“Steve has been a great asset to my nutrition, training and race program for the last few years. It’s been great to have a consistent plan to help me achieve my best performance from training to racing. It’s taken the guess work out of preparation and given me more time to focus on my training”



‘I worked with Stephen in the lead up to the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge with my team mates from Fortitude IV. He came from a highly reputable referral and did not disappoint. He helped me develop a comprehensive team plan for nutrition, performance snacking, supplements, vitamins and pre-race meal planning – these all stood the test of a 3,000 mile row across the Atlantic Ocean. He also hosted the team at Liverpool John Moore’s University to conduct testing of Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR), body composition and VO2 Max on the ergo – these aided us in our team building, S&C planning as well as bulking efficiently in the lead up to the race. Overall he was a pleasure to work with and certainly contributed to our victory by 168 miles lead.’
