Using content from the book Endurance Sports Nutrition, Third Edition, this course delivers practical information on endurance-specific nutrition that can be applied immediately, including establishing high-performance eating habits that support personal training and competition goals. It explores methods for meeting high energy demands, finding and maintaining a healthy weight, timing food and fluid intake for optimal results, using supplements effectively, solving performance challenges, creating vegetarian-friendly endurance diets, and planning balanced meals. Also included is advice from elite endurance athletes and strategies for avoiding the most common pitfalls of training.

    You will learn how to apply the nutrition strategies and concepts from the book and study guide to real athletes. The course will enable you to develop the ability to identify, evaluate, and present possible solutions based on case studies describing scenarios of athletes who face certain challenges.

    Course Objectives

    • Understand the physiology of the body’s energy-generating systems, the energy demands from endurance activity, and how they affect and determine fuel choices.

    • Evaluate supplement manufacturers’ claims and promises and determine whether a supplement is safe, legal, and effective for endurance athletes.
    • Create meal plans for high-performance endurance athletes by translating the science of nutrition into smart daily food choices.
    • Understand nutrition strategies timed for before, during, and after events under extreme environmental conditions including heat, cold, and altitude.
