Nutritional Supplementation

The practice of nutritional supplementation among athletes and active people is at an all-time high, with many people regarding 'supplementation' as a key element of their training program, and the success they achieve.

The team at Performance Training Systems has developed a position on supplement use which advocates that nutritional supplementation is not necessary to maximize your training or your performance. However, we recognize that certian physical and health related conditions exist which may require the assistance that supplementation, in it's traditional form, may be useful, beneficial, and recommended.

The first objective set out in Performance Training System's 'Mission' is to "provide aspiring athletes with sport performance training through a multi-disciplinary team of sport professionals..." this includes exercise nutritionists. It is our goal to educate our athletes on the issues that influence their training, so that they know what they are doing, subjecting their body to, the adaptations that can result, and the potential risks associated with what they are doing. At Performance Training Systems, we strive to educate our athletes on the science of Nutritional Supplementation.

On this page, and all the links attached to it, you will find the information you need to educate yourself on what exercise nutritional supplementation is, how the common supplements are reported to influence your training, and the reported risks associated with supplement use. If you plan on, or are currently using nutritional supplements, you need to review the information here.
