Nutrition: a Physiological Aproach

Proper athletic training must include more than what one does in the gym. It must include proper nutrition and proper rest in addition to a physical training regimen.

Nutrition can be defined in four different ways:

  1. The science of dietary requirements and standards (such as recommended daily allowance or RDA) for proper health and development.

  2. The process by which organisms take in and utilize food, as in carbohydrate, fat and protein utilization and energy production.

  3. The relationships between specific nutrient and how they contribute to the health of the human body, such as the combining of incomplete proteins from vegetable sources to create complementary proteins.

  4. The sum of the process concerned in the growth, maintenance and repair of the living body as a whole, or of its constituent parts.

The working definition of nutrition used by NGA certified professional trainers and instructors pull all of these ideas together in the term proper nutrition.

For the personal trainer or instructor, it is important to understand that proper nutrition is vital to successful training and the achievement of optimal physical performance. That is why the trainer or the instructor should make every effort to educate clients toward establishing and maintaining an adequate and balanced daily intake of nutrient throughout any type of training program.
