Hi, I'm Alex Chrysovergis, strength and conditioning coach, nutrition consultant and self-defense instructor. I am the owner of “Streetwise”, the leading contact combat and fitness school in Greece. I am also a fitness writer/contributor on some of the most respected and sought-after online sports and fitness authorities like T-Nation and SimpliFaster.
This course will help you understand the sophisticated subject that is sports nutrition in a concise and structured way. By the end of it you will know exactly how to plan your diet in order to significantly enhance your health, athletic performance and body composition, whether you’re looking to gain muscle mass, lose fat or maintain your current weight. If you are a professional trainer you will be able to use these skills to offer nutritional guidance to your clients and help them achieve their goals more efficiently.
The course begins by covering the fundamentals of sports nutrition and gradually progresses into more elaborate topics, like the crucial role of hormones and neurotransmitters in human metabolism and body composition. The material is presented via a plethora of mediums like videos, articles and slides, and was gathered through years of academic and applied knowledge.
My purpose was to build a succinct, to-the-point lesson series that will simplify complex concepts and provide essential theoretical and practical foundation by concentrating on what really matters while filtering out unnecessary, stretched-out overexplaining. The truth is that we live in an age of information bombardment and are constantly overwhelmed by the abundance of choices and stimuli. Obviously, there is not enough time to keep up with everything, and this is why in my opinion, today more than ever, learning should be smart and time-efficient. With this objective in mind, this course was designed to be complete and thorough, but also laser-focused and information-dense. It will teach you everything you need to know without superfluous banter used just for the sake of filling more time. This is a course you will actually finish.
