I recently announced that my performance multi-sport coaching group, Podium Training Systems, is now offering nutrition guidance and services. This all came to be after I became a certified specialist in performance nutrition - I firmly believe that the performance of an athlete comes not only from what he or she does in the pool, on the bike, or at the track, but also from how his or her nutrition plan is structured to properly fuel, build, and recover.
Nutrition is a very individual, and complicated, topic. And to ensure the best quality of services, I’m partnering with JL Fields in this endeavor. JL is a certified vegan lifestyle coach, educator, and author. She’s on the fitness faculty at the Center for Creative Leadership, is the plant-based team leader for Attune Foods, the Education Coordinator for Nourish Organic Juice, and she is also working on her second cookbook. What does all this mean for you, the athlete?
Together, JL and I will work with you to structure, augment, and plan your performance nutrition needs. We can custom build your weekly, or overall, meal plans to ensure you’re getting the proper nutrients as well as the necessary amounts of proteins, fats, and carbs – as well as essential vitamins and minerals - for your individual needs, training, and racing schedule. Furthermore, should you have any dietary restrictions (ethical or medical) we can assure you that you will receive a meal plan or dietary outline that ensures you the intake of all the nutrients that you require for maximum performance.
At the launch of our new service, we offer the following tiers of service. Stay tuned, as these offerings evolve as Podium Training grows and as your wellness needs progress to better health and fitness. Our goal is to serve you.
A one-hour consultation with Coach Dave. During this consultation, we look to get an idea of what your racing and training schedule consists of for the upcoming month, season, or year. We’ll determine what a weekly meal plan might consist of based on that racing and training schedule. Race nutrition options and guidelines can be covered if so desired.
This outline will provide you with optimal percentages of protein, carbs, and fats, which should be included in your diet throughout the various phases of your racing season.
This is a broad level offering. It will cover general nutritional and supplemental needs based your forecasted training schedule as well as your anticipated intensity levels.
A one-hour consultation with Coach Dave. Similar to our Tier 1 offering, get an idea of what your racing and training schedule consists of for the upcoming month, season, or year. We’ll again determine what a weekly meal plan might consist of based on the information provided, and optimal levels of nutrients will be determined. You can also discuss the benefits and supplementation of both essential and non-essential minerals & vitamins.
You’ll then spend 30-60 minutes speaking with JL. She’ll take information provided from your consult with Coach Dave regarding training intensities and needs, dive deeper into your diet and dietary philosophy and restrictions, and will craft a one-week (or more) meal plan with recipes.
While this is a one-time offering, it provides a detailed solution to what a weekly meal plan looks like and offers you the opportunity to use that template of meals and recipes for future weeks.
A one-hour consultation with Coach Dave. As with our Tier 2 offering, you’ll speak with Dave allowing him to get an idea of what your racing and training schedule consists of for the upcoming month, season, or year, and determine optimal levels of proteins, carbs, fats, as well as essential and non-essential supplements.
You’ll also spend one hour with JL as she dives into your current diet, as well as any restrictions you may have. Then, each week, for a period of time that you desire, you’ll receive a meal plan (with recipes) specific to you and your workouts that week. These plans will be delivered each Friday for the upcoming week.
For more information or to schedule a consultation, please contact Coach Dave.
