Did you know nutrition is often considered the "4th discipline" in triathlon? Nutrition and hydration can make or break your training. Endurance sports, such as marathon, triathlon, open water swimming, trail running, and cycling demand the right nutrition in order to excel.
This course provides all you need to know about fueling for training and racing, including carbs, protein, energy needs, supplements, hydration, and troubleshooting common problems like gastrointestinal issues and muscle cramps.
This course includes:
1) Video modules on every topic you need to know to train and race harder and stronger
2) Carbohydrate fueling guide
3) What to eat before, during, and after workouts
4) Sweat rate cheat sheet to dial in on your perfect hydration
5) Protein powder guide
Here's what some happy dietitians had do say:
"Provided clear information...thoroughly defined energy, carbohydrate, protein, fluid, electrolytes and supplements in addition to conditions such as RED-S. All information was based in current evidence and was accurate."
"This is a great course, very thorough and covering all aspects of nutrition needs necessary for counseling endurance athletes. Evidence-based with an extensive list of references. Marisa makes sure to note where there are different approaches to specific topics. She includes information on what is popular, but may or may not have significant research to support the practice."
"Clear and concise."
