Why Is Nutrition Important
Nutrition is incredibly important because it is the catalyst that allows your young athlete to stay safe while practicing her sport. When nutrition is lacking, we see a decrease in strength, recovery takes longer than it should, attitudes aren’t where they should be, and their chance for injury always increases.
But, the good news is that the opposite is true. Whenever we see an increase in nutrition, we always see strength increase, recovery times decrease, mental focus increases and the chance for injury decreases.
This is the whole reason we put Stay Fueled together. We love working with young athletes on a daily basis, but we’re tired of seeing them get injured. Every major injury I’ve seen in the gym has a nutrition component to it. Either the athlete was skipping meals, they were dehydrated, or their mid-practice snack was junk food and they lost mental focus.
We want to see your young athlete succeed through nutrition and become everything they were meant to be. Nutrition is a vital part of this and Stay Fueled gives you a done for you experience including meal plans, recipes, and shopping lists.
