"Before I started working with Anastasia, performance-based nutrition was a mystery to me. Despite being a generally healthy eater, I wasn't making the gains I wanted. Anastasia's clear, thorough, and most importantly, science-based explanations and resources helped me understand how to better balance my diet and track my performance to ensure that I am progressing, both in my training and my aesthetic goals. Even while cutting weight, I have continued to make performance gains in all of my lifts.  

The best part about working with Anastasia is that she is extremely approachable and allowed me to move at my own pace, without feeling pressure to change habits faster than I was ready. Anastasia helped me move from very small nutritional substitutions to successfully tracking food, to developing my own nutritional choices based on items I have access to in Bangkok, to naturally adjusting my calorie intake on rest vs training days. Because of Anastasia's coaching method, my understanding of performance-based nutrition is now a sustainable process that I can continue on my own. 

After working with Anastasia, I feel much more comfortable and knowledgeable about making the choices that will continue to meet my goals - both at home and while traveling.  Thanks to Anastasia, I finally feel confident in my understanding of nutrition and how it can support my training, although I know there is always more to learn!"

"Even though she is on the other side of the globe, having Anastasia by my side has been an invaluable and incredible experience. I had barely lifted a dumbbell when I decided I wanted to start building muscle. Anastasia made it clear and enjoyable, and inspired me to continue my journey of strength and health. She took the stress out of diet and exercise, and allowed me to focus on achieving my goals. Anastasia made sure I knew exactly what I had to do - what I should eat and when, and how I should train. She made sure it would suit my circumstances and fit my personal preferences. She made me feel very important and that there was no question too stupid that I could ask. Her biochemist background and involvement as a competitive powerlifter adds to her credibility. I trust her completely and am forever grateful for how she has helped me. I am a stronger person on many levels because of her."

"I love working with Anastasia!  I’ve been an amateur athlete all my life and involved in a variety of sports and extreme adventuring, but switching from bodybuilding to powerlifting has been the most challenging transition I have ever undertaken.  And, I am doing it at age 47 with two busted knees and during one of the most chaotic and stressful times in my life.  But, Anastasia has kept me focused and on track to reach my goals!  In just 6 months, I’ve made incredible gains in all of my lifts, and I feel fantastic!  Even though we’re an ocean apart, she is always accessible, always has creative suggestions that are truly workable options for real life, and is genuinely interested in my success as I define it.  I wanted to work with her because she is an accomplished vegan strength athlete and because her scientific approach to nutrition and training is what gets results.  I am sticking with her because she approaches her clients as individuals with unique lives and needs for guidance, and she motivates me to be the best that I can be.  I also love that she indulges me during our Skype sessions when I ask a million questions about the latest in training and nutrition research."

"4 week update: I've lost 3.8 kg, 5.5 cm around my waist. I feel really strong, can increase my weight at almost every session. Now I can really believe that I can finally achieve my goals."
