Following the basics of how to do it right, and also finding out what works best for you, can help you feel fuelled and energized, rather than bogged down by your food. When we feel good during exercise, we are SO much more likely to go back for more. Eating beforehand also helps prevent the chance of injury by reducing the risk of hunger and low blood sugar during your session (which can negatively impact your focus and concentration).
