*NEW* TriMarni “The Whole Athlete” Course

TriMarni Coaching and Nutrition offers NEW “The Whole Athlete” course! Read on to hear what Marni Sumbal, Board Certified Sport Dietitian says about her course, The Whole Athlete and how YOU can SIGN UP!

***NO MATTER YOUR FITNESS LEVEL OR SPORT GOALS, YOU SHOULD NEVER HAVE TO CHOOSE YOUR ATHLETIC DEVELOPMENT OVER YOUR MENTAL WELL-BEING AND PHYSICAL HEALTH.

The program is called The Whole Athlete and it’s a 6-series online course designed to help athletes understand and work through distorted thoughts and behaviors around food, body image and exercise. By developing a healthier relationship with food and the body, athletes can elevate performance, optimize health and protect mental well-being.

It’s not uncommon for driven athletes to become hyper-focused or obsessed with food and with the idea of controlling eating to reach a performance, health or body composition goal. Inflexible thinking increases the tendency of making decisions with an all or nothing, black or white mentality. As a result, any deviation from self-imposed rules becomes an unacceptable failure. As a result, this adds fuel to the fire and perpetuates a stronger drive toward perfection and control. It can be difficult for the highly driven athlete to accept suggestions or advice from well-meaning professionals – keeping you in a cycle of self-sabotage. 

There’s nothing wrong with being motivated, driven and dedicated. But when a level of perfectionism shows up in your eating habits and exercise regime, being too driven can do more harm than good. Add in the pressure of wanting to be lean due to sport and societies obsession with thinness and you can understand how your good intentions can lead to unhealthy outcomes. 

Taking health risks for a perceived competitive edge will make you lose in the long run. No matter your athletic goals or fitness level, you should not have to prioritize your athletic development over your well-being. 

If this speaks to you, I created a program to help you get more out of your training without compromising your mental and physical health. Through The Whole Athlete 6-series course, you will learn how diet culture, a societal obsession with health and the chase for an ideal race weight are negatively impacting your training, mental well-being and physical health.

Once you understand why you think how you think about food, health and your body, you can fix the distorted views that you’ve developed with food and your body.
