connie burkhardt“As you may know, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in June. Before my diagnosis, I thought about the nutrition programs as something that would be important for training or for weight management.  In my case, Emily has made all the difference with managing my disease and with prescription management – who knew?
Immediately after my diagnosis, I started my research on RA and discovered that an anti-inflammatory diet could help me to manage the disease.  I asked Emily to set up my first meeting.  I gave her my list of medications and I kept a food/drink journal.   We discussed everything – the timing of my meds, the side effects, timing of my meals in light of my workouts and, of course, everything that I was cooking and eating out.  Emily had suggestions that I could implement as soon as I left her office.  At each meeting, she gave me a copy of notes from our conversation and it was never an overwhelming list.  Everything she suggested was do-able…and delicious!  I had always snagged the recipes Emily posted by the bulletin board, so we just took it to the next level.
While we were working on an anti-inflammatory focus in my meals, I was still grappling with side effects from the medications.  Emily even solved this!  My doctor loved it.  We looked at all of the medications and supplements I was scheduled to take each day.  She came up with a completely new breakfast plan for me and she recommended the times of day that would be optimal for the medications.  You can ask my husband – or Connie Hornburg! – this changed my post-RA life.  I could finally manage the medications, thanks to Emily.”

I have been at Strongside for close to two months. I have never been in a workout environment that feels so supportive and encouraging. I highly recommend Nutriformance for everyone who is looking for a place to belong.

This is the best lifters gym I've ever been to. There is an almost overwhelming amount of equipment on the upper level.

I like the variety of exercises and intensities, but my favorite part is the technology that allows me to hold myself accountable for my effort and performance.

Great local gym. Lots of weights and machines, friendly staff, and not too crowded.

I am so happy I know this place is here now! I booked a massage with Alexis, I had been in need of one desperately from working at home in the wrong chair for the past few months. She was so kind and intuitive and really knew the exact areas to address. I feel like a new person now, one of the best massages I have ever had! I didn't know they offer pilates here as well and the studio is gorgeous. The atmosphere was great and very clean. I will definitely be back soon!

I couldn’t recommend Alexis (massage therapist) enough. She is kind, professional and knowledgeable every time I see her. She makes me feel comfortable and is mindful of aches and spots on my body that might need more or less attention. I feel so relaxed every time I leave and never want the massages to end. She’s great and I highly recommend her!

The reopening protocols that Nutriformance have implemented are identical to those we are currently using in the professional sports world and my confidence is such that I am completely comfortable bringing my 8- year old son in on a weekly basis to continue his training. The awareness of the staff and their sensitivity to our current health situation are of the utmost priority, based on my observations over the last couple of weeks. If you are an athlete looking to gain a competitive edge over your opponents, a young athlete trying to refine your basic athletic qualities or an adult just looking to stay healthy - I would make Nutriformance my first call.
