TFD Approved: Tick Tock Nutrition
“Matt was one of the very few people to completely back me and my vision for TFD 100% from the get-go. He is also one of the few people who are in this for the right reasons. He genuinely wants to see his clients succeed and he does this by individually making each meal with fresh local ingredients and then personally delivering them. I am yet to find another company that goes to those lengths for its customers.”

In the first six months of running my business, I had some steep learning curves, but I also made some relationships that have been monumental in the running success of TFD. One of, if not the most important relationships, was that with Tick Tock Nutrition. Before I dive into that, a little back story.
When I started The Fight Dietitian, I was working two other jobs, in a Sport’s clinic and in a private hospital. I was doing the classic work a real job to keep the idea of working your dream job alive. I distinctly remember having a phone call during my lunch break at the hospital to the owner of Tick Tock Nutrition, Matt.
He was calling me because two of my (first) clients were going to utilize him to do their meal prep. Initially, I was extremely skeptical and did not want to share any of my ‘secrets’ with this stranger. However, one of those athletes explained to me they had worked with him for a while and he was worth his height in value, so I made the decision to go with it, and the rest is history.
For anyone that knows the TFD brand, you no doubt know of Tick Tock Nutrition, many people actually think I part-own it due to how much work we do together and co-promotion we do. That’s not the case, and by the end of this article, you’ll see why I choose to continue to back Tick Tock, and trust him with all of my athletes, from the local scene to UFC world champs.
There are some things you’ll never know about Matt because he is too humble to tell you; He started Tick Tock Nutrition from scratch and operates it out of his other business, Sasha’s Fine Foods, a very popular café on Ballina’s main street, he also works weekends managing the local club, coaches and sponsors the Evans Head rugby league club (which he has been a part of for over 10 years) and he does all this with his partner who is currently expecting their third child.
There are also things that have come to be known as ‘classic Tick Tock’ behaviors. These include; driving for 16 hours on delivery days and personally going and saying hello to each person he drops to, sitting in extremely hot rooms with our athletes just to show his support, and driving a collective five hours to watch his athletes compete. I talk a lot about aligning value systems in business and that is completely accurate with Tick Tock Nutrition.
Matt was one of the very few people to completely back me and my vision for TFD 100% from the get-go. He is also one of the few people who are in this for the right reasons. He genuinely wants to see his clients succeed and he does this by individually making each meal with fresh local ingredients and then personally delivering them. I am yet to find another company that goes to those lengths for its customers.
That’s why Tick Tock has grown to not only support elite-level fighters but players from the NRL, Super Rugby, Wallabies, Ironman Series, recreational athletes and countless gyms as well as your everyday heroes like the stay at home mum, office worker or nurse on the night shift. No matter what your goal, Tick Tock will have you covered.
