Athletes are inundated with nutrition information from various, and often
unreliable, sources on a daily basis. Unfortunately, this impressionable
population is not always able to discern credible advice from clever marketing.
The desire to be better, stronger and faster continues to fuel this appetite for
information. Moreover, proper nutrition and hydration are critical for optimal
performance and for the health and safety of the individual. Professionals
working with athletes and active individuals must be equipped with practical,
reliable information in order to provide appropriate nutritional guidance.
This one-day seminar will provide you with the latest sports nutrition
information to help your clients achieve their performance goals. You will sort
fact from fiction as it relates to performance nutrition. Attendees will examine
the latest research regarding meal planning and nutrition supplementation for
active individuals, including those who are vegetarians, those who are pregnant,
children, adolescents and other special populations. This comprehensive seminar
will equip you with valuable information to help your clients, whether they are
weekend warriors or world-class athletes, safely and effectively achieve their
goals of getting "bigger, stronger and faster." Real-life case studies will be
reviewed so that you can begin to put information into action the very next day.
