From Athletes and Coaches

"In the 15 years of our soccer camp, the EATING FOR ATHLETES seminar has had as much of a positive impact on our campers as anything we do on the field." J. Burch, Men's Soccer Coach - Centre College, Danville, KY

"Two years ago I was fortunate enough to meet Curt Thompson and he shared with me information that helped me lose 37lbs and changed the way I look at and think about food. This is by far the most beneficial nutrition lecture I have ever heard. Curt Thompson has the cutting edge lecture that will open your eyes and minds to the reality of our diets. Through my personal experience I now share this information with my athletes to help them in their sport and their lives." Michael Fulton, Women's Soccer Coach - Transylvania University , Lexington, KY

"Coach Thompson is a master at being able to breakdown difficult skills into more simple learning components. His players experience immediate growth in their technical skills due to his unique teaching methodologies. Combine that with his nutrition counseling and Coach Thompson brings out the best in players in both their personal and sporting lives, no matter what age." P. LeSueur - Former Professional player in the NASL, Administrator/Coach in the WUSA, Four time National Champion, and College Professor

"I want to personally thank you for giving the nutrition talk at Centre Soccer Camp two summers ago. It truly has made a difference in my life. I came home chatting up a storm about how much information I had learned. My mom was about two seconds away from duct taping my mouth. I sincerely thank you for sharing your wealth of information. I now eat a ton more vegetables than I used to, my mom and I make our own bread, and I've pretty much given up almost anything that isn't natural or very close to it. My mom and I go shopping together and read food labels. I just wanted to tell you that you have sincerely changed my perspective and even my doctor and my soccer coach have noticed differences in my speed, health, etc. Thank you for being at camp and for imparting your words of wisdom on myself. Thank you." R.Todd - High School Soccer Player, Georgetown, IN

"Curt Thompson is one of the best in teaching the game of soccer. He views the game as being very simple and does a wonderful job implementing both technique and tactics into his sessions. Players are motivated to play at their highest levels because of his passion and energy he puts into the practices. I have the utmost respect for his talents and his commitment. Coach Thompson is one of the main reasons why the Centre Women's Soccer Camp has record numbers every year." J. Hoffman, Women’s Soccer Coach – Centre College, Danville, Kentucky

"I met Curt Thompson about four years ago through the Centre Women's Soccer Camps in Danville, KY. After sitting down with Curt after camp this past summer (2004), I finally decided to take control of my nutrition and health. I changed my nutrition for the better by cutting fast foods, deep fried foods, sodas, and sweets from my diet. As a result I feel happier, healthy, and have more energy. In addition I have lost 10 lbs. since my nutrition change. Curt's enthusiasm and passion for helping people to discover the power of proper nutrition is both inspirational and contagious! He opened my eyes to the benefits of eating healthy and I have shared this knowledge not only my family, but with many of the athletes I work with today." J. Chisley - Girl's Soccer Coach - Boyle County Middle School, Danville, KY

"Coach Thompson opened my eyes to how poorly I ate and why I weighed what I did. After one year of eating well with no soda, almost no sugar, and no fried foods, I lost over 30 pounds. I can tell a difference in how I feel, how fast I am, how I play, and how I look. I not only felt better, but played better and my coaches noticed. I have Coach Thompson to thank for all of this and much more." R. Olds - FCHS Soccer, Frankfort, KY

From Business Owners and Employees

"The NUTRITION TO WIN seminar was extremely informative. My afternoon energy crashes are gone and I feel less stressed."
J. Rappaport, Child and Family Therapist - , Westminister, CO

"I used to have that 3:00 PM crash, the feeling I needed to take a nap or eat whatever juke food I could find. Now, my energy stays steady all afternoon and I get a lot more done at work. I knew I had to eat better but until hearing the Nutrition Coaches seminar, I didn't know how. Curt Thompson also spoke to my under 14 girls soccer team and their parents. Since then, many of the parents have noticed a significant improvement in their daughters performance both on and off the field."
R. Russo - Purchasing Manager and National licensed Soccer Co, Saratoga, NY

From Students and Teachers

"IF YOU HAVE EVER thought about having a nutrition speaker come to your school now is the time and Curt Thompson is the speaker to have. Curt's no nonsense interactive approach keeps students of all ages on the edge of their seats. My own kids heard the program and were as WOWED as I was. This program should be a must for every child in America, whether athlete or couch potato. Curt does a great job explaining and illustrating the mistakes we are making our diets today. And the statistics prove we are making mistakes. 65% Americans overweight or obese. We have got to make a change and hearing Curt speak has changed how the many here think about food as well as how we now choose to eat. Thanks Curt for opening our eyes." C. Eason - Sayre School, Lex., Ky

"The NUTRITION TO WIN seminar was by far the best nutrition talk I have ever heard, and I have heard many over the last 12 years."
T. Davis, Head Athletic Trainer - Mercer County High School, KY
