Refinement in the minutiae sets champions apart from contenders. At CAPONUTRITION, we cater to a team of accomplished athletes, employing evidence-based sports nutrition to elevate their performance.
We operate as a cohesive force, driven by the same burning desire for victory shared by our athletes. This symbiotic relationship propels us to accompany our champions worldwide, providing an unparalleled tailored coaching experience.
We fight the misconceptions about professional athletes' diets. It's a common belief that their meals are bland and uninspiring, debunking this notion and proving that performance nutrition can be both delectable and effective.
We firmly believe in nourishing the body while satisfying the taste buds. Our athletes enjoy the flavors of culinary excellence, including indulging in a plate of pasta on the very same day they achieve record-breaking performances. We want to redefine the perception of athlete nutrition, showing that enjoyment and exceptional performance can coexist harmoniously.
Among our elite athletes:
○ ADCC gold and bronze medalists (Tanquinho, 2019/ Leon, 2022)
○ IBJJF world champions (Musumeci, 2021 and Leon, 2022)
○ UFC title contenders (Vettori and Murphy, 2021)
○ UFC performance of the night award holders (Vettori, Medić, Tsarukyan, Shahbazyan)
○ NHL and NFL players
○ Rugby 15 national team members
Food is not just macronutrients and kilocalories; it holds a profound socio-cultural significance in our lives. Yet, amidst our relentless work schedules and mounting responsibilities, we often overlook this truth, reducing meals to mere obligations rather than embracing them with a genuine passion.
Every dish has a captivating story, and our unwavering commitment at CAPONUTRITION is to highlight those narratives while cultivating a healthy relationship with performance nutrition.
Our focus is solely on athletes, from seasoned professionals to aspiring amateurs and passionate recreational enthusiasts. We firmly believe that sports are indispensable to the holistic well-being puzzle, whether you're honing your skills for a leisurely Sunday ride along the sun-kissed roads of Malibu or preparing to claim the coveted UFC belt.
In our world, carbohydrates reign as the vital fuel propelling your performance, while we recognize that recovery holds equal importance to rigorous training sessions. Rest assured, indulging in a plate of pasta adorned with luscious pesto, when savored within the proper context, has never hindered anyone on their quest for optimal weight management.
Our mission is clear: to guide and empower a select group of athletes, enabling them to unlock their full potential by optimizing body composition, enhancing recovery, and achieving peak overall performance through the guiding principles of evidence-based nutrition.
I have known Dr. Capodaglio for three years, and we have been constantly in touch to discuss traditional Italian recipes that I have been using working as a private chef. Every time we talk about food, I am amazed by how he can explain the scientific aspect of a dish, breaking it down ingredient by ingredient.
His strong formal education background meets his passion for food and tradition, making him a unique interpreter of Italian performance nutrition in the US.
If you want to learn about the Italian culinary heritage and its compatibility with a healthy lifestyle, CAPONUTRITION will not disappoint your expectations!
As a business owner, my days are jampacked full of meetings. However, I am also a competitive athlete and before working with CAPONUTRITION, I often ran out of energy and was exhausted when I arrived at training or so tired that I could not concentrate in my conference calls. Dr Capodaglio has been a miracle worker in smoothening out my energy levels so I can peak for the right activity. Especially leading up to competitions, I no longer worry about weight or food because I know the protocols will have variety (not bland!) and give me the energy to win. Since working with Dr Capodaglio, I have medaled at international major at the Adult level, often beating full-time competitors almost 20 years younger than me.
I work between Los Angeles and NYC. Running a tailoring brand on the country's two coasts is a highly demanding job, and I need to be in top shape all year round regardless of red-eye flights and multiple meetings. Working with CAPONUTRITION helped me understand how my body works. However, the main benefit of our journey was learning the principles determining balanced and sustainable eating. Being born in Italy, it is essential to keep my Mediterranean roots, Dr Capodaglio does not ostracize carbohydrates; he teaches when is their proper timing and pairing. CAPONUTRITION has a unique vision, and I strongly recommend it to those who visited Italy and came back missing the tasty food they enjoyed in Rome, Florence, and Venice.
