Welcome To The Fueled Gymnast Academy!
Hey! I'm Kerry.
I used to be a level 10 and NCAA gymnast. Now I'm a registered dietitian nutritionist (RD) who works specifically with gymnasts!
My career as a gymnast certainly did not go as planned. From the time I was a teenager, I was always so tired and I struggled with injury after injury. I felt like my body could never recover and ultimately forced me into an early retirement after my junior year of college.
It wasn’t until I become an RD and spent years studying the in's, out's, and nuances of fueling a high-level gymnast that I realized what an impact having the right nutrition could have had on the outcome of my career.
How could I have known? The resources just weren't available to me.
As a dietitian for gymnasts, I have made it my mission to provide gymnasts with the nutrition knowledge that is a crucial part of being successful in this sport! And now, I'm able to help high level gymnasts everyday reach their highest potential, both in and out of the gym.
Since 2019, I’ve run Food for Fuel, High Performance Nutrition, where I've worked with 100s of competitive gymnasts (compulsory through elite) their parents, and coaches, teaching them what it actually means to fuel their body as a high-level gymnast.
That's why I'm so excited to introduce to you The Fueled Gymnast Academy, a virtual way for gymnasts to learn all about fueling their body to become the best version of themselves!
I believe that well fueled gymnasts are happier, healthier, and higher performing gymnasts and gymnasts deserve to truly understand how to fuel their body for sport while also developing a healthy relationship with food and their body.
This program is for gymnasts (and parents) who are ready to take advantage of all of the benefits having a strategy for nutrition can offer. They are ready to confidently have the answer to the ever-common question "what's right for me"!
I’m so excited to welcome you to The Fueled Gymnast Academy and help you learn how to prioritize, strategize, and optimize your nutrition for performance and life beyond sport.

Does this sound familiar...
For years. you've tried to do everything you can to achieve your big goals in the gym, but...
You're constantly tired and barely have enough energy fore practice...
You feel like you're wasting practice time not being able to work your hardest...
Your strength and endurance isn't getting any better...
You’re always sore, tired, or injured...
You're frustrated by missed practices, falling behind, and missed opportunities...
You feel stuck...
You know fueling your body is important, but you’re so confused! All the nutrition recommendations & meals plans you see aren’t actually created for a high-level gymnast like you. So...
You’re guessing at what and when to eat...
You think if you just try to eat healthy or clean...
You try to cut out foods (like sugar, carbs, gluten, dairy).
You feel like you spend too much time thinking about food. It’s confusing, time consuming, and distracting.
And you're not sure if it's even working!
Fueling your body doesn't have to be a guessing game. And you don't have to figure it out on your own.

You want access to a qualified nutrition professional who knows and understands what it means to be a high-level gymnast
Eliminating your favorite foods or feeling restricted - yes, you can still eat Christmas cookies
Counting or measuring every bite of food you eat
Stepping on the scale - your weight is not the indicator of how well you do in the gym
Why I Created The Fueled Gymnast Academy!
Over the past few years, I’ve had the privilege of working with so many amazing gymnasts and their families. But, the more gymnasts that I work with, the more I realize that this community still needs education and support to truly fuel their body to achieve their goals (and finish the sport happy and healthy).
For so long, real, science-backed nutrition information from a licensed professional has not been accessible to everyone! While there are so many nutritionists out there, many just don’t have the credentials and the experience within the sport of gymnastics.
Gymnasts deserve education and support that is
-Specific to the unique sport of gymnastics
-Supports nutrition challenges that go along with "just being a kid" (aka picky eating, growth and development, diet culture and peer pressure, etc.)
I believe the best strategy to achieve this is both backed in the science of sports nutrition and can be realistically applied to your life!
That’s why I knew I needed to create an easy way for gymnasts to get the nutrition knowledge they need to be successful, both in and out of the sport.
The Fueled Gymnast Academy is the easiest, most comprehensive way for gymnasts to learn how to fuel their body to stay healthy and reach their highest potential!

How much time will I need to spend each week to complete the program?
Each week, the video modules, challenges, journals take most gymnasts approximately 1-2 hours to complete. Additionally, the weekly live discussions will last approximately 1 hour.
We've already invested so much in gymnastics - do I really need this?
Nutrition is the foundation for everything you want to achieve in the gym -- food are the literal building blocks for every piece of your body! All of the time and money invested in gymnastics, PT, strength training, mental training, chiropractors, massage therapists, specialized theapies, ETC... won't make a difference without the right fuel behind them. You've invested too much in your goals to NOT make nutrition a priority!
Can parents or coaches enroll in the program as well?
The January 2022 cohort of The Fueled Gymnast Academy is geared towards competitive gymnasts ages 13-18 years old. With enrollment, there are bonus resources included specifically for parents to help them best support their gymnast through.
