Client Reviews

I have not been in the habit of asking clients for reviews after working together. However understandly this is useful for prospective clients, and so have started recently.

I continue to use what I learned from working with you and I really value the knowledge and the adjustments to how I eat. Thank you again for all the time and care over the months we worked together. I appreciate it!

Thank you Tom. I have had a solid experience with you and your nutritional guidance. Not only did I achieve my desired nutritional and weight loss goals, I also learned how to effectively fuel workouts, recover faster, and utilize supplements. I am climbing stronger (and lighter) than I did when I was much younger.

Working together with Tom has been a great experience and I am truly happy I reached out to him. For whatever reason you are thinking about nutrition coaching if it is to optimise performance, body composition or get a healthier relationship with food it is worth it. Tom's commitment exceeded all my expectations. I have learned a lot during our time, one of the biggest lessons I take with me is realising how much I was underfueling my training. Tom helped me set new targets and showed me how energetic, strong and happy I can feel. During our work he was always there to support and make sure I was ok. It was a massive help to have someone with Tom's knowledge step in and encourage me to keep going when I otherwise would have fallen back to old habits. For me it was easy to open up and trust Tom to help me, I think that's because Tom's genuine wish to help really shines through.

When I started working with Tom it was sort of out of desperation. I had inconsistent eating habits, didn't know how to fuel for my training and was miserable about the relationship between what I ate and how I felt about myself. I couldn't have hoped to have gained as much as I did from the coaching. I know how to consistently fuel myself for training so that I can do myself justice and I enjoy doing so. I would unreservedly recommend Tom. He takes an evidence based approach and combines it with empathy and a desire to help. Tom is not just a quick fix or diet plan - although he did help me to achieve results quickly. He helped me to lead in making my own changes and taking control of my own nutrition so that I no longer need the coaching and feel empowered to fuel my body for climbing going forwards.

I started working with Tom as I’d set myself a goal of breaking into a new sport grade on an upcoming trip to Margalef and Rodellar. I was already working with Lattice for my training, and things were going well, but I was curious to see what else I could improve or optimise. At the beginning of the process, I thought I was in good shape. I weighed around 57.5kg (I’m 163cm), very lean and low body fat but felt strong. My diet was filled with whole foods and I tended to avoid anything I considered to be ‘crap’. I was quite militant! When we started working together and I kept a food diary, it became apparent right away that despite the quality of the food I was eating, I was under-fuelling my training, and also my recovery. Tom set me some goals - broadly, increasing my overall energy intake, reducing my protein (which I was massively over-shooting) and upping my carbs and fat. It felt like a big jump - but I trusted the process. The impact on my training and recovery was immediately noticeable. I had more power in my sessions, and was able to recover faster in between. Initially, I gained about 0.5kg, yet felt stronger (and my training output increased in both quality and metrics). I did a very short but hard deficit before my trip to polish things off. By the time I left, I weight around 1.5kg more than I would normally be for a sport trip. Again, I trusted the process and tried not to worry about it. The results spoke for themselves. On the trip, I was able to put in far more quality redpoint attempts on hard (for me) projects, and my recovery between days was hugely improved - something I’d always struggled with. The biggest improvement has been my relationship with food - I’d always considered it healthy, but in hindsight I can recognise restrictive behaviour, how guilty I felt even having an occasional treat, and how it impacted my mental health, being so concerned with staying as lean as possible. I’ve since realised it’s just not necessary, and actually it’s quite annoying that I limited my potential during months (even years) of training! Tom was so supportive and compassionate throughout the whole process. He was always there to answer my questions, doubts, concerns, or just check in with me to see how things were going. I can’t recommend Tom enough - if you have a goal, he’ll go out of his way to help you achieve it.
