Any athlete of any age or level can benefit from a consultation with a sports nutritionist on how to use their nutrition to help them meet their goals. 

A performance nutritionist educates athletes on what they should eat and drink to get the most out of their training. A sports nutritionist might help a recreational runner get through training for their first marathon, or advise an elite sprinter on what to eat before a race to win that gold medal. They may design meal plans for a cyclist looking to lose body fat, or recommend specific supplements to a weightlifter looking to gain muscle mass.
