Published: 4 January, 2018 - 1:41 pm

York City Knights have chosen specialist sports nutrition provider Nutrition X as their official nutrition partner for the upcoming season, following a successful partnership during the 2016 & 2017 League seasons.

Nutrition X will be working closely with the players and Strength and Conditioning Coach Mark Helme to supply a range of supplements to meet the nutritional needs of the players throughout the season, helping to maximise training and performance both on and off the pitch.

Products set to help boost the energy, performance and recovery of each of the York City Knights players include BCAA Plus, a unique formulation of amino acids and creatine to improve muscle recovery and promote lean muscle tissue, and Big Whey – a protein powder formulated specifically to assist in muscle recovery, the rebuilding of muscle tissue and improve muscle tone.

Importantly, each Nutrition X product is batch-tested and Informed-Sport approved, meaning both players and coaches can be safe in the knowledge that they are compliant with substances listed on the WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) banned substance list.

Mark Helme, Strength and Conditioning Coach at York City Knights RLFC, commented on the partnership:

“I am really pleased that we have a partnership with Nutrition X for the 2018 season. As a club, we strive to create the best possible environment for our athletes to achieve their optimum performance, through professional coaching and a vibrant culture. As a team, we place nutrition extremely highly as part of that professional culture, as it maximises the efforts our players give in their training.”

“We understand the demands of Semi-professional sport and recognise the challenges our athletes face. We have created a partnership with Nutrition X to help provide sports nutrition to our players as a way of helping them overcome these challenges and perform to their best ability. Nutrition X were the first choice for us, as they share our values of integrity and competitiveness and we hope that this partnership will help us achieve success this season.”

James Markey, Managing Director at Nutrition X, also commented:

“It was fantastic getting to know the team throughout the past two seasons and it goes without saying that we’re thrilled to be working with York City Knights RLFC again this year. It’s an exciting time for the Club, and we’re confident that our supplements will help each and every one of the players ensure that their nutrition programmes are working effectively for them; ultimately helping them to achieve optimum performance during training and on the pitch.

“We’re really looking forward to following the Club over the coming season and wish them the very best of luck.”
