About me

Hello! My name is Ross, and I am a SENr graduate registered sport and exercise nutritionist, an ISAK level 1 anthropometrist, and a UK Anti-Doping accredited adviser.

I currently work as the lead nutritionist for Wasps Junior RFC Academy whilst running my own 1-1 sports nutritionist consultancy, Perform Nutrition. Here, I provide sports enthusiasts, recreational, competitive and elite athletes with 1-1 nutrition support to improve their sports performance or reach their athletic goals, such as gaining lean muscle or losing body fat. The support I provide is personalisable, based on your goals and the amount of support you desire.

I adopt an evidence-informed approach to my practice. This means that I base my recommendations and support on the best available, current, valid and relevant nutrition science, which I have adopted following my MSc in Applied Sport and Exercise Nutrition.

If you are interested in working with me, please do not hesitate to contact me by email or phone, and I will respond within the day. Thank you!
