Improve Nutrition to Improve Performance On and Off the Field

OAK BROOK (August 7, 2019) – At Eclipse, we care about the improvement and success of each and every player.  Studies and results continue to show the importance of nutrition in sports.  Recognizing this competitive advantage Eclipse Select has partnered with Michele Fumagalli, RD, LDN of Fit Plate Nutrition.

Michele Fumagalli, is not only a dietitian, former professional/collegiate soccer player and 2018 Crossfit Games Competitor but an Eclipse Select alumni (player and coach).  Michele helped the 1987/88 team win two national championships before having an outstanding career at the University of Notre Dame. We can’t forget to mention her being the original Flip Thrower as well.

“I could not be more excited to help the Eclipse Family improve their game on and off the field.  Nutrition has an immense effect on performance, not only in soccer but in all areas of life.” -Michele Fumagalli, RD, LDN

After hanging up her cleats, Michele worked for Gatorade before going back to school to become a Dietitian.  Fit Plate Nutrition’s mission is to help athletes tap into their full potential, on and off the field, by improving nutrition and hydration.  From pre and post-training/competition meals to hydration, athlete snacks, timing, gut health, half-time fuel, and breakfast suggestions, Michele and Fit Plate Nutrition are here to help our athletes.

Michele admits, her nutrition was far from optimal during her own soccer career. Leaving her to question, her capacity as a player and athlete if she DID in fact have her nutrition in check.
As a Dietitian and former professional athlete, Michele is the nutrition expert in sports nutrition.  She will be sharing her knowledge at practices, in coaching/team parent meetings as well as virtually in our newsletter and social media. Michele is also offering 10% off individualized nutrition coaching for all Eclipse Select Players & Family.

We are grateful for this opportunity and believe this is a game-changer for the club and each players growth and success.
