North Lanarkshire Athletics
Working at the fantastic Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility I worked with athletes ranging from under 11 up to under 17 from the North Lanarkshire catchment area.
Whilst working here I carried out a number of workshops educating them on the importance of a healthy balanced and the effects it will have on training and competition. I also looked at their food diaries to give them a better idea of how their current diet was and what they could do to improve it.
As part of the workshops I carried out some practical sessions where I showed them how to make a number of products at home including sports drinks and protein drinks to allow them to understand that as they get older they shouldn’t be relying on supplements to achieve their training goals, as it can easily be achieved through their diet.
