Sports nutrition – it’s not just for the professional athletes.
Whether you workout in the gym, are a weekend warrior or a more serious amateur athlete your sports nutrition needs are no different to that of the Olympian, Premier League football player or professional tri-athlete.
Sports nutrition plays an integral part in improving both sports performance and recovery at the elite level including sports such as:
- Premier League Football
- County Cricket

- Maintain optimal body composition for your sport
- Manage inflammation caused by exercise
- Protect your immune system
- Prevent exercise induced muscle damage
- Dispel the myths of carb loading
- Speed up injury healing

With Steve’s sports nutrition advice I’ve gone from 15% body fat to 10%, I’ve put on 5kg of muscle mass and I won Premier League Player of the Month whilst working with Steve. I’m stronger, leaner and in great shape for the world cup”

“I went to see Steve as I was interested in losing weight and learning about sports nutrition. We worked together on a manageable nutritional plan which resulted in losing a stone of fat whilst maintaining my strength and fitness. As a result of his advice I managed to take an hour off my previous race time! His knowledge is second to none and explains the role of nutrition in layman’s terms.
