  2. Qualifications. We hold the following professional qualifications and certifications: M.S. in Kinesiology and Applied Physiology, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (C.S.C.S), Precision Nutrition Level 1 Coach (PNL1) and Certified CrossFit Trainer (CCFT).

  3. Scope of Practice. The scope of our practice is as follows: 

  1. Here is what we will be doing together:

    1. Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists (CSCSs) are professionals who apply scientific knowledge to train athletes to improve athletic performance. They conduct sport-specific testing sessions, design and implement safe and effective strength training and conditioning programs, and provide nutrition and injury prevention guidance. Recognizing that their area of expertise is separate and distinct, CSCSs consult with and refer athletes to other professionals when appropriate.

  1. Precision Nutrition Level 1 Coaches (PNL1) are allowed to make nutrition recommendations to otherwise healthy clients. So, even without the PN Nutrition Certification, most folks can make nutrition recommendations. What we’re offering is a much better system for making those recommendations.

  1. Here is what we will not be doing together: 

    1. As we hold no specific Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) Certification, we will not be giving nutrition advice to treat or cure disease. 

  1. Use License. If Paul Buono has materials on the Site that you can download, permission is granted to download copies of the materials for personal, non-commercial viewing only. This is the grant of a license, not a transfer of title, and under this license, you may not:
