Why Nutrition?

...and why now?

The Covid pandemic for me was a slow-down and micro vision into the ways I work and move in the world. Without endless distractions of running a business, I was able to see where I busy myself to the point that deeper emotional currents are not felt or even known. This slow down created the space for me to know and feel them. I found deep levels of knowing myself and what really matters to me; a sense of community, a spiritual life, relationships with friends and family, and my relationship with myself my own body. During these past few months, I made a commitment to myself to workout 5-6 days a week (this is not hard for me), to meditate daily, to get 8-9 hours of sleep a night and to stay in contact with the people that matter most to me. I did not do all of these things perfectly, but I did them really well. I look at my apple watch, see that I have closed all my rings for activity and my sleep app says that I’m killing it, and yet, I still don’t feel like I’m winning here. So, why am I talking about all of this while introducing a nutrition program? Because I know what it’s like to not feel good in my body, and I want to. And I know what it’s like to apply a solution that works and I want that for you – if you want it for yourself. Despite working out daily, meditating, tending to social relationship and sleeping well, I felt less vital than I ever have. I don’t think I am alone here. My nutrition, though generally considered “good”, was the only factor that I did not account for, and manage, during this time. And like many people, I found myself eating more than I normally would, eating foods I normally don’t and not “dialing this in”. It feels vulnerable, as a woman, as a gym owner and athlete to say, “I need help here, with food”, but it’s true. As an athlete, I need a coach for my fitness and sport. Also as an athlete, and human, I need a coach for my nutrition. I am going to be 53 years old this year – my body is changing. And how I feel in my body is changing too. I don’t necessarily know the right food formula for this stage of my life – with my desire to be vital, fit, strong and alive. I imagine that we all want this. So, knowing that I needed a solution not just for me but something we could offer to you, our members, we have put together a program that is effective, simple and more of a journey than a destination. I have been through this program and know it works. The Pittsburgh FIT nutrition program is a simple 3 step coached process:

  1. Planning – we will help you plan your meals, your timing, what works for you.
  2. Accountability – we will help you feel accountable not just to your coach, but to yourself.
  3. Measure – the data doesn’t lie. We will provide you with the tools needed to track your progress, make tweaks where necessary and celebrate the results with you.
