Greetings! I'm Ken Roberts, an athlete, a martial artists, a fitness trainer, a veteran, a father, and a nutrition and dietetic professional. All of these things together build knowledge and practical experience.
I know and understand the importance of nutrition on performance and wellness, which is why I founded Top Nutrition and Performance, LLC.
Top Nutrition and Performance, LLC., has two divisions that include Training & Education and Communication.
The Training & Education division focuses on providing science-driven performance coaching and evidence-based nutrition coaching and education. It is my goal to help people live the active healthy lifestyle they've always wanted. Whether that is improving their health to spend more time with their kids or grandkids, changing their body composition for health or sports performance, or wanting to gain a competitive edge in a sport they may already be playing.
The Communication division is the public outreach for health and science education. We offer a podcast called Veteran Performance and Wellness Bites (VPWB) Podcast. VPWB is a podcast specially designed to share resources and education to the veteran population, my brother and sisters that I served with everyday for twenty years. The podcasts are short to moderate in length, and consist of interviews of veterans sharing their stories; as well as education for performance and wellness from professionals and other experts that tie the content all together. VPWB podcast launches this spring.
Pictured to the left is a photo of me crossing the finish line at the USA Triathlon National Championships in August of 2017. The kit I am wearing is the US Military Endurance Sports (USMES) kit. In June of 2017 I retired from the U.S. Marine Corps after 20 years of service. The information on this website does not represent USMES or the Marine Corps, rather it shows that I am a proud member and supporter of my fellow veterans. As a service member I proudly served my country, and now as a nutrition and sports professional I continue to serve my community by helping others through my veteran owned and operated business.
