The influence that nutrition has on physical performance and individuals’ body composition is a matter of public knowledge. In fact, we hear about a huge number of professional athletes that owe their increased performance to radical changes in diet.

The ingredients that make up athletes’ diets determine the quality of their movements. When we talk about diet or food in the context of sports, we also make references to athletic supplements and hydration. These are all key components when it comes to increasing or maintaining our physical performance.

In this educational program you will learn about the effects that foods and athletic supplements produce in the body. The objective is for you to optimize the selection of dietary components when it comes time to maximize physical performance.
