Personalised Sports Nutrition (PSN) Online Module 

  • 9-day module ONLINE ONLY


Personalised Sports Nutrition (PSN) is based on a 9-day online-only module which addresses the functional approach to Sports Nutrition.  Justifying personalised nutrition interventions for competitive athletes or sporting individuals who may be training alongside chronic health problems is central to this module.

Sports Nutrition Course Overview

Historically, sports nutrition has focused on the quantity and balance of nutrients consumed in an athlete’s diet, with the aim of striving towards optimum sports performance. Concordant with this aim, the module will study the macro and micro-nutrient requirements for competitive gain, including important considerations such as timings of food and fluid consumption around training exertions and competition.

In addition, the nutritional therapy approach will introduce to students the concepts of functional laboratory assessment of metabolic processes. This may have important implications for the understanding of substrate metabolism, detoxification, free radical pathology, inflammation, signs of over-training and even premature ageing in sporting individuals. Health, incorporating optimum metabolic functioning, is thought to be a pre-requisite for athletes to maximise their sporting performance. The use and abuse of Ergogenic aids and drugs will also be discussed, along with consideration of injury prevention and treatment through nutrition. Supplementation of natural products will be another important consideration within this revised sports nutrition model.
