A little bit about me

On a daily basis, we are faced with conflicting information about training and 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. My aim is to separate the fact from fiction and aim to educate individuals about real training and nutrition to get real results.

My name is Rachael Fisher, and I’m the founder of Strength Nutrition. I practice what I preach, and offer in-depth personal training, nutrition consultations and coaching, mentorship and support to help my clients achieve their goals. I believe that 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.

I 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. My training methods and dietary recommendations are based on scientific data, adopting an approach that is flexible and sustainable. No cookie-cutter programs. No shortcuts. I customise every single training program based on my client’s needs and goals, and make any adjustments when required. The same goes with my nutrition consultations – I calculate my client’s specific caloric and macronutrient needs, allowing self-regulation and more importantly – freedom of choice. From there, I make changes to the nutrition targets and conditioning recommendations when necessary, based on weekly check-in stats and current body composition goal.

Whether you want to get stronger, drop some body fat, add some muscle mass or anything in between – I can help, and will be there every step of the way. Ultimately, I want my clients to become more educated when it comes to training and nutrition. I’m here to teach you how to have a strong relationship with food and be more informed about strength training, whilst maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Who’s behind Strength Nutrition?

Rachael Fisher is a Certified Sports Nutritionist, and the owner of Strength Nutrition.

She has an interest in human anatomy, which translated into to her passion of nutrition and strength training. Rachael offers tailored nutrition consultations and coaching to a wide range of clients to help them achieve their goals.

Her best lifts to date are:

Squat : 121kg
Bench : 75kg
Deadlift : 165kg

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.
