On Sunday, June 8 from 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m., Irina Belfer-Lehat, RD of Nutrition Solutions will host "Elite Tennis Players: Get Ready for the Hot Summer With Proper Nutrition" workshop at 705 Middle Neck Road in Great Neck, N.Y. At this session, Irina will offer complete nutrition services for all ages and nutritional needs. 

Proper nutrition is one of the most important components of an athlete's performance. Just like having a tennis and fitness coach, a competitive tennis player needs to consult with a sports nutritionist. With Nutrition Solutions, the mission of Irina Belfer-Lehat is to empower youth and adults to make healthy choices through nutrition education in a friendly and non-competitive group environment that offers fun and creative ways to learn about nutrition. 

The tennis diet and hydration before, during and after a match will be highlighted. Tennis is the type of sport that involves intense physical activity, that goes on for hours until the final point is won. The only thing a player can control, however, is being nutritionally prepared. Learn how to avoid fatigue, cramps and improve your stamina! Attend this event and learn how to properly fuel, hydrate and recover after your match! Complete analyses of sports drinks included! 

The cost to attend this event is $30 per person (a 20 percent discount for siblings and 10 percent off if you bring a friend). Register via www.irinalehat.com, e-mail irina@irinalehat.com or text/call (917) 769-8031.
