As an athlete, it should come as no surprise that to optimize performance you have to put in the physical work. But, that’s not the whole picture. Is the “no pain, no gain” mantra doing you more harm than good? Scientific data shows that performance optimization is directly linked to health, energy levels, adequate sleep, recovery and balanced nutrition.
Endurance athletes devote long, intense training hours and consequently are at risk for nutritional blind spots and deficiencies that can lead to anemia, endocrine disorders, muscle damage, inflammation, bone disorders, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and hormone imbalances. Diet, along with lifestyle habits, play a significant role in improving blood values. Blood testing is “a detailed check under the hood,” inside your body and investment in your performance and long-term health.
TEST, DON’T GUESS. Analyzing your blood values is the MOST measurable and scientific way to assess potential health limiters inside your body as it relates to training, performance, and diet. By identifying a potential problem before it becomes a performance limiter, a nutritional deficiency or a health concern, a thorough analysis of your blood work from a Board-Certified Sports Dietitian is a proven approach to boosting performance.
