Mason Athletics to Unveil “Peak Performance”

The transition from high school to college can be an intimidating experience for all students. College life requires more self-discipline and self-control which, at times, is difficult to balance in a student’s first time away from home.

Student-athletes, who experience all of those same dilemmas, have all of those issues magnified by the prospect of competing at a high level in their respective sports. More time, energy and practice is required at the college level and, at times, student-athletes fail to take extra time to meet the demands of their bodies.

The Center  for Sports Performance promotes a multidisciplinary approach to assist  the student-athletes’ physical development for  athletic competition and lifetime health. At Mason, the sports dietitian supports athletes in reaching their full potential through individual assessment, counseling in proper fueling and hydration for positive sports performance results.

On Monday, Nov. 19 at 7:30 p.m., the Mason Athletic Department will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony to introduce the newest initiative from the Center for Sports Performance: Peak Performance, a sports specific dining experience at Southside Dining Hall. All meals at Peak Performance, planned by the sports dietician, are tailored to meet the demands of an elite athlete.

Mason Athletics offers a variety of Sports Nutrition Services for varsity student-athletes, including individual counseling (nutrition assessment, healthy meal and snack options for athlete’s sports specific needs), small group presentations (proper fueling and hydration strategies for pre-during-post exercises) and team presentations (eating on the road, anti-inflammatory foods and other sports specific topics).
