The Competition Season Nutrition Toolkit is Your Framework for Success this Season

Most gymnasts sabotage their performance at competitions because they don’t have a PLAN.

Do you know how to fuel your gymnast before competition?

Most parents and coaches want to know:

 

  • What gymnasts should/should not eat before a competition 
  • What gymnasts should/should not eat during a competition 
  • How to help the gymnast with “nervous stomach” that refuses to eat before/during competitions
  • How to manage nutrition while traveling and having to eat out all the time
  • How to manage nutrition while staying in a hotel for a while (like a big competitions, college camps, national team camps, etc)
Fueling for Competition Season Toolkit

More than likely, you’re wondering some of these things as well.

Learning how to navigate nutrition while traveling away from home, competing at various times, and more can help your gymnast perform their BEST.

Why do parents want support with fueling their gymnast? 

I feel so much better now that I know how to time meals/snacks around competition for my gymnasts. I want to make sure they have enough energy to do their best!

Mom, Level 8 and 10 Gymnasts

I was able to use the workbook and the mini-course to help my gymnast eat well before competition, even though she’s normally so nervous she refuses to eat! Yay!

Parents, Level 9/HOPES Gymnast

Here’s a snap-shot of what you’ll get inside the Toolkit…

Section 1-Sort through the Nutrition Noise

 

There are a LOT of myths and misinformation in the gymnastics world about fueling the gymnasts.

Parents and coaches hear all sort of nutrition advice that often sounds “right”, but frankly is just about the total opposite of what a high level gymnast needs to be successful.

Section 2-The Nutrition Foundation 

 

The Foundation is a crash course on fueling the gymnast so that you have a good understanding of what needs to be in place before you even think about traveling to a competition. You’ll get our most loved High Level Gymnast Performance Nutrition Cheat sheet to help you quickly make meals/snacks that work wherever you are.

Section 3-Travel Nutrition  

How do you navigate fueling while on the road, in the air, staying at a hotel for days, and having to eat out every meal? Some gurus might tell you that a gymnast should just pack every single meal and snack when they’re on the road to make sure they “eat healthy”. We disagree! It’s 100% possible to make meal/snack choices that leave your gymnast feeling amazing without having to pack up the entire refrigerator.  

 

 

Section 4-Competition Nutrition 

 

Do you ever wonder what you should feed your gymnast when their competition starts at 8AM vs 11AM vs 4PM vs 6PM or something even more random?

We got you covered. In this section we walk you through all different meet time scenarios and how to fuel the night before and the day of. This is invaluable!

 

Section 5-Troubleshooting Nerves + What’s Next

 

Does your gymnast get so nervous before or during a competition that they refuse to eat or drink (or don’t fuel adequately)?

There are some tangible strategies they can implement to help ensure their body is fueled properly for optimal performance so that they are not sluggish and lifeless on the competition floor.

 

BONUS: Competition Season Nutrition Workbook

($149 value) 

This jam-packed PDF guide has everything you need to know about fueling the gymnast during competition. We cover travel guidelines, provide snack and meal/restaurant ideas, walk you through different competition start time scenarios to help you plan meals/snacks, and so much more! 

By the end of this 1 hour workshop, you and your gymnast will have a PLAN for competition nutrition! 

So the big question is….how much does it cost?

Just $57  (valued at $197) 

This really helped me to know how to fuel while we’re traveling all season. Even though the team plans where we eat, we still have to make choices so now I don’t feel so overwhelmed and worried.

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 become 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 International Elite/Olympic) 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 Toolkit!

 

Questions?

Who is this toolkit for?

This mini-course is for upper level gymnasts (optionals/elite track, NCAA) and their parents/coaches. We encourage parents to be present if their gymnast wants to watch. This is also appropriate for compulsory and lower level optional gymnasts. 

If you are a coach or gym owner and you want your gymnasts/parents to have access, please email us at christina@christinaandersonrdn.com

Is this only for female gymnasts?

No! Even though we LOVE pink, all of this content is applicable to gymnasts of any gender (and discipline of gymnastics).

We live in Australia/UK/Europe, etc? Can we still purchase the toolkit?

YES! 

Is this only for gymnasts and parents, or for coaches too?

This workshop is also a great way for coaches to get valuable nutrition education that they can pass on to their gymnasts this season.

What if I have questions or need more help?

Feel free to reach out at christina@christinaandersonrdn.com if you need more support 

What's your guarantee?

This tookit has been tested with 100s of gymnasts and parents, and we feel confident you’ll find great value (even if you’re a season gymnast parent who has been traveling for YEARS). If you don’t learn at least something, shoot us an email.
