Our Approach

When it comes to nutrition, particularly elite sports nutrition, there is no one solution or strategy that will work for every single client. Nutrition advice and strategies needs to be individualised to meet the needs of each client, and this is the foundation of how we work at Embody. We approach each client with empathy first, to truly understand the role we can play to enhance our client’s lives and work together to meet their goals.
