Sports Nutrition Birmingham

Sports nutrition is the study and practice of nutrition and diet with regards to improving one’s athletic performance. Whether you are a bodybuilder, a professional athlete, or simply exercising to improve your health, sports nutrition plays a key role in optimising the beneficial effects of physical activity.

Nutrition is an essential element of sports training regimens, whether it’s building strength and muscle tone through weightlifting and bodybuilding, or building fitness and endurance through cycling, running, swimming, and rowing. 

Sports nutrition focuses on how to optimise an athlete’s diet, by monitoring and fine-tuning the types and quantities of fluids and foods they consume. Our sports nutritionists can advise on a personalised combination of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, supplements and organic substances that include carbohydrates, proteins and fats.

Making better decisions about your nutrition and hydration can result in improved performance, faster recovery, and injury prevention. Our sports nutrition professionals offer a range of services to support your health and sporting goals. This can range from a daily food diary, to a comprehensive food and nutrition plan for training and competitions.

Sports Psychology & Motivation

Sports psychology harnesses the rigour of science to investigate how people perceive the world, structure their thinking, solve problems and interact with others, set against the context of sport and exercise. 

Our sports psychologists work with professional athletes and coaches to improve their performance, and to increase their motivation and focus. They also help athletes to cope with the intense pressure that comes from competition, as well as helping them to recover from injuries. 

But sports psychologists do not just work with elite and professional athletes. They also help regular people learn how to enjoy sports, and can help those who find sticking with an exercise programme difficult to improve their self-discipline.

Athletic Performance Coaching

Sports coaches help people participating in sports to work towards achieving their full potential. They support professional sportspeople, sports teams, community teams or school groups, working with them closely to improve performance. 

Sports coaches bring out ability by identifying needs, and planning and implementing suitable training programmes. 

Whatever the context, coaching involves developing a participant’s physical and psychological fitness, and providing the best possible practical conditions in order to maximise their performance potential. 

This same strategy can be adapted for any aspect of human performance, whether this is sport, business or academic study.
