Grow Your Nutrition Business Podcast Episode 99: How To Get Your Staff On Board With A Nutrition Coaching Program In A Gym With Healthy Steps Nutrition Mentor, Lindsay McDonald

Today’s guest is our longest-standing mentor and chief of staff, Lindsay McDonald.
She has helped every gym owner launch their nutrition programs, and she is the main point of contact for gym owners as they are going through training. Let’s just say she is a rockstar!
In today’s episode, Lindsay and I discuss some critical practices to increase staff buy-in and grow your nutrition program in a gym.

As a gym owner, you don’t need to be involved with the day-to-day when building a nutrition program, but you do need to support the coach who heads up your program.

In today’s podcast, Nicole Aucoin and Lindsay McDonald discuss some of the best practices we teach gym owners and coaches in the Healthy Steps Nutrition Mentoring Program.

Meet Barry and Jocelyn, Owners of CrossFit Generation, 14-Year CrossFit Affiliate

Jocelyn and Barry opened up CrossFit Generation in 2007. They felt like they mastered delivering the fitness but nutrition was the missing piece. 

They ran challenges but never had a formal program to deliver a professional service to their clients until partnering with Healthy Steps Nutrition. 
 
She even did some nutrition coaching but it wasn’t a big part of the gyms she worked at. She was spending a lot of time creating content and resources to give her clients. 
 

“The Healthy Steps Nutrition Program provided us with the structure and a guide to take our nutrition program to the next level.” Jocelyn Weidner 

 
Today, Barry and Jocelyn have a team of six coaches to deliver their nutrition coaching program to all of their members.  
 
 
Healthy Steps Nutrition provided the systems, content, and ongoing mentoring allowing the nutrition team at CrossFit Generation to deepen the relationship and connections with their clients to truly transform their client’s health and lives.
