Course Description:

As ski and snowboard instructors, we are pros at making sure our clients' needs are met, but often ignore our own. In this webinar, you'll learn why nutrition is so important for keeping energy levels high during your workday, what foods to focus on, and how fueling properly can help prevent burnout -- even through the busy, holiday work stretches.

During this webinar, the speaker will provide you with a step-by-step guide to fueling for the mountain, complete with easy meal and pocket snack ideas for instructors. At three key times during the webinar, you will review meal/snack options in the workbook (or come up with your own) and select what you plan to eat before, during, and after a day on the mountain. These review sessions are a great time to ask questions about each section of the webinar (fueling before, fueling during, fueling after). Additionally, there will be 30 minutes at the end for open Q&A.

This 90-minute webinar will give you the knowledge to:

1. Identify what to eat before, during, and after a day on the mountain to keep energy levels high throughout the season.

2. Outline a fueling plan for a day on the mountain.

3. Compare meal and snack options in the presenters' workbook.

About the Speaker:

Makayla Meixner, MS, RDN, is a registered sports dietitian and holds a master of science in nutrition from Central Michigan University. She has more than five years of experience working with recreational and competitive skiers and snowboarders through her online business, Own It Nutrition. Originally from Wisconsin, Makayla's passion for snowboarding brought her to Colorado in 2014. She grew up competing in USASA slopestyle and halfpipe events, is a Snowboard Level I instructor, and spends as much of her free time on the mountain as possible. Her nutrition philosophy is that nutrition doesn't have to be complicated, even for athletes at the highest level. Her goal is to teach you how to fuel for high performance without spending hours in the kitchen or overthinking your food choices.
