Nutrition for Golf
A Great Solution for COVID Concerns
With many schools now mandating all athletes bring their own food to practice or parents proactively monitoring what their child is eating while on school grounds during this pandemic, our Fuel PACs provide both a safe and convenient alternative to team communal meals or food prepared on-location. Our boxed nutrition kits provide prepared ready-to-eat whole food snacks & beverage that address several important needs during this era of COVID, including:
- Pre-packaged products eliminate contamination
- No person-to-person or person-to-product contact from on-site preparation or sharing
- Shipped directly to your door
- All our products are high quality food & beverages, helping to keep the immune system strong
The Training Demands of Youth Golf
For many people, a nice relaxing round of golf on the weekend is what they look forward to all week. After all, golf isn't a sport right? It's a lifestyle and a leisure activity. Golfers aren't "athletes" so why would they need to train like one? At Carbon Athletics, we don't fall into this line of thinking. Golfers (weekend warriors all the way up to the best on the pro tour) are ABSOLUTELY athletes. And as with any sport, training with nutrition will make you better. Just because there's not a ton of running or jumping on the golf course does not mean the sport itself doesn't take a great deal of athleticism.
Whether you're looking to hit the ball further, have better touch on your short game, increase your endurance over multiple rounds or you just want to be a more consistent member of your foursome, golf training that utilizes a nutrition plan can help you get there.
The Importance of Nutrition on Golf Performance
While distance off the tee may be the first thing you think about, it shouldn't be the only thing you're focused on. Accuracy (to hit fairways and greens in regulation), club head speed (to get you out of those rough spots and sand traps) and swing consistency will all help you lower your handicap. Golf training should naturally be more "golf-centric". As such, you should be thinking about your endurance (even if you're a cart-only player) and your core strength. After every swing you make, even your practice swings, utilizes your core. Either on the course or in the gym, a golf training program that utilizes nutrition will help you make the best improvement in your areas of focus.
Whether you're looking to win your club championship or just improve your score the couple rounds a month you play, consuming the right nutrition while training can make the difference the next time you hit the links. Resistance Wear vests are designed with your golf training in mind. Hit your driver further and with more accuracy off the tee, get through long rough with your irons, explode out of a wet sand trap or have a soft touch with your lob wedge. You'll get the most out of your workout with Carbon Athletics Fuel PACs.

Team Options Too
Coaches, we know you have your hands full with every possible responsibility that comes with running a team. Player nutrition usually ends up being lower on your list of priorities. But now we’ve made it super-easy for you. You don’t have to worry about what to feed your players, make runs to fast food restaurants between games or have players tell you they don’t feel good after eating. Carbon Athletics’ Team Solutions provide super-economical, bulk-packed nutrition for your team. Essentially, we provide you with dietitian-selected whole food and beverages assembled by “pre-game”, “in-game” and “post-game” items accompanied with instructions on what to eat and drink at the appropriate time during gameday. On top of that, if you prefer for your parents to purchase for you players, we set you up with an online team portal for parent ordering. Every purchase made through your team portal generates a rebate for your team. So, in no time at all, you could be feeding your team for free.
