Mirka is a graduate of Nutrition Therapy Institute in Denver, Colorado. She is a Certified Nutrition Therapy Practitioner, a Master Nutrition Therapist and is a Health Coach and Nordic Instructor – PSIA Level I Certified. Her path to becoming a Nutrition Therapist was anything but easy or direct. She admits that she had to learn from her mistakes by “failing to realize how to get it right” many times as an endurance athlete. Those early experiences with falling short on nutrition, gave her the incentive to pursue a formal education in the field. Mirka’s thoughtful and understanding approach to guiding endurance athletes to achieve their goals begins with her own experiences. At different times in her life she has been an omnivore, a vegetarian and a vegan, so she understands the different nutritional challenges inherent in those lifestyles. As an endurance athlete herself, she also understands how important correct nutrition is in achieving superior performance and balance in everyday life. She believes that optimal nutrition requires a consistent focus on consuming the correct nutrients and fluids every day. That includes eating fresh, organic whole foods and taking the time to rest and recover from workouts. You can contact Mirka at M 100 Active Nutrition, LLC. 720-365-6335.
