What you eat and drink can have great impact
on your sports performance! I know. I've made it my business
to know. I've been a professional in the sports nutrition
field for more than a decade. But, my love of the game, all
games, actually goes much, much farther back."
Growing up, it seemed to me that the whole
state of Nebraska was focused on football. People drove hours
to see the Cornhuskers play. Neighbors who moved out-of-state
flew back to town for games. On game weekends my house was
a sea of red and white clothing as my entire family gathered
to listen to the game on the radio. I was hooked! My interest
in sports grew, exponentially, from there.
By high school I'd decided to become an
athletic trainer. In college, with the encouragement of a
mentor (an athletic trainer), I combined my passion for sports
with an interest in nutrition. I decided to major in "sports"
nutrition, with an emphasis in athletic training.
Seeking the best education possible in
both fields, I headed off to Arizona State University, a Division
I College. As a Student Athletic Trainer there, I had opportunity
to work with a wide variety of athletes, in a wide variety
of sports. Very soon into my studies, I saw firsthand the
role nutrition can play in enhancing athletic performance.
I learned that each sport uses a different
strength and conditioning program to maximize performance.
The goal of these specialized conditioning programs is to
"recruit" more muscle fibers, to mimic specific
movements required for success in each sport, and to
tap into the different energy systems that are utilized in
As I began to understand the specific demands
each sport makes on an athletes body, and just how significant
nutrition can be in performance enhancement, I began to see
a need for the dissemination of accurate sports nutrition
information. (Many of the athletes I work with used to get
a fair amount of "inaccurate" information from magazines
and well-meaning, but uninformed friends).
There is so much information out there,
some useful, some down right wrong! It's hard to decipher
the good from the bad – or to know how to apply it. That's
why I started Sports Nutrition 2Go (SN2Go).
Through Sports Nutrition 2Go, my staff
and I have created clear nutrition guidelines for both competitive
and recreational athletes. My information is easy to understand
and, most importantly, easy to apply. Whether you are a high
school soccer player, marathon runner, or a weekend warrior,

strategy/plan to fit your individual performance and health
