About Amanda

Amanda Turner MS, RD, CSSD, is a certified specialist in sports dietetics. As an athlete, Amanda knows the amount of dedication required to be successful in any athletic event. As a registered dietitian, she especially realizes the impact of nutrition on success. Since she personally trains in a wide variety of sports, she has been able to experience differences in her personal nutrition challenges when training in different settings.

Education

Amanda completed her Bachelor of Science degree in dietetics at Missouri State University. She then went on to the University of Kansas Medical Center to complete her dietetic internship and Master of Science in dietetics and nutrition. Beginning her career in clinical nutrition, she quickly learned that she preferred working with individuals outside of the hospital setting. Amanda has worked with well-known names such as The Biggest Loser® Resort at Fitness Ridge; Dixie State University™; Curves™ International; and the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center™. What sets Amanda apart, however, is her attention to each individual. Amanda strives to make goals attainable for each person that walks through the door, and she helps coach them through the barriers that get in the way. 


Public Speaking

Public speaking is one of Amanda's favorite areas within her practice. She has experience with groups of 10 to 250 individuals, educating them on a variety of nutrition topics with an emphasis on weight management and sports nutrition. Amanda is a high-energy speaker who keeps the audience engaged and entertained. Past clients include:

  • Competitive & Recreational Adult Team Sports
  • Olympic Athletes
  • Landow Performance LLC 
  • Competitive Crossfit™ Athletes
  • High School Team Sports
  • Ironman™ Triathletes
  • Diabetic Athletes (Types 1 & 2)
  • St. George Running Center™ Clients
  • Wellness Clients (Diabetes Management, Heart Disease, General Health, etc.)

Diet Suggestions

When working with Amanda, she is likely to suggest lean meats, whole grains, vegetables, fruits, oils, nuts, seeds, legumes, and maybe even ice cream from time to time! She realizes that each individual comes from a different nutrition background with different nutritional needs. Therefore, she works with the client to meet them at their current nutritional comfort to improve their nutrition in a sustainable way. While it is preferable to eat a whole foods diet and cook all meals from scratch, Amanda is able to help you find that healthy balance between convenience and health.
