While studying with MNU, my clients' results have been way better than I've experienced before.
I only wish that I found MNU sooner!
I enjoyed the way in which the MNU lectures were delivered in terms of building knowledge, increasing in complexity and real-life applications as the course went on.
All of the lecturers were engaging and knew their fields.
I enjoyed all of the lectures and Nutritional Myths was a particular favourite. The LIVE lecture recordings were also excellent.
MNU has provided me with the first step toward my career in nutrition.
The Student group was also a great place to read through scenarios and apply knowledge.
I felt so happy and confident that the money I had spent on MNU was well worth it.
The residential was definitely a highlight - everyone was so amazingly nice!
MNU was better than I thought it would be in terms of the knowledge gained. Every time I watched a lecture I was left in awe of the course and knowledge the MNU team has.
I was being taught by real leaders in the industry!
I applied for a paid nutrition internship role with Isa Robinson Nutrition. She told me I stood out, despite the fact I don't have a nutrition degree which was what they were looking for!
MNU had much more in-depth content than any other course I've ever done before.
I really enjoyed the in-depth information about PCOS.
I have enrolled one of my employees on MNU and hope to get all of us certified so that I can say my whole company is MNU certified.
Since finishing, I have started working with a few ultra-endurance athletes and seen huge performance gains!
I have a Sports Science degree so I already had a good understanding of Nutrition. However, just as I learnt from MNU, there is so much more to Nutrition, especially the critical thinking aspect of it.
MNU enabled me to dive deep into each topic, appreciate the pros and cons of research and learn how this is applied in the real world.
Completing the course was a highlight for me, especially as having a busy day job made it quite difficult to keep up at times! At some points, I was about 10 lectures behind due to travelling but with the course being online, I was able to catch up in my own time.
I have started working with clients on a case study basis already. It’s been a wonderful journey and I’m excited about the next step.
I found MNU perfect. It challenged me and I loved the whole vibe of it.
I love how the MNU team have created a learning platform with amazing camaraderie, endless amounts of info and great humour.
You really feel like your part of something exciting and big, which confirms that this is the course you need to do.
I have assisted an ultra-marathon runner to optimise her nutrition, assisted a lady in losing weight to conceive and motivated members of my gym to make healthier choices without the need to track.
MNU blows previous courses out of the water!
It helps you to be able to apply information to clients on a day-to-day basis.
My highlights were the nutritional myths lecture and the PCOS lecture.
I have a couple of clients who suffer from PCOS and being able to apply what I learned to help them was a game-changer.
We set expectations at the start of the process and built confidence and are now smashing the weight loss with newfound confidence which makes the whole job worthwhile.
The level of support, mentoring and encouragement I received as an MNU student was phenomenal.
In this respect, MNU is so far ahead of other courses I have completed.
The highlights for me have all come from being able to put my learning into application when working with clients.
The course is extremely applicable to my career and as a result, has left me feeling a lot more confident in my ability.
I was very happy with the quality of the learning environment.
MNU is an incredible course, everything from content to student support was phenomenal.
I loved Module 4 which is when the course really came alive for me. In addition, Module 5 was so fascinating and joined a lot of the dots for me.
Since I started the course I have been working with clients, giving them nutrition & exercise programming and I am now on my 7th intake with three already planned for next month and going forward.
I could not have done it without the information from MNU. Life changing experience, just unreal.
Marina Leslie Wujastyk
I haven't really done a course like MNU before, my previous study has all been through universities. I was nervous about the remote nature and levels of support but was pleasantly surprised!
There was lots of support and the MNU course felt very thorough. I loved the lectures each week and was always so excited for their release.
I really liked the last couple of modules as we got to apply our knowledge to a range of clinical and sports settings. They really helped to cement my knowledge and apply what I had learnt into real-life scenarios.
I chose to do MNU after extensive research and also talking to people that had completed it. I can now say hands down that MNU is fantastic.
The support from the MNU staff is second to none. The Mentoring Lab is there to help with all business/educational needs.
I can't imagine another course offering anything even slightly similar to MNU.
The Body Composition residential was great and actually made me realise that my knowledge has grown tremendously - without even realising I've taken in the information!
The whole of MNU has been bang on the money :)
The specialist practice regarding specific populations was my favourite part of the course as it enabled me to help family and friends in need.
It's a good feeling to know I can help people through the knowledge I have learnt.
Also, developing a critical mindset when it comes to reading studies has been especially useful during the COVID pandemic - to look past the media headlines and assess what is really happening.
Through the knowledge I have learnt on MNU, I have been able to educate my parents on the basic requirements in their diet. Both are already feeling better because of my intervention! :)
The quality of the MNU course is insane.
The Mentoring Lab Student Group was invaluable, especially as someone from a different profession feeling out of their depth.
I got more from MNU than I got from my University course or any other course that I've done previously.
Top-notch content and delivery, I loved everything!
I helped my sister-in-law lose 30kg just from what I learned throughout MNU.
The learning environment was good. The materials and the usefulness of the information were far superior to other courses I have done previously. I loved MNU!
I loved Martin's lectures on muscle building and debunking nutrition myths.
Due to my increasing knowledge of nutrition, even my co-workers have started to come to me for advice.
MNU was much more interactive than other courses I have done previously, through the use of the Student group and lectures. I felt more connected with the lecturers even though I did it all online.
The flexibility of the course along with its top-notch information is the best thing about MNU. Many other courses are so rigid that I wouldn't be able to participate at this point in my life.
The quality of MNU was very high.
I was impressed with the quality of the lectures, the additional resources as well as the responsiveness of the team to any queries.
The course was fantastic! I highly recommend it to anybody looking to undertake studies in nutrition.
I found MNU a great way to learn, there was a supportive community in the Student group & the team were always helpful if I had a question.
