The goal of our nutrition programs is to help educate clients on the responsibility they must take in their own lives and provide the best, most reliable care.
Our nutrition programs establish a firm foundation for nutritional insight and application based on the client’s health-specific needs. The specific programs we provide include an Anti-Inflammatory Protocol, Gut Protocol, Hormone Imbalance Protocol, Weight-Loss Protocol, and Maintenance Protocol.

Our nutrition programs establish a firm foundation for nutritional insight and application based on the client’s health-specific needs. A health assessment will be performed upon signing with a Health Specialist which will determine the client’s specific need for various nutritional categories including proper fat intake, carbohydrate intake, and protein intake. This assessment will also determine how quickly the client burns calories (metabolism) and how their diet must be adjusted accordingly to prevent deficiencies.
Once an initial health assessment is completed, your Health Specialist will be able to put together a program packet that will outline the steps you and your trainer will take to nutritionally repair, improve proper gut, immune, and/or other organ function, and avoid deficiencies. Each program includes weekly menu plans with meal preparation tips, shopping lists divided by section, recipes, and weekly check-ins and periodic re-assessments with your trainer to ensure that you continue to improve nutritionally.
Clients will also gain a better understanding of how vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other energy and non-energy yielding nutrients work together to provide proper nutritional value as well as how metabolism (how quickly calories burn) plays a part in everything. The client and trainer will also discuss free radicals and their effect on the body and how to avoid them. Finally, clients will gain a better understanding of how deficiencies in any of the above essentials can be a detriment to overall healthy living.

Upon signing with a Health Specialist, clients will have to fill out an informed consent document as well as a New Client Health Assessment Form and Behavior Questionnaire. These forms will help the trainer properly decide what type of nutritional plan to put the client on as well as inform the trainer of any preexisting health concerns.
When combined with a Fitness Program, a Nutrition Program will be more tailored to suit the client’s current physical fitness schedule, pre and post-training fueling needs, and the specific program selected (i.e. weight-loss, prenatal, athletic performance, etc.). Though we do recommend that these two programs go hand-in-hand, our Nutrition Programs are a great option for anyone apart from a specific Fitness Program and can be utilized by all ages.
