Proper nutrition is vital to good health, and essential to maximizing athletic performance. Phase IV wants you to be the healthiest you can be by making the foods you eat work to positively impact your fitness. As athletes, we all know the nutrients we deliver through food are our bodies’ building blocks, but which are the best foods to eat and when to maximize your performance?
If you visit any bookstore you will find shelves full of different diet ideologies. The reality is what works best for one person won’t typically work for another. At Phase IV, Registered Dieticians with a focus in Sports Nutrition will provide the answers that are right for you. We have deep expertise in managing the intricate interactions between your diet, specific sport, training regiment, competition event calendar, work schedule, age, medication, genetics, possible disease, etc. Translating and applying scientifically accurate solutions to your nutritional needs are imperative to attaining your athletic and life goals.
We decipher the science to help you determine what is most essential and suitable to your specific needs, and then translate that knowledge into a practical and individualized strategic Sports Nutrition plan easily incorporated into your training regiment and lifestyle.
The science is clear- nutrition has a significant impact on your athletic performance. Phase IV uses scientific evidence to fine-tune your daily nutritional intake as well as your fuel and hydration for before, during, and after your workouts and competitions.
You work out to get faster, stronger, and to last longer. The irony is when you are working out, you are actually breaking down your body. It is the recovery process that strengthens your body to rebuild itself more resiliently so it can handle itself better in that same situation. The foods and fluids you consume provide your body with the ingredients it requires to build itself up.
Our Registered Dietitian will analyze your macronutrient (calories, carbohydrates, fat, and protein) and micronutrient (vitamins & minerals) intake and then compare it to your basic requirements in accordance with your desired athletic goals. Based on your results, you will receive personalized dietary guidelines specific to your needs, based on your activity level.
Phase IV wants your daily training nutrition to enhance your workout and maximize the time you spend preparing for your race. After a sport specific nutritional assessment, we will discuss your workout nutrition and race day strategies for hydration, nutrition, and electrolyte management. Specific supplements, brands, as well as quantity and detailed personalized race day nutrition protocols can be designed.
