Sports & Exercise Nutrition Manual

by Scott McHale

Learn how nutrition affects health and fitness, and what you need to achieve your fitness goals and improve your health and vitality.

Full Description:

I originally wrote this nutrition manual to give to clients that had done one of my consultations to help cement the information they had learned, but over the last 13 years, it has evolved into something much more than that! This manual is not only for my clients to refresh their memory, but for anyone who hasn’t done one of my consultations who really wants to get the best out of nutrition to change their body composition, improve their performance in training or sport or most importantly, improve health and vitality.

Back in 2007, I created a consultation to educate my clients on nutrition and how it affects health and exercise, and how crucial it is in achieving their goals. At that time, I had been a personal trainer for 2 years, and realised it didn’t matter how well I trained my clients and how often they trained, it was impossible to get them the goals they wanted unless they changed their nutrition, which usually also meant a change in lifestyle. Of course, I was already advising on nutrition and lifestyle, but it didn’t seem enough to get them to respect the importance of nutrition and to make the serious changes needed for the results they were looking for.

The consultation I created takes up to 3 hours, but once completed, all my clients are educated and armed with the tools they need to help them achieve their goals. This new knowledge is very inspiring for them; they understand the science of how it all works physiologically and inspires an eagerness to start and make the necessary changes. I find I get much better results from my clients by educating them first, so they understand exactly what needs be done and why; this works much better than just telling them what to do. It’s important to educate my clients on the biomechanics of the body while training them, so they understand how to execute movements correctly and the importance of good structural health. Equally important is the need to educate them on nutrition, as that is done away from my guidance and watchful eye and must be done throughout every day with precision, no matter what the situation is.

Educating my clients makes them successful in achieving their goals, which, in turn, has built the success of my business. This manual was written to help educate anyone interested in improving their health; it explains clearly and simply how nutrition affects health and fitness, and what it really takes to reach not only their fitness goals, but to improve their health and vitality!

Recommended by a family member, I decided to try Scotts PT, as I was looking to get "healthier".From my first meeting with Scott, I learnt something new and have continued to learn from my brilliant (and unbelieveably strong) trainer / coach Patrick.Small, yet big enough. Friendly, yet professional. In a nutshell, and most importantly, they know their stuff - and are good blokes.

I’ve been training with Scott for over a year now. His coaching style is highly motivational and fun, but above all he has a great talent for helping people push past any self-imposed limits to achieve their fullest potential! His training style is also personally tailored to each individual – taking a holistic approach to health, overall wellbeing and fitness - whilst balancing it against individual circumstances and goals. I’ve personally managed to achieve a significant body re-composition during the short time I’ve been training with Scott (gaining 9.7kg of lean mass whilst losing 8.4kg of fat), and have also benefitted from a valuable education on the importance of diet (and forming positive habits) that will serve me for life. The energy of the gym itself is a very inspiring environment to train in, set in a discreet location - benefitting from up to date equipment and facilities.... I can thoroughly recommend Scott and all his team!read more

You get the train like a celeb and a very good price. You have your own private PT and they look after everything from training (in detail preventing injury and long game) to your diet and mindset. Everything is tracked.They go above and beyond and I recommend Patrick who is a great a strength and conditioning coach.. who takes his job very serious and cares about his clients a lot. He is super passionate about getting you to succeed.

I am beyond happy with my experience with Scott’s personal training. When I was looking for a personal trainer I had a lot of mixed feelings about the industry itself as I encountered a lot of PTs who seemed to only care about how much and when you can pay them. Then I found Scott. Scott truly listens to your needs, finds out everything about your lifestyle, hobbies, work schedule, eating habits, health condition. He measures your needs and abilities and finds you the best fit in terms of his pick of PT for you and your diet. He gave me numerous useful tips and made me feel really well taken care and valuable as a client.

Scott's personal training, what a great place to be apart of, training facilities are really good. I have been coached by Patrick for a while now, always great communication and always going out of his way to make sure I am keeping on track every week. 10kgs down and a lot more to go 👊

Alex personal trainer is professional, and help you to reach your target! Thank you for adapting my training to my knee injury, and general poor physical condition in such a professional manner, I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and acquaintances.After flirting with alternative personal trainer providers, I ended up with Alex to get the job done. I have gone through countless trainers and none had the dedication and passion for fitness and physical health than that of Alex's.Based on my experience so far, after more than a year into my fitness programme, if anyone is considering choosing a personal trainer, then I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alex.Belle

Had an excellent series of sessions with Patrick, whol helped me with a great combination of self workouts and technique based PT sessions. I was able to build good lifting techniques, and a lot strength in a relatively short period of time, and Patrick's enthusiasm and passion was obvious throughout.Scott also provided excellent nutrition guidance at the start to support those training goals. The gym itself is really well equipped and there was never more than two people in there when I trained which is a much better experience than PT in a normal gym.
