At College Bound Nutrition, we focus on just three things:
Adolescent Athlete Nutrition
Nutrition for the Sport You Play
Clean Nutrition Free of HSAA & NCAA-Banned Ingredients

Why I Started CBN
My name is Austin Gere. I was a High School and D1 Collegiate Athlete. For me, it was nearly impossible to eat three quality meals a day as a teenager. At most, you have a decent dinner and that is about it. Getting up early for school with no breakfast on most days, a deficient lunch, after-school sports, homework, and maintaining a healthy social life, most adolescents do not get the proper nutrition they need to be athletes.
I started to develop the concept of College Bound Nutrition as a Freshman in College while competing across the country in D1 Track & Field. Looking back through my High School and College years I began to see the better players had higher levels of Athleticism not skills.
SKILLS ARE TAUGHT, BUT ATHLETICISM IS DEVELOPED!
Athleticism is FUELED with proper NUTRITION, and Athletic Training. When you focus on just one aspect of a sport i.e. skills, athletes don’t develop Athleticism.
Athleticism is what makes athletes stand out from their peers and progress onto higher levels of competition. High Athleticism Players like Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter and Tom Brady need Fuel for their 7 day a week practices, training & conditioning sessions, and the occasional game mixed in.
Middle School, High School, and College Athletes share similarly demanding schedules between school teams, rec teams, travel teams, practices, and games.
The difference is Jeter and Brady have multi-million-dollar coaching, training, and nutritional teams to keep their Athleticism Fueled.
Most adolescent athletes’ plateau before they become College Recruitable. One reason is the Nutrition needed for neuromuscular growth is depleted by their extra busy schedules, and this affects their Athleticism.
