Dr. Stacy Sims is a senior research scientist, innovator and entrepreneur in human performance, specifically sex differences in training, nutrition, and environmental conditions.

Prior to working at the University of Waikoto, where she is now, she served as an exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist at Stanford University from 2007 to 2012, where she specialised in sex differences of environmental and nutritional considerations for recovery and performance.

It’s safe to say that Dr. Stacy Sims is an expert when it comes to women's health and performance. Taking all her knowledge and available research, Dr. Sims released her first book ROAR, a comprehensive physiology-based nutrition and training guide to help women work WITH their unique physiology to achieve optimal performance, body composition and health throughout the different stages of our lives.

Today Dr. Sims and I will be:

  • De-mystifying the menstrual cycle and highlighting how the different phases affect your fitness
  • How to periodise your training to match your cycle for optimal strength gains
  • Fluctuations in fuel utilisation in the follicular versus luteal phase and what nutrition protocols will help maximise your performance
  • How she coined the term "Women Are Not Small Men" and the strong need for more research on women in sport
