Auburn Sports Nutrition

Between classes, practice, team meetings, and finding time to study, the lifestyle of a student-athlete creates challenges in meeting nutritional demands. At Auburn University, we believe nutrition has a direct effect in helping our athletes achieve their true potential. For sound nutrition information and guidance, Auburn Sports Medicine offers nutrition education and counseling.

Carly Fancher and a team of sports dietitians coordinate sports nutrition services and work in conjunction with Auburn Athletics trainers, strength & conditioning coaches, and team coaching staffs, as well as other student services. The sports nutrition team works with all of Auburn's 21 teams to help maximize training and recovery through planned nutritional efforts.

Utilizing the athlete-geared menu, the sports dietitians can provide education and individualized recommendations for the student-athlete dependent upon their nutrition goals. 

Fueling Stations

Fueling stations provide snacks to supplement between meals and post-exercise recovery items for student-athletes. The main Athletics’ fueling station is located in Watson Fieldhouse (Olympic Sports Weight Room). Many team facilities also have fueling areas for pre- and post- exercise snacks and recovery.
