How Trailblazer can help you

Trailblazer Nutrition can help out every endurance athlete, whether victory means coming first or just getting across the finish line.

A personalised nutrition plan from Trailblazer Nutrition can:

1. Give you that extra 5-10% of conditioning vital for podium finishes.
2. Help you get fitter, faster.
3. Make training for and completing an endurance easier and more enjoyable.

  • How do we do this?

    At Trailblazer Nutrition we are endurance nutrition experts. Our dietitian Tom Shand will create you a personalised nutrition plan (forget the generalised nutrition information you have previously got off the internet) so that you can optimally fuel yourself throughout your training and racing cycle.

    By getting a personalised nutrition plan from Trailblazer we guarantee:

    - That you will notice an improvement in training quality or race day performance, and that you achieve your event goals.
    - That you will get the spark back in your day after long training sessions.
    - Reduced muscle soreness after training.
    - Improved quality of your training so you get fit faster.
    - Improved overall health.
    - Decreased risk of injury.

     

     

How do we do that?

We make nutrition plans personalised just for you.

We take into account your physical characteristics, competition and training schedule, event type, event goals, nutrition environment, and current nutritional practises to make an easy to follow plan which will drive your body to perform better than ever before. 

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Step 1

Choose the plan that suits your needs from the slide show above, or click here.

Step 2

Fill out the online questionnaire so that Tom can create your personalised plan (no need to leave the chair you are sitting in right now).

Step 3

Sit back and wait, within 5 working days Tom will create your plan and send it via email as a PDF.

This whole process has been streamlined to make it as easy as possible for you to achieve your endurance potential, but if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Trailblazer Values

Trailblazer Nutrition is the culmination of our passion for sport, sports nutrition, and endurance events. We are proud of our nutrition plans and our aim is to make expert sports nutrition available to every weekend warrior and elite athlete.

Our core beliefs are as follows:

Everyone should have access to sports nutrition advice

Sports nutrition is simple, natural, and does not require expensive pills, potions, or fad diets

Sports nutrition should be personalised and the nutrition plan should work around the individual, rather than the individual working around the nutrition plan.

We are constantly refining our plans in order to bring out the best in you, no matter what your time constraints or budget may be. We know your plan will make a difference. You will train better, perform better, and get more out of your endurance event experience and sport. We are so confident that one of our personalised plans will work for you that if you don't notice a difference in training or race day, we will refund your money.

Countdown to Challenge Wanaka

My name is Bridget, I decided to enter the Wanaka Challenge Half Ironman a few months ago and have been chipping away at training since. During the day I work as a solicitor which keeps me pretty busy. I am married to Jesse and we have a Spoodle called Oscar who is awesome. Our weeks are pretty busy with work etc, we also spend a fair few of our weekends in Central Otago. I am not good at getting up early in the morning for training and I get cranky if I don’t get enough sleep!

I've got my eye on the London marathon 2014, but need to confirm a starting spot in that, which isn't a walk in the park.

This weekend was Spring Challenge weekend. Spring Challenge is an all woman adventure race run by Nathan Favae and wife Jodie. There are 3, 6 or 10 hour options each involving a combination of running/hiking, mountain biking and rafting. This year the event was held in Gibbston Valley near Queenstown. It is the 3rd year I have competed in it.

Goal setting, and why it works

Posted by Tom Shand on 26 January 2014

Tags: , ,

I recently did a half-marathon that turned out to be a great example of two things – the importance of setting appropriate goals, and the importance of doing warm up events. Today’s topic will be on goal setting, and I’ll follow it up shortly with a blog on what I learnt from doing a warm up event.
