Rebecca Elliot, NZ Age Group Winner Taupo 70.3 & PRo RaceR
I went to see Becky when I transitioned from racing standard distance triathlons to the half ironman distance. I needed guidance on ensuring I was adequately fueled for the increase in training load and to develop a plan for pre, during and post racing. Over a number of sessions Becky helped me change my diet to increase the right amount and type of energy I was getting in – the effects of which I noticed immediately in my training. We also developed a comprehensive race plan which I’ve continued to use since. For a sport like triathlon where nutrition is the fourth discipline, I found Becky’s guidance, professionalism and support invaluable, and I believe has been critical to my success in the sport.
Jo's Incredible Iron Maori Journey
The start of my journey happened 4 years in May, I was in a bad and sad place lacked motivation, spirit, love for myself this was due to the weight I was carrying. I needed to do something, I had tried all diets under the sun and yes lost weight and then put it back on, plus more. I had a gastric bypass and the teachings from then have been valuable.
On this journey I wanted and knew that I was not going to go back to the old me, I needed to do some form of exercise, I had done training sessions in groups, run group and then a 1/2 marathon (walk) it was on my list to one day to run this. I made the decision to take part in a training group - the goal was to complete an 1/2 Ironman – Iron Maori Dec 17. The physical training was in place but the nutrition side was lacking for me I was taught to use food as a tool to lose weight, to keep me going every day, to make healthy options to keep my weight at the numbers I liked looking at. I need to find some guidance to change that.
I was recommended to see Becky by a work colleague and my PT trainer Aug/Sept before my event after trying things I knew I had to invest in Becky's assistance to achieve what I wanted to do, " cross the finish line".
My first appointment with Becky was fantastic, we went through my journey what I was wanting to achieve and after looking at my food journal Becky made a few suggestions and we took it from there.
I had a few events to take part in as part of my training programme, 100km bike ride, a training camp 3 days, block training sessions and Becky provided me a plan of how I was going to get through these. My last appointment was mainly about my FINAL event 1/2 Iron man, Becky emailed me a race day plan and I followed that without any hiccups - it worked and I felt great. Since then I have run a 1/2 marathon and am in training now to do another 1/2 Iron man this year with a few other events as well.
Becky's service and her approach to my needs were taken on board in my consultations every time. She was so easy to talk to and listened to what I was wanting to achieve. Becky's services were an added bonus to an awesome year for me. I would recommend The Performance Pantry to anyone who needs guidance to getting the best out of the fuels that they are putting into their body.
Kieran Garcia, Muay Thai Master
"I went to see Becky seeking advice on how to safely cut weight for fights, after a large weight cut that involved dehydration and left me feeling far less than 100% when it came time to compete. While seeing Becky I lost fat and weight while retaining muscle & was able to achieve fight weight while still feeling great and training hard, even being able to eat well on weigh in days.
If you're serious about your sport and performing at your best I would definitely recommend getting in touch with The Performance Pantry!"
LUCY COTTERILL, NZ AGE GROUP TRIATHLETE & COACH
"Becky enlightened me on how to fuel my body to maximise it's output. My body responded within weeks of our first meeting and food became so much easier as a result of her support and forward planning. I was finally able to see results."
