Performance Nutrition

Perform to your potential and finish strong

To perform at your potential, you need to get your nutrition right first. 

Our Team CP Nutritionist, Cushla, works with you one-on-one in the lead up to your events spending the time to ensure the foundations of your general health and nutrition are formed.

Moving forward, specific sports nutrition guidance and education is provided on a regular basis to ensure you become the expert of your own race day nutrition.  For athletes working towards specific events, Fortnightly and Monthly membership options are the most popular choice.
