Our goal is to expose you to different philosophies and ideas and how they are integrated into our methodology and systems of training and nutrition. We want you to learn how to evaluate the athlete, understand fundamental needs of the athlete based on their goals and activity level and how to relay those needs to the team as well as to the athlete to really understand the integrated approach to athlete care. You will also spend time work with the culinary team putting the nutrition recommendations created into practice. Open your mind about all of the possibilities when working with athletes--think outside the box and forget the cookie cutter approach.
