If you were to boil down success to one simple ingredient, it would have to be energy.
Energy fuels everything from stamina to creativity. It’s what keeps us trying, and wanting to try.
Energy is a multifaceted concept that needs four key ingredients to survive:
nutrition, sleep, movement, and mindset.
You’ll feel stronger, clearer, and more motivated than ever before. The best part? All of these tools are readily available within you: the levers are in your control.
A loop of energy production
In science, the concept of ‘kinetic energy’ is the production of energy based on motion. To think of it simply, an atom gathers speed and strength the more it moves – the faster it goes, and the bigger it gets, the stronger in kinetic energy it becomes.
Over my years working with professional athletes and high-performing business people, I started to see the theory of kinetic energy come to life.
The more effort my clients put into their nutrition, sleep, movement and mindset, the more energy they had. And the more energy they had, the more they could dedicate to their health. It was this wonderful loop of health and success.
Sustainable, simple, successful.
The Stay At The Top Method was created when I realised how many successful people were burning out as they reached the top. They would adopt crazy schedules to fast track their success, and then drop off from exhaustion.
Instead of creating a sustainable ‘loop’ of energy building, they would race to the top – then fall all the way back down again.
So, I focused on creating evidence-based unique routines that are sustainable, simple, and successful. And enjoyable. Because if you’re not having fun, why bother?
Our Journey Together
I see my client’s program with me in three stages.
Step one is a comprehensive ‘life audit’. I will deep dive into your sleep frequency and quality, your day on a plate, allergies and health issues, your mental health and mindset, and how you move your body. Together, we’ll ‘decode’ what your body has been telling you and develop more self awareness – the greatest superpower of all.
This is when the fun begins! Combining my scientific knowledge with real-world experience, I’ll curate a customised program that will start to move the ‘levers’ of your four energy sources – sleep, nutrition, mindset, and movement. Once we find the right balance, you will start to build up your natural resources and tap into a ‘loop’ of natural energy.
After completing our training program, you will discover a new version of yourself. An elevated version. One who has strategies and tools they easily embed everyday and a toolkit of additional to call on, or update as needed. You are not a robot, but an evolved version of yourself.
What makes my method so different?
Curated lifestyle formula
Here’s what people rarely do in this industry: listen. Like, really listen. No two people are the same, and their triggers to success are so wildly different that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. We find the first – and most accessible – domino to push that will hopefully start a chain reaction of successful behavioural shifts.
Unlike other coaches, I have incorporated an upfront assessment period before kicking off any active work together. I believe the more we know, the more accurate my recommendations will be. All you need to do is be honest and open about where you’re at and where you want to get to.
‘Perfect’ is not healthy.
I’m a realist. I have seen, over and over, how rigid commitments to certain diets, training, or self-improvement routines usually end in disaster. I don’t ask you to aim for perfection; I ask you to commit to trying. We’ll work on self-awareness and being your own guide for healthy habits.
Stay in my lane.
Just as I coach and teach about optimal energy, I’m conscious of where I invest mine. Working with high achievers in demanding and competing environments has been my niche for over a decade. I know who I serve and am selective with clients to ensure you get the best, energised version of me.
“Best dietician I have had in my career.“
Phil Davis - Recently retired AFL Player, Captain of GWS Giants
“I trust what Jess is telling me but also now utilise Jess's experience for my own clients.”
Brett Deledio - Player Agent, Retired 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)
“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
“Fantastic. Jessica kept it simple but not boring - she allowed moments of fun within nutrition which made it more sustainable.”
Kim Green, OAM and former netball champion
“I feel empowered to make the right choices, and am equipped with the tools to navigate diet and nutrition. I’m also totally confident in my supplements from both a performance and safety point of view.”
