"The staff is knowledgeable, energetic, and passionate about health and wellness. They provided my 10 year old son with valuable motivation and personal attention in achieving his health goals. As a mom, one of the hardest things about providing healthy meals is deciding what to make for dinner. They helped solve this issue by offering detailed meal planning and recipes of the week.
After only 2 months of working with Erin Mulhern, my son lost over 9% body fat! Furthermore, my son gained more self confidence due to this change.
If you want the great results my son had, Erin's personalized nutrition program is essential. I would highly recommend MTVAC to anyone interested in improving their overall health and nutrition." -P. Lopez
I've struggled with digestive issues all my life and they worsened after having my second daughter. After seeing many doctors that kept prescribing me antibiotics and a specialist that finally diagnosed me with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), I decided to seek other ways to heal myself. I looked into herbal remedies and nutritionists. Both were costly and a little inconvenient. However, I couldn't afford to be sick anymore.
Then something wonderful happened; nutritionist Erin Mulhern provided individual nutritional consultations right at MTVAC, which I had recently joined.
How convenient is that? It was definitely worth every penny.
I saw almost immediate results after Erin put me on an individually tailored diet, which enabled my body to heal naturally without any medication. Furthermore, she taught me how to regain energy through certain foods and through lifestyle changes, which helped heal my tired adrenal glands.
I have so much more energy during the day and sleep better at night. Erin proved the fact that "you are what you eat."
Thanks to MTVAC, I feel better than I have in years. -E. M, Alexandria, Va.
It’s hard to avoid unhealthy junk food when the pantry is stocked with chips, soda, and deserts, which are technically only “for the kids or for your spouse.” Become much more effective – schedule a family nutritional consultation
Teaming up with those in your immediate family is a great way to get the support you need. Your nutritionist will work on nutritional family behavior modification and while not as extensive as the individual consultation; each family member will get a personalized nutritional assessment.
This is a great option for whole families or couples
MTVAC’s group nutrition programs are a great way to educate yourself on fundamental nutritional topics. The talks are enhanced by educational workshop activities
. Participants will be engaged at these interactive workshops where in depth information on a variety of topics is given. Valuable take home materials enhance the learning experience.
Groups range from high school athletes, post-partum Mom’s groups, adult tennis teams, and elementary school children. At MTVAC we also provide a free introductory nutrition seminar
to all members and prospective members.
We periodically hold an 8 week workshop series
, topics include:
- Losing unhealthy weight
- Regaining energy
- Handling blood sugar problems.
Imagine a world in which your employees took fewer sick days, were more productive and used fewer health benefits. This is an employer’s dream due to the consequential savings for the business
Times are tough and all employers are seeking effective ways to save. Preventative, corporate wellness programs effectively reduce health expenses
, while still retaining valuable employees, helping companies, such as yours, to save money.
If you would like to cut health care costs, increase productivity, and enhance morale at your office, contact MTVAC for further information on wellness programming.
We are almost half way through the Corporate Nutrition Program here at Van Metre headquarters, and I wanted to let you know what a positive experience it has been for everyone that has participated.
You provide great insight into what we should eat and drink, and you explain it well to the participants in the program. I have noticed that even though I am not eating less, I am losing some weight because I am making better choices. Also, I do not feel that sense of hunger that many people experience when they are on a “diet.”
I am seriously considering making this program a requirement for all of our employees. If they implement the dietary recommendations you make in the meetings, they will feel better and have more energy for work and for their personal lives.
Thanks again for your contribution to our companies’ success by making our employees more productive and energized.

I would like to express again the team's appreciation for your time in talking to us about the importance of good nutrition. Your interactive lesson on making better food choices not only before and after practice and regattas but in every day life was easy to understand, informative and very relative for today's teens.
Our team coaches also enjoyed your presentation, especially the chart giving suggestions on more healthy meal and snack options. I have since heard one team member ask another if the cheese puffs she was eating grew in nature and another two athletes comparing the nutrition aspects of sport drinks. These incidences show me that not only did you reach these teens but they have taken what you have said and started to integrate it into their lives.
Mount Vernon Crew appreciates your commitment to helping our athletes and hope to have you back next season to talk again to our team.
