I started with Beyond Nutrition last December. My goal at the time was to dial in my nutrition to support my performance goals in the gym. However, since then I have been reaping the benefits of working with my Coach (Scot) at Beyond Nutrition across many more areas of my life. Beyond Nutrition and Scot have been a constant source of support and guidance in helping me to achieve goals both in and outside of the gym.
I achieved my ultimate goal of completing a strict muscle up on the rings, something I have wanted for a couple of years now and something I was able to achieve in under 2 months training at CrossFit West Dublin and working with Beyond Nutrition. My overall strength is continuing to improve as I gradually increase my muscle mass and my capacity to perform gymnastic style movements in conditioning workouts such as pull ups, push ups, ring dips, toes to bar etc. These have all greatly improved which was another one of my goals at the beginning of the year.
What started out as me trying to structure my nutrition in a way that would support my performance goals has trickled into many other areas of my life in a positive manner too. The quality of my sleep has improved, my energy levels and my general mood have also both gone up and as someone who has always suffered with acne since my teens, the quality and texture of my skin has also greatly improved, something I was not expecting at all.
Due to the inclusive and flexible nature of Beyond Nutrition my relationship with food has been strengthened and enhanced. Understanding that consistency is a much better tool for success rather than perfection has been crucial for me in believing in my ability to succeed on this journey. I am enjoying the experience of working with Scot and Beyond Nutrition so much more than I could have ever imagined. I look forward each week to my weekly check in where I can reflect on the week gone by and look to the week ahead excited about what each day will bring, what experiences I can learn from and what successes I will be able to achieve.
My confidence is at an all-time high as I continue to experience progress in ways I never thought I could and while I am looking forward to where I am going I am also ensuring I am appreciating every part of this journey along the way.
