Alexa McDonald, MS, RDN, CSSD, RYT
I'm a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist (RDN), Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD) and 200 Hour RYT Certified Yoga Instructor (RYT) practicing throughout the Northern & Central New Jersey area. After completing my Masters in Foods & Nutrition from NYU and becoming a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics, I knew I wanted to connect and work with clients, athletes, and teams through more than just my day job. From there, ENW was born.
The complexities of sports nutrition often can't be answered in just a few short questions, and while a team approach is essential, it isn't always comprehensive enough to meet individual needs and ensure personal (and overall team) success. At ENW, I work with both individual athletes and teams to optimize nutrition for peak performance. Through education, resources, and planning, I assist athletes to effectively and practically fuel and hydrate their body through all seasons, so their focus can be winning. With over 7 years experience with eating concerns, I also work with both female and male athletes to ensure proper fueling, prevent/address injury and hormone imbalances, and achieve a healthy relationship with food.
I earned my Bachelor’s in Dietetics from University of Maryland, College Park and completed my dietetic internship with ARAMARK in the New York Metropolitan Area. I currently work with University athletic teams to educate and provide proper sports nutrition. In addition to good nutrition, I'm an avid runner and big fan of yoga, all food, travel, shopping, movies, and ice cream.
