SENR Membership

The Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENR)

The Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENR) is a nationally recognised quality mark for those who work in sports and exercise nutrition.

The register is a world renowned voluntary entity designed to accredit suitably qualified and experienced individuals who have the competency to work autonomously as a sport and exercise nutritionist with performance oriented athletes, as well as those participating in physical activity, sport and exercise for health.

Being on the Register

The register is expected to help in:

  • public protection, namely the sport and performance focused exercising community;
  • setting, protection and promotion of standards of services and education;
  • professional development of individuals;
  • developing the profession and its knowledge base.

The SENR outlines professional standards and competencies for sport and exercise nutritionists. It guides the development of sport and exercise nutrition curriculum, provides career development pathways for aspiring sport and exercise nutritionists and promotes the recognition of registered individuals as professionals within a valued specialism.
