Gavin Allinson - Sports NutritionistGavin Allinson is a certified Sports Nutritionist with the International Society of Sports Nutrition (CISSN). Having studied Applied Biology at Bath University,

initially I used my scientific background selling medical equipment in hospitals.

At an Indoor Rowing Competition I met Steve Backley the 3 Time Olympic Javelin Medallist. I started working with Steve on one of his internet projects and through him I've been introduced to Paul Hurrion Putting coach for Padraig Harrington and Rory McILroy and Matt Lovell the UK Sports Nutritionist

Four Week Fat LossMatt is the Sports Nutritionist for the England Rugby Team and we started working together developing a Fat Loss System

I was providing my marketing and copywriting experience and Matt his technical excellence. As we worked together on Four Week Fat Loss it became apparent that my biology degree was helping me understand a lot of the technical concepts and I was forever quizzing Matt on different supplement and training regimes that I could use personally for my Indoor rowing competitions.

Matt suggested that I become a Registered Sports Nutrionist initially I wasn't that interested as I was focused on developing my other businesses as well as looking after my young son.

However the lure of working with professional sports people became more appealing and i decided to study to become a Certified Sports Nutritionist with the International Society of Sports Nutrition.
