Dr. Burgess is an expert in sports science and nutrition, with extensive experience in education, training, sports science and fitness coaching for several top Australian national and regional sporting organisations.
“I was really excited about sharing the latest research on the timing of food and exercise as well as how to eat and exercise for each individual. Everyone is different and it was great to help people understand what works for them.”
Dr. Darren Burgess
As a specialist in sports science and nutrition, and through his role at Port Adelaide Football Club and current role as the High Performance Manager with Arsenal Football Club, Dr. Burgess has used the Herbalife Nutrition Wellness Tour as a platform to share his wealth of knowledge and assist everyday Australians in easily embracing a healthy active lifestyle.
Dr. Burgess also shared his journey and success working in high performance, focusing on tailoring nutrition programs to specific health goals. He also discussed the latest research behind breakfast.
“It’s well-known that breakfast sets you up for the day but I think most Australians feel like they’re too busy to have a quality, healthy breakfast. It’s important to make sure you start your day in the right way and kick start your metabolism” Dr. Darren Burgess added.
Together, Herbalife Nutrition and Dr. Burgess are on a mission to make the world healthier and happier.
