YOU SPEND HOURS DESIGNING THE TRAINING PROGRAMS FOR YOUR ATHLETES. YOU SPEND EVEN MORE TIME COACHING AND SUPERVISING YOUR ATHLETES IN AN EFFORT TO IMPROVE THEIR PERFORMANCE CAPABILITIES. HOWEVER, WE KNOW THAT WITHOUT GOOD NUTRITIONAL PRACTICES, YOUR ATHLETES WILL NEVER DEMONSTRATE OPTIMAL PHYSIOLOGICAL ADAPTATIONS FROM TRAINING. AS A RESULT, WE ASKED OUR PANEL OF COACHES HOW THEY GO ABOUT TRYING TO EDUCATE THEIR ATHLETES ON IMPROVING THEIR NUTRITIONAL STATUS.
