TFD was started in mid 2018 and saw rapid success within the Combat Sports Nutrition scene. Since then, team TFD’s client list has grown to include; 2/3 of the active UFC fighters in the Australia and New Zealand region along with many of the Australian and New Zealand athletes competing in ONE Championship, Bellator MMA, Rizin MMA and many local, state, and national level champions in the different disciplines of Combat Sports.
These athletes have chosen to work with TFD because we choose to use Nutrition as a tool for performance and not just as a tool for weight loss. Many weight-category athletes fall in to the trap of only caring about their Nutrition in the weeks prior to their competition. This leads to increased stress, anxiety, decreased training performances, and potentially harmful tactics in order top make their weight class. At TFD, we educate all of our clients on the importance of periodising Nutrition throughout a competition season to ensure they are maintaining a healthy and competitive weight.
This approach allows us to fulfil two of our fundamental principles; Keeping our clients healthy in both the short and long term, and making them better athletes through Nutrition. We have have used this approach with world class athletes to everyday folk who just want to improve their health and as we continue to grow, we will continue to maintain these principles as the focus of our practice.
