Sports Nutrition-Recovering for Optimal Performance
Are you feeling tired or lethargic in your training? Are you unsure what to eat and when? Are you confused with all of the information surrounding sports nutrition? Ever wonder if carbohydrate loading really works?
We invite you to join Becky Hellerstein, a registered Dietitian, to explore how to optimize your performance with nutrition. Join us for this FREE workshop on Monday, October 24th at 6 pm. The workshop, the first of a 3 part series, will focus on recovery nutrition, specifically:
What is recovery nutrition?
Where is the science?
What/when to eat?
How will this help my performance?
We’ve all been through it: what to eat, when to eat it and how much to eat. And there is always more than one answer. Take this opportunity to hear about and learn more about the science and application of recovery nutrition from an expert in the field.
PowerBar will be providing sample recovery products and discussing how to utilize them in your training.
See you Monday!
