This week, we meet 53-year Allison Hunt, a Los Gatos-based rower with the Chinook Performance Racing Team. With her team, she has earned seventeen gold medals in the past year alone, including the six gold medals that she and her team recently picked up in a clean sweep at the 2017 US Rowing Masters National Championships in Tennessee. When not in the water, Allison is an Eating for Performance Coach and works with Advocare, a nutritional supplement company. In this interview, Allison candidly talks about how the onset of menopause affected her as an athlete, and how nutrition helped her subsequently reach new heights in her sport.
