I've devoted my career to developing a new approach to nutrition and fitness, one that uses the web to connect clients to cutting-edge researchers and coaches. The result is Precision Nutrition, an entirely web-based nutrition coaching company. Here, we do 3 things: research, professional education and coaching.
In our coaching program, we personally help our clients get in the best shape of their lives. The studies we run on our clients generate our research and make us, to our knowledge, the largest private nutrition research organization in the world. And in our professional certification, we teach elite health and fitness professionals (like doctors, nutritionists, physical therapists and personal trainers) how to use the latest in nutrition research in their own practice.
And if you want to know about me personally, here's what I do.
Writing about nutrition and fitness is what I love most. I've written countless articles for nearly every site or magazine that covers nutrition. I've written a comprehensive nutrition program called The Precision Nutrition System. A cookbook for the fit food lover called Gourmet Nutrition. And the definitive textbook on nutrition science for fitness professionals called The Essentials of Sport and Exercise Nutrition. You can read my writing in our newsletter, our Facebook page or our blog.
Over my career, I've personally coached and consulted with thousands of people from all walks of life. From everyday people who could be your neighbors, right up to athletes at the highest level of sport. I currently lead our extraordinary coaching team here at Precision Nutrition, and co-developed the Lean Eating Coaching Program, which broke ground as the first entirely web-based nutrition coaching program. The program is beloved by our clients and consistently helps people get healthier, stronger and fitter than they ever thought possible. If you would like us to help you personally, I strongly encourage you to check it out. Spots are limited and sell out quickly when opened to the public.
Specializing in exercise physiology and nutrient biochemistry, I received my PhD at the University of Western Ontario under renowned sport nutrition researcher Dr. Peter Lemon. I'm an assistant adjunct professor at the University of Texas and a course instructor at Eastern Michigan University. Over the years I've taught university courses in Exercise Science, Nutrient Metabolism, Fitness and Wellness, and Exercise Nutrition. These days, I teach primarily through our Precision Nutrition Certification Program.
In my doctoral studies, my research focused primarily on exercise nutrition; specifically, what to eat before, during and after exercise to optimize performance. At Precision Nutrition, I've sought to develop a new kind of research that falls somewhere between heavily-controlled, small-scale laboratory studies typically done at universities, and the loosely-controlled, large-scale epidemiology studies typically funded by groups like the National Institutes of Health. Using our medium-scale method, we rapidly test hypotheses with thousands of real, motivated people, collect and interpret the data online, and turn that data into better coaching methods for our clients.
In my personal life, I continue to pursue athletics. I've competed at a fairly high level in track and field, rugby and football; I also won a US national junior bodybuilding title back in 1995. These days, the majority of my athletic time is spent at or preparing for masters-level track and field meets, where I compete as a sprinter.
