You wouldn’t train without a plan. For big performance gains, plan what you eat, too.

You wouldn’t train without a plan. For big performance gains, plan what you eat, too.

Join us on June 15th at 7:00 pm when Monique Ryan, the most experienced nutritionist in endurance sports, presents on tuning up your diet for top performance.

Learn the full spectrum of sports nutrition strategies from basic hydration to carbohydrate targets for nutrition periodization, as well as devising a plan for optimal fueling strategies on race day. Endurance sports are too different for a “one size fits all” food plan, so specific strategies for running, triathlon and cycling are also reviewed.

Monique is currently the sports dietitian for the professional cycling team, Team Type 1, a men’s professional cycling team that competes in Europe, Asia, and North America. She has extensive experience working with elite athletes and was a member of the Performance Enhancement Team for USA Triathlon, USA Cycling (Women’s Road Team), and Synchro Swimming USA up to the 2004 Athens Olympic Games. She has consulted for multiple seasons with the Timex Multisport Team, and the Chicago Fire Soccer Team, and was the nutritionist for the Saturn Cycling Team for the 1994 to 2000 racing seasons. Monique has also consulted with professional football, baseball and basketball players, and team sport athletes competing at the high school and collegiate level. She has also consulted with many professional endurance triathletes, the Volvo-Cannondale Mountain Bike, Rollerblade Racing, and the Trek-Volkswagen and Gary Fisher Mountain Bike Teams. Monique has lectured extensively on sports nutrition to coaches, athletic trainers, and amateur athletes who train at all levels. For several months in 2000, Monique was on sabbatical at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra, Australia, one of the world’s top training and physiology and sport nutrition research centers. She is currently on the Medical Advisory Board of the Chicago Area Runner’s Association (CARA).

She has presented across the US, and in Canada, Brazil, Australia, and Thailand. Monique is quoted frequently for sports nutrition articles and her comments have appeared in the Chicago Tribune, New York Times, Chicago Sun-Times, Runner’s World, Fitness, Men’s Journal, Men’s Health, Outside, and Oxygen among other publications.
