"My life changes every 6 months, therefore my routine changes, my schedule changes, and then I have to change my workouts."

Adapting To Change

For 10 years Brianne Theisen-Eaton dedicated her life to winning an Olympic medal.  After graduating from the University of Oregon, Brianne went pro signing a contract with Nike and winning a Bronze medal in the Heptathlon in the 2016 Olympics.   

During her professional career she became very passionate about food and healthy eating as it had a huge impact on her performance.  After working with a number of world-renowned scientists and sports physiologists she began to read books, educate myself on nutrition, and create healthy recipes for herself and her husband, Ashton, who was also a professional track and field athlete and a 2-time Olympic gold medalist in the decathlon.

After stepping away from the sport in 2016 Brianne went back to school to become a Functional Medicine Specialist and is working on her Board Certification in Holistic Nutrition. Today, she helps people address the underlying causes of their health concerns (instead of just treating the symptoms and “bandaiding” them) so that they can get well and stay well without unnecessary drugs or surgery. She uses diagnostic tools (lab work, food sensitivity testing, stool testing) to find the root causes and get a whole picture of what’s actually going on in your body.

She lives in San Francisco, California with her husband Ash, and their dog, Zora.

In this episode, Nick and Camala talk with Brianne Theisen-Eaton, 2x Olympian and 2016 Olympic Bronze Medalist in the heptathlon, about adjusting to a well-balanced life after retiring from her professional track & field career.

Learn all about Brianne and what she's up to today.
