From Gearoid Towey
“I first met Andrea when I was preparing for the Beijing Olympics in 2008.
I was a non believer in sports nutritionists as I felt they didn’t fully understand the uniqueness of my sport (weight restricted lightweight rowing), so I spent most of career doing my own thing nutritionally. Right from the beginning, Andrea got it and much of her advice and practice was very cutting edge and outside the box. Her advice was way ahead of the curve and she really helped us make our nutritional choices work. She brought us on a nutritional adventure and I could really feel the positive impact”
Can I just say firstly you’re a very inspirational person, one armed with wisdom and knowledge, one who leads the way, and one whom I will follow……….
As a great person once said…”let’s not wait for scientists to figure out what’s wrong with us…lets go do it ourselves and let scientists come and ask us… how we did it”.
“I first met Andrea after been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. I decided to try the nutritional end of things to see if it would help my symptoms. What had I got to loose. Going into the consultation with MS and a variety of symptoms, I walked out a different person, one who just started his journey to full health. What I got from that consultation was much more than nutritional support I gained a belief, an intuition if you like to go for it, to drive forward and take back what I lost, my own birth right, to be healthy again.
Andrea gave me that drive, that energy if you like to start looking outside of the box, to see what’s out there and to believe in what’s out there. I have not looked back. My journey continues…”
Andrea I thank you for your guidance and look forward to working with you in the future. Eugene
From Eoin Rheinisch
I began working with Andrea in early 2009 and I couldn’t be happier with the results I have achieved.
Her nutrition plan is completely specific to me. It focuses on the areas that needed improvement, for example boosting my immune system, increasing lean muscle mass and recovering more effectively after training.
I continue to be impressed by Andrea’s attention to detail, enthusiasm and her genuine interest in improving my sporting performance. Her expertise is not just confined to nutrition but also encompasses other aspects, which have a huge impact on high performance. I feel her knowledge regarding recovery, sleep patterns, stress management, and immune function have helped give me a competitive advantage.
Under Andrea’s guidance and advice, I have noticed a real sense of well-being. I recover faster after each session and race. As well as this, I have achieved my best lean muscle mass scores to date. In the past, I have been prone to illness four to five times a year due to the large volume and intensity of my training. Since working with Andrea and the focus we placed on maximizing immune function, I am happy to say I haven’t been sick once this season.
