WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

Through the science of genomics, we know that gene SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) can impact gene expression. This may result in sub- optimal performance, increased risk of injury, poor recovery time and impaired utilization of macro and micronutrients associated with athletic performance.  Presently, there are more than 70 genes linked to optimizing athletic performance. The new science of genomics can be used to eliminate the guesswork, and empower you to create truly personalized nutrition and training programs that take athletes and fitness fans to a new level of performance and health.  In this online webinar series, learn how to combine genomic information with evidence-based nutrition science to generate personalized meal solutions and training regimens to optimize performance for the competitive clientele you serve.
