P3 Athletica Consulting & Coaching Services

Athletic development should never be confused with athlete development.  You do not need to be a high-level athlete to engage in a P3 ATHLETICA programme.  Indeed, P3 ATHLETICA services are available to everyone, from those just starting out on their health and fitness journey, to experienced athletes looking for a fresh, evidence-based perspective to take them to that next level.  Importantly, because the P3 ATHLETICA coaching philosophy is founded on building healthy humans before anything else performance-related, you don't require any competitive ambitions whatsoever to participate in a P3 ATHLETICA programme.  

No matter where you fall on a spectrum of becoming the healthiest, strongest, fittest version of yourself, a plan can be tailored to suit your needs.

The P3 Athletica Foundation Nutrition Programme

P3 ATHLETICA is a deliberately and unapologetically nutrition-centric athletic development and coaching service, built on the philosophy that you cannot build long-term health and performance on a poorly planned and executed diet.  Consistent performance starts with good health. Good health begins with real food and deep nourishment.  The P3 ATHLETICA food-first approach aims to reinstate nutrition as a key foundation from which health and performance is built (rather than the afterthought it so often becomes) with energy, nourishment, satiety, and the enjoyment of good food eaten in good company, forming the cornerstones of that foundation.  The P3 ATHLETICA Foundation Nutrition Programme is a bespoke plan designed to help individuals reset their base diet with a high level of support during the most critical time that new practices and habits are being established.  

From the first meeting (in-person or video call), New Zealand Registered Nutritionist, Jamie Scott, will work through your health and performance goals, identifying any specific food and nutrition issues, such as energy availability & imbalances, food intolerances, nutrient deficiencies, etc.   Jamie will develop a personalised plan to suit your needs and lifestyle, then work alongside you over a one-month period, supporting and reassuring you through the initial changes, troubleshooting any issues, and adapting the plan as required.  At the end of this process you will be well on the way to establishing the practices and habits of a new food and nutrition foundation from which to continue building your future health and performance.  

Available on a monthly intake basis, subject to capacity


Integrated Performance Conditioning

Possibly the single-most important component of the P3 ATHELITCA  training philosophy is that every element of training is linked and coordinated with a view to improving performance.  Traditionally, athletes and fitness coaches have adopted a unimodal/bimodal approach to training, primarily focusing on the development of only 1-2 performance elements at the expense of others.  If you run or ride, then you run or ride (and may stretch).  

Contemporary training science suggests that adopting a more integrated approach, including a broader range of training elements, is a more effective way to improve performance.  A well-developed integrated performance conditioning (IPC) programme incorporates elements key training areas, including movement quality training, mobility and flexibility work, strength and power training, injury reduction and rehabilitation, metabolic conditioning, and recovery and regeneration strategies.  Throwing together your sport-specific conditioning programme with some infrequent stretching and the occasional gym session in a slap dash manner might work out for you.  But then again, it might not.

Let P3 ATHLETICA build up a comprehensive integrated performance conditioning programme to support your sport and development goals, helping you to make the most of the time and energy you invest in your sport.

Frequently Asked Questions

I already have a coach for my sport.
Can I still work with you?

Yes. Many people have coaches for their sport/event specific programme (e.g. a running programme for an ultra event), but they do not receive any nutrition or performance conditioning advice.
The P3 Athletica nutrition and integrated performance conditioning programmes can be designed to sit alongside any existing sport specific programmes athletes may be following.

Are you a specialist coach in any particular sport?

I am a specialist (registered) nutritionist, and have a strong background in sport science and thus physical skills training. But I am not a technical skills coach in any particular sport (except mountain biking). I consider myself a 'specialist generalist', meaning I specialise more in the development of physical skills and general athleticism, which can then be transferred into the technical mastery of a particular sport, potentially under specialist technical coaching in that sport.

Do you sell supplements?

I will recommend nutrition therapy and performance supplementation from time to time where it is appropriate and indicated.  I do not, however, sell supplements directly myself.  Where supplementation is recommended, I work with the client to source the best quality supplement required, at the most affordable price, but they purchase this directly from the retailer themselves.  I do not sell any product or service for commission or otherwise, beyond my own coaching services.

Do I have to do any nutritional lab testing?

No.  I do not offer or sell any direct-to-consumer testing (e.g. nutrient deficiency testing, hormone testing, etc.).  Apart from being expensive, some of these tests can be unreliable.  There is also a conflict of interest whereby I, as the practitioner recommending the test, also profit from the promotion and sale of such tests.  If any testing is required, I will work with my clients to find the best and most reliable testing available, typically through their primary health care provider, which they purchase directly.

Are there any fixed term contracts?

The foundation nutrition programme runs for one month (4 weeks, paid in advance), and subsequent coaching plans start with a 1-3 month commitment depending on the coaching level chosen. 
You are free to cancel after the initial commitment period you have signed up for.  Please note that cancelling your coaching plan also ends your access to the members-only area and the information and resources contained within.

How do I signup?

Fill in the form via the contact page and I'll be in touch (generally within 24-48 hours).  If you have not received a replay from me after 7-days, please check your junk/spam mail folder.  Unfortunately, my email address has a tendency to trigger alarm bells on many recipients email addresses.


Terms of Service

First Consult
The first meeting can take place in-person, or via Zoom/Skype.  This consultation gives the coach a chance to assess and advise on a potential plan based on the clients needs, wants, and goals.  While there is no obligation to proceed with this plan, you may however be required to pay a fee for any extensive advice given during this first meeting if it is deemed to constitute a consultation. 

Coaching Packages
Monthly coaching packages are only available to clients who have been through either the Foundation Nutrition Programme or have received an Integrated Performance Conditioning programme. Monthly coaching package subscriptions are invoiced monthly in advance. 
You are free to cancel before the end of each month and the next billing cycle.  However, no refund will be given for any part-month not used, and cancelling your subscription cancels your access to any of the platforms and portals used to deliver any P3 Athletica service and your access to any information you have stored on these.  If your service is cancelled by P3 Athletica, you will receive a refund for any coaching services paid for on a pro rata basis.

Buyer Beware
Clients who indicate they intend to purchase any P3 Athletica coaching package, and who receive any advance input and materials based on that interest, will be charged at the standard consultation rate, plus any material costs, for that time and material if a coaching package is not subsequently purchased as indicated. 

Payment
Once we have agreed to engage with each other, an invoice will be issued and payment for the agreed services is required within 7-days of invoice receipt of this invoice. Payments can be made via bank transfer or credit card.

Non-Transferable 
No P3 Athletica service or coaching package is transferable to another individual.

Additional Services
Clients can request services beyond the scope of the outlined and available coaching packages (e.g. 1-on-1 training, field testing/training, race support or advanced fitness testing) at an additional fee for the time incurred for these services (POA).  From time-to-time, such services may be given by the coaching staff, where applicable and appropriate, as a value add.
