Over the last few years I decided to create a training platform that enabled students and practitioners to be mentored in sports nutrition via a ‘live’ group program. The success of these groups has seen me work closely together with people from all over the world.
So far I have had students from Australia, New Zealand, UK, Germany, Singapore, Canada and the USA. I’ve noted many expressions of interest for another round of Sports Nutrition Mentor Training and so….
I’m excited to announce my upcoming training scheduled for 2019
About the Training
I use a video conference platform called ZOOM, so you can virtually come face to face with myself and everyone else in the group. It’s very interactive, with all participants being able to chat and ask questions along the way.
Some months I present a case study, other months you can present case studies and we as a group will brainstorm treatment and food plans. The first month is a power point lecture and chat about the basics of sports nutrition so that everyone is on the same page of understanding and knowledge. It’s also up to the group which direction we go, if you have certain topics or sports you wish to focus on we can do that too. Each group I have run has been unique and will greatly depending on who is involved which make it all the more fun.
A Facebook group has been created so students can chat throughout the training months and share resources, research, recipes that you may find. You might even like to ask specific questions about your clients too. All previous students belong to this group so there is a wide variety of knowledge and backgrounds to interact with and often you can get feedback form many different people.
- Review basics of sports nutrition
- Case studies

Audio, video and screen share recordings of each training will be available for you to review following each training in a dropbox folder. I also provide lecture notes for your reference. All information will be available for you to access and refer to at anytime.
