Learn to Fuel the Gymnast
Optimized Nutrition. More Energy. Better Performance.
Hey there, I´m Christina
I am a board certified pediatric and adolescent sports dietitian nutritionist that specializes in nutrition for the gymnast.
My approach to supporting gymnasts, parents, and coaches comes from my own experience as a high-level gymnast that struggled with food and her body. Like many of you, my career was plagued with injuries that were largely related to underfueling, though I was clueless as to the effects my nutrition had on my body and performance.
My mission is to help gymnasts learn to fuel their bodies for optimal performance and longevity in the sport. By learning about that body’s energy needs and how all foods can fit, we can together create a way of eating that supports sports performance and a healthy relationship with food + body.
As a former competitive artistic gymnast, current Developmental Program/NCAA women’s gymnastics judge, and someone who works in the sport of gymnastics each day, I get you. I understand your struggles, the cultural challenges, and pressure that you and our gymnasts face.
