“Diet significantly influences athletic performance. All athletes should adopt specific nutritional strategies before, during and after training and competition to maximize their mental and physical performance. Evidence-based guidelines on the amount, composition, and timing of food intake have been defined to help athletes perform and train more effectively, with less risk of illness and injury.” -Nutrition Working Group of the International Olympic Committee, 2010/ Professor Ron Maughan and Professor Louise Burke 2012.

“I knew I had met the perfect person to help me with my nutrition while I was training for my first Ironman 70.3. Alex helped me make sure I was eating enough throughout my training as I had previously felt during some of my longer training sessions I wasn’t fueled adequately. The amount of information I have learned from her with SHOCK, especially in terms of pre workout and post workout meals has been beneficial in every aspect of my life as I enjoy many different activities. I have really learned to embrace her approach of eating clean, real foods and finding healthy alternatives for some of the foods that I crave.”
