Pierce Cumpstone

“Easy communication, friendly, enthusiastic help, and a sense of comfort from the get-go – my experience with FWDfuel was all positive. Not all experiences are identical, but I can assure you that you’ll see progess with whatever your goals are…There is nothing to lose and everything to gain. With an aspect as critical as nutrition is to sport and athletic performance, you would be doing yourself a disservice by not pursuing it. While the internet is a great tool, it can quickly lead to information overload, overthinking, and ultimately additional and unnecessary stress (it happened to me). FWDfuel helped cut through all the misinformation I ingested when I was doing my own Google searches.”

Stacy Tidmore

“I’ve been fortunate to work with top-tier individuals in functional medicine, and their confidence in Kylene is immense. Her ability to analyze lab reports, physician’s notes, and our own comments to create recommendations that are actually compassionate and do-able always amazes me. She juggles so much information when she does this, and I realize her deep training and experience allows her to view the role of nutrition in a way I’ve never encountered with others in the field. I also love that she works with athletes and understands how to help us meet our exercise and performance goals.”

Harold C.

“Gaining a knowledge in proper nutrition helped change my life in a positive way. It somewhat changed my life. Before Kylene showed me how to eat properly and nourish my body I felt very sluggish after practice or a workout. I feel I have gained an edge because I have more energy then ever before. I now view my body like a car. Without the proper gas, my car will never last ! If you never fuel your body with the correct nutrients it will never last over the course of the season. Thanks Kylene for helping me maximize my potential as a collegiate football player!”

Sam K.

“Following a structured nutrition program FINALLY gave me that extra edge I was always looking for in my athletic career. It helped me perform at the best of my ability physically and mentally for the entire game, practice, lift, etc.”

Rachel K.

“After seeing numerous GI physicians without any success, I finally decided to take a functional nutrition approach. For the first time in years, I was able to run without GI distress! Thank you Kylene for helping me to compete in college and beyond!!”