MNU is the best course I have completed, period. I have been in the fitness industry for 12 years and the level of service and support you receive far exceeds other education companies.
My personal highlights were the evidence-based information, Martin flexing his triceps in every LIVE lecture and the huge volume and variety of education offerings by MNU.
Every day my nutritional knowledge & offering has been improved due to MNU. The course is amazing!
I will be asking the fitness franchise I represent that all coaches with a passion for nutrition complete the MNU certification.
Jared O Sullivan
Although MNU is online, the way it's run would be the same as being in a class in my opinion and you are actually tested properly at the end!
I have done other courses but this was far better in terms of being equipped to help a lot of diverse client groups once qualified
MNU is very well put together. I thoroughly enjoyed Modules 5 and 6, I had done nutrition courses before but this information was new to me.
I wouldn't change anything about the course, I really loved it!
The support and content on MNU is excellent.
The course was tough but it had everything there for me to learn and learn it well.
There is a genuine feeling of help and support from all the staff.
The comedy rolled into learning, this is big for me personally as I tend to switch off when having to sit for long periods. I wouldn't change a thing!
So thank you very much to every one of the Mac-Nutrition Team!
I do and would recommend MNU to anyone and everyone.
MNU gave a great level of support when compared to other nutrition courses. A great community was built and it definitely stood out.
My highlight was building the knowledge and understanding around key areas such as diabetes, PCOS, eating disorders and weight making for sport.
MNU has been a great learning curve and I now feel more confident with my nutrition knowledge as a whole.
The information on MNU was simple, applicable and up to date.
It took all the fluff surrounding nutrition and condensed all of the most important information that enhanced my knowledge as a practitioner, and allows me to really help my clients.
I loved gaining such a vast amount of knowledge and changing my entire paradigm around nutrition. I feel I have gained so much applicable knowledge that is invaluable.
MNU was, by far, the best course I have done.
MNU was highly applicable to my business unlike many other academic courses, which have had a limited practical use. There was lots of support and overall it was just a great course.
My favourite modules have to be the clinical and sports nutrition modules.
I have started to use advanced fat loss concepts with my PT clients to enhance their results.
I'd just like to thank Martin and his amazing team for a superb course that has really enhanced my knowledge and confidence in delivering cutting-edge, evidence-based nutrition advice to my clients. I would highly recommend MNU to anyone.
Brid O Sullivan
Being able to do lectures whenever you wanted was great, especially when trying to work.
It was so helpful to be able to re-watch lectures if I didn't understand anything the first time.
I got my first client a few months ago and had a total of 3 before Christmas, which was a big success for me.
Without this course, I would not have the confidence to do that so for that I am so grateful.
Thanks to all the MNU team for their work putting the course together, it's really well laid out and presented.
Elmarie Van Wyk
Mac-Nutrition Uni is SO much better than any course I have done before - nothing compares!
The learning environment is excellent, the student support is very good and the delivery of the information is very professional!
I loved muscle building, fat loss, obesity and CVD... These really got me more interested in furthering my knowledge on these topics.
Honestly, the lectures were absolutely great and I have enjoyed this course tremendously!
MNU was incredible and the best course I have ever done!
From the great course content to student and staff support - this course is definitely above the rest.
It has been great learning more about specific fields of sports nutrition such as endurance and weight making athletes.
I have been working with a client who was obese for 3 years and had gotten nowhere.
Since starting MNU and putting things into practice, she has now lost 5 stones!
I always found the support in MNU extremely high-level and as personal as it gets.
The Learn platform is very professional and the course material is just brilliant.
I feel much more confident in giving nutrition advice.
I really enjoyed learning more about how we can work with specific populations such as pregnant women, people with PCOS and Diabetes.
The high level of support, additional resources, and communication with the staff were second-to-none!
I loved the practical application MNU offers rather than just nutritional theory, as well as the information on how to work with certain populations.
The student group and Mentoring Lab Facebook group were a great resource to see other practitioners' opinions and discussions.
Working as a personal trainer, this course has been invaluable in providing a higher quality service to my clients and improving my confidence in delivering nutritional information.
MNU has just been incredible! When I've needed support from the staff and tutors, the response rate and quality has been excellent!
I've enjoyed the learning environment a lot, particularly the residentials, where I met friends for life.
A fellow student & I delivered a muscle-building seminar at a gym, we got lots of great feedback! One attendee said they couldn't tell we were students as we came across confident and knowledgeable.
I've run a fat loss seminar & again got some lovely feedback and client leads.
The information on MNU was more direct and focused on what I wanted to learn as well as being much more up to date than what I had learnt on other courses.
The course was presented clearly and in comparison to online courses I took in college, MNU was by far much more personal, interesting and organised.
It was so crazy how after every lecture I had a client or person that happened to be going through what we learnt so I could help them straight away!
MNU had top-class service from the start. The customer/student support was excellent and the course modules were better than what I did in university.
MNU is structured in a way that teaches you the required nutrition, but also prepares you to work with real clients!
Not only do Martin and his team educate you about nutrition but they also train you to become a practicing nutritionist. My personal highlight was Module 4 (Practical Nutrition Support) - I really enjoyed being taught how to be a nutrition coach.
I was a little apprehensive at first because it is a big investment, but I have zero regrets.
Having access to the Mentoring Lab for the year was also such a huge bonus. It has so much valuable content from industry experts; I even extended my subscription just so I can absorb it all.
Whilst I expected MNU to be better than my degree, I did not expect this level.
The level of student support has far surpassed that at uni, the mentors at MNU have been incredible.
My personal highlight would be how confident I am now I have completed MNU.
I really liked how well the course was taught and how genuinely interesting & engaging the team made it.
