Sports & Nutrition

Maintaining a healthy and balanced diet is the key to sustain you during your sporting activities, which is why the right nutrition is crucial as it affects performance and endurance.

Before exercising
Prior to your workout (2-4 hours) try to eat a meal with high carbohydrates and some protein while low in fiber or fat, which gives us the energy boost needed to fuel and sustain you through your sports activities.
Fruits are a good and healthy snack to have prior to your workout, along with yoghurt or cottage cheese.
