Whether you are training for your first 5K, working with a trainer to get stronger, a collegiate athlete, or gearing up for your 10th Iron man, as an athlete you are striving to excel.
Athletes are always searching for a better way: the best ratio of carbs/protein/fat intake, the newest supplement, the best training technique, the proper amount of hydration or fuel during their event. Ultimately, athletes are looking for the secret that will make it possible to have the cutting edge on their opponent, or to at least look good while trying. However, the information out there can be confusing and often damaging, sometimes with serious side effects. Even if you are doing everything “right” it may still feel like you aren’t performing to your best. We can help.
