“I have known Tamara for at least 6 years – in this time I have seen her talk the talk and walk the walk but I had not taken the opportunity to work with her until this last spring. I believe she doesn’t ask her clients to do anything she hasn’t done herself. She is knowledgeable with a no-nonsense attitude, offering a direct approach, with some tough love. She is professional, a caring individual with a huge heart that always has her client’s best health interest in mind.
I approached Tamara looking for direction while I was preparing to compete in my third Figure show in Spring 2014 after working with another “sports nutritionist”. I was stressed and frustrated with my lack of progress and felt like I was in limbo. I felt I was lacking in the nutritional guidance I needed and was very anxious about how things were not progressing as I thought they should.
The first official meeting I had with Tamara, we discussed how I had been eating and what needed to change. Tamara has a “take charge attitude” – and told me, “not to worry about a thing – that was her job.” When I knew that my diet was in Tamara’s hands, my training became stronger. It was like a ‘weight’ was lifted from my shoulders and I was able to put more energy into my training.
Tamara is on point, gives encouragement and explanation when needed and is quick to answer any questions you may have. She has helped me build a healthy metabolism and stay healthy in between shows. She has taught me how to eat that is conducive to my training regime both in training season, post show (extremely important) and off season and explained ‘why’ this is important. My “before Tamara” and “after Tamara” pictures demonstrate the change in my body and the progression of my journey thus far.
Tamara has opened my eyes to nutrition, taught me ‘how to eat’, all the while keeping my body healthy and bringing it where it needed to be for show presentation.
Tamara is a woman of integrity and dedication and has a passion for the health and the well-being of each and every one of her clients. I would not hesitate in recommending her services and expertise to anyone – I actually encourage you to utilize her knowledge – you won’t regret it.”
