As parents, club owners, and coaches, we have incredible influence on the children we interact with and we have the unique opportunity to shape the way our gymnasts feel about their bodies and food choices.
But, so many of us were never actually taught this stuff. We were just left to figure it out on our own. How are we supposed to best support the next generation when so much of the information correlated health and fueling with the our bodies look. The pressures of society do not support the high level of training it takes to be a high caliber gymnast.
For decades, this has left gymnasts underfueled and struggling with the repercussions:
❌ Tired, fatigued, and struggling to get through their workouts
❌ Feeling so sore they can't move
❌ Dealing with mental blocks, frustrations, and out
of control emotions
❌ Stuck in the constant cycle of injuries
❌ Body image concerns and poor relationship with food
❌ Careers cut short or falling short of their fullest potential
And yet, with nearly 4000+ gymnastics clubs across the USA (and even more around the world), most do not have the opportunity to work with a registered dietitian that really knows and understands the nuances of the sport of gymnastics.
That leaves a lot of coaches, parents, and most importantly athletes without proper nutrition support.
What if you had a hub, designed to give your gymnasts and their families the most helpful fueling resources and recommendations?
A one-stop-shop for everything needed to fuel your gymnast in and out of the gym?
Hey, I’m Kerry - I’m a Registered Dietitian for gymnasts, former high-level gymnast, and I'm here to help!
As a former gymnast, and long time gymnastics coach, I get it. The athletes, parents, coaches, and gyms need simple, easily accessible, real nutrition information!
For years, I've heard parents of young gymnasts searching for information on what, why, and how they should be feeding their gymnasts!
And I've heard coaches struggle to get everyone on the same page.
You know nutrition plays an important role for your gymnast to be their absolute best in the gym. To keep them healthy, happy, and high performing, today, tomorrow, and for years to come.
But you just don't know how to get everyone on the same page,
Don't you wish fueling your gymnast came with a training manual?
Now there is one!
See, when I was a high level gymnast growing up, nutrition was never, ever talked about in the gym.
So, when it was eventually brought up, it was because a problem had come up (recurring injury, poor performance, full blown eating disorder). It felt so strange, foreign, &
It was such a stigmatized subject that every time it
was even mentioned, we felt like we were being called
out, attacked, or accused of having a problem...
But, there are so many problems (both big & small) that
can be prevented or significantly reduce the risk of by
talking about nutrition in a way that is rooted in
science, sensitive, & age appropriate
Instead of after problems with performance, injury, or body image concerns have occurred.
Just talking about nutrition does not mean you have to have a problem
Talking to gymnasts about nutrition *in an appropriate way* does not cause eating disorders.
Talking about nutrition does not have to wait until there is a problem.
All the tools gymnasts need to use food as fuel, so they can be their best and healthiest self, in and out of the gym for years to come

❌ You just try to feed them as healthy or clean as possible (while
unintentionally underfueling them in the process...)
❌ You try to cut out foods (like sugar, carbs, gluten, dairy) and
throw every supplement mentioned in a random Facebook
group in hopes it helps
❌ You feel like you spend way too much time thinking about
food. It’s confusing, time consuming, and distracting.
And you're not sure if it's even working!
You just need access to more
