Hi! Welcome to The Nourished Athlete.

I’m Beth Jones. I’m a mother, an educator, a female athlete specialist, and a wellness coach who focuses on active & athletic teen and masters athletes, and how to help them improve their wellness and performance through exploration, wellness habits, and engaging in play.

I write about outside-the-box approaches to athletic wellness and sports medicine from my experience working with girls and women as an athletic trainer over the past 20 years, as well as my own experience of being a life-long athlete. What I’ve discovered is that when we bring play back into our lives we start to excel personally, athletically, and academically. Our society seems to be pushing out play to make room for more rigor, responsibility, and sports specialization, and I’d like to challenge and change that approach. When we start connecting with who we are beyond our athletic identities, moving in more ways, getting outside, and claiming a voice in choosing our own path leads to less anxiety and depression, better performance, and improved self-confidence.

So, let’s get playing again - both our daughters and ourselves. I’m going to give you some tools to do so!

The Playground is divided into two communities:

  • Tales from The Playground: a free community that includes an email sent out every Thursday. It’s short and sweet, and gives you easy tools to start bringing play back into your daughter’s life. You also get access to select articles and podcasts.

  • Playground Parents: a paid community where you get access to even more tools and a direct connection to me:

    • Monthly Webinar. Each month I host a live webinar to discuss our focus topic in more detail. This is an opportunity for you to also connect for some Q&A and individualized support.

    • Downloads & Worksheets. You’ll get access to a growing library of downloads to help you incorporate wellness habits into your family’s life, learn about unlocking the superpowers that women possess as we start moving into adulthood, outdoor activities, and more.

    • And more. More exclusive content will be added as we grow, including guest expert interviews, exercise and nutrition resources, and even ideas to work more play into your daughter's academic and athletic performance goals.

  • The Nourished Athlete: a paid community, similar to Playground Parents, where you get access to tools focused on athletic performance and welness, and a direct connection to me:

    • Monthly Webinar. Each month I host a live webinar to discuss our focus topic in more detail. This is an opportunity for you to also connect for some Q&A and individualized support.

    • Downloads & Worksheets. You’ll get access to a growing library of downloads to help you incorporate athletic wellness habits into your training play, learn about unlocking the superpowers that female athletes possess and how to use them in order to reach your performance goals.

    • Community Chat: Connect with other group members to give and receive support at any time. This community runs on inspiration through shared stories and experiences, and engagement with like-minded athletes who are walking a similar path. The community also gives you direct access to Beth to get the support you need and ask the urgent questions that just cannot wait!

    • And more. More exclusive content will be added as we grow, including guest expert interviews, exercise and nutrition resources, and even ideas to work more play into your daughter's academic and athletic performance goals.

Become one founding member of The Playground community!

The Playground is a community for people who are fed up with the pressures and messages that our daughters are receiving around wellness and academic life. It’s a place for parents to explore alternative ways of educating our daughters, to learn how to support mental and physical wellness in our teens, and to introduce healthy habits that are actually fun and accessible for them.

This is a “wellness community” for parents who are looking for a different approach for their families than what’s currently out there. For those who are looking to move beyond what’s taught in schools and help their daughters create a life path that actually reflects their interests and goals, and to support them on their journey. It’s a place for us to escape from the messages regarding how we should raise our daughters, what their academic goals should be, and how they should be approaching their health, and instead start exploring their goals with them and return to play.

To return to that play that we encouraged when they were little. When we brought them to the playground and watched them act out their imagined adventures. Where we watched them climb, run, and laugh joyfully as they explored with friends. When we encouraged jumping in puddles and creating masterpieces in sand. The playground is where we all flourished when we were young, and where we nourished the ideas of who we wanted to become. It’s time to bring that back to our teens, but in a way that fits where they are at now.

So subscribe - for the free community or the paid. I’d love to have you join me.
