She spent 15 years working in finance and fund management, when her marathon and triathlon racing led her to see a sports dietitian. The sports dietitian inspired her so much and she saw great changes in her racing and lifestyle she left finance and went back to university to study dietetics. Nutrition has played a large part in her sporting career. She has raced several ironman triathlons, 15 marathons and several ultramarathons.

From Fiona: “I believe food is meant to be enjoyed! Your body will love you and perform for you if you eat a balanced, healthy, colourful, varied diet. Most foods and drinks can be consumed in moderation and healthy eating does not equate to restrictive eating or “dieting”. I have personally experienced and seen in many of my athletes AND non- athletes the training, energy and lifestyle benefits of a healthy balanced diet and firmly believe that no matter who you are you cannot out train or outwit a poor or unbalanced diet, in the end it will catch up with you!”
