Just having started running in 2008, I’ve spent the next seven years struggling to find a nutrition plan that will help me perform at my best. I’ve spent countless hours researching and experimenting on myself only to come up with no answers. I found myself frustrated not being able to push myself to the potential my training said was possible. I “bonked” quickly on high intensity races and/or long endurance events. The only things that kept me going during these times were high carb fuels and mental strength.
Early 2015, a friend of mine told me about a class she was taking on metabolic efficiency for athletes in Colorado. The company conducting the class was eNRG Performance and they are the founders of the program (Bob Seebohar). I was intrigued and a bit desperate at this point. Attending the class was the best decision I’ve made in a long time. Finally some hope that I could be taken to the next level.
Since the training class, I’ve implemented the nutrition lifestyle on myself and have felt a night and day difference. I broke my personal record at Texas 70.3 in Galveston by 20 minutes! A couple weeks later I won first place overall women and masters at TriGirl Super Sprint. I’ve always dreamed of feeling this good in my training/races and now I do!
Being a mom of two young boys, I know what it’s like to live a busy life. It’s not easy juggling everyone’s schedules and trying to live a healthy lifestyle. I try to help you find balance in it all. I am an IRONMAN Certified Coach. I offer combined training and nutrition options available for everyone.
Every January I always tell myself I’m finally getting into shape and adopting a healthier lifestyle…and every year I end up putting those priorities on the back burner and then ultimately they get dropped all together. This year it feels different “this will be the year”…I 100% believe that, because I found Coach Jessica and Metabolic Efficiency coaching at Baxter Performance. I’m only 2 months into the program and not only is the weight coming off but more importantly I feel amazing. My energy level throughout the day stays steady, no mid afternoon crashes. Every day I feel stronger and ready for the days challenges . Gone are all the little aches and pains I normally have during training. Every morning I wake up refreshed and recovered ready for the next workout. I know it’s only been two months but I feel really optimistic about achieving my goal of adopting a healthier lifestyle in 2017. I only wish I found this earlier. Thanks Coach Jessica. I can’t wait to see where we are in 6 months.
