Sports Nutrition Program

Nutrition in Sports – Overview

It is well established that what an athlete eats can affect his/her ability to train, recover and compete. What we eat and drink provides us with energy. How we train and the type of sport we choose to compete in places certain energy demands on the body. The amount, composition and timing of food intake can profoundly affect sports performance.

An individual’s needs will vary depending on a multitude of factors – age, genetics, gender, sport, lifestyle. This is where combining bespoke training for weight-loss/performance with a personalised nutrition and lifestyle plan vastly improves client outcomes and satisfaction.

At the most basic level, nutrition is important for athletes because it provides a source of energy required to perform the activity. 

The food we eat impacts on our strength, training, performance and recovery Sports Athletes have different requirements: explosive power, speed, agility, strength, and recovery speed.

All of these factors are heavily influenced by what you eat when you eat and how much you eat. Food is like fuel to your body and if you fuel your body right it will keep you at the optimum level for playing sports.
