Commencing March 2019, the services of a Sports Dietitian will be added to our facility. Our Dietitian Stephanie understands the nutrition needs of athletes, having been an athlete herself competing at the Canadian National Running Championships for both short and long distances. Stephanie has worked with competitive and recreational athletes of various levels and ages.
Sports Dietitians are unique in that they have an in depth understanding of the nutrition requirements for different sports and positions. Dietitians can suggest pregame and post game meals that will increase performance and optimize recovery. Sports Dietitians can also create nutrition plans to help build muscle, to decrease fat stores and to optimize supplementation. As a dietitian, Stephanie has also spent time working with the general public for healthy aging, diabetes management, food allergies/intolerance, etc. To inquire about a consult with out dietitian, or to inquire about pricing, give us a call at 416-252-5776.
Our Sports Dietitian now has her ISAK Level 1 certification and will be offering both Body Composition/Resting Metabolic Rate Assessments as well as Skinfold Assessments.
A body composition test in conjunction with a RMR analysis measures your unique body composition and your personal caloric requirements. An accurate assessment of your body composition and RMR helps you, your Dietitian, and your Coach/Trainer to better plan and evaluate the effectiveness of your nutrition and training programs. This body composition test is done with the latest in multi-frequency bio-electrical impedance analysis using the InBody520. The accuracy of this analysis makes it possible for the InBody520 to monitor the slightest changes in body composition during the process of weight loss/gain and sport performance training programs.
The skinfold measurement test is one of the oldest and still most common methods of determining a person's body composition and body fat percentage. This test is performed using international standards for anthropometric assessment and an international anthropometry accreditation scheme developed by The International Society for the Advancement of Kinanthropometry (ISAK). Results can be tracked over time to assess the effect of different types of training, nutritional interventions or supplement use on body fat and muscle mass levels.
