What should I eat before a competition? What protein supplement should I use?
What should I eat in between races? How much protein do I need?
As a parent or coach of teen athletes, you just want to help them be their best.
You see the commitment and how much time they invest in their sport and you are committed to helping them reach their highest performance potential possible.
It’s a competitive world out there and athletes are specializing younger and younger. Perhaps you just aren’t sure how to help them perform their best and get an edge over the competition?
Nutrition to the Rescue
How an athlete eats makes a huge difference in results achieved. You might be wondering how to feed your athlete optimally before big athletic events or after a hard practice? The information on nutrition can be confusing and even conflicting at times.
After spending 30 years in professional sports at various capacities, I know what it takes to thrive as an athlete. Having a competitive advantage is key for any athlete who wants to be the best.
Food can be confusing, especially for teen athletes. When I was a teen Olympian, my coaches would tell me to eat “healthy,” but I had NO idea what that meant.
As athletes, coaches, and parents all know, nutrition plays a significant role in athletic performance, but beyond the call to eat “healthy,” nutrition awareness and education in sports
That’s why I created this program: to educate teen athletes and give them the tools they need to feel great and perform at their highest level possible (in high school, college, and beyond).

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What are the benefits this program gives to my club?
Nutrition education is THE missing link in youth sports. The earlier an athlete learns about the powerful role food plays in their performance, the higher their chances for sustained success.
This program puts your team on the cutting edge of performance in sports. It will also give your athletes information that could save them from years of health and body image issues, simply by understanding the role food plays in their health. Oftentimes, coaches tell their athletes they need to “be more lean” or “get more fit” or “gain some weight,” but without any education to guide the athlete, they are left to figure these things out on their own. I have a very intimate understanding of this, as I have lived it myself.
Giving your athletes this education empowers them for life around the topics, of food, health, and performance nutrition and arms them with tips and strategies used by professional athletes.
For what age range is this program best suited?
This nutrition program is specifically designed for 13 years old and up. I was a teenager myself when I was in the Olympics, and I can only imagine how different my career might have been if I had had this information at a young age. Having said that, under 13 is too young to truly grasp the material and be responsible for it.
My parents are typically in charge of the food in our house. Is this program for them, too?
Absolutely! This program is created specifically for teen athletes AND their parents. In fact, family login credentials come with every membership to the program so that the whole family can support their athlete’s quest for increased performance.

How is this program delivered?
