Today, awareness of the importance of healthy living has increased. In turn, inactive lifestyles are growing, and the problems they cause are becoming an increasing burden on our society. We respond to this challenge by sharing information and educating on health-promoting physical activity habits, lifestyle habits such as the importance of adequate sleep, rest, and recovery, and the effects of a health-promoting diet on well-being and health. We also master the most advanced coaching methods for elite fitness and bodybuilding athletes.

The IFBB Nordic Academy is responsible for training Nordic fitness and bodybuilding enthusiasts, competitors, and coaches. The online training offered by the IFBB Nordic Academy provides fitness and bodybuilding enthusiasts, athletes, and coaches with an inspiring and meaningful way to learn about health promotion, body composition, and fitness lifestyle, and, most importantly, coaching fitness and bodybuilding athletes. All education courses are internationally recognized, and an international certificate of completion is always awarded.
