    nutrition for weight loss

    It’s a new year, and along with it comes a renewed enthusiasm to lose weight, get stronger, feel better, and perform better. While putting in valuable hours at the gym is certainly important and necessary, putting the right foods and supplements into your body to aide those efforts is absolutely vital. That’s where Dr. Gabrielle Fundaro comes in.


    Dr. Fundaro is a Renaissance Periodization coach, as well as an Assistant Professor of Exercise Science, Georgia Gwinnett College. In addition, she is a certified Sports Nutritionist , holds a PhD in Human Nutrition, and has her Bachelors of Science in Exercise, Sport, and Health Education.



    For her Nutrition for Athletes Workshop, she will be covering nutrient timing, the best (and worst) supplements for athletic training, how to effectively make weight for competitions, how to manage your weight without sacrificing energy and performance, and more!

    This workshop is designed for people of all ages and athletic abilities, but have the common goal of wanting to look and feel their absolute best. While the coaches at Straight Blast Gym are experts in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Kids Jiu Jitsu, Cardio Kickboxing, and more, Dr. Fundaro is being brought in to complement our knowledge of physical training with her extensive knowledge of food and how it effects our bodies and athletic performance.

    The workshop will run from 10am12pm, and will include a Q&A section. Because of limited space at the gym, we will have to put a hard cap on admission. To reserve your spot, give us a call at (770) 277-8741.
