We see clients ranging from body builders and figure competitors trying to cut for competition, to triathletes and marathon runners looking to fuel their PB time.
In order to help you achieve your goals we need to know as much as possible about you and your current sports nutrition plan.
After booking your session we will send you some paper work to fill in. This paper work includes information on your past medical history and current dietary habits.
During the initial session we will take some anthropometrical measurements such as height, weight, body fat, BMI, waist circumference and waist to hip ratio. This provides starting point data from which to measure your progress.
After this we will establish your goals and go through the paper work so I can figure out a plan for you.
In the initial session we will put together a sports nutrition and supplement plan for you. In some cases this is all that is needed and we can meet again in one or two months time to check in, re-take measurements and discuss your progress.
It is not unusual for it to take at least 3 months to see significant changes in your body composition, but you should start to feel the benefits in your training and recovery almost immediately.

Benefits of Sports Nutrition…
In a few cases more input is required to take your performance and recovery to the next level. There may also be some additional testing required in order to help you:
Sweat patch testing and interpretation
This helps to establish how much sodium and chloride you lose in your sweat. We all have different genetic express for sweating and your performance could be hindering by excessive sodium loss leading to cramping. Once we have assess this we can ensure you have the right amount of sodium in your diet. We can also work out your sweat volume and make sure you are consuming enough fluids in training and competitions.
BioSignature, body fat assessment and interpretation
This helps to establish where you are storing body fat in relation to other areas, For example you may be storing more fat around you waste and we will need to manage your carbohydrate consumption.
Salivary, immune and hormonal markers and interpretation
Immune markers such as sIgA can be measured in saliva. This marker is sensitive to stress and we know that it is decreased in over training that can lead to upper respiratory tract infections. We can also measure stress hormones in saliva to see how your hormonal system is adapting to training and performance.
A comprehensive blood and urine test to establish your need for vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, essential fats and vitamin D. This also shows markers for amino acid metabolism, toxic metabolites and bowel health.
What are the tests for?
These tests highlight how your body is responding to the stress that you are exposing it to and how you can optimise your training, nutrition and recovery strategies.
Armed with these test results, your anthropometrics and food diary I can put a detailed nutrition plan together for you that will help you work towards your goal.
This level of input does have costs associated to it with the testing and follow up sessions that are required.
Follow up sessions are recommended on a monthly basis to implement the actions required based on testing results and you will need to commit yourself to this process for a number of months.
We look forward to being to help you improve your performance.
I could not recommend Wandsworth physiotherapy more highly. Both Steve and Sid were invaluable to my marathon preparation and because they offer a wide range of services including physiotherapy, acupuncture and sports massage they are able to treat people in numerous ways to get the best results.
These guys are fantastic! Really quick to reply and they found me an appointment on the same day. I've since had regular treatments with Alessio who is excellent, and my torn IT band, shoulder and other ailments are much improved. Brilliant for both sports injuries and wellness.
Booked an appointment for the same day on a Saturday. Adele has been very welcoming and helpful, providing useful advice as well as efficient treatment. Great local clinic, will definitely come back and recommend.
Great Physio. Adele is very knowledgeable and helpful. She knew exactly where the pain was and was able to fix it. Everyone is very friendly. It's definitely worth a visit if you have any sort of pain!
I've been several times for several different problems and Steve has always been excellent. He listens really carefully and asks good questions to find out exactly what's wrong, and is very clear with follow-up exercises to continue the therapy at home. Highly recommend him!
