Group Coaching Programs

Are you a high school or college runner looking to learn more about fueling for performance? I created these programs to help take the guess work out of fueling, give you a reliable source of nutrition information, and set you up for long term success. 


The Group Coaching programs are 12-week programs geared towards student athletes looking to learn more about proper fueling for performance, build confidence in their fueling choices, and set themselves up for long term success in the sport.

Group Coaching Program Information

The story behind the program:

When I was a student athlete, I struggled with low iron, constantly felt tired or sore, was always getting sick and injured, and felt frustrated that despite all of my hard work, I wasn't making the progress I wanted to be. I also felt confused by all of the conflicting nutrition information out there, and instead of figuring out what worked best for me, I tried doing what my teammates, friends, and other athletes were doing.

When this didn't work, I began working with a dietitian who taught me how to fuel for performance and most importantly, fuel specifically for my own needs. I stayed healthy, got stronger, and ended up taking a full minute off of my 1500 time and almost 3 minutes off of my 5k time. I made NCAA's where I became an All-American. I was amazed, but also frustrated that I didn't know this information earlier. So, I created this program with young Maddie in mind. The goal of this program is to help student athletes gain nutrition knowledge earlier in their career that will help them see success.

Who is it for?

I offer two separate group coaching programs, Fueling Forward High for high school runners and Fueling Forward University for college runners. The group coaching programs are a good fit for athletes who don't feel like they need 1:1 support, but still want to learn how to fuel for performance.

What do we cover?

We will cover a variety of sports nutrition topics specific to runners in high school or college. These topics include but are not limited to:

  • Blood work - what to look for in your blood work and how to know when/if you should supplement

  • Macronutrients for runners - importance of carbs, protein, fruits/veggies and how to build performance plates

  • Micronutrients for runners -  vitamins and minerals specifically for runners, what foods contain them, and how to prevent/correct deficiencies

  • Pre/post run fueling - what and when to eat before and after runs

  • Race day fueling - how to fuel for morning vs night races, and tips for fueling while traveling

  • Hydration - how much should you be drinking, how/when to use electrolytes electrolytes, and more

  • Develop a fueling plan and schedule - how to plan for the week, create a grocery list, and build a schedule for fueling/hydrating

  • Injuries - how to fuel to prevent injuries and how to fuel when you are injured

  • Fueling throughout the season - how fueling needs change depending on where you are in your season

  • Fueling in the dorms - for college athletes, how to navigate the dining hall and dorm friendly snack/meal ideas

How often do we meet? What if I can't make it to all of the sessions?

We will meet once per week over Zoom for 45 minutes. I understand how busy student athletes are, so sessions will be held in the evenings after school/practice. All sessions will be recorded and uploaded to the community page, so if you can't attend all of the sessions that's ok,  you will still be able to get the information!


Do we communicate between sessions?

You will have access to a community page with a chat feature where you can ask unlimited questions. At the end of each session, we will have one "homework assignment" such as drinking more water, eating more carbs, etc. so I will also be posting a weekly check in prompt on the community page.


How much does it cost?

The cost is $297/month for a total of 3 months (12 weeks). This is a lower cost program compared to my 1:1 coaching and is geared specifically towards student athletes who often have less expendable income.

What can I expect from the program:

High school and college runners who have worked with me have found:

  • More confidence in their fueling choices and less stress around food overall

  • A better understanding of how to navigate confusing nutrition information

  • Improved energy, mood, sleep, and performance

  • Less soreness and decrease in injuries

  • An improved ability to hit splits in workouts and run PR's in races

  • An approach to fueling that feels easy, sustainable, and something they can do long term

When does the program start?

The programs will run 3 times throughout 2024:

  • Session 1: January-March 

  • Session 2: March-May

  • Session 3: August-October
