Herbalife Nutrition, a global nutrition company whose purpose is to make the world healthier and happier, recently sponsored the special seminar on "Sports Nutrition and Body Performance Training" held by the Football Association of Thailand (FAT), for the second consecutive year. Speaking to top physiotherapists and sports science experts dedicated to the country's football teams, Dr. Dana Ryan, Director, Sports Performance and Education of Herbalife Nutrition, shared her experience in sports nutrition and explained how to enhance performance, concentration and overall ability during training and competition. She also delivered valuable pointers on elevating performance levels, and talked about her advocacy to inspire more people to lead a healthy, active lifestyle.

The seminar at the 50-Year Chalermprabaramee Building also shed light on Herbalife Nutrition's expertise in sports nutrition as a science and the company's long-standing support of football in the country.

"It was a pleasure to meet with Thailand's most accomplished football trainers and therapists, and to talk to them about balancing sports nutrition with intensive training programs to enable their teams to win and make the dreams of young footballers nationwide come true," said Dr Ryan. "Their teams work hard and give 100% effort, but it is equally important to get the right nutrition at the right time, so the body can be properly fueled during workouts and competition."

"I believe in focusing on individual performance in order to maximize the team's performance that will lead them to victory," she added. "Being aware of the importance and basic principles of sports nutrition can be a game-changer for athletes as well as for all sports and exercise enthusiasts, if they understand the importance of making it part of their training regimen."

Dr Ryan has scientifically developed nutrition and sport performance programs for leading football teams in the world, to help keep the athletes in optimum shape and ready for their matches. She has also worked with members of the Los Angeles Galaxy, Barcelona FC and Liga in Ecuador, football players training for the National Football League Combine and others in support of their nutrition programs.

Mr. Suphot Rittipichaiwat, General Manager, Herbalife Nutrition Thailand said "We would like to thank the Football Association of Thailand for the superb cooperation and coordination for this enlightening event. I am confident that the fruitful relationship between Herbalife Nutrition and FAT will be beneficial to the country's football community, and the achievements of our players will inspire young Thais to maintain a healthy balance between sports nutrition, exercise and discipline, so that they can achieve their full potential and reach their goals."

After the morning session with Dr Dana, the Chairman of FAT's Medical Committee Sr. Gp. Capt. Paisal Chantarapitak, presented the FIFA 11+ program. He then conducted the workshop with sports medicine experts from the Bangkok Academy of Sports and Exercises Medicine (BASEM), emphasizing the importance of warm-up cool-down exercises to lessen the risk of injuries.
