At The Athlete Lab, our idea of health and wellness goes beyond what you do in the gym. It starts with how you fuel and nourish your body.
With all the conflicting information out there, it’s hard to know what resources to go to for trusted guidance toward optimal health.
We greatly emphasize the importance of nutrition, which is the cornerstone to optimizing your athletic potential. What you eat affects your energy levels, mood, mental clarity, how you recover after a workout and how efficiently your metabolism burns calories.
Your body should run like a finely tuned machine, and the food you put into it can act as high quality jet fuel…or it can be the sludge that drags you down. You truly are what you eat.
