Cam Li winning 66 kg. national title in the Canadian powerlifting competition


"I've put on some good muscle by tracking macros. Lifestyle-wise, I've been feeling more energized and motivated."

Before TEM, I was really lost diet-wise. I didn’t know how to track and what food did to my body. Maria has taught me many things since then. My knowledge now spans from refeeds after short-term weight-cutting strategies (i.e. water loads) to differences between food in their effects on performance. I truly owe my successes to her. And all I can say is thank you.

"I was able to develop a healthy relationship with food and nutrition, maintain a competitive bodyweight for my weight class, and build healthy habits around nutrition."

Maria is a phenomenal nutrition coach if you’re a powerlifter looking to take your training and nutrition to the next level. Maria is goal- and action-oriented, and her protocols are always tied back to the athlete’s goals. She makes sure that we, as athletes, understand the “why” behind the protocol and are equipped with the resources and tools we need to succeed.

"I have way less panic than previously (regarding making weight), I have a much more objective than subjective view to gaining or losing weight."

Maria has helped me lose roughly a total of 10 kg. of body weight while getting stronger. While doing so, Maria has made making weight for competition seamless and improved my overall relationship with food. If you’re looking to properly fuel for performance or even just improve your view of nutrition, I highly recommend TEM.

You’ve got the training portion in the bag, but the other 21 hours… not so much.

Between what your coach ‘can’ recommend to you, the articles you find online, and the swipe posts on Instagram —nutrition feels confusing and all so conflicting. And you’re watching other lifters surpass their potential and walk up to the bar empowered.

What’s the difference? They have a nutrition coach.

Anthony Wong at the 2024 OPA Provincials

Consultations & Packages

Get a professional perspective. Someone who will guide you 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.

You've got questions? I have answers!

If you can’t find your question below, head to the Contact page.

Not at the moment. I have had athletes with health insurance that cover a wide range of health and fitness fees (i.e. health care spending account). In that case, you can attempt to claim it manually by sending your insurance provider a copy of the invoice (always available to you in the client portal). 

To be completely transparent, I cannot guarantee results because it is completely up to you to listen and implement the strategies discussed. Coaching is a collaborative approach to moving forward productively. I also do not offer refunds because work does begin (and doesn’t stop) as soon as athletes are onboarded. 

I run promotions throughout the year, especially at powerlifting competitions for the competing athletes. To receive those notifications, make sure you’re following me on Instagram and have subscribed to the newsletter (at the bottom of the page).

You’re not looking for a coach. You’re looking for a calculator. This a friendly reminder that nutrition runs deeper than calories and macros. The successful athletes you’ve seen on the platform are doing more than reaching their nutrient targets. 

I cannot provide an accurate timeline for anyone (even my current athletes included).  But I will say that results take time and patience. It’s a process more than it is the outcome. 

I won’t speak for other coaches; however, you’ll find that many TEM athletes will tell you that TEM provides flexibility in nutrition programs while instilling a commitment to the big goals. TEM considers factors that profoundly affect nutrition, such as mindset and attitude. TEM is the next level to your regular macro-coach.
