Performance Nutrition for Team Sports
1-Day Nutrition Workshop (Saturday 5th Dec) in Loughborough
"Become Your Own Nutritionist!"
A good diet will not turn a mediocre athlete into a champion, but a poor diet can turn a champion into a mediocre athlete – Prof. Ron Maughan
Having worked with professional clubs for many years, it is apparent that there is a lack of nutrition education and understanding of nutrition in team sports. Every player, from grass routes to professional, could be a better athlete if they realised the importance of nutrition for performance. From simple strategies such as half-time fuelling and gaining lean muscle mass, through to more advanced and contemporary strategies such as training with low glycogen, there is an area of nutrition that every team sport could benefit from implementing. We want to teach you how to implement these strategies in an easy, practical way in our 1-day performance nutrition workshop for team sports!
WHAT is it and WHO is it for?
This 1-day workshop has been specifically developed to allow anyone involved in team sports e.g. footballers, rugby players, hockey players, basketballers, coaches, sports nutritionists and dietitians, to either 'become their own' performance nutritionist, or to gain a unique insight into delivering practical high end nutrition support to team sport athletes. The workshop is all-encompassing, combining nutrition seminars, lectures and practical workshops giving those that attend not only the theoretical knowledge but also the practical skills & tools to be able to apply personalised nutrition strategies to a range of team sports.
