ProSports Nutrition was founded by Nutritional Therapist and Medical Herbalist Antoinette Foster. It was a dream of Antoinette's to develop this side of her business to assist predominantly with horse owners and riders, by improving their long-term health and well-being.
In 2010 Antoinette met genetic scientist Dr Margi Smith and her partner Simone Walsh, it was at this time that she was introduced to the world of genetics and how the science of Nutrigenomics could assist in not only predicting but also preventing conditions in humans. Whilst it has been a long time coming for this side of Antoinette's business to be launched, in her opinion the timing is perfect. As a rider herself she feels that there are many challenges for horse riders to achieve their goals. Getting her own fitness and body right to ride after a serious fall in 2017 has been a massive struggle. She believes it is essential to be able to have a program that suits each individual, this includes, nutrition, exercise, and mental health. ProSports Nutrition offers a range of testing services which include Nutrigenomics, a DNA test, Smart gut testing and the new Puls cardiac test.
Antoinette began her studies in human nutrition but had an enormous passion for the equine. She decided many years ago to combine the two. Antoinette is highly qualified as a nutritionist and medical herbalist with over 30 years experience and has continued her studies throughout her career.
In 2017 Erin Romanin joined the team, Erin is a Clinical Nutritionist with a Bachelor of Health Science: Nutritional Medicine from Southern School of Natural Therapies in Melbourne. She began her studies in Naturopathy, however soon learning that nutrition holds a plethora of weight to health outcomes for the community she decided to refine her studies to Nutritional Medicine.
Erin has had experience with patients from all walks of life. Although she enjoys working with a wide range of people and health conditions, her interests lie in sports performance nutrition and mental health. Being an equestrian herself she understands that it is not only a sport but a lifestyle choice, one in which most commonly we put our beloved horses first. She uses a holistic view on health, with food and lifestyle changes as well as nutritional supplementation for the prevention, management and treatment of the underlying causes of chronic illness as well as maintenance of optimal health.
She has been working with Hi Form for the past 2 years where she has had the opportunity to gain knowledge and insight into equine nutrition and herbalism from well-known Equine Nutritionist and Medical Herbalist; Antoinette Foster.
ProSports has also developed health programs, the first program been launched is the rider and horse health program. This is a detailed, complex program that provides the most amazing long-term support for both the rider and the horse. The program has been developed by both Antoinette and Erin. We look forward to sharing our experience and knowledge with you through the core of wellness.
