E3 is not just a unique opportunity to be coached by the best players and coaches in the country, we want you to leave that bit more clued up as to what it takes to be a professional rugby player. And even if you don’t, hopefully you’ll have a better understanding of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle when you leave.
You can’t expect to drive a Ferrari all day on diesel and whilst the body is an amazing machine, it’s imperative that you put the right fuel in, to get high performance out.
With the help of some of the countries leading catering experts at Thomas Franks and Yeo Valley the UK’s No.1 and favourite dairy brand, Elektrik3 are proud to present Eat Elektrik. A high performance nutrition programme aimed at active people who don’t just want their food to taste great, but make them feel great as well. Our lunch and snack menu’s have been carefully put together with the help of England Rugby nutritionist Matt Lovell and expertly prepared and dished up by our chefs at 3663.
“I am delighted to be involved in the very first Elektrik3 event– The Olly Barkley Rugby Academy and was honoured when Olly invited me to design the menu. Having worked with the England Rugby Squad as a specific rugby nutritionist since early 2003, I have also worked with many professional rugby players from other rugby playing nations and cannot stress the importance of nutrition enough to an athlete. What you eat before and after training and indeed before and after a full 80 minutes of rugby is as important as your training schedule. I hope you all not only eat some delicious and healthy food over the three day course but also learn the value nutrition has on your journey to becoming a great rugby player.”
Matt Lovell, Elite Sports Nutritionist
If you’re going to make healthy eating a habit then it’s crucial that it tastes good too, so all Eat Elektrik’s food has been designed not only with proteins, carbohydrates and all the required vitamins in mind, but more importantly, it has to leave you wanting to eat it again.
Eat Elektrik – be Elektrik. Simple!
