An Accredited Sports Dietitian provides accurate nutrition information and advice, based on scientific evidence to all active Australians. Their role is to maximise performance through nutrition by providing practical strategies, as well as support to athletes and active individuals regarding their nutrition intake. Sports nutrition isn’t only for elite athletes, but the everyday athlete as well. 

Sam is an Accredited Sports Dietitian and can cater for the person who is working full time and training for a marathon or an iron man, the mum who is trying to fit in training between dropping kids to school and working as well or the student trying to juggle staying active with study and working part time.
