How You Can Benefit From Working With A Sports Nutrition & Performance Specialist

Learn what & when to eat

If you’re an athlete, someone who aspires to improve his or her own athletic performance, or just a person who is physically active, it’s not only crucial to know what to eat, but more importantly, when to eat. Frequently, learning to do so can be the difference between success and lack thereof.

Therefore, our athletic nutritionist can provide valuable education, tools and guidance, so you can avoid self-sabotage. As a result, you will be in a better position to reach your goal(s), be it weight or fat loss, muscle growth or improved fitness and sports performance.

Receive a meal plan tailored to your athletic needs

Because we are all made differently and we each have our own individualized fitness goals, it’s vital that the nutrition plan we follow is customized to your specific sport or activity.

In other words, it must be tailored to your activity levels, goals, food preferences, budget, religious restrictions and overall lifestyle.

For this reason, the meal plans that we co-create offer structure along with flexibility to fit your needs. Doing so ensures that you’re able to stick to your meal plan in the long-term, and thus, reach your fitness goal(s).

Lose or gain weight

For well over 15 years, our nutrition consultants have helped thousands of clients with weight loss.

Accordingly, our sports nutrition dietitians have extensive training and experience in helping clients with healthy, sustainable weight loss as well as healthy weight gain.

In short, we take a comprehensive look at weight loss and weight gain, carefully analyzing all the contributing factors. Throughout the process, our practitioners will guide, support and encourage you while you make adjustments to your eating habits.

Improve body composition & build muscle

Furthermore, our sports performance & fitness specialists can help you bulk up naturally and/or improve your body composition.

Our sports nutritionist can certainly guide you in doing so in a healthy, nutritionally-balanced and effective way.

With a strong background in nutrition science as it relates to sports performance, and as a competing mixed martial artist himself, he no doubt understands the demands of high level athletic performance.

Increase strength

With their multi-disciplinary backgrounds, our sports nutritionists and dietitians will provide you with valuable insight that supplements your strength training program at your local gym or fitness centre.

As a client of our nutrition service, you will receive the latest evidence-based nutrition information, useful tools and practical tips from qualified nutrition experts. After all, our goal is to help you get leaner, stronger and healthier.

Undoubtedly, a sports nutritionist can help to maximize athletic performance and increase the chances of getting the desired results.

Boost energy, stamina & endurance

You can also consult a sports nutritionist to help you avoid energy dips and slumps throughout the day or during workouts, build stamina and increase endurance–key components to better athletic performance.

In addition, you can discover various ways to overcome plateaus, particularly with weight loss or muscle gain. Surely, learning to fuel your body right sets the stage for the right results.

Improve metabolic health

Without a doubt, poor metabolic health can impact your well-being in a number of ways.

Certainly, it can lead to the development of heart disease, diabetes and stroke. It, too, can result in unhealthy weight gain and many associated complications. It can even seriously compromise athletic performance, leading to frustration and disappointment.

As a result, a healthy metabolism is interlinked with nutrition and exercise–something that cannot be overlooked when engaged in physical training.

Certainly, our practitioners can show you ways to boost your metabolism. Ultimately, doing so can result in a healthy weight, better absorption of nutrients, balanced blood sugar, increased energy levels and much more.

Reduce the risk of injury

Additionally, our sports nutritionist team can help you develop and follow a workout meal plan or meal plan for athletes to reduce the risk of various sports-related injuries.

Through an optimization of macronutrients, hydration, proper meal timing, supplementation and effective recovery methods, our athletic nutritionist is well-equipped to assist you in injury prevention.

Doing so will allow you to avoid setbacks associated with injuries while maximizing your performance at the gym or on the sporting field.

Heighten concentration

Unquestionably, a nutritionally-balanced diet can go a long way in sustaining brain health, improving alertness and concentration.

An often misunderstood mental factor, mental sharpness and clarity have an enormous impact on sports performance at any level.

Whether you take part in team or individual sports, it is critically important to nourish the brain so it can thrive.

Consequently, working with sports nutrition experts can ensure you are consuming foods in your meal plan that boost brain health, promoting razor sharp focus.

Learn more about sports supplements

Our sports nutrition experts have specialized training with various dietary supplements, including those designed for exercise and athletic performance.

Without a doubt, separating fact from false claims regarding the purported benefits of many supplements can be a daunting task. And this is where we come in.

With this in mind, we will provide you with the latest evidence-based nutritional science and help you choose supplements that are right for you.
