The Athlete’s Kitchen at SESMO uses individual/family consultations, group presentations and practical activities such as supermarket tours and group cooking seminars to provide an exciting, all-round approach to nutrition and dietary choices.

Feed the Athlete in You.

Passion, motivation, hard work and success. Whether you are an elite athlete, a recreational runner or someone looking at getting involved in exercise for the first time; these are the elements required to achieve your goals. Food choices and the many different behaviours we display around food not only affect our ability to reach personal goals, but more importantly have a significant impact on our quality of life. Our aim is to share with you our love of good food and appreciation of the choices available to us today while at the same time supporting your individual needs and guiding you down your own successful and more importantly, sustainable nutrition pathway.
