Nutrition for Peak Performance

The properly fueled and hydrated body is an amazing machine-capable of breaking barriers and beating out the best in competition. Through a combination of cutting edge research, science, and a comprehensive needs-analysis, Barbara Lewin RDN, CSSD, LDN will help you improve your endurance, speed, agility, and energy.

The key to improving your performance is to find the weak link. What's holding you back? Are you tired between training sessions? Do you recover slowly? Are you looking to reduce your body fat? Improving energy and performance means looking at the big picture. There is no one single nutrition program for the endurance athlete-not even for the same sport and position.

There are many factors that are evaluated when I work with an athlete. First of all it's important to have a program that's realistic and that fits your lifestyle. Whether you're competing or training off-season, the length and intensity of the sport and unique health situations will also determine your nutritional requirements. The program is then customized to meet the needs of your body and the demands of your sport.

Just as the finely tuned engine runs at its best with high-octane fuel, I teach the athlete how to maximize performance with nutrition, and help them understand how their body can perform and recover most effectively. No matter how well you train-your body is limited by certain key factors which can be optimized with a high performance nutrition program designed and customized specifically for your needs and goals.
