At Performance Locker we do nutrition education different (well, we pretty much do everything different). We have three main philosophies when it comes to nutrition.
1: Chew Your Food & Stop Dieting
(as in eat fresh whole foods and learn balance so you don’t feel the need to “diet”).
2: Learn the difference between eating to be thin vs. eating to be healthy (we focus on the latter which is fairly opposite from what modern media and marketing tells us).
To help you streamline your nutrition we offer several educational formats but one that is most beneficial to kick-start a lasting, targeted change is a 30 minute Laser Focus session. This is 30 one-on-one minutes with Registered Dietitian Cheryl Bates and the topic of your choice. Maybe you have special dietary concerns, maybe you need help reducing sugar, maybe you need help figuring out how to balance healthy eating with a hectic lifestyle. Whatever topic you choose, Cheryl will help you devise a plan to achieve success. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your Laser Focus Session today!
3. Eating with the Seasons
Let’s think back to our ancestors… they only ate what was in season because that was there only choice… but today when we go to the store, every fruit and vegetables can be found regardless of what time of year it is. By consuming foods that are in season we give our bodies a wider variety of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. Visit the local farmer’s market to get started! You can find out what’s in season, where your food was grown, how it was grown, and who grew it. Freshly picked fruits and vegetables are more nutritious and can eat easier knowing your food didn’t travel 1000’s of miles before reaching the plate. Simply put, Mother Nature knows best; she grows exactly what your body needs, when you need it most. Eating with the Seasons is a simple way to become more in tune and grounded with the world around you. Give it a try and let us know how you feel. Check out our “In-Season” Recipes here and try something new!
We’d like to formally introduce you to our Director of Nutrition Services, Cheryl Bates, MS RDN.

In addition to her career work, she has been instrumental in developing numerous beneficial programs and endeavors. Along with Performance Locker fun, Cheryl presently teaches at Alpena Community College. The transition from the clinical setting to the classroom required a transition from a disease-treatment mindset to a disease-prevention mindset. This shift has fueled the next chapter in Cheryl’s professional career and has renewed a passion to promote the importance and application of good nutrition in everyday life.
