There is no doubt that nutrition plays a vital role in optimizing athletic performance and training quality. Nutrition interacts with all aspects of the athletes training therefore a well fueled athlete will be better positioned to achieve full genetic potential.

Quality nutrition will:
- help maximize exercise performance (i.e. improve mean power output), by providing the fluids, nutrients and fuels required during high intensity training
- decrease recovery time from strenuous physical activity

They sift through the overwhelming amount of sports nutrition information to provide up to date, accurate information to athletes and coaches on the diligent use of supplements and their risk/benefits as well as what works for training, competition and recovery. Approaches to optimizing sport nutrition include detailed individual needs assessment, individual nutrition plans, menu planning, recipe provision, supermarket tours and meal preparation techniques where necessary.
