In this hands-on 2-hour presentation, Chrissy Carroll, a Registered Dietitian, will prepare you with the ins and outs of triathlon nutrition. Youll review basic components of healthy diets for athletes and discover tried and true tips for pre-exercise, during, and post-exercise nutrition.
This workshop includes an activity to help participants learn about the carbohydrate content of foods, a tasting session of several commercial endurance nutrition products, and interactive Q&A.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
Workshop attendees will learn (1) how to create a balanced meal plan that supports your level of multisport activity; (2) the basics of nutrient balance and timing for training and races, and how this impacts your performance; and (3) the nutritional breakdown (and taste) of different commercial endurance nutrition products, comparisons to regular food choices, and how to select items right for your body.
All workshop participants will also receive a bonus 30-minute nutrition coaching session with Chrissy. This one-on-one session will be phone-based and will be scheduled at a mutually agreed upon time in the two months following the workshop. Take what you’ve learned in the workshop, test it out, and then get personalized follow-up and feedback in your one-on-one session!
