Putting it all together – The Gloucester Rugby Way

Three more exciting speakers are set to be announced in due course.

“Our inaugural conference last year was such a success that there was no question that we wanted this to be an annual event,” commented James Markey, MD of Nutrition X. “Gloucester Rugby, as our valued club partners, were the perfect teammates to make this year’s bigger and better than ever.”

“This year, our focus is very much on practically putting nutrition strategy into action when it comes to how athletes can maximise both health and performance. Nutrition professionals, athletes and those with a keen interest in sports nutrition will certainly benefit, and we’re incredibly excited to be able to show how this can be put into practice with a conference menu designed specifically by Will Carvalho and James Hudson.”

James Hudson also commented:

“We’re delighted to be teaming up with Nutrition X to help deliver this conference. In an elite performance environment, nutrition underpins everything we do and hope to achieve.

“What we’d like to do on the day is show how we put this into practice on a daily basis, with the help of Gloucester Rugby’s Performance Chef Will Carvalho who will demonstrate that eating to achieve performance goals can be delicious as well as healthy.”
