Sports Clinic Dietitian
Meet Conrad – Accredited Sport Dietitian
NZRD, SDA, DipBS, BAppSc, MDiet
Conrad Goodhew is the Sports Clinic’s sport dietitian. The difference that Conrad provides, is that he brings a performance mindset to an industry full of weight loss fads. Not only is he an expert in exercise nutrition, but his Dietetic study also brings a clinical element to the delivery of advice. He understands that even the most elite sports people are still humans, and the advice is similar for the everyday exercise enthusiast too.
Conrad was brought in in a typical kiwi household in Whangarei. Since the age of 4, Conrad has been playing sport. Participating in everything from rugby and cricket to squash and golf – all at provincial and international representative level. On top of this he loves the outdoors where he surfs and dives (among everything else). More recently he has run several ultra-marathons and got back into his golf. As well as intending on completing the coast to coast longest day in 2024.
Conrad has travelled all around the country studying at both Otago and Massey Universities. Since graduating, Conrad moved to Christchurch and currently works in professional sport (including the Crusaders and Black Ferns hub) and runs his own private practice. He sees lots of different athletes from golfers to cross fitters, to multi-sporters and weightlifters (and everything in between). But he doesn’t only work with athletes, he also works with everyone that “exercises for a purpose”.
His ethos is “let’s not overcomplicate this eating thing” as nutrition is fast becoming a complex space, when it really doesn’t need to.
Conrad travels around NZ conducting talks and workshops, whilst balancing his own private practice clients and staff. If you want to connect with him, visit his website at www.conradgoodhew.com/contact or follow him on Instagram and Facebook.
