Fitness & Nutrition

Nutrition is key when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and achieving your fitness goals. Eating nutritious foods provides your body with the energy and nutrients it needs to power through a workout. Nutrition also helps you recover from a workout, so you can continue to make progress. Working out at Coop’s by attending one of our fitness classes will help you to exercise and build muscle.

It’s also important to supplement your diet with quality supplements. Supplements can help you reach your fitness goals faster by providing your body with additional nutrients that you may not be getting from your diet alone. Some common supplements for athletes include protein powder, creatine, and omega-3 fatty acids. See our prior blog post on workout nutrition for the best refresher and to help keep your day to day nutrition even with you fitness goals.
