Now is the time to make SURE your gymnast is getting what she needs to be successful next season!
It’s fine if your gymnast doesn’t have her period yet…gymnasts don’t get them till later”.
“It’s totally normal for your gymnast to be the shortest one in her class…gymnasts are just smaller than their peers”.
“You want their puberty to be delayed…smaller/lighter flies higher”.
“Puberty messes up all their skills…it’s better for gymnasts if it’s delayed”.
“It’s completely expected for a gymnast to have a huge growth spurt in height and weight…after she retires from the sport”.
As the parent or coach of a gymnast…have you ever heard any of these lines before?
I’m guessing you have, and it’s probably sent you down a rabbit hole of worry and stress.
If you’ve ever wondered “what is normal” when it comes to puberty and body change, you’re not alone!

About Christina Anderson RDN
Hi! I’m Christina Anderson MS, RDN, CSSD, CSP, LD, a board certified pediatric/adolescent registered dietitian sports nutritionist.
Like your gymnast and many of you, I was a competitive gymnast for 9+ years and founded a 100% virtual sports nutrition practice exclusively for gymnasts.
It wasn’t until I became a dietitian nutritionist that I realized that what I had been doing with my nutrition as a gymnast was the complete opposite of what I needed, yet how should I have known? (Especially when that’s what everyone else was doing).
Now I have a healthy relationship with food and my body, and help compulsory through international elite gymnasts (and their parents/coaches!) achieve the things I wasn’t able to in my career.
Since 2017, I’ve had a private practice and worked with 100s of competitive gymnasts (compulsory through Sr Elite/National Team) and their parents —teaching them to fuel for optimal performance without the stress or overwhelm.
We attract gymnasts and parents who are ready to put in the time and effort to optimize nutrition and performance. They are not afraid to challenge beliefs they have about food and nutrition, and challenge cultural norms in the sport. Just because “this is how we’ve always done it” doesn’t make it right.
I’m SO excited you’re here and will see you inside the seminar!
