I am a success story for Paleo nutrition as far as weight loss is concerned, recently I have been helping a friend lose weight by teaching them about proper eating habbits and why, and assisting with getting them more active. Its been a few months and they have made great gains. This past weekend my friend said that I should look into doing this on the side as a way to make supplemental income while also helping people.
I know a lot of people that dont have the self discipline to stick to meal plans, go to the gym alone or stick to a plan, I honestly believe I can help these people and I want to.
I know I cant legally just put an ad in the paper or in the lobby of my building etc offering my services to help. So what I want to know is what do I need to have in order to start this up on the side? Do you need nutrition certs or personal trainer certs? I dont plan on putting on a routine like regular trainers as the people I would be helping would be people with obvious weight issues who need more attentive care and nutrition advice, but if im advocating these people eat contrary to the governments recommendation and im taking them out to get active what do I do to ensure myself and my client would be safe?
Any information would be great, im based in Canada so if anyone knows specifics for Canada thats even better.
