About This Course
Want to feel and perform better when doing exercise and events? If you are doing recreational or competitive running, triathlon, cycling or sport, our workshop will help you.
Knowing what and when to eat and training smarter rather than harder can make all the difference to performance, enjoyment, injuries and weight management. This information is different depending on what activity you do it for and the length of events and competitions. We outline what vitamins, minerals, types of food do you need and which exercises and stretches really make a difference.
This workshop will cut through the myths and present the facts in a fun, informative and practical session, exploring how both diet and strength training will help you boost performance, improve physical and mental wellbeing and reach your goals.
