What our clients say
Thanks for everything, Marcia. You prepared me perfectly for the Lake Placid Ironman. I stayed healthy while training, knew exactly what to eat the week before the race and was totally prepared for race day. Our race plan was easy to follow and kept me going all day. Most of all, it is always great to connect with you!
For the past five years, I have worked with Marcia as a coach at the Lake Champlain Women’s Running Camp and as guest speaker on the topic of nutrition for athletes in my Marathon 101 class. She brings a wealth of knowledge, a fantastic energy and sincere compassion to every situation. It is always a joy and honor to work with her.
I’ve known Marcia Bristow and have worked with her for more than 10 years. Her knowledge and passion for health makes Marcia an asset to anyone’s quest for optimum health and performance Marcia Bristow is a very personable nutritionist, coach, mentor and athlete. She is able to connect with her clients, be it one on one or in a group, in a manner that allows people to feel absolutely comfortable. This quality opens the door to “real” learning. Of great importance is her emphasis on food; not as an enemy but as a necessity to live a high quality, productive life.
The team did great and everyone who started finished which I was so happy about. We had some pretty stellar times on our team as well! We had one man run a 2.30 and get third overall! And one of our women came in at 2.55 something! I finished with a 3.30, a personal best for me! Thank you again for helping us have a successful Vermont City Marathon day.
I just wanted to let you know that your advice and help in my preparation for the Spartan Beast last September REALLY paid off! My 1st place finish in my age spanision and 56th out of 539 in the open race spanision as well as in the top 10% of all of the 3500 racers that weekend was a total shock for me. It shows that proper preparation can really pay off! I thank you for your help and advice and assistance in my preparation for the race! It was part of my overall training scheme that allowed me to do so well and have so much fun. Without proper fueling there was no way I could have had such a great time.
