Keeping you moving

Nutrition and dietetics

In the world of athletic performance, milliseconds or centimetres can be the difference between a gold or silver medal, qualification or waiting another year to make a team. There is no wonder then that athletes are always in search of the edge over the competition, for that 1-2% increase in performance. Whether you are an elite athlete, a weekend warrior, a junior looking to move into senior sport or a corporate executive looking to maximise your energy, a sports dietitian can help you reach your best.

Sports dietitians are experts in optimising your performance through a range of nutritional and lifestyle strategies. Here are just some of the specific ways a sports dietitian can help you:

  • Team sport athletes wanting to improve performance.
  • Endurance athletes looking to develop a race plan.
  • Helping athletes make weight for weight class sports (e.g. boxing, powerlifting/weightlifting).
  • Athletes looking to gain muscle and/or body size.
  • Body composition analysis through skin folds (ISAK Accredited).
  • Managing health conditions with your training, including diabetes, PCOS, IBS/IBD etc.
