Nutrition is one of the most important components of health and fitness. Many conditions, such as diseases and injuries, fatigue, and ‘overtraining syndrome’ may be the result of suboptimal nutritional habits. We recommend prioritizing nutrition and eating a variety of foods rather than following fad diets. Athletes’ additional requirements focus on nutritional support of training and competition.
There is an athlete in every person! Whether just getting started or already an accomplished athlete, we emphasize training periodization to build and sustain improvements in performance. We provide assessment and guidance in aerobic and anaerobic training, strength training, core stability and injury prevention and treatment.
