Our body needs energy simply to carry out the most basic, but vital functions such as breathing, pumping the heart and internal organs to work. As our muscles work more e.g. in order to walk, talk and move, more energy is needed. This energy comes from food and is processed within our body and released or stored for future use. People who do sports, not only need to eat a healthy and balanced diet to account for any extra energy needed, but also to replenish vital nutrients lost in e.g. sweating. An understanding of the principles of good nutrition and how it relates to sport is important for those who exercise and keep fit, want to stay healthy, are interested in training others in sporting activities, from marathons to tennis tournaments, or are training to reach peak levels in their chosen activity. The course will cover a broad variety of topic areas including types of performance enhancers and meal planning to coach young athletes. Learning is enhanced in this course by encouraging learners to test their new knowledge to practise on activities that can then be used for clients.
