Sport performance nutrition
On Your Mark Nutrition provides various packages designed for personalized nutrition that maximize strength, power, endurance, agility and speed while optimizing body composition, health and longevity based on the goals and training cycle of the athlete.
The Initial Session includes an assessment of lifestyle, short- and long-term goals, current and desired body composition, eating habits, training schedule, competition schedule, current nutritional status, menstrual cycle (for females), medications and supplement use. Plans are created based upon goals, training cycle, menstrual cycle, blood work, physiological tests, nutrient and supplementation needs. All plans include nutritional strategies that fight to prevent disease, improve body composition and enhance overall well-being that will craft a healthier lifestyle to support training, competition and recovery. The plans are intended to increase the athlete's nutritional knowledge, enhance their nutritional status and provide guidance, feedback, motivation and support.

What To Expect
On Your Mark Nutrition emphasizes on providing clients with personalized nutrition. No cookie-cutter or pre-developed Cleanses/Detoxes/Diets, etc. that contemporary Dietitians use. The On Your Mark Nutrition template is customized and evolves to the needs of the client. Typically, people hire a sports nutritionist for a big goal, which usually requires behavior change. Because On Your Mark Nutrition believes in quality over quantity, one-time consultations are not offered as this does not lead to sustainable change and thorough, quality care. At least 4 weeks is required as this allows for better guidance, feedback, motivation and support to ensure that client's thoroughly understand their nutritional programming.
Sports Nutrition for Female Physiology: An Added value
Specifically for females, nutritional needs will be tailored to your physiology - meaning, performance will be optimized during each phase of the menstrual cycle based on hormone (e.g., estrogen, progesterone) levels. Depending on where you are at in your cycle, estrogen and progesterone will affect your plasma volume (e.g., amount of body water, which impacts hydration), ability to work hard at a high intensity and training adaptations. Nutritional guidance will be provided to make the most out of your performance and recovery by working with the hormone levels.
All packages are customized. After discussing your goals and needs, a package will be tailored for you.
Package options include:
4, 8 or 12 weeks
If you do not live locally, a remote option is available via phone and email.