MNU is a life-changing course and I can't wait to follow my goals of becoming self-employed doing something I enjoy.
MNU is absolutely amazing.
Martin grabs the attention of the listener thus makes lectures very easy to digest.
I recently had a client who was 280lbs when we started our program, his current weight right now is 160lb.
With what I learned through MNU I was able to coach him without tracking every meal.
Other nutrition courses don't even come close to MNU in comparison. The info provided was very thorough, the quizzes actually challenge you and the lecture slides were great.
I now feel confident working with clinical populations. Since the course, I have coached a client through a twin pregnancy & gestational diabetes with very minimal weight or fat gain!.
I have also worked with several PCOS clients now with great success and actually identified a client with pretty bad binge eating tendencies, who I referred to a counseling service to help her further.
MNU is a top-class certification. It was a lot better than any other nutrition course that I've done in the past, not only with regards to the great content but also due to the unbelievable level of individual student support.
It has also been directly applicable to my career as a personal trainer and nutrition coach, I am now more confident in my nutritional knowledge and practice.
A highlight for me was learning how to be truly evidence-based and avoiding using personal biases and preferences with clients. I also enjoyed learning how to deal with a wide variety of clients and their different behaviours and conditions.
I was able to learn how to help my dad more with his Type 2 diabetes. I have given him some evidence-based recommendations that I learnt from the course that have helped him so far.
I also helped a PCOS client avoid a strict zero-carb diet that was recommended to her by her nutritionist, she was miserable about it and feared that eating any carbs would be detrimental to her, so that was great!
Overall MNU is a fantastic course. I am very pleased with the course content, and the way that Martin, Sarah & Billy delivered the course.
The Mac-Nutrition Uni course is top level. Top marks for every area!
My highlight was feeling part of an evidence-based movement to better the industry!
I now come across really well when talking about nutrition topics.
This is just the start of really pushing my PT career to the next level. I will stand out from others now that I am more clued up with nutrition!
Overall - I loved the course!
The residentials were definitely a personal highlight of MNU for me, being able to meet and learn with classmates really added value.
I was able to build a network of friends who have supported each other throughout, and I expect will continue to do so.
I felt really prepared for the exams with all the extra support we had access to, like the mock exams and homework model answers.
This course feels so important within the industry. Completing MNU alongside work and life is highly rewarding.
MNU is FAR superior to any other course.
It is EVIDENCE-BASED through and through, which means you can actually trust it!
MNU sets the bar high for how to work with people well, non-judgmentally, and with kindness.
That stuff really sets MNU apart from other courses.
I look forward to still being part of the community via The Mentoring Lab.
MNU is much more efficient in terms of student support than other courses I have done.
Great content, enjoyable course, and good interaction with others in student groups.
I loved the guest lectures - Rebecca Dent is great!
I really enjoyed the course after having such a negative experience with my 'real' university degree.
I love that the course is hard, and isn't just another online qualification that you get.
I actually learned a lot and the best bit about this course is that I can easily apply the information I learned to real-life client situations.
MNU is an amazing course! Definitely not your average certification, there is so much information to learn and use in the real world.
A highlight for me was realising that most of the nutrition information out there is total rubbish!
I have been helping a client who has PCOS and she has lost 28lbs in the 6 months that I have been working with her.
I wouldn't change a thing about the course! Martin and the MNU team are awesome!
MNU has given me the ability to have more faith in myself so now I just need to put myself out there.
I honestly thought MNU was absolutely brilliant!
The course covered SO much and everything was so well thought through and well planned.
I feel like this course has been a bit of a lifeline to help me change my career.
I am so glad I did MNU. I feel like this was an investment for my future, the rest is up to me now!
I enjoyed every moment of MNU.
The lecture delivery was incomparable, everything was very well explained and I have learnt so much.
The level of support is unbelievable, especially considering I did the Full Online course.
MNU taught me to effectively and carefully implement weight loss techniques that would promote 100% adherence. I have struggled with being overweight in the past and being able to put these strategies into place brings so much satisfaction.
I know that I will be able to effectively help myself and others with the information I have learnt on MNU.
MNU was my first online course and the support was unreal.
The group connection in MNU is amazing. A highlight of mine was meeting fellow nutrition nerds on the residentials!
I'm now speaking on camera and have gained so much confidence.
Studying MNU has pushed me to promote my services, gain clients and build my own group community.
MNU is the best course I have ever done in terms of practical knowledge and support.
I started to post online because of the MNU competition but as a consequence began to grow an audience and have already started coaching clients.
In the beginning, I had 5 free clients, and now have 8 paying clients who are seeing results and are very happy with my service.
MNU was a very enriching experience and I am very grateful for all the support provided.
The level of support on MNU was amazing, the amount of information provided was incredible and I loved all the lectures.
I loved learning about all the special populations (PCOS, Diabetes, etc) and in general I really loved the entire course!
My company is definitely growing as a result of the knowledge that was gained from completing MNU.
I have started online weight loss groups and they're working really well!
I really loved MNU, it was so amazing studying a subject I am genuinely interested in and passionate about.
The team and the customer service they provided was great, both online and in person.
The course taught me new things and gave me confidence in my knowledge, which is a fantastic feeling.
The Mentoring Lab is also a ridiculously useful tool when needing information for real-life situations.
MNU is easily the best course out there.
MNU offers incredible depth in theory, but it's also very practical!
This course motivated me to pursue my education as a coach and make a huge difference in my clients' health!
Having worked with two pregnant women the knowledge and confidence that I have gained has been incredible and has helped me to support them.
I was motivated to use the methods and principles I learnt and lost 20kg over the course of the last 12 months. I am inspired, motivated and proud! Words cannot express how I feel about MNU!
