Sustainable & impactful nutrition coaching for powerlifters

Here's that sign you're waiting for...

If you're a powerlifter, struggling to reach your potential,
it's time we work together.

Monthly Coaching

Create a strategy, build life-long habits and stay accountable.

Maximize the process and outcome with a dynamic approach and support. Step away from the red lights and overwhelm. And move forward with white lights, clarity and direction. Don’t worry – there’s a tier for just about every competitive powerlifter.

Consultations & Packages

You need a professional perspective. Someone who will help you figure out how to move past “starting all over” and bring you closer to the person you want to become in 6 months. But here’s the thing – you can stay accountable to a program, troubleshoot the small stuff along the way, and you don’t need to be checked in on.

Let's see you thrive (just like them)!

Feel like a pro but need a tad bit of an educational push (aka recipe collections and making meal planning easier).

I’m Maria (Tobias), the powerlifting nutrition coach for powerlifters.

I ended up cutting weight numerous times.

Instead of winning gold medals, I created a negative relationship with my body and nutrition. I realized that not only had I been focusing on the wrong number, but I had been hyper-focused on the wrong aspect of the sport. I’m a competitive powerlifter and a powerlifting referee. I firmly believe that powerlifting is a sport of strength; however, that may manifest.
