Are you looking for a way optimise your performance?
Perhaps you are struggling to recover effectively from training, or you are experiencing more injuries than you used to?
Did you know that nutrition plays one of the most crucial roles in your health and thus your ability to train and recover effectively?
The impact of nutrition in sport is often underestimated, but ultimately it creates the foundation for the athletes ability to make energy, recover from and adapt from training and its environment.
Our cells rely upon vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats and carbohydrates to function correctly, thus our nutrition is crucial in how well these cells function. By ensuring that we are supplying the body with adequate levels of these nutrients, the cells, tissue, organs and therefore the athlete can function optimally.
Because of the high levels of training in the athlete, nutrient demands are higher than most individuals. Whilst eating the right foods to ensure an optimal intake of macronutrients like proteins, fats and carbohydrates and also micronutrients like vitamins and minerals makes up a foundation of the athletes food intake, there are many other areas of nutrition and the athletes lifestyle that should be considered to ensure optimal results.
Most athletes want to train harder to gain the competitive advantage, but your training and results can only be as good as your recovery. Poor or inadequate recovery will lead to a gradual reduction or plateau in your results, leaving you feeling frustrated.
Correct eating, lifestyle habits and nutrient timing allow us to support the recovery phase between training to allow you to train at your full potential.
Many athletes also suffer with immune insufficiencies that will ultimately lead to missing training sessions or poor performance during training. By supporting the body with the correct nutrition we are better able to support the immune system and take the stress off the body, allowing for more consistent training and thus progression of results.
I saw Steve Grant, and he was the first person to give me a scientific and understandable diagnosis based on a subjective assessment, backed up by specific blood tests and confirmed by specific stool tests. He was able to manipulate my nutrition and supplementation plan to ensure my body was getting the nutrients it needed to function optimally both physically and mentally.