It was the most incredible learning experience! Mac-Nutrition Uni is the best nutrition course I have ever done!
The structure of MNU is outstanding & offers so many ways to learn.
Every single part of the delivery is carefully thought out & the quality of the content is excellent!
Nothing is spoon-fed (and yet very explanatory if someone is struggling with maths)!
Student assistance from the team is on point, especially the super-prompt answers, the team is always ready to find a solution for you.
MNU went above and beyond in every aspect, not to be too cheesy here but I honestly enjoyed every part of it!
It has been amazing to share my new knowledge with my mum, who has been overweight for a long time and now feels empowered by this information and is finally seeing some positive changes with her weight.
I'm so happy I chose MNU and can't thank the team enough. I couldn't be more excited to start practicing as an MNU Certified Nutritionist!
The level of support on MNU was something I've never had in other courses before. If there was ever any issue or question, someone was always there to help.
The course is applicable to so many different areas of my work. I really enjoyed the lectures on PCOS and diabetes and found all the extra resources available in the Mentoring Lab particularly useful.
Being able to provide evidence-based nutritional facts on my social media was great, as many people had no idea about a lot of things.
Thank you so much for the course! I was amazed at how in-depth the course was and I am so glad I found this course at the last minute. It's opened my eyes to a lot of things - including my own biases.
This is the first nutrition course I've studied after coming from a corporate (non fitness/nutrition) background.
For months, I researched courses available and when someone mentioned MNU, I felt like I struck gold just by looking at the syllabus. It was a no brainer decision for me.
I have been slowly helping my family and friends with general health, performance, fat loss goals and I feel confident when doing that, whereas before I was confused and unsure having gained 'knowledge' from the internet!
There was a great level of student support throughout MNU, comparable to my university studies if not even better.
This course is the reason I was able to secure my current position!
I managed to get a job at Holland & Barrett as a nutritionist, over people who applied who had degrees. Due to MNU, I managed to demonstrate in the interview process critical thinking and depth of knowledge.
MNU has changed my life, it has given me direction, a passion and given me so much confidence.
MNU was significantly more comprehensive than other courses I've completed previously!
It did a much better job preparing me to provide nutrition support to my PT clients.
MNU has given me additional knowledge and tools to work with my students.
I have seen significant health changes in many of the students, including those with Type 2 Diabetes and PCOS.
MNU was a really well-thought-out and organised course.
The lecture content and topics themselves have been great and covered a wide breadth of nutritional content, as well as soft skills needed to work in the nutrition business.
The Mentoring Lab and Student Group meant any questions that weren't covered could easily be discussed with world-leading experts.
It's very hard to pick out single highlights, the whole course has been incredibly well run.
I found that MNU was well structured and thought out, with information clearly presented.
Highlights for me were attending the residential weekends & generally improving my understanding of health and nutrition.
Since MNU, I have run my own nutrition talks within my firm and at my running club.
My friends and colleagues now know me as the 'nutritionist' and ask me for advice, which is great!
MNU offers incredible content and an incredible support system.
The amount of extra information and opportunity MNU gives students is second to none. Navigation through the websites and communication was exceptional.
Getting to meet everyone and being surrounded by like-minded people at the meet-ups, Body Composition residential and at the Case Studies weekend was a highlight for me.
MNU has something truly special to offer this industry and it’s with great pleasure I can now say that I am a part of it!
I think the friendships that I made on MNU was one of my unexpected highlights. I feel that it really added to the experience.
My peers helped to encourage me along the way as we could compare our personal experiences and discuss the lectures for further clarity.
It was always exciting to log in each week and start a new lecture.
While I was revising for the exams, I had lots of a-ha moments where all that I had learnt finally clicked in my mind.
I am so grateful for all of the knowledge and confidence that I have gained over the past year. I even got my Dad, who is 74 years young, to start taking creatine, vitamin D3, and protein shakes daily.
MNU always made you feel a part of the team with individualised emails, you aren't just a number.
Mac-Nutrition Uni was the first-ever online course I have done.
I was really impressed with the level of support that I received.
I really liked the student support group too and reading everybody's questions about certain lectures, which also helped me to understand things more when they were explained or broken down differently.
I feel that I have acquired really detailed information and understanding over the last 12 months. When I listen to podcasts or read articles I am able to understand what they are saying or pick out the BS.
The support from the team was amazing and they answered all my questions in a timely manner and provided extra links to papers and different videos in the mentoring lab for more information which I found fantastic.
You can tell the MNU team love what they do, the passion and enthusiasm is evident and it felt like everyone wanted you to succeed.
The group of students this year was also incredible, a fantastic bunch of people and really supportive.
I would highly recommend MNU to anyone looking at a career in nutrition.

MNU is online, but not isolated! Although the course is online I never felt 'alone' or without support.
The course content was relevant and covered aspects of applying the content in practice which I did not expect.
I loved the Hydration, Eating Disorders and Team Sports lectures especially.
It has given me confidence to start working on a brand and get my first clients.
The knowledge I have gained from MNU is, and will be, highly applicable to my business.
The Student Support Group was prompt, timely, and amazing and the learning platform & environment is robust, well-thought-out, and user-friendly.
I looked forward to every Monday class, enjoyed the guest lectures and Martin's tangents.
The whole course was the highlight of my year 2020!
MNU has opened my eyes and mind to the vast ways that nutrition can improve and impact every one of us.
The lectures were always clear and felt as if the tutors presenting them are genuinely passionate about nutrition.
MNU had a human touch that often you don't get with online courses. Each lecture featured some much-needed humour and light-heartedness throughout.
Overall, Mac-Nutrition Uni was interesting, full of information, and well-delivered. It didn't ever feel like it was out of touch for someone like me who doesn't have a scientific or mathematical background.
