Nutritional Support at Momentum Training

Posted 29th October 2013 by Jenna Fisher

It is widely known that nutritional advice can provide guidance on how to build muscle, increase endurance, lose fat and aid recovery. Equally important however, is that it can also help to support your body against other underlying factors that may hinder your performance in the gym i.e. gastrointestinal disorders (bloating/constipation/diarrhoea/candida/IBS etc.), fatigue, anxiety, stress, inflammation, frequent colds and infections, urinary tract infections, PMS, headaches, sub optimal detoxification/toxicity, hormonal problems etc. All of the body’s systems can be supported by optimal nutrition and lifestyle/environmental changes.

Our general health and wellbeing have a huge impact on the success of achieving our goals in the gym. Nutritional intake is key to how we function, both mentally and physically. The trillions of cells in or bodies are dependent on nutrients and the function of our tissues, organs and systems require our cells to be in optimal health.

Jenna has completed a diploma in nutrition and she is keen to help educate our Momentum members on the best nutrition for your individual goals.  Jenna will be available for food diary reviews and nutritional therapy from the 1st November.

Food diary review: for general guidance on changes you can make to your nutritional intake to help you to achieve your goals. As introductory offer appointments in November this will be £20 (£30 thereafter).

Nutritional therapy: a deeper assessment to address any specific issues you have had in achieving optimal health. This involves a comprehensive consultation and personalised plan. The initial appointment is £60 and, if needed, follow ups will be £30.

Please email Jenna at jenna@momentum-training.com if you are interested in an appointment. Jenna will email you the paperwork to complete in advance and we can fix a date.

Food diary review: Please complete a food and drink diary (template will be provided) for one week if possible, three days if not (two typical weekdays and one weekend day). If you can, please note the time of the meal and how you feel in the hour afterwards i.e. bloated, sleepy, energised, agitated etc. Please also give Jenna an outline of your goals in the gym i.e. fat loss, muscle gain, look good naked 😉

Nutritional therapy: Please complete a pre-consultation questionnaire (template will be provided) and let me know of any medications and supplements that you are currently taking.

Jenna looks forward to helping you to achieve your health and fitness goals.
