Head Coach, High Level Gymnastics Club (CO)
Christina helped our athletes and parents understand the importance 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. We were very satisfied as a gym, especially with how the four sessions were broken up into bite-sized content for our parents/athletes.
