Sports Teams

Proudly working with these professional teams
We love that food can help athletes perform at their best. Jess & Chloe have seen the difference nutrition can make to an athlete’s performance first hand. Chloe and Jess have tried, tested and proven systems which have maximised the performance of some of Australia’s best sports teams. These systems include best-practice fuelling and recovery strategies which have a food first approach & when appropriate feature the addition of evidence based supplementation strategies, which are only ever the icing on the cake.
We offer tailored services to your team depending on needs and requirements

Our Clients

“Jess Spendlove brought a level of professionalism, energy and technical proficiency that was the envy of other AFL clubs. She was described by players as far and away the best dietitian that they had had the pleasure of working with. Whether it was presenting the whole group, 1 on 1 tuition with players, or taking the draftees for cooking lessons she delivered the materials in a manner that made it easy to understand at all levels of the playing group.

 She was very creative, always thinking outside the box. Whether it be sourcing products at a better price, changing things up so that the players never tired of what was on offer, or generally coming at things from a different angle. Her ability to network is also at an enviable level!

 Jess would make any organisation that works with her and her business better.”

Wayne Campbell
General Manager GWS Giants

“Within the high-performance setting, staff can often get caught up in the clinical side of things, without understanding how to apply this to an athlete that could not care less about the physiology of eating for performance.

 I have worked with the Health and Performance Collective for the past 7 years through my time at the GWS Giants AFL team and then specifically hiring them to run my dietetics program at the Parramatta Eels. With the combination of the best evidence-based practice and the ability to generate player buy-in, I have never worked with more capable dieticians to get the outcomes I need for my athletes.

 The Health & Performance Collective team truly understands the high-performance athlete and tailors their approach to each individual to create an environment where eating performance is an expectation, not just a task.”
