Burgess has CISSN certification as a Sports Nutritionist and a Ph.D. in Health and Human Performance. We are really excited to have Victoria as our sports nutrition expert. We’ve always taken the position that considering every possible angle in preparation is the key to suHccess in sports. What we eat fuels our performance and our recovery from hard training. It’s an important part of a “no stone left unturned approach” to our preparation. Having an expert, who is actually a high-performance paddler herself, provides our members with quality nutritional advice. This will make a huge difference to many paddlers who wish to get to the next level—no matter where they are—from beginner to professional. Burgess is a resident of South Florida.
