My 4 Step Proven Approach to Help You Reach Your Highest Potential
Three Part Assessment
You are the expert of your body and your life. In order to come up with the best, most effective fueling plan for you, let’s get to know you first. The Three Part Assessment includes your health, your food habits, and your gymnastics vision, which is the baseline for building your fueling plan to get you where you want to go.
Navigating the nutrition world can be difficult and confusing, especially when dedicating your time to a sport as intense and complex as gymnastics. As a Registered Dietitian, I believe that education is the biggest key to success. Fueling your body begins when you understand the WHY behind it and are able to sort through all of the nutrition nonsense out there. I will give you the blueprint you need and teach you how to make fueling decisions that support your goals.
Life is ever-changing, and your nutrition should be too. Focus on how to make food FUN, enjoyable, and easy for your lifestyle. Learn to apply your new knowledge, listen to your body, and navigate your emotions surrounding food and turn your goals into healthy habits for life.
The diet mindset in gymnastics often leads to uncertainty, restriction, feelings of guilt, and anxiety. You lose touch with what your body is trying to tell you and rely on a set of made-up rules about what you should and shouldn't eat. We will focus on building a positive, empowered attitude towards food.

Nutrition Programs For Gymnasts
NCAA Division 1 Gymnast
I was struggling to eat enough and enough of the right types of foods. Kerry gave me clear goals to develop healthier eating habits Incrementally, so it wasn’t so overwhelming.

Central Bucks Gymnastics & Dance, PA
After having one of my level 10s work with Kerry, physically, her skills seem strong. She's usually open about feeling tired or weak. Lately, she hasn't had to hold back. She seems happier and her mood is lighter.

Kerry broke the information down perfectly and made sure we understood from a gymnast perspective. I've made adjustments to how quickly I eat, pay more attention to my portions on my plate as well as when I was getting hungry. I adjust what I eat based off of whether or not foods were filling me long enough. I noticed I was a lot more energized and didn’t feel so heavy at practice.
