Robert Kennedy is the founder and President of Fuel4Training. During the many years of running, competing in triathlons and coaching swimmers at the local Y, Coach Bob came to appreciate the role of nutrition in fitness, sport and long term health. The current thinking is that endurance athletes should load up on carbohydrate continuously, even to the extent of supplementing their diets with commercial products while avoiding real foods.The shift away from healthy vegetables ,fruits, and leans proteins is quite common in the athletic community. Such a shift, while good for carbo loading the day before a race, overlooks the necessity of eating foods that are rich in other nutrients. This philosophy not only has negative consequences for health but also compromises and endurance athlete’s capacity for recovery ( training over 2 hours plays havoc on the immune system) and subsequent quality of training. Fuel4training is more than just a diet, our unique seasonal approach to nutrition will help you fulfill your best potential on race day and you will learn to make healthy lifestyle changes so that you can continue to train well.
