Ed Ten Eyck, MS Nutrition, Clinical Nutritionist, CFNS

World-class athelete and highly experienced coach with a specialty in nutrition and endurance training.

When I started endurance racing in 2008, I was hooked. I’ve represented the USA at the world championship level numerous times since 2012. I’ve also completed numerous 70.3 and full distance Ironman events.

But before that, I was obese. I understand how hard it can be to navigate the confusing world of nutrition. I understand how hard it is to get into the gym. I understand how hard it is to get out of your own head when it comes to setting and accomplishing goals. I understand how difficult it can be to not only eat well, but to carve the time out of life to prioritize health. I understand the pain of an unhealthy body weight. It was difficult in the beginning just to get started. I found a lot of misinformation about what’s right and what’s wrong. So, I’ve dedicated my career to helping people live a healthier, happier life. By combining my extensive background in clinical nutrition, strength training, and endurance training, I design programs to help you surpass your own expectations. I challenge myself to create the best program to ensure you’ll have optimal results.
