A vital role in sports performance
Nutrition is a key aspect for both an athlete’s health and their sports performance. Our sports nutrition support aims to educate athletes and teams to ensure that they are well fuelled for training sessions, recovering well afterwards and staying healthy.
We translate scientific information into easy to understand, practical advice through a variety of media which we share with athletes and teams. This includes our Instagram page (@ubsportnutrition) which acts as a great resource and engages athletes with support.
Our main focus is to provide athletes with the necessary information and skills to be able to make the right nutrition decisions for both their health and performance. The key priorities of our nutrition support are to:
- Tailor support to the specific needs of individual athletes and teams, using a food-first approach.
- Upskill athletes to give them the necessary skills for their future careers as they transition from a junior level to a senior level.
- Integrate support as part of a multi-disciplinary team approach with the athlete/team at the centre.
