“In recent years numerous sports men and women have excelled on the international stage, as exemplified by the outstanding performances of Team GB at the London 2012 Olympic Games, and the Home Nations at the recent Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Part of this success is due to the outstanding and world leading support services that our athletes receive from support staff, and this event has highlighted the pivotal role that correct nutrition can and must play in the performance of athletes both before, during and after competition and training.” Professor John Brewer, St Mary’s University, London

The SENr Register is fast becoming the industry standard in Performance Nutrition, which gives athletes the reassurance that practitioners on the Register are qualified with the appropriate skills to support them in their pursuit of excellence.” Irene Riach, Performance Nutritionist, sportscotland Institute of Sport
