To raise awareness among players, the Health Care Section at Sharjah Women’s Sports Club conducted a workshop on ‘Nutrition and Sports Excellence’.

The workshop held on Tuesday covered four aspects, including the need for proper nutrition which enhances performance; nutritional balance; food groups; and specifics of the diet on the day of participating in the match.

During the workshop, Dr. Akram, a nutrition expert at the Sharjah Women’s Sports Club, in the presence of the players of the sports teams of the club, shed light on the most important aspects related to correct nutritional practices and habits.

She also discussed the lack of awareness among athletes regarding proper nutrition, which may unintentionally expose them to wrong practices, affecting their results and reducing their achievement in all competitions in which they participate.

As part of the workshop, participants saw visual presentations of nutritional balance proposals and appropriate food groups for athletes, as well as permanent nutritional health plans that correlate eating habits and movements, so they could achieve the desired levels of fitness and health while reducing calories safely.

The workshop concluded with a panel discussion for the female players during which many questions were raised regarding nutrition, the proper ways to implement health plans, and the biggest difficulties that athletes face, particularly on the days of competition in official competitions.

Fatima Al Hosani, nutrition and health care specialist and member of the athletics team at Sharjah Women’s Sports Club and the UAE athletics team, confirmed that the workshop on ‘Nutrition and Sports Excellence’ covered the fundamentals of proper nutrition and its direct impact on the health, level, and focus of the athlete.

She expressed her happiness with the number of inquiries made by the players in the discussion panel at the end of the workshop, which showed their eagerness to get the most benefit and apply the information presented in a practical way.
