NUTRITION COACHING

Meet Rachel - Nutrition Specialist

I have a passion for sport and a passion for nutrition. Being able to combine both into one amazing career has practically been a dream come true. I first became interested in the field of nutrition as an adolescent when I began competitive long-distance running. I'd been a competitive athlete my whole life, but had never had any difficulties fueling my body. My performance began to suffer as I struggled with an eating disorder, and under-fueling. It was during that time that I was made aware of the immense importance of nutrition in my performance and overall health.  

 

Since then, my pursuit of all things active has taught me more than I could imagine. I don't run, bike, or hike to stay in shape, so that I can eat whatever I want, or because I feel like I have to. I stay active because I love it. I love the freedom, power, 

happiness, and confidence it makes me feel. It gives me time to myself to think, relax, and step away from the chaos of life.

 

I love food and am one of the least picky eaters you'll ever meet, and I firmly believe that food is meant to be enjoyed. My goal as a dietitian is to help others fully live, feel and perform at their best by providing guidance and education on the power of nutrition, all while fostering a happy and healthy relationship with food.

 

Throughout my early years in the sport my relationship with running had some really high points and really low points, as did my relationship with food.  At the time, I wished I had someone along who understood both my love of running and what was happening with my nutrition. I couldn't find that. Now, each day I am thankful for the fact that I get to be that person for others who understands both factors and how they can be used together. I strive to help other runners deepen their love of activity and adventure, reach goals they didn't know they had, and improve their nutrition and overall health.

  • Do I need a watch?
    No, Coaches can help guide you through your training based on manually entered activities. However, the added data that can be attained from a watch, will increase the accuracy of your training exponentially.
  • Do I need computer?
    No, our training software can be used directly from your smart phone.
  • How do I pay?
    Trail Transformation accepts all major credit cards, as well as Paypal. Once you start your coaching package, your coach will guide you through our simple payment process.
  • Am I good enough for a coach?
    Absolutely, runners of all abilities benefit from coaching. Coaching not only gives you short term training goals, but also aids in injury prevention.
  • What do I do if I need to change things on the plan?
    Communication is key! Your coach will be happy to help you adjust things in a way that best meets your schedule. The best way to contact your coach is via email, but if it's urgent as in changing a workout the day of, a text message will likely work best.
  • Can you help me with a road race?
    Absolutely, Trail Transformation has coaches that specialize in all areas of running.
  • I’m just getting started in running, is that ok?"
    Yes, the start of running is one of the best times to work with a coach. Often new runners try to do too much too soon and end up getting injured. Another benefit of working with a running coach early, is they can help you break any bad habits before they are truly formed.
  • Can you I be trained for a fast 5k, half marathon, boston qualifier?"
    Yes, both Coach Michael and Coach Tyler have had lots of success on the roads, and know what it takes to perform well in these events.
  • I’m not signed up for a race, I just want to run injury free. Can you help?"
    Yes, running is a life long sport. We're here to help you in any way possible.
  • I’m limited on time, can the program still help?"
    Absolutely, in fact time crunched runners often benefit the most from a training plan. Instead of just getting out the door, our coaches can help you maximize the time you do have.
  • I’m currently injured, can you help me get back?"
    Yes, many of our coaches are Physical Therapists by trade and specialize in helping runners return to the sport they love.
  • I have a question for the coach, how do I reach out?"
    Shoot us an email at ClientServices@Trailtransformation.com
  • Can I request a specific coach?
    Yes, if you have a relationship with a coach already, and are looking to work with them specifically we will do our best to accomodate. That being said, our priority is always making sure that the client gets the coach that is best equipped to help them maximize their training.
  • I don't have a gym membership, how do I do the strength exercises?"
    The coaches will work with you to develop a routine that you can perform at home. The gym opens up opportunities for more exercises, but they can also be done at home.
  • I'm not close to any trails, how do I train for a trail race?"
    Our coaches have ways to simulate the challenges of a trail race. If you can run, then we can train you for a trail race.
