For those that just need to check-in and drive their own journey, with casual support.
Note: these costs do not include services such as race plans, meal outlines or anthropometry measurements. See ‘additional services’ for more information on these. (Link to ‘additional services section.’)
An initial consultation is a vital part of your nutrition journey. Whether you are after a one-off or as part of a package, the initial consultation is essential for our understanding of you as an individual for us then to create a nutrition strategy that is personalised to you.
What to expect in the initial consultation
An in-depth review covering weight history, medical history, supplement use, living situation, exercise regime and diet history.
Goal setting and a nutrition plan to educate and 'connect the dots' based on the review.
After the consult, you will receive an overview of what was discussed, as well as any other documents that would be applicable in assisting you to meet your goals.
What do I need to do prior to the consultation?
Complete the initial survey and agree to the Ts & Cs—all will be provided.
Book a consult using the link provided with the survey—indicate whether it is in person or online—both are available.
Fill out the diet history provided with the survey for the week (or days) prior to the consultation and send that to Conrad or Lucy the day of the consult.
If you have any recent medical documents, blood test results, or training programs bring these with you. These can be helpful (but are not essential) in assisting with the accuracy of the assessment and therefore the recommendations made for you.
How long is the consultation?
Initial consultations normally take 45 minutes but sometimes can take up to an hour, depending on each individual's needs. We allow time if this does go over the allocated 45-minute slot.
What about a follow-up consultation?
As much as I would like to give you all the advice you need to meet your goals in one session, it is important to understand that nutrition is a work in process. Follow-ups are an important part of the process to review what went well, and what things were difficult, as this helps you to understand what the best method is and focus for you to move forward.
FOLLOW UP CONSULTATIONS
This is a review to assess and adapt any previous recommendations from an initial consultation or another follow-up consultation. This is for casual clients or those that are part of the 3 or 6-month package.
What is the difference between the 30 and 45-minute follow up?
A 30-minute consult is the time we would allow for a follow up consult if we are reviewing goals, diet history and other influential factors. In the case where you may have had a bit more change in circumstance since we last spoke (i.e. changed living situation) we would advise an additional 15 minutes to cover these changes and understand them better. In simpler terms—if you are following up within 3 months with no significant life changes, 30 minutes will be sufficient. If you haven't had a consult for over 3 months, or there have been life changes, book a 45-minute consult.
PAY UP FRONT
This is a fantastic option if you want to commit to a few sessions but want the flexibility of when to use these—ie more or less frequently than a monthly package. This option will discount the current cost and guarantee you the current price (as these can change over time). Sessions will expire after 12 months of your initial consultation.
If you are unsure, please talk with Conrad or Lucy about what package options may suit you best at your initial consultation (we do suggest you have an idea about our options before our consult).
