Elite Athlete Consultations for Normal People
I make sure each week I have a clinic day dedicated to doing just this – seeing normal people with normal problems and aliments and giving them information in order to help them with their goals.
So in case you were wondering there are a number of consultation packages available. The aim is for self sufficiency in as short a space of time as possible. Ideally you wouldn’t need more than 3 months of support unless you really like the feeling of having a nutritionist looking after you.
I liaise closely with trainers and the other health supporting team around the individual who can act as the barometer and can do the frequent body composition testing which you will need to keep you on track.
I can even put a performance team into place to support people – more in this later.
Of course if things change and you have a new challenge of change of circumstance after the 1stphase of support, then we often see people each 6 months for a MOT and resetting goals for the next year or so.
Some people sign up for triathlons or big challenges. Others might be starting a family and need help with fertility and baby nutrition. You might have just turned 40, 50 or 60 and want to be ripped for once in your life!
Or you might have something wrong which hasn’t been fixed by a long line of practitioners and strategies and it might just be something to do with the way you eat and what you choose to eat that’s causing a problem.
Anyway I aim to provide you with the information related to your particular challenge and guide you through the behavior changes you need to be able to stick to your plan. If myself or one of my team can’t help or it’s an area someone else knows more about we’ll pass you on to someone who can help…..
The Consultation Process
I provide personal Nutritional Consultations in London. OR via skype. These consultations are suitable for anyone who is serious about improving your health or performance in some way.
You don’t need to be an international standard athlete. I get just as much pleasure helping an overweight stressed businessman or busy wife as I do an Olympic athlete.
Some of the activities the last few clients have embarked on include:
- A General MOT – looking at correcting deficiencies and working out what actually is necessary for health and looking good, what works, what doesn’t.
- We had someone lose 5 stone recently and did a photo shoot at the end of their transformation
- Guy last year completed the marathon de sable.
- One client climbed Everest.
- Another walked 800 miles in 30 days around the cliffs of Cornwall.
- A third completed an iron man.
- A 4th client recently qualified for the Hawaii Iron Man.
- We’ve chap focusing on a south pole solo mission later this year
- We saw a lady with chronic fatigue the week before with a rare digestive disorder
- We helped another lady with a bloating issue recently too
Prior to meeting you’ll complete a detailed questionnaire, this information helps me evaluate where you are currently and the likely areas for improvement. The data that is collected comes from different sectors of your life and helps me build a 3 Dimensional profile of you, your body and what makes you tick.
Lifestyle Analysis and Questionnaire
This in depth survey helps identify what makes you tick, your motivations, day to day habits, working strategies, likes, dislikes and trends. When we analyse the answers we can identify patterns that can provide insights into your behaviours, which may have been contributing to your results and highlight immediate areas for improvement.
Symptom related questionnaire
This is a detailed questionnaire designed to find any imbalances in your body; it tackles all areas of the body, immune system, digestive function, neurotransmitter release. It provides insight into areas of likely imbalance and importantly areas which may require further investigation.
It’s hard to believe that a questionnaire can provide this level of insight, I compare it to a psychometric type of analysis which you may be more familiar with. I’m often amazed at how accurate these can be when all I’ve done is answered a few multiple choice questions. This really can be an absolute eye-opener!
Bloods and hormones
I always like to get some background bloods done and hormones where necessary. These can really turn up things you’d never have know about otherwise. Heavy metals like mercury can show up, deficiencies and imbalances. We’ll get them all normalized to help improve your health and well being.
We’ll then meet in person and have a consultation that will last for up to an hour maybe longer. We’ll review the results of your questionnaires. We’ll discuss your sporting goals and develop a plan for realising them. I’ll also conduct a comprehensive 13 point skin fold body fat analysis if necessary to your goals.
I’ll write up a report collating information from all the questionnaire information and our personal consultation. We’ll use this report as your ‘ROAD MAP’ as you make changes and improvements over the coming 6 months. A key component of this report will be the detailed nutritional strategy that we set up.
Daily and Weekly Support
I like to get a handle on your food and training and daily feedback is one of the best ways to do this. I can then coach you through the right things to change, altering and finetuning as we go along.
Monthly consultations. We’ll touch base each month face to face or via skype to monitor your progress, resolve potential problems and set new targets and goals so you continue to improve. We’ll also re -analyze your body composition.
Final Review and Consultation. Repeat all the tests.
We’ll review your progress discuss areas for future improvement.
