Give your body what it needs to live better and it will perform better.

So often we associate “healthy” with the exterior appearance of the body while on the inside we may be the furthest thing from it. Jereme will discuss methods that allow for peak performance and a fit appearance. Particularly, these methods promote a genuinely healthy body and can be sustained for a lifetime, not just for a season. He will confront many of the myths surrounding diet and performance and offer useful take-home solutions you can implement in your training and daily life.

Topics will include:

  • The long-term consequences of relying on quick-burning fuels
  • Eating for workouts and competition
  • Changing the food/exercise mentality
  • Pre/Post workout approaches
