WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING

Christina helped our gymnast properly fuel her body with foods that she already enjoys. We love that Christina takes a “real life” approach to nutrition, no weird “super healthy” recipes that no gymnast is going to eat.

Her meal/snack ideas make it so simple to prepare food for the day, something that I already don’t love doing. 

Mom, Level 9 Gymnast

We’ve been working with Christina for a few months after we found her through a FB group when I posted about all my gymnast’s health issues. To say she has been amazing is an understatement. We still have some things to work through but Christina is a wealth of knowledge and her meetings with my daughter have been therapeutic in so many ways. I and a RN, who also has an undergraduate degree in nutrition and was still completely blindsided by my daughters nutritional needs. If your child is struggling with stamina, or really any physical / mental issues it would be worthwhile to chat with Christina.

Mom, Level 10 Gymnast

The first month of working together, I started noticing my daughter had more energy at school, and at home. she was just more present and not so zombie-like on her rest days. So that was great. I was really happy.
Then the last few weeks, she was coming out of gymnastics after x2 training a day smiling and singing in the car and when I would have a little look at her in the gym she was floating around and just happy.
AND THEN finally it happened, her coach told me how she noticed my daughters change in energy at gym. she wasn’t a zombie at that second practice and just had more strength to give by the end (love that intra workout fuel)
I’m so happy with this program.
Mom, Jr International Elite

My daughter feels safe and connected, not afraid to speak to Christina about her food and body image struggles as a high level gymnast. We love Christina as her nutrition advice is realistic and backed up by science.

Mom, Level 9 Gymnast

This been a game changer for my daughter. She loves her 1 on 1 meetings with Christina. My daughter used to fight me on fueling her body and we also were doing some things that weren’t helpful without knowing it. The adjustments Christina has made to her diet, and the hope she has given her now have my daughter doing her best to properly fuel and hydrate her body on her own without my constant prompting (aka nagging)  I cannot recommend getting your gymnast in with her enough!

Mom, Level 10 Gymnast

Christina helped us and our gymnast learn better nutritional habits to aid in the prevention of, and recovery from, injuries related to gymnastics. We were able to create and IMPLEMENT a plan for mid-practice fueling (currently no time allotted during 4.5 hour sessions) and post-practice recovery which has been huge!
