Nutrition is of the highest importance for athletes. We offer nutritional log analysis to screen everything an athlete is eating throughout the day. If, for example, an athlete is drinking a lot of soda then that athlete has excessive sugar and carbonation levels that can negatively impact their athletic performance. In order for athletes to excel at a higher level there needs to be a change to their diet. There are a lot of suggestions out there- high protein this, high carbohydrates that, low fat this- but it is really about each athlete individually. Athletes do not have to completely remove any food that they enjoy, but they need to be making smart choices and think about how the food can fuel or harm their success.
Only 20% of an athletes success can be attributed to their time spent training. The 80% that is in the athlete's hands that needs to be addressed is the nutrition and recovery. If we do not address the nutrition and recovery that each athlete requires then they will not reach their optimal level. Training includes more than liting weights and jumping hurdles, it includes proper nutrition, sleep, and recovery and here at Proformance we want to emphasize the entire process to ensure the best chance for success for each of our athletes.
