Release your true potential. Race Faster.

Race Faster's Stephen Smith provides athletes with a complete solution to improving their performance. Providing bespoke performance nutrition services and sports coaching, supported by a state of the art Human Performance laboratory.

Knowing your individual physiology removes the guesswork from your nutrition and training, to help you release your true potential and achieve your goals.

Stephen left a promising career as an engineer to pursue his true passion: sports science. His interest in nutrition began through wanting to improve his own sporting performance. However, this interest developed into a desire to pursue nutrition as a career and ultimately help other athletes improve their health, performance and achieve their goals.

Since then, he has worked with athletes from a wide range of sports including motorsport, mountain bike, triathlon, cycling and mixed martial arts. He has also supported expedition crews rowing across the Atlantic.

Stephen believes in a food-first, evidence-informed and scientific approach to working with athletes, translating complex scientific research into sustainable and practical advice to improve athletic performance.
