• High Intensity Training Interview of the Month: Richard Wolff, RD

    Where do you get your nutritional information and advice from?

    The most qualified people to give you such advice are R.D.’s, or Registered Dieticians.  If you’ve ever spoken to one, you know exactly what I mean–they are like walking encyclopedias of nutrition info.  No financially motivated mumbo-jumbo, just the straight facts.

    The problem, of course, is that most RD’s don’t even work out, much less know anything about high intensity training.  So even though you feel like they’re teaching you something about nutrition, you’re not sure how to apply it to your own situation in the interest of facilitating training progress.

    So just because I love you so much, I found a guy who is both a Registered Dietician and a High Intensity Training expert.  In fact, he runs his own training facility, Medfitness in St. Charles, Illinois.  He will also be a featured speaker at this year’s HIT Resurgence Conference in Minneapolis Minnesota (more on that later).

    This month our featured guest is Richard Wolff, RD, LDN.

    As the founder and president of MEDFITNESS, Richard has dedicated his life to helping people live well. As an educator, he has taught at one of America’s top 100 hospitals.  As a Registered Dietitian and Licensed Nutritionist, Richard serves on the Nutrition Advisory Board at Northern Illinois University.  Richard is licensed to practice medical nutrition therapy and completed an internship in clinical nutrition at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago, IL.

    Richard has been captivating audiences and readers for over 25 years.  His continuing education workshops have been presented to fitness professionals at major universities throughout the United States including the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and the University of Pennsylvania. Richard has been a featured speaker at the nationally acclaimed Fight the Fat program in Dyersville, Iowa and his articles have been featured in award-winning publications including the Kane County Chronicle, The Daily Herald, Weightlifting USA, Nautilus America’s Fitness Magazine, Club Industry Maganzie and Personal Fitness Professional.

    Having worked as a consultant with the American Cancer Society, the Discovery Health Channel, and Health Management Resources (the nation’s leading provider of medical weight management services), there’s nothing Richard loves more than seeing people succeed at living well.

    So grab a veggie burger and a wheat grass shake and listen in as Richard schools us on:

    • His early days with Nautilus, and how he eventually opened Medfitness
    • The 3 nutritional keys you need to build more muscle (I told you-I love you)
    • Why you need to “respect the power of the overall diet”
    • What eating has to do with training intensity
    • What “protein retention” is, and why it’s important to you (this is big)
    • Which supplements you need, and which ones are a waste of time
    • And much, much more!

    3. Awesome interview with great content and information. Thanks guys!

    4. Great information gentlemen, its nice to hear about nutrition from someone who is actually qualified to do so. In HIT circles today all you hear about is primal and paleo diets….from individuals out of their field.