As a career changer, I would certainly recommend MNU to others hoping to do the same or to anyone wanting to improve their existing knowledge.
I've never seen such a specific, practical, logically structured course as MNU.
I graduated from a 4-year university degree in the field of food engineering and took a shorter nutrition advisor course in Hungary before MNU.
After attending one of Martin's lectures, it was not a question which course I was going to continue my studies with.
I feel like I made the best decision that will accompany me for a lifetime.
You get such comprehensive, credible knowledge from MNU, I'm pretty sure you can't get this anywhere else at the moment.
About nutrition, about working with clients... And of course thank you for the student support, it's really exemplary!
MNU combines research and education to provide theoretical and practical application.
It is the most comprehensive course of its kind.
The educational environment has been created for people to be successful.
The highlight was understanding how to put all the knowledge into practical application I can use with my clients!
The togetherness on MNU and the community that's been built is what stood out above all other courses.
My personal highlights were knowing the possibility of the quality practitioner I could become through the course, and the relationships & friendships I've built through MNU.
I have gained the confidence to say I can 100% help people and feel comfortable telling potential clients when they should see someone else. MNU has been truly life-changing.
Mac-Nutrition Uni has been amazing!
As a career changer I was worried that I wouldn't be able to keep up with the course and struggle to get the work done whilst working, however, it has been the complete opposite!
The lectures are so well structured and easy to follow and are spaced out over the weeks to give you enough time to complete them.
There are so many added extras that are not compulsory but are so helpful and beneficial to further develop knowledge on a particular area of nutrition.
All of that, as well as brilliant communication, support and care, from the MNU team as well as hard work from myself, has meant that I feel well prepared and excited to take my exams and become an MNU Certified Nutritionist.
I really liked that it was broken down into weekly tasks and that you could not 'fast-track' - this meant I was able to focus on learning, not just getting it done.
People put more trust in me knowing that I’m doing this course and that it’s evidence-based rather than a one-size-fits-all.
MNU was far superior to a diploma in Nutrition I have done in Australia.
It has been great! I am so glad I decided to do it.
I genuinely believe MNU is the best of its kind out there.
I've done other nutrition courses in the past, and found MNU leaps and bounds ahead.
I much preferred the structured learning as opposed to the 'learn in your own time' model.
The lectures relating to fat loss and behaviour change are highlights on their own.
Teaching the applicable information and getting rid of the fluff so you can help people, is all that matters.
The support was great, the MNU team took the time to answer any question I had in detail.
The level of information I received fits in perfectly with my PT clients. When everything started to come together, I started to understand why some of my clients weren't losing weight. I now have the ability and confidence to break it down for them to find the reason why.
Thank you for building such a great course, I've gone from guessing what to do next with a client and leaving it to chance, to knowing exactly what to do!
MNU has taught me the importance of reading & it has made me extremely open-minded and has changed my mindset so much.
I have helped more clients in different ways from PCOS, muscle gain, weight making and pregnancy.
It has changed my coaching & I could not have helped these people as much in the past.
The only thing I would change about the course is I would have done it sooner!
The level of support at MNU is fantastic! I always felt that there was lots of advice available if I ever needed it.
I had previously studied other short nutrition courses but MNU was much more in-depth and teaches you transferrable skills such as critical thinking.
MNU also teaches you how to use meta-analysis studies to help clients in the future with any niche situations or questions not covered by the course.
The Mentoring Lab is full of helpful information as well as confidence-building lectures and I will definitely continue using it in future.
I think anyone who is committed to being a good nutritionist would be crazy to miss out on MNU!
MNU is the best course I have ever done! The level of knowledge, not just relating to nutrition, but the practical side of working with clients was the best I have ever encountered.
The level of interaction was great and most importantly I feel like I now have the knowledge to go out and get results with many clients, give a good service and build my business having used many of the free resources.
I am now looking forward to helping so many more people and it is MNU that has given me the confidence to do that.
MNU went above and beyond what I could have ever imagined in every aspect of the course.
The MNU staff were fantastic, the friends I made were super supportive and the broad spectrum of other practitioners and experts that I was introduced to through the lectures and Mentoring Lab was invaluable.
My confidence is at an all-time high. I've learnt to check my personal bias and always be a curious, life-long learner.
I already had clients before starting MNU but this course has helped me be a better and more effective practitioner in terms of consultations, working with difficult clients, and being confident in my knowledge and communication skills.
MNU has increased my level of understanding and confidence to educate people more than other courses I've done.
The level of support was amazing. I now have real confidence moving forward.
Performance nutrition was my personal highlight but MNU has been outstanding from start to finish!
A client of mine with PCOS is extremely happy with my approach with her diet as she is losing weight which has been difficult for her in the past.
MNU has completely changed my mindset.
It has opened my eyes to a faster way of dieting which I feel has helped me in working with clients who I previously thought may have wanted too much too soon.
The student support was great when needed.
The course also has a great deal of application to real-world clients and the beauty of doing it online is enabling you to fit it in and around a busy life.
MNU is an excellent course, the mix of lectures, practical resources, reading material, the Mentoring Lab and the Student group covered all bases.
I loved every minute and would happily sit into the early hours of the morning to get through it.
I am amazed at how much I have learned in such a short space of time.
I found myself moving any and everything to get to lectures and other content because it was so enjoyable.
Mac-Nutrition Uni appealed to me because of its no-nonsense approach.
Nutrition is a guilty pleasure of mine and it has turned my pleasure into a mini business.
This was never the goal but it just "happened" and now I'm really enjoying assisting people with their nutrition and goals.
MNU had humor, it wasn't just lecture after lecture - the tutors have a human approach. They were also always available and responded very promptly when needed.
It was great to have interaction with other students either via the Student Support Group or through questions in the Mentoring Lab.
