Meredith and Alex come from a background of sports and sports performance. They both learned early on the positive impact nutrition can have on performance. They have over 10 years of coaching experience within the sport of CrossFit. Not only has this experience helped develop their communication style, but it also allowed them to see the very large impact nutrition and lifestyle can have on the every day exerciser and the performance athlete alike.

As with CrossFit, the needs of the beginner and professional athlete vary by degree, not kind. They have seen the same principles that work for elite athletes also work for a recreational exerciser. They want to bring this practice to anyone looking to better themselves in fitness and in health.

With a background in engineering, I take a scientific approach to performance and nutrition which I combine with my experience as an athlete and coach to help people achieve their fitness goals.

A scientist and engineer by trade, I spent six years working in research and development within the biopharmaceutical industry. This experience taught me to think and observe objectively and cultured my keen attention to detail. In addition to being a lifelong student, I am a lifelong athlete as well! The combination of these two passions has led me to where I am as an athlete and coach. I have competed at The CrossFit Games and many times at Regionals. I was ranked top 10 as a USAW Olympic weightlifter (53 & 58kg) with multiple appearances in the American Open and Nationals. I have a particular interest in the performance impact of sports nutrition as well as the mental component of coaching and training.

I have seen first hand the benefits that a practical and appropriate diet can have on performance. It is my goal to share my knowledge and experience in a way that helps people fuel their bodies and rebuild their relationship with food.

I have always had an interest in sport performance and a strong desire to learn about performance nutrition and health to apply to my own life. As a nutrition and lifestyle coach, I use my knowledge to help others reach their own health and fitness goals.

I have always been interested in human behaviour. The fact that there are many facets involved in a person’s relationship with food, makes nutrition coaching a gratifying and desirable field.

I am a lifelong athlete, having competed in a variety of high level sports including alpine ski racing, golf and soccer. I am now dedicated to the sport of CrossFit. I have competed at The Crossfit Games and many times at Regionals.

My own experience in sport and life has helped me realize how important it is to fuel your body properly. I have experienced significant benefits from eating basic, healthy food in the right amount to support my lifestyle. I was able to greatly improve my sport performance, health, daily wellbeing and relationship with food. It’s true, you are what you eat.

It is incredibly rewarding to help others experience the positive effects of eating right and eating the right amount, while also maintaining balance and flexibility in doing so.
