The Nutrition Business Growth Programme is Zest4life’s signature, fully supported business mentoring programme, and is our most popular programme. 

You have spent time and money becoming qualified to work in this exciting profession and now is the time to learn exactly how to build a successful and commercially viable business.


If you have never started a business before, it can be daunting and overwhelming. In much the same way as you learnt from Nutrition experts to gain your qualification, it is wise to invest in learning from Nutrition Business experts on how to build a profitable practice, rather than leaving it to chance. 


Our Business Growth Programme includes everything you need to build a really successful and commercially viable practice that reflects who you want to work with and how you want to practice.

Health Coach Training

It can be really difficult to change habits long-term, lifestyle and nutrition habits in particular can often be deeply entrenched, linked to many different emotions and other hidden barriers to success. You will be trained to combine nutrition with coaching as part of your programme with us, this enables you to really stand out from others;  when you're trained in health coaching, you'll be able to help clients unlock their true potential, experience real transformation, and access a new level of motivation to reach their goals.  This can be one of the most transformative trainings you can take part in for your own benefit and that of your clients too.

Zest4life nutritionist

Jennifer Stenfelt

" I've already sold 3 programmes in my first week in August, hitting my financial target for the month!"

" I have really enjoyed my first year with Zest and feel I have grown in many ways including confidence, technical ability, and as a practitioner in general.  I honestly don't think I would have survived 2020 as an NT without Zest.  You all made a huge difference to my life and kept me motivated,  encouraging me and equipping me with the skills to get online, learn how to run Zoom sessions, get involved in the Community Challenge, which really raised my profile locally and again, boosted my confidence.  In a year when I could have easily given up, I positively thrived - so a huge thank you to you all.  You really are all very wonderful people and I feel very blessed and proud to be part of the Zest team.


I need to kick start my motivation again now January is here and start promoting myself on social media once more.  I know Zest's wonderful resources will help me with this."
