1 Month till the ONLINE Nutrition Summit…
As coaches we spend 1 hour a day in the gym with our clients and athletes. Maybe 2 at best. That leaves 23 hours for our clients to fend for themselves and potentially get it wrong.
But what happens when the results we are expecting don’t happen?
Our clients come to us and complain.
Well it’s time for us to take some responsibility.
It’s time to put systems together to educate people about what to do in those 23 hours.
It’s time to look at the programme holistically.
We need to train well.
In order to do that we need to fuel ourselves well.
And we need to recover well.
The Performance Nutrition Summit 2014 will give you those tools you need to build your system.
You’ll get the answers to the questions you’re being asked on a daily basis.
You’ll be getting world class knowledge and information from 5 of the VERY BEST.
It’s time to time things up a notch.

When I started S&C Education as a company around 2 years ago my goal was to bring world class education to the North of England (there was very little going on at the time).
My new goal is to bring world class education to the UK and internationally and improve coaching practice to everyone who comes on our events. This is the first Nutrition Summit we have done and it fits right in with our company mission.
Over the 2 days you’ll be learning about protein, weight loss, coaching nutritional habits, nutrient timing and much, much more. It’s an awesome weekend of knowledge that you can apply instantly!
Keep on reading to find out more about your presenters and exactly what they’ll be talking about.
Here’s who you’ll be learning from…
In this talk Matt Lovell will be presenting a model of nutrition coaching and his methods to build healthy habits over time.

Ultimately Matt will be teaching you how to get long term results from your clients and this is the essence of coaching.

Later, after completing a degree in Political Philosophy at Bristol, Matt couldn’t keep away from the health and fitness arena and qualified as a personal trainer; eventually running his own company in the City. This led to developing his other passion: nutrition. Matt undertook a further three years of study at the Institute of Optimum Nutrition.
He went on to spend time on Harley Street, specializing in elite sports, female hormonal health and body composition management.
