Lisa Powell

Nutritional Coaching and Athletic Coaching

As a health care provider, Lisa has long known the benefits of nutrition and exercise for health and disease prevention. She had eaten healthy but was a middle of the pack athlete until discovering the power of nutrition and its effect on performance through timing of meals before, during, and after both training and racing.

Lisa believes a proper nutrition program needs to fit each individual’s lifestyle, whether competing, off- season training, or wanting to change body composition. No matter how well you train, your body is limited but can be optimized with a performance nutrition program designed to meet your goals and needs.

She believes proper nutrition and timing can make the difference between high-level performance and just crossing the finish line. Take your performance to the next level. When you bring your nutrition into balance you can experience greater energy and feel healthier for your lifestyle, training, and race performance.

If weight loss is you goal, she can help you via proper dietary direction that can allow you to realize your ideal race weight and maintain both muscle mass and performance. You can lose weight without fatigue or increased risk of injury.

Athletes train to get in shape and gain that competitive edge. However, nutrition is often overlooked but can make a major difference in performance, injury prevention and overall health. Some athletes turn to supplements or overuse nutrition bars to try to gain an extra edge. They often don’t realize that real food can naturally provide what the body needs. Lisa promotes a holistic approach to meal planning that offers the best opportunity for you to realize dramatic performance improvement.

Lisa came to triathlon as a bicyclist and completed multiple endurance events in past years. When she moved to Texas in 1999 she began running as well and discovered another way to tap into her love for pushing herself to the limit. After suffering an injury, swimming became the best way to maintain fitness and she discovered her inner triathlete. She was soon competing in local races and improved quickly. She now has over 10 years of competitive racing experience and continues to get faster every year. A small portion of her experience is listed below:
