A dynamic educational speaker.
awn Weatherwax is a dynamic educational speaker that brings to life sports nutrition. A nationally recognized subject matter expert on sports nutrition and wellness for over 20 years, Dawn breaks down common myths, internet fables, and miscommunication. Fellow sports medicine experts continually request Dawn for her ability to take complex nutritional issues and break them down where athletes, coaches, and parents can follow specific guidelines contributing to overall success. I have attended multiple conventions with Dawn and common themes always arise: outstanding detailed presentations, well versed in latest nutrition trends, and ability to communicate effectively. Dawn has worked with clients of all ages and body types. She is always egger to discuss the whole athlete and she takes professional pride in enjoying their successes. As an author, national spokesperson, and clinician Dawn has the experience, professional delivery skills, and knowledge, to make others better health care providers for their own clients.

I used NCAA Speaker Grant money a few years ago to have Dawn Weatherwax from Sports Nutrition 2Go to do a nutrition education presentation at the University of Cincinnati and it was deemed such a meaningful, appropriate and worthwhile component to include in the Life Skills program that we set aside a portion of the SAOF for SN2Go to be able to do individual team and group presentations and the reviews from the student-athletes and coaches have been extremely favorable and complimentary.

The information Dawn Weatherwax, Owner of SN2Go presented covered many different aspects of nutrition and hydration and was presented in a way that everyone in the audience could understand. The early August presentation was perfect because we were just beginning our presentation conditioning for fall sports plus we were able to get many parents, athletes, and coaches to come down. SN2Go's team does a great job presenting and is extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend SN2Go and their variety of presentations to any sports organization (high school, college, pro, club, etc.). This information is invaluable.
