athletic patients
living up to life's challenges

It is the position of the American Dietetic Association, Dieticians of Canada, and the American College of Sports Medicine that physical activity, athletic performance, and recovery from exercise are enhanced by optimal nutrition (1). These organizations recommend appropriate selection of food and fluids, timing of intake, and supplement choices for optimal health and exercise performance.

With the use of bioimpedance analysis (BIA) to monitor body composition - a key indicator of health and fitness (2,3), health care practitioners can develop, monitor, and manage diet, nutrition, and exercise programs that lead to improved overall physical condition.
