With a spotlight on healthy eating habits, watch our first ever online talk on BMC TV.
BMC Junior Team coach and qualified Nutritional Therapist Lucinda Whittaker delivers the talk which focuses on how the food we eat impacts upon performance, be that when out climbing, walking or mountaineering.
Lucinda's presentation includes details of the athlete profiling tool she has developed which coaches can use. This is part of a larger package of similar tools measuring the technical, tactical, physiological and psychological (TTPP) attributes of climbing performance.
Profiling is used widely in many sports to inform the coaching process, and the BMC's tools are designed to support climbing coaches. However, the tool developed by Lucinda is not sport specific, and so relevant to a wide audience.
You do not need to be a coach to gain something from Lucinda’s talk, anyone with an interest in the link between the food we eat and performance will benefit.
Profiling tools will form part of Mountain Training’s Performance Coach award, so those on the coaching pathway can receive some coach education from the comfort of their own home!
