Nutrium sports nutrition software has everything you need to enhance your team's performance by monitoring athletes' nutrition and athletic progress.
We created a project designed for athletic programs in Universities where we bring together the sports dietitian, athletic director, coach, and the athlete. Learn more about why and how you can take your team to the next level and edge out the competition with Nutrium!
If you are reading this article it's because you're looking for ways to improve your athletes' performance and level up their game. One of the best ways to do this is by monitoring sports performance metrics. This will provide a baseline of an athlete's current athleticism, identify individual training needs, help prevent injuries, and allow your team to compete at higher levels.
To achieve optimal sports performance levels, it's important to pay attention to skill, strength, endurance, and recovery. And since sports nutrition plays a key role in athletic performance, it's crucial to use diet analysis when achieving those results. Not only will a well-balanced, specialized diet improve an athlete's body composition, but it will also provide quality sleep and better hydration, all of which translates into more energy, improved athletics results, and faster recovery.
Nutrition and improved performance work together!
By establishing individual connections with athletes to track their nutrition and athletic performance, you can make your athletes the best they can be! That is why having a tool (such as Nutrium) that can track each athlete's nutrition, and fitness progress will go a long way in improving performance and taking your team to the next level.
So, how can Nutrium level up your team? Here are some ways that this nutrition software helps you edge out the competition.
Specialized (and individualized) sports nutrition
One of the most common sports nutrition-related issues is the lack of sufficient nutrients and energy. Since each sport and athlete are different, having a specialized, well-planned nutrition strategy is vital. This usually includes carefully selecting foods and fluids to maximize training, boost endurance, aid in recovery, reduce fatigue, and improve mental performance and skill. When each athlete has a solid nutrition plan, your team will be stronger as a whole and have a higher chance of out-performing other teams.
To help achieve better athletic results, Nutrium offers specialized meal plans, food journals, recipes, nutrition analysis, and an app for each athlete to communicate with the dietitian, athletic director, and/or coach. This will ensure that each athlete is eating enough of the right foods and nutrients to improve performance.
Having an app like Nutrium's mobile app will allow sports professionals to work closely with each athlete since they are able to track their food and water intake to monitor their athletic progress as well as sports habits through synced apps like Google Fit and AppleHealth.
Here are the key benefits:
- Meal plans can be personalized for each athlete due to their different needs or health conditions;
- The meal plan can be based on different food options but also recipes;
- The recommendations can be updated at any time according to the athletes' feedback, any changes in the practice protocol, injuries, or time of the season;
- The professional can include not only different meals to guide the athlete but also include educational information to be accessed through the app, at any time;
- With each meal plan, athletes can generate a shopping list.
For example, if an athlete has diabetes, the dietitian can create a plan that works for them while still improving athletic performance. These individual plans can also include a post-workout meal, which is crucial for recovery. A specialized nutrition plan will also decrease the risk of injury.
In addition to reduced risk of injury, athletes will also benefit from improved body composition. Increased lean body mass leads to strength and power development (related to muscle size), which contributes to speed, agility performance, cardiorespiratory endurance, and quickness. Conversely, the more non-essential body fat an athlete has, their endurance, balance, coordination, and movement capacity will be more limited.
That's why Nutrium's meal planning and nutrition tracking features are so important! It will help you understand each athlete's diet and ensure that they meet nutritional goals.
Increased athletic performance
Sports nutrition is one of the main components of increased athletic performance, but it's not the only factor. Athleticism also plays a massive role in overall performance, which is why it's crucial to monitor and coordinate each athlete's progress (both on and off the field).
Here's how Nutrium can help with athletic performance:
- With the app, athletes can add their food journals during the pre-season, peak season, and even off-season. Using our food databases, the dietitian or sports nutritionist can then analyze their food journal and check if they've made progress with their food choices in terms of macronutrients and micronutrients;
- As it syncs up with health tools such as Google Fit and Apple Health it is easier for professionals to analyze each athlete's activity levels. This information can also be used to modify nutritional needs to make sure athletes are at peak performance;
- Dietitians and coaches can connect with athletes securely and virtually via telehealth to make sure they are feeling and performing their best.
Overall, improved athletic performance comes from a solid nutrition plan, which translates into more energy, better results on the field, and faster recovery times.
Enhanced work efficiency
Not only will your athletes have individualized nutrition and monitored athletic progress, but you can work more efficiently by ditching additional programs.
With Nutrium, you will experience a streamlined process as it consolidates other apps to give you an edge over rival institutions. You can also scale it across sports teams, departments, and campuses. If one team is using it, other teams can use it, too! And, since Nutrium's app allows coaches and dietitians to track progress and keep up with athletes, it will also coordinate athletes' needs with all team professionals.
This will keep everyone on the same page, improve efficiency, and keep athlete care in the center of attention.
It will also be much easier to make sure all athletes are being compliant with their recommendations as dietitians can easily track who has been tracking their food journals, water intake, and exercise.
To edge out the competition, sports performance is key.
Nutrition plays a crucial role in this, so having a tool like Nutrium will help take athletic teams to the next level. Thanks to this cutting-edge software solution, sports dietitians, athletic directors, and coaches can examine the relative needs of each athlete.
With the ability to measure, track, and monitor nutritional intake and athletic performance, these professionals can help athletes become their better version and better team player.