As one of the UK's leading Precision Nutrition Pro coaches, I cannot believe how much of a power-up taking MNU was.
MNU has given me the confidence, experience, and credibility to focus my attention on a specific audience.
I just helped one of my clients with Type 2 diabetes lose about 30kg in 3 months, I have reversed his diabetes and turned his life around!
Previous courses that I completed were very theoretical and not practical. So I found the practical side of MNU very interesting.
The MNU tutors were clearly all very interested in the topics they were teaching. This enhanced my interest - a personal highlight was the muscle-building lecture.
The level of student support was good, for example, having the opportunity to ask questions in the Student Support Group.
The level of depth on MNU was the key factor for me. The content on the course provided me with information that was important and useful, which has been amazing for building knowledge that is actually applicable to life.
The conversations I had with friends, family and clients during studying, came at perfect timing, as we would study a module and the next week someone would be asking me about that topic. I had never had the confidence to give answers to questions like that, but after MNU I do!
I have always suffered from imposter syndrome when it comes to posting on social media but now I feel I can do lives and posts and will be fine to handle any questions thrown my way. Thank you!
Derrick Van Every
I loved the course, it was great to further my knowledge as both an athlete and trainer!
MNU was very on par with my University degree in terms of support and learning environment
The lectures were very well done and I really enjoyed the exam period as well.
I personally have been dealing with cramping issues during my powerlifting competitions after making weight. I followed the strategies from the last MNU lecture at my National Championships and didn't cramp, it was awesome.
MNU was far better than any other course that I've studied!
MNU lets you develop as a practitioner.
My highlights were learning a lot of the basic principles that now seem so simple and I can't imagine how I never thought of or applied them before.
I have learnt so much and appreciate everything I'll be able to take forward from this course.
MNU was much more in-depth compared to other courses that I have done. It covered a wide array of topics and areas that are going to be applicable to my coaching and clients.
Having access to the Mentoring Lab throughout the course has been really valuable.
As I have already been coaching for a few years, the information delivered confirmed some of my coaching knowledge and practices as well as expanded on it.
Overall, MNU was great.
I am very impressed with MNU and feel privileged to have found this course and to have been able to complete it.
I really like Martin's style. He has a way of relating to you and making complicated teachings so simple.
I would jump on any course Martin has to offer as I value his outlook and teachings.
After finishing the curriculum, I know that this information is paramount for Personal Trainers.
It makes us better able to achieve great results with our clients. I truly believe the MNU team has covered all angles with the course!
The information provided was so detailed and actually explained nutritional concepts. Everything was backed by science which wasn't the case on other courses I have done.
I really enjoyed the Facebook LIVEs with Martin and the endurance lecture.
Since doing MNU I have picked up several clients that have lost weight and managed to achieve their goals. One of my clients has had such a great mentality change that it has moved her away from the slimming world mentality she had for over 10 years. For me that is better than any goals achieved in terms of body weight.
Without MNU I would never have been able to help her the way I have. Thank you so much as this has definitely been a life-changing course for me.
There was good support available on MNU and the Mentoring Lab was great.
I liked the rounded approach from the facts and figures to how to set up an office.
I can see that years of planning has gone into it and I think everything was covered, there's so many different students across the world all needing different areas so I think MNU did well.
I really like being part of the MNU community, I'm proud to have chosen this course over all the others.
It was a great experience, I have a new passion now that MNU has given me so much confidence!
The Mac-Nutrition Uni course has made nutrition fun with in-depth lectures and mentoring groups for support.
Unlike University courses, I have been able to study at my own pace and was even given the choice to extend the course where needed.
I am currently a personal trainer, and nutrition is an area I have always struggled with in regard to my clients. After MNU however, I now feel confident enough to advise them on their nutrition and habit changes.
Mac-Nutrition Uni has given me tools to help change people's mindsets, and the ability to work with a broad spectrum of people.
Since starting MNU, I have found the confidence to start my own personal training business with an added service of nutrition so I can help my clients on their journey in every aspect.
The main thing I loved about MNU was the way in which information and science were applied to real world situations.
This allowed me to focus on the information that is truly relevant to my future clients and that I will be able to apply from day one.
I don't think there was anything taught in the course that isn't immediately useful. Student support was also excellent and I always felt as though it were available if needed. A highlight overall was realising how much my confidence had grown.
The course is professional, interesting, and relevant and has truly inspired me!
I can not fault anything about MNU. The level of student support is fantastic.
The diabetes & PCOS lectures were the highlights for me. Everything was covered in more detail than I thought it would be and I am very grateful.
One of our pro-boxers has taken my advice with supplements and macronutrients and is now performing and feeling much better whilst training and sparring.
I wouldn't change anything, MNU is the best course I have ever done! It covered everything that I wanted in a nutrition course and more.
The support all the way through from every staff member has been impeccable, which further emphasises the value you get from MNU.
The knowledge is interesting and makes you want to succeed in every aspect. The content was amazing and well explained.
I have done a double degree at Uni and hands down nothing compares to MNU! I also loved the addition of the Mentoring Lab to help me improve in other areas of business.
I absolutely loved listening to Martin's podcast on my morning walk, I felt it was a further addition to my studies.
I absolutely loved all the support, especially from the admin team! COVID-19 had a major financial burden on my year, so MNU were great in allowing me the flexibility to make payments.
MNU has a great level of support, fantastic lectures and excellent content which was all evidence-based.
I love the fact I now have an entire database of research that I can look at and reference if needed in the future.
The lecture material and further reading was all excellent, I now have so much evidence to fall back on and use.
MNU was fantastic! I know so much more about nutrition now and I feel I can do so much with this qualification.
