Course Overview

Creatine, whey powder, branched chain amino acid capsules, pre-workout drink mix booster ... your consultation table is covered in products brought in by an athlete who wonders whether he needs supplements to improve his performance. What do you tell him? Without a thorough understanding of the process by which energy is produced by the body and the nutrients required to fuel those systems, it‘s difficult to separate the hype from fact when it comes to diets for athletes and use of dietary supplements. All athletes, whether amateur or elite, want a best performance. For the elite athlete, it can be the difference between success and failure. For the amateur or "weekend warrior" it can mean feeling good and recovering quickly after exercise or an event. This course provides the information about sports nutrition that is necessary to educate any athlete to improve performance and recover quickly while avoiding harmful behaviors.
