sport nutrition

OnSide Performance Centre’s sports nutrition program offers
individual counseling and group workshops led by our registered dietitian, specializing in
nutrition for sport performance.


A solid foundation when it comes to nutrition is critical in the pursuit of peak performance. Whether you’re a professional or amateur athlete, what you eat and drink will affect how well you perform. From fueling for daily training or competition to losing excess body fat or gaining muscle, OnSide Performance Centre has a program for you and your team. The nutrition needs of athletes are unique, and require the assessment skills of a qualified nutrition professional who can provide reliable and individualized recommendations, backed by science.


Registered Dietitians (RD) are the only regulated health professionals in the field of nutrition. They have extensive education and training to help you cut through the confusion and give you the best up-to-date and credible nutrition information to support your goals. Our in-house dietitian Jenny Jeffrey has additional education and expertise in nutrition for sport and athletic performance from the International Olympic Committee.

**If you have an extended health care plan that covers the services of a Registered Dietitian you may claim for reimbursement for nutrition counseling (check with your provider). 

Factors influencing sport performance


Adequately fueling your training sessions and competitions will have a direct impact on your performance and recovery.


Proper hydration is essential in training for temperature control to maintain proper muscle function, reduce the risk of heat stress, and ultimately prevent a decline in performance due to dehydration.


Strength & conditioning training is critical in the developing of favorable physical adaptations for optimal sport performance.


Adequate sleep is essential in the recovery process, as muscle is rebuilt and nutrients are restored, allowing optimal training the following day.
