HOW I CAN HELP YOU
Sport and exercise nutrition
In order to sustain your training, achieve better performance, and recover optimally, good nutrition is EXTREMELY important. However, more importantly good nutrition helps to maintain health. As they say ‘health fuels performance’. Together, the client and Ann-Marie look at ways in which training, performance and recovery can be optimised. As an athlete or recreational athlete we can look at:
- Macronutrient periodisation (Carbohydrate, Protein, Fat)
- Event build up nutrition
- During event food
- Recovery nutrition
- Supplement use
Ann-Marie can help you with your body composition goals (e.g. lose fat, gain muscle), taking the guess work out of your nutrition. She will help you to understand how to eat to achieve your ideal physique without compromising muscle mass and whilst still being able to enjoy tasty food. Ann-Marie’s philosophy is around education, so that by the end of your time working with her you should really be able to understand what your body needs and how to implement this in everyday life going forward.
Perhaps you want to lose weight, improve your health, improve energy levels or you are a vegetarian or vegan and would like to ensure that you are getting the nutrition that you need, one-to-one consultations allow the focus to be on your individuals needs. You will go away with some actionable goals and your progress will be reviewed 4 weeks later with a follow-up consultation. This provides you with the opportunity to make any necessary changes in order to make the most progress, to have accountability, support and education to help you to overcome any challenges.
