Jessica Spendlove is a Performance Dietitian, Holistic High-Performance Coach and sought-after Speaker specialising in nutrition and high-performance.
For over 15+ years, she’s worked with thousands of high-performing men and women, from CEO’s to elite athletes, who are all searching for success in their chosen fields.
But that’s not what makes Jess different.
What makes Jess different is the fact she’s well versed in the shadow side of high performance, too. She understands the desire for busy, chasing perfection, self-worth, identity, high risk of burnout and increased risk of mental health, all of which she has experienced first-hand and has had to put strategies and boundaries in place. Now, she’s ready to share those with the world.
As seen on leading Australian and International TV and news publications:
That she’ll not only get you to the top – but she’ll help you find the most efficient pathway to sustainably stay there.
Your curated lifestyle program.
I know first-hand the grit, commitment, and determination it takes to perform consistently at your peak. As a teen athlete, I realised winning a race isn’t luck or talent alone – it’s the result of months, even years, of preparation and routine.
Then, as a sports dietitian working with thousands of elite and emerging athletes, I uncovered the next layer of lasting success. Lifestyle and behaviour.
And this is what sets me apart.
Programs and coaching methodologies that infuse high-performance habits and behaviours with joy, excitement, and renewed energy. I deep dive into who you are and what drives you, crafting a custom lifestyle routine aligned with your goals and motivations.
Are we a good fit?
Are you at the top of your game?
Do you thrive in a competitive field?
Are you motivated by both the challenge and reward of winning?
YES? Then you’re exactly where you should be!

Past collaborations & Speaking Collaborations:
“I started to consistently snack on all different sorts of food in between main meals to help me maintain my weight and feel refreshed all day. She made me realise snacking wasn’t always boring and didn’t have to be the same thing all of the time. She simplified it and turned it into something I really wanted to do.”
Callan Ward - Professional Athlete, AFL Player
“Jess trialed a few different things to ensure I was fueling the right energy systems for netball as I hadn't had a bespoke dietician programme or dietician drill so deep into why I was having these issues. Under jess I was able to take my performance to the next with an output that was more consistent than ever.”
Serena Guthrie - Business Woman, England Netball Performance Lead, Retired English Netball Player (Captain)

Kim Green, OAM and former netball champion
