Sports nutrition involves eating the right combinations of food at the right times.

Many questions often arise around sports nutrition:

  • What can I eat to avoid stomach distress?
  • What do I eat before I go to the gym?
  • What is the difference between all the sport and energy bars and drinks?
  • What should I feed my children before their practices and games?

You Can't Exercise Your Way Out of a Bad Diet
Sound nutrition is essential for high quality sport training and competition. Athletic Success depends not only on proper training, but also on adequate nutrition for growth and development and a strong immune system.

Dietary carbohydrate, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals, and water all influence your athletic performance. It is crucial to be aware of your needs for each and ensure that you are meeting those needs. It is also important to have a clear understanding of the possible benefits and harmful side effects of dietary supplements and ergogenic aids used in hopes to improve performance.

Nutrition plays a critical role in maximizing energy, delaying fatigue, rebuilding muscle and preventing dehydration and over-hydration. Whether you are a competitive athlete, a casual exerciser, a fitness enthusiast, or someone who is thinking about getting more exercise, proper nutrition will improve your workout. What you eat before, during and after exercise is critical, and your overall diet needs to be balanced and healthy for consistent results. Let us help you fuel your body so you can feel your best and perform at your optimal potential.
