Dr. Kleiner is the owner of High Performance Nutrition®, LLC, a consulting firm in Mercer Island, Washington. She is the Director of Science & Communication for Vitargo, Inc., and the High Performance Nutritionist for Seattle Storm. Dr. Kleiner is the author of eight books, including THE NEW POWER EATING®, The Good Mood Diet®, and POWERFOOD Nutrition.


She has a PhD in Nutrition and Human Performance and is a registered dietician, certified nutrition specialist, Co-Founder and Fellow of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, and a Fellow at the American College of Nutrition, where she received a Young Investigator Award for her research. She has been a member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association and the American College of Sports Medicine for decades.


“What I do is help people achieve peak performance from the locker room to the boardroom to the bedroom.” Dr. Kleiner’s world is nutrition and human performance and believes that appearance or body composition should be an athlete’s secondary priority. In fact, she focuses on body composition insofar as it contributes to performance.


“Translating the science of nutrition into food is the particular skill of a good dietician,” says Dr. Kleiner. To this end, she has always taught her clients about food from the get-go so that they think about their daily food intake in terms of the food itself rather than simply counting macros and calories. She is an advocate of what she calls “power eating”, or eating more instead of restricting yourself in order to gain greater energy, train harder, and, if part of your goal, lose fat.


Whether you are an elite athlete or someone who just wants to increase performance in mind and body, listen in as Dr. Kleiner shares her philosophies and ideas around nutrition that can help you reach your fitness goals without having to worry about your diet.
