About Wendi Irlbeck

Master of Science and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist 

I strongly believe there is a difference between being good and being great, and the underlying factor is nutrition.

I am a former college athlete, physique competitor, personal trainer, passionate health and fitness professional with a drive to help others succeed with their respective goals at a high level.  I work with a wide array of clients. Those focused on general health and wellness, weight loss, weight gain and simply improving overall energy levels. I specialize in sports nutrition by trait, working with athletes of all ages. Athletes don’t diet and exercise, they eat and train. I am here to serve you collectively to achieve your next level self through evidence based nutrition recommendations that are individualized to meet the goals of the individual.

Eating a well balanced diet that contains high-quality lean proteins, fruits, vegetables and living an active lifestyle are paramount for physical and mental well-being. Being healthy also means having a healthy relationship with food where all foods fit.  As a health and nutrition professional, I find fulfillment not only in helping athletes perform at their best, but also providing evidence-based nutrition and fitness recommendations to guide individuals to achieve their best self. Food is so much more than fuel and I believe knowledge through education and counseling empowers individuals to make choices that support the life they want to live.

In a world full of shakes, supplements and fad diets I’m here to help you learn the tools for lifelong health and success. It’s time to get back to the basics by eating real foods that fuel our bodies and minds. Nutrition with Wendi is not a me thing, but a WE thing. Together we will help you create an individualized nutrition and fitness plan that meets your needs while creating healthy sustainable habits along the way.

The goal of Nutrition with Wendi is to serve those who aspire to improve and excel in their athletic performance and health. We define success by transforming each individual, athlete and competitor in their respective goals. Nutrition can make a good athlete great or a great athlete good! It is paramount to control your controllables. Nutrition is a controllable.
