Nutrition Expet Heidi SkolnikRecently, I had the privilege of sitting down with Heidi Skolnik, M.S., C.D.N., FACSM, who is a nationally recognized leader in nutrition. She is founder and president of Nutrition Conditioning, which oversees the nutrition programs at The Juilliard School, The New York Knicks, School of American Ballet, and Fordham University Athletics. She has worked with the NY Giants Football team for 18 years and has consulted to professional teams for 25 years including the NFL, MLB, NBA, WNBA, MLS, as well as Olympic, collegiate, high school and recreational athletes.
