Welcome to Powerplay

Self-employed since 1995 (as Power Play: Nutrition, Fitness, Performance) in the health and fitness industry. Nanci is a Registered Dietitian, Personal Trainer and an NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist currently completing her PhD in “Nutritional Science, Genetics and Athletic Performance” at the University of Toronto. Nanci specializes in advanced sports nutrition as an international consultant, and she is currently researching high performance athletes and their unique genetic response to dietary nutrients and supplements based on their genotype (DNA). Her research will also look at associations of performance and body type to sport/muscle function genes in this athletic population. Nutrigenomic testing (via saliva test – see genetic testing page) includes your unique response to 7 key nutrients as well as the first ‘gluten sensitivity’ genotype *NEW* Our Sport-Nutrigenomix® test will be launched in 2-3 weeks.  Details to come. Our goal is to help athletes reach their genetic potential by aligning their diet and a some aspects of their training to their DNA. Stay tuned!
