What is the role of nutrition in sports?

A sports RD can help optimize nutrition to enhance athletic performance, support training adaptations, and promote recovery while preventing injury.


What is the difference between sports nutrition and general nutrition?

Athletes are considered a different population therefore, they have different needs than the general public. Sports nutrition has a focus on an athlete's unique health needs due to the extra physical demands they face and their performance. Sports RD’s can provide individual nutrition counseling, personalized meal plans, and offer practical strategies to help athletes remain competitive while maintaining optimal health. 

General dietitian’s provide nutritional counseling to individuals across a broad range of populations, ages, and health conditions by providing personalized meal plans and offering practical strategies to help individuals maintain optimal health.

How much does a sports nutritionist cost?

We accept most major insurance companies and the majority of our clients pay little to nothing outside of copays or deductibles to meet with a member of our team. We also offer military discounts as we are not in network with Tricare. We always recommend checking your insurance benefits regarding nutrition coverage as coverage depends on the patient's individual insurance plan.
