Elite sports nutrition coaching and education for busy student-athletes, teams, and families!

You can train all you want but if you’re not eating enough of the right foods at the right time you’re never going to gain strength, speed, muscle, or improve overall performance!  Athletes don’t diet and exercise. Athletes eat and train! We remove the confusion on what to eat and how much to eat so athletes and individuals can gain muscle, lose fat, and live a healthy lifestyle!

Erika W. Soccer

Results: Gained muscle, and power, and earned a D1 Scholarship with Illinois State! “Wendi helped me build a fueling plan that taught me exactly what to eat, when to eat, and how much to eat around games and practice. Wendi coached my twin brother who also plays soccer in college. High school athletes need this information!”

Brad L.- Athletic Director, Texas

Results: Our middle school and high school athletes gained strength, and energy, and had a better understanding of supplement safety NWW sports nutrition presentations. The athletes learned how much to eat, when to eat, and how to properly fuel games and tournaments. This made a difference in their energy in the weight room These sports nutrition resources are a MUST!”

Ryan C. – Baseball

Results: Gained 20+ lbs of muscle! “Wendi’s program will hold you accountable to improve your strength, power, and overall performance. High school baseball athletes train hard but lack nutrition which holds you back. Especially if you plan to play in college. This program was clear, simple, and easy to follow!”

Busy Father- Mark, Ohio

Results: Lost 80 lbs. Gained confidence, strength, and more energy throughout the Men’s Fat Loss Coaching Program! “Wendi and her coaching program will change your life and help you get to where you want to go no matter what life obstacles you’re facing! Lose the weight and keep it off!

Gracie L. Basketball

Results: I had no idea how much to eat before games and was often fatigued. Following my meal plan and being coached by an NWW-registered dietitian was a game-changer for me! I felt less muscle soreness, was able to bounce back from an injury faster and gain strength with their help. Simple changes to my nutrition made a huge difference! Thank you, NWW!

Raegan D. Volleyball

Results:  “Playing my high school season has been so much easier with gaining 15 lbs of muscle by following my custom meal plan! I have so much more energy, I know what to eat before and after games, and I no longer feel achy and sore. My coach told me I needed to add size when I arrived next year to play at MTSU so we hired Wendi for nutrition coaching. My mom and I know exactly what to pack for tournaments and how to time meals. Thank you, Wendi!”

“Wendi educated our athletes on how to properly eat and fuel their training sessions and games. We met regularly over the course of 3 months onsite and virtually. Wendi provided tips on how to help parents plan team dinners and the best way to build muscle and recover from training! She cares deeply about athletes and helps females understand the value of proper eating and fueling for a healthy relationship with food.”

Boaz, AL High School Baseball, Volleyball, XC, Softball, and Football program

“Working with Wendi helped me understand how to properly fuel my body and that I needed more carbohydrates as a cross country and track and field athlete. We met on ZOOM regularly to review my nutrition, iron levels, and other labs, and she provided me a custom fueling plan. The right foods at the right time helped me gain more energy and speed! I started to recover better after my runs once I followed her plan.”

Caroline Schoen, Flossmoor HS, IL

Columbia University XC and TF 2023 comitt

“Working with Wendi was awesome! She helped me clear up my B12 deficiency, reduce acid reflux, lose 62 lbs, prepare for cycling competitions, and build healthy habits which included more protein! I highly recommend her services to anyone. She even helps plant-based eaters like me!”

Suraj
Medical Professional

“Wendi and I met virtually for several weeks. She developed a custom plan to add muscle with simple guidelines that made it easy to follow. I was able to go from 174 lbs to 198 lbs in roughly five months! She helped me with an eating routine and fueling plan around training that also helped me recover stronger and faster! I highly recommend anyone work with Wendi if they want to be elite and gain lean mass the right way. Thank you, Wendi!”

Nutrition with Wendi
If you see trash in the parking lot on your way into a store PICK. IT. UP. Whoever was too lazy or careless to throw away their trash gave me the opportunity to clean up my community. You don’t have to do big things to make an impact but those little things compound over time to create a BIG change. I’m not sharing this to say, “look at me”. I’m sharing this to say someone is always watching. God is always watching and even random people who you didn’t see but saw you. A comment from someone “I saw you pick up that trash and it reminded me to throw mine away” in my local Target.I took the photo to share later about “pick up trash”. But God clearly had a better message for me to share. Clean up your community whenever and wherever. Others will follow lead.💜 Also ironic 😂 as I am a dietitian with a branded jacket pf my logo and RDN + credentials holding a fast food drink. ... See MoreSee Less
