“Somewhere behind the athlete I’ve become and the hours of practice and the coaches who have pushed me is the little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back… I play for her.”
Some people are singularly committed to a goal, and when it comes to serious athletes, this generally revolves around attaining peak physical condition and competing at the highest level in a preferred sport. Whether you’re running ultra-marathons, training for the Tour de France, or competing for the world cup in Alpine skiing, you need to do everything you can to ensure that your body delivers on-demand.
Training is a big part of becoming the best in your sport, perhaps even making it to the Olympic level, but nutrition is equally important. Without the right nutrients and supplements, your body won’t have the fuel needed to function like a well-oiled machine.
As a female athlete, you push hard to reach your goals, and you need to make sure your body is up to the challenge. When you’re training full-time, you need to replenish with caloric intake and nutrients that help to keep energy high, as well as maintain and repair damaged muscle, bone, and other tissue.
