Integrative and Functional Sports Nutritionist Services

At Michigan Elite Conditioning for Athletes (MECA), our on-staff sports nutritionist works closely with our strength and conditioning coaches, athletes and non-athlete clients. They’ll teach you how nutrition and food fuels successful training. Our sports nutritionist also explains how food acts like medicine to heal issues in the body that may be impeding performance.

Our sports nutritionist uses food and nutritional supplements to help resolve things like:

  • Fatigue/lack of energy
  • Poor sleep
  • Leaky gut/digestive issues
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Weight management/fat loss
  • Low libido
  • Food intolerances/reactions
  • Inflammation
  • Issues with performance/general fitness
  • Ability to build muscle

By working directly with MECA personal trainers and strength coaches, our sports nutritionist helps create workouts and modifications specific to the needs of individual clients. The MECA sports nutritionist meets with each personal training client in our Royal Oak facility to show them how exercise and nutrition work in concert to achieve optimum performance.

What to Expect During Your Sports Nutritionist Visit

Like our training, we take a personalized approach to your nutritional needs. Prior to your first visit, you’ll complete a comprehensive intake form to allow our nutritionist to better understand your current health and any issues you’re experiencing.

We have a wide range of tools and services at our disposal to help determine the root cause or causes of any health condition.

The nutritionist will review your specific nutritional plan and walk you through how to be successful. You’ll have good coaching and accountability to help you along the way. You’ll also have a client portal available to you for the questions that you may have.

Helping Athletes with Sports Nutrition

Any athlete—from middle school up through the pros—can benefit from nutritional testing and advice. Our MECA sports nutritionist’s guidance can help athletes overcome issues with sleep, inflammation, digestion and diet that may be preventing them from reaching their goals.

To support sports performance training, our sports nutritionist can help athletes develop a dietary program that includes:

  • Meal planning & scheduling
  • a healthy gut
  • Sleep
  • Detoxification
  • Supplements
  • nutritional protocol for any goal

Helping Non-Athletes with Nutrition

For our clients who aren’t athletes but still want to improve their fitness, nutrition is a key component for optimal health. Our MECA nutritionist works with all MECA personal trainers to recommend nutritional plans and supplements that complement individualized personal training programs.

The nutritionist also works with your MECA coach to specify exercises that, when combined with proper nutrition, can heal injuries or issues that impede general wellness. Our nutritionist’s dietary plans can help with:

  • Lean muscle mass and body composition
  • Weight loss
  • Hormone imbalances that affect fitness
  • Fatigue/lack of energy
  • Low libido
  • Poor sleep
  • Food allergies/intolerances
