Our objective is to help others fully understand nutrition and importantly create a plan that works for you. We believe that nutrition should be easy and straight forward, but one size doesn’t fit all. There are many ways to achieve your goal, whether that’s for performance or from a lifestyle perspective, Platform Nutrition can help you get there.
Once registered, we will conduct a full dietary analysis on your existing diet and specify what is required to help you achieve your desired goals. We will then create a bespoke nutrition plan and provide you with the tools & education to help you take the first steps towards success. For any plan to work it has to be based around you, your likes, avoid your dislikes and fit in with your lifestyle.

I always thougt that triathlon was purely about swimming, cycling, running and tranisition but Platform Nutrition helped me to further understand my nutritional needs, both for training and for racing. In the past, I never gave it a second thought but the advice and practical tips, have really helped me develop as a triathlete. Thank you so much!

Thanks to Platform Nutrition, my first marathon was a positive experience and a huge success. When it came to implementing a nutrition plan, I had no idea what to do or how to do it - Platform Nutrition made it easy.
Paul Stephens – Marathon Runner
Ultimately thanks to Platform Nutrition, I dropped 10 kg over a 10 week period - from 96kg to 86kg - and 30 months on am happily at my 78 kg fighting weight, having continued to follow the advice provided. I would confidently recommend Platform Nutrition to anyone who wants to eat their way to a fitter, healthier body.
Mark McCadden – Football Journalist
Platform Nutrition helped me take my sport to the next level. Over the course of 8 weeks, the nutrition plan turned me into a leaner athlete. My performance on the field improved significantly, and feeling the obvious changes in my speed and power also gave me a mental edge.

I always struggled with my weight, but this was the year I was getting married and I wanted to look good for the photos. No better goal and thanks to Platform Nutrition, the results were just what I wanted. Easy, straight forward and simple, I couldn’t be happier.
Tony Saunders – Husband
I always thought I ate well and knew what I my nutritional needs were, but PN has opened my eyes to my macro and calorie needs. I now get to eat more and lose the excess weight, what’s not to like? I have more energy during training and have been working on periodising my nutrition with a focus on my A-race. I now count Platform Nutrition as a vital team member and look forward to working towards Ironman in 2018.
Craig Patterson - Age Group Triathlete
I began using Platform Nutrition in the run-up phase for my first Iron distance triathlon. With my weekly consultations and diet reviews, I found that not only did the weight drop-off me (some 10kgs at the end) but Gareth gave me the nutrition know-how to keep it off. Thanks to PN, I not only smashed my 70.3 PB by over 30mins but also completed the Ironman! Would I recommend Platform Nutrition? Unequivocally, yes! Thank you Gareth!
Adam Poland-Goodyer - Ironman Triathlete
Having signed up for my first IM, I needed to change my approach to nutrition. With Platform Nutrition's help, we started on building the fundamentals of nutrition; enabling me to make better everyday decisions.
Gareth provided structured advice that led me to lose 6 kg whilst maintaining bike power and muscles mass.
Thanks to Platform Nutrition, I was able to execute the nutrition plan and achieve my goal of a sub 12 hour IM.