I am delighted I made the decision to do this course. It was hard work but very enjoyable and worthwhile.
The exams were tough but fair, which is a real compliment as I haven't done many courses that manage to achieve this.
MNU is world-class! It was ALL so relevant to my business and clientele. My clients are all women so the PCOS and fat loss lectures were really applicable.
The Student group was great to check in with when I was unsure or didn't completely understand the content.
I loved how the MNU team were always quick to respond with their advice and the Mentoring Lab was a game-changer for content and further learning.
The Lab is definitely an aspect of MNU that I will continue to be involved with!
My highlight is the confidence I feel now! That is why I did the course. Honestly, I loved it all and thought it was worth every dollar spent!
I started a community of amazing women, training them all from my backyard during the first COVID lockdown over a year ago. 12 women quickly turned in 150 and I just secured my first property to house all these incredible women.
Over a year in, the retention rate sits at 98% and I now have a waiting list to get onto the program. All that I learnt on MNU I teach to them! I can't thank MNU enough!
Mac-Nutrition Uni has been unique! I have done other online courses in the past but none have had the same quality of teaching, student support or even relevant applicable knowledge to actually work with people.
I have finished this course with a sense of pride knowing that I now belong to the Mac-Nutrition community and I am confident that with what I have learnt I will be able to help my future clients reach their goals.
I really enjoyed the residentials as this is where I was able to meet my fellow students and tutors. I did my first ever nutrition presentation whilst doing the course and MNU gave me the knowledge and the confidence to do so.
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole year of studying with Mac-Nutrition Uni.
I learned a lot and I'm ready to take on the big bad world.
I feel very content with the process, I never signed up to Mac-Nutrition to just pass a course, I wanted to learn and I definitely did that.
I struggle with time, I have had learning disabilities in the past, and reading and writing can be difficult for me. However, I feel like I am in a better place because of MNU.
After working with MNU, I feel like I have an advantage over other nutritionists and practitioners and the course has given me the tools to do so, thank you MNU!
It is impossible to compare other courses I have done previously to MNU, as it was in a league of its own.
The customer support and student support services were second to none. I have never experienced support that was friendly, helpful and quick to answer any questions or queries that I had.
The lectures are very interesting, with a lot of examples and humour. Other courses are just boring theory that doesn't have an application to real life.
There is nothing on MNU that will not be applied in my business.
Even though the lectures are online, they are extremely interesting and I felt like I was in a real classroom. MNU has satisfied my intellectual hunger, clarified the difference between evidence-based practice and not, and given me the confidence to change my career.
This course was one of the best investments that I have made in life! Thank you for all your care, support and help!
Having done a couple of previous courses, I highly appreciated the weekly release of lectures on MNU, the quizzes that accompany them, and the additional homework, further reading, and resources.
Right from the first lecture, MNU's approach was practical, educational, and it was a lot of fun to be a student.
A highlight for me was being able to apply things that I was learning, as I was learning. Not only thinking about lectures for an exam but looking for ways to use the knowledge practically in my own practice.
Being more confident in my abilities to talk nutrition with my clients, peers, and followers on social media was a highlight for me. I ran a "Not a Diet Challenge" with my clients where we primarily focused on improving their relationship with food, and it was a huge success.
I wouldn't have had the confidence to run this challenge prior to the course.
The student support group was amazing and I appreciated the lecturers emailing us to check with how we are getting on. Any queries were answered quickly and always so helpful.
My personal highlights were the guest lecturers, additional videos and Modules 3 & 5.
MNU has given me so much more confidence in my knowledge of nutrition. I can now understand why it is so well appreciated.
With no previous experience and purely enrolling out of interest, this course has encouraged me to further a career in helping people with their own nutrition journeys. The course was so well put together, particularly the revision and exam period.
Thank you to the MNU team for the course and all the hard work you have put into it, it has made me believe that anything you are passionate about should not be overlooked! I know MNU will continue to do so much more good!
After previously doing PN, I felt hugely let down and I still didn't feel like I had a real qualification. I feel that if I do pass MNU, that I have earned it.
The level of support from the MNU team and fellow students is amazing.
My highlights were speaking to like-minded people and attending the Stephan Guyenet MN LIVE day.
I will certainly continue my MN LIVE day attendances and flying the evidence-based flag.
Mac-Nutrition Uni was the most relevant course I have ever done for my profession!
Since doing MNU, it has given me a clear understanding and evidence-based approach when communicating with my clients.
The lectures were easy to follow and I enjoyed doing the further reading and the homework each week, as they challenged you to put what you had learned into practice. This course has significantly improved my knowledge.
It helped me to become a better coach to successfully help my clients.
Mac-Nutrition Uni is absolutely amazing and in a league of its own.
The whole course has been a highlight and the level of care and student support is incomparable. The learning was so entertaining and engaging; not once was I dreading a lecture.
MNU has been the nutritional thread to my bow I've been looking for. My confidence has increased 10 fold.
I've been able to engage in discussions with colleagues and peers and help educate which has been fantastic.
For anyone passionate about nutrition, you should invest in yourself and take this course; it has been the best investment I've made in my 10 years as a coach.
MNU exceeded my expectations on many levels and I feel incredibly prepared to work with a variety of clients because of this course!
I genuinely looked forward to the lectures every week and applying new information to my clients.
Signing up to MNU was a significant financial investment for me but I definitely feel like I got well beyond my money’s worth.
I appreciated how Martin and the team truly love what they do. The support from the student group and Mentoring Lab was invaluable.
It's been an honour to complete MNU, and I will miss the weekly lectures!
MNU is by far the best course I have ever done.
The setup of the course, the way the homework gives you the chance to practice each element and get your head around information, and the support you receive - MNU couldn't be better in my opinion.
