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, AU Sports Medicine offers nutrition education and counseling by a sports dietitian.
 
Scott Sehnert, MS, RD, CSSD, CSCS coordinates sports nutrition services and works in conjunction with the Auburn athletics trainers, strength & conditioning coaches, and team coaching staffs, as well as other student services. Sehnert is a registered dietitian and exercise physiologist who works with all of Auburn's 21 teams to help maximize the training and recovery through planned nutritional efforts. Sehnert's nutritional emphasis on performance and health includes:
 
Plan and design the new Wellness Kitchen Training Table (set to open in 2014) which will focus on freshly
   prepared food, lean proteins and will cater to many dietary restrictions.

The Bod Pod is the latest technology in body composition testing. It uses air displacement to measure body volume and then predict percentage of body fat. It requires you sit calmly in the Bod Pod for less than one minute wearing a swimwear or spandex clothing and a cap. It is highly accurate, very easy and provides instant results.
