The George Mason Athletic department will introduce Peak Performance, a sports specific dining experience, beginning this semester at Southside dining hall. The meals, planned by the Mason's sports dietician, are specifically tailored to the demands of the elite athlete.
"This is another step the Center for Sports Performance is taking in our commitment to removing all the barriers for our student-athletes to succeed," said Assistant AD for the Center for Sports Performance, Debi Corbatto. "Nutrition is a key factor as it relates to athletic performance and the foods that will be provided at Peak Performance will help in their training regimen and take them to the level they want to go."
The new initiative is a sports nutrition component in the George Mason Center for Sports Performance. The Center is designed to provide the student-athletes with the resources to achieve the highest levels of performance ability, where they can reach their full fitness potential. The services under the Center's umbrella include sports medicine, strength and conditioning, Mason SMART (Sports Medicine Assessment Research and Testing) lab and sports nutrition.
The Center for Sports Performance mission is to utilize cutting-edge research and performance methodology to encourage our elite athletes' ethical enhancement, athleticism and quality of life while representing George Mason University at the highest levels of competition. The Center for Sports Performance addresses all the key areas of physical development and enhanced performance, including speed, power, strength, flexibility and conditioning.
Committed to increasing the performance ability of the student-athletes, Mason Athletics will dedicate the Field House weight room to intercollegiate athletic teams only beginning this semester. The exercise and training facilities located in the RAC, Skyline and the Aquatics center are available to the students and faculty/staff and fit the general needs of the George Mason community.
