"Your Key To Success"

Functional Training Nutrition Overview

Proper nutrition is the most essential tool to optimize your health, training programs and functional performance. Allowing the proper healthy foods to consistently dominate your diet can help the body in its efforts to build muscle, lose unwanted pounds, heal itself, strengthen the immune system and lessen the risks of serious illness. In order to have a healthy productive body that thrives for years to come, you must understand that eating a healthy, balanced diet provides proper nutrients to your body and will determine the functional health of every cell and organ in your body.

WHEN you don't give your body the proper nutrients, it WILL NOT function at its best.

Just stop and think for a moment...Improving your eating habits will contribute to you achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, give you energy, keep your heart beating, your brain active and your muscles working. To truly maintain your energy and vitality requires a combination of high-quality nutrition and appropriate supplementation.

There is no other way to improve unless you embrace that the majority of the battle for success is eating properly.

If you haven't been fueling your body properly with the proper nutrients, your are really sabotaging all of the time and energy you are directing toward your training workouts. In fact, if you have been ignoring your nutrition up until this point, you've only reached a fraction of your potential. Don't deprive your body its share of essential nutrients because doing so will have a negative effect on your workouts, healthy weight loss, or athletic performance efforts. It needs the proper fuel to support all of its efforts. There is no other way to improve unless you embrace that the majority of the battle for success is eating properly. You need to recognize that functional training nutrition goes a long way to determine overall health and optimal performance. There's no way you can improve your health and fitness unless you recognize that 90% of the formula is eating properly.

When you are ready to implement a healthy eating plan, don't expect rapid results. Enjoy the journey 1 day at a time. Unlike drugs, nutrients do not have rapid effects. No quick fix!

Think of it in this manner. If you take a neglected house plant and start feeding and watering it consistently better, the leaves may perk up a bit from the improved nutrition. But you have to wait on the old leaves to die off and new leaves to grow before you get a really healthy plant. This takes time to do.

Nutrition not only fuels your body for physical activities, it also ensures proper recovery. Fueling your body correctly will increase your energy levels and enhance the quality of your exercise sessions enabling you to maximize all workouts and other physical activities. Proper diet wards off disease, allowing you to maximize the ultimate goal of better fitness: your health. Eating correct also decreases inflammation that contributes to muscle pain, joint discomfort, and overuse injuries.

We all need to embrace functional training nutrition as a training partner.

Nutrition is far more responsible for creating your shape and your health then you could have ever imagine...Whatever your goals, proper nutrition will help you achieve true peak performance capabilities. If you really want to do the best for your body, give it the highest quality fuel available. Including supplements as part of a balanced lifestyle - along with a healthy diet, exercise and relaxation - can help you stay on the path to optimum health and performance. Consuming a diet that maintains a healthy weight and contains plenty of anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant compounds is essential - as is regular exercise and ensuring plenty of high-quality sleep. Proper nutrition is crucial to improved health and performance.
