Sports Nutrition

Individualized nutrition advice is fundamental to optimal sporting performance. Making some simple nutritional changes can greatly enhance your ability to train hard and recover, which in turn translates into improved sporting performance. This is especially true with endurance athletes. So if you’re serious about your chosen sport, why not make an appointment with our Accredited Sports Dietitians. Having said that, you don’t need to be an athlete to see us. We are happy to assist people of varying fitness levels, from couch potatoes to elite athletes.  

Improved nutrition will:

  • enable you to get the most out of every session
  • optimize your energy levels and make exercise easier and more enjoyable
  • help you to achieve your desired body composition  
  • tone up and/or build muscle
  • help you to recover more quickly 
  • reduce post-exercise muscle soreness
  • improve your immune function so that you can train consistently
