Mastery of the continuum is best achieved sequentially. To optimize sports specific refinement, it’s important to understand and develop the preliminary stages: foundation components of fitness and sports foundational training.

It is near impossible to “out-train” poor nutrition. The performance of, and recovery from sporting activity can be enhanced by well-chosen nutrition strategies. With nutrition assessments, counseling, sports team presentation and meal planning, we aim to alter default behavior through education and food availability. Our staff will provide insight and guidance through evidenced-based dietetics practice to support and enhance student’s ability to improve lifetime wellness, learn to prevent chronic disease and enhance performance academically and athletically. After team workouts, athletes have access to sports nutrition drinks that complement both muscular development (Core Power) and recovery through essential nutrients (Body Armor).
