Jack Coak MSc, SENr
I originally trained to be a chef when I was 17 but quickly found I was more interested in the science behind what was on the plate. This led to me completing a bachelors degree in Human Nutrition before moving on to complete a masters degree in Applied Sports Nutrition where I became a fully qualified sports nutritionist.
I then founded Jack Coak Performance Nutrition in 2019 with the intention of providing nutrition support to an array of athletes. However this quickly changed when I started working with a few professional boxers where I helped them make weight safely & maximise their performance levels. Being a part of their close knit support team, having such a big impact on not just their performance levels but their lives as well, it was clear to me that I had found my passion.
Despite having no fighting background I have always been a fan of combat sports, especially boxing. I have so much respect for fighters & how dedicated they are to their sport. This is why I have made it my mission to help fighters be the best they can be by providing them with the correct evidence based nutrition support.
Nutrition plays such a crucial role in combat sports. Fighters are challenged with having to fuel their intense training sessions whilst also simultaneously needing to decrease their body mass in order to make an official weigh in weight before a fight. Unfortunately there is so much misinformation made available to fighters which results in them making weight incorrectly which can have negative implications on both health & performance.
I hate witnessing fighters fail to reach their full potential, not getting the results they deserve & putting their health at risk by engaging in poor outdated weight cutting & nutrition practices.
This is why I have made it my mission is to help fighters make weight safely, perform at their best & reach their full potential by providing evidence based bespoke nutrition support.
