Description

Topic: Nutrition for Sporting Performance

Did you know we make upwards of 200 food related decisions every day? Gary’s workshop will help identify the key factors an athlete also needs to consider when making food related decisions in their day to day life. Taking on board these issues will help to ensure athletes are making the most of their diet to support their sporting aspirations. Rest assured, it’s not about being perfect, it’s making wise food & fluid related choices when you have to. This can be especially so for meals and snacks taken before, during and after exercise. Gary will also take the time to make registrants aware of a range of other excellent resources to provide guidance on their sports nutrition needs.
