You’ve heard your gymnast must “eat clean” to support her gymnastic goals but you find that this is hard to stick with or worse, leaves your gymnast hangry and with lower energy levels 

Your gymnast is tired and sore all the time and it breaks your heart; you’ve tried chiropractors, supplements, and physical therapists, but nothing has worked 

You know your gymnast is not eating enough before or after practice, often skipping meals only to “overdo” later and you’re not sure how to help her find balance 

You’ve noticed your gymnast is frequently and easily irritated; you ask how practice went and you’re met with silence or a bad attitude 

Your gymnast has been plagued by injuries, fatigue, and you’re wondering if something is missing from their nutrition 

Coaching is for you if...

If we're a good fit, you’ll be invited to join my the client portal to sign paperwork and get your first session scheduled. 


We’ll chat via email or hop on a brief 20-minute phone or video call with you and your gymnast if needed to chat about what’s going on, what you’re looking for, and see if we’re a good fit to work together!

// Mom, Level 9 Gymnast

Nutrition is such a game changer. When everyone is doing the same hours and same skills, the adequately fueled athlete is ahead of the rest. We enjoyed the group sessions and the 1:1 were a lot more helpful than I was expecting. We are empowered with tools to have a great season. Last season we had the team talk and implemented those strategies and our gymnast had an amazing season. This year we wanted to build on that and focus more because the return on investment was a such a good one.

Christina is a true expert and she wants to see your athlete succeed.

// Mom, Level 6 Gymnast

The aspect of the program that I loved best is that it doesn’t teach you a specific menu or diet or schedule—it teaches you tools that you can use to tailor fueling for performance to your daughter, family, and lifestyle. It taught me about flexibility as much as it taught my daughter about the importance of fueling to prevent injury and perform well. We are excited to continue to see progress as we put more and more tools to use!

My 10-year-old daughter feels more confident in choosing her pre-workout snacks, is more diligent about eating a carb snack during longer training periods and is faithful with eating a recovery meal after training. Knowing that she is providing the fuel she needs to sustain her energy throughout the workout gives me peace of mind that she is taking care of her body now and setting the stage for a strong future.

I appreciate how Christina empowered my daughter to take control of her nutrition.

// Mom, Level 8 Gymnast

I am so impressed with this program!!! Seeing my daughter feel better is 100% worth it!!! She felt hopeless before we started. She was always having what we now know are repercussions of being under fueled! Her tendonitis is no longer bothering her, she has more energy than I have ever seen her have, and feels great before, during, and after practice! She is no longer cranky and tired all the time! Her attitude has changed remarkably!! She is still a teenager at times, but this is manageable!! Her grades have improved, too!!

My daughter tells everyone how much better she feels. I can’t say thank you enough!

// Mom, Level 8 Gymnast

We joined the VIP program to help make sure my daughters are getting the necessary nutrition and to help address nagging injuries. It’s been very helpful in not only learning fueling strategies but more importantly addressing underlying issues not only impacting gymnastics but also overall health. We now have more of a plan and tools and can definitely say I am 100% on board with the importance of labs!

Christina does a great job of explaining the science behind the why and how that ties into the way they feel.
