Andrew Herrick, PhD, CHES

The best conditioning programs and technical instruction are beneficial only if the body’s engine is properly fueled and ready to operate at peak efficiency.  Far beyond the typical food pyramid formula, this course presents advanced nutritional concepts, which include: a) Timing of meals, fluid, and training to maintain ideal energy balance throughout each day, b) Digesting optimal ratios and quantities of energy nutrients, vitamins, and minerals, c) Consuming the right amount of fluid and electrolytes to avoid dehydration and hyper-hydration, d) Identifying and maintaining a body composition capable of maximal power output with minimal excess weight for specific sports, e) Understanding the effects of travel, high altitude, and age on nutritional needs and performance.
