Nutrition is regarded as the fourth discipline in triathlon. Success in endurance sport depends on keeping energy levels up to power through the hours spent on course.
Triathletes at every level from beginner to pro stand to benefit from putting the right kind of food at the right time into their bodies to get more out of their bodies. This includes managing nutrition throughout training as well as racing.
Sports dietician and accredited practicing dietician Chloe McLeod is part of MX Endurance’s powerful team of experts our members can access to achieve their individual goals in sport.
“Having a nutrition plan you have confidence in help you focus on training effectively, remain healthy and achieve performance gains through tweaking what you are eating,” says McLeod, who currently works with corporate health and private clients in triathlon, cycling and running in Sydney.
McLeod provides athletes nutrition advice and nutrition plans even in the remotest of locations. “I love the online community MX Endurance has created, meaning geography is no longer an issue,” she says. “Much of what we can work on with nutrition plans can be done remotely - meaning regardless of where you are located, a nutrition plan doesn’t have to be something that is missing from your arsenal come race day.”
Chloe McLeod has had a keen interest in nutrition from a young age due to food intolerances as well as a realization about the important role food plays in an active lifestyle. She has a bachelor’s degree in Nutrition & Dietetics, a master’s degree in Public Health, has received Sports Dietetics training through the Australian Institute of Sport, and has earned qualifications for ISAK Level 1, and is a member of DAA, SDA, and PINES. She is a two-time marathoner, avid trail runner, and also enjoys staying active through snowboarding and Pilates.
