Additional Information

Adequate Nutrition

Proper nutrition and a good diet are essential for an athlete to perform at their best possible level. Exercising without the proper amount of fuel is like driving a car without gas.

In order for a person to perform at their best level, eating a sufficient number of nutrients (specifically carbohydrates) and consuming an adequate amount of water is needed. Consuming carbohydrates is important prior to exercises because that is the body's main form of energy that gets burned.
