Pooja Mansukhani is a Registered Dietitian and fitness enthusiast who works with clients to help them feel their best physically, mentally, and emotionally using individualized nutrition approaches.
In her spare time, Pooja teaches spin classes and volunteers with the Sport Nutrition Network of Dietitians of Canada. She is currently enrolled in an internationally recognized 2-year Diploma program in Sports Nutrition through the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Pooja received a Member Recognition Award in the category of Innovation from Dietitians of Canada in 2016.
Pooja enjoys cooking but is a minimalist in the kitchen and is always on the lookout for quick, easy, and nutritious recipes. She and her husband prep almost all of their meals on weekends so that they don’t have to worry about dinners when they get home from work late, or lunches for the next day. Pooja’s favourite kitchen appliance is her Vitamix blender. Her quick breakfast go-to is a mix of coconut and almond milk, protein powder, chia seeds, nuts and berries prepared the night before, and no matter, Pooja always has a vegetable on the side. Yes, you read that correctly, vegetables for breakfast is one of her number one tips for feeling great throughout the day, but if that’s not your thing, there are alternatives!
Pooja believes that good nutrition should not only nurture the inside of the body, it should also be reflected in one’s overall mood and energy levels. She seeks to empower her clients to manage rather than control their food choices as they navigate their daily lives. Pooja is continually amazed and inspired by the way the human body adapts and recovers when exposed to various nutrition and exercise stimuli. She believes that results come from individualized training and coaching which is why she works with her own personal fitness trainer and trains at Studio79 weekly. Pooja is excited to work with clients to help them achieve their health and well-being goals through customized nutrition coaching that complements Studio79’s personal training.
