As the President of Sports Dietitians Australia, Sally is a trusted and respected leader in her field. Sally will work with you to demonstrate how purpose led decisions around food choices can be applied to make achievable and sustainable progression and improvements when seeking to achieve a goal. It may be your gold medal, good health and vitality or general wellness.
This involves individuals with complex or unique energy demands from an active job or lifestyle, time poor high performing executives, those training towards a goal or milestone event – like an overseas hike or triathlon, developing and emerging athletes, or individuals who want to see improvement in their health and lifestyle.
Sally’s style of nutrition intervention focuses on understanding individual needs, identifying barriers and challenges and developing frameworks and systems which are hallmarks of Sally’s coaching. These serve to align intake with physical demands and empower individuals to take ownership of food and exercise choices and improve relationships with food to reach performance and health goals.
