What our amazing alumni are saying...

You [Christina] make nutrition simple and straightforward. I finally have so many questions answered about what’s healthy and what’s not. I feel like I can sort through the “noise” myself and decide what’s best for me and my family. Cathy, mom of level 7 and 9 gymnasts, Oklahoma 

Christina helped our athletes and parents understand the importantce of nutrition by teaching them about what they are fueling their body with and how that impacts performance/life. Her nutrition material was excellent and delivered in a concise fashion. Jeff, dad of a level 10/elite gymnast (D1 commit 2021)

We took the course first because we wanted our two gymnasts, levels 8 (age 13) & level 10 (age 15), to gain some first hand knowledge from a registered dietitian that not only specializes in gymnastics nutrition but also was a gymnast herself and someone the girls could relate to. We also had 1:1 coaching sessions after we completed the course which allowed us to answer questions we had and gain a plan targeted just to our girls and their individual needs.

Christina provided excellent information about nutrition related to food, vitamins, supplements, hydration, sleep and injury prevention while focusing on how to properly fuel the body, refuel during and after practice/meets as well as recovery. As a parent that sat in on the course with the girls, it was very informative and helped me provide them with the tools (from the nutrition side) they need to be successful.

We would highly recommend Christina and the course to other gymnasts and families. Her knowledge of gymnastics and nutrition make a win/win combination. It’s not always easy to find someone that understands both and how they intertwine. You can feel her love of the topic and her passion to help gymnasts succeed!

Jamie, mom of level 8 and 10 gymnasts

The course gave us [parents] the tools to address our concerns about our young competitive gymnast’s nutrition. Christina takes a realistic, scientific approach and yet is able to explain complex nutrition concepts in a way that parents can understand. She is able to explain confusing nutrition concepts at a level that makes sense to us and our gymnast, which makes the strategies easier to implement. Karis, mom of level 7 gymnast

Christina helped our daughter develop a nutrition plan for training and competition that worked around her numerous food allergies. Her plan provided both nutritious and delicious foods that we could all enjoy. Roberta, mom of Level 10 gymnast (D1 commit 2021), Oklahoma
