Our Philosophy


At Life + Performance Nutrition we believe food is just food, there is not good or bad food. Different foods nourish and support our body and mind in different ways. There is a place in a healthy diet for all foods.

Healthy and balanced nutrition with a food first approach is what we do, fad diets are not. We support individuals in finding the best nutrition strategies that work for them to maintain health, prevent chronic disease and get the most out of life and sports performance.

We focus on incorporating whole foods in everyday life by zooming in on each client's unique needs, goals and lifestyle. 

Marzia's Story

Marzia has grown up in Italy, where food is an integral part of culture and life. She learnt to cook and enjoy all types of food at a young age. Food was not the only integral part of Marzia's life, so were sports. From gymnastics to swimming, tennis, running, cycling, skiing and hiking, Marzia has been involved in sporting activities all her life.

When her passion for tourism marketing ended, she turned her focus to nutrition and its role in our bodies, minds, health and sports performance. After completing a Bachelor of Health in Nutrition and Dietetics, Marzia is now and Accredited Practising Dietitian and a Sports Dietitian, helping people find their path to health, wellbeing or that competitive edge in sports performance.

Nutrition plays a key role in mental health. Young people today face increased pressure to perform in life and in sports and suffer from anxiety and depression more than ever before. Marzia is skilled in helping people of all ages with eating disorders find their way to nutrition that supports physical and mental health. She is particularly passionate about helping young athletes support their performance through balanced nutrition whilst nurturing their relationship with food and body.

Marzia has a passion for things cycling, whether it is on the road or on the trails. Nutrition plays a key role in health and performance. Marzia is proud to be sponsoring the Women Racing Project and supporting them in striving for that podium finish through optimised fueling strategies on and off the bike.
