Eddie Fitzgerald has been practicing as a Registered Dietitian since 2018, after completing his Bachelor of Science in Food and Nutrition from Appalachian State University and internships with the United States Army Special Operations Command, Charles George VA Medical Center, and YMCA of Western North Carolina. His interest in nutrition started with a desire to see athletes take their performance to higher levels through proper fueling strategies, and has since evolved into a passion for helping people of all walks of life reap the benefits of a performance-oriented approach. He believes that how we eat and our relationship with food directly affects how we feel both physically and emotionally. Combining an ability to coach individuals through life’s many twists and turns, an evidence-based approach to solution finding, and Motivational Interviewing techniques he meets clients where they are and encourages them to take the right steps towards where they want to be. Movement and training have been a part of his daily routine since he was 14 years old. Over the years Eddie has become proficient in the powerlifts, run track and field, boxed competitively, and recently turned his gaze towards the Olympic Lifts. When he isn’t working with clients, training himself, or in the kitchen, he can be found with his wife and son enjoying the present moment and whatever silliness that might hold.
