Health, Fitness and Nutrition Consultation Services

Partnering with Athletes, Business Professionals, Coaches and Teams.

Hi, I’m Wendi Irlbeck

Master of Science, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Health and Performance Coach

Welcome to Nutrition with Wendi! I am a faith based dietitian who is eager to utilize my God given talents to help inspire change, health and prosperity among any individual, group or organization. My practice is Christ centered with a focus on science and application.

Growing up I loved playing any sport! I was a competitive runner and softball player. I have always been intrigued by the role certain foods played in my energy, mood, health and athletic performance. I quickly fell in love with the science behind the nutrition certain foods offered my body and how it influenced my focus in the classroom and on the field as a competitive athlete. I’m extremely enthusiastic and compassionate to utilize my experience and knowledge to help others excel in their health, wellness and performance goals!

With a plan, hard work, faith in Jesus, dedication and accountability all things are possible! Be bright, be bold, be you and YOU CAN be successful at anything you commit yourself to.

“Wendi is so motivational. She texts me daily to see how I am doing and reminds me often that she is proud of my progress! Since working with Wendi, I have such a better understanding of how my food choices affect my athletic performance. Wendi has provided me with personalized nutritional guidance that has significantly reduced my headaches and helped me stay focused in my classes. I play outside back and this position requires me to do a lot of running. I have also worked with Wendi on increasing my water intake and quality snacks to support appetite for sustainable energy. Overall, I have a better understanding of what foods and drinks impact my performance, along with timing around my games and practices. Since gaining this knowledge, I have had so much more energy on the field. It was important to me and my family that I worked with someone who had the nutritional knowledge, passion and an understanding of what I face as a female, student and athlete. Wendi possesses each of these great qualities! ‘Without a doubt I would recommend Wendi to any athlete!”

“Wendi is an extremely knowledgeable professional on the topics of sports nutrition and it’s impact on athletic performance and daily life.  Wendi possesses the ability to build trust with her athletes in order to teach them how to properly fuel themselves to optimize performance. Wendi is a practitioner who conducts her work using evidence based science. She develops individualized plans for athletes based on their goals and needs, I would confidently refer my athletes to her and know they are getting quality assistance.  I consider myself lucky to have learned from and worked with Wendi during our time at the University of Wisconsin-Stout!”

“Over the past year Wendi and I have developed a great partnership.  Wendi’s knowledge in the  health and nutrition field is evident in all aspects. I appreciate Wendi’s passion and dedication to this industry.  Her attention to detail and creative approach in teaching our youth about nutrition is fantastic. I look forward to future projects and brainstorm sessions with her!”

“Wendi Irlbeck uses evidence-based practices to coach her nutrition clients in the most scientific way possible.  She also uses behavioral coaching as opposed to complex and restrictive meal plans which create adherence difficulties.  Wendi is an accomplished public speaker and shares a plethora of knowledge through her daily clever, yet easy to understand social media posts.  I refer my complex nutrition clients directly to Wendi and she never disappoints.  I would recommend Nutrition with Wendi for all your sports nutrition needs.”

Annette Zapp, CSCS, TSAC-F, CISSN

“I was fortunate enough to hear Wendi speak at the 2020 NHSSCA Michigan State. She did an outstanding job blending her nutritional expertise with practical, real life tips and recommendations. Not only is Wendi well versed in current sports nutrition research, but Wendi understands the demands our athletes endure beyond the weight room and classroom. Wendi was able to answer many of the diverse and challenging questions asked by coaches at the clinic with patience and respect. With questionable information available from a multitude of sources instantaneously, Wendi relies on the peer reviewed research to form her opinions. Most importantly, it quickly became clear to me that she works with the athlete’s best interest in mind.”
