Sarah Jones

Bio

As a former swimmer turned powerlifter, Sarah’s no stranger to the importance of proper nutrition and its relationship to performance. She realized early she had a duty to be a positive influence for people who also struggle with nutrition. In two short years, she completed her Bachelor’s of Science in Nutrition at James Madison University where she helped conduct exercise science and nutrition focused research with post-bariatric surgery patients. She is currently completing her Master’s degree at Simmons University with a focus on nutrition and health promotion and completing her dietetic internship with Wellness Workdays. As a former TFN intern, she solidified her beliefs that diets are a thing of the past and that solid, consistent changes in behaviors have the greatest chance for long-term success. In her spare time, Sarah likes petting cats, knitting and taking long midnight walks to the fridge (to get fruits and veggies of course).

Philosophy

Nutrition should be easy, we eat since the day we are born. But the hard truth is that for so many reasons, it’s anything but! The lessons we learn as children are carried with us as adults (ever heard of the Clean Plate Club?) and those life-long habits aren’t easy to change. Building better habits starts with small modifications and works towards integrating bigger, better behaviors. Whatever your nutrition goal, you’re not going to achieve lasting results in a few weeks, so let’s work together to set you up for a lifetime of success and yes, that means lifting weights too.
