A little bit about us

On a daily basis, we are faced with conflicting information about nutrition. This information is usually spread from large media platforms, allowing us to be easily misinformed, or even manipulated. We’ve all heard at least one (if not all) of the following:

“Lose 10kg in 1 week!”

“Sugar will cause diabetes!”

“Saturated fat will kill you!”

“Lifting weights will make you bulky!”

It’s just bizarre.

Strength Nutrition is different. We separate the fact from fiction and aim to educate individuals about real nutrition to get real results.

At Strength Nutrition, we practise what we preach. We offer in-depth online coaching, mentorship and support to help our clients achieve their goals. We believe a balanced, well-structured diet teamed with strength training and conditioning is optimal in producing improvements in body composition and long-term health benefits.

If you’re looking for a quick-fix, stop reading now because you’re in the wrong place.

We will take the ambiguity and guesswork out of the equation, and will provide you with support, guidance and education to get the results you’re after. Our dietary recommendations are based on scientific data, adopting a flexible dieting approach. No cookie-cutter programs. No shortcuts. We customise our services for each individual by calculating their specific caloric and macronutrient needs, allowing self-regulation and more importantly – freedom of choice. From there, we tweak our client’s nutrition targets and conditioning recommendations based on weekly check-in stats and current body composition goal.

Flexible dieting has been proven to be very maintainable and more importantly, adjustable. However, flexible dieting is not for everyone – and that is okay. Before we get started, we communicate with all potential clients to ensure that we’re the right fit.

Whether you want to drop some body fat, add some muscle mass or anything in between – we can help, and will be there every step of the way. Ultimately, we want our clients to be 100% independent and educated in the nutrition department. We’re here to teach you how to have a strong relationship with food, whilst maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

At Strength Nutrition,
we practice what we preach.

Okay, enough of the third person talk. Here is the 411 on me.

Back in 2011 I really wanted to lose some weight. I was a tad on the chubby side, knew near nothing about nutrition and had never stepped foot in a gym. In that year, I joined Fernwood Fitness (a female-only gym) merely because I was too embarrassed to train around the opposite sex – which looking back now, seems ridiculous. I dropped 10kg that year by tracking calories (I was roughly eating 1400kcal / day), doing weight circuits along with cardio. But I stalled, and couldn’t seem to push past that 10kg barrier…

Then, my partner introduced me to PTC Sydney – a strength based gym. I learned and started to practice the basic compound lifts (squat, bench and deadlift), and became interested in powerlifting. Throughout this time, I tried a few of different diets to try and improve my body composition. Namely, these included Keto and Intermittent Fasting. I’ll note here, that whilst these “worked”, none of them seemed to be sustainable. I either found them to be extremely restrictive or not adjustable – which are two important factors when implementing a nutrition protocol. Further to this, I also felt a bit lost when I reached a certain weight or body composition goal because I didn’t know how to progress or modify my diet from there.

So, where to now? I felt like I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. I didn’t want to attempt anymore fad diets, but at the same time I wanted to get leaner and stronger. Then I was introduced to Starting Strength and Dr. Jordan Feigenbaum from Barbell Medicine. I reached out to Jordan to take the lead with nutritional guidance and training programming. During this time, I learned the principles about training and nutrition, which made me realise that I was really passionate about both areas. I learned the science behind it all, why they worked and applied them to others and myself.

Over the years, I have progressively increased my strength (even whilst in a calorie deficit) and have manipulated my dietary intake to achieve whatever body composition goal desired at that particular time. It’s not rocket science, but it is science. I want to show you how to do the same.
