Claire is not only highly qualified in her chosen field, she is also an GB Age Group triathlete, and a competitive endurance triathlete, having successfully completed over 14 IRONMAN triathlons. 

Claire has extensive experience working within a Sports Medicine Team to help athletes from numerous sports, of all ages and levels of ability. These groups include younger national level, Age Group and Elite athletes from sports such as Triathlon, Endurance Triathlon, IRONMAN, Ultra-running and Cycling. 

Claire’s ethos is to help equip “athletes with the skills and knowledge to confidently be able implement the micro day to day changes to their nutrition around their changing training needs”. 

This means working closely with Sports Medicine Teams, Coaches (including Strength and Conditioning Coaches), an Endocrinologist specialising in sports, a Clinical Psychologist and a Clinical Specialist Dietitian in diabetes and sports nutrition. 

Claire says: “As athletes, we are all striving to reach our own goals and full potential. Whether that be a rookie finishing a first triathlon, completing a century, achieving a long-term goal to race an Ironman or qualify for world championships. With that comes an investment in time, energy and training. Meeting goals can often push us to the edge of what is possible and sometimes this means that our health suffers as a result. Too often athletes experience a mis-match between the energy that we take in and the amount we expend.”
