Athlete and the Arts Nutrition

The Sports and Human Performance Nutrition DPG has developed a series of fact sheets tailored to performing artists because the physical demands and mental and psychological pressures of performing artist-athletes are similar to those of sports athletes. These resources have been developed in conjunction with Athletes and the Arts (AATA) a young and emerging organization formed to address the health, wellness, and performance needs of performing artist-athletes. The Fact Sheets are created by SHPN Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) and provide timely, accurate, applied information and guidance.

Through a collaborative effort, SHPN and AATA strive to make sure performance athletes are provided with guidance and resources that are accurate to support the high demands of their training and overall health. We have also created a resource list of Registered Dietitian Nutritionists who currently work with performance athletes. For more information click here to see which RDNs specialize in performance nutrition in your area! If you are currently practicing in this arena (with athletes in the arts) and would like to be included, please send an email to yasiansarird@gmail.com.
