Crossfit Sheffield is excited to introduce Lucinda Whittaker BSc (Hons) NTDip CNM mBANT, a Nutrional Therapist, who will offer individual and tailored nutritional support to our members to support them in their CrossFit training, health and everyday life. Alongside a full consultation, she uses state of the art body composition analysis  to monitor clients progress through measuring body fat percentage, lean muscle mass and hydration levels.

On Monday 23rd September at 17:30, Lucinda will be holding a 30 min presentation with Q&A afterwards. She will be talking about general health, wellbeing and also how to use nutrition for performance and results. Included will be some top tips for pre and post workout nutrition and supplement advice. All who attend can put their names into a hat to win a body composition analysis worth £20.

Lucinda has a BSc (Hons) in Sports Science and Physiology along side her Nutritional Therapy certification and was a semi-professional rock climber for 12 years. She was British Indoor Climbing Champion and British Bouldering Champion in 2003 and has represented Great Britain for 6 years in both disciplines. In recent years she moved away from competition climbing and pursued more hard and dangerous routes outdoors around the world. Alongside this she help to set up The Climbing Works in Sheffield with her husband Sam, where she is also a climbing coach and a coach for the GB Junior Bouldering Team.

She found CrossFit when she met Sam Briggs (2013 CrossFit Games Champion), at a wedding whilst she was pregnant with her son and pledged that as soon as she was able she would start Crossfit. Now she’s an addict and enjoying her return to fitness and climbing.
