The Foundation of Health
Nutrition gives us the fuel we need for activity, it builds muscle and promotes healthy brain activity. Its easy to get caught up in desperate weight loss programs or diets that focus on muscle growth, but they often exclude or reduce specific nutrients needed for health. Our approach is to break down nutrition into simple easy terms, providing you with the strategies and plans to eat a macro/micro-nutrient balanced diet that will deliver results and help you obtain your goals.
Our Approach to Nutrition
Our approach to delivering a balanced diet starts with an education on macro-nutrients; proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Developing a firm understanding of why each is important to your diet and the role they play in your health. We will then shift focus to micro-nutrients and the importance that vitamins and minerals play in a functioning healthy body. We will guide you towards the foods that are necessary to meet your micro-nutrient requirements on a daily basis.
We have partnered with a local company, JET Pack Nutrition, to provide meal prep if that option best suits your lifestyle. Besides receiving a balanced diet weekly, you won’t have to worry about your macron-nutrients. All is taken care of for you. You just choose the plan best suited for you: lean down, lifestyle performance or a lifestyle bulk plans and the team at Jet Pack Nutrition does the rest.
Leaky Gut – Fact or Fiction
Leaky gut, or increased intestinal permeability, is a digestive condition in which bacteria and toxins are able to “leak” through the intestinal wall.

Common symptoms of leaky gut are:

These include excessive sugar intake, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (Ibuprofen), excessive alcohol intake, deficiencies in Vitamin A and D, as well as zinc, stress, poor gut health and yeast overgrowth.
