Event Details

IMPORTANT:  The Whole9 Foundations of Nutrition Workshop is a mandatory prerequisite for attendance at a Trainer’s Workshop.  Please see "Workshop Details" below for more information.


Our half-day Trainer’s Workshop will be an advanced topic event for those trainers, coaches and gym owners who have already attended our Foundations of Nutrition Workshop. Our goal is to help those in a leadership role develop their nutritional coaching abilities, based on our principles, templates and experience.

During the Trainer’s Workshop, Whole9 will be covering the following topics:

1. Introduction:

  • “But I’m just here to exercise” – how to impress upon your clients the importance of good nutrition
  • Your clients’ health and fitness goals – getting their mindset, focus and habits right from the start
  • Your role as not only a fitness trainer, but a leader and mentor.

2. Basic Concepts:

  • Practice explaining our foundational nutrition concepts (metabolism, inflammation, food choices) in a way your clients can understand
  • How to translate super-science-y material into an easy-to-implement action plan for all your clients

3. Nutrition Evaluation Skills:

  • A discussion of Whole9’s new MealSimple™ guide
  • How we review our clients’ nutritional logs
  • A group review of sample food logs
  • Spotting common errors, flaws and patterns in your clients’ daily nutrition

4. Sustainability:

  • How to incorporate ongoing nutrition focus in your gym
  • The role of challenges, seminars and workshops
  • Avoiding common (but often seen) errors in making nutrition a sustainable, gym-wide practice

Workshop Details:

Trainer’s Workshops run a half day in length, and are limited to 30 people to ensure all attendees receive personalized attention. Note, the Whole9 Foundations of Nutrition Workshop is a mandatory prerequisite for attendance at a Trainer’s Workshop. (Sorry, but a CrossFit Nutrition Certification or attendance at another nutrition seminar is not an acceptable substitute.)

You do not have to be a certified trainer to register. We welcome anyone who wants a better understanding of how to teach fundamental nutritional concepts to friends, family members and future clients.

We ask that all trainers bring one representative day of a nutrition log – a client’s, a friends or your own – for analysis. Logs can be prepared in whatever format is easiest (FitDay, Daily Plate, Excel document, hand-written, etc.) Trainers should bring one printed copy of their log to the workshop event.

Founded in 2009 by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig, Whole9 is a community focused on health, fitness, balance and sanity, all built on a foundation of real food and healthy nutritional habits.

We have four U.S. seminar teams traveling all across the country, sharing our Good Food word. We also have a team in Canada and another in the South Pacific (Australia, New Zealand, and the surrounding area).

We talk a lot about nutrition on our site and in these seminars, but that’s just one aspect of our program. The ‘9’ in Whole9 comes from these 9 factors, which we believe are all important for optimal health.  Our 9 Blog features all of our articles, addressing various aspects of each of these factors (and then some).

In addition, we are the home of the original Whole30® program (as featured in the Hartwig's New York Times bestselling book, It Starts With Food), which has been quietly changing the lives of tens of thousands of people since April 2009. 

We invite you to learn more about Whole9 and our Whole30 program. Start here.
