Meet Petra Rack
“I will work with you so that you can perform your best on the field and optimally recover afterwards. Each day you have a chance to improve and I can help you make the most of each opportunity through nutrition”
Originally from Germantown, Wisconsin, Petra recently moved back from living in Texas for the past 6 years gaining her Bachelor's in Dietetics (2018) and Master's in Kinesiology (2020) degrees from Texas Christian University. While completing her master’s degree she worked as the department's Research Dietitian and completed her master’s thesis on “The effect of diet composition on performance, energy expenditure, blood lipids, cognitive function, and mood in highly trained cyclists.” She has had numerous other experiences within performance nutrition. The United States Olympic Committee-Combat & Acrobat Sports, TCU Athletics, and The Packers Football Organization all have broadened her experience working with various individuals ranging in age, sport, level of experience and commitment to their performance. Her goal with each of these organizations has been to influence behavior change by increasing the awareness of the power of positive nutrition and creating innovative ways to put these skills into practice.
Petra is ecstatic to have joined the My Sports Dietitian team as a Performance Dietitian working with her awesome team of dietitians and athletes to help them perform at their elite level by nourishing their bodies and minds.
