Learn to fuel the gymnast for optimal performance and longevity in the sport.
Learn how to fuel your gymnast so that you can avoid the top 3 major nutrition mistakes that keep most gymnasts stuck, struggling, and injured.
“I’m worried my gymnast is eating enough? What do I do?” Does this sound familiar?
On today’s podcast, I’m tackling a tough topic I hear from parents almost daily. The topic of, “how do I get my gymnast to eat more/enough for their high-level training”?!
Once parents become aware of how rampant under-fueling is in gymnastics and the devastating consequences that result from it, most then realize their gymnasts just aren’t eating enough.
But unfortunately knowing that under-fueling is the number one career killer of upper level gymnasts doesn’t just simply fix the issue. And if anything, it can cause a ton of frustration and friction between parent and gymnast. The parent knows how important it is, and may even have a good understanding of sports nutrition, but they just end up fighting with their gymnast who says they’re not hungry.

Listen in to find out what they are and what you can do to overcome these hurdles in your gymnast reaching their full potential.
