How did he do it? Mindset, training, and food.

About Conrad: Conrad is an Accredited Sports Dietitian based in Christchurch. Since the age of 4, Conrad has been playing sports. Participating in everything from rugby and cricket to squash and golf – all at provincial and international representative levels. On top of this, he loves the outdoors, where he surfs and dives (among everything else). More recently, he has run several ultra-marathons and got back into his golf. He is planning to complete The Coast to Coast Longest Day 2024.
Conrad works in professional sports (including the Crusaders and Black Ferns hub) and runs his private practice. He sees a lot of different athletes, from golfers to cross-fitters, to swimmers and weightlifters (and everything in between). He also works with a wide range of endurance and multisport athletes to optimise their performance through nutrition – which we all know is a massive component. You may think that you’re not an athlete, but anyone who exercises with a purpose is an athlete.
His passion for sports nutrition is second to none. He ensures that his clients are not only focusing on nutrition for their chosen sports but have the tools to have a quality of life.