I found the whole course interesting, but in particular, conceptualising energy balance brought it all to life.
Everything taught was necessary; I have taken several elements into my business already such as purchasing calipers, along with the key information I have passed on to clients. I am now more precise with giving clients calorie and macro goals.
I would recommend MNU to anyone that is wanting to further their career as a trainer or nutritionist.
MNU is simply excellent in all areas.
Very challenging intellectually but the learning environment is great!
I've come away with a total change in my thought process of where to start with most clients.
Since MNU I referred a patient to a psychologist due to a suspected eating disorder.
I never would have known what to do in the past and certainly would not have recognized it as an eating disorder.
She was so grateful and thanked me profusely for helping, even though it wasn't through dietary advice.
The online support provided is great, and unlike many online courses, you always know where to go to ask questions.
My favourite part of the course was Module 6. I coach my daughter, who competes in bikini fitness, and this course has provided me with plenty of new valuable information to help me with this.
MNU was a great course with great teaching and interesting external tutors. :)
MNU is in a league of its own.
The course content and support has everything you need to better yourself as an individual and as a business.
Unlike other courses out there, not only are you given the most up-to-date nutrition information but you are also given the opportunity to learn how to take your profession to the next level and learn what makes a good practitioner.
I loved learning about specific topics like PCOS, misconceptions in the fitness industry, and the jokes/innuendos made by Martin!
MNU exceeded any expectations that I had.
The level of support from tutors, and the knowledge that I gained, gave me so much confidence to help others.
I loved Module 4 (Practical Nutrition Support) because the theory and information got translated into practical terms - this was when I really started to get excited about building a nutrition business and helping others.
A client reached out to me from Istanbul who has PCOS because I spoke openly about my experience and what I have learnt via MNU. She said "I cannot describe the relief I had after we decided to work together. So good to be in professional hands." - so that is cool and all down to MNU!
The lectures were very engaging and I really enjoyed getting to meet everyone on the Case Study Residential Day. I'm so pleased I managed to get a space on MNU, it provided a lot of value.
The level of detail on MNU and explanations into each subject was great.
There was enough detail to fully understand the subject without loads of additional information that overcomplicates it (I have experienced this with other courses & it made me feel out of my depth).
MNU included information about the science, but also how to practically apply this to real-life situations, which was priceless.
A highlight for me was the bodybuilding lecture, this is an area I am particularly interested in working in. I have absolutely loved the course, the knowledge I now have is invaluable.
I am so excited to start working with more clients and help change more lives.
Mac-Nutrition Uni is above any other nutrition course I have completed or enquired about.
The information and support provided is second to none.
I am so grateful for the course MNU has provided me with and would 100% advise others looking for a Nutrition course to come to MNU.
Because of MNU, I'm now taking a huge step to work with my passion day in and day out.
Without this course, I would never have had the confidence or education to do so.
Not only was I provided with theory on MNU, but also real-life applications and thought-provoking questions that challenged my previous biases to improve my all-round practice.
It also allowed me to start thinking for myself more around research, the evidence, and not just taking engrained beliefs in the industry as standard.
MNU has given me much more confidence in my understanding and equipped me to go away and find answers in a better and reliable way.
The MNU community gave me the opportunity to network with other like-minded individuals across a variety of industries.
MNU has 100% improved my communication skills with motivational interviewing to get the salient details from the top. This has translated into how confident and aligned my clients and myself are when embarking on a "journey" together.
The ability to educate and empower clients has spilled over into further referrals for new clients.
Mac-Nutrition Uni is next level compared to previous courses I have done. Any questions asked in the Student group were answered in great detail and I have gained knowledge with every lecture, which has improved my work as a PT and has helped me to get clients better results.
I loved the whole course and found it very enjoyable but my highlights were Modules 3 and 4.
A friend of mine asked me to help her with her training and nutrition to reach her target weight for her wedding day. With lessons learnt from Mac-Nutrition Uni, we were able to reach her target weight whilst still enjoying socialising. This made me feel happy as a new PT that I could help clients achieve their results.
As daunting as nutrition can be, MNU has broken the subject down into learnable modules that never overwhelmed me and the confidence I have gained from the course will stay with me for a very long time.
I can wholeheartedly say that Mac-Nutrition Uni is the most meaningful course I have ever done. ALL of the content on this course is extremely useful and relevant, unlike any college course I have done.
MNU offers next-level student support, especially to career changers like me.
There was always someone on hand that I could ask a question to or get some clarification on a topic. The excel workbooks provided are amazing and I will definitely be using them too.
What I loved most about the course is the tools and top-quality resources and knowledge provided to help me change my career. Hands down this is the best course I have ever done.
Thank you, Martin and everyone at MNU. If Carlsberg did a Nutrition course... Best in the business!
My personal highlight was applying things I learnt to myself, especially the ergogenic aids. They were really cool and I feel improved my performance as a runner and a hurler. I am excited to use these with some of my clients.
I'm a career changer, so this course set me up to be an amazing nutritionist. I have really gained confidence in myself to present the material to clients and I now finally believe I'm worth what I charge.
I took on a client to test the skills and knowledge that I had gained from MNU. She has lost 25 pounds so far and doesn't feel like she's struggling to lose weight for the first time ever. MNU gave me the tools to help her achieve her goals and keep her mental health intact.
Thank you for providing a course that prepares the students to change people's lives. I couldn't be more proud of myself for completing the program and gaining the knowledge to start an entirely new career in nutrition.
Keira-Leanne Redmond Chase
MNU is 110% better than the other nutrition course I previously completed, the support was next level. The content was top-notch and so applicable to my job as a coach.
It was not your typical course where it's all very serious and boring, instead it's a perfect balance of knowledge and humour!
My highlight was completing the exams, it was tou
