Sports nutrition

Elite athlete

Many factors contribute to success in sport, such as talent, the quality of training and resistance to injury. But the margin between victory and non-achievement can be incredibly small.

This is an area where small factors really make vital difference and nutrition is a key element in the chain of significant factors.

DEHYDRATION

DEHYDRATION

A drinking plan, tailored to individual’s needs, prevents dehydration, and diminishes the feeling of fatigue, as well as maintaining and improving the athlete’s performance.

EXHAUSTION

EXHAUSTION

An adequate nutritional and energy intake at the appropriate time, based on the athlete’s needs, delays the onset of fatigue and prevents exhaustion.

Amongst others, the type of protein intake and consuming the appropriate amount at the right time is significant for an efficient restoration of body tissues and their adaptation to training.

BODY MASS MANAGEMENT

BODY MASS MANAGEMENT

Devising a suitable eating strategy, we take into account the type, intensity and duration of the training sessions along with the period (pre-, in- or off-season) the athlete is at. In this way, his/her performance and health are not jeopardized.

Nutritional support adjusted to an individual and to the requirements of his/her sports activity, enables elite athletes to achieve an optimal sports performance, and to recover effectively as well as adapting well to training stimulations. It protects their health and reduces the risk of injury.

This nutritional support is offered individually, as an athlete’s needs depend on their individual nutritional and health status as well as depending on the period (pre-, in- or off-season) the athlete is at.  

Athletes are treated in a comprehensive way, as a whole. Thereby we cooperate with coaches, sports doctors, psychologists, psychotherapists and other experts. In this way we help you maximize your performance and achieve the optimal results.

We offer counselling for:

  • Eating strategies before, during and after exercise in different training periods: the type and quantity of food at the appropriate time is important:
    • carbohydrates for training and regeneration
    • carbohydrates for competition 
    • proteins for optimal regeneration and adaptation to training
  • Drinking strategies: types of fluids, their amount and timing of intake
    • assessment of athlete’s hydration state and definition of suitable fluids and electrolytes
  • Body composition alterations: muscle mass gain, fat mass reduction
  • Body mass management: reduction and gain of body mass
  • Nutritional supplements and sports foods
  • Nutrition during competitions
  • Nutrition while travelling
