Hydrating the Athlete is a 22-minute video designed to bring a sports dietitian to your athletes! This video covers the ins and outs of hydration, including what to drink when to drink and how much to drink. The video dials in on pre-, during- and post-exercise hydration and strategies to monitor hydration status and help prevent cramping. It also discusses how to fuel and refuel with nutrient-rich beverages.
As a sports dietitian, I am constantly asked for practical ways to help fuel athletes. From school to meetings to training to competitions, athletes of every age, shape and sport are challenged to fuel their bodies appropriately. I know that if athletes will make nutrition and hydration a top priority, it will give them an edge and ultimately help them perform their best!
