Welcome to Trimarni Coaching and Nutrition, LLC
Marni Sumbal MS, RD, LD/N - A clinical dietitian and endurance triathlete with a passion for health, fitness, nutrition and life.
My goal is to change the way you live life by merging diet and fitness into complete balance.
As an exercise physiologist, 5x Ironman athlete and 2x Ironman World Championship finisher, I understand the importance of eating for fuel and training hard. As a clinical dietitian, lacto-ovo vegetarian, doggy mommy and health conscious individual, I believe it is important to respect the body with a wholesome and balanced diet, along with a daily dose of exercise and a positive "CAN DO" attitude.
Much of my adult life has been spent learning about the physiology of the human body, specifically during exercise, as well as understanding nutrition from a clinical and sport nutrition point of
view. Despite many years of formal education behind me and the desire to never stop learning, I love seeing what my body is capable of achieving on a daily basis.
I am enthusiastic about living an active and healthful life, all while developing a healthy relationship with food, the body and exercise. As I strive for balance in my personal life, I welcome daily challenges by relying on the powerful process of goal setting and working hard for success. Above all, I am not afraid to fail so long as I enjoy the journey.
I believe that we all have the ability to overcome obstacles and reap the rewards of living a quality lifestyle. I do not feel as if there is a "best, only or right" way as to how our society should live and function because we are all unique. We are all in our own personal journey and as long as you are happy, who's to say that you aren't healthy?
I support an individual lifestyle that is balanced between a healthy diet and a consistent exercise routine. In order to achieve balance, I believe in challenging the mind and body by embracing change. I believe that we must be committed to proper nutrition and attainable fitness goals in order to reduce risk for disease, perform at an optimal level and to increase the chance of living a quality-filled life.
Here at Trimarni Coaching and Nutrition, LLC, I am dedicated to helping YOU live a better lifestyle. In regard to reaching body composition goals, performance gains and improving overall health, I believe that a healthy relationship with food and the body is a fundamental priority.
Life is a journey - don't rush the process. Optimize daily nutrition, maximize sport nutrition (what you eat before, during and after workouts) and consider other areas in your life that can bring you balance. Sleep, stress management, a positive attitude, not smoking and monitoring individual strengths and weaknesses will also help you find success in life.
When learning how to appreciate food for fuel and for longevity amd exercing for fitness gains, it is important to understand that there are no quick fixes. The body must be respected when training for an athletic event and on a daily basis. My goal is to change the way people view, speak about and consume food and inspire, motivate and educate society as to the most balanced way to eat for fuel. In terms of exercise or training, I believe in quality over quantity. The most optimal way to improve fitness is to find the best way to improve with the least amount of physiological training stress. I do not support fad diets (or off-limit food lists), extreme training/fitness plans or meal plans and I accept that life is a journey and we must make every day count.
Always aim for progress and not perfection.
If you want to create positive and lasting lifestyle habits, consistency in life will determine what you do today, how you perform tomorrow and what will happen in the future.
