Sports Nutrition is the study and practice of nutrition and diet as it relates to athletic performance. It is concerned with the type and quantity of fluid and food taken by an athlete, and deals with nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, supplements and organic substances such as carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
Just as a car runs best with a full tank of gas, your body needs the right kind of fuel from food. A balance of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, minerals, vitamins, and water will give your body what it needs for peak performance. Whether you are a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, nutrition is fundamental to your athletic performance. The right diet will optimise your energy levels and help your body recover more effectively. Not only is the type of food important for sports nutrition but the times we eat throughout the day also has an impact on our performance levels and our bodies ability to recover after exercising.
Every athlete responds differently to training, recovery, environmental factors and diet and therefore requires an individual approach. Our nutrition expert monitors all these factors closely and work with athletes and their coaches to optimise performance and recovery within a framework that also promotes long-term health. We ensure that you receive a tailored plan, customised to your specific lifestyle, exercise and recovery requirements allowing you to gain maximum benefit in a practical, achievable and sustainable way.
