Kansas Athletics is committed to developing the all around athlete. One key component to this development is building proper performance nutrition habits. The Sports Medicine Department at the University of Kansas believes nutrition plays an integral role in helping our student athletes realize their true potential on the field of play and in the classroom.
A student athlete’s demanding schedule of practices, team meetings, classes, and studying/tutoring can make it difficult to adequately meet the nutritional needs required for optimal performance. To help our athlete’s meet these nutritional challenges with sound nutrition information and guidance the KU Sports Medicine Department offers nutrition education and counseling by a full-time sports nutritionist. Aaron Carbuhn, MS, MS, RD, LD, SCCC directs the sports nutrition services and as a part of the KU Sports Medicine staff, works in conjunction with strength & conditioning, team coaching staffs, and additional student services.
Each athlete’s nutritional needs differ in accordance to the demands of their sport, genetics, and performance goals. Therefore, having an individual nutrition game plan is crucial for optimum performance. The Jayhawk Performance Nutrition program is committed to meeting these individual needs by optimizing your diet for goals such as achieving an ideal body composition, safe weight gain or loss, enhanced recovery, steady energy levels, and injury/illness prevention.
