  2. Showcase some basic methodologies / techniques used by exercise physiologists and researchers to measure muscle and whole body metabolism;
  3. Recognize the impact nutrition has on critical physiological regulatory points that may impact metabolism and athletic performance.

The content of this elearning course is applicable to the athletic population, and it is useful for dietetic and nutrition professionals, those aspiring to be nutrition professionals, or those looking to complement their scientific knowledge in sports nutrition topics of interest. The videos are presented by Dr. Trent Stellingwerff, PhD, Exercise Physiologist and Sports Nutritionist, currently working at the Canadian Sport Institute Pacific. Trent works closely with many DC sports dietitians.
