Exercise is only part of the equation in achieving your health and fitness goals. Nutrition lays the foundation for true health and impacts not only how we look, but how we feel, think, and thrive with the absence of disease and illness.
We are often flooded with conflicting diet and nutrition information, and it is easy to get overwhelmed when trying to make healthy choices.
While general nutritional advice is straightforward and easily accessible, applying it and making it specific to your needs can be difficult. Losing weight, performing better, improving body composition, having more energy, improving digestion, and figuring out what foods actually work for YOU (not just what is “healthy”) goes beyond just counting calories or following a meal plan.
With our quarterly nutrition challenges, free workshops/seminars, and nutrition coaching, we provide the tools and support you need to make simple changes that help you to build your nutrition foundation.
Have more energy – get going without relying on pre-workout and get through the afternoon without needing 3 cups of coffee.
Improve performance – by focusing on quality and the right macronutrient ratios, you will know what to eat / when to eat to support your energy needs
Manage cravings – get over sugar, carb, and salty cravings so you don’t have to rely on willpower
Sleep better – fall asleep easily and stay asleep so you can wake up with energy
Support your metabolism – with the right protein, carbs, and fats so you can lose weight long term
Improve digestion – since gut health is the foundation to overall health, it’s important to add in the foods to support a healthy gut

Cameron is a husband, business owner, a coach, and a lover of all things outdoorsy. Having worked in the fitness world for over 10 years, Cameron has been exposed to countless nutrition strategies. In that time, he’s seen how a very strict protocol can quickly be abandoned and how something too relaxed is altogether ignored. It’s all about balance for Cameron. He wants to help you create a sustainable approach to your nutrition and, more importantly, a realistic one that aligns with your goals.
He knows that there is an overwhelming amount of nutrition and fitness information available 24/7 thanks to the wonders of social media with each promising dramatic changes if you just follow along for a few weeks. This only serves to create confusion and the dreaded dietary re-bound. Cameron’s goal is to help you cut through the noise and understand the basics of nutrition so that you can not only distinguish truth from trends but set goals you can realistically achieve and create progress that you can actually maintain for a lifetime.
